"A 12 year old child of Richard Alderson, who lives at Coal Branch, in Highland Township, was buried at the Eugene Cemetery on Monday last. Quite a number of friends attended the funeral." - Newport Hoosier State, Wednesday, October 13, 1886

"Died of typhoid fever, Johnny R. Alderson, October 9, 1886, aged 12 years, 2 months, and 18 days. Once again we have entered the valley of humiliation and deep sorrow. Words fail us when we attempt to write what our crushed and broken hearts are enduring at this and bereavement. Scare one month ago Johnny was a boy of fine promise and expectation, sickness overtook him and hopes were blighted, yet everything was done for him, that kind, devoted parents and loving friends could do, but he rapidly failed and sweetly fell asleep in Jesus." Newport Hoosier State, Wednesday, November 1, 1886 (Obituaries provided by Carolyn Schwab)
