Mrs Julia Doyle, whose death occurred in Utica, U.S.A. was one of the oldest persons in the State. She would have been 104 years old had she lived until New Years Day. Mrs Doyle was born in the town of Carlow on the 1st day of January 1789. Her father's name was William Whelan. She was one of eight children. She well remembered the rebellion of 1798. One night her mother roused her out of bed and from the window she could see the whole town in flames. When she was 19 she married John Doyle and had 13 children, some of whom came to America. Well the years rolled on , her husband died, and when she was 59 years old she went to her daughter in America. She had three grand daughters and about twenty great-grandchildren in America. Her death was due entirely to old age and had not disease.

The above is a true and accurate transcript of the original document.
