The funeral service for evangelist Billy Sunday's mother, Mary Cory, was held on June 28, 1916 at the First Methodist Church in Ames. Here the procession follows Adams Mortuary's horse-drawn hearse through the farmyard south of town toward the Cory family cemetery. Today [2003], the Highway 30 interchange with South Duff Avenue is about where we see this 1916 procession. [See also: 93.499.3-5 and 97.527.2-5]
