David Hunter McAlpin (1816 - 1901) was my great great grandfather. His February 9, 1901, page 2, New York Times obituary follows.
There is also a New York Tribune obituary at Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers, one of my favorite free newspaper websites. That one is harder to read, as it is blurry, but it gives a tremendous amount of information.
Sunday's Obituary is a daily blogging prompt from GeneaBloggers, the genealogy community’s resource for blogging. It is used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors.
