Five years ago last January, Miss Alger suffered a partial stroke and paralysis from which she never fully recovered. This from time to time was followed by slight strokes which so enfeebled the once strong mind and body that the past year found her in a helpless condition. She was the second daughter of John D. and Demmis Stevens Alger and is survived by 2 sisters, Sarah M. Alger and Addie M. McNinch, and 1 brother, Ashabel S. Alger. The funeral was held from her late residence on the Tuesday following at 2 o'clock and was largely attended. Mr. Clara Morgan of the Universalist Church officiating. The paying of last respects by family and friends were much in evidence by the many beautiful flowers which were present. Those who bore the remains to their last resting place were relatives of the deceased, T.H. McNinch, James Griffin, R.W. Cole, E.A. Cole, S.L. McNinch and J.S. Alger. She was buried in the Alger Cemetery, Conesus March 15th.
