Turnbull Funeral at Caddo Today
The funeral services for Timothy Turnbull of Caddo, who died Friday morning in the sanitarium at Sherman, were held this morning at Caddo. Rev. Father S. L. Wiserman, pastor of St. Catherine’s Catholic Church of Durant officiated and read mass at six o’clock at the home of Judge John Boland, brother-in-law of the deceased. The body was then taken for burial to the Turnbull old home, ten miles east of Caddo.
Mr. Turnbull was given the rites of the Catholic Church because he died in that faith, having declared his conversion and been baptized shortly before his death.
Because of the prominence of the Turnbull family the funeral was largely attended. Quite a number from Durant were in attendance.
