      Friday, September 30, 1938

      Mrs. Mary Elizabeth BURKETT, aged 69, widow of Michael BURKETT committed suicide sometime Thursday afternoon by drowning herself in a horse tank at the home of her brother-in-law and sister Mr. and Mrs. William BURKETT who reside on a farm a mile southeast of Richland Center. Despondency over continued ill health is given as the cause of the tragedy.

      The body of Mrs. Burkett was found by her sister when she returned to her home shortly after 4 o?clock Thursday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Burkett left their home in the morning, Mr. Burkett on a business mission and Mrs. Burkett to attend a church society meeting.

      When the Burketts drove into the barnlot at their home Mrs. Burkett spied what she thought was a chicken floating on the top of the horsetank. Going to the tank she made the grewsome [sic] discovery of her sister?s death. Dr. Dean STINSON, coroner, was called and said that death had occurred from five to six hours before the body was found.

      The deceased was a life long resident of Fulton county. She was born Oct. 26, 1868 and was the daughter of Harrison and Margaret DUDGEON. Her husband Michael BURKETT died in 1934 since which time the deceased had lived with her sister Martha [BURKETT], the wife of her dead husband?s brother. Mr. and Mrs. Michael Burkett resided on a farm one mile north of Rochester in Road 31 for many years. Mrs. Burkett was a member of the Methodist Church at Richland Center.

      Survivors are two sisters, Mrs. Martha BURKETT and Mrs. Margaret FOSTER and number of nieces and nephews.
