The interment was at Oakland cemetery. The decedent was born in Princeton July 12, 1861. Most of her childhood was spent in Philadelphia, Pa., but she returned to Princeton in 1876, where three years later she was married to Evan Wilson. Two children were born of this union, Evan and Myrtle. The latter was her mother's constant companion during her long illness. On the 4th of June 1903, she was married to Edward Miles. Most of the time since then was spent on the farm north of town. About four months ago they moved to their present home. Besides her husband and children she leaves her parents and one brother to mourn her loss.
