From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), July 26, 1923, page 1:

Eva Green Peters.

Eva Green Peters was born in Andrew County, Mo., near Savannah, July 19, 1867, and died at her home near Manchester, Kans., July 17, 1923.

She was married to James H. Cassell January 1, 1900 and to this union two children were born, Kate and Valmont, both of whom are at home.

She had been in poor health the last two years but bore her suffering patiently and had been about her housework that forenoon and had prepared dinner when her summons came.

She moved to Nodaway County with her parents in 1879 and here she grew to womanhood, and attended school in Skidmore.

Her mother died when she was a young girl and she assumed the responsibility of the home and the motherless children.

In 1902, she with her husband moved to Kansas where she spent the remainder of her life.

Mrs. Cassell had been a faithful member of the Christian church for over twenty years.

She leaves to mourn her loss besides her husband and children, three sisters: Mrs. D. J. Albright, of Roosevelt, Okla., Mrs. W. S. Zeller and Miss Viva Peters, both of Skidmore, and one brother Claud D. Peters of Argonia, Kans., and a host of neighbors and friends as was evidenced by the beautiful foloral offerings and the large concourse of people who followed to her last resting place.

On July 19th, her birthday, she was laid away in the cemetery at Solomon, Kans., to await the resurrection.
