The Remains Interred This Afternoon
A Few Facts in the History of an Old Pioneer
          Margaret J. Doble died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. [Barbara E.] Thompson Francis, on Mechanic street, at six o'clock p.m. Saturday, February 15, aged 88 years.  The funeral services were held at the house at 2 p.m. today, Rev. John Reece officiating.  Cummins & Edwards, funeral directors.
          Margaret J. Nichols was born in Nicholas county, Kentucky, January 27, 1802 and came with her parents to Indiana in 1826, settling near Edinburg.  In 1828 she united with the Blue River Baptist church, and was baptized by Rev. Samuel Harding.  She was married to William A. Doble July 1, 1834, and they moved here in 1845, he dying in 1852.  To them were born four children, the first born, a daughter, dying in infancy.  The second daughter, Jennie, married  Dr. W. F. Green, and both are now dead.  The fourth, also a daughter, Melissa, is the wife of  Joe Drake, of Greensburg.
          Two years ago the venerable old lady made all the arrangements for her funeral, having her shroud made and expressing her desire that Rev. John Reece should preach her funeral.  Her last illness was of about six weeks duration, during most of which time she was unconscious.  She was a woman of wonderful energy and, up to the last few years of great strength of mind.
