The following obituary had been clipped from a newspaper and inserted in pages of an old book. I thought I would post it here to see if anyone is connected to this family.
"Death of former Barton County Girls: -- Nettie Bufton Schopf was born July 19, 1881 near Oakton, passed away August 24th, at St. Luke's hospital in Denver where she had been rushed on August 23rd, when a grave condition developed for an emergency operation. On Thanksgiving day, 1907, Nettie Bufton was united in marriage to Ira M. Schopf, a former Barton county boy, at the Bufton home in Lamar. they immediately departed for Cheyenne where Mr. Schopf had been for several years. They spent some years in Cheyenne and Egbert and in the spring of 1919, Mr. Schopf went into the mercantile business at Pine Bluff, also in Wyoming, where the family home is, and made many friends. Mrs. Bufton is survived by two sons, James Morton of Illinois, Wiliam and Mrs. Junior Strickland, the two latter being with their mother when she became ill. James was unable to attend as the Schopf's first grandson was born just after his mother had passed away.
Mrs. Bufton ws quite active in the M.E. church and Order of Eastern Star, having served as Worthy Matron of that order in 1937-38. funeral services were conducted in the Pine Bluff M.E. Church August 27th with regular pastor in charge also O.E.S. services. Out of town relatives attending were Mr. and Mrs. Hilary Bufton and daughter Mary, all of Kansas City, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Schopf, Mr. and Mrs. Eldon Schopf, all of Casper, and the former's daughter Mrs. George Guy of Cheyenne." --A Friend

The above obit was typed as printed in the newspaper, including any errors. I believe Lamar is in Barton Co. Missouri and Cheyenne, Egbert and Pine Bluff(s) are all in Wyoming.
