Headstone inscription of May TInsman Primm

Mrs. May Primm, wife of Thomas D. Primm, of Industrial Addition, is dead at the home of her father, Thomas Tinsman, on Second Street. The end came Wednesday evening at 8:30 o’clock and was the result of an attack of typhoid fever which developed into pneumonia. She had been in a very low condition for a day or so before death.

Mrs. Primm was ill for three weeks. Four weeks ago her husband went to Richwood to remain until he had finished a building contract and Mrs. May Primm and children moved to her father’s until he returned. Mr. Primm came home as soon as he learned of his wife’s illness.

Many friends are made sorrowful over Mrs. Primm’s death as she was an estimable woman and held in the highest esteem by all those who knew her.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Primm is survived by seven children of her immediate family. The children are Kenneth, Charles, Jamie, Katherine, Margaret, Thomas and Edna.
