THE WESTERN STAR, 24 September 1909

Mrs. H. O. Holderby died at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22, 1909, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H. W. Chapman, in this city. She had been in poor health for over a year and for the past 6 or 7 months had been confined to her bed. Death came peacefully and apparently with no illness. Mrs. Holderby displayed remarkable patience and fortitude. Very seldom did she utter a word of complaint, she rather seeming to be
reconciled and in every way prepared for the event of death.

Anna Martha Johnson was born on March 16, 1856, in Iowa, but at an early age she moved to Macon county, Missouri, where she lived all of her girlhood days. On February 7, 1876, she was married to Hiram O.
Holderby, who, with three sons and two daughters, survive her. Mr. and Mrs. Holderby moved from Missouri to Comanche county, Kansas, in 1884,
landing here in March of that year. With the exception of the past few years, which were spent in Lawton, Okla., they have continuously lived in this county.

Mrs. Holderby was a woman of many excellent qualities. She was kind to all, a good neighbor and a devoted wife and mother. For several years she had been a member of the M. E. church. The funeral services were conducted at 4 p.m. yesterday in the Presbyterian church, the pastor, Rev. J. C. Bigbee, being in charge, Rev. C. E. Brown of the M. E. church
assisting. Burial was made in the Coldwater cemetery. The surviving children are: Mrs. H. W. Chapman, Mrs. D. E. Taylor, Grover and Cash Holderby of this county and James Holderby of Lawton, Okla. To them and
to the bereaved husband the sympathy of all is extended.
