Iowa Plain Dealer April 2, 1897, FP, C5

As Coroner Simons was starting for church last Sabbath evening, word was brought him that the wife of Robert Williams,, living six miles north-east of Lime Springs was found dead by her husband on his return home, having spent the day at a friends, about two miles away. Dr. Simons notified Deputy Sheriff Miller, and the two started immediately for the scene of the tragedy.
Upon their arrival, the Coroner issued warrants for three jurors, which were at once served and an inquisition held. After the examination of witnesses and letter left by the deceased, the coroner’s jury returned a verdict, as follows: “That we, the undersigned jurors do find that the deceased came to her death by some unknown poison administered by her own hands.”
Mrs. Williams leaves a husband, and three children, who are of tender age. Deceased seemed to have died without a struggle.

Transcriber’s Note: Pleasant Hill Cemetery records indicate this was Mary Jane Williams who was born Aug. 12, 1873 and died March 28, 1897.
