SHANNON, Artamisea E. – Died At A Ripe Old Age – Artamisea E. Shannon was born April 27, 1824 in Mobile, Alabama. She was married to T.J. Shannon November 5, 1857. To them were born four children, three of whom survive her.

She embraced religion at the age of 14 years and united with the Presbyterian church. In the early forties she moved with her parents from Alabama to Arkansas, locating near Cane Hill. She brought her church letter and deposited the same with the Cane Hill C.P. Church. In later years removed her membership to Cincinnati, of which she was a member until death.

She has been failing fast since her 90th birthday. She was stricken down in June 1914, from which she never recovered, but was a sufferer until the death angel called her home. She bore her afflictions very patiently and sang many songs while on her bed of afflictions.

She survived her husband over 18 years, of which time she has lived with her daughter.

She was laid to rest in the cemetery near Summers, Ark. There were present a large company of relatives and friends.
