Hannah Marie Macklem Booth - Born April 14, 1828-Died May 9, 1911

Mrs. Hannah M. Booth, widow of Captain Joseph Booth, now dead forty years died last evening at eight o'clock at her home 218 Market Street, in her eighty-fourth year after a protracted illness lasting about four months.

Mrs. Booth was a pioneer resident of Chester, having come here when but a girl of sixteen years of age. She was born in Newark, Delaware, and her father was the postmaster at that place for a number of years. Her husband was Captain aboard one of the old packets operated on the Chester river by the textile mills of J. P. Crozer and son, and later was familiar as a pilot around this port.

The house in which Mrs. Booth passed away was one in which she had lived continually for fifty years. She was in early years a prominent and consistent member of the old Methodist Church on West Fifth street, now occupied by the Delaware Cigar Factory, before the congregation moved from that edifice and built Madison Street M. E. Church.

She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. David W. Deakyne, wife of the wholesale confectioner of Third and Parker Streets and one son, Joseph Booth, who resided in the Market Street house with his mother and a number of grandchildren.

The funeral will be in charge of H. F. Fairlamb and will be held Saturday afternoon from her late residence. Interment will be made in the Chester Rural Cemetery
