From the Gridley Light, November 30, 1911
The citizens of Gridley and vicinity were grieved to learn early Saturday of the death of Mrs. W. H. Hughes, which occurred at the family home south of town that morning, after a year's illness with lung trouble. She had been suffering from the trouble for the past year and gradually growing weaker for the past few months so that her death was not unexpected.
Margaret Davis was born near Dodgeville, Iowa county, Wisconsin, November 22, 1856, and died at her home south of Gridley, Ks., October 28, 1911, at the age of fiftyfour years, eleven months and six days. She grew to young womanhood in Wisconsin and came with her parents to Kansas in the year 1872, when her mother homesteaded the place which was her last home in this life. She was united in marriage to W. H. Hughes april 19, 1881, and to this union four children were born, Albert, Grace, Mark and Mary, the latter with her father to live to mourn her loss, as also does W. C. Hughes, of Bisbee, Ariz. a son by her former husband. She had been a member of the Methodist church of this place for a number of years and was a good, consciencious Christian, patient in her suffering and a worthy example of the faith.
She was taken sick about a year ago and went to Bisbee, Arizona, hoping that the change of climate would be beneficial, and apparently was some better, but decided to come home and arrive here about the last of March in very poor health and from that time to the death she continued to grow weaker.
The Light joins the many friends in expressions of sympathy for the grief stricken husband and daughter and son.
