Alone and Suffering Fatal
Injury.

Columbus, Ga.. January 30. (Special.)--
Mrs. Sarah Albright, aged 85 years, has
died at her home at Mechanicsville, Ala.
from burns received Saturday morning.
Although she had several children who
offered her a home with them, Mrs. Albright
preferred to remain at the old homestead,
and to the last busied herself with her
household duties. Saturday morning some
of her neighbors, who went to her house,
found her horribly burned. Just how the
accident occurred is not known, as there
was no one else at the house at the time.
Mrs. Albright was the widow of the late
Judge Oswell Albright. She is survived by
five sons and two daughters, as follows:
Rev. W. H. Albright, of Atlanta; Judge
George A. Albright. of Texas; Professor
J. A. Albright, principal of the school
at Langdale. Ala.; Rev. T. D. Albright.
of Florida; J. J. Albright, of LaGrange;
Mrs. Sallie FEARS, of Huntsville. and
Mrs. F. C. Blackmon, of Columbus.
The funeral took place from the
Methodist church at Mechanicsville.
=========================================

Mechanicsville is in northern Lee County, AL near Lake Harding.

Sarah's maiden name is believed to be WHEELESS. Does anyone have info on her parents?
