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."  M. C.

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,
Chas. McCasland.
