Mrs. Margaret Cheever
Margaret Celestia Chapin was born in Hillsdale County, June 23, 1848, and died at her home in North Adams, May 30, 1916.
She was married to George W. Cheever Oct. 12, 1868 and to this union were born five children three of whom survive her; Edna Hewitt of North Adams; Clara C. Ellis of South Pascagoula, Miss. and George Cheever of Detroit. One died a number of years ago while Edith preceded her mother to her home above by a few months. She was baptized by Rev A.A. Myres and united with the Free Will Baptist Church of Osseo in early life, where she remained a member until she moved to North Adams in 1893 when she transferred her membership to the Baptist Church of this Village.
Her whole life was spent in this county. She was a faithful wife and mother and was greatly respected by those who knew her because of her willingness to lend a helping hand when needed.
Before her health became impaired, she was very active in church work, but for some years back was compelled to give up the work which she loved so well.
Funeral services were held at the Baptist church on Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. F.L. Niles officiating. The burial was at Osseo.
