After a lingering illness, Mrs. Margaret A. Schnebly died last Saturday afternoon [February 9, 1907] at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. B. Davidson, at an advanced age. She had been an invalid for years and much of the time was a great sufferer.
Mrs. Schnebly was one of the pioneer women of the valley and was widely known and much esteemed. She was a woman of strong personality and left an impression of her characteristics upon the community, with a strong influence for good. Besides her daughter, she leaves two sons, P. H. and C. P. Schnebly, and a number of other relatives. The funeral, which took place at her late home Monday afternoon, was largely attended, the services being conducted by Rev. A. K. Smith of the Episcopal Church.
