Iris grew up in Cumberland and attended Allegany High School. After high school, she worked several jobs, including Mason’s Barn and Telephone Answering Service. Her favorite job was at the B & O, where she met and married Herb, and became a homemaker. She was Methodist by faith. Iris was a member of the D.A.R.; the UTU, Chapel Hill Lodge 176, and Cumberland Aerie 245, F.O.E., where she enjoyed helping out with bingo when she was younger. More than anything, Memaw, as she was affectionately called, loved her family. She was never too busy to be there for anyone who needed help or a hug. In her early years, she loved roller skating, bowling, and bingo, but took time to serve as a Girl Scout and Cub Scout leader for her kids. In later years, she found slot machines to be her total pleasure. Survivors include her husband, Herbert Francis Dawson Sr.; two daughters, Sandi Hnilica and husband George, and Dee Owens and husband Harry; a daughter-in-law, Nancy Dawson; six grandchildren, Dena Couturier and children Harmoni and Noah, Dillard Irvin and wife Kathy and children Amber and Ashley, Dustin Hnilica and wife Jennifer, Krista Friend and husband Jimmy and children Curtis, Madison, Joe, and Sarah, Amber Beachy and husband Darren and children Micah and Jonathan, and Herbert W.

Her husband, Jacob Dawson, preceded her to the glory land about five years. The deceased had been confined to her home for a number of years with a complication of diseases. Although she bore her sufferings patiently, only waiting for the summons of the blessed Master to call her home. About 50 years ago, she gave her heart to God and enlisted under the banner of king Emmanuel and ever since has been battling and toiling for the master. She was a loving and faithful companion and a kind and devoted parent, and will be greatly missed in the home circle, as well as by her many friends in the community.

H. and Miss Sarah M., who are unmarried and reside at home. Also Mrs. Mary R. Schell of Cabin Run, Mrs. Susie C. Johnson of Shaw and Mrs. Julia Iser, of Rawlings. Her remains were laid to rest in the Mt Zion cemetery Friday, there to wait the final summons of come ye blessed of my father inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. The services were conducted by her pastor, Rev C P Dyche, who used for the occasion the 40 chapter and 4th verse of Isaiah. The pall bearers were Messrs John Kemphier, H. T. Daniels, David Martin, Henry and Reese Bailey and (L/I?) L. Vanmeter.
Farewell mother, thou has left us
  Sad and lonely here to roam;
But your toils on earth are ended,
  And the Master called you home.
Long and patiently you waited,
  But at last the summons came;
Now your sufferings here are ended,
  And your work on earth is done.
Though we sadly miss you, mother,
  And the parting gave us pain;
  But thou art free from pain and sorrow
  We would not call thee back again.
Thou hast gone to yon bright heaven,
  Far beyond the crystal sea;
No more on earth to meet you, mother,
  But one by one we'll come to thee.
Yes, one by one we'll meet you mother,
  Over on that golden shore;
Free from sickness, pain and sorrow
  Parting there is known no more.

DAWSON, Noah Wilmot

Dawson, Md. - The death angel visited our peaceful community Monday, March 24, 1913, and claimed for his victim little Noah Wilmot Dawson, the seven-year-old son of Rev. S. D. and Emma J. Dawson. Death was due to membranous croup from the effects of measles. Little Noah was a bright boy and was the pride of the home where he will be sadly missed. Also his bright smile will be missed in the Sunday school. But God in his infinite wisdom thought best to take him, so he has gone to join the Sunday School in the great beyond. While it is sad for us to give him up, God knows best and we will submit to his Holy will and exclaim, "The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away. Blessed be the name of the Lord. And not our will but Thine be done." Weep not, dear parents, little Noah has left this troublesome world of sin and sorrow and has gone to join the angelic host above and is only waiting and beckoning for you to come and join him. Be faithful a few more days or weeks at most, and God will call you hence to join him in that sun.
The angels came and took him,
We’ll see him here no more.
But by and by we’ll meet him,
On that bright celestial shore.
I know 'twas hard to give him up,
Your darling little son.
But God knows best, just trust in him,
And say, "Thy will be done."
By and By you’ll go to meet him,
In the home beyond the sky,
Where parting will be ended,
And will be no more good-bye.

DAYTON, Patrick M.

Patrick M. Dayton, one of our oldest and most highly respected citizen, died at the home of his son, Charles M. Dayton, in Keyser, Sept 15, 1911, was was buried in the Dayton Cemetery last Sunday afternoon. The funeral services were held in the M E Church, the sermon being preached by the Rev. F. H. Havenner. The services were very largely attended. Six of his nephews were his active pallbearers and six of his old neighbors were the honorary pallbearers. Mr. Dayton was born November 2, 1822 and would have been 89 years old had he lived until the 2nd of next November. When a young man, Mr. Dayton married Miss Rachael Kight, who preceded him to the glory world about eight years ago. There were born unto them seven children, five of whom are living. They are Mrs. Eliza Clark, Horace R. Dayton and Mrs. Annie Greenwade of Westernport, Md; R. S. Dayton of Dawson, Md; and Charles M. Dayton the efficient bookkeeper and accountant in the Potomac Milling and Ice company's office, of Keyser. All of his brothers and sisters are dead; he was the last member of a large family. Mr. Dayton was converted and joined the Methodist Church at a meeting held in a school house near Twenty-First Bridge, about 65 years ago; and through all these intervening years he was a faithful and useful Christian. For many years he was an exhorter and class leader in the church. He was very powerful in prayer and delighted in revival work. He has helped many a penitent should into the way of light and comported many sorrowing hearts. His influence for good will live on for many years and a host will rise up in that day and call him blessed. It is impossible to estimate the worth of such a life to a community and the hallowed influence of his noble example will linger like the soft glow of the twilight hour.
