Boyle County Obituaries


The death of Mrs. Margaret Linney Tuesday last from flux, complicated by heart disease, was accompanied by circumstances of unusual sadness.
Her husband and youngest daughter were visiting in Virginia and both were to ill to travel when apprised of her dangerous condition.
Her son, Dr. Robert Knox, of Richmond, Texas, was also unable to reach her bed-side after receiving the melancholy intelligence of her hopeless illness.
A late telegram from Mr. Linney reports the condition of his daughter "quite hopeful." (Published in the KENTUCKY ADVOCATE, 1 August 1884.)
The obituary lists the name 'Margaret' in error. Mrs. Linney's name was MARTHA.
