One of Clarksburg’s Estimable Women Succumbs to Typhoid.
The Clarksburg Telegram., November 01, 1901, page 2

Mrs. Albert G. Fordyce died at her late home on West Main street at 9 o’clock Friday night after a long siege of typhoid fever. She had been in bad health some time before taking the fever and seemed on the road to recovery until a day prior to her death, when she had a sinking spell and she grew very much worse.

She was 61 years of age. Her husband, son, Harry, and daughters, Miss Bertha, Mrs. D. K. Reed, Mrs. Blair Virgie and Mrs. L. G. Brown, all residing here except the last named who lives in Pittsburg, survive her.

Funeral services were held at the residence Monday afternoon in the presence of a host of friends, Revs. S. K. Arbuthnott and W. F. Tyree officiating, and interment was made in the I. O. O. F. cemetery, the Stealey-Osborn Undertaking Company directing the funeral.

Mrs. Fordyce was a very exemplary and estimable woman and a large circle of friends mourns her demise. The bereft family have the profound sympathy of the community.
