Death 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.
