Mrs. Frances McBride, widow of Robt. McBride, died at her home in the Strongtown district, No. 9, near Mongaup Center on Thursday, Jan. 17th, aged 83 years and three months. Her end came suddenly and without warning. The cause of death was acute indigestion. She was probably the oldest native resident of the town of Thompson at the time of her death. She was born in the north-western corner of the town Oct. 16, 1823. Her father, Shadrack Schofield, settled at Strongtown the early part of last century. Her mother was a McBride and that family also came there at an early date. The two families were of Scotch extraction. More than sixty years ago she married Robt. McBride and her long life now passed on Schofield and McBride farms in the southeast corner of School District No. 9. Mr. McBride has been deceased some years. She is survived by one son, Wellington McBride, residing in New York city, and two daughters, Mary, wife of George O. Foster, residing in the same city, and Miss Emily McBride residing on the old homestead. Her funeral was held on Sunday afternoon from her late residence, Rev. Lewis F. Piper, of Hurleyville, officiating. Interment in the Smith cemetery by the side of her husband. Mitchell Bros., funeral directors.
--Monticello (NY) Republican Watchman, Friday, January 25, 1907, page 8

Written family history indicates that Frances' mother was Mary Wells Barnard. Further research needed to substantiate her McBride parentage.

Rev. Piper was the brother-in-law of Frances' niece, Fanny Scofield Piper.
