AGED WOMAN DEAD.
Mrs. Amanda Bentley Passed Away
Yesterday Afternoon at Her Home.
Mrs. Amanda Bentley, widow of the late Judge Bentley, died at the family residence, 821 Ross avenue, yesterday afternoon. She was 78 years of age and had lived in Dallas for the last fifty-two years.
The venerable lady came to Dallas from Danville, Ky., in 1852, and settled on a farm ten miles southwest of Dallas. She removed to Dallas in 1877, and had lived here ever since. Judge Bentley, her husband, died in 1901, at the age of 82 years.
When Mrs. Bentley first came here, there were but three houses on the site of what is now Dallas, and she had seen the place grow from a small beginning to its present size and importance.
J. B. and George Titterington are grandchildren of Mrs. Bentley.
