She bad been a resident of Madison for about half a century, and was the last member of the family. She had been in good health for one of her advanced age, being in her 82d year, but after the death of her son a few weeks ago she soon began perceptibly to decline. Her death was the result of a paralytic stroke sustained a few days ago. Mrs. Trow was in many respects a remarkable woman, and had many friends. She was one of the oldest members of the Baptist Church in Madison. A more extended notice will be given hereafter.

Mary Page was born at Tettenhall, near Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England, on the second day of December, 1818. When in the 25th year of her age she was united in marriage to William Trow, at Birmingham, England. The wedding took place on the 17th of April, 1843, and on the 9th of May in the same year Mr. and Mrs. Trow emigrated to America. Landing in New York City they went thence to Rochester, N.Y., then to Maumee City, remaining for only a short time, after which they settled in 1844 at Cincinnati. Nine years later, in 1853, they came to Madison. Mr. Trow died July 1st, 1889. On Friday, Feb. 16, 1900, at 55 minutes past 12 o'clock, Mrs. Mary Page Trow's long and beautiful life on earth faded peacefully away into a dreamless slumber, to wake again and live forever in the sweet presence of loved ones gone before. Mrs. Trow united with the Baptist Church in Madison, March 25th, 1855, and until the day of her death was a devoted member and liberal supporter of the same. In the early fifties, when Mr. Trow was a poor man, working as a miller, Mrs. Trow introduced the sewing machine at her home, and not only sewed for others, but taught others to sew, in this way proving herself a true and valuable helpmate. After assisting materially in accumulating a comfortable living, if not a fortune, for herself and family, she wisely took care of it, yet her unselfish and generous nature reached out to share her pleasures with those who had fewer than herself. As a true and faithful friend has she embraced herself in many hearts, and by deeds of kindness known to few beside the recipients, her benevolents hands have made to blossom many of the waste places. The funeral will take place on Monday morning at nine o'clock from the Trow residence on Broadway and First streets.
