THE WESTERN STAR, 26 April 1907
Mrs. Avaline Alley, aged nearly 70 years, died about noon yesterday at the home of her son, J. L. Alley, who recently settled on his land in the Biddle pasture in the southeastern part of the county. The cause of death was an over dose of morphine, which had been taken accidently. Mrs. Alley and her son, Charles, arrived the first of the week from Manchester, Kans., on a visit here. Her sudden death at this time is a severe shock to the bereaved relatives.

Mrs. Alley was a devout, peace loving and kind old lady. The funeral services are announced to take place at the M. E. church in this city at 2 o'clock p.m. tomorrow (Saturday) and will be in charge of the pastor, Rev. W. T. Ward.

Mrs. Evaline Alley was born on October 17, 1823, in Floyd co., Va., and died at the home of her son, J. L. Alley, in Comanche co., Kansas, on April 25, 1907, aged 83 years, 6 months and 17 days. She was married to Davis Alley in the early 1840's. They continued to live in Virginia until 1876 when they moved to Manchester, Okla., where they continued to reside. Mr. Alley died about five years ago at the age of 86 years. Four sons and one daughter survive. Mrs. Alley had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and a consistent Christian for nearly 50 years. She was one of the best of women. With her, "earth's loss is
heaven's gain."
