    [Died, Sunday, May 6, at 5 p.m., in Chicago, Mrs. Mary L. Merryman, aged 63 years. The news of Mrs. Merryman's death was received in this city last evening with surprise and sadness. She left for Chicago about a month ago and during her stay underwent a surgical operation. She had been in delicate health for some time and her constitution was not of sufficient vigor to stand the strain. Her sister, Mrs. Charles Ridgely, was summoned to her bedside and she sank until death came last evening. The name of Mrs. Merryman is a familiar one to Springfield people. She was the daughter of James W. Barret, who came to this city from Kentucky at an early date and the widow of the late Captain J. H. Merryman, who was for a long time connected with the Life Saving service on the coat of New Jersey. In 1852 she was married to William O. Fondey, who was an influential merchant in this city. A number of years later her husband died and she was married to Captain Merryman, about eight years ago. The latter died a short time afterward and Mrs. Merryman made her home with her sister, Mrs. Charles Ridgely on South Fourth street. She was recognized by all who knew her as a true Christian and a faithful friend. She had a large circle of friends in this city and where ever she was known she was loved and respected. She is survived by three brothers, W. T. Barret of Pekin, James T. Barret of Kentucky, and Richard Barret of Kansas City, Mo., and one sister, Mrs. Charles Ridgely of this city. The remains will be brought to this city for interment.]
