Mrs. Margaret (Preston) Compton, widow of the late Josephus Compton, of Branchville, died on Saturday afternoon at four o'clock at her home in Colesville. Mrs. Compton had for a long time been a sufferer from rheumatism, having for four years been entirely helpless, but death was directly due to heart failure. Her home for many years was in Branchville, until last summer, when she came to Sussex. Last week she removed to Colesville where her son, George Compton, has purchased a store.

Deceased was aged 62 years and is survived by three sons, Hugh and Preston, of New York, and George at home; one daughter, Elizabeth, at home; also by one sister, Elizabeth, wife of Nathan Lewis, in California, and five brothers, Samuel, in Nevada; Albert, of Muscatine, Iowa, Henry, in Illinois; Oliver, in Colorado, and Stanley, of near Sussex.
