Description
Full Text
A Mother in Israel Called Home.
During the early hours of Sunday morning the spirit of Mrs. Margaret McConnell peacefully took its flight after a protracted illness. For a number of years Mrs. McConnell has been residing at the home of her daughter, Mrs. G. A. Black, and when the family removed to Acton she accompanied them here. About two years ago, when the family were on Silver Spring Farm, the old lady met with a mishap which resulted in the fracture of her thigh, since which time she has been an invalid and gradually failing. Through all her illness she was most patient and lovable. Mrs. McConnell's maiden name was Margaret Godfrey. Her father fought in the war of 1812 and her mother's family were U. E. Loyalists. She was born at St. Catharines, February 2nd, 1820, and on April 6th, 1841, married Rev. Shuck McConnell, one of the pioneer Baptist ministers Elgin County. His first charge was in St. Thomas. They afterward settled near Aylmer, where the greater part of their lives was spent. Rev. Mr. McConnell died in August, 1889. The interment took place at Aylmer on Tuesday. Two daughters survive, Mrs. G. A. Black, Acton, and Mrs. William Garside, Toronto.
