--About 2 o'clock last Saturday morning Mrs. Mary Montague
, wife of the late Henry Montague
, of this city, fell dead on Broad street, corner of 9th. Mrs. Montague
, because of her indigent circumstances, left home between 1 and 2 o'clock, accompanied by her daughter, to go to the Confederate
clothing depot for work.
On getting to 9th street she suddenly fell, and her child, supposing her mother had fainted, called for help.
Five or six gentlemen repaired to the spot, and soon after obtained a physician, but too late to do any good — the vital spark had fled.
They then obtained a bier, and removed the corpse to its late residence, on Marshall street, near Brook Avenue. Mrs.
M. leaves two helpless children.
We understand that in March, 1862 Mr. Henry Montague
, the husband of the deceased, fell dead near the same spot.
