Obituary:

From the Utica Sentinel (Macomb County, Michigan), Sept. 24, 1898; pg. 1 -

"The deceased, Mrs. Margaret Mason, was born in Nairn, Red Knock Shire, Scotland, in 1806 and was 92 years old the first of August.

She came to this country in 1831, bringing her youngest brother with her, who was then fifteen years of age. Two years later she was married to William Mason and came to Buffalo, New York. After two or three years she moved to Canada and was there during the patriot war. When her oldest son was three days old she fled to the United States.

In 1850, Mr. Mason went to California, where he remained for three years. During his absence, Mrs. Mason lived at Utica with her large family, caring well for the affairs of her household.

After Mr. Mason returned, they moved to their present home, where they have lived for 44 years.

Eight children were born to Mrs. Mason, four of whom survive her, two sons and two daughters.

She was an earnest, conscientious, exemplary christian, a kind and loving mother and good neighbor, with charity for all and never spoke ill of any one. Her noble christian example will ever live in the hearts of all who knew her."
