Death of Mrs. Philip Chesley
On the morning of the 22nd inst., in
Elmore township, from the result of
appoplexy Mrs. Eudoxia, wife of Philip
Chesley, passed away to her final rest.
Another settler has departed, and many
friends mourn her loss. She was truly
a good woman, and in her last hours
was able to give advice to her friends,
and urge them not to weep for her, for
all was well.
Mother Chesley moved on to the
place where she lived at the time of her
death, twenty years ago, and can justly
be numbered among the old settlers of
this county. In 1866 she had a stroke
of palsy, depriving her entirely of the
use of her left limbs. But with christ-
ian fortitude she bore the affliction to
the day of her death.
Mother Chesley was born in the town
of Norway, New York, in the year
1809.
