On Tuesday, September 19th, 1905, was another impressive burial service. Ida Taylor, an attractive young woman, a great granddaughter of the pioneer Horace Taylor, born
a littleway east of the old West Point, was shot at the old Adonijah Taylor place, now known as Binyon's Hotel, a short time after her marriage, by a young man who had wanted to marry her, but whom, it seemed, she had discarded. It was certainly a cruel murder, of which in these lawless times there are many.
The funeral procession passed from the Binyon Hotel to the Creston church, where the burial services were held, conducted by Rev. T. H. Ball, in the presence of a large assembly. To be thus murdered was sad. Sad events are constantly occurring in this world where accidents are so common, and there are, as in other things, degrees of sadness.
