"Sadness again visited this community when the news was given out announcing the death of Mrs. M. W. Alspaugh which occurred at her home on Sixth Street Tuesday morning at one o'clock, after several weeks of suffering. The immediate cause of her death, we understand, was cancer of the stomach. Thus a kind mother, a devoted wife is taken, leaving a vacancy in the home that can never be filled.
Harriet Adelaid Anderson was born at Mechanicsburg, Henry County, Ind., December 15th, 1870, and departed this life November 30, 1920 at her home in Payette, being at the time of her death, 49 years, 11 months and 15 days old. She was united in marriage to Moses William Alspaugh at Cadiz, Henry Co, Ind., Nov. 17, 1887. Eleven children were born to bless this home, two of whom preceded her, in infancy.
Mrs. Alspaugh became converted to the Christian faith when a child and has lived a true Christian life to the last. Besides a husband, she leaves nine children to mourn her loss, and to follow her Christian example; Earl M. Alspaugh of Rupert, Idaho; Mrs. Hava L. Clevenger, Rupert, Idaho; Mrs. Clara V. Harkins, Burley, Idaho; Mrs. Cleo J. Graves, Payette, Idaho; Mrs. Flossie M. Frost, Esbon, Kansas; Bufford M. Alspaugh of Payette; Waunetta C., Mildred B., and Ruby W., who are living at home; besides one sister and two brothers.
Funeral services were held at two o'clock this Thursday afternoon at the Church of God, conducted by Rev. Argyl Houser, Pastor. Interment took place in Riverside Cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. Alspaugh, together with their family, have only been residents of Payette since last spring but during that time they have made a host of friends whom we know will extend to this bereaved family their sincere sympathy in their time of sorrow.(Payette Enterprise, Thursday, December 02, 1920) 

Earl cash-claimed a quarter in 5, 6 South, 48W in 1911.
