|Death: ||Oct. 11, 1912|
This was Lobertha / Labertha "Bertha" Landrum Almand. Since I am unaware of a tombstone, I have used the name given in her obit for the memorial.
Obit taken from The Madisonian dated 25 Oct 1912:
Just as the sun was setting for the close of the day last Friday, October 11, the soul of Mrs. Bertha Almand possibly one of the oldest persons living in Morgan county departed from this earth. She has been in declining health all the summer, but had only been dangerously ill for about a week.
The funeral was held at the Almand residence, on Saturday, at three o'clock by Rev. B. H. Trammell, after which the body was interred in the family burial ground near the house. A very large crowd of relatives and friends were present to pay their last respects to this much loved woman.
She leaves three daughters and a large number of grandchildren, who deeply mourn her death, and to them we extend our sympathy. She had also quite a number of great-grand-children.
Mrs. Almand was the widow of Mr. T. V. Almand, whom she married about seventy years ago, and who preceded her to the grave about five or six years ago. She was in her ninety-third year, and had lived an innocent, happy life. Even in her last days, she was bright and cheerful, and made others around her the same way.
Tinsley and Lobertha married on 10 Mar 1844 in Morgan Co., GA, by Lumpkin J. Garrett, JP, Bk. White (1834 - 1854), page 180.
