|2|| Addie Pearl Walker Peters was born at Mankato, Kansas on the 18th day of December, 1879, and die at her home in Narka, Kansas, on the 13th day of February, 1922, at the age of 4 years, 1 month and 26 days.|
On the second day of December, 1896, she was united in marriage to James Austin Peters, at Mankato, Kansas. To this union were born 10 children, two preceding their mother in death.
In 1904 the family moved from Mankato to Narka, Kansas, where they resided until death called her to her reward.
The deceased leaves to mourn her untimely death, her beloved husband James Austin Peters, who will miss her companionship in his lonely walk through life: three daughters, Mrs. Nina Mable Love, of Mahaska; Mrs. Pansy Waltman, of Haddam; and Miss Mary Marguerite Peters, of Narka, Kas.; five sons George W., at Honolulu, Hawaii; Austin Walker, Leslie Ryal, Donald Marlen, and Neal Marvin, all of Narka, Kas. All of whom will miss the tender love and care of a loving mother so much needed. Her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. George R. Walker of Mankato, Kas.; two brothers Herbert and Lester Walker, of Mankato, Kas.; two sisters, Mrs. S. Strom, of Otego, Kas, and Mrs. M. L. Van Meter, of Mankato, Kas., together with numerous other relatives and friends.
The deceased was ready to go, although she realized her need with the family, and would have liked to remain with them in order that she might help where she was so much needed, but submissive to her Creator. A short time after her last operation the writer while calling, heard her say that everything was well, she said, "if it is God's will I am ready to go." In her early youth she gave herself to her Savior, and although busy days with little loved ones to care for did not permit her to attend church services as she would liked to have done, still in the days of need she trusted in Him from whom cometh all help.
As a wife, Mrs. Peters was true and faithful, a kind and loving companion, making the home a cheerful place to be. As a mother she was long suffering, sacrificing, and loving, caring for those entrusted to her when physically unable, but whether life or death she was willing to serve them with all her strength until God said "enough". As a neighbor she was kind, gentle, and a friend to everybody, and her presence will be missed everywhere she was known.
The services were held in the M. E. church at Narka, Kas., the Rev. R. J. Zeidler preaching the sermon. The body was laid to its last resting place in the Maple Grove cemetery at Narka.

|3|| Elnathan Hurd was the son of Ebenezer (10) and Sara Pickett Lane Hurd, was born in Killingworth, Conn., Oct. 12, 1699. He was a sturdy lad, was a devout Christian, always regular and attentive to his duties, hberal and just. He received early training in self-preservation, for he was born at a time when each man's home was a fortification against the depredations of the Indians.|
He grew to monstrous height and of wonderful bodily vigor, being six feet four inches without shoes, and was of prodigious strength. At the age of 18 years he was ensign in ''Number 6 Trained Band of Connecticut," and was made captain of his band at the same age. He fought in the French and Indian Wars and was wounded at Charlestown. The family tradition has been handed down that in passing through the spot where beautiful Newport now stands. Captain Elnathan Hurd realized the beauty of the place and later became one of its first settlers.
He married Thankful Nettleton Dec. 4, 1724, a member of the distinguished Nettleton family from which have descended so many men and women noted for their learning, honest integrity and philanthropy.
From a diary kept by the noted son of this woman, we learn that upon one occasion when left alone for the day, Elnathan Hurd's home was attacked by Indians. Hearing the ''war-whoops" of the approaching red men, Mrs. Hurd tactfully suggested that the mothers and daughters don the men's hats and coats, and hastily seizing every available gun began a spirited fire upon the approaching Indians. The deception was complete; the Indians supposed the homes to be defended by a strong garrison and fled. From these leaders among the early settlers of Killingworth, that noted revolutionary officer, Captain Sam Hurd, was endowed with many gifts that helped to make him one of New England's strongest and most daring early soldiers. At the age of 75 years Elnathan Hurd was eager to enter the active service for the defense of his countrymen, but he was not allowed to go, being ''over sixty." He was made chairman of the ''Committee of Safety" in Feb., 1775, at the little village of Newport. He was, however, in "active service" in his home duties and was in constant danger from the home Tories, was captured once and confined in the historical Sugar House prison in New York for six months. He effected his escape, returned home and at the age of 81 years, still vigorous and strong, fell from his horse and was killed.

|39||(Research):32.5.13 Catherine ["Caty"] Sparks, daughter of Daniel and Sarah (Bogard) Sparks, was born on February 13, 1812. She was married to Hezekiah Applegate in 1828 in Scott County, Indiana (marriage bond dated August 25, 1828).|
The following Applegate information was provided to us in 1988 by an authority on the family's history named L. M. Applegate of Livermore, California. According to L. M. Applegate, family records indicate that Catherine was actually a middle name, her full name being Sarah Catherine Sparks, but she was called Catherine, or Caty. Hezekiah Applegate had been born on Febru ary 14, 1810, in Tennessee (probably in Rhea County) and died on February 21, 1878, in Pike County, Illinois. Hezekiah was a son of Samuel Applegate (1783-1870), a Baptist preacher; his mother's name was Sarah. Hezekiah and Catherine ["Caty"] (Sparks) Applegate had the following children, according to the records of L. M. Applegate.
22.214.171.124 Samuel K. Applegate was born in 1830. He was married on December 6, 1852, in Pike County, Illinois, to Mary Ann Myers, and they had a son named William Applegate. Samuel K. Applegate died on April 8, 1857, and his widow, Mary Ann, was married (2nd) to George Robert Westrope; she died in 1917 near Oroville, California.
126.96.36.199. Sarah Almyra Applegate was born about 1832 (perhaps earlier). She was married in Pike County, Illinois, on November 1, 1849, to Adam Moormaul (or Moormaw). When her father's estate was settled in 1878, she was called "Myra A. Moormaw." We have found no record of her children.
188.8.131.52. William Frank Applegate, born September 6, 1836, died in Magnolia, Pike County, Mississippi, on October 26, 1912. He was married twice, (1st) to Fannie McQuirk (1844-1927) on July 21, 1867, in St. Patrick's Church in New Orleans, Louisiana. She had been born in Ireland on December 25, 1844, and died on December 26, 1927, in New Orleans. William Frank and Fannie (McQuirk) Applegate had children named: Mary Applegate, born 1868; Frances Grace Applegate, born 1872; Thomas James Applegate, born 1874; Julia Applegate, born 1877; and Theresa Applegate. born 1879.
William Frank Applegate was married (2nd) on July 2, 1903, in Chatawa, Mississippi, to Theresa Julia Mason who died July 6, 1907. They had two children: Alice Applegate and Charles Applegate.
184.108.40.206 Mary Jane Applegate was born in 1842; she was married on April 11, 1858, to Morgan Chaplin. They had no children.
The marriage of Catherine ["Caty"] Sparks and Hezekiah Applegate ended in divorce, and Hezekiah Applegate was married twice more. His second marriage was to Louisa , who bore him a child in 1846; his third marriage in 1867 was to Mary ["Ellen"] Gill.
When the 1850 census was taken of Pike County, Illinois, Catherine Applegate was shown as heading a household of her own; she was shown as 39 years of age and living with her were two of her children, her 20-year-old son, Samuel Applegate, "Farmer," and her 8-year-old daughter, Mary J. Applegate.
Sometime after 1850, according to "family tradition" as reported to us by another Applegate genealogist (Jeannette Cogar Rhodes of Grants Pass, Oregon), Catherine was married a second time, to Nicholas Barney, and she accompanied him to Oregon on a wagon train. We have no further information.
