A letter from Catherine Roberts Pearson to Edward S. Pearson upon the death of James C. Pearson:(TP added punctuation but retained spelling) Sept 12, 1921 Bowling Green, Dear Brother and family. I will now try to write you about your Dear brother and my beloved husband. He was laid to rest in dear old Goshen church cemetery the 31 of August. I am sorry I have been so long writing you but I have been so torn up have not had a chance oh I am so torn up and feel so lonesome and miss my Darling so. Oh he was so good to me and this six years we lived together were happy days for us both. He often said he would not mind dying if it was not leaving me. I will make my home with my Daughter. All of James' children told me to come and stay with them as long as I wanted to. Of course I appreciate all of the kindness which has been shown me but oh it makes my heart ache when I hear them all say that very thing that was there came thru their mother that their father was a bad manager. I think worry and trouble agirvated the disease he had. He has not seen a real well day since we had Flu. He was only sick a little over two weeks but oh he suffered so much. The Drs drew his water and they got about a quart and four ounces but he seemed to grow rapidly worse from that time. I got Lynies letter and so sorry you could not come. He looked just like he did when living, such a sweet smile on his face. I am going to send Paul and Frank their fathers picture to you. Am so sorry you did not take it to them. Jimie made a will when the children were giving him so much trouble willing me all his personal property but I think it will take most every thing to pay funarl expenses and Dr bill. But Kizzies husband has a paper of agreement fixed if all the heirs will sign to give me if there is any money over expenses. I do not know if all will sign it or not. I was talking to Nelsons wife over the phone a while ago. She said Bro Frank said for some of the Pearsons to buy the place. I do not think any of the boys want it-I think Kizzie may buy it-I don't know. She said it should not go for nothing. Oh I am so glad you Dear folks came to see us but I felt like when you told him good by that would be the last time you would see him in this life. Of course I knew how poorly he was. He never complained before anyone. I am not mourning for him because he is gone but because I am lonely without him. I know he is out of suffering and sorrow and disappointment. Well I will close now as I want to write Brother Frank. Write to me some time. Love and best wishes to you all. I will allways look back with pleasure to the visit you all made us. I would be so glad to see you all again sometime. Give my love to the girls when you write. I beg to remain your sister. Katie M. Pearson, 922 Kentucky St, Bowling Green, Ky.
