daughter of Henry Harrison Showers - Lou Ellen Goodman

Mrs. Dr. Allen Douglas McReynolds died Thursday evening at 4 o'clock. She was sick only a few days and her death was a sad surprise to many who had not even heard of her illness.

Mrs. McReynolds had lived in Stamford only a short time (nine months to the day) before her death. She and Dr. McReynolds were married at Elkton, Ky., and came directly to Stamford to make their home. They had begun housekeeping in their beautiful new residence on McHarg Avenue about a month ago.

The remains, attended by Dr. McReynolds and T.J. Halsel, were shipped to Elkton, Ky., for interment.

Mrs. A.D. McReynolds, the wife of Dr. A.D. McReynolds, died on Oct. 6 at 4 p.m. at her home. Her name was Miss Bettie Showers and that had married last January.

She was a devout member of the Christian church, and as a young lady, she was a leader of society in her home town as well as the light of the home and the idol of her father's heart.

Mrs. McReynold's had no relatives in Stamford, but she had many friends who were ready to render her every service within their power.

When Mrs. McReynolds' condition continue to grow worse, telegrams were sent to her parents at Elkton, Todd county, Ky., and to Dr. Smoot, of Dallas. Dr. Smoot who had attended her in a previous illness, came in answer to the call.

Mrs. McReynolds' father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Showers, of Elkton, Ky., had, after receiving the telegram, started to see their daughter; but when they arrived at Memphis, Tenn., they received another message stating that their daughter was dead, and that her remains would be taken back to her old home for burial, so they turned back to await the sad homecoming of their daughter.

Mrs. Halsell, who had remained so close to her friend, made all of the arrangements. The watchers were four young ladies and they were helped by the men of the K. of P. lodge of Stamford.

The pall-bearers were Messrs. Colbert, Griffin, Martin, Penick, Adams, White and Flournoy - all members of the K. of P.

The grief-stricken husband, parents, brother, and sisters have in their sorrow, the deepest sympathy of the good people of our town and vicinity.
