DEATH=DEATH OF MRS.SARAH JANE SMITH=There passed away Friday night, Mar.10,1911, at the home of her nephew, Mr.Wilbur Alley, in this city, one of the oldest and most venerated citizens of the city, in the person of Mrs.Sarah Jane Smith, who succombed to the inevitable after being an invalid for the last four or five years, and having been confined to her room and bed for about five weeks. Mrs.Smith was a native of Tennessee, having been born in Moscow, in that state on Dec.9,1827, and was the oldest child of Mr.& Mrs.J.H.Alley.

Mrs.Smith was a devout Christian woman, having joined the Methodist church in early girlhood, and in which she worked many years until her health prohibited her particiapation. The interment took place in Byahlia, Miss. cemetery Sunday afternoon, with Rev.Davis of Methodist church, that city, officiating, and the funeral widely attended.
