A Sad Death
About three weeks ago, Mr. Avalee Taylor and Miss Mollie Williams, both
of this county, were happily married in Lebanon, the ceremony being
performed by Rev. Jesse L. Murrell, uncle of the groom. Immediately
after the rites were solemnized the couple left for Jeffersonville,
Ind., where the groom was engaged in business. A few days ago Mrs.
Taylor was taken suddenly ill, resulting in her death last Monday
afternoon. The remains are expected here this (Tuesday) afternoon. May
God comfort the stricken young husband in this the darkest hour of his
Mollie was five months short of her 30th birthday. She was the daughter
of I. N. and Helena Williams, and the niece of well-known Adair County
businessman-turned-minister, Eld. Z. T. Williams.
