Pioneer Oklahoma Dies At Her Kellyville Home

Funeral Is To Be Held There Tuesday
Kellyville, Ok.. April 17-- (Spl)
--Funeral services for Mrs. Jennie Irene HOUSTON, 77 year old pioneer of the west side, and known to hundreds as "Aunt Jennie," will be held here this afternoon, Reverend Castleman of the Christian church in charge. Burial will be at Sapulpa.
Mrs. Houston died at her home here Sunday following four years of ill health with rheumatism.
During the opening of Oklahoma in 1889, and thereafter, the Houston family became one of the best known in the central part of the state.   Coming from Warsaw, Ind., where Mrs. Houston was born and later married Hamilton Bruce Houston in 1869, and the couple came to Kansas by covered wagon and later settled a claim near Stillwater.
The Houston Hotel was one of Stillwater's first, and is still operating, under another name.
Mr Houston was for many years a deputy United States marshal and was one of the group of marshals who raided the little town of Ingall's, holdout of outlaw's, in the early 90's. Houston's brother, Tom, was one of the officers killed.
Although she had seven children of her own, Mrs. Houston mothered the five children of the dead officer until they were grown, and in Stillwater acquired the affectionate name "Aunt Jennie."
In 1906 the family removed to Kellyville.
Surviving besides the husband are five sons: Fred W., Forest D., and Bruce Houston, all of Kellyville and C. V. "Sam" Houston of Tulsa and M. B. Houston of Medio station; two daughters, Mrs. M. E. BASIL of Stillwater and Mrs. J. E. NICHOLS of Tulsa. Three brothers, 18 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren also survive.
