THE WESTERN STAR, 22 October 1915

After an illness of about 7 weeks, Mrs. D. B. Denny died at 1 o'clock p.m. on last Sunday, October 17, 1915, at her home near Lexington, Clark-co. Funeral services were conducted at the home at 10 o'clock a.m.
on Tuesday, Rev. P. I. Mawdsley of the Protection M. E. church being in charge. A large number of the neighbors and friends were in attendance at the funeral, and with each one there was a sense of personal loss
because of the separation from them of a good friend and neighbor. Interment was made in the Protection cemetery.

Deceased, with her family, was one of the early settlers in the western part of Comanche-co., and she well knew what pioneer privations meant. But with an abiding faith in the country and with a courage that
faltered not at difficulties, the family toiled on, and finally shared in the comforts and conveniences of more prosperous days. She was one of the best of neighbors - kind, sympathetic and generous. Her constant
devotion to her family, her patient, uncomplaining life of loving service for others will ever be an inspiration and a pleasant memory with all who knew her.

Mary Christenia Davenport was born in Louisa-co., Iowa, on June 11, 1846. Her age at the time of death was, therefore, 69 years, 4 months and 6 days. At the age of 9, she moved with her parents to Clark-co.,
Iowa. In that county, on September 11, 1875, she was united in marriage with David R. Denny. In the year 1881 the family moved from Iowa to Sumner-co., Kans., where they lived for about 3 years. In the spring of 1885 they came farther west, settling in the western part of this county. In the year 1894, nine years later, they bought land and located a few miles further west, near Lexington, where they continued to live. Mrs. Denny is survived by the husband, three sons and two daughters. The children are: Fred, John, Will, Miss Sadie and Mrs. C. C. Towner, all of whom live in this county or in Clark-co. Five children died in infancy.
The surviving relatives have the sincere sympathy of many friends.
