Hattie Brickey-Dreher was born in Washington county, Indiana, November 27, 1894, and died at the home of her parents, Lucius and Eliza Jane Brickey, near Fairview church, Holt county, Missouri, Jan. 20, 1916.
She was united in marriage to Solomon Dreher in Oregon, Mo., February 1, 1911. To this union three children were born, all girls [sic], two of whom preceded her in death, leaving one daughter living, Mary, aged 4 years. She united with the Antioch Christian church in Andrews [sic] County, Mo., in 1910, and remained a faithful member until death.
Her trouble was tuberculosis; and September 11, 1915, her husband took her to Akron, Col., with the hope that she would be benefited. But, alas! she continued to grow worse, and on Jan. 19, 1916, she was brought back to her parents' home, where she passed away the following day. An infant baby boy that she left here with her parents, aged three months, died Sept. 12, 1915, while she was in Colorado, and another child, a daughter, Alma, died while they ere in Colorado; all from the same dread disease-- tuberculosis.
She leaves to mourn her departure a father and mother, husband and one daughter, five sisters and four brothers.
Short services were held from the home of her parents by Rev. Sturgess and then the remains were taken to the Antioch Christian church, in Andrew county, near her former home, where funeral services were held and interment was made Jan. 21.

This is the third member of his family in a little over four months to die. He has but one child, a little girl, left. The funeral was at Antioch church, in Andrew county, Friday.
