Mary Oaks

OAKS -- At her residence in this city, at 2:45 P. M. of Wednesday, August 25th, 1874, Mrs. Mary Oaks, widow of David Oaks who died about four months ago, aged 76 years.

Her health and spirits since her husband's death had been about as good as for years past, until about two weeks ago, when she fell sick and has ever since been failing, though so slowly as to cause little alarm until Sunday evening last, after which time she was much of the time delirious and unconscious, in which latter condition her life went out. Her son Omar, living in California, has been telegraphed of his mother's death, but is not expected to come soon, as he was recently here settling the matters of his father's estate, and could not now repeat the journey. The funeral is therefore appointed to be to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Presbyterian Church.
