Another Pioneer Gone

Lewis Wyatt died at this home in Mission township, five miles east of Lenexa on March 15th, at 4:34 p. m. His illness and death was caused by a fall from a wagon five days previous.

Mr. Wyatt was born July 23d, 1814, in Ash county, N. C., where he grew to manhood and married Esther Williams, both joining the Baptist church soon afterwards. In the fall of 1853 he removed to Jackson county, Mo., and from there to Johnson county, Kansas in 1857, and both Mr. and Mrs. Wyatt join the M. E. church, South, in 1859. Mrs. Wyatt died in 1862, which left Mr. Wyatt with a family of nine children to care and provide for. He was married to Mrs. Harriet Buttram in 1863.

Father Wyatt was a good citizen, very temperate in all his habits, and indulgent husband, a kind father, a good neighbor and a true Christian. His family have often heard him speak of being ready and willing obey the Master's call.

All of his children were with him during his illness. The funeral services were conducted by Rev., R. S. Finley at his home on March 17th, at 2 o'clock p. m., after which the remains were interred in the Linwood cemetery. He leaves an aged wife, two brothers, four sons and a daughter, besides numerous other relatives and friends to mourn his loss.
