Hill City Republican, Hill City, Kansas July 20, 1899
The many friends of Mr. Thomas Dezell will be grieved to learn of his sudden death, which occurred early this morning at his home, 325 North Prospect Street. Mr. Dezell was seated on the back porch of his home reading a paper about 6:15 o'clock when suddenly he was seized with pains in the neighborhood of the heart and fell forward on the chair. Dr. Durn was called and responded immediately, but before he arrived, Mr. Dezell had passed away. Dr. Durn made an examination and found that neuralgia of the heart was the cause of death.
Mr. Dezell has been in the employ of Mr. Dilts, a carriage maker on West Huertano Street for over three years and was held in high esteem by many friends. He was at work as usual at the carriage work yesterday. Later he told Mr. Dilts he was not feeling well and thought he would rest during the remainder of the day. However, he remained around the place, and last night was feeling well. He dressed this morning and intended to go to work when he was attacked with the terrible pains.
Mr. Dezell was 54 years of age and is survived by a wife, three children and a brother. He was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, and carried a life insurance of $2,000 in the ledger. His brother who lives in Minnesota has been notified of his death and the funeral arrangements
will not be made until word is received from him.
According to letter to my father on April 21, 1983 from Woodmen of the World where Thomas had a life insurance policy, "Thomas Dezell joined Modern Woodmen on December 27, 1884. He belonged to Camp 71 located in Brodhead, Wisconsin. Mr. Dezell was born June 1, 1845. He died July 13, 1899 at age 54 of neuralgia of heart. Mr. Dezell was a carriage maker. Additional information: Habits: None; Weight 130; Nationality: Canadian; Height: 5'6"
Family History: Living-father, brother and sister. Deceased-mother, age 30, cause of death unknown. (This information was completed by Thomas on his application for membership in 1884, and then recorded on the death record.
Our society issued a check on August 21, 1899 for $2,000. These early records to not name the beneficiary."

had a Charles Cardwell that belonged to this family.. maybe John's middle name is Charles.??
Note H00089 Index
In 1900 Census it shows that she has one child who is living...assume that Hattie, aged 20 is her daughter since she was not listed with Samuel and his first wife, Sarah E in 1880 census
In family file passed down shows her last name as Campbell. However, Rand Cardwell shows her name as Martha K. Humphrey. Need further research to determine correct last name, assume Humphrey is correct.
