THE WESTERN STAR, 16 January 1916

Mrs. Frank Campbell, who was well known to all old settlers in the western part of this county, died at 7:15 p.m. on January 6, 1916, in Monticello, Ark. The body was brought on Sunday to this city for burial.
Quite a large number of the former neighbors of the family to this county met the funeral party at the train and from there proceeded to the Coldwater cemetery, where brief funeral services were conducted by Rev. Ralph W. Wyrick of the Methodist church, and where interment was made.

Margaret E. Hooks was born in Morroco, Indiana, in the year 1855. While quite young she moved with her grandfather to Holton, Kansas. There, in May 1883, she was married to Frank Campbell. A year or two after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Campbell moved to the then new county of Comanche. They settled on a claim just south of the former W. B. Newman farm, between here and Protection. Later they moved to a farm a few miles north of Protection where they lived until about 13 years ago when they moved to arkansas. After living there a few years the family moved to Cole Camp, Mo., where they continued to live until a few weeks ago, when they moved to near Monticello, Ark. Mrs. Campbell had been a sufferer from diabetes for four or five years. Upon their arrival in Monticello last week and before the family had time to get located in
their new home. Mrs. Campbell took worse and died shortly afterwards in a hotel where they were stopping.

Mrs. Campbell was a devoted wife and mother and a good neighbor. All who knew her respected her and held her in great esteem. She had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church for many years, and her life
always conformed to a high standard of Christian living. Her death has brought to many friends in this county a profound sense of sorrow. She is survived by the husband and one son, Earl, aged about 20 years. One
son, Charles died at the age of two, while the family lived in this county.
