The Eat Liverpool Tribune

Mrs. Alexander Connell, of Sixth street, passed peacefully away, at her home at 11:30 Wednesday night (Jan. 29, 1902) from old age. She was born in Calcutta, March 6, 1815. Her maiden name was Jane Azdell. She was educated in Calcutta schools. At the age of 26 she married to Alex. Connell. Eight children have been born to bless the union: John E. Connell, of Indianola, Ia., and Mrs. S. O. Milligan, of Kingman, Kan., survive.

Mr. and Mrs. Connell moved to East Liverpool about seventeen years ago, and they have since made their home at the corner of Sixth and Jackson streets. Mrs. Connell has lived in Columbiana county all her life and she has many friends who will be pained to hear of her demise.

While still a young girl Mrs. Connell joined the United Presbyterian church.


Husband of the above named lady, died Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 28, 1902), just a few hours following his wife to the better world.

The funeral will be a double one, and both will be laid to rest in the same grave.

Services will be held in the U. P. church Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock. Interment will follow at the Calcutta cemetery.

Mr. Connell was a most respected pioneer resident of this end of Columbiana county. Previous to moving to the city he lived on a farm about tow miles out. He was about 88 years of age, and as a lifelong member of the United Presbyterian church.
