Mrs. T. A. Senter and her daughter, Alice, it is said intend to soon move to their old place with Mr. Ab Dulaney.  Mrs. Charlie Senter has returned to live with her father, Mr. T. A. Dulaney.  They have the sympathy of a number of friends here in their bereavement.

Rebecca Woodard Senter was the daughter of William Jesse and Sarah Woodard.  She married Thomas Alfred Senter on January 12, 1873, and they had eight children, including the following who have been featured in previous posts:  Jesse Alvin Senter, Oma and Tommy Senter, and James Robert Senter.

Thomas Alfred Senter, Rebecca's husband, died while serving as Itawamba County's Chancery Clerk in early 1915.  T.A. and Rebecca's son, Charlie, died a few days after his father.  Charlie's death from pneumonia left a young widow, Vona D. "Vonnie" Dulaney, daughter of Thomas Aron Dulaney and Alice Moxley.  Charlie and Vonnie had only been married a short six months.

Becky Senter died in 1934 at the age of 77.  She is buried at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery.
