Obituary from the Time-Record. Blackwell, OK. Thursday, May 31, 1900. Page 8, column 4.
Alice America Athey, daughter of John T. and Amanda F. Sharp, was born Feb. 9, 1867, was married June 8, 1886 to W.G. Athey. To this union three children were born, she united with the Christian Church at the age of 17 and lived a consistent christian until she departed this life May 25,1900. Rather sad circumstances attended her death. She was living with her husband and family in the state of Missouri until a short time ago when they started for the more healthful climate of Oklahoma in an emigrant wagon. All thinking, no doubt, that this climate would relieve the wife and mother of the dread disease, comsumption. Which has been for sometime ravaging her system. Having relatives about five miles NE of Blackwell,the little family found rest and shelter the latter part of the week. But just in time for the loved one to take her departure to the home not made with hands, that the eternal resting place. The funeral was conducted at the school house five miles north of town by E.L. Day of the Christian church at 1 o'clock Monday. Interment at the Blackwell cemetery.
