DEATH OF MISS MARY COVELL

Last of an Old Pioneer Family Passed Away Last Night at Ripe Old Age

Miss Mary N. Covell, last of one of Jefferson county's old pioneer families, passed away last night at 9:05 o'clock at the Drusilla home after a brief illness with pneumonia and the infirmities of advanced age. Funeral services will be held at the home at 1:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon by Dr. Joseph H. Barnard and the burial will be in Springdale cemetery.

The decedent was a daughter of the late Abner and Eliza Covell and was born in Hanover March 2, 1839. She lived all her life in this county and for more than half a century had been a resident of Madison for many years being matron of the children's home here.

Miss Covell was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian church and was a true Christian and noble woman who was respected and venerated by all who knew her. She was the last of her parents' family and of near relatives is survived only by two nieces, Mrs. Sallia Marquis and Miss Birdie Jones, of this city.
