Death Of Grandma Boly

Mrs. Jemimah Boly, one of the aged pioneer settlers of this section, died at her home on the Flat, Sunday morning at 7 o’clock.

She was born in Missouri in 1818, and in company with her husband and children emigrated to the Pacific coast at an early day.

She was the mother of 12 children, only four of whom survive her.

She had been a conscientious member of the Christian church for many years, and the funeral services were conducted by Rev. Benton, pastor of the Christian church here.

She was laid to rest in the Elk Flat cemetery, by the side of her husband who passed away many years ago.
