1905 (Nov 9, Thursday): DD's fourth wife, Villa, dies in Davenport (Gielow, 1981, p. 99; Rehm, 1980, p. 271); according to the Davenport Democrat & Leader (p. 8): MRS. DR. PALMER DIES SUDDENLY Took Overdose of Morphine at Early Hour This Morning Her Death Followed at 8:30 O’Clock at the Family Residence, 1518 Rock Island Street Mrs. Alvilla Palmer, wife of Dr. D.D. Palmer, the well known president of the Palmer Infirmary and School of Chiropractic, died suddenly this morning at 8:30 o’clock at the family home, 1518 Rock Island street. A sad it was occasioned by se of morphine, she swallowing a full grain of the deadly drug and her death following shortly thereafter. Mrs. Palmer has been in poor health for many years, during a large portion of which she was might be called an invalid. She not only worried over her ills but suffered greatly by reason thereof. Some years ago she figured in a runaway accident while driving a team of ponies, at which time she suffered a fracture of the spine. The maiden name of the deceased was Alvilla Thomas. She was a great niece of General George Thomas, one of the brave leaders in the Revolutionary war, and this spirit of patriotism which took such an early root in the family, was inherited by the deceased. She was married to Dr. Palmer in Rock Island 18 years ago and possessed a large circle of acquaintances in the Tri-Cities who will be grieved to learn of her death. Coroner Lambach was notified of Mrs. Palmer’s sudden death and decided to hold an inquest late this afternoon. Mrs. Palmer was an active member of the Women’s Relief Corps and the funeral will be held under their auspices from the late home on Rock Island street at 9 o’clock Saturday morning. All members of the W.R.C. order in the Tri-Cities are cordially invited to attend. Interment will take place at Riverside cemetery in Moline, where a father, mother and brother lie buried in the family plot.
