Miller Rowley "Rolla" McBride

The Western Star, September 29, 1916.

Death of M.R. McBride in Hutchinson

M. R. McBride, who was well known in this county, died at his home in Hutchinson, Kans., at 9 o'clock p.m. on Thursday, September 21, 1916, after an illness of nearly three weeks, typhoid fever being the ailment. He was patient and uncomplaining throughout his entire sickness and when the end came he seemed prepared to go. Brief funeral services were held at the home in Hutchinson. The body was brought to this city on Saturday and laid to rest in the Coldwater cemetery on Sunday afternoon, following a very appropriate and largely attended funeral service which was conducted at the Presbyterian church by the pastor, Rev. A. G. Alexander.

Miller Rowley McBride was born in Knox-co., Ohio, on July 25, 1874, thus being at the time of his death, 42 years, 1 month and 27 days of age. In 1883 he moved with the family from Ohio to Missouri, but about a year later, or in the spring of 1884, they decided to come further west. They settled on a claim in Avilla-tp., this county, not farm from where Henry Knecht now lives. Later the family moved to Avilla, and there, about 23 years ago, the father, who was a Civil War veteran, died. The family finally moved to Coldwater and continued to live here for several years.

On October 5, 1898, in this city, deceased was united in marriage with Miss Albertie Schneider, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Schneider, who were early settlers here. The wife, a son, Howard, aged 14, three brothers, Berry and Frank of Hutchinson and George, of Protection; also one sister, Mrs. Guy Ellsworth of this city, and the mother, now aged about 75, survive. To these the sympathy of all goes out in this their sad bereavement.

While a resident of Coldwater the deceased, who was always known here as "Rolla" McBride, learned the trade of tinner, being employed by Geo. H. Torrey. About 9 years ago he moved to Hutchinson and there continued to work in the same line of business. He was a faithful and capable workman, and in his every relation to those about him was loyal and trustworthy. He had been a member of the U. B. church for about three years. He was a member of the Woodman lodge, and at the time of his death carried $2000 life insurance in that order.
