Mary Matilda Small (1815–1860)

Since our last communication, it is our painful duty to report the death of the wife of Mr. J. F. [Mary Matilda] Small. Her remains were followed to their final resting place, Woodford Island, by a large number of sorrowing friends; and the utmost sympathy is expressed for the almost disconsolate husband and bereaved family. Her kind and considerate manner, had obtained for her a large number of friends; and in the circle of her acquaintance she was highly esteemed.
