The remains of Mrs. Emaline Bunten, widow of the late Felix Bunten, were brought here from Louisville Wednesday for interment in the Ebenezer Cemetery.  Mrs. Bunten formerly lived in Mercer County, but about two years ago went to Louisville to make her home with her sons, Messrs. Price and Tom Lewis Bunten.  She was a splendid character, a woman of fine traits who was much loved by all who knew her.  A home maker in every sense of the word and a devoted mother, her memory will be held dear by a large family, as she leaves the following children:  Messrs. Bunten, of Louisville; Mrs. Verner Hawkins, Lawrenceburg; Mrs. Garnett Ransdell, Salvisa; Mrs. Nora Smithey, Ebenezer; Mrs. Mansfield Dean, Vanarsdell; Mrs. Henry McMurry, Oregon; Messrs. Sam Bunten, Illinois; Ernest Bunten, California and Homer Bunten, of Oklahoma.  All but the three last named were here to attend their mother’s funeral at Ebenezer Church.  The services were conducted by Rev. S. H. Jones.  The deceased is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. J. T. Veatch, of Mercer, and Mrs. Gregory, of Woodford County.
