*Obituary
The Arkansian
Friday, April 13, 1860

BYRNSIDE, Margaret - Margaret Byrnside, one of the oldest citizens of this place, died at her residence on Saturday the 7th inst. She was consort of James Byrnside who died here many years ago. After his death she took charge of the hotel at the south west corner of the square now occupied by I. Taylor, Esq. and it is well known that as a Landlady she never had a superior in this town. Becoming advanced in years and wearied with the active duties that required her attention, she retired from the hotel to her late residence and lived in quiet and seclusion to the end of her days. Mrs. B. possessed many excellent traits; she was kind and affectionate to friends.— Her tongue uttered no scandal against her neighbors. Her loss will be regretted by her numerous friends and relatives who are scattered in many sections of the west. Her remains were buried beside her husband's at the Mount Comfort cemetery on Sunday evening. The funeral services at her residence before the procession left for the cemetery were performed by President Baxter of Arkansas College. Mrs. B. was, we believe, a native of Tenn., passed her girlhood in Indiana and at the time of her death was in her seventy-first year. She had been a resident of this place since 1828.
