Russellvill, Kentucky – Logan County

Mrs.  Warder Linton

Friends throughout the city and county were shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Eugenia Howard Linton, which occurred early Sunday morning at the residence on Ninth Street.  While she had not been in good health for some years, her condition Saturday appeared no worse than usual and death came as a great shock to members of her immediate family as well as friends.

Funeral services were held from the residence Monday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by the Rev. J. Pendleton Scruggs, pastor of the First Baptist Church, assisted by Rev. Summers Brinson, pastor of the Methodist Temple.  Interment was in Maple Grove Cemetery.

Active pallbearers were J. A. Hill, C. T. Canon, J. D. Lashbrook, A. U. Pate, W. M. Moss and C. S. Lyne.  Honorary:  O. M. Smith, Milton Scarborough, James C. Lyne, Henry Hopson, Wilbur Bilyeu, I. G. Mason, E. J. Felts, John Whitaker, Thomas S. Rhea, J. Will Stewart, A. G. Rhea, Jesse L. Riles, Homer B. Dorris, M. M. Barclay, G. B. Williams, Vernon Hopson, Haden Kees and J. H. Edwards.

The deceased was born in Daviess County January 17, 1882, and was a daughter of the late S. B. Howard and Mattie Bell Howard, prominent people of that county.  More than 25 years ago she was united in marriage to J. Warder Linton, well-known local attorney, and they had made their home in this city since.  Two children survive this union, Miss Martha Linton and Miss Eugenia Linton.

Mrs. Linton was a member of the First Baptist Church, this city, and was a consecrated Christian woman, beloved by all who knew her.
