Anna B ALEXANDER (1858 - 1877)

Kokomo Saturday Tribune - Saturday, 7 Jul 1877

A Very Sad Death
A cast of gloom came over the entire community last Tuesday evening when the death of Miss Anna B. ALEXANDER was announced. It occurred at 9 o'clock. The deceased was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John C. ALEXANDER and was ill only two weeks. The fatal disease was typhoid fever.
Previous to her last illness, the deceased had always been in robust health. Indeed, Miss Anna was the picture of perfect health. She was in her nineteenth year and was a bright, industrious intelligent girl, beloved by all who knew her, and her circle of acquaintances was quite large. She was a member of the Christian Church for some time past, having united at a time when Miss Flora HINTON, Josie GEORGE, Lizzie KING, Ada GARRIGUS and other young ladies also joined.
The funeral occurred from the Christian Church on Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. The services were conducted by Elder C.M. ROBERTSON, assisted by Rev. A. S. WOOD. A large number of carriages followed the remains to the place of burial in Crown Point Cemetery. The high esteem in which the deceased was held by many acquaintances was shown in the sad expression on the face of every one who attended the funeral.
One of our brightest young ladies is gone. But her life was a beautiful model in that she was a devoted christian of amiable disposition, her face always wearing a smile which gave good cheer to those about her. Anna has left us, but she has gone to that happy , peaceful abode where there is no more sorrow or parting. May her friends all meet her there.
