Obituary of Mrs. Lou Anna Amburgey of Clearfield, Kentucky, the widow of Elijah Amburgey, was born in Letcher County, Kentucky. She was married to Elijah Amburgey and this union was blessed with twelve children, eight boys and four girls. Four children, three boys, Alex, William and Rochambeau and one girl Elizabeth and also her husband Elijah Amburgey preceded her in death leaving five boys, John, Thomas, Jasper, Elijah and Robert Amburgey and three girls: Mrs. Mary Messer, Mrs. Annie Scott and Miss Tishie Amburgey to mourn her death.

Mrs. Louanna (Stewart) Amburgey, well known as Aunt Lou Anne, departed this life, 8 February 1921. She was of a noted family and the last one living of ten brothers and sisters. Her grandfather, Alexander Stewart, came from Scotland. To know her was to love her. She would ride many miles to lend a helping hand to the sick and afflicted or to speak words of comfort to someone in distress. Aunt Lou Anne is sadly missed by her relatives and many friends, yet we know our loss is great gain. All who knew her appreciated her noble, pure, Christian life. She was a consistent member of the Regular Baptist Church for the past fifty-two years and no member was more devoted to its teachings. She was baptized into the fellowship of the Dry Fork Church of Christy Creek, May the fourth, 1869, by Elder James Stewart, her brother where she lived a faithful member until her death. She was a constitutional member of the Dry Fork Church and the last one of the constitutional members still living. She died in the same faith at the age of seventy-eight years
