Name of Newspaper: Waverly Journal
Date of Obituary: August 1, 1913
Obituary: Mrs. Elizabeth HAISLEY, who formerly resided in Waverly, died at her home in Franklin, of old age, Friday July 25, 1913, at the age of 87 years, 4 months and 6 days.
Elizabeth H. GUNELS was born March 19, 1826 in the state of Kentucky; her parents being of the hardy pioneers of that state. She grew to young womanhood in her native state, sharing the hardships and privations of that early period. At the age of 19 years she was married to William H. SCRIBNER in Kentucky on Jan. 16, 1846. The young couple shortly thereafter moved to Waverly, Ill.
There were born to them four children: Jennie, Tennessee H., Malveny, and Wesley L.
In the latter part of June, 1855 a family passing through Waverly by wagon stopped at their home and sought assistance, a child of the family having died. They were received without hesitation into the home, and it immediately developed that the child had died of cholera. Within a few days Mr. and Mrs. SCRIBNER and all of the children except the four months old infant Wesley were stricken with the dreadful disease, and on July 4, 5, and 6, Mr. SCRIBNER and the daughters Tennessee and Malveny died. The widow barely escaped death, and was left with Wesley and the daughter Jennie, then seven years of age. Those two children she raised to manhood and womanhood and educated by her individual efforts and with great sacrifice and hardship. Then she sustained further great sorrow of the loss of her son Wesley who died at the age of 19 years.
On April 8, 1873, Mrs. SCRIBNER was married at Waverly to John HAISLEY, where they continued to reside until 1889 when they removed to Franklin. Mr. HAISLEY died July 1, 1901
Mrs. HAISLEY’S daughter Jennie married Miles J. ABBOTT at Waverly in 1871, and she died in 1898. Her children Mrs. A. D. LANE of Omaha, Neb., Mrs. E. L. STANFIELD of Norfolk, Neb., and Charles E. ABBOTT of Fremont, Neb., are the surviving relatives.
At the early age of 17 years Mrs. HAISLEY was converted and for 70 years led an earnest Christian life. At the time of her death she was a member of the Congregational church of Waverly.
Brief services were held at the residence in Franklin at 1 o’clock Tuesday, July 29, Rev. Peter KITTEL of the Franklin M. E. church officiating. Music was furnished by the choir of the M. E. church, which sang several of Mrs. HAISLEY’S favorite hymns. The body was then brought to Waverly and funeral services conducted in the Congregational church by the pastor, Rev. L. A. HOLP. Music was furnished by the Congregational choir. The pall bearers were F. H. WEMPLE, J. C. DEATHERAGE and I. H. COE of Waverly, Thomas MILLER, Lee CALDWELL and J. B. BURCH of Franklin.
Interment was in East cemetery.
A large number of friends were in attendance at the funeral, many being present from both Franklin and Waverly.

“For a week past the many friends of Rev. J.C.
