Harriet S. Alexander Grave Marker

MOUNT CLARE, Mar. 3.– Mrs. Emory Brand was called to Parkersburg last Saturday morning on account of the death of the late Mrs. Harriet Alexander, which occurred the previous evening at the home of her son-in-law, H. C. Morris.

Mrs. Alexander was the widow of the late T. B. Alexander, who had preceded her in death by fourteen years. They were both raised in or about Clarksburg, where they spent the most of their lives, until about two years previous to the death of the husband who held a position in the store of the West Fork Mining Company at this place. Since his demise the widow made her home with her daughter with whom she died.

Mrs. Harriet Alexander was near four score years of age; was a venerated Christian lady, and loved by all who knew her for her patient and kindly disposition, although a great sufferer the most of her life.

As is generally known, her remains, were brought to Clarksburg where appropriate funeral obsequies were held in the spacious home of Thomas Tinsman on South Third Street, who generously opened his doors for the occasion.

The Rev. G. D. Smith of the First Methodist Episcopal Church conducted the services; and the pall bearers were the deceased’s two sons: Seaton and Charles; son-in-law H. C. Morris; grandson Herbert Morris, and James Echols; the latter three all from Parkersburg.

Those attending from Mt. Clare were Mrs. John J. Lowther, Mrs. H. M. Smith, Mrs. Henry Bassel, and W. M. Morris. Mrs. Brand remained in Parkersburg to be with her brother’s family while he and wife attended the funeral, and made a short visit with friends and relatives at Clarksburg and Mt. Clare. They left for their home Tuesday, and Mrs. Brand will return to Mt. Clare Wednesday.
