      Mrs. McKinnon

      Mrs. Mary -- familiary known
      as, "Aunt Polly" -- McKinnon
      Died at her home on West Main
      street Monday evening, aged 79
      years. While she had not been
      well for several days prior to her
      death, her illness was not consid-
      ered serious, and her sudden death
      came as a shock to her friends.
      She was a good woman and her
      mission in life having been fulfill-
      ed conscientiously. 'twas but the
      will of Almighty God that she be
      called to rest. But two children,
      of five survive her; Miss Sadie,
      of this city, and Mrs. Lewis, of
      Montezuma, to whom the Gazette
      extends sympathy. Services were
      conducted by Rev. I.B. Day, af-
      ter which the remains were laid
      to rest in the villiage cemetary at
      Montezuma, in the presence of a
      large asemblage of those who were
      her friends during life.
