    • OBITUARY: DIED AT 101 YEARS
      Miss Mary Supplee, the Last of Her Race, Passes Away.
      Collingswood, N.J. July 30 --- Miss Mary Supplee died here to-day, at the age of 101 years. She was a native of Pennsylvania, where she remained until some years prior to her death. She was born in Montgomery County, May 31, 1795. Her ancestors were of French descent, and left France for Holland at the time of the Edict of Nantes. Andrew Supplee was the ancestor of this portion of the Supplee family, and emigrated from Holland to America in the year 1661, soon after locating in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

      Norris City Cemetery, in which Mary Supplee will be buried is located on what was a portion of the farm of her ancestors, which she and one sister and brother inherited. The old school house located upon the farm, and built by the Supplee family over one hundred and fifty years ago, for the convenience of the family, to which neighboring children were admitted, was a picturesque little building until within the last few years. The family burying ground originally adjoined this school house.

      She was the last of her generation. Of the next later generation, two nephews and one niece remain, William W. Supplee and J. Wesley Supplee, residing in Philadelphia, and Mrs. Charles P. Perry, residing in Norristown, Pa.

      The Supplees are descendants of the Huguenots. After the Revocation of Nantes, by Louis XIV, these good men left their vineyards, mulberry orchards, and silk cultures and came to this new land, and the honored names in South Carolina, New York, and Pennsylvania show that the best blood of France enriches this country. The earliest emigrants Souplis, as the name was then spelled, settled in Pennsylvania in 1685.

      William Penn esteemed him, and gave Andrew Souplis offices of honor. The Supplees are of Welsh descent on the female side, and their Welsh ancestors were very much interested in maritime……………………
