Obituary from the Burlingame Enterprise, Thursday September 7, 1916, p. 1:
       MRS. WHEELER
       Nancy Matilda True was born near Springfield, Ill., Feb. 14, 1837 and died at the home of her son, Charles on Aug. 29, 1916 at 3 p.m., being at the time of her death 79 years, 6 months and 15 days old.
       In 1855 Miss True was united in marriage to James SLATTEN. The following year the young couple, with their infant son, moved to Missouri. The baby died before the journey's end.
       In 1867 the husband died, leaving the young wife and six children. In 1873 Mrs. Slatten married J. H. Wheeler to which union one girl was born, who stayed with them only three short years.
       In the spring of 1879 the family moved to Kansas. In 1899 this resolute pioneer woman was again left a widow at the home of her son, Charles, where she has ever since resided with the exception of two years. The deceased is survived by five children who mourn a loving mother, Elmer having died in 1895; Wm. H. of Chicago; George of Independence, Mo.; Rosa Wheeler of Broadwater, Neb.; John T. of Topeka, and Charles of Burlingame.
