"31 Jan 1923, Chester, Arkansas (From the obituary section of a newspaper appears the following article that was found  in the family bible of George Washington McCaslin's grandson Raymond Elmore Collier. Hand written on the article was the date Jan 31, 1923.)  "TWO VICTIMS TAKEN WITHIN AN HOUR IN ONE FAMILY BY FLU" "George W. McCaslin, Chester Farmer and Daughter, Mrs. Williams Succumb Wednesday"      "George W. McCaslin, prominent farmer of Chester, and his daughter Mrs. F. M. Williams, 42 of Fort Smith, died at the McCaslin home in Chester, early Wednesday morning, following illness from influenza. Mr. McCaslin, who was 77 years of age, Wednesday, died about 1 o'clock and his daughter died an hour later. He had been ill about two weeks and Mrs. Williams, who had gone to Chester to be with her father during his illness, was taken ill about a week ago. Mr. McCaslin, who was well known in Crawford County, is survived by three daughters by his first wife and a small daughter by his second wife, who also is living. The daughters are Mrs. Gus Collier of Van Buren, Mrs. J. W. Kimes of Haroldton, Mrs. May Lingo of Sallisaw, Okla., and Nadine McCaslin of Chester. Mrs. Williams is survived by her husband, step-mother, three sisters and small half-sister. A double funeral services was held from the family home at Chester Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock with Rev. H. Steward of the Chester Methodist Church officiating. Interment was made in the Chester cemetary." Editor's note [R Nelson Collier]: The calendar for January 1923 confirms that Jan 31 fell on a Wednesday so the article was probably published in early February 1923. In followup research Mrs. F. M. Williams, the deceased daughter, is in fact Malissa McCaslin Williams. This was confirmed when a search of Arkansas marriages 1779 - 1992 produced a record in which Malissa McCaslin married one Frank Williams in 1898. Mrs. J. W. Kimes is Rachel E. McCaslin Kimes who had married John Wesley Kimes. This was also confirmed by a marriage record and census document. Mrs. Gus Collier is Martha McCaslin Collier my paternal grandmother whose funeral I attended as a child in 1950. I also hold the funeral service record of family and friends attending from which much of my McCaslin research comes.  The daughter listed as Mrs. May Lingo is actually Mary E McCaslin who married Milton J Lingo." "One of Rachel and David McCaslin's sons, George Washington McCaslin died in 1923 in Chester, Crawford County, Arkansas. I obtained a copy of his funeral bill which was paid on Feb 6, 1923 by his son-in-law, Augustus Souel Collier, husband of Martha Newton's sister Melvina McCaslin, a daughter of George, the writer's paternal grandmother."
