Funeral At Smithland Sunday
------------
          Mrs. Mary McFerran, 84 years old, almost a life-long resident of Shelby county, died Friday in a hospital at Dayton, Ohio, her illness caused by a carbuncle from which she had been suffering for some time.  For two years she had been making her home with her daughter, Mrs. Lillie Bushfield, at Somerville, Ohio, and she had been removed to the hospital in hope that her life might be saved.  Mrs. McFerran was the widow of  Marion McFerran, who was one of the most widely known of the earlier residents of the Smithland community, and one of the highly successful farmers of the county.  He died May 10, 1904.
          Mrs. McFerran was a member of the Baptist church at Smithland.  She was a friend of all moral causes and a fine type of the better class of farmers' wives, who did good service in rescuing the county from its rough state, and all who knew her held her in highest esteem.
          The surviving children are  J. D. McFerran, of Indianapolis;  Mrs. John Pile, near Marietta, and  Mrs. Bushfield.  The marriage of  Mr. and Mrs. McFerran was solemnized September 15, 1855, and five children were born to the union.  Mrs. McFerran was the daughter of  Willis and  Elizabeth Gully, and was born in Kentucky December 14, 1832.  Two brothers and two sisters survive her.  They are  Thomas Gully, of Indianapolis;  Mrs. Amanda Masters, of Lebanon;  Mrs. Lucinda Cobey, of Indianapolis, and  John Gulley, of this city.
          Mrs. McFerran's body reached here this afternoon from Dayton and was taken to the office of Stewart & Fix, undertakers.  The funeral services will be held at the Smithland Baptist church Sunday morning at 10 o'clock, the Rev. N.C. Smith officiating, and burial will be made in the Miller cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.
