The Ouachita Telegraph Saturday, October 5, 1889 Page 3, Column 1
Miss A.D. Rhodes, daughter of Capt. and Mrs. W.S. Rhodes, of Island DeSiard, died at Mansfield Female College yesterday morning, aged 15 years. Miss Rhodes went to Mansfield about two weeks ago with several other young ladies of the Island to enter school there and was taken sick shortly after her arrival. Mrs. Rhodes went over Tuesday evening in answer to a telegram from Mrs. Rhodes, but not even the careful attention of mother and father, with the best medical skill, could stay the hand of the destroyer. The TELEGRAPH together with the many friends of the family, extend them their heartfelt sympathies. The remains will be shipped home this morning and the funeral will take place this evening at 4 o'clock, proceeding from the family residence to the Island cemetery.
NOTE: The October 12, 1889 issue, page 3, column 3 has another obituary for Miss Adelia D. "Decie" Rhodes.
