1. Mrs. J.F. Mansfield Buried Today  --   Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Darter Mansfield died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H.E. McGhee in Washington, D.C. Sunday night.

Mrs. Mansfield was born in the state of Virginia (my note: probably Wythe or Scott Co.) On May 10,  1854.  About four years later, the family moved to Barren Co., Kentucky where she spent the greater part of her life.  In the  year of 1933 she went to Washington, D.C. to live with her daughter. 

She was married to James Frank Mansfield on Oct. 6, 1874 whom she survived 25 years.  Their home was on the lower Bowling Green Road, three miles west of Glasgow. 

She is the last of her generation  to pass on.  Surviving are three daughters and five sons, Mrs.  McGhee (Etta Mansfield), Mrs. Vincent Przygocki (Nora Mansfield), Miss Clyde [sic] Mansfield all of Washington, D.C.  Walter of  Los Angeles, Taylor of Clovis, Calif., Edd of St. Joseph, Missouri, Mack and Clarence Mansfield of Glasgow. 

Mrs. Mansfield was a member of Browder's Chapel Baptist Church.  She was a loyal Christian and  a devoted mother.   In addition to her immediate family, she leaves many friends, neighbors, and relatives to mourn her loss.

Funeral services were held at the  home of Mack Mansfield, the old family home, this afternoon and burial was in the Darter burying grounds. 
Rev. Genie Darter of Glendale, Wiley Darter, Terry Bradford and Mrs. W.E. White of Glasgow are  nephews and nieces of the deceased.


Mrs. Mary Darter Mansfield   -- By D.F. Riherd

We saw in the papers some time ago an account of the death of Mrs. Mary Darter Mansfield in Washington City [sic] and of her being brought back to Barren county and buried in the Darter burying grounds on the Glasgow Junction Road. 

I went to school with Mary to the  old log schoolhouse on the hillside near the Glasgow Branch Railroad.  She was four years older than I and was a lively girl.  We played some of the old-fashioned plays of  long  ago.   Reader, did you ever hear of the game called  "Chick-come-e, chic-cume-e cranecrow?"  Well, if you  ever took a hand in the game, you know what it is like to be swung  around like the tail of a kite.  Mary Darter was adept at this game.  

School in those days only lasted three months.  There was no such thing as a teacher being  examined for a certificate to teach school.  My first school was  taught by a man from Pennsylvania named Hulbert.  He had been to  the "single rule of threes" (simple proportion) in  arithmetic, and could read and write and had been through Webster's blue back spelling book.   Mary Darter was a student at  that school. 

The last thing in the afternoon  was to stand all the scholars against the wall   big, little, old and young, with Mr. Hulbert in the center of the room  giving out the spelling lesson.  This was in the year 1865.  Mr. Hulbert taught two schools at Sinking Spring. 

Mr. Hulbert had four boys, Jude, Jim, Joe, and Ben.  At dinner he would spread their dinner out on a bench.  He would say over a very long blessing and eating  began.  The dinner generally consisted of bread, meat and  sorghum molasses.  They would first devour the meat and part of the corn bread.  Then they would go after the rest of the bread  and sorghum.  They would bring the sorghum in bottles.  The professor would have about a seven-ounce bottle full, Jude a 5 ounce,  Jim a 4 ounce, Joe a 3 ounce and Ben a two ounce.  They would take a bite of bread and drink the sorghum directly from the bottle.  They would all finish at once, and it was a clean,  clear finish.

We give all these details to show  what difficulties we labored under for an education which we were not getting.  After the war schools improved rapidly.  Better  and better teachers were required. $125 - $150 was the amount the paid best teachers for a five months school in 1875. Under these environments, Mary Darter grew up. 

On October 8, 1874, she married  Mr. Frank Mansfield.  We were at the wedding.  A large  number of people were there.  We knew about all of them.   Today, we cannot recall a single person now living who was  there.  They, as far as we know, have been swept away.   

Mary and her husband settled down  on their farm and went to work.  She was of a loving motherly disposition, which she inherited from her mother, Mrs. Julia (Wininger) Darter.  No one ever heard her say a harmful word about anybody.   She fought the battle of life bravely.  She came out victorious.  She "bore all  things, endured all things, she never failed."  She had a loving word for everyone.  She was the mainstay and prop of the family.   Mary was of the same splendid material.  The same spiritual religious character.  Mr. Mansfield was a deacon in a Baptist church    had all the industry, economy and frugality.  Just such characters make this nation  great.  Makes her loved at home and revered abroad.  They blessed the world they lived in and sent forth noble men and women to  battle for her glory.

She was buried in the Darter burying ground.  We helped dig the first grave there.  It  was for Steve Darter.  He was killed in Cincinnati.  A telegram was sent to his people in Barren county telling them of the accident.  The facts were set forth in a Cincinnati  newspaper.  It read,  "Stephen Darter fell from the tender of an engine when backing up on Wade Street, passing over his body.  He was horribly mangled."  In his pocket was  found a letter from his sister, Rose, imploring him to come home    that she had many bad dreams about him.

When the train bringing him home blew (the home was very near the railroad) his mother with sorrowing heart cried, "he is coming home; he is coming home."   Miss Rose, when the casket was opened said "it is him; it is  him."   His mother's exclamation showed that she was  thinking that he was coming for an eternal stay.  While Miss  Rose's exclamation showed that she had a lingering hope that there  might be a mistake and that it might not be he.  So, there they are, buried right by the little path over which we had so often trod on our way to and from the dear old log schoolhouse of Sinking Spring. 

Yes, there they will sleep until they are called forth in the resurrection morn.
