Abraham Lincoln Dulaney, [??] prominent resident of Perry [??] died
Saturday evening, August [??] 8:10 o'clock at his home [??] Morris
following a two week's [??] due to hardening of the arteries [??]
Dulaney was born December 22, 1849, a son of the late Abraham Dulaney
and Susanna Lemley Dulaney, [??] was a lifelong resident of Perry
township. He taught school in Greene county for a period of ten years and
was at one time postmaster at Mt. Morris. Mr. Dulaney followed farming and
stock raising the greater part of his life, but in late years he had given
most of his attention to dealing in coal, oil and gas territory, and wool.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and of the I. O. O. F.
lodge. Besides his wife, Rebecca Jane Headlee Dulaney, he leaves [sic]
three sons and three daughters, namely: Ira B. Dulaney, of Philadelphia;
Byron Dulaney and Russell Dulaney, at home; Mrs. Edna Barnhart, of Martins
Ferry, O.; Mrs. Kelsey Baer, of Washington, Pa., and Miss Dora
home. He also leaves one brother, Eli Dulaney, of St. Leo, W. Va.
Funeral services were held at the Dulaney home Tuesday afternoon at 1:30
o'clock, conducted by Rev. Harry Headley.
Interment was in the Mt. Morris cemetery.
The A. L. Dulaney obit was missing a good bit of information,
some of which I can fill in. Roland Dulany Furlong lists him as Abraham
Lincoln Dulany, born 22 December 1849, died 1924. I wonder if Abraham
Lincoln was actually prominent enough in 1849 to have children named for
him? A. L. may have adopted this middle name later in life. His wife was
Rebecca Jane Headlee, born 08 August 1853, died 26 January 1943. Her brother
was David Lincoln Headlee, but I don't have her parents' names.
Their burials in Cedar Hill Cemetery are listed in volume 12 of Dorothy
Hennen's Cemetery Records of Greene County.
Abraham Dulany's listing in the 1850 Census may cast doubt on A. L.'s
actual birth date; he was listed as 5 months old, and the census was
taken on 18 October 1850. This doesn't add up to a December 1849 birth
date, but census records can be anything but accurate. If a neighbor
provided the information, birth dates could have been estimated. such is
Addie Marie Johnson Dulaney, 72, of Rt. 1, Mt. Morris, Pa., died
Thursday, Jan. 4, 1979, at West Virginia University Hospital.

One infant brother, Paul, preceded her in death.
Written in loving remembrance of our dear brother and friend Alfred
Dulaney, who departed this life July 7, 1912, aged 37 years.
A sketch of the accident has been given as to how this young man met his
death. He leaves to mourn his death, a father, mother, one sister,
two brothers and one foster sister. He was converted at Claughton
Chapel during a revival meeting in the year 1895. For a short time he
had been employed at the Hoy livery barn at Waynesburg. As he passed by
home on Friday he left his suit case, expecting to be at home the next
week to help his father harvest. Little did they think then, that would
be the last time they would see his smiling face. Alfred was of a kind and
genial disposition, always had a pleasant smile and kind word for
everybody, ready and willing to lend a helping hand to any one that
needed his help. The loved one will not only be missed by his near
relatives but his friends and associates also, for he was enrolled as
a member of the Sunday School at Valley Chapel, and unless absent
from home, he was present at Sunday school and other church services.
Oh how sad it is for the family when they look around the home and see
so many things he has so willingly done, and to know Alfred has been so
suddenly called away. But we must submit to God's will, for he knows best
and he doeth all things well. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Hudson
of Kirby, Pa., and Rev. Robertson of New Cumberland, W. Va.
Interment in Claughton cemetery, followed by a large crowd of sorrowing
relatives and friends to pay their last respects to their loved one.

And though his body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
We are just a pair of helping hands!!
