Untitled (Mrs. J.B. Walling)

Mentioning the death of Mrs. J.B. Walling (mother of Mrs. James Mullany of this place) the Boise Democrat says she was among the pioneers of Oregon, but came with her husband and family to Idaho and settled on their farm, a short distance above Boise City, in 1864, where she resided up to the time of her death. Sixteen children were born to her, nine of whom are still living. Her age was seventy-six, and she had been a faithful wife for sixty-one years.
