Oldest Resident Dies
When her grandmother died, she returned to Bourbon county and made her home with an uncle, John Smith. It was at his home that she was married to John Duvall, a prominent Clark county farmer, who brought her again to this county to live. He died 50 years ago.
Mrs. Duvall was a faithful church-goer until about three years ago when she became unable to walk across the street to church. However, a communication apparatus installed by a friend enabled her to sit in "her" chair by a window and listen to the services. Her family and friends gave her a party on her last birthday.
Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Nancy Whittington of Winchester; a son, John D. Duvall Jr. of Clark county; a grandson, H. H. Duvall of Louisville, and one great-granddaughter, Miss Mae Belle Duvall of Winchester. Mrs. Whittington lived with her mother.
Funeral services will be conducted at 2:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon at the grave in Winchester cemetery by Dr. Hugh McLellan, pastor of the First Christian church. Pallbearers will be J. M. Walker, J. C. Codell, Charles Hagan, T. C. Smith, Cillum Scobee and Dave Prewitt.
