MRS. ALFORD FOLLOWS HUSBAND TO GRAVE
Mrs. W.D. Alford passed away Monday evening at 6:40 o'clock at her home northwest of Franklin, after an illness of less than a week's duration, of pneumonia. It was but five short days ago that death, in the same guise, took William D. Alford, the husband of the deceased. Mr. Alford passed away Wednesday night, March 21.
Sarah E. Seymour was born December 6, 1858, the daughter of Edward B. and Anna Seymour. She was born near Franklin and that community has since been her home. In youth she became a member of the Methodist church and at Providence she was known for her steadfastness and devotion. Her circle of friendship was wide and enduring and all who knew Mrs. Alford will cherish her memory with love and respect.
Deceased was married to Mr. Alford March 16, 1906. Two sisters survive, Mrs. J.A. Stice and Mrs. C.E. Criswell. A third sister, Mrs. J.H. Wheeler passed away three years ago. She leaves also four step children, for whom she filled a mother's place with unremitting devotion. They are Mrs. Leila Asplund, Chicago; Frank Alford, Indianapolis, Ind.; Roy Alford, Mapleton, N.D., and Ernest Alford at home.
Funeral services were held Wednesday morning at Providence church southwest of Franklin. Interment was in Providence cemetery.
