Sunday's Obituary ~ Maria Adelia McAlpin Pyle


From The New York Times, May 1, 1968, found at Ancestry.com, Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements, 1851-2003 [database online].

According to the obituary, Great Aunt Adelia died on Saturday, April 27, 1968. There is a memorial for her at Find A Grave which indicates she died on April 26, which apparently is the date on her tombstone at San Giovanni Rotondo.

  2. Adelia led quite an interesting life!

    I've got McAlpins from NY in my family tree, and I've also got family from the San Giovanni Rotondo area... and I went to a Montessori school! Nice article.

  3. I think we're related! I was just looking through your McAlpin posts and saw that you are descended from Joseph Stanton Rose - his uncle, William Lucius Rose, was my 5th great-grandfather. I've got quite a bit on the Rose family, let me know if you'd like copies of anything.
