This came to me as a result of a Rootsweb PML search, and I though it might help someone:

Aged Citizen Passes Away

Mrs. Elizabeth Stokely died at the home of her son,
I.N. Daffron, in this city at 3:30 o'clock Monday
afternoon, after an illness of several weeks duration.
Hope of her recovery had been abandoned, owing to her
advanced age, and her death, while not a surprise, was
the source of deepest regret to her many friends in
Wayne County.

Mrs. Stokely was born in Tennessee something more than
85 years ago. She was first married to Smith Daffron,
who died in May 1868. Of this union two sons survive;
Thomas Daffron of Piedmont, and I.N. Daffron of this
city. She was married to William Stokely in 1872, who
died some 20 years ago, since which time, she made her
home with I.N. Daffron's family.

She was a member of the Piedmont Baptist Church and
lived a consecrated Christian life. The body was taken
to Piedmont Tuesday and was buried in the Piedmont
Cemetery. Funeral services were conducted at the
Piedmont Baptist Church by Rev. A.E. McCall. Those
from this place who accompanied the body to Piedmont
are; Mr. and Mrs. I.N. Daffron and daughters, Misses
Clara and Ann; Mrs. I.L. rhodes; S.J. Malugen and
C.R. Reed.
(This obituary was copied from the Film of the
Greenville Sun, Greenville, Mo. Week of Thurs. Dec.
24, 1914).
