With a sad heart and with the help of God I will try to write an obituary of my dear Mother Mahala Ison Caudill.
She was the daughter of Dock and Anna Creech Isom.

   She was born June 4,1878, and passed from this life January 26,1973, making her stav here on earth 94 yrs.,7
months and 22 days.  Many years ago she was married to Wesley Caudill he preceded her in death in 1928, Unto
this union were  born nine children; 6 boys and 3 girls. One son preceded her in death(Arthur Caudill. Now left to
mourn their loss, are Wendill, of Whitesburg, Ky,. Allie Jones of Premium, Ky. ,Arnold, Boyd, and Ella Carlson all
of Saint Mary, Kansas, Carl of Whitesburg, Ky. ,Anna Frazier of Premium, Ky:, and a host of grandchildren. Sister
Mahala Caudill joined the Old Regular Baptist Church in the year 1913. She was a faithful member until death: She
was a firm believer in the old time way. She never wavered to the right or to the left. She was strong in the faith..
Oh! how I miss her. But I believe with all my heart that I will meet her again, for I believe her soul is resting around
the throne of God in Heaven today I believe our loss is Heaven's gain. So children, if you want to see Mother again
you will have to fall out with sin and make Mother's God your God.
