Mrs. P. M. Boyles, one of the pioneer settlers of Madison county, died suddenly yesterday morning at Prole, Warren county, where she had gone for a few days visit. She had been making her home with her daughter, Mrs. A. L. Tullis at Des Moines. The remains were brought here for burial and the services held this afternoon from the Tullis residence in the east part of town. Mrs. Boyles was born in Crawford county, Illinois, and with her husband Phillip M. Boyles, moved from Andrew county, Missouri to Union township, this county in 1846, when there were less than a dozen families living within the boundries of Madison county.

Lydia Allison Boyles, wife of the late Phillip Boyles, died at Prole on Tuesday this week while making a visit among friends and relatives, after a sickness of only three days.
At the time of her death Mrs. Boyles was among the oldest of the early settlers of this county. She came here in 1846 and together with her husband settled on a farm one and one-half miles northeast of Winterset, where they lived continuously for almost fifty years. She was born in Crawford county, Illinois in 1821 consequently was 83 years old. She was married to Phillip Boyles, February 22d, 1845 and to them were born seven children as follows: Martin, Milton, Maria, now Mrs. A. L. Tullis; Myra, Mary, now Mrs. Seevers; Marilla, now Mrs. Bare; and Maloy, all of whom are living.
The remains were brought to this city this morning and the funeral occurred this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. Thus another of the pioneers of Madison county passes away. There are few of them left and it will be but a short time until all of those who endured the hardships of a pioneer life and laid the foundation for this happy and prosperous community will be gone.
