It was just 28 years ago, that during the family's residence in Kentucky her husband and their oldest son, Wash burned to death in an effort to remove several head of livestock and mules from a buring barn. Family members tell of how Mr. Carter and the oldest son had driven the stock to safety. Then, the animals became panic-stricken, and returned to the blazing structure. Following them into remove them again, the doo latched behind, and falling timbers of the barn super structure held them captive for tragic death. It was shortly after she came to Illinois and settled in a home of her own at Burnside, that Mrs. carter's health began to fail, and she moved to the home of her son. Families of her eight surviving children were in the Disco Curch on Monday to pay final respects at services, at which Rev. Richard C. Muhleman officiated; and several accompanied the remains to Kentucky for interment.
