of Dr. A. C. Woodley
Dr. Alvin C. Woodley, of
Bingamton, N.Y.. died in the city hospital on Friday, 21 Sep 1928
after an illness of about two years.
Deceased was born in
Townsend and was a son of the late George Woodley and Marletta
Horne. Near relatives who survive are his sisters, Mrs. S. C.
Kitchen of Bloomsburg and Mrs. Mattie Horning of Hamilton, and one
son, James K. Woodley of Richmond, Va.
The remains were brought
here on the M.C.R. Sunday afternoon. A short service was held in the
chapel at Greenwood cemetery conducted by Dr. J. B. Moore, assisted
by Rev. Thos. Frears, B.A.
Many friends of the deceased
met the train and followed the cortege to the grave. Another of
which may be termed a younger generation of the pioneers of Norfolk
has passed away. They are getting fewer.
The pallbearers were six
cousins of the deceased.
Many relatives and friends
extend to the bereaved ones most sincere sympathy and especially to
the son who is really a stranger here. His father was one of many
Norfolk boys who went out into the world and made good.
