Alice Alvira Perkins, daughter of H.H. and Maria Perkins, was born in New London, Huron County, Ohio, April 13, 1852.

When she was about two years old, her parents removed from Ohio to Iowa, locating in the village of New Oregon, New Oregon township, before there was a town of Cresco. Here she spent all her girlhood days.

April 10, 1870, she was married to John W. Booth of the same township. There three sons and one daughter grew to maturity in Howard county. Charles Edward still remains here. John Arthur, Frank Lewis, and Mrs. Hattie Gerlach reside at Clear Lake, Iowa.

Mrs. Booth died June 30, 1911, at Asbury hospital in Minneapolis, Minn., after a very short but severe illness.

Her remains were brought to the residence of I. J. Booth, in Cresco, where a short service was conducted Sunday afternoon by Rev. John Gammons of the M. E. church, assisted by Rev. H.J. Hinman of the Congregational church.

The interment was in Oak Lawn cemetery by the side of her husband who died about eight years ago.

The children of Mrs. Booth were all present at the funeral and wish to thank friends who assisted in any way to lessen the sorrows of the occasion.
