Birth: Sep. 18, 1856
Vernon Township
Crawford County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 9, 1904
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

Cornelia Anna, daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth Andrews of Vernon township, died at the home of her brother, Howard Andrews of Nashville, Tenn., May 9 at noon. She was born Sept. 18, 1856. She was taken ill at St. Louis, Mo., the last week of February but had recovered sufficiently to accompany her brother to his home in Nashville on April 11, and although very weak she had great hopes of soon being able to come and visit her mother and friends in Crawford county, but her expectations were soon vanished. She suffered a relapse, followed by heart failure. Her sister, Mrs. H. J. Dennis of Conneaut Lake was with her in her last hours.

Cornelia, as she was familiarly called at home and by her friends in Vernon township, was a modest, unassuming woman and was held in high esteem. She attended school in Meadville and later attended Westminster college, where she graduated in the class of '77. She was a member of the United Presbyterian church and a lovely Christian character. Her funeral was held at the home of her brother, the Presbyterian minister officiating. Friends and neighbors made many beautiful floral offerings. Her remains were laid to rest in the cemetery of Mt. Olivet, Nashville, Tenn.

A large number of relatives and friends of the deceased mourn her loss. The mother, Silas M., George B., and Nannie L., residing at the old homestead; Mrs. H. J. Dennis of Conneaut Lake; Howard W. of Nashville, Tenn., Mrs. A. W. Douglas, Havre, Mont., survive.
{Meadville] Evening Republican, May 26, 1904.
