James Henry Harrell
----------
          James Henry Harrell, a native of this county, died in this city at 10:30 o’clock last night at the home of his brother-in-law, Sheriff  John H. Butler.  Death resulted from blood poisoning, which developed from a cancer on his leg from which he had been suffering for more than a year.  Mr. Harrell was for may years a resident of Shelby township, and still owned a small farm there at the time of his death.  About three years ago he sold a part of his land holding in this county and moved to Oklahoma, whre he was developing a fine farm of one hundred and sixty acres.  The cancer trouble, which finally resulted in his death, arose about a year ago and early this summer he came here and spent several months with relatives over the county while taking treatment for the cancer.  Late in the fall he returned to his home in Oklahoma, but returned here only a few weeks ago to continue the cancer treatment.  He was here for only a few days, however, being called back to Oklahoma by the serious illness fo his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Edward Harrell, whose death is expected at any time.  While in Oklahoma his own condition became critical and he sent for Sheriff  Butler to come and bring him back here to die in the county of his birth.  He reached this city just twenty-four hours before his death.
          The funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at two o’clock at the Lewis Creek church, Rev. S. D. Hawkins officiating.  Interment in the Lewis Creek cemetry in charge o Stewart & Fix.  The funeral cortage will leave the Butler home at one o’clock Wednesday afternoon.  The casket will be open at the home from 4:30 until 9:00 o’clock this evening and from nine until one o’clock tomorrow.

DEATHS - FUNERALS
----------
          The death of  Mrs. Elizabeth Harrell,  widow of the late  Granville Harrell, occurred at Fairland Sunday evening at six o'clock, deceased lacking about one month of being eighty years of age.
          Mrs. Harrell was one of the best known residents of Brandywine township. When her husband died last November, Mrs. Harrell was in very poor health and she had continued growing weaker until her death.  For the past several weeks she has suffered greatly from cancer.
          At the age of two years her parents moved to Shelby county from Virginia, the home of her birth.  Seventy-eight years of an active, religious life in Shelby county have not been without their effect.  Brandywine township, for years the home of the Harrell's, recognizes in her death the removal of one of the community's pioneers and a peerless woman and mother.  Her home life was ideal, her community experiences the models of excellence.  For many decades Mrs. Harrell was closely associated with the religious movements in her home community and in her death Christ loses a zealous laborer on earth but gains a pure soul in his home on high.
          The surviving children are  Mrs. Elizabeth Lacock,  Mrs. Isabelle Johnston  and  J. B. Harrell,  of Indianapolis, and  Mrs. Clara Sedgwick,  of Shelbyville, and  Mrs. W. G. Storm,  of Centralia, Kansas.  Many other relatives and friends survive.
          Funeral services will be conducted at the Fairland M.E. church Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock.  Interment will be made in Fairland cemetery.

THE LATE MRS. HARRELL
(From the Boonsboro (MD.) Times)
------
          Mrs. Maggie Harrell, wife of  Harry Harrell, (of Shelby County, Indiana) departed this life, Thursday July 15th, at 7:30 a.m., at the home of her sister, in this place, at the age of 29 years and 13 days.  Mrs. Harrell suffered with that insidious disease, consumption, for more than a year.  She was a lady who had many warm personal friends in our community, who learned with regret six months ago that her health was rapidly falling and who mourned with them that mourned when her death was announced.  She bore her sufferings through her long illness with Christian fortitude, never murmuring, and during the last few weeks of her illness she anxiously looked for the time when her suffering would cease and she would be permitted to pass from the scene of this life into the life beyond.  She was a consistent member of the Reformed church, at which church her funeral took place on Sunday morning, Rev. Miller, her pastor officiating, assisted by Rev. Hott, of the U. B. church.  At the close of the discourse the pastor made some very appropriate and touching remarks about the many good graces of the deceased.  She leaves a husband who spared nothing to alleviate her condition, he putting forth every human power in her behalf.  In her death a devoted and kind husband loses an affectionate wife, and in this sad hour of affliction he has the sympathy of the people of this community.  Deceased leaves a child nearly one year old and two brothers and a sister who share the sympathy of the community in this hour of trouble.  The death of the deceased is peculiarly sad that she had been married only about two years.  Her funeral was largely attended on Saturday and the remains laid to rest in our beautiful, silent city of the dead.

          Hattie Harrell, wife of  John B. Harrell, departed this life November 27th, 1884.  Her disease was typhoid fever, complicated with erysipelas, with which she suffered two weeks, when the Father that does no wrong called her to her heavenly home, "not made with hands, but eternal in the heavens."  Hattie bore her sufferings, which were great, with resignation, never murmuring, and seemed only to be concerned about her husband and children's welfare.  Hattie joined the M. E. Church at Fairland three years ago and was received into full membership, and led a worthy and consistent Christian life until her death.  She leaves a husband and three little children to mourn her loss, besides father, mother, sisters, brothers and many friends.  But we do not mourn as those that have hope.
