Dullea, Paul Victor (I106)
5 "Liza" or Lize as she was known by her friends and family or "Liz" was the eighth child of Alfred and Selina Pester. She was born Resolven South Wales after her parents moved there from Aberaman, Aberdare.

Liza was a toddler, a little over two years old when her family emigrated to Fernie, British Columbia, Canada in 1904. The Pester family travelled on board the H.M.S Manitoba on a trip that took them a week. According to Liza's niece, Nellie Rogers Gusewelle, the family made their first stop in Pennsylvania to visit family who were living there. It is possible this was the Seymour family in Girardville Pennsylvania. The family have a picture dated in the late 1890's of Liza's Uncle Aquilla Seymour and his family. Eliza's parents Alfred and Selina had married in Girardville in 1882 and had their eldest child Jack there in 1884 before returning to England to live.

After their stay in Pennsylvania, along with her family Eliza went to Fernie, Canada travelling westwards from Quebec. While living with Fernie, Liza's older sister, Lizzie got married. Later the entire family moved to Coal Creek, Canada where the men in Eliza's family worked in the coal mines.

In 1908 Eliza along with her parents and brother and sisters, with the exception of Lizzie and Tillie (who had recently married) and possibly Jack, emigrated to Thurber Texas. They entered the U.S.A. at Rexford, Montana and continued travelling by rail through Idaho and on to Texas. A legal document of entry into the United States Of America kept by Liza's brother Jim verifies this route.

Thurber, Texas was a booming coal mining town at the time the Pester family moved there. They again engaged in coal mining. Eliza's father possessed his competency as a coal miner from Coal Creek, BC, Canada.

Many of Liza's childhood years were spent in Thurber. Her mother died when she was around nine years old. Her baby brother William died soon after he was born in 1908. Those children who were not of legal age continued to live with their father in Thurber. In 1919 when Eliza was around 18 years old, her father Alfred died of the Flu epidemic that was raging through Texas at the time. After her father's death, Eliza and her brother Jim went to live with her sister Lizzie and her family on main street in Edwardsville Illinois.

Lizzie and Frank had moved to Illinois early as the Thurber coal mines began to decline. Liza got a job at the shirt factory and worked there for a number of years. Later around 1925 Liza met and married William Rex Hacker who lived in the Collinsville, Illinois area Bill was a world war one veteran and his health wasn't too good. Eliza suffered from a hearing condition brought on from a severe case of measles as a child. Although the couple had no children they were very close to their brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews.

The author remembers both Liza and Bill being "full of fun" and loving to "cut up". Many parties and much dancing was held at their house with friends of the family coming in to play the fiddle and accordion. The author remembers that on New Years after the stroke of midnight everyone went out doors clanging on pots lids and beating on pans with a spoon. Delicious foods brought by everyone were eaten. Later the children were stretched out on Eliza and Bill's bed to sleep until the wee hours of the morning when the older folks decided it was time to go home.

Bill who died on 8/12/1950 preceded Liza by more than 40 years. Eliza, a very independent woman, made her way on her own with the help of her sisters Florrie and Lizzie and their children. Prior to Liza's death her helpers were her sisters

Florrie's children Ronald and his wife Clarice Mary and Jackie. All of Liza's family, parents, brothers and sisters had preceded her death when she died at the advanced age of 90. Eliza and Bill are buried beside one another at Sunset Hill Cemeteries in Edwardsville Illinois.

Decree Nisi for Bath Wife

Mr Justice Byrne in the Divorce Court Thursday granted a decree to Mrs Mary Irene Cowlishaw of George Street, Bathwick Hill, Bath on the ground of the adultery of her husband Mr Frederick Gordon Cowlishaw. The suit was undefended. The parties were married at St Mary's Church, Bathwick in September 1937. The case for the wife was that the marriage was happy until 1945. In January her husband wrote from the continent admitting adultery with a Belgian woman in December 1944.

He was at the top of an underground incline trying to let a tub of coal down when the chain broke and possibly the back-lash killed him but he was alone so no one can say for certain. Perhaps, finding the velocity very great he had applied the brake too violently.

Emma Wall White Lasbury was born at Whetstone, near London, England, April 30, 1828. After a long life, characterized by sunshine, happiness, and good cheer, she passed into the Paradise of God, on Sunday, December 5, 1909, at 1:30A.M.

Miss Emma Wall White was united in marriage with Mr. Thomas Lasbury, May 18, 1858. After spending seven and one half years of their married life in England, Mr. and Mrs. Lasbury came to the United States of America, December 1865. For 44 years they made their home in Griggsville, Illinois. Mrs. Lasbury enjoyed the very best of health until July 1909, when she was stricken with the disease which never loosened grip until she had passed beyond the bounds of mortal ailments. Kind and faithful friends and her beloved physician did all within human power to alleviate her sufferings. During these trying months she was exceedingly patient and always, endeavoring to speak words of kindness to cheer the hearts of anxious friends. Mrs. Lasbury was a devoted communicant member of St. James Church, Griggsville, Ill. She found her prayer book a source of great comfort and consolation, even to the end of the journey she prized the leaves of the well worn comforter, when too weak to hold the entire book. Because of age the book was in leaves and she used the book as long as she could see.

Mrs. Lasbury was best known in her home. She quietly but truly lived her religion there. It is a thing of beauty and a joy forever to exemplify true character in the home. In this respect, Mrs. Lasbury will bear the closest scrutiny. In her death a loving couple have been separated, but it is only for a little while. The fidelity of that noble husband and wife is an example in this age that is worthy of limitation. May the strong arm of the Lord be around the living husband and may the sweet remembrance of true love comfort him. Such home life has large meaning in this world. May the Church of Christ be instrumental in building up and sending forth many persons with good strong pure lives. People of good character are held in everlasting remembrance. To such person death is but a sleep as Christ has taken away the sting of death and the power of the grave. In death the Christian simply chooses the ties to the things of this world, and opens them to nobler--and inexperencable and full of delight. The grass becomes a place of sweet rest for peacemakers in the sight of the Lord in the death of a saint. The wife, mother, grandmother and friend has passed on but, the memory of her best practical virtues live and will still live. She fell asleep in the faith of Christ and the body of the blessed resurrection.

To mourn the loss very deeply, Mrs. Lasbury leaves a beloved husband, four children, Thomas Lasbury Jr. of St. Louis, Mo., Mrs. C.H. McConnell of Peoria, Ill., Mrs. M.H. Rodway, and Mrs. M.M. Lasbury of Griggsville, nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, also two sisters, Mrs. Eggar and Miss White of Wimbledon, England. Dear Friends fix your hopes in the Christ she loved and trusted.

The funeral services were held in the home of her daughter, Mrs. M.H. Rodway, Griggsville, Tuesday, December 7, 1909, 2 P.M. The Rev. George E. Young, rector of St. James Church, Griggsville, Ill. read the comforting burial service of the church. The remains were interred in Griggsville cemetery to await the resurrection morn. May she rest in peace. 
White, Emma E. (I423)
50 A humorous story is told of one of the earliest appearances on the concert platform of Noel Fleming, the sweet-voiced tenor of the Williamson, Clarke and Meynell 'Chocolate Soldier' company. Mr Fleming, who was appearing with Clara Butt and Kennerley Rumford in the Albert Hall, London, came on to the platform, and the audience hushed as he was about to begin his song. In the front seats were his wife and little girl, the latter a mere toddler. The latter sighted him, and through the stillness a gleeful voice piped: "There's daddy! See him, mummy, in his good clothes!"

[Note: The Chocolate Soldier was a musical version of Bernard Shaw's 'Arms and the Man', music by Oscar Straus. Noel played the leading tenor part in Australia and New Zealand in 1911-12.]
