Mrs. James Imlah died last Friday night after an illness of a week, from paralysis. She leaves a husband and four children. The funeral was held from the house Sunday Afternoon and the interment was in Elmwood cemetery.
Margaret Mair McMillian died March 24, 1899 she was the first wife of my GG Uncle James Imlah. She was born April 03, 1860 in Abderdeenshire Scotland. Her death certificate list the cause of death as paralysis, I  believe the paralysis may have been  a result of complications during child birth as Margaret gave birth a week before her death to their fourth child, a little girl named Margaret Mair McMillian Imlah.
