THE WESTERN STAR, 23 April 1915
Obituary of MARTHA J. KNABE

Mrs. Martha J. Knabe, wife of W. G. Knabe, died at 11:30 o'clock p.m. on last Monday, April 13, at the home of her son, I. E. Wares, in this city, after an illness of about 2 weeks' duration. On April 6 she gave birth to a son. Unfavorable conditions set in a few days later and the best that loving hands and medical skill could do proved unavailing toward restoring her health. Mrs. Knabe was brought to this city on last Sunday from her home a few miles northeast of Coy and about 24 miles
southeast of Coldwater.

Deceased had lived in the neighborhood of Coy for about 12 years. She was well liked by those who knew her. Her death elicits the most profound sympathy for the bereaved husband and other relatives. Mrs. Knabe was formerly the wife of Joe Wares, who is well known in the southern part of this county. She had for several years been a faithful and consistent member of the Christian church. The surviving near relatives are: The husband, Wm. G. Knabe, and 4 sons, I. E., D. A., E.
M., and H. R. Wares, all of whom live in or near the city; also the infant son, now 17 days old. Mrs. Knabe's age at the time of her death was 46 years, 1 month and 20 days.

Funeral services were conducted from the Christian church on Thursday at 2:30 p.m., the pastor, Elder J. H. Bristor, being in charge. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.
