Margaret Ashby (April 9, 1844-Sept 30, 1897)
Died: September 29, in Long Beach, California, Margaret E., wife of Daniel L. Ashby, aged 53 years, 5 months, 18 days.
Mrs. Ashby has long been afflicted with a tumor. She was taken to Los Angeles for treatment some months ago, but the physicians there could offer her no permanent relief and she signified her desire to be brought here to be with and under the care of friends during the remainder of her life. Her husband secured apartment on Pine avenue six weeks ago, where she has been surrounded by friends and seven of her nine children until her death yesterday afternoon.
She leaves a husband, seven sons, Woodson, James, David, Walter, Edward, Junius and Dwight, and two daughters, Mary and Nellie. Woodson and Mary are in the East. She also leaves a mother Mary Brown Ashby over 84 years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Ashby came from Nebraska about three years ago to Pomona and removed from there to Artesia, where they resided about two years before coming to this place.
The funeral exercises will occur at her late residence, on Pine avenue, between Third and Fourth streets, tomorrow at 10 o'clock. Rev. Bell, the Baptist minister of this place, will officiate. Interment will be under the direction of Undertaker Sovereign, at the Signal Hill cemetery.

NB: She was later moved to a family plot in the Artesia Cemetery, Cerritos, California.
