Mary F. Mayfield

The Payette Independent
Thursday, November 9, 1899

Mrs. Mary F. Mayfield, who had been sick for a little over two weeks, died at ten minutes before noon today. She leaves a family of ten children and a heart-broken husband, an honest, hard-working man to whom the fates seem most unkind, in that several members of the family have been sick, requiring his presence at home when he would have been at work, and thus has the home been deprived of the sustenance of its natural provider, until true charity can now find a field for operation, if it ever did exist in this community.

Mrs. Mayfield will be buried tomorrow (Friday) at 2 o'clock, a funeral service being held at the house by Rev. Wadsworth of the Methodist church.
