May 28, 1936

"Mrs. Alice Alknocker,(headline says ack, text says alknocker)age 61, died at her home in Garrett, Floyd County Ky., 
Saturday night May 23 after an illness of over a year of cancer. She had been treated by the best surgeons obtainable 
and received the best of care, but all this seemed to do no good and the end came peacefully with a bright and glowing 
testimony left behind that she had gone home to glory, and for all her folks to make arrangements to meet her there.

She leaves her husband, two children, Mrs. John Carpenter, Ironton, Ohio and Dessie of West Virginia, 
a father, Judge J. C. C. Johnson, of this city, two sisters, Mrs. Martha Cline and Mrs. Clydia Webb of Ashland, Ky.; 
one brother Howard Johnson of this city and her stepmother Mrs. Johnson, who was the same as a mother 
and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her death, which was evidenced by the large number of relatives 
and friends from her home town that accompanied the body here.

She had requested that her body be brought back here for burial. 

The funeral services were conducted at the home of her father, Judge J. C. C. Johnson of this city, 
Monday afternoon by Rev. Andrew Kiser after which the remains were laid the rest in the cemetery east of the city."
