News/Obit* 3 January 1926  Obituary,

Friends and relatives in this county have received the news of the deaths of Misses Isabelle and Elizabeth McKey, both of Newark, which occurred Thursday morning, the latter dying four hours after Miss Isabelle was found dead. Both were former Tiverton-tp residents.

Miss Elizabeth McKey found her sister dead at 4 o'clock Thursday mroning and the shock of her sister's death caused the other to die.

They were born in Pennsylvania and came to this county when they were quite young. The family settled on a farm near Tiverton Center.

Two years ago the two aged women moved to Newark from Tiverton-tp.

Funeral services were held yesterday for both and burial was made in Cedar Hill cemetery.

Several nieces and nephews survive. Mrs. Josephine Lawrence of Keene and Miss Lenora Elder, this city, great nieces are the only close relatives in this county surviving.
