Mrs. M'Cullagh Dead.

A Pioneer Died Yesterday After Few Hours Illness.

Was Here About 50 Years

Mrs. McCullagh Moved to Independence in 1870 - Was a Leader in Many Activities.

Independence lost one of its most valuable women Sunday in the death of Mrs. S.L. McCullagh, of 316 West Main street where she has lived for forty years or more.

Mrs. McCullagh was ready for Sunday school Sunday morning when she complained of feeling ill. She grew steadily worse and at last sent for a doctor who came and administered first aid. But the malady had fastened upon her too firm a grip and she breathed her last at about 11 o'clock.

Miss Sarah Louise Swallow was born in Bath, Canada, November 10, 1848. She was married to John McCullagh in 1869. Mr. McCullagh came to Independence in the same year and his family followed shortly after. Mrs. McCullagh came to Independence before the civil war. Her father was a physician who came here from England.

Three children survive the parents; John and George L., both of Galena, Kansas; and Miss Lucy L. McCullagh, who resided here with her mother.

Mrs. McCullagh was one of the most prominent women of our city, being interested in every civic move as well as religious work. She was a charter member of the First Presbyterian church and also a member of the Eastern Star and the Ladies Library Association. She was the teacher of the Mother's class in the First Presbyterian church as well as a member of the Missionary Society and other organizations.

The entire city will mourn her loss for she was a true mother, a devoted citizen and an ardent worker in all worthy causes.

Notice of the funeral will be given tomorrow.

She was buried in March 1920 at Mount Hope Cemetery, Independence, Montgomery Co., KS, Findagrave #109928108.
