Carruthers, Alford B. (2 APR 1869 - 31 JUL 1920)

Alford Benton Carruthers was born in Harrison Co., Ohio, April 3, 1869, departed this life July 31, 1920, aged 51 years, 3 months and 28 days.

He came to Wisconsin in 1893. He was married to Amelia Looker of Pleasant Ridge, Richland Co., Wis., Nov. 20, 1898, where he resided until 1920.

He leaves a wife, three daughters, and three sons and a host of friends to cherish his memory. Two daughters and two sons have preceded him to welcome him. For the past six years he has been afflicted with pernicious anemia. In March 1920, in hopes of regaining his health, he moved to Withee, Clark County, Wis. But the affliction was so great that neither doctor's aid, faithful nursing or a change of climate could save him. He was a patient sufferer, a kind father, and a loving husband; everything of the comforts and pleasures of others.

Funeral services were held Aug. 3 at 10:30 a.m. in the Pleasant Ridge Church, conducted by the Pastor Rev. Jett, and interment made in the adjoining cemetery.
