QUERRY, Mary Ann (Florey) Mary A. Queary, widow of John Queary(sic), died at 1:15 Saturday morning (5 Aug 1905) at her home, 550 West King street. Mrs. Queary had been in reasonably good health for one 95 years of age until four months ago when a cancer developed on her tongue and this caused her death. She suffered a great deal, but at the last slept away peacefully. Mrs. Queary was born in Virginia Jan 4, 1810 in Wythe Co, VA. In 1829 she came to Illinois with her parents, who settled near Long Creek, and where she was united in marriage with John Queary (George W.). To this union twelve children were born, four of whom are surviving. They are: W.B. Queary, Arthur; Rose A. Terry, Nebraska; J.A. Queary and Virginia Booker of Decatur; two of the children died in infancy and the remaining six lived to be grown. There are fifty grandchildren, sixty-nine great grandchildren and three great great granchildren, most of them residents of Macon county. The funeral will be held at Long Creek church Sunday afternoon at 3:30. Interment will be in Long Creek cemetery
