In 1900, Alonzo was working as a steward in a hotel, then returned to farming by 1910.  Alonzo died on February 22, 1926 in Eaton.  Addie lived on her own at the farm until her death of myocarditis on March 23, 1934 at the age of 80.  The couple was buried in the Eaton Cemetery, New Hampshire.  We are unaware of any children.  Maybe someday we’ll know more about Addie’s life — as of today our only sources are census, marriage, death records and a picture of her gravestone.
