Maria J. Seely


Mrs. M. Seely of Aukum, mother of W.W. Seely of this place, succumbed last Saturday to injuries received a few days previous while harnessing a horse.  Just how the accident happened is not known, as Mrs. Seely was alone at the time, and was never able to give a satisfactory account of it.  The horse was a pet animal, one that she was accustomed to handle, and the supposition is that it reared, causing Mrs. Seely to fall, and from the severe bruises on her body, and injuries to the head and shoulders, it is feared that the buggy might have passed over her.  Besides the son in this city she leaves two others in Amador county to mourn her loss.  Mrs. Maria J. Seely was born at Marion, Grant County, Indiana, and would have been sixty-nine years of age the 23d of October.  She was a woman of noble character, ever ready to assist those less fortunate than herself, and will be sadly missed by the neighborhood in which she had made her home for so many years.  Funeral services were held at the home at Mt. Aukum on Monday, and the interment was at Oleta. – Mt. Democrat.
