_________ Daniel BUSBY, for thirty-five years a farmer in the New Albany vicinity, succumbed to a heart attack about 7:15 yesterday evening. He was 76 years and 2 days old at the time of death.

Mr. BUSBY had suffered of endocarditis for the past two years but seemed in his usual good spirits yesterday. He walked to New Albany about 5:00 that evening and it was about fifteen minutes following his return home that he suffered the heart attack, which resulted in his death.

Howard BUSBY of Lamont and Byron HOUSER of the home; three half-sisters and two brothers.

Daniel BUSBY was born in Shelby county, Illinois, January 7, 1861, and after being in failing health for several months quietly passed away at his home in New Albany, Kas., Tuesday evening, February 9, 1937, at the age of 76 years, 1 month and 2 days. He grew to manhood in Illinois and fifty-five years ago this month came to Wilson county located near New Albany. He spent a number of years in other states but never severed connections with Wilson county or its people.

On October 12, 1899 he was united in marriage to Minnie RADCLIFF HOUSER. To this union were born two children. "Uncle Dan" as he was affectionately known by many was converted and his heart purified by faith at the advance age of 62 years. From this time on he was truly a different man. Old things passed away and lo all things became new. It is a rare privilege to witness a changed life as was his. Those who knew him best appreciated this transformation most.

To him religion was not something to be endured but rather a relationship with divinity that brought joy and peace. Shortly after conversion, he united with the Pilgrim Holiness church and with these people he worshipped through the years. His religious experience can well be summed in the beautiful words of the hymn by Newton:
"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me, I once was lost but now I'm found, Was blind but now I see."

He is survived in death by his wife, Mrs. Minnie BUSBY of the home, seven children and on step-son, including Howard K. BUSBY of Lamont, Zoe M. BRILES of Gravette, Ark., Mrs. Zennia PAWLEY, Mrs. Violet MAXON, Mrs. Rose ROOT, Forrest BUSBY all of California and Byron R. HOUSER of New Albany; two brothers, J.E. BUSBY of Campo, Colo., A.C. BUSBY of Windsor, Calif.; three sisters, Mrs. Alice SALYER, LaPlata, Mo., Mrs. Nettie DONNEL, Westervelt, Ill., and Mrs. Tory KIDWELL, Shelbyville, Ill.; several grandchildren and many other relatives.

Besides these a great number will miss his familiar figure and cheery words. He had a high sense of honor, was highly esteemed by his friends and therefore leaves a priceless heritage for is loved ones and an excellent reputation among his fellow men. A good man has gone but only as the human race must go.

"He did not aspire to be great, Or to live a life for fame, For better than silver and gold, Is he who has a new name."

"A life of service has ended, The burdens of life are laid down, A Spirit to Him has ascended, Who give to the faithful a crown."

The funeral services were held in the Methodist church at New Albany Friday afternoon, February 12, 1937 conducted by the Rev. Carl Hahn and the Rev. John Philpot, and burial was in the Weakly Cemetery.

"note" The obit cites seven children for Daniel and only lists six. I do see that one daughter is missing from this obit. Her name was Pansy BUSBY WELLS BORBA and she resided in California at the time of his death.

Mrs. Elizabeth E. Johnson was born in Putnam County, Indiana, November 19, 1847, and was united in marriage to Reuben F. Busby November 16, 1871.

To this union were born ten children, three sons and seven daughters, of which two sons and two daughters died in infancy.

She was converted twenty-two years ago and united with the Christian Church, of which she was a member at the time of her death. The dread disease, consumption, took hold about a year ago, but she bore her affliction with great patience. She departed this life August 1, 1902.

Minnie E., daughter of Samuel and Sarah RADCLIFF, was born four miles west of Fredonia, in Wilson County, Kansas, March 14, 1872. After being in failing health for several months, she quietly passed away at the home of her son, Rev. Howard K. BUSBY at Lamont, March 22, 1944, at the age of 72 years and eight days. Sixty-nine of her seventy-two years were spent in Wilson county. Her mind was rich in memories of pioneer days and the people that braved the hardships of that day to settle the country. In 1891 she was united in marriage to Dr. Frank HOUSER. To this union, one son was born. On Oct. 11, 1899 she married Daniel BUSBY. Their children numbered two.

As a young woman, her contact with Methodism resulted in a definite conversion to the Christian faith. She later failed in her walk with Christ but more than twenty years ago renewed her covenant and lived with her face toward the city of God. Her prayers will ever be a benediction to those who knew her best. Her courage, in the face of death was a thing of beauty and her vision reached over the dark river to a land that's fairer than day. She is survived in death by four children, They are: Byron R. HOUSER of Chanute, Kansas, Howard K. BUSBY of Lamont, Kansas, Zoe BRILES of New Albany, Kansas and Orval JONES, a foster son of Manter, Kansas. There are eight grand children, two great-grandchildren, and many other relatives. She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Addie HALL of New Albany, Kans.

Her sterling character and unselfish devotion will ever enshrine her memory in the hearts of her loved ones.

The Lord couldn't be here--so He looked for another.
And when He had found her--He christened her Mother.
Mother's gone--Alas! such words
No peace, no comfort, earth affords
Her best to us was always given
God grant--we may all meet in Heaven
A mother's love--much like the Lord's
Is the warmest thing--this earth affords;
Her going leaves us cold and chilled
With a vacant place that can't be filled.
