HAD LIVED MORE THAN A CENTURY Mrs. Rachel Campbell Who Died of Old Age, Believed to Have been 102

Mrs. Rachel Campbell, who died Sunday and was buried yesterday, was the oldest woman in Chanute. She was so old that her age could only be conjectured by herself and her children. William Campbell, her oldest son, thinks that she must have been past 100. She remembered the great fall of stars which took place in 1833, but thought that she was only 15 years old then.
