Miss Mary, daughter of Nathaniel and Martha McClelland, died at Plymouth, Sunday, Feb. 18th, 1894, aged twenty-eight years. Funeral services were held at Plymouth Monday. The remains arrived here the same evening accompanied by a brother, George B., and Wm. and Oliver McLaren; and were taken to the residence of Miss Nancy McClelland, a sister of the deceased’s father. Nathaniel McClelland was an honored resident of Astoria for years and a large number of relatives and friends gathered Tuesday morning at Miss McClelland’s home, were brief services were conducted by the writer and the remains were interred in the Astoria cemetery. Although entirely unknown to the writer, it is known that the deceased was the possessor of many estimable traits of character and was a devout child of God. Consumption was the disease that stole her fair young life in its morning beauty. A sick mother and sister were unable to attend the services, who with other relatives sorrow Mary’s departure, but not as those who have no hope. —F. B. M.
