On Tuesday, after a long illness, Mrs. Grace Bagnall passed to her eternal rest and the remains were taken to southern California by her daughter, Mrs. H. W. Bessac, for internment by the side of her husband who died seventeen years ago.
Mrs. Grace Bagnall was born in Devonshire, England, on June 7, 1826, and was therefore 83 years, 3 months, and 7 days of age at the time of her death. When but a young girl her parents emigrated to Prince Edward Island, where her childhood and early womanhood was passed. Here she met and married William W. Bagnall on November 3, 1852. Soon after their marriage the couple came to the United States, locating in Ohio. Here the two eldest children were born. In time the family moved to Wisconsin, locating in Iowa County, near Mazomania, where they lived until 1883, when a move was made to Western Washington, and 1886 they came to California and here the father passed away.
Mrs. Bagnall was a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, having joined the church when a young girl, and had been connected with it since about seventy years. She was a loving wife and a devoted mother, as well as a true friend, and she will be greatly missed in these several circles.
She was the mother of three children, two of whom are still living, Mrs. H. W. Bessac of Dixon, and S. B. Bagnall, of Oxnard, Ventura County, California.
Mrs. Bagnall was the daughter of George and Sarah Beer, and was the last of a family of ten children to pass away."
