From the History of Johnson Country Indiana 1888: "He [Henry Harrison Luyster] was married, in 1855, to Miss Mary I. Carnahan, who was born in Tippecanoe County, Ind., and is the daughter of Rev. James A. Carnahan, a pioneer minister. To this union six children have been born, three of whom are living. She is a member of the Presbyterian Church." Mary was very active in the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Luyster, Mary (Carnahan) Date of Death: 13 May 1896 Source: Unknown Newspaper, Obituary Files, Johnson Museum of History, Genealogy Room Fallen Asleep The long and painful illness of Mrs. Mary Luyster, wife of Mar- shal H.H.Luyster terminated in her death this morning at her home on west King street at 10:30 o'clock. Mrs. Luyster had been a great sufferer during her sickness which was the result of cancer but in all her pain had been patient and forbearing. She was a noble Christian woman, and many of those she has been instrumental in leading to a better life will mourn today the departure of a dear friend. In church work she was a prime mover, her joy and greatest delight probably being in the interest and promotion of the welfare of the Mission Chapel. Her glad smile was always to be looked for there by the children and her encouraging words and hopeful spirit drew them close about her. Affection- ately considerate of those around her life has been a benefaction to many, and there is general sorrow in this hour of bereavement for those who mourn the death of a wife, mother and friend. Mrs. Luyster was a sister of Gen. J. R. Carnahan and was the daughter of Rev. James A. Carna- han. She was born in Tippecanoe county, Ind., and was married to H. H. Luyster in 1855, To this union six children were born, three of whom are living: J. B. Luyster of this city, Mrs. Ella Eastburn of Rocklane, and Frank Luyster, now in California. No definite funeral announce- ment has been made, but the ser- vices will probably be held at the residence on Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. L. P. Marshall offi- ciating, burial at Hopewell cemetery. Submitted by Lois Johnson
