Word received here today by Mrs. Ortha Alison of 119 Belmont avenue informed her of the death of her sister, Mrs. Matilda Cochran, which occurred suddenly November 30, at Wichita, Kansas. Heart trouble is believed to have been the cause of death. She was a daughter of the late William and Mary Jane Hays of the Plum Run district, Chartiers township, and was well known here.

She leaves three sisters, all of whom reside in Canonsburg. They are Mrs. Odtha (sic) Alison, Mrs. Anna McCahon and Miss Isabella Hays. Two brothers, George S. Hays, Okache, Akla. (sic) and Frank Hays, Colorado Springs, Colorado, also survive. She also leaves a step-daughter.
