PEEL, Mary Emaline BERRY - Died: At her home in Bentonville, Ark. Dec. 23rd, Mary Emaline Peel {nee Berry}, age 67 years, 10 months and 9 days. The deceased was the wife of ex-Congressman S.W. Peel, and a sister of U.S. Senator James H. Berry. She was born in Alabama Feb. 14th, 1835. Moved with her parents to Carrollton, Carroll Co. when 14 years of age. When about 16 she professed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as her savior and united with the C.P. Church. In this community she lived and labored faithfully and efficiently until death. Jan. 30th, 1853 she was married to S.W. Peel. To them were born nine children, three sons and six daughters, all living except the oldest son, J.M. Peel, who died 10 years ago. There are thirty—four grandchildren living and two dead. When the end came there were present with her of the children, Mrs. J.W. Vance of Pierce City, Mo., Mrs. W.E. Anderson of Houston, Texas, Mrs. W.L. Peters of Chickasha, I.T., Mrs. L.H. McGill, Mrs. Fannie Clark, D.W. and F.W. Peel of Bentonville. Mrs. Preston Davis of Vinita, I.T. did not arrive until the hour of the funeral. The presence of these, together with the devoted husband, the beloved sons and daughters-in-law, the dear grandchildren, the scores of kindred and friends, present in sympathy if not in person, and above all the abiding presence of the blessed Christ, constituted an environment that made even death peaceful and happy. Aware of the malignant nature of her disease she was fully conscious of the fact that death would soon claim her as his victim. Thirty-five years ago she with her husband came to Bentonville and through all of these years she identified herself with the best interests of the place and people, civilly, socially and religiously. On Christmas day at 10 o'clock a great company of relatives, friends and acquaintances assembled at the family residence to attend the funeral services conducted by the writer, assisted by Revs. Waldrip, Miller and Bainbridge, after which the remains were borne to the Odd Fellows Cemetery and there laid away in the family lot to await the resurrection. May the peace of God rest upon the bereft husband and family. P. Carnahan.
