      Death of Mrs. McKay
      Mrs. Sarah C. McKay, wife of A. J. McKay, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Leonard Herbert, on Monmouth boulevard at 2:35 o'clock this morning (July 21). They were present when she passed away, the members of the family and the physician, Dr. Farnsworth. Mrs. McKay's illness dates back a number of years. Since three years ago she has been an invalid and for two years has been unable to walk, owing to creeping paralysis. Periodically she has had paralytic strokes. Tuesday afternoon she sustained a severe stroke, and sank from that time until her death. She was conscious to the last. During her illness she has had affectionate care of her daughter, Mrs. Herbert and husband and of her own husband, Mr. McKay.
      Mrs. McKay's maiden name was Sarah C. Chapin. She was born in Warsaw, N.Y. and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Chapin. In her father's family were four daughters and one son, now all deceased. Her brother was one of the first settlers and leading citizen of Fargo, N.D. When Mrs. McKay was quite young the family moved to Carroll, N.Y. She received her education in the district schools and in a large school at Austinburg, Ohio. She then taught school successfully. Her home was in Carroll until after her marriage to Mr. McKay June 10, 1849. They moved to Trumubil (sic) county, Ohio. She kept up her teaching for a while after her marriage. Her husband followed farming. In 1857 they moved to River Falls, Wis., where Mr. McKay continued farming. That was Mrs. McKay's home until two years ago, when she came to Galesburg, where she could have the personal attention of her daughter. Mr. McKay sold out his property in Wisconsin and joined her here this spring.
      Mrs.McKay was a sincere Christian and joined the Congregational church in 1857. She belonged to the church of that denomination in River Falls. She is spoken of as a lady of many excellent qualities and as having manifested patience during her long and trying illness.
      The survivors are the husband and three children, Florus C. McKay of Des Moine, Mrs. Herbert of this city and Mrs. F. W. Dodge of Buffalo, N.D. The funeral services will be held at the Herbert residence at 9 o'clock to-morrow morning. Rev. T. W. McVety will officiate. The burial will be in Linwood. Galesberg (Ill.)
