Daughter of John Martin And Wife Of Elias Nunn Who Died 17 Years Ago
Mrs. Margaret Nunn, a splendid and highly respected old lady of near Linton, died last Sunday night at the home of her grand daughter, Mrs. Conrad Thomas, where she had been for several days.
Mrs. Nunn suffered a paralytic stroke before Christmas and never gotten entirely over the effects of this trouble. This and the decline to advanced years caused her death.
Mrs. Nunn was seventy eight years of age. She was a daughter of the late John Martin and had lived all his life in Trigg county. Four children survive her as follows: Millard and Robert L. Nunn and Mrs. J. B. Futrell, of near Linton, and Mrs. Nola Turner, of Poplar Bluff, Mo.
Two sisters and one brother also survive. They are Mrs. Bluford Thomas, of near Canton, Mrs. Mary Minton, three miles north of Cadiz and Felix G. Martin, who has been spending the last few months in the county.
Mrs. Nunn was a woman of unusual strength of character, kind and considerate to family and friends, and will be greatly missed in the neighborhood where she had lived so long.
The husband, Elias Nunn, to whom she was married, in early woman hood died seventeen years ago.
She was a Baptist in religion.
Burial took place Monday afternoon at the family grave yard.
A large crowd of friends and sorrowing relatives were present to pay a last tribute of respect to a splendid old lady who has gone to her heavenly home.
