a year ago. Last summer he was quite ill there, but his strong constitution enabled him to rally.
Death came unexpectedly, as gently and as peacefully as a tender benediction, after a long life of active and honored usefulness.
General Maury's wife has been dead a number of years.
He leaves a son, as above, who married Mary daughter of the beloved Dr. James Brown McCaw, of Richmond, and two daughters—one, Mrs. Rose, wife of Robert Pollard, residing in Houston, Texas, and the other, Mrs. Sue Mason, wife of James M. Halsey, in Philadelphia.
These ladies are both distinguished as educators and are well-known contributors to periodical literature.
The former gave essential assistance to her father in his publications.
Among the relatives here are Mrs. Mathew F. Maury, wife of the distinguished naval officer and scientist; Mrs. James R. Werth, and Colonel Richard L. Maury and family.
The death of General Maury removes another of the Virginians of a type of other days.
