Source : Alexandria Times Tribune, June 8, 1914


Six Months Illness from Complications of Diseases Results in Death.

Just as the shades of night were beginning to fall Saturday evening, Mrs. Anna L. Vinson, age 50 year, a well known and respected resident of Alexandria, passed to her reward after a lingering illness from a complication of diseases that had kept her confined to her bed for the past six months. For several days in the past week the Vinson home at 702 South Harrison street had been visited by relatives constantly as the death of Mrs. Vinson was expected at almost any moment. The funeral service will be conducted from the First Christian church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and burial will take place in the Odd Fellow cemetery. Rev. George Winfrey will have charge of the service and the Rev. Wm. G. Smith, of Edinburgh, a former pastor of the Christian church here, and Rev. Whitecotton, of Anderson, will assist.

Mrs. Anna Vinson was born in the State of Ohio and at an early age moved to Madison county. She was married to A.M. Vinson, an Alexandria implement and automobile dealer. Mr. and Mrs. Vinson resided on a farm three miles north of Alexandria for a number of years, finally moving to this city where Mr. Vinson engaged in business. After her removal to this city Mrs. Vinson became active in church and social circles.

Besides the husband Mrs. Vinson is survived by her father, Joseph Wright, south of the city, and one sister, Mrs. Thomas Fox, of Pendleton, and five brothers, James, Edward, John, Charles White [sic] of this city, and Jesse Wright, of Anderson.
