Mrs. Mary Jane Merritt Macfarlan, wife of the late Rev. Daniel T. Macfarlan, died about 9 o'clock on Monday evening, after an illness of more than two years.
She was in the 78th year of her age, having been born in Newburgh, N.Y., Feb. 12, 1829. On Nov. 20, 1950, she was married at the home of her parents, in Newburgh, by Rev. Dr. Morris DeCamp Crawford, of New York, to Mr. Macfarlan, who then lived in New York City.
In 1860 the family removed to Yonkers and took up their residence at 224 Woodworth avenue, where they resided since that date. Immediately after coming to Yonkers the family united with the First Methodist Church, in whose work both Mr. and Mrs. Macfarlan were actively engaged for many years. Mr. Macfarlan died June 9, 1897.
The only surviving member of the family is Miss Helen R.S. Macfarlan.
The funeral will be held at the house, tomorrow afternoon, at 3:30. Rev. Charles L. Walworth, pastor of the First Methodist Church, will officiate. The interment will be in the family plot, Cedar Hill Cemetery, Newburgh.
