Alice Remembers

Alice and Daughter Mabel

Alice turns 100
     Your Grandma Alice McGrath died at 6 P.M., May 25, 1975. I should say, ‘God called her home.’ The
services were held at 2 P.M., May 28, 1975, in Florahome, Florida. She will be happy over there as she will
be with her little boys. One died at age 2. One month later the other went. He was 5. Her husband, your
William Pedrick Asay, passed away in the fall of 1898.
     In the spring of 1899, on Jan. 3, my little brother, Mama’s youngest child, Charles Alford, died. He was
born 1st July 1897, was only 2 years old. It sure hurt me as I was a little girl, 12, and tended him so much. He
had measles them took pneumonia. Mama’s little 4 year old boy also had measles and had an abscess on
the lungs, so he died on 24 Feb 1899. His name was James Hendricks. We called him Jimmy, after his
William Asay died, Alice married Alonzo McGrath. He died several years ago. Grandma has 5
sisters and 2 brothers waiting over there and 6 little babies who died which are her mother’s babies.
Grandma Hendricks had 14 children, but buried 6 of them [as] babies. Grandma Alice loved her daddy,
James Hendricks, so will be happy there with him and her mother, Lucy Susan Stinson Hendricks.
Grandma Alice was born Aug. 2, 1870, in Kentucky.
