MRS. ANNIE MQUOWN CRAIG DIES AT AGE OF 85 YEARS

WIDOW OF LOUISVILLE FUR AND HAT MERCHANT KNOWN THROUGHOUT SECTION

Mrs. Annie McQuown Craig, 85 years, one of the best-known residents of Jefferson county, died of infirmities at 9:15 o'clock yesterday morning at "Edgewood," her home near Pewee Valley. "Grandmother Craig," as she was known, enjoyed good health until a year ago. Her condition became serious about ten days ago. Members of the family were at the bedside when she died.

Mrs. Craig was born in Harrodsburg, Ky., and was the daughter of Prof. Alexander McQuown, who conducted a school at Forest, near Anchorage. She married Alexander Craig, a fur and hat merchant of Louisville, who died 42 years ago.

Her husband was the founder of the Pewee Valley Presbyterian church, and Mrs. Craig was the oldest living member. Her home was the scene of many social functions and was the setting for the "Little Colonel" stories by Annie Fellows Johnston, which enjoyed wide popularity.

She is survived by three daughters: Mrs. Louise Culbertson of Louisville; Mrs. Mamie Lawton, widow of Gen. Henry W. Lawton, who was killed in the Philippines; and Miss Fannie Craig; three sons, Alexander, Harry and Merton Craig; six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

The grandchildren are A. Craig Culbertson and William C. Culbertson, Mrs. Leroy Gayheart, Mrs. Oliver Bagby, Miss Catherine Lawton and Manley Lawton.

Funeral services will be conducted at the Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church at 10:00 o'clock tomorrow morning. Burial will be at Cave Hill Cemetery.
