Bissell, Mary Phillips 1833-1902
A SUDDEN DEATH.
Mrs. Mary M., wife of Edwin A. Bissell, recently of Oneonta, who has been spending some time at the home of her son, Joseph W. Bissell, in the south-eastern part of Burlington, near the Patent post office, died Sunday afternoon, without a moment's warning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Telfer, who reside in the same neighborhood. Mrs. Bissell had called for a short visit and was at the time deemed to be in her usual health. Coroner Bishop of Garrattsville, was at once notified and on arriving at the house and making examination pronounced death due to heart disease. Mrs. Bissell was past 70 years of age, and besides the husband leaves two sons and one sister surviving her; One son, Fredrick Bissell, of Scranton, and Joseph W. above named, and the sister, Mrs. Zina Doolittle, of this place. She was the youngest sister of the late Barney H. and Frederick Philips of this town, children of Mr. and Mrs. John Philips, long since deceased. The funeral of Mrs. Bissell was held on Tuesday at the home of her son, J. W. Bissell, conducted by the Rev. H. H. Fisher; interment in the family plot at this place.
Another obituary with this one gives only slightly more information and different spellings of Phillips. Her son was Jasper W. Bissell, not Joseph as mentioned above.
Her Find a Grave Memorial denotes these facts. Her husband was Edwin Augustus Bissell 1833-1914. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=bissell&GSiman=1&GScid=2340048&GRid=34140661&
