Death of County Pioneer Brings Out Interesting Fasts; Lucy Alexander, Maryhill, Object

The death of Mrs. Luck Alexander, 84, a pioneer of the Bickleton section and owner of considerable land in that vicinity, and more recently a resident of the Maryhill community where she owned her home and small plot of garden land, was found dead in her bed Tuesday morning by neighbors who had gone to see her.
She had been severely ill for several days and her neighbors had made a point to call often to ascertain her condition. She would not allow friends to seek medical assistance for her.
Following the finding of the pioneer's body, officers, including Prosecutor C.W. Ramsey and Deputy Sheriff Ed Karge made a hurried investigation of the home. Aside from the wealth of sewing and other handwork owned by the elderly lady, much money was located.
Included in the finding were $840 in gold coin, all of old dating, in denominations of $20, $10 and $5 pieces; $2,958 in currency, all of the old bills which were larger than those in circulation now, in denominations of $100, $50, $10 and $1 bills; $13 in silver dollars, $6 in halves, $23.75 in quarters, $12.50 in dimes, $3.95 in nickels and $1.14 in pennies. A total of $2,303 in federal pension checks were also found uncashed. All of the money was found hidden in a closet, part in a bureau drawer and the balance scattered about the home.
None of the money was especially hidden where marauders would find it difficult to locate, the officers said. It might be possible that more money was in the home but the officials were not able to unearth it due to the press for a time at the investigation.
Funeral services for the deceased were conducted this morning at Maryhill with Rev. W. T. Jordan officiating. Interment was in the Maryhill cemetery. The arrangements were under the direction of the Chapman Funeral home.

Daughter of Thomas D. Embree and Pheobe Elvira Childers Butler.

Married George W. Alexander on 10 March 1886.

Apparently had a baby that did not live, as it is un-named but buried between her and her husband.

She was a very devout Adventist in the church there in Columbus. She tried to convert people to the point of actually driving family away, so they never came to visit her again.

Thank you Charlott Jones for this info
