I am looking for anyone related too:
Mrs. WIlliam Birdwhistell of Anderson County. She was my grandfathers Carrol Smith great aunt.

A day or two before his death, his sister, Mrs. William Birdwhistell, aged 76, of Lawrenceburg, was notified of his condition, and she hastily make preparations to come to his bedside. She was to have left on the evening train, Sunday, but at three o'clock was suddenly stricken with apoplexy and lived only fifteen minutes. Her burial took place at Benton Chruch, at 11 a. m., yesterday, and that of her brother will take place in Spring Hill cemetery, today, at the same hour Mr. Smith, known to his many friends as "Father".
