OBIT: Obituary for Elizabeth "Bessie" Ingram Aten - Mrs. Elizabeth Aten died of typhoid fever at her home in Browning, June 5th, 1904. The funeral was conducted by the Rev. E. P. Spurlock at the Browning M. E. church Tuesday, June 7. Elizabeth Ingram was born in Browning July, 18, 1875. She was converted and joined the M. E. church 13 years ago and has since lived a faithful christian life. She was married to Ward Aten June 1, 1892. To this union three children were born. All of whom survive her.

SOURCE: newspaper clipping.

Note: found in a scrapbook in Roswell, New Mexico by Nancy Harvey while going though her mother's things after her death.

"The scrapbook is one which my great grandmother, Amanda Bryan Wetzel, or perhaps my grandmother, Nettie Wetzel Dean, pasted lots of obituaries of family and friends. These families were from around McDonough, Fulton and Schuyler Counties. These obits are probably around a hundred years old or may be more." -N.H.
