MRS. SAVINA GRAVES DIES AT HOME HERE ON SUNDAY

Had Been Resident of County Fifty-Four Years -- 81

Mrs. Savina S. Graves, past 81 years of age, and a resident of this community for nearly 54 years, died at her home in Burlington Junction at 11:15 o'clock Sunday night, her death being a result of general infirmities.

Savina S., daughter of Phillip and Floretta Sheets Earhart, was born December 11, 1853, in Stark county, Illinois. There she grew to womanhood and was married at Toulon, Ill., on March 30, 1871, to Jonathan Graves. To this union five children were born, three of whom died in infancy. Minnie died at the age of 13 years, and Oliver at 34 years of age.

The Graves family moved to Kansas in the fall of 1875, and came to Burlington Junction in January, 1881, settling on a farm southeast of town. They moved to town the spring of 1926, where she has since resided. Mr. Graves preceeded her in death January 12, 1932.
