Adair County Deaths & Obituaries

Adair County News, May 29, 1907

On Wednesday last, the 22nd, at her home in Gainesville, Texas, Mrs. Lula Wheat, wife of Mr. Mack Wheat, breathed her last, and her spirit went to the God who gave it. The immediate cause of death is not known here, but for a long time she had been in very delicate health. The deceased was formerly Miss Page. Her father, Mr. Charles Page, who lived and died in this town, several years ago, enjoyed the good will and acquaintance of as many people, probably, as any man in the County. The deceased is survived by a husband, Mr. Mack Wheat, a mother, Mrs. Ann Page and four brothers, Forest, William, George and Joe and a sister, Miss Nellie, all of whom live in Texas. She was a member of the Christian church, and a most excellent Christian lady. She was a niece of Dr. J.N. Page and Mrs. Jo Coffey, of Columbia.

[Mrs. Wheat's husband, George HB. McClennan Wheat -- who went by "Mack" -- was the son of Joseph W. & Nancy Stapp Wheat of Casey County. Joseph's parents were John R. & Martha (Phelps) Wheat, of Russell Co. Martha's parents settled c. 1798 in the part of Green Co., Ky., that later became part of Adair Co. and later still, part of Russell County, near the Esto community.]
