MRS. CHAS. J. ELD SUCCUMBED LAST FRIDAY MORNING

Mrs. Amanda Ann Eld, widow of the late Charles J. Eld, died at the family home, near Bentonville early Friday morning, April 27, 1934. She was 81 years of age and had been quite ill about four weeks.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. R.S. Hayden, pastor of the M.E Church, South, at the family home Sunday afternoon. Burial was made in the cemetery at Oakley Chapel.

Mrs. Eld, the oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Ackerman, was born in Inland, Iowa, July 8, 1853.

On Jan. 5, 1871, she was married to Charles J. Eld of Inland, where they grew up together and attended the same village school. To them were born six children, all of whom are living.

In 1887, Mr. and Mrs. Eld left Iowa to make their home in the south. Coming to this county, they purchased a farm about a mile east of Bentonville, where the rest of their lives were spent.
