    Keziah Elliott Died Last Night
    Passed Away at Her Home on West Second Street
    Suffered Stroke of Apoplexy and Paralysis
    Yesterday morning about eleven o'clock Miss Keziah Ellott came to the door of her home on West Second street, between Central and Park streets and called to her neighbor, Mrs. Hockett, to come to her as she felt very sick. Mrs. Hockett ran to the home and found her neighbor in a serious condition. The right side was paralyzed and she seemed to be suffering a great deal.
    Word was sent for Mrs. B. F. Elliott and later for Miss Styner, one of the nurses at the Kings Daughters hospital, a niece of Miss Elliott. Dr. Ross was summoned and during the hour which followed she became unable to speak and gradually seemed to grow worse. About seven o'clock last evening another stroke came and in a little more than an hour she passed away.
    The announcement of her death will be read with surprise and regret by many friends who have grown to love and value her during the many years she had been a resident of this city. Devoted to the mother and father thruout their life she lived on with her brother Ed after they passed away until his sudden death. Since that time she has lived alone. During the spring months of this year she seemed to realize that her own health was rapidly being undermined and to the members of the family and to the nearest friends she often talked of death; and of her preparation for the end. With all who had made up their home after the marriage of the other brothers and sisters gone before her, she felt her lifework complete and was ready to lay down the burdens and duties for the life of Eternal Promise.
    Keziah Elliott was born in Wayne county, Indiana, February 11, 1848. She was a lass of eight summers when her parents came to Iowa, settling first in Wayne county, but later moving to Mahaska county where they lived for about twenty years. They came to Dallas county in 1868 and settled on a farm south of where Perry stands today, but which at that time had not been founded. Later they moved to near Redfield, but after a short time returned to this part of the county.
    Devoted to the home of her parents, and with their care devolving upon her, Miss Elliott gave unselfish and loyal service to them, and thinking not at all of her own happiness. Two sisters and two brothers have gone before her, Ed and Frank Elliott, Mrs. Gula Taylor and Mrs. Esther Stayner. There are two brothers and three sisters living, John Elliott of Redfield, Will Elliott of Des Moines, Mrs. Wm. McLuen of this city, Mrs. Jennie Rhoades of Jefferson and Mrs. George Wilcox of Dallas Center.
    The funeral will probably be held Friday afternoon at two o'clock, and the services are expected to be held from the M. E. church, the Rev. J. M. Williams having charge.
