Mrs. Andrew Ellicott Gone

The following two articles were published in the Van Tassell Pioneer

Thursday afternoon at 5 o'clock Mrs. Carrie Ellicott passed away at the ranch home north of Coffee Siding, the immediate cause being congestion of the lungs.

Mrs. Ellicott, who was in her seventy-second year, came with her husband and children from Clarion, Iowa, to Harrison in the springs of 1907, and has resided on the ranch near Coffee Siding since, where Mrs. Ellicott will be missed, for she has always been found a model neighbor and a friend to everybody.

The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the sorrowing husband and children - Miss Lettie Ellicott, and Messrs. Don and Earl Ellicott - all of whom live here.

The funeral will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. from the Methodist church at Harrison, with interment at Harrison cemetery.
