THE WESTERN STAR, 14 January 1893
Obituary of MRS. ROBERT KING

Mrs. King, wife of Robert King, who resides at Comanche City, this county, died very suddenly and unexpectedly last Monday morning at 7 o'clock. Her death was caused from internal hemorrhage. She gave birth to a 12 pound son at 6 o'clock, and an hour later she breathed her last. A messenger was sent for Dr. Laughead at 2 o'clock Monday morning, but as 40 miles had to be traveled going and coming, it was 8 o'clock when the doctor reached the King residence, and the spirit of the mother and wife had fled. Death is no respector of persons and today there is left a vacancy, a motherless babe, a heart broken husband and eight children. The funeral took place Tuesday, and the remains were laid away in the Avilla cemetery. The family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends.
