Mrs. William F. Neville

Martha, wife of William F. Neville, died at 7:20 Wednesday evening at her home in Estherville, Lower Yoder Township, after a long illness of cancer, aged forty-seven years, six months, and seventeen days. The deceased was born in Lower Yoder Township on January 22, 1859, and was a daughter of Benjamin and Esther Edwards, deceased. About 1879 she was united in marriage to Mr. Neville and for many years they resided in their home at the corner of Carr street and Potts place, removing to the Edwards farm a few years ago. Mrs. Neville is survived by her husband, but no children. She was a sister of Mrs. Ailen Boyle, of the Fifth Ward; Mrs. William A. Palmer, of Morrellville; Mrs. Robert Adams, of Walnut Grove; Misses Hannah and Mary Edwards of Lower Yoder Township; Jonathan, of Morrellville, and Joseph, who is in the West.

The deceased became a member of the Lutheran Church many years ago, but in 1880 transferred her membership to the Franklin-street Methodist congregation. She was a member of the Women's Foreign Missionary Society and also of the Ladies and Pastor's Christian Union of the latter denomination.

The funeral will take place from the Edwards home at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, after which interment will be made in the Edwards farm cemetery in Estherville.
