Willan, Alice (1883? - 24 JUN 1899)

(New Lisbon Times)

Alice Willan, eldest daughter of Rev. John Willan of Neillsville (Clark Co., Wis.), aged 16, met with her death in a very distressing manner, as follows: Her father had his Gospel tent at Perkinstown, Taylor Co., and his daughter, the deceased, was taking two ladies and five children out for a drive on Saturday afternoon, June 24th, when coming down a steep hil, a brace of the tongue, which had a flaw in it, broke, allowing the buggy to go on one side, which scared the horses, and they were all thrown out, Alice striking her head on a stump, which caused concussion of the brain, which rendered her entirely unconscious until her death on Sunday morning at 9 o’clock, eighteen hours after the accident. Mrs. Neil Morrison, one of the ladies, had her arm broken, and was also injured internally, and died half an hour before Alice. The other lady and one boy jumped and were not hurt; and the other four children were only slightly injured. The remains of Alice Willan were brought to New Lisbon for interment in the Brewster Cemetery beside the grave of her sister, Jessie, who died here five years ago. The funeral services were a the house of her grandfather, L.W. Willan, and were conducted there and at the grave by Rev. R.L. Bunyard.
