Waveland - Fountain A. Alward died last Monday at about half past 3 o'clock. He had been confined to his bed one week and five days. He was born in Waveland Dec 28, 1862. The funeral services were held in the Methodist Church on Tuesday at 3 o'clock p.m. conducted by Rev. J.J. Stalard of Russellville. His remarks were based upon the test, "What is your life?" The corpse was put to rest in the Presbyterian Cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Alward in the loss of their boy lost all. He was their only means of support and now that the parents are old and almost helpless, they will need the assistance of their friends and neighbors in many instances. The community deeply sympathize with the bereaved parents in their irresparable loss. Their boy, that was, but now, gone to rest was a graste ? young man modest and unassuming and was regarded as a good boy.
Thanks muches to Scott Busenbark for this one :)
