Obituary--The Edna Sun--January 22, 1931:

Funeral services held Friday from Edna M.E. Church for a Young Man of Sterling Character who Was Well Liked By All.

In the passing of Alva Bennett, Edna received a decided shock. Mr. Bennett was a young man who had a host of friends and relatives who regret very much his untimely death. Mr. Bennett had a quiet and unassuming disposition which made everyone his friend.

Funeral services were held at the M.E. Church last Friday and it was filled to capacity by relatives and friends who came to pay their last respects to the deceased.

Alva Bennett was born in Vaughnsville, Ohio, July 15, 1882 and passed away at his home in Edna, Kansas, January 12, 1931. Aged 48 years, 5 months and 28 days.

He was united in marriage to Miss Ora L. Baughman in 1911 and in 1925 Mrs. Bennett passed away.

In 1927, Mr. Bennett united in marriage with Laura May Forrest, and at the present time she is with her sister trying to combat a fatal illness, which is gradualy overcoming her strength.

He is survived by five sisters and four brothers. They are, Mrs. Wm. Thorn, Clyde, Ohio; Mrs. Emma Anderson, Greenfield, Mo.; Mrs. Clyde Phillips, Boulder, Colo.; Mrs. Anne Collins, Edna; Ora Bennett, Sigourney, Iowa; John Bennett, Edna, Kansas; Ed T. Bennett, Los Gatos, Calif.; Ira Clayton Bennett, Oswego, Kansas; and Roy L. Bennett, Chetopa, Kansas.
