Article Description: Obituary Mrs. F. C. HATHEWAY
The sad news of the death of Mrs. F. C. HATHEWAY, formerly Helen BUCKINGHAM, which reached
this city by telegram yesterday, was received by her large circle of friends with the
deepest regret and sorrow.
Helen BUCKINGHAM was the eldest daughter of the late General C. P. BUCKINGHAM, who was for
so many years one of Chicago's prominent citizens. She was born at Mt. Vernon, Ohio,
July 6, 1846, and came to Chicago with her father's family in 1867. She was educated
at the Painsville, Ohio, Ladie's Seminary, and was united in marriage to F. C.
HATHEWAY, son of Franklin HATHEWAY, of the Jennings Trust Company, Oct. 20, 1874, and
since that time has resided in this city until within the past three years, during which
time she has made Hillsborough, Ohio, her home, that she might be near the beneficial
waters of healthful springs in that vicinity and under the treatment of an old family
physician, as she had been suffering from a lingering malady, of which she was almost free
at the time of her death. Her demise was caused by a sudden stroke of paralysis of the
heart, experienced at 11:20 Sunday night. While residing in Chicago Mrs. HATHEWAY was
prominent in North Side society, a!
nd was for many years a member of the Apollo Club and organist in the Church of Our
Savior,of which both she and her husband were members.

Mr. E. H. BUCKINGHAM left last evening for Hillsborough, where the funeral will be held
to-morrow, after which the remains will be taken to Zanesville, Ohio, for interment in the
family lot. The deceased has a sister residing at Hillsborough, and also many friends of
her childhood. Her mother, who for the last year has been with her, was present at the
death-bed, and folder the hands of her loved daughter in her last sleep.
