Mrs. Niles died Tuesday night in Minneapolis.

Miss D. L. Phelps was born in Canada East 1838. The family, twelve sons and daughters, moved with their parents to Wisconsin and then to Lyle and Austin township in 1856. Mrs. Niles is the last of her large family to pass away. Had she lived a few weeks longer she would have been 77 years of age. She taught school at Cedar City previous to her marriage to John B. Niles, which took place at the residence of her sister Mrs. Alfred Cressey on the farm four miles south of Austin. The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. David Tice who built the first M. E. church in Austin. Her husband died years ago. She since lived with her daughter Mrs. Thomas Parker in Minneapolis.

The body was brought here for burial Thursday and services were held Friday afternoon at one o'clock from the Eaton Officer home, 102 Cedar street. Rev. Cressey assisted Dr. Stout who conducted the service.
