The deceased who had been in ill health for more than two years, is survived by her husband and by a number of nephews and nieces. The couple had no children. She was a sister-in-law of Mrs. Isabella Kinnibrugh Engles, who was buried Thursday. Mrs. Kinnibrugh was the aunt of Dr. A.S.

About 1890, the St. Louis and San Francisco (Frisco) Railroad was built through the valley to Prairie Grove and points west. This attracted Starks Brothers Nursery, one of the largest fruit tree growers in the nation. The Starks company bought a large portion of the old Kinnibrugh land from John Kinnibrugh, the surviving son of the original settlers, in 1902, and Farmington became a company town. The Starks company remained until after World War II.
