Bales was born in Mercer County Missouri, Feb. 18, 1872.At an early age she met and married John McNutt, to this union seven children were born which survive their mother besides her husband and family she also leaves an aged mother, two brothers and two sister to mourn her loss. In the spring of 1903, Mr. and Mrs. McNutt and family moved on their homestead eight miles south west of Arnett where they have since resided. Mrs. McNutt united herself to the church while quite young and she so lived when the summons came to join the innumerable caravan that moves to the pale realms of shade, where each shall take their chamber in the silent halls of death, she went and like the galley slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust she approached her grave like one who wraps the drapery of her couch about her and lies down to pleasant dreams. Interment at the Arnett Cemetery Saturday, Feb 11 at 2 P.M.
