  • Notes 
    • Her obit from the Adrian Daily Telegram states:

      Mrs. Samuel Tompkins. Ruth Clemence Tompkins, fifth child of Alfred and Laura Case, was born in Ogden township Feb. 12, 1898, and died June 14, 1922, aged 24 years. She was married to Samuel Tompkins Oct. 11, 1914. To this union was born one son, who died in infancy.

      Most of her life was spent in the vicinity of Ogden. She received her schooling at the Victorsville school, having satisfactorily passed the eighth grade.

      She was converted about 12 years of ago and at the time of her death she was a Sunday school teacher at the Mission church in Fairfield.

      She has been a very patient sufferer for the last three weeks and all that loving hands could do was done for her. She leaves a husband, little Derrell, whom she had taken to give him a home, a father, a stepmother, four sisters, Mrs. Harry Miller of Fairfield, Mrs. Ernest Knierim of Ogden, and Alice and Cora at home, and five brothrs, Fred Case of Fairfield, Leo Case of Ogden, Harold Case, Luke Case and Don Case at home; one stepsister, Mrs. Otto Langenderfer of Raab, OH and her aged grandparents.

      "Tis hard to bread the tender cord
      When love has bound the heart.
      Tis hard, so hard, to speak the words,
      We must forever part.

      Dearest loved one, we must lay thee
      In the peaceful grave's embrace.
      But thy memory will be cherished
      Till we see thy heavenly face.

      The funeral was held at the home with the burial in the Zion cemetery, the Rev. N. E. Dennis officiating.
