Maxwell - Margaret Warbinton

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday, 16 August 1901

Mrs. Maxwell died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John R. Peffley, last Tuesday and was buried on Thursday. She recently underwent an operation for the removal of a cataract from one of her eyes without benefit to her sight, causing her to become very despondent. This with her age and other complications resulted in her death.

She was well known and respected by all our older residents, having spent the greater part of the last ten years as a citizen of Crawfordsville. -s
