Portsmouth, Ohio Obituary – Bertha Williams (Rowland)

June 29th, 2010 No comments

This obituary is of my 2nd great grandmother, Bertha Williams (Rowland), and was featured in the 07/30/1912 edition of The Portsmouth (OH) Daily Times:

Mrs. Wm. Williams

Jackson, July 30 – The home of William Williams of Bennett avenue, was thrown into deep mouring [sic] Sunday morning. Mrs. Williams gave birth to a child Saturday morning, which expired about 4 o’clock in the evening of the same day. Mr. Williams is employed in one of the mines in Kentucky and Mrs. Williams’ illness not appearing dangerous, word was not sent to Mr. Williams until after the death of the child.

The death of the child and complications incident to child birth effected Mrs. Williams’ heart, so that she also passed away about 3 o’clock Sunday morning. Attempts to get Mr. Williams by phone was futile as he had started for home Sunday morning. He failed to make connections and did not arrive until midnight Sunday night. He had not learned of his wife’s death until he came home.

Mrs. Williams, who was formerly Miss Bertha Rowland, was about 30 years of age. She was a sister of Mr. Joseph Rowland, proprietor of the Gem theatre. A sister resides in Portsmouth, two brothers in Newport, Ky, John and George, and Ed Rowland, of Covington, Ky. Her parents died several years ago.

Left to survive are the husband and three children, Evalyn, Donald and Rowland.

Many thanks to bobbie1401 on for sending the obituary link.
