Minnie Peters1

F, b. July 6, 1856, d. March 8, 1929
     Minnie Peters was buried at Edgar Cemetery, Edgar, Clay Co., Nebraska.1,2 She was born on July 6, 1856 at Darke Co., Ohio.1 She married Robert McConnell "Mack" Littrel, son of James Littrell and Margaret Oldham, on October 27, 1887 at Nebraska.1 As of October 27, 1887,her married name was Littrel.1 Minnie Peters died on March 8, 1929 at Angus, Nuckolls Co., Nebraska, at age 72.1 She The entire community about Angus and surrounding country was saddened when the report went forth that "Aunt Minnie Littrel had had a slight stroke and was unable to speak a word." This was Wednesday of last week and within 48 hours death had come to claim this noble woman. Minnie Peters was born in Darke county (sic), Ohio, July 6, 1856, and moved to this portion of Nebraska when only two or three years old – and lived here until her departure March 8, 1929. In 1880 she was united in marriage to Christian Wehrman and to this union were born two children, Cornelius and Rose (Basey) both of whom are resident of this community, the latter living with the parents at the mother's death. Mr. Wehrman preceded her in death June 6, 1886. Mrs. Wehrman was then married to Robert McConnell Littrel, known to all as "Uncle Max," October 27, 1887, which union was faithfully held before God and men until death severed this sweet relationship. When about 33 years of age she united with the old Oxbow Christian Church of Angus, coming from the Evangelical Church, and to this church she has ever continued a devoted, consistent and earnest member until the end. "Aunt Minnie" was of the blessed rare type of old-fashioned mothers and when her brother's children were left alone, caused by his death, her generous mother-heart reached out, even beyond her own children and home and selfish interests and she like the Savior of old said "Suffer the children to come unto me, and forbid them not." Yes, "Come unto me ye who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." And so the Peters children gladly came unto her hospitable home and mother-love – four of them: Henry, Mary, Will and Cornelius – all less than six years of age, "Neal" only a babe, and these tender children under her guidance have grown into men and women and are today among our leading citizens as living testimonials of "Aunt Minnie's" great mother-love and kind-heartedness and each of them today rise up to call her "blessed." This mother was truly a rare woman, not only the mother of Neal and Rose, her own blood, and also the four helpless Peters children, but she was mother to a host of people for when the boys from Cotner College came out for preaching as their first experience only they can tell you how helpful they found this great patient loving hearted mother of Israel, and scores of them also rise up now and called her "blessed." Yes, dear soul, we all look back to the days, many of them, when you helped, soothed, praised and encouraged each of us into trying again to give to the world and the "kingdom" the best that there was in us. May God help each of us to strive a little harder to be as thou would have us be, "more, more like Jesus." The Littrel family are truly blood related to a very large per cent of the community and to all the folk this family are definitely related as friends and neighbors.
Funeral services were held at the home a mile northwest of Angus, Sunday, March 10, 1929, and besides the children mentioned, she leaves to mourn her departure two grand children, and a host of other relatives, neighbors and friends. Among those who attended the funeral services from a distance were Mrs. Minnie Kely and family, Waverly, Nebr; Lizzy Brock and family of Farnam, Nebr; Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Adamson, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Littrel, and Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Littrel all of Wauneta, Nebr.
