Mrs. William Shoup
Transcribed by Molly Miller

Published: January 25, 1928


Mrs. George R. Logan has received news of the death of her aunt, Mrs. William Shoup, which occurred Friday at her home at Titusville, Fla., where the Shoup family had removed from Augusta a few years ago.

Mrs. Shoup's maiden name was Jane Bovey. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bovey, pioneer residents of Littleton township, and her early girlhood days were spent in this locality.

The sudden death of Mrs. Shoup, who fell dead in her home, is an unusual coincidence inasmuch as the entire family of eight children, four brothers and four sisters, have died in exactly the same manner, death coming without warning.

Mrs. Shoup was the last surviving member of this pioneer family. The brothers and sisters preceding her in death were: Mrs. John Caldwell, Mrs. Herman Yaap, Mrs. Thomas Haber, Joseph, Daniel, Simeon and John Bovey.
