Margaret Matilda (Kimbel, McClish) Boyer
(Source: newspaper obituary from the period)
Margaret Matilda Boyer nee Kimbal was born December 24, 1845. She was
united in marriage to Alexander McClish Feb. 22, 1866. To this union
three children were born, two of whom survive. Her first husband died in
September 1879. She was united in marriage a second time to Josiah Boyer
Dec. 27, 1881. About one year ago she was taken sick with that dreaded
disease, cancer, and for the last few months she was an intense
sufferer, but she bore her suffering with Christian patience. She was
perfectly resigned to her Master's will. On the 18th of February 1901,
God in his infinite mercy relieveed her from her bodily suffering, aged
55 years, 1 month and 28 days. She leaves a sorrowing husband, two
children, three grandchildren, an aged father, two sisters, two brothers
and many relatives and friends to mourn her departure. Their loss, we
trust, is her eternal gain. She made a profession of religion during the
pastorate of Rev. F. F. Christine and united with the Reformed church by
the solumn rite of confirmation of which church she remained a faithful
member until death.
Funeral services were held on Wednesday at the Reformed church in
Hudson, conducted by her pastor, Rev. J.A. Seitz, assisted by Rev.
George Frederick. Interment at Circle Hill cemetery. Peace to her ashes.
