DALLAS, Mrs. Mary M.
Merced Express, May 24, 1913
 
Death of Mrs. Dallas.
 
Mrs. Mary M. Dallas, a pioneer resident of this section and widow of the late William Dallas, who at one time conducted a livery business at Ninth and H streets, died Monday shortly after noon at the home of her son, Aldein Dallas, 208 Orange street. Death was the direct result of a stroke of paralysis sustained by Mrs. Dallas a week ago.
 
Mrs. Dallas was born in Indiana, November 12, 1844, and was 68 years old at her last birthday, She came to this section in the early days and made her home here until six years ago when she took up her residence in San Francisco. She came to Modesto three months ago on a visit. She leaves four sons, Guy Turner of Modesto, whose father was Mrs. Dallas first husband; Aldein Dallas of Modesto, at whose home she died, and Barry and William Dallas of Merced. Mrs. Dallas leaves to her four sons an everlasting memory of her as a devoted mother. To her sister, Mrs. J. S. Alexander, and the many friends who knew her, she leaves the thought of her as a woman of great human kindness.
 
The funeral services will take place Wednesday morning at the home of Aldein Dallas on Orange street. Rev. H. K. Pitman will officiate. At 12:20 a special car, carrying the body and about 30 relatives and intimate friends, will be attached to the regular northbound Southern Pacific train for Stockton. There the services will be private and the body placed in the Hickman vault in the Stockton cemetery.  Mrs. Hickman was a sister of Mrs. Dallas’ husband, William Dallas.
