Miss Mary E.[sic] Walton
"Funeral services for Miss Mary R. Walton, Columbus, formerly of Barnesville, were held Sunday at 2 p.m. in
Columbus. She died Friday after a lingering illness.
"Miss Walton was born in Barnesville, the daughter
of James W. and Martha L. Walton. After the death of her father the family moved to New York City in 1897. Since
1919 Miss Walton lived in Columbus. For about 17 years she was employed in the state headquarters of the American Legion,
leaving that service several months ago because of poor health. At an early age she became a member of the Methodist
church in Barnesville.
"Surviving are three brothers, William T. and James S. Walton, Portland, Ore., and Charles
C. Walton, Columbus, with whom she made her home. She also leaves the following cousins in Cambridge, Mrs. Fred W. Lane,
Mrs. T. E. Amos and George A. Beckett. She had many friends here and in Barnesville who are saddened by her death."
