Mrs. Ollie Allison Taken by Death
Ollie Allison, wife of James E. Allison, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Timothy Bailey, at Harrodsburg Sunday morning at 9 o'clock. Mrs. Allison and her husband resided in Nashville for several years, and operated a hotel and general store here. She was a daughter of Clayborn W. and Elizabeth Hibbard and was born in Jennings county April 3, 1881. Her age was 53 years and 26 days.
She was united in marriage to James E. Allison December 9, 1904, at Hope, Ind. Most of her married life was spent at Nashville, but because of failing health she went, several months ago, to make her home with her sister, Mrs. Bailey, at Harrodsburg. She was a member of the Nashville Methodist church and had tried to live a Christian life. Just before her passing she tried to comfort her loved ones by telling them not to worry for death meant only "Goodnight here and good morning there". Surviving are her husband, three sisters, and two brothers: Elmira, Harrodsburg; Ann, Indianapolis; Ellen, Newcastle; Henry Hibbard, Harrodsburg; William near Hope.
Funeral services were conducted at the Bailey home at Harrodsburg Tuesday at 10 o'clock a.m. by Rev. E. M. Davis, of the Nashville M.E. church. The funeral was largely attended. The body was taken to Hope for burial, where Rev. Cook, Baptist minister, conducted brief services.
