Obituary for Lenna Watkins
Rogers Democrat, April 25, 1912
Benton County, Arkansas

WATKINS, Lenna (from Colville) - The community was saddened Friday morning by the announcement of the Lenna, the 17 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Watkins. Miss Lenna was taken with typhoid fever some six weeks ago and grew rapidly worse until her death. It seemed impossible that one so young should die. Lenna was well liked by all who knew her and her death cast a shadow over the entire community. Funeral services were held at the home of Rev. Johnson. The remains were laid to rest in the Hart Cemetery and there she sleeps, as pure as the flowers which will bloom above her grave.
