"MRS. BONNELL DEAD.
Passed Away at Oxford, Ga. -- Remains Arrive Here Today.

Mrs. Mary Ann Bonnell, aged 77 years, widow of Dr. John M. Bonnell, who for many years was the president of Wesleyan Female college, passed away yesterday morning at about 6 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Stone, in Oxford, Ga. She had been in declining health for the past several years and her death was not entirely unexpected.

Mrs. Bonnell was a former resident of Macon, but moved to Oxford when her husband, who was then president of Wesleyan, died, and has since lived there with her daughter.

The deceased is survived by two sons and one daughter -- Professor W. B. Bonnell of Wesleyan, Dr. John F. Bonnell of Emory college and Mrs. Harry M. Stone of Oxford.

The remains will arrive here today at 1:10 p.m. and the funeral services will be held at Rose Hill cemetery by Rev. J. S. Scruggs of the Vineville Methodist church.

The pall-bearers will be Messrs. DuPont Guerry, R. F. Burden, C. T. King, W. G. Solomon, J. J. Cobb and Isaac Hardeman."
