Hinshaw of Boone county, Mo., age 49 years, 9 months, and 27 days.  She was born in Randolph county, Indiana and came with her parents at an early age to Boone County, Missouri and was raised near Burlington.  

She was married to J. C. Griffin April 26, 1873 and to them were born ten children, four of whom preceded her to the better land; the living are J. W. Griffin of Englewood, Mrs. Dollie Bell of St. Louis, Mrs. Libbie York of Bloodland and Mattie, Birdie, and Mearl.  

She was taken sick January fifteenth in the morning and died the sixteenth at four in the afternoon.  On Saturday night she had quite a play with her little girls to whom she was greatly attached.  She expressed that she did not want to sell the farm, as she felt better and more like she was at home than she ever did and that we would soon be so we could enjoy life to the fullest extent.  

She united with the Methodist church when she was sixteen years old and has lived an exemplary Christian life until her death.  She was ever ready to help those in need and to hold out a willing hand to those in sickness and distressing hours.  She was consecreated to her family, always striving to elevate her children, and ever ready to teach them in the right way and correct their faults.  She is gone, but not forgotten, and shines as an eternal star in Heaven.

J.C. Griffin, a former long-time resident of this (Pulaski) County, but for the past 16 years residing near Gravette, Ark., passed away at his home after a short illness of heart trouble and cancer of the liver, Monday evening, June 1, (1931) about 6 o'clock, aged 78 years.  

About 50 years ago, he was united in marriage to Tina Henshaw, in Calloway county, Mo., and they moved immediately thereafter to this County, and to this union 13 children were born, the following being those who survive: (John) Willis Griffin of Columbia, Mo., Mrs. Beatrice Monroe, of Dewey, Okla., Mrs. Mattie York, of Tulsa, Okla., and Mrs. John Welch, of Waynesville.  

His first wife passed away about 26 years ago, and he was later united in marriage to Bertha Adkins, 5 children surviving by the last marriage, besides his widow, as follows: Mrs. Ray Phillips, Henry, Willie, Earl and Georgia Griffin.  

Until about 16 years ago, he spent the greater part of his life in the south part of the County, near what is known as Old Tribune, where he was well known.  Besides his large family, his kind heart found room to rear several other homeless children.  

Funeral and burial services were conducted at Gravette, Ark.
