"MRS. FRANK DANIEL DIED
November 1, 1939, following an extended illness at her home, south of Urich, and about 1 1/2 miles north of White Oak Church. She and her son, Arlyn, made their home together on what is known as the old Swackhammer place, the past several years. She was endeared to all who knew her - a calm, gracious gentlewoman, with an ever ready smile for all who knew her and a word of cheer for everyone.
Susan Frances Cheesman was born February 3, 1867, at Mulberry Grove, in Bond County, Illinois, and came to Missouri when three years old, living at Huntingdale. Here she was united in marriage October 15, 1889, to Frank C. Daniel, also of Huntingdale who died almost six years ago. To them were given six children, who survive and who are, two sons, Arlyn A., of the home; Idus L. of Holden; four daughters, Miss Lella Daniel, Buckner, Mo.; Mrs. Ira Wall, Denton; Mrs. P. A. McMillan, Sibley; Mrs. B. W. Hendrex, Adrian. There are 12 grandchildren. She is also survived by two brothers, John A., Cheesman, Kellyville, Okla., and W. J. Cheesman of Coffeyville, Kans.
Mrs. Daniel gave her heart to God and joined the M. E. South, Church at an early age and since, faithfully followed the Master. She was a devoted wife, a dear, sweet mother and grandmother, unexcelled in neighborly deeds and a true friend. She gave cheer to neighborhood gatherings, and was generous to go and help when needed.
Funeral services were conducted Friday at 2:00 p.m. at the Lucas Methodist Church by the paster, Rev. Wilson Branstetter. Burial in the Urich cemetery beside her husband.
Pallbearers were Carl Dennis, Chas. Hunt, Ross Perry, Edgar Hart, near the home, Newt Shipman and Alpha Zellers of Hartwell."
