Aug 21, 1898- Died at her home at Fairmont east of Golden, Mrs Mary Ann Alford, wife of Wm Beebe Alford, aged 89 and 4 months. The funeral services were held at the home at Fairmount Tuesday at 11:00 conducted by Rev J.R White of Arvada.The interment was in the Golden Cemetery.
Deceased was married to Wm Beebe Alford (my note-born in Iowa)on June 20th, 1836 in Jefferson County, NY, and with him removed to Colorado on Aug 17, 1863 (I think that should be 1836- my note)and located at Fairmount in Jefferson County where she and her husband continuosly resided since.
Note: partial (relevant) note from a newspaper obituary. Posted here because there is actually more information on the deceased's husband (William Alford) than on the deceased (Mary Ann Fry Alford).Mary Ann is my ancester's sister.Hope William Beebe Alford is a piece of someone's puzzle.
