Mrs. Mary Boylan, Old Resident, Passes Away
Mrs. Mary Boylan passed away last Monday afternoon after an
illness of several months, although only being confined to her
bed for four days.
Mrs. Boylan was born at Hickory, Ill., and had been a life-long
resident of that community. Mrs. Boylan was born October 1, 1845,
and was 77 years of age when she passed away. On July 14, 1868,
at Racine, Wis., she was united in marriage to E. Boylan, and the
couple made their home on what is known as the Boylan farm, now
occupied by H. H. Grimm, west of Hickory.
Mrs. Boylan was one of the founders of the Hickory Union cemetery
and was a member of the Antioch Woman's club, also of the W. C.
T. U. and the Eastern Star.
She leaves to mourn her loss two children, Mrs. H. H. Grimm, with
whom she had been living, and I. W. Boylan of Chicago, and two
brothers, Chase Webb of Antioch and R. B. Webb of Crystal Falls,
Mich., and two sisters, Mrs. W. H. Hodge of Hickory and Mrs.
Stevens of Virginia of Minn.
The funeral services will be held from the home today (Thursday)
and interment will be in Hickory Union cemetery.

Holsteins. There will also be a quantity of feed placed on sale.
