Mrs. Agnes Eustace dies At Red Bank

She Had Been Twice Married and Her Second Husband Had Also Been Married Before

Mrs. Agnes Eustace of Oakland street died on Tuesday of pneumonia. She had been confined to her bed for six weeks with the disease which caused her death. The funeral will be held at two o'clock at the house on Friday. Rev E. C. Hancock, pastor of the First Methodist church, will preach the sermon and the interment will be in Fair View cemetery.

Mrs. Eustace was born in Scotland. She came to this country at the age of 25 years. She was twice married. Her first husband was Joseph Kelly and by him she had two children, both of whom are living. They are Mrs. Robert Norman of Red Bank and James Kelly of Albany. Mrs. Eustace's second husband was William Eustace and by him she had seven children, three of whom survive her. They are Mrs. George Davison and Miss Agnes Eustace, who made their home with their mother; and William Eustace of Wayside. One son, Samuel Eustace, died four years ago next May. The other three children, Bella, Maggie and George, have been dead some time. They were unmarried.

Mr. Eustace was also married twice. He had three children by his first wife. Two of the children are living. They are Mrs. Kate Nichol and Miss Jennie Eustace of Red Bank. The other child, Sophie, died 28 years ago. She married Jacob Miller, son of the late Simon Miller, who kept a shoe store in the building where Clarence White's shoe store is now located. Mr. Eustace died eleven years ago.

Mrs. Eustace had been a member of the Red Bank Presbyterian church ever since she lived in Red Bank, and she was a very active church worker. She was a loving mother, a kind neighbor and she leaves many friends to mourn her. The children, though born of different parents, were as affectionate as own brothers and sisters, and while it is seldom that so great a variety of relationships exist in one family, there was still perfect harmony and the family was a most happy one.
