Susannah (Yeomans) Case
From: The Havensville Review, Havensville,
Susannah Yeoman was born in Jefferson Co., Pennsylvania, and June 25,
1852. She was united in marriage to Geo. W. Case July 30, 1868, in Mt. Carroll,
Carroll Co., Illinois. To this union four children were born Julia Ann White of
Westmoreland, Kansas, Nellie Rawlings living three miles northwest of
Havensville, Chas. W. Case who is still at home and Mary B. who died in infancy.
Date: July 25, 1907
The family moved from Illinois to Floyd Co., Iowa then back to Illinois from
which state they came to Kansas and located on a farm north of Savannah in 1876
and then came to Havensville, Kansas, in 1893. Sister Case was happily converted
and united with the M. E. Church at Willow, Illinois, more than forty-four years
ago and has since that time been an active, zealous and consistent Christian,
laboring for and endearing herself to all in the different churches in which she
has held her membership.
In the church here her labors have been abundant. She was a member of the Ladies
Aid Society and of the Woman’s Home Missionary Society being president of the
latter at the time of her death. Her place in these as well as in the regular
prayer meeting was never vacant unless she was kept away by sickness. Her great
desire and earnest prayer during the last years were that all her family might
be truly converted and actively engaged in the service of her Savior. She died
in the triumphs of a living faith at Bethany Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas on
July 17, 1907.
Besides the husband and children mentioned above there are two full brothers and
two half-sisters living. All these live in other states except one half-sister,
Mrs. Mary E. Ozman of our town. Her youngest brother Chas. Yeoman whose home is
in Iowa is the only one who was unable to come for the funeral.
Mrs. Case had been sick for sometime, and finding no relief from home treatment,
she was taken to the hospital at Holton and later to Bethany hospital at Kansas
City, Kansas. The funeral was held in the M.E. church, Friday afternoon,
attended by a large number of friends and neighbors, conducted by the pastor,
Rev. J. H. Kuhm, and burial in the Havensville cemetery.
