From Perry Republican.
Ralph Compton died at his home four miles west of Perry Saturday night, March 17, 1900. He died from heart disease, only suffering a very short time. Mr. Compton was born in England on February 20, 1836. The early part of his life was spent in England and Scotland. He removed to America with his family in 1869, and purchased a home in Marshall county, Kansas, where he resided until the spring of 1893, when he moved to Oklahoma, where he spent the remainder of his useful life. He leaves a wife, two daughters and five sons to mourn his departure, all realizing that he is not lost, but only gone before. He has two brothers still living, one in Portland, Oregon, the other in Scotland. He also has two sisters, both living in Scotland. His children were all present at the funeral, except the youngest son, who is in Minnesota. He was a devoted Christian and an untiring Sunday school worker. He was president of the North Lowe township Sunday school association, and also superintendent of the Sunday school near his home. Many there are to testify of the good received from the example of his devoted Christian life, and his wise and loving council. His funeral services were conducted at the M.E. church of Perry by Rev. L.B. Parker. There was a long procession of his friends and neighbors who followed his remains to their last resting place in Grace Hill cemetery of Perry. The church was beautifully decorated by loving hands and all was done that could be to attest the high esteem with which he was held in the church of which he was a member. The kindness and tender thoughtfulness of friends both in the city and country will always be gratefully remembered by the family of the departed one.
W.I. Compton, James Compton and their sister, Mrs. Sherman Roy, all living in the neighborhood three and one-half miles northeast of Mulhall are children of the deceased. THE ENTERPRISE extends sympathy.]
