New Castle News 8 May 1901
Mrs. Agnes J. Allison of Pulaski, died Wednesday afternoon at her home in that place. She was 77 years of age and her death was in a great measure due to the infirmities attending advancing years. Mrs. Allison was the widow of the late George Allison, who was called to his rest several years ago.
For some time past she had been in failing health and life gradually and peacefully ebbed until the spark flickered and was extinguished. Mrs. Allison was born and reared in Pulaski township and her entire life was spent within a few miles of the place of her birth. She was the daughter of the late Joseph Carnahan, one of the early residents of that locality. After her marriage to George Allison the young bride and groom removed to a farm near New Bedford. There they lived for many years and raised their family. Eight children were born, five daughters and three sons. Four of the former have preceded their parents into the realm beyond the grave, and the surviving children are J.A., D.N. and J.W. Allison, all of Pulaski township, and Miss Josephine, who resides at home. For some time after the death of her husband, Mrs. Allison occupied the farm, where her entire married life was spent, but about three years ago she and her daughter removed to Pulaski, where the have been residing since.
Mrs. Allison had been a member of the Harber United Presbyterian church since the time of the organization of that congregation and she was one of its most faithful and earnest workers. For some time past failing strength interfered with her activity in behalf of the church, but during her earlier life she accomplished much good. As a friend and neighbor she was all that could be desired and many a heart will sorrow for her departure from this world.
She was a woman of the utmost conscientiousness and her entire life was directed in accord with her intensely religious convictions. Mrs. Allison will be sadly missed, both in Pulaski and in the vicinity where she formerly resided, but those who grieve will have the sweet assurance that the aged woman has but taken the transitory step from this world to the better life beyond.
The funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon from the family residence and the internment will be at the Pulaski cemetery.
