Birth: May 15, 1837
Death: Dec. 27, 1904

I ran across this fascinating newspaper article from a Dallas paper in 1897 about this death. I thought it might interest you. I've cited it at the bottom so if you want to paste it in bio section, it is referenced.


Mrs. Nancy C. Alcorn Sues
a Local firm.

An Elevator Accident Resulting
in Her Husband's Death
the Cause.

Mrs. Nancy C. Alcorn, Saturday filed suit in the district court against the Parlin & Orendorff Company in behalf of herself and daughter for $15,000.

The plaintiffs are the wife and daughter of Wm. C. Alcorn, who received injuries resulting in his death while riding in the defendant company's elevator in September of last year.

The plaintiffs allege negligence on the part of the company in the operation and use of the elevator without railings or safety guards for the protection of passengers using the same. The firm's agent in this city is William M. Robinson.

- February 7, 1897, Dallas Daily Times Herald, p. 12, col. 2.
