"The Roanoke Leader" - May 11, 1910:

MISS ADELAIDE BELCHER DIES AFTER A LONG AND TRYING ILLNESS.

After many months of a trying illness the gentle spirit of Miss Adelaide Belcher slipped away last Saturday afternoon. The dissolution occurred at the home of her father Mr. John W. Belcher in this place. The deceased had been a patient sufferer and had received the instinted care of loved ones through it all.
While in health Miss Adelaide was a favorite among many friends and in her illness the heart of the community was peculiarly drawn toward her. The sympathy of the public was manifested to the last when a large concourse, from
town to county, attended the funeral rites at Mount Pisgah church. The Philanthea class of the Methodist Sunday school of which the deceased had been a member, attended in a body and bore a number of lovely floral offerings.
The services were conducted by Rev. S.L. Dobbs to whose church the departed belonged. The remains were laid to rest beside those of the mother who had passed away only a few weeks previous.

"The LaFayette Sun" - May 18, 1910:

Stroud - Many readers of the Sun, will be grieved to hear of the death of Miss Adelaide Belcher, of Roanoke. The deceased young lady’s father was formerly a citizen of this vicinity and during her stay among us she formed a large circle of friends who extend their sympathy to the bereaved ones. May God guide them aright until the morn of Resurrection, when they shall meet to part no more.
