7/13/98 Talked to Larry today and we were talking about his grandfather, and he started telling me about being a young man. He said he lived in Eden, MS and up until the time he was 14 or 15 years old he never left Yazoo County. He said once a month they would go into "town" to get supplies and Grandpa Ward would sell his produce, Dennis said he grew watermelons. Larry said it wasn't until he was 14 or so that he left Yazoo County and he went to Greenwood with the 4-H club to judge a competition. Then he told me about a time he rode with J. A. Strickland to Greenwood in a jeep that he bought after WWII and he said he was surprised they survived the ride there and back.

Reveille New Era Newspaper, Hill City, Kansas, September 5, 1929. Obituary

"Mary Adella Worcester Dezell; the eldest daughter of Leveret and Rosanna Worcester, was born January 11, 1857 at Broadhead Wisconsin, and departed this life Saturday, August 31, 1929, being at the time of her death 72 years, 7 months and 20 days of age.

She was united in marriage to Thomas Dezell in Wisconsin in September 1887. To this union were born three children, Inez, Lottie and Herbert. The three children survive their mother but her husband has preceded her in death about thirty years. Together with these children there also remain the following sisters and brothers with their families: Miss Martha J. Worcester, Eugene Worcester of Des Moines, Iowa, Mrs. Frank Blackburn of Gaylord, Kansas, L. H. Worcester of Hill City and Mrs. J. E. Clark of Norton, Kansas.

Mrs. Dezell had lived in this community nearly 40 years during all of which time she took an active interest in the cultural life of the community. It seems she was Hill City's first music teacher and gave
music lessons as freely to those who could not afford to pay as to those who could. She was much depended upon to lead the music for the churches, to play for funerals and to help in many other ways especially where there was sickness. She was a member of the Baptist Church from childhood. For many years she superintended the Baptist Sunday School here then as the Presbyterians had church at a different hour she played the piano for them. Her consistent Christian life has left its imprint upon this community, and we while thankful for what her life has meant and while sympathizing with her relatives, feel consolation and satisfaction in her hope of the heavenly home where she is united with the loved ones who preceded her and where she awaits the coming of those left behind.

"A woman that feareth Jehovah, and shall be praised. And let her works praise her in the gates."
