THE WESTERN STAR, 7 May 1909
Obituary of ANNA TALLEY
Mrs. Jas. Talley Dies in Osawatomie.

Mrs. Anna Talley, wife of James Talley of this city, died on Monday morning of this week in Osawatomie, Kansas, where she was a patient in the state hospital for the insane. For 18 years, Mrs. Talley was a resident of this county and was well and favorably known. She was a native of Illinois. About 20 years ago she moved from Illinois to Nebraska where she lived until 1891, when Mr. and Mrs. Talley moved to Comanche county.

Over a year ago, Mrs. Talley's health began to fail.
She finally became greatly weakened, her physical condition leading to a partial collapse of her mental faculties. A few months ago she was taken to Osawatomie and carefully cared for, but her condition never improved to any great extent. The news of her death brought sadness to many hearts here, yet all recognize that death was, apparently, the only relief for her in her sad condition. Had Mrs. Talley lived she would have been 36 years old on the 17th of June. Mr. Talley and daughter, Miss Ethel, went to Osawatomie on Tuesday. At the time they left they were not sure where Mrs. Talley would be buried, but thought it would probably be either in Ottawa or in Wichita. The surviving husband and children have the sincere sympathy of all.
