Fannie Cornelia Vining Alexander
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 25, 1867
Death: Oct. 16, 1895

This darkly beautiful young woman was the daughter of George J. and Rebecca Cornelia Vining (also buried at Bellwood). She married Hunter Peel Alexander in 1888. Their first child, born in 1893, was a daughter, named Rebecca Cornelia for her grandmother.
Their son George Ludovic was born on October 2, 1895. Fannie lingered for two weeks before dying of a postpartum infection.
Strangely Fannie is not buried "with her husband's people" as was the custom, but was the first one laid to rest in her brother-in-law Benjamin Christopher's plot some distance away. It may be at this point that a family rift developed between the Vinings and the Alexanders which within five years had grown rancorous enough that Fannie's husband sued his dying mother-in-law.
