The Daily Northwestern (Oshkosh, WI) Wed 28 Oct 1903, page 3:
Mrs. Mary H. Ball, widow of the late J. M. Ball, died this morning at an early hour at the home of Mrs. E. W. Viall, 147 Algoma street. Mrs. Viall was with Mrs. Ball at twelve o'clock Tuesday night and she appeared to be as well as usual with the exception that she had been suffering with neuralgia of the head. This morning when Mrs. Viall again visited the bed chamber, she was shocked to find Mrs. Ball dead. It is believed the neuralgia affected her heart, causing her death quietly and painlessly.
Deceased was seventy years of age. Her home for the past forty years had been principally in Oshkosh and for about eleven years past she had lived at the Viall residence. Her husband, who was a pioneer resident and who had been a lumberman in the early days, died here about twelve years ago. He was the second husband of the deceased, her first husband, having been William J. Palmer of this city. Those surviving are a brother, Eugene A. Bliss of Cincinnati, who is expected to reach here tomorrow, and a cousin, Miss Mary Bliss of this city. Funeral arrangements will not be definitely settled until Mr. Bliss arrives and they will be announced later. The announcement of Mrs. Ball's sudden death will be a shock to her many friends. She was highly esteemed.
