Mrs. Stella Crane, wife of Fred Crane of Pine Village and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Andrews of Winthrop, died at her home last Monday at three o'clock from pulmonary consumption after an illness of one year. Deceased was 27 years old and leaves a husband and two small children, a son and daughter, one 10 months and the other 2 years old. Dr. DeHart was the attending physician. Miss Minnie Woodhams. This young lady was the eldest daughter and child of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Woodhams of Adams Township. She was born in February 1868 and died at the home of her parents on Thursday, November 9th, 1899 at 7 a.m., being in the 32nd year of her life. She had been ill three years and died from that dread disease, consumption. For three successive years she successfully taught the primary department in the public schools of Otterbein, and was a popular and beloved teacher with all her pupils. At the close of her teaching she went to Colorado in the hope of being benefited; but this was a vain hope and she finally returned home. The funeral was conducted at the family residence on Sunday, November 13th, 1899, at 10 o'clock a.m. and then the remains were taken to the Pond Grove Church where services were held, Rev. J.C. Kemp, the pastor at Otterbein, officiating at both places. The attendance at the house and also at the church was very large. Deceased for several years was a member of the Methodist Church, joining at Otterbein. At Pond Grove the children who had attended the primary school at Otterbein as pupils of Miss Woodhams raised the sum of $7 and purchased flowers, which they in a body took to the church and placed upon the casket of their friend and former teacher, as a touching mark of their loving remembrance and tender affection. Interment was made in the Pond Grove Cemetery. The death of Mrs. Albert G. Smith occurred yesterday afternoon at 12:10 o'clock, consumption being the cause. She contracted a cold last July and an attack of congestion of the lungs followed. Her death was not unexpected, and to within a few hours of its approach, she was cheerful and in very good spirits. Mrs. Smith was a noble woman and possessed many friends and true admirers. She was a devout Christian and her home was a sanctuary. The husband and three children-Gay, Jeannette and Paul-survive. The deceased was the eldest daughter of the late Captain James Park, and was married to Mr. Smith May 10, 1882. She was a member of Trinity M. E. church. The funeral services will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family residence and East South Street. Dr. W. D. Cole will officiate. Interment will be in Greenbush Cemetery. -Lafayette Daily Courier, Nov. 13, 1899 Deceased was formerly Miss Laura Park and lived here in the 70's, her father being a leading attorney. Several years she, with her parents, brother and sister, resided at Aix la Chappell, France, her father being U. S. Consul. During the Rebellion her father was in the service and was Provost Marshal. Sometime in the 70's Captain Park left Williamsport and located in Lafayette for the practice of his profession-the law. He died there a few years ago from cancer of the face. Mrs. Smith also leaves a mother, a brother, James, and a sister, Ella.
