Another old pioneer has left us in the person of Cary Wardlow, who was called on the long voyage July 21st.  He had been a resident of Andrew county since 1841, and in all that time was never known to wrong a neighbor.  He came here when the country was young, and did his part toward developing its natural resources, and making Missouri the splendid commonwealth she is today. 

Cary Wardlow was born in Highland county, Ohio, Nov. 22, 1839; moved with his parents to this county in 1841, and on Nov. 21st, 1869, was married to Martha Hulse.  To this union were born four children, two of whom died in infancy.  The survivors are Thomas A. Wardlow and Mrs. F. E. Wade.  After his marriage he moved onto a farm adjoining the old home place, where he lived till May 15th, 1879, when his wife died, leaving him with three children.  He then lived with his mother till May 15th, 1881, when he was married to Martha Tyler, and the couple moved back onto their farm.  They resided there till last spring, when they moved onto another farm a mile and a half north of Fillmore, where he died, survived by the wife and the two children mentioned above. 

Funeral services were conducted at the family residence at 2 p.m. today, after which the earthly remains were deposited in the Fillmore Cemetery.
