PASSING OF A PIONEER

the Death of Jonathan McMurry at Mount Hope

HELPED START THE TOWN

One of the First Settlers of Hutchinson and First Master of Masonic Lodge

Jonathan McMurray, one of Hutchinson's pioneers, and first master of Hutchinson Masonic lodge, died last evening at his home in Mount Hope.

He is about 75 years of age and is survived by the wife, and six sons and daughters, Claude McMurray of Mount Hope, Harry McMurray, who lives in Kentucky, Charles McMurray of Greeley, Colo., Mrs. Cora Worthington, of Haven, Mrs. Meda Dow , of Mount Hope, and Mrs. Edith Garrison of Mount Hope.

The funeral will occur at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon from the home at Mount Hope under Masonic auspices. The member of Reno lodge, of this city, of which the deceased was one of the charter members, will attend the funeral.

Johnathan McMurray settled in Hutchinson when the town first started in 1872, he and his brothers being very prominent in the affairs of the new town. He was one of the handful of Masons who organized the Hutchinson lodge, and for three years, 1873, 1874, and 1875 he was master of the lodge.

He was an apt musician, and played in what was known as McMurrary's orchestra in the early days. No social function or dance was complete in those pioneer days unless the McMurray orchestra, or string band, furnished the music. Others of the brothers are "Mac" McMurray, who now lives at Pratt, Ash McMurray, of Mount Hope, and Peter McMurray, who is in Oklahoma.4,9

DEATH OF MATTHEW RIDDLE

Our people were startled last Friday by the intelligence of the death of Mr. Matthew Riddle. He had long been a citizen of this city, the father-in-law of Judge J. McMurry and Mr. Gus Moad, a clerk for Mr. John Jordan, the Raff brothers and Mr. James Read and we can say in the fullest sense of the term, highly respected by all who knew him.

He was 65 years of age but possessed the vigor that comes from having lived a pure life. He thought kindly of poeple and treated them kindly. Indeed he was like on of whom Goldsmith wrote:

"E'en children followed with endearing wile, And plucked his gown to share the Good Man's smile."

He was a Free Mason and a member of the Presbyterian church. To his wife and children who survive him it is sweet to know that he knew the closet as a place of prayer.

The particulars of his death are these: He has for some months been conducting a store belonging to Mr. James Read at Arkansas City. That establishment was being moved to Hutchinson, where he was again to have taken charge of it. On the way near El Passo he was thrown from the top of the wagon and crushed beneath the wheels. He was expected home and the shock to his waiting family was nearly as cruel as the merciless iron that mangled him. He was buried last Saturday by the Masons and his remains were escorted to the place of interment by hundred (sic) of sorrowing friends. The day was one of exceeding beauty. Flowers were starting, the grass growing green and the sky as bright as if the angels had washed it. The solemn procession moved out to the music of a funeral march discoursed by the band.

Matthew Riddle was born in Centre county Pennsylvania, 65 years ago. The maiden name of the wife who survives him was Miss Beard, she was the mother of his children, seven in number. From Pennsylvania he moved to Illinois in 1857. During his whole life he was a farmer and merchant at intervals. From Illinois he moved to this country in 1874. In his manners he was always agreeable and considerate. He was one in whom every body would have the fullest confidence. At the funeral there was perhaps no sincerer mourner than Mr. James Read.6 
Burial*13 Apr 1878 Star Cemetery, Patterson, Harvey Co., Kansas; Inscription: Matthew Riddle, died Apr. 11, 1878 aged 60 years.
