Mrs. Humble's death date

There are three dates no researcher seems to have:

  1. Death of Pleasant Humble
  2. Death of Jane Markhum Humble (his wife)
  3. Death of William Smith Humble (his son)

I stumbled upon the death date for Mrs. Humble while doing research lately. A notice about her death was published in Palestine Daily Herald. Mrs. Humble's niece (Mrs. W. M. Hamilton) lived in Palestine, and was often visited by the Humble's.

Mrs. W. M. Hamilton left this afternoon for Humble, in response to a telegram announcing the very serious illness of her aunt, Mrs. P. S. Humble, who visited her here this past summer.

Mrs. P. S. Humble

Yesterday afternoon, at Humble, Texas, Mrs. Humble, wife of Judge P. S. Humble of that place died after a long illness. Mrs. Humble was an aunt of Mrs. W. M. Hamilton of this city, and during Mrs. Hamilton's childhood was a mother to her, she having lost her mother when she was quite a small child. Mrs. Hamilton went to Humble yesterday in response to a message announcing the serious illness of her relative, but she arrived too late to see her alive.

Note: That means Mrs. Jane Markhum Humble died on January 25, 1906.
