Rachel A. Young was born in Kansas City, Mo., on January 8th, 1844, and came with her parents to the farm two miles south of Belton, when only five years old and has lived since then in and around Belton excepting two years spent in Texas about the close of the war. She was married to Abe Jackson in 1858. To this union one child was born and it died when about three years old, while Mrs. Jackson was in Texas. Mr. Jackson was killed in one of the last battles of the Civil War while serving under the Confederate flag. Mrs. Jackson was married to G. G. Alderson in 1873. To this union was born four children, one dying in infancy; Ruth, who married Ferd Martin, died 13 years ago; while Chester and Naomi, now Mrs. Wm. Jackson, remain. Two brothers, G. W. Young of Gunn City and J. H. Young of Belton; two half-brothers and two half-sisters, J. E. Mullen of Belton, Mrs. Jas Brown of Kansas City, Mrs. Susan Lewis and Frank Mullen of Belton; her husband; two children and eight grandchildren are left to mourn her loss. With the passing of aunt Rachel, as she was familiarly known, passes a member of one of our oldest families. She knew the rough side of frontier and civil war life. Often she rode eight and ten miles to Sunday School and if a circuit rider came across the sparsely settled prairie they would have church. She joined the church soon after the civil war and was a member of the Presbyterian church at the time of her death. Mrs. Alderson was not a woman easily excited, but two weeks ago she had her teeth extracted and said to her husband, "George, I believe this will kill me." And, although she has been in poor health for sometime, there is no doubt the gas administered and the shock of the extraction was the cause of her death at about 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 21. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Monday morning, conducted by Rev. T. C. Brammer and burial was in Belton cemetery.
