William R. Maclay

The Ottawa Free Trader, Ottawa, Illinois, December 15, 1848
Died at the residence of Mr. M. Reynolds, 10 miles below Ottawa, on the 14th inst., William R. Maclay, of Ottawa. Mr. M. died under painful circumstance. He had opened a coal mine near the place where he died and while working in it, about six weeks ago, the earh caved in upon him, and so severely injured his spine that he gradually sunk under it until it terminated finally as above.
Mr. M. was a young man - not 23 years old - whose future looked bright and promising. He had been married about two year. He had resided in this country almost from his youth up and had filled some of its most responsible offices. He was a good citizen, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and highly esteemed by a very large circle of acquaintances.

George Walter Magill
The Ottawa Free Trader, Ottawa, Illinois, February 2, 1849
Died this morning at 8 ½ o'clock, George Walter, eldest and only son of Alexander W. and Lydia R. Magill, aged 1 year and 5 months. This is the second son these afflicted parents have seen struck down by the Death Angel just as the mild and earnest violet eye was beginning to beam with rare intelligence and to smile fair hopes into the answering eyes of these to whom it was singularly dear. The sorrowing parents have the sweet consolation to cheer their bleeding hearts.



Mrs. Lucinda Magill
TAKEN FROM THE HENRY REPUBLICAN, HENRY, IL
September 25, 1873

At Peru, Sept. 19, suddenly, Lucinda, aged 72, wife of Rev. Matthew Magill, late rector of St. John’s Episopal church in this city.

October 2, 1873 - Obituary of Mrs. M. Magill
The funeral of the estimable companion of Rev. M. Magill took place at the family dwelling at Peru, on Sunday afternoon, the 21st ult., Rev. Mr. Steele of Ottawa preaching an impressive discourse from the words “She is not dead, but sleepeth” to a very large concourse of sympathizing friends. The following tribute to her memory, prepared by the bereaved husband, was also read:

“The deceased Lucinda Magill, wife of Rev. M. Magill, was born in the city of Silgo, Ireland, on the 15th of January, 1803, and at her death was 70 years, eight months and seven days old. Her father had been an officer in the British army, in the 14th Royal Irish Dragoon Guard. He was a decidedly pious man, who early taught his children to fear God and keep his commandments. After returning from the army, Mr. Mervyn settled with his family at a seaprot town in the west of Ireland (Wesport); here the acquaintance which issued in marriage, was formed with him who now mourns the loss of one of the very best and most faithful of wives. They were married in the parish church on the 12th day of Januaery, 1827; have lived very happily together for more than 46 years, blessed with a numerous family of twelve children, six sons and six daughters, to mourn the loss of the best of mothers. Her children loved her, and her very memory and the lessons which she taught them at her knees, and in her arms, cannot be forgotten or fail to produce fruit in their lives. She has left to them a rich inheritance fo sound religious instruction as well as an example of the most sterling and consisntent piety.

Mrs. Magill was a devoted christian; hers was no put-on piety - no mere show of religion, she knew whom she had “believed”. Christ was her all and in all, and she faithfully endeavored to follow him from the day that she was first lead to know the grace of God in truth up to her last hour on earth. ......... Her death was sudden and safe; only one moment before she was speaking to her husband, then ceased, gave a sigh - and was gone. “Peace was upon her very countenance in death.” Thus has passed away from the church militant here on earth, to the chruch which is triumphant in heaven, one of the best of women - a true wife, a loving mother, a devoted christian, one whose memore is blessed.

The funeral of Mrs. Russell Mater who was fatally injured when she fell off a cliff at Bailey Falls south of Starved Rock state park Wednesday was held at the Bailey funeral home here at 2:00 o clock Sunday afternoon with burial in Restland cemetery.

A verdict of accidental death was returned by a coroner s jury held here. First to testify was Kay Asmusson, Chicago, who stated that he accompanied Mrs. Frances Novak and daughters Roseana and Valeria, Wanda Maha, Helen Faher and Mrs. Mater and daughter Rea on a picnic to Bailey Falls, leaving Mendota about 4 p.m. Wednesday. He reported that all but Mrs. Mater and daughter left the picnic site to gather firewood and when last seen she was lying on a blanket reading a magazine. When he next saw her she was on a ledge about 12 feet below the falls.

Asmusson enlisted the aid of other picnickers to carry her to his car and take her to St. Mary s hospital, La Salle. He testified that at the hospital, a member of the staff stated there was no doctor available and none could be reached at once. Mrs. Mater was then taken to Harris hospital, Mendota, and given medical attention.

Roseann Novak stated that when she heard Mrs. Mater s daughter cry she went to her and asked where her mother was. The child stated her mother had fallen. Roseann called, but received no answer. By that time the others had returned. Mrs. Novak reported that she called out for Mrs. Mater, who answered her from the spot on the ledge. When asked if she was hur, she replied that she was all right . She remained conscious until placed in the car. Mrs. Novak said, but was unconscious from then until death occurred at 3:20 a.m. Thursday.

Written testimony by Dr. Harris stated he first treated the patient at 10 p.m. for a wound over the right eye and that she died at 3:20 a.m. from a basal skull fracture. Her husband, who was informed by Asmusson, was on a business trip to the southern part of the state at the time. He stated he had talked with her by phone Tuesday night and she appeared to be in good spirits.  As Lorene Keeler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Keeler, she was born Dec. 24, 1906 in Quincy, Mich. Surviving are her husband, a daughter, Rea; her father and three sisters, Arlene, Doris and Elma. She was preceded in death by an infant daughter last year.

Died early on the morning of May 15th, 1874, Julia A. Miner, wife of Timothy H. Miner. Age, 44 years.
August 27, 1874
The following was written on the occasion of the death of Mrs. J. A., May 15th and T. H. Miner, Aug. 5th.
Eva, a little girl, the only member of the family left to survive the voyages of death.
Ere the moon could thrice wax and wane,
Death struck a fatal blow.
He snapped the thread of life in twain,
And laid two victims low.
And now sleep two in quiet rest.
No billows o'er them roll,
To discompose their peaceful breast.
Or move their tranquil soul.
Ten quick revolving years had run
Their transitory rounds.
When Eva, dear, is left alone
On Immanual's ground.
But two short months had passed away,
Had winged their rapid flight;
Father and Mother, silently lay,
In death a solemn sight.
Jesus dispels the deepest gloom
And hearls the broken heart;
He lights the pathway through the tomb,
For Christians to depart.
The light of smiles shall fill again,
The eyes that flow with tears.
And weary hours of woe and pain,
Are signs of happier years.
B. Applebee.
