Mrs. Catharine Williams.

Mrs. Catharine Williams, who was terribly burned on the "Charity Road," near Water street, South Side, Monday morning, died at her home last night at 10:35 o'clock. She became unconscious at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon and remained in that condition until the end came.

Mrs. Williams' maiden name was Catharine Poole, and she was a daughter of William and Jane Poole, deceased, being born in Camborne, County Cornwall, England, in 1829. She was married in Camborne in 1852 and her husband -- William Williams -- died there fourteen years ago. In 1880 Mrs. Williams came to America on a visit to her son -- William J. Williams -- and nine years ago she came again to remain permanently.

The deceased is survived by two sons -- William J., the coal operator, and Walter, who is employed by his brother. Mrs. Williams was a sister of Stephen and Thomas Poole, of Australia; Mrs. Jane Floyd, of Pottstown, Pa., and Mrs. Jane Rabling, who is in Mexico.

The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon from the home of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Williams, No. 317 Water street. The Rev. Dr. C. C. Hays, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, of which Mrs. Williams was a member, will conduct the obsequies. Interment will be made in Grand-View Cemetery.
