Death's Doings. Since our last issue Death has visited our town and vicinity, and three homes have been made desolate and three worthy pioneer mothers called upon to lay down life's cares and burdens, and journey to that bourne from whence no traveler returns.
On last Saturday Mrs. Elizabeth McCulla, wife of James McCulla, deceased, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. Thomas Low, at the age of 70 years. The funeral ceremonies took place at the Methodist Church, Sunday morning at half-past ten o'clock, Rev. King delivering the funeral discourse. The burial took place at the Old Grave Yard, near town.
Scarcely had the news of the death of Mrs. McCulla been circulated, when the death of another aged lady, Mrs. Jennie E. Day, was announced, which occurred at half-past ten o'clock Saturday morning, at the residence of Mr. W. H. Allen. Mrs. Day was the wife of Uncle Billy Day, who died some two years ago and who was well known to all our citizens. The remains were taken to the family burial ground, west of town, for interment, Monday.
Sunday morning the wife of Mr. Peter Weyerbacher, living a few miles east of Boonville, died at the age of 76 years, and was buried Monday afternoon. It will be remembered that The Enquirer, a few weeks since, made mention of the age of Mr. Weyerbacher, and of the number of years (fifty-seven) he and his wife had been married and had spent happily together. The old gentleman at that writing expressed a hope and belief that he would yet enjoy many years of connubial life, but a cloud has crossed the old man's happy sky, and he has been left to wander through this pilgrimage without the love and comfort of his aged wife.
The wife of Mr. Aaron Wilson, living a few miles north of town, died Wednesday and was buried Thursday.


Last Wednesday the seven-year-old son of Mr. William Pelzer, living a few miles west of town, met with a singular accident. While standing near a wagon which was being loaded with logs, a large one, three feet thick and fourteen feet in length was started by the jar and whilst attempting to run out of the way he fell down and the log passed over his entire body, but not injuring him in the least. That angel must have been there.

Death of Wm S. Graham. From a Red Wing (Minnesota) paper we glean the following: The death of William Smith Graham, son of Hon. Chris. Graham, of this city, occurred at the Asylum in Rochester last Sunday evening, Dec. 21st, after a brief illness. Mr. Graham was born in Boonville, Warrick County, Indiana, April 6th, 1845, but moved with his parents to Red Wing in 1854. He lived, while a boy, for about three years in Henderson, Minnesota, coming back to Red Wing in 1861, where he has lived nearly all the time except during the past five years, when he was employed as the teller in Dawson's Bank at St. Paul. He was a graduate of the Commercial College at St. Paul, and was employed for a time in the First National Bank of this city. He was an excellent accountant, a quick judge of money, correct and methodical, in his accounts, and took a great pride in the path of life he had chosen.
In August last Mr. Graham was suddenly taken insane, his mind running largely to money matters and the derangement is generally attributed to overwork and the neglect of sufficient outdoor exercise. He was brought to his father's house, but his insanity took such a violent form that it became necessary to take him to the insane asylum in Rochester. For a time he seemed to be getting better, and the authorities of the Asylum thought he was cured, but a relapse occurred, and with the exception of a few lucid intervals, his mind wandered to the day of his death.
Will Graham as he is best known, was of a genial disposition, making friends with all with whom he was brought in contact, and his sudden death will be mourned by everyone.
His body was brought from Rochester on Tuesday, and yesterday (Wednesday) he was buried from the Episcopal church.

Weyerbacher, Margaret
August 6, 1881 Boonville Enquirer

Once more the grim Angel of Death has entered this community and cast its gloomy shadow across the threshold of another once happy household. The victim of the fell destroyer this time was Margaret, wife of Mr. Jacob Weyerbacher, who died Saturday morning, the 30th, at two o'clock. Mrs. W. had been an invalid during the spring and summer, and her death was no sudden shock or surprise to the family and friends, her demise having been daily expected. During the past winter a severe cold was contracted by the deceased, which settled on her lungs and resulted in consumption. The funeral took place from the family residence on Sunday at one o'clock, p.m., the remains being taken to St. Peter's Cemetery for burial. Mrs. Weyerbacher was forty five years of age, and had lived a life of usefulness to herself, family and friends. Ever of a cheerful nature she contributed much to the pleasure and happiness of those around her and besides the immediate family, leaves behind her numerous friends and relatives who will deeply mourn her death. The family has the sympathy of the community.
