Alberta Elizabeth "Beth" Briles Gentry

While checking death notices around the county I came upon one with direct ties to Briles in Randolph County, specifically the granddaughter of John & Elizabeth Welborn Briles. Alberta "Beth" Briles Gentry, daughter of John Charles & Dessie Duvall Briles passed away January 24th of this year in Ottawa, Kansas. Beth, her parents, and husband are buried at Highand Cemetery in Ottawa, KS. We have updated Dessie's information and added the cemetery. We apologize for missing this earlier. Below is Beth's death notice.
