Cilley, in this city, Sunday, Jan. 17th, at 3 p.m. The remains were taken to Muscatine Monday evening for interment, Mrs. Cilley and her sister, Mrs. Vannatta, of Nortonville, Kansas, attending.

Mrs. McGrew was born in Kentucky, in 181?, and was past 8? years at the time of her demise. Her parents moved to Indiana when she was a child and she grew up in the Hoosier State. Her maiden name was Anne Hifield. In 1836 she came to Iowa, settling in Muscatine county where she lived continuously until last July, when she came to this city to visit her daughter, Mrs. Cilley, and had since resided here, her health having been very poor, so that she was unable to return to her home.
She was the mother of six children, three of whom survive her. They are H. McGrew, of Muscatine, Mrs. Viola Vannatta, of Nortonville, Kansas, and Mrs. C.W. Cilley, of this city. -- What Cheer Patriot
