  • Note: According to an article in The Fulton Gazette, Albert’s best friend was William F. Scott, who died in California in 1923. He had been in Callaway county, Mo., 55 years ago, and came to California from St.Louis to make his home about ten years ago. He was county representative of the Pacific Guano and Fertilizer co. and as such made a large circle of warm friends all over the county, who were attracted to him not only by his friendly good nature, but by his sterling business qualities. In 1921 Mr.Scott married Miss Maraget Guthrie, who survives him and to whom the sympathy of friends and neighbors goes out in her bereavement. Mr. Scott was ill for about seven weeks with heart trouble, but has continued to conduct his business from his home, being up and down, and confined to his bed only a part of this time. He was not thought to be in immediate danger or unlikely to recover, till the last day or two of his life when alarming symptoms and complications arose. The end came suddenly and mercifully about half past eleven o’clock Tuesday night, November 6, when the nurse and Mrs.Scott were with him.
