Mrs. Z. T. Pridgen died this morning at 3 o'clock at the Pridgen home on
North Oates street, from an attack of stomach trouble that came on Saturday.
Prior to that time she had been in good health and her death was unexpected.
Her husband, Dr. Pridgen, was in Atlanta at the time of her death, having gone
over there Wednesday, but he arrived today.
Mrs. Pridgen was a first cousin of the late General Oates. She was twice married;
first to a Collins, and from that union the following children survive:
W. A. Collins, of Corpus Christi, Tex., ; Mrs. W F Young, of Vienna, Va.;
Mrs. J. L. Sowell, of New Orleans; John Collins, of Westville, Fla.; and Dave
Collins of Macon, Ga.
After the death of Mr. Collins, she was married to Dr. Z. T. Pridgen, and their
children are: Dr. O. G. Pridgen, of Atlanta; Mrs. E. H. Hill, of this city; Lester
Pridgen, of Shrevesport, La.; and Coy Pridgen of Tulsa, Okla.
All of their children have been notified of the death of their mother, and the
funeral will not take place till tomorrow, to give them time to get here.
Mr. Carl Sellers of near Columbia is a brother of the deceased.
Mrs. Pridgen was about 59 years old and was reared in this county, southeast of
town, but she has lived in Dothan with her husband almost since the town started,
and was held in high esteem by all who knew her.
The funeral of Mrs. Z. T. Pridgen will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock at
the residence on North Oates street. The burial will take place at the city cemetery.
