Death of Mrs. Maria Boston

Laid to rest at King's Chapel on Dec. 19th, Maria Boston, aged 86 years. Deceased was a loving kind, Christian mother, a member of the Presbyterian Church for sixty years and for the last thirty years her whole study was confined to the Bible, and she could readily turn to any passage contained in the book. Three children survive her, Mrs. French, of Harbor Bridge; Mrs. Cubbison, of Sewickley, and E. Boston, of Highland Avenue.  She had two sons killed in the war. She was borne to the grave by her grandsons as pallbearers.
