Alice McCasland Potter Obituary
Clark County Clipper, February 17, 1910
Alice McCasland Potter was born July 2, 1872, in Benton, Illinois, and died in
Ashland, Kansas, February 8, 1910. She was converted at the age of 14 years and
joined the First Baptist church of the former city. With her mother and
brothers she moved to Beaver county, Oklahoma, in the fall of 1887 and from
there came to Ashland in the spring of 1888. She was married to T. B. Potter
November 16, 1893. Six children have been born to them, three of whom survive,
Lillian, Edna and Donovan. She leaves a husband, mother, Mrs. James Biggs of
West Frankfort, Illinois, and a brother, Charles of this city. Hers was a
beautiful character, well balanced, always amiable and kindly disposed toward
every one; carrying with her everywhere the spirit of the Master. In her last
sickness the burden of her prayer was for her husband and children. "Thy will
be done," was frequently heard from her lips. "She hath done what she could."
We wish to express our grateful thanks to the many friends and neighbors who so
kindly assisted us in the sickness and death of our beloved wife, daughter and
sister, Mrs. T. B. Potter. And especially to the ladies who so graciously
contributed the lovely flowers, to the quartet for the sweet songs and to the
minister for his comforting and inspiring words.
T. B. Potter,
Mrs. Louisa Biggs,
