The Barber County Index, March 22, 1899.

Adaline Lindley

Died: Adaline, youngest child and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T.L. Lindley, died on Friday, March 17, 1899, at 2 o'clock a.m., at the age of 1 year, 6 months and 17 days.

She was not sick more than twenty-four hours. Like many other children at this time of the year she was afflicted with a cold several days. About 48 hours before her death she was taken with the measles but was getting along well the first day, but the next day there was a change for the worse, pneumonia developed and little Adaline passed away.

The funeral services were held from the family residence on Saturday, Rev. W.A. Cain conducting the ceremonies.

Adaline was a sweet baby and a source of pride and joy to the loving parents. The parting is sad and the grief can only be comprehended by those who have had the same sad experience.

In their irretrievable loss Mr. and Mrs. Lindley have the sincerest sympathy of their friends.


Thomas Lawson LINDLEY, brother of Adaline Lindley, who was born after she died.
