COATICOOK -- Mr. Edwin Kilburn whose death has already been noted, was a son of Josiah Kilburn and his wife Hulduh Clifford. Many of the readers of this paper will remember Aunt Hulduh, who lived to be more than ninety years of age and retained her facilities and the sweetness of disposition for which she was noted. Mr. Kilburn was born in 1836 on the farm where he lived and died. In 1863 he married Miss Carrie Bryan, who survives him. They had four children, Dora, Mrs. Wilcox of Rochester, Minn.,; Charles, who died in early manhood; Kate, who married Mr. C. A. Sutton, and Frank, who has been his father’s companion and assistant on the farm and in the mill. Mr. Kilburn was respected by all who knew him for his integrity and kindliness. Reticent by nature he yet had a keen art which made him entertaining to his friends. An upright man, a humble neighbor, and a loyal friend has gone to his long home, but his memory will be cherished, and our sympathy goes out to his sorrowing family. (Aug 1913)

DEATH OF MRS. E. J. KILBURN
BARNSTON, Dec. 7.—Mrs. E. J. Kilburn passed away peacefully at her home in Barnston on November 27th, 1921. She was born Caroline Bryan, in Barnston, January 17th, 1838, and therefore lived to the ripe old age of eighty-three years, ten months and ten days. She was married to E. J. Kilburn in 1863, and all her happy married life was spent on the “Kilburn Farm,” which was the home of his parents. Four children were born to them— Dora, Charles, Kate and Frank. In 1897 she suffered an affliction in the death of her son Charles, who died in early manhood in Boston from an open gas jet. From this shock she never fully recovered.
Her husband died in 1913, and her daughter, Mrs. Sutton, in 1919. Our Saviour said, “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” She had a sure and certain faith in the promises of her Redeemer, and hopes of a glad reunion with loved ones gone before. She was quiet and unassuming in her manner, ever faithful to duty in her home, always doing her best, and a kind and thoughtful neighbor, one who has strictly observed God’s commandments. One daughter, Mrs. Wilcox, settled in Minnesota, and Frank always remained at home to assist his parents in their declining years, and by him and his capable wife she was tenderly cared for in her failing health. She was the last one of a family of nine children, all of whom were highly respected residents. The funeral service was held at her late residence, interment being made in Barnston village cemetery. Relatives from out of town who attended the funeral were Mrs. R. E. Marsh and son, Murray, of, Canaan, Vt.; Mrs. W. E. Loomis, of Sherbrooke, and Mrs. E. Bryan, of Coaticook. (Dec 1921)

10. Obit:
A cloud of sadness passed over the neighborhood on Tuesday morning, when it was learned that Mrs. G. A. Sutton had passed away. Although her health had been failing since the first of December, strong hopes were held out for her recovery, but God willed otherwise, and she "passed beyond" in the early morning hours of February 26th. Katie Adella Kilborn was born in Barnston February 19th, 1870, and was married to George Albert Sutton twenty-eight years ago, most of their married life being spent in and around Barnston and Hatley, until three years ago when they moved to this place [Brown's Hill], to the home of Mr. C. A. Brown where Mrs. Sutton or "Kate" as she was familiarly known, ably filled the place of housekeeper, sister and friend to Mr. Brown and those who happened to be in the home. Her quiet, unassuming nature, and friendly ways won the love and esteem of all her neighbors, and her death leaves a vacancy impossible to fill. During her long illness she was tenderly cared for by her family and nurse, Miss Ayer. Her sufferings were all bourne without a murmur, and her perfect trust in God was beatiful. She loved to have her pastor, the Rev. C. Moore, call upon her, and on his last visit, the Sunday before her death, she asked him to "Pray God to take me home in the morning." The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved husband and two daughters, and her aged mother who survives her.
The funeral was held at the home of Mr. C. A. Brown on Thursday, Feb. 28th, Rev. C. Moore officiating. Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Hurd and Mrs. C. Moore sang three favorite hymns of the deceased. The remains were laid in Ayer's Cliff cemetery with six of her Brown's Hill friends as bearers, viz: Messrs. C. A. Brown, G. Flanders, L. D. Schoolcraft, K. G. Sharon, G. C. Curtis, and G. L. Temple. Mr. E. [Edward] Audinwood was manager.
Beatiful flowers were laid upon the casket, among them being two large wreaths, one from Coaticook friends, and the other from Brown's Hill neighbors. Besides her husband, and two daughters, Mrs. Verlie Martin and Ruby Sutton, and aged mother, Mrs. Kilborn of Barnston, the deceased leaves one brother, Frank of Barnston and one sister, Dora, (Mrs. Wilcox) of Minneapolis and other relatives and a host of friends.

12. HATLEY, Que., August 1,-Two of Hatley’s well-known residents, Mrs. Webster and her daughter, Miss Mildred Webster, of ’‘The Locusts,” who have been with relatives at Fitchburg, Mass., passed through a terrifying experience when a miniature tornado struck the city at the noon hour on Thursday, July 17, and when in a gale of cyclonic proportions, with the sky as dark as night, death and property destruction of great amount and wide area visited the town.
Mrs. Webster, with her daughters, Mrs. C. A Hodges and Miss Webster, were alone at the time in the home on Burnap street, the former’s brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Dean Sutton, being absent. Mr. and Mrs. Sutton were, however, on their way home, fortunately in a closed car, and were able to reach there in safety. On the way Mr. Sutton was obliged to slacken speed somewhat on account of a pedestrian who, in an attempt to cross the syeet carrying a small
umbrella, was whirled around and about, but through their united efforts succeeded in making his destination. The only damage resulting to Mr. Sutton’s property was the loss of a portion of the ridge pole. Mrs. Webster and Miss Mildred returned to “The Locusts'’ on Friday evening.

32. MRS. JOHN WEBSTER, OF HATLEY
Hatley, Feb. 23. — This community was saddened at the news of the death of Mrs. John Webster, of this village, which took place in Broad View Hospital, Newport, Vt., early on Tuesday morning, Feb. 14, 1950, after an illness of a little over a week. Mrs. Webster, who was born in Barnston, was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Sutton. Until a short time ago, Mrs. Webster, who had recently passed her 79th birthday led a very active life, looking after her own home, where she lived by herself, caring for her garden and taking an active interest in all the activities of the community. It was hard to realize that she had nearly reached the fourscore mile stone. In 1892, she was united in marriage with Mr. John Webster, who passed away some years ago.
They made their first home on a farm just north of the Old North Church, where they lived for many years. Three children were born to them, one son, who died in infancy, and two daughters. Mabel, Mrs. Clarence Doane. of Newport, Vt., and Mildred, Mrs. Arnold Wheeler, of Ayer’s Cliff. Also surviving are two grandchildren. Wayne Hodges and Beverly (Mrs. Wilson); and six greatgrandchildren, besides a large number of more distant relatives, and many friends. Around 1914. they sold the farm in the Old North Church neighborhood and bought the house in the village formerly belonging to Mrs. Pool, where they have since made their home. Mrs. Webster was an active member of the United Church, a faithful worker in the Women’s Association and for many years a member of the Women’s Institute. She was a good neighbour, who will be missed among a large circle of friends. Prayers were said at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Wheeler, and Mr. Wheeler, in Ayer’s Cliff, at 2 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 16. The funeral service, under the direction of Mr. Cass, of Rock Island, was conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. A. Edwards, at 2:30 p. m., in the Hatley United Church. The bearers were Messrs. Leon Parker, Charles Whitcomb, Thomas Ride, Kenneth Little, Arthur McClay and Howard Ayer. Two favorite hymns, “Unto The Hills” and “Beautiful Isle Of Somewhere” were sung by the choir. A beautiful solo, “Nearer My Home,” was sung by Mrs. Delbert Vaughan, of Lennoxville. Words of comfort were spoken by the pastor, after which the flower laden casket was borne to its last resting place in the family lot in the adjoining cemetery. Among the large company, who came to pay their last respects to a valued friend, were those from Holland, Vt., Rock Island, Newport Vt., Barnston, Brown’s Hill, Coaticook, Ayer's Cliff, Massawippi, and various other places. Sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. (Sherbrooke Daily Record, Feb. 23, 1950, p. 14)

LATE MRS. MORTIMER WEBSTER
In the early morning of Oct. 23rd, 1914, there passed away, at her home in Hatley, one who will long be remembered, and missed and mourned. Her maiden name was Clara Ann Gage, second daughter of Mr. Smith Gage and his wife, Phylena Hovey Gage, of Hatley. She was born Nov. 26, 1834, and spent her girlhood in her father's home. When the exodus to the factories in the neighboring states was popular among Canadian young women of ambition, she was among the first to go, and spent several years in that work. Later, when her parents removed to the north part of the town, she remained at Massawippi and conducted a millinery business at that place. In June, 1866, she was married to Mr. Mortimer Webster, who had but lately returned from California. This marriage was a very happy one, as has often been remarked upon. Three children were born to them and are left to mourn with the aged father, this first break in the home circle. They are Katie, wife of W.O. Fish of Andover, N.H., John S. and Frederick O. Webster of Hatley. About the year 1872 they purchased an estate near the Old Church in Hatley, which by thrift and industry, they converted into a model farm where they made their home for many years. They were faithful attendants of the church in that place, assenting to some extent to the Advent teaching heard there and assisting in many ways to sustain the Gospel message. Later in life she became deeply interested in the beautiful message of Christian Science, which sustained and comforted her in her declining years, proving truly "as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." A number of years ago when advancing age made farm life strenuous, the home was purchased by the eldest son, and the parents removed to a smaller place, known, many years ago, as the Place farm. Here they lived a quiet, though still active and useful life, until the change for her came so unexpectedly, although a warning note had been sounded early in the summer. Now, it was only a few hours of unconsciousness, breaking in upon her usual activities, the earthly existence had gone out, and the busy mother hands were tenderly folded by those near and dear, who had hastily gathered, and behold, all tokens of care and age are obliterated from the placid features. On the following Sabbath the Rev. F. Williams, pastor of the Methodist church, paid eloquent tribute to the promoted life, and spoke words of Christian uplift to the friends who filled the Union church where the service was held. The choir of Hatley sang dear familar hyms. Beautiful flowers covered the casket and afterwards adorned the resting place in the cemetery near by, a silient testimony of love. In addition to the floral offerings of the family and friends, a beautiful wreath was sent by Alexandra Lodge, I. O. O. F., as a token of sympathy with their brother, F.O. Webster. Besides her immediate relatives she leaves two sisters, Mrs. Bustard, of Sherbrooke, Mrs. D. Reed of Fitch Bay, a brother, Mr. W. Gage of Boston, six grand-daughters, several nieces, nephews, and cousins, many of whom were present at the burial. As we turn away from the open grave which speaks so sadly of grief and loss, may we be enabled to look up "to the hills from whence cometh our help," and thus to realize more fully that this which men call death is only the stepping stone into a larger life and a freer, and undimmed by earthly shadows. Mr. Webster, although somewhat frail, is bearing up with fortitude and will make his home with his sons, for the present. (Stanstead Journal, Nov. 19, 1914)

For the bright things God has given
When clouds hang low and sad winds blow
Then think of a cloudless heaven."

5. Sarah's first marriage to Albert Lee Davidson ended about 1905-1907. It seems that Albert wanted to move west to Alberta and presumably she did not want to follow. In 1905 he went west and worked as a cowboy on the Carby & Knight ranch. In Nov. of 1905 he filed for a homestead on the SW 32-39-12. Then he went back to Quebec for the winter and brought out a railcar of supplies. He put lumber in the bottom of the car, loaded equipment and horses and cattle. He had to freight his supplies from Stettler and ford the Battle River. His father Joe Davidson and his brother Ralph followed in 1907 and filed on the south quarters of 6-40-12 bringing more supplies.They were able to come to Sedgewick but waited three days in Daysland for the rail to be finished. In Sedgewick they had to unload their car. Ed Davidson, who worked for the railway and later worked in Alliance, told them just to pile their belongings on the ground and they would be perfectly safe. They were and it took several trips with teams of horses to get it all moved to the homestead. Joe Davidson stayed long enough to prove up on his homestead and then gave the quarter to his sons and returned to Quebec. (Joyce)

- Portrait and biographical album of Henry County, Illinois
"Mrs. Juliett Cox, widow of John W. Cox, a prominent and early settler of Northwestern Illinois, still owns the old farm homestead, but lives at her home in Alpha, at the advanced age of 73 years. Mr. Cox was born in Wayne Co., Ind., in 1807. In 1836 he came into Illinois, and settled on the banks of the Mississippi, at a place called Tippecanoe, near Hampton, Rock Island County. There he lived and labored hard in the development of the country for 13 years, when he came into Oxford Township, and purchased 160 acres of land on section 16. Here he was one of the first pioneers, and was an honored and respected citizen. He lived on the old place, which he had brought to a good state of cultivation, until his death, which occurred March 2, 1864.
Politically, Mr. Cox was a Republican,and religiously, an ardent Methodist, and for 40 years had been connected with that Church. In 1832, while living in Indiana, Mr. Cox was married to Miss Juliett Williamson, the lady whose present name heads this sketch. She was born in Kentucky, in 1812, and passed through all the hardships and privations of pioneer life attending them
on their removal to Illinois in so early a day. She can scarcely realize the remarkable transformation that has taken place in this section of Illinois since she and her husband came here in 1836. Mrs. Cox is and has been for many years connected with the Methodist Episcopal Church. She reared a family of respected and useful children, some of whom are well known in the community in which they reside. The following list gives their names and to whom they have been married : Eliza, the eldest, is the wife of John Henderson; Joseph F. married Jennie
Sutton; John W. was united in the bonds of matrimony with Mary Wagner; Samuel K. has for his wife Miss Ella Patterson; Evarald S. became the husband of Hattie Epperson."

6. "As a furniture dealer and undertaker this gentleman has become an important factor in the business circles of Alpha, and as a public-spirited citizen is thoroughly interested in whatever tends to promote the moral, social or material welfare of the community. A native of Illinois, he was born in Rock Island County, January 16, 1840, and is a son of John W. and Juliette (Williamson) Cox, both natives of Indiana, of which state the grandfather, Joseph Cox, was an early settler. The father was born in 1807, and came to Illinois in 1835, becoming one of the pioneers of Rock Island county.He opened up a farm in Hampton township, where he made his home until 1848, when he removed to Mercer county, this state, and two years later came to Henry county, settling in what is now known as Oxford township. From a tract of wild land he developed a good farm of one hundred and sixty acres near Alpha, and also owned other property, being one of the most prosperous farmers of his community. He died upon his farm in Oxford township, March 2, 1869, and his wife, who survived him for some years, passed away in January, 1888. Amid pioneer scenes Frank Cox grew to manhood, his time being passed in attending the district schools for about three months during the winter, and in working upon the farm during the remainder of the year. At the inauguration of the Civil war he joined the boys in blue, enlisting August 3, 1861, in the Fourth Illinois Cavalry, which was assigned to the Army of the Tennessee. He participated in the battles of Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Franklin, after which he was taken ill with typhoid fever and sent to the hospital at Keokuk, Iowa. After his recovery he was placed on detached duty as clerk in the office of the general hospital at Keokuk, Iowa, and for a time served as ward master. When his term of enlistment expired he was honorably discharged in October, 1864, and returned to his home in this county. Here Mr. Cox was married, December 6, 1864, the lady of his choice being Miss Jane W. Sutton, who was born in Canada, but was reared in Wisconsin and Illinois. Her father, William B. Sutton, died in the Badger state, after which her mother married R.M. Wilber and removed to Illinois, making her home for a time in Warren county, and later in Henry county. Mr. and Mrs. Cox are the parents of the following children; Minnie, a professional trained nurse; Elmer who is married and now lives on a farm in Nebraska; Clinton C., who is married and engaged in the grain and coal business in Alpha; Walter, also a business man of that place; Daisy and Treva, both at home; Lyle, who is attending the Alpha school; and Carlton, the second born, died at the age of two years. After his marriage Mr. Cox located on a farm a mile and a half from Alpha, where he owns one hundred and sixty acres, and to its improvement and cultivation devoted his energies until 1890, when he rented the place and removed to Alpha. Here he opened a furniture store and two years later added to it an undertaking business. He carries a well assorted stock, and by fair and honorable dealing has built up an excellent trade, which is constantly increasing. Since attaining his majority Mr. Cox has affiliated with the Republican party, and cast his first presidential vote for Abraham Lincoln in 1864 and for every nominee of the party since that time. He has taken quite an active part in local politics; has been a delegate to county, state and congressional conventions; and has been honored with a number of official positions of trust and responsibility, having served as collector, road commissioner, township clerk and supervisor. He was an influential member of the county board for twelve years; was chairman of the equalization committee some years; and a member of other important committees. he proved a very competent and faithful officer. He is also an official member and trustee of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Alpha, and holds membership in Oxford Lodge, No. 367, F.&A.M.; Horeb Chapter, at Rio, No. 4, R.A.M.; and Sherman Post, No. 479, G.A.R., of Woodhull."(p. 563-564, The Biographical Record of Henry County, Illinois (Chicago, 1901)).

8. Joseph wrote the following story: "I remember when I was twenty-one years old, I went to a red school house over north of here to a meeting one evening. When the meeting was out, I had a lady friend there and I went home with her to see her home, and I stayed an hour or so, and started to my home, and had to cross a little ravine, and when I got there, there was a wolf there. It was howling and pretty soon I heard another wolf in another direction, and they kept it up and the wolves kept increasing till they got the hair standing up on my head. I went to a picket fence and pulled up a stake and got ready to be attacked. Just about that time there was another young man came along, and we doubled our forces and made it through the wolves. They did not attack us, but we expected it every minute. Finally we got pretty near home, going through a big field. It was dark and we got lost and we had to stay out till pretty near morning before we found our way home."

10. 1864; FRANK'S WEDDING TRIP by J. Frank Cox "I was married on December 6, 1864 at 12 o'clock noon, to Jane Sutton. The Methodist minister married us. My father and mother and my wife's mother and a few friends were at the wedding, but I don't remember who all were there. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon, we started on our wedding trip. When we got to Oneida, the snow was four inches deep. We got supper, took the train at 8 p.m. for Chicago. On arriving at Chicago, the snow was two feet deep and the temperature was 40 degrees below zero. Our train arrived two hours too late to catch the Milwaukee train. We remained in Chicago all day, took the night train for Milwaukee, Wis. and got there at 12 o'clock at night, changed cars for Rolling Prairie. When we got off the train, it was snowing and blowing like a hurricane, and no hotel in sight. We saw a light a little way off and we went to the light and found an old man watching with his soldier son. He came to the door when we rapped, and said: "Come on in, this is a terrible night to be out." We went in and found an old friend of my wife's father's. He made us welcome. We stayed with him all night and till night the next day.
Then we went to meet a friend by the name of Sawyer, and we remained there with them two months. During all that time it never thawed on the south side of the house. My brother Sam took us to the train when we left for our trip, and it got so stormy and cold he nearly froze getting home. In April, we came back to Oxford, or Alpha, and lived there with my wife's mother for two years."

2. BIO: William H. Dean is an enterprising citizen of Morristown, Minn. He was born June 1, 1854, and is the eldest of a family of ten children born to George W. and Martha Jane (Walker) Dean. The other children, named in the order of their births, are James M.; Sarah Jane, who is married to J. D. Hammett; Mary, the wife of P. A. Young; Nettie Louise, who is married to Hans Larson; George W.; Nellie, the wife of J. C. McKenzie; Mattie S., married to Lewis Larson; Minnie, who is married to James Kisor, and Edith, now the wife of Otto Cromwell. The father was born November 15, 1831, in Brown county, Ohio, and is a son of Ninkemiah and Melinda (Jones) Dean, who were pioneer settlers of Tipton county, Indiana, whither they moved with an ox team, thirty-five miles north of the present site of Indianapolis, when our subject's father was eight years old. In the fall of 1845 our subject's father, with his wife and infant child (our subject) left his home in Indiana and after a six weeks' journey with an ox team, reached Grant county, Wisconsin, and the following year removed to Waseca county, which was then a part of Rice county, Minnesota. Here he pre-empted and proved up a claim. Five years later he traded this land for the eighty-acre tract in section fifteen, Morristown township, Rice county, Minnesota, which became the family homestead. Four of his children were born in the rude log house which he first erected here. Those were strenuous times and there were many hardships and privations to be endured. High prices for everything that settlers had to buy was the rule. Mr. Dean paid $2.50 for the first bushel of wheat he bought, while his first sale of wheat brought him only 45 cents per bushel. Twenty two dollars in gold was the price he paid for one hundred pounds of pork, and in 1856 he counted himself fortunate to get a bushel of potatoes for two and a half days' work. Faribault then had four log cabins, and it took three days to make the trip to Hastings, the nearest trading point, and return, with an ox team. Mr. Dean hauled from the old saw mill in Morristown the lumber for the Eagle Hotel in Faribault. But Mr. Dean was a resolute and true pioneer and met and overcame these early trials and lives to enjoy the well earned fruits of his labors, at the old family homestead. Our subject was reared on his father's farm and got his education in the district schools. He was eight years old at the time of the Indian uprising in 1862, and has a vivid recollection of the perils and dangers that threatened as he in company with other refugees fled from their homes to safety in Morristown. After finishing his schooling he turned his attention to farming. He bought his first piece of land, six acres, in 1877, to which he added twelve acres, and then forty acres, and so continued to add to his holdings from time to time until he acquired his present fine farm in section sixteen, Morristown township, Rice county, comprising 172x2 acres, well improved. This farm is now -1910- leased to his son-in-law, Samuel J. Downhour. Mr. Dean has served as a member of the town board some nine years, and for four years was its chairman, and has also served on the school board in district 89. He belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America, and both he and his wife are members of the Baptist Church in Morristown. In the fall of 1905 he moved into the village, and since September 1, 1905, has been in the employ of the government as a mail carrier on rural free delivery route No. 2. Mr. Dean owns lots 4, 5 and 6, in block 3, village of Morristown, and a fine house and barns thereon. He also owns stock in the Morristown State Bank. In 1878 Mr. Dean married Rosa Orpha Henry, of Morristown. Nine children were born to them. Stella E. is married to Samuel J. Downhour and has six children, Harry, Elmer, Dorothy, Lawrence, Pearl and Forest. John, the second child, married Pearl Hoban and has one child, named Iown. Walter, the third, married Lula Mack, in March, 1905. She died in October, 1907. Mabel May, the fourth child, married Hans A. Olson, of Culver, Minn., and has two children, Ruth Irene and Viola May. The fifth child, Onie Bell, is the wife of Cecil W. Temple and has two children, Earl and Marlin. The other children, Hattie Esther, Eathel Maud, Herbert Edward and William Earl are single and live at home. (HISTORY OF RICE & STEELE COUNTIES VOL I & II 1910)

22. Obit: An Old Resident Dies
J.J. Barnes, an old Duluth settler died at his home on Park Point yesterday of typhoid pneumonia, aged 46 years. Mr Barnes was born in Dodge County, Wis., in 1846. In 1862, at the age of 16 years, he enlisted in Company A, of the Tenth Minnesota regiment, as a drummer boy and as he enlisted he demanded to be allowed to carry a musket, which he did through three years of the war. He came to Duluth in 1870 and has been in the employ of Mr. Gray, the lumberman, almost consistently since. Mr. Barnes leaves a wife and four children, the eldest being a young lady and the others small. Mrs. Barnes is a sister of Fred Russell of this city. The deceased was a man generally admired for his steadfast honesty and upright character. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity and of Willis A. Gorman post, G. A. R. Although possessed of some property he unfortunately left no life insurance. The funeral will occur at 10 o'clock tomorrow under direction of Willis A. Gorman post, G. A. R. All friends are invited to attend. ("Duluth Daily News, Thurs, 25 Feb. 1892)-(also appears in the Warren Sheaf, March 10th)

23. Obit: In Memoriam.
Our comrade and friend Mr. J. J. Barnes will be honored with a soldier's burial at 10 a.m. tomorrow Friday, from the congregational church. At a special meeting last evening of the Willis A. Gorman post, many touching tributes were offered to his kindly and true life. In the plain and unostentatious manner in which he always lived, he has left many witnesses to his faithful and generous friendship. When a lad 16 he enlisted at Owatonna as a drummer boy in the Tenth Minnesota. Once in the ranks, he dropped the drum and shouldered the musket, which he carried right bravely through the years of march and battle 'till he was mustered out of the service in June, 1865. With perhaps but one exception he alone in the state was both veteran and a son of a veteran. The writer has known him for 21 years and with many others mourn the loss of one of the best and kindest friends of his life. We have cause to thank for the record of such a man, true as steel, honest as the day is long, laying up little of this world's goods, but leading a legacy to his family for which they will ever have occasion to be thankful.

24. 1912; S. 3500. Willard E. Martin was a sergeant in Company A, Tenth Regiment Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted August 11, 1862, and was honorably discharged July 5, 1865, having served nearly three years. The medical records show him treated while in service for chronic diarrhea and dysentery. He established a claim under the general law and is pensioned at $17 per month for chronic diarrhea and resulting disease of rectum and vertigo and desease of heart - results of sunstroke. He was first pensioned at $12 from October 10, 1889; increased to $17 from September 9, 1891. Application for further increase was rejected July 29, 1910.
When claimant was last examined by a Pension Bureau board, at Owatonna, Minn., June 1, 1910, he was rated five-eighteenths for disease of heart and twelve-eighteenths for chronic diarrhea. The board did not recommend any increase, but stated that claimant was thin and emaciated and muscles are flabby, and he walks haltingly with a cane. Evidence filed with this committee is to the effect that claimant is incapable of performing manual labor by reason of chronic diarrhea and resulting disease of stomach and rectum, heart disease, and vertigo, resulting from sunstroke. He is about 74 years of age and in need of additional relief for the support of himself and family, all in poor health. Acting in this case as we have in similar cases, the committee recommend increase of pension to $24 per month.

3. HOLDUP MEN DEFEATED BY MAN'S NERVE
Gerald Gage Grappled With Masked Robber at Balboa Revolver Discharged Sent a Bullet Through His Cap
The nerve of Gerald R. Gage was all that stood between $50 and two masked men at t&O Balboa pavilion early Sunday morning. Gage is Manager Beckwith’s assistant at the pavilion. Saturday night was a busy one for Gage. The dance was over, he had hunted up lodgings for some hunters who came in on the last car and went back to the pavilion to balance his books and cash. It was about 2 a. m. when he counted the proceeds in the cash register amounting to about $50 and placed the money in the safe. Just as he turned the combination lock there was a click at his ear and he turned and looked down two shining revolver barrels. Without a second thought Gage grasped one of the revolvers and wrenched it from the highwayman’s hand. They grappled and rolled over on the floor overturning stools, bashets and popcorn cans. In the mix-up the gun was discharged and it was afterwards discovered that the bullet cut a hole through Gage’s cap. The second masked man was evidently too frightened to aid his accomplice. John Scarpio, the Italian gondolier who sleeps at the pavilion, was awakened by the discharge of the gun and when the highwaymen heard him coming they fled. Gage describes his assailant as a man of medium build about five feet six and weighing about 160 pounds. Before Gage recovered from his scare they were out of sight and no trace was found of them.

12. "Mail Carrier Held In Fraud", 'Lindbergh Nmae Declared Used in Book Scheme', Posing as Colonel's Air Tour Aide Also Charged', 'Nine Counts Included in Federal Indictment'
Authorship ambitions of Gerald R. Gage, for seventeen years a mail carrier in Los Angeles, yesterday led to his arrest by Deputy United States Marshal Mangerina on nine counts of a Federal indictment charging use of the mails to defraud by the use of the name of Col. Charles Lindbergh and representing himself to be Donald E. Keyhoe, aide to Lindbergh in his tour of the United States. It is charged in the indictment returned yesterday, that Gage obtained a contract with Dorrance & Co., Inc., publishers of Philadelphia, for the printing of a book to be called "We Fly", by representing himself to be Keyhoe, and that he had been commisioned by Col. Lindbergh to write the book; that Lindbergh had gone over the rough draft of the manuscript and approved it, but was too busy to write it himself.
"Practical Joke"
In the Marshal's office yesterday Gage did not deny that he had conceived the plan for the publication, but said he had done it "as a practical joke". It was stated by Asst. U.S. Atty. Redwine, who investigated the case, that Gage had a book called "Lucky Lindy" published in Los Angeles, and that he represented to Dorrance & Co. that he was the Keyhoe who had written several articles for the Saturday Evening Post. It is charged that beginning May 4, last Gage communicated with Dorrance & Co. on paper bearing the letterhead, "Donald E. Keyhoe, aide to Col. Lindbergh of the United States Tour, 311 North Boyle avenue, Los Angeles, Cal." It is charged in the indictment that the address given by Gage is actitious and is on the mail route he handles.
"Details of Deal"
Mr. Redwine stated that information in his hands indicates that Gage, upon receiving the letters sent to the address in the name of Keyhoe, kept the letters. It was stated that Dorrance & Co. prepared advance sheets of the proposed publication of "We Fly", and that the company opened negotiations with the Saturday Evening Post for $12,000 for the publication of portions of the book. Gage is said to have sent Dorrance & Co. numerous pictures said to have been taken at Balboa Beach, falsely representing them to be pictures of Lindbergh as a child. Other persons, acquantances of Gage were in the pictures. Arrangements were made for release of the suspect on bail of $1,000.

9. Obit: DEATH CLAIMS MRS. HILLMAN
Mrs. Harriet Martin Hillman Passed Away at Father's Home Friday.
HAD BEEN IN POOR HEALTH FOR LAST SEVEN MONTHS
Funeral Was Conducted by Rev. Mr. Briggs Last Sunday Afternoon.
The funeral of the late Mrs. Harriet Martin Hillman, whose death occurred at the city hospital on Friday, July 25th, after an illness of seven months, took place at the home of her father, W. E. Martin on Academy street last Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. John G. Briggs, pastor of the First Baptist church officiated. The interment was made in Forest Hill cemetery. Mrs. Hillman's maiden name was Harriet Hill Martin. She was born in Merton township, Steele county, November 16, 1884. She was married to Mr. Frank Hillman on January 8, 1913. Mrs. Hillman was a graduate of Pillsbury Academy and of Carleton College. She was a thorough student, standing at the head of her class at each institution. At the close of her college course she went abroad for three months. On her return she began teaching at Excelsior, Minn., where she was principal for two years. She began to fail in health last fall and gradually declined until
her death. She was a devoted Christian and her life of unselfish service was ever apparent. She is survived by a sorrowing husband, Frank Hillman, Lyle, Washington, parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Martin, sisters, Bessie and Ruth of this city and Grace, of Los Angeles, California, and brothers George Martin of Sharon, Kansas and Frank Martin, Los Angeles, California. (The Peoples Press, Aug. 1, 1913)

10. —-By telephone message from Owatonna last Friday, word came to Miss Eva Smith of the unexpected death of her classmate and roommate at Carleton college, Mrs. Frank Hillman, and she went the following day to Owatonna to attend the funeral, returning home Monday morning. A brief sketch of Mrs. Hillman's life is as follows: Harriet E. Martin was born Nov. 16, 1886. Having graduated from Pillsbury academy with highest honors, she graduated from Carleton college in 1910 at the head of her class. During her student life she taught, for two years and after leaving college for two vears at Excelsior, this state. Jan. 8, 1913, she was married to Frank M. Hillman, of Lyle, Wash., eldest son of S. H. Hillman formerly of Milton township, this county, and who had graduated from Pillsbury academy in the same class with his bride. Taken ill with a nervous trouble in December, 1912, (probably the result of overwork in school life) she was an invalid at the time of her marriage, and inspite of all that anxious friends and skillled physicians could do, she continued to suffer and steadily fail until, on July 24. 1913, at the City hospital in her home city, death came to give her rest and the unselfish, beautiful life on earth was closed. The funeral was conducted from the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Willard Martin, Academy street, Owatonna, last Sunday afternoon, her pastor, Rev. John G. Briggs of the Baptist church, who six months before had officiated at her wedding, conducting the final service. Besides the aged parents and young husband, there are brothers and sisters to mourn the: vacancy in the family circle. Many friends of the husbarfd and his family Dddge county will sympathise with him in what seems little less than a tragedy. In the Express home, where Mrs. Hillman (then Miss Martin) spent a part of last September, she will always be a pleasant, helpful memory. (The Mantorville Express, Aug. 1, 1913)

1. Son of Silas Henry Hillman and Emma Derua Gaylord from NY.
- Silas H. Hillman, who for several years was a resident of Long Prairie, Minnesota, died at his home in Lonepine, Montana after a three week illness due to influenza.
Silas Henry Hillman Jr. was born August 12, 1851 in Mayfield, New York, the son of Silas and Clarissa Hillman. When a lad of seven they moved to Fond du Lac county, Wisconsin where they lived unil 1873. Mr. Hillman graduated from Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1875. Shortly after graduation he spent a short time in Germany studying music. Although gifted with unusual musical talent he was handicapped with small hands and decided that a musical career was impossible.

Here their children were born; Frank, Merton and Florence. In 1902 they family moved to Owatonna in order for the children to attend Pillsbury Academy. Mr. Hillman returned to his first love of music where he pursued the trade of piano tuner in the surrounding territory. Later the famiy moved to Minneapolis where the boys attended the university and Mr. Hillman continued his profession. After they completed their studies they moved to Lyle, Washington and later they moved to Lonepine, Montana.
Mr. and Mrs. Hillman made their home in Long Prairie, Minnesota from 1925 until September, 1938, when they again moved to Lonepine, Montana. During the time they lived in Long Prairie Silas continued his work as a piano tuner and was also very active in church circle and was a lifelong member of the Baptist church. Throughout his life Mr. Hillman offered his musical service playing the pipe organ or piano. Mr. Hillman will be missed from the music and church circles in which he took such pleasure.
They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Surviving are Mrs. Hillman; son, Frank M. both of Lonepine, Montana and Florence R. Cone of Gridley, California, who found it impossible to be present.

20. Old Settler Moves Away
Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Searle and family left Tuesday evening for Sunnyside, Wash., where they will make their future home.

The family has always been prominent in church matters and were numbered among our very best citizens. Mr. Searle has always taken a great interest in the progress and welfare of the community, and his influence will be greatly missed by the people of McCrea, in which town is located his fine farm, which he has so successfully conducted, and also by Warren citizens with whom he has had such satisfactory business relations. The SHEAF joins their many friends in wishing them all the success and happiness in their new home they so richly deserve. (Warren Sheaf, Nov. 29, 1900)

1. Son of Thomas Eugene Huston and Elizabeth A. White.
- Thomas Eugene Huston was born in Clinton county, New York, near Lake Champlain, August 28, 1841, and passed away at his home here, January 5. His parents moved to McHenry county, Ill., near Coral when he was fourteen years of age and moved to South-Western Iowa before the Civil War, remaining there for a short time, returning to the place of their former residence in Illinois. He enlisted in the Union army from Marengo, McHenry county, Ill., May 24, 1861, as a private of Captain Harley Wayne’s Co. D 16th Regt., Ill., Vol. Inf., Col. Thomas J. Turner, commanding. He was honorably discharged December 16, 1863 at Camp Cowan near Vicksburg, Miss., on account of his re-enlisting the same day for three years or during the war as a veteran in the same company and regiment under Capt. F. A. Smith and Col. G. C. Rogers.
This was one of the first regiments from the state to enter the service for three years, and after having drilled, proceeded to Albion, Ill., where It remained for about six weeks for instruction, thence moved by steamboat to St. Charles, Mo., thence to Jefferson Barracks and Rolla, Mo., where it arrived in time to cover Gen. Sigel’s retreat from Wilson Creek. After building fortifications it was ordered to Tipton, Mo., where it became attached to Gen. Fremont’s army and marched to Springfield and Sedalia, Mo., assisting in the capture of 1,800 rebels a few miles from the latter place, then marched to Otterville, Mo., and went into winter quarters.
February 1, 1862 the regiment marched to Jefferson City thence by rail to St. Louis where it embarked on transports for Fort Donelson, where it arrived in time to be present at the surrender of that fort. The regiment was later assigned to the 2nd Brigade, 4th Division, 17th Corps, army of the Tennessee, and on July 1, 1864 was reorganized, Mr. Huston being transferred to Captain Phineas D. Kenyon’s Co. C, of the reorganized battalion.
This regiment participated in the following engagements; Shilloh, Tenn.; Siege of Corinth Hathcie river; Champion hill; seige of Vicksburg, miss.; Ackworth; Big Shanty; Allatoona; Kenesaw Mountain; march to the sea and Savannah, Ga.; Salkhutchee river and Columbia, S.C.; Fayetteville and Bentonville, N.C.; thence moved to Goldsboro and Raliegh, N.C. and after Johnston’s surrender to Sherman marched to Washington DC., and there took part in the Grand Review May 24, 1865. After the close of war it was detached and per formed guard and garrison duty in Kansa. Mr. Huston was at all times with this command and performed brave and meritorious service until he was captured near Ackworth, Ga., Sept. 28, 1864 and imprisoned at Andersonville, and other places until he was released on parole April 29, 1865, at Jacksonville, Fla. He was also sick and in hospitals at Memphis, Tenn., and Rolla, Mo., for a time.
Mr. Huston’s father, Benjamin W. Huston was also a veteran of the Civil War, making Mr. Huston not only a veteran, but the son of a veteran. Mr. Huston was married to Elizabeth A. White at Coral, Ill., October 16, 1868. They came to Iowa and to Hardin county in 1881 and have lived on farms in the vicinity of Iowa Falls and Alden.
They lived in Alden sixteen years preceding their coming to Iowa Falls a year ago last fall when they made their home with their daughter Mrs. Kelsey, where the wife passed away a short time ago.
The following children are living; Harry E. Huston and Mrs. Mabel E. Kelsey of Iowa Falls; James B. Huston, Waterloo; Mrs. Morris L. McMillen, Iowa Falls and A. Gardner Huston, of Atlanta, Ga.; and Guy W. Huston, Spokane, Wash.; and Mrs. Frank Edwards, Sunnyside, Wash. Mr. Huston was the last of nine children.
The deceased was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and Sons of Veterans. He united with a branch of the Methodist church soon after his marriage and has been identified with the church here and in Alden, serving in official relationship during much of the time.
His was a simple lofty character, sincere, strong, courageous, devout, religious, trustful, tender and humble and self-effacing faithful in all relationships, exercising a wholesome influence on others, trusting in Christ as Lord and Savior and the Resurrection and Life. (Jan 1920)

15. HE KNOWS THE ANSWER
Guy W. Huston is a man with a tall, square frame and a long, keen memory. Three different times he comes into the office yesterday, until he finally finds the writer's desk occupied. "I'm from Sunnyside," he begins pleasantly, "or I'd have been here with this a lot earlier. Some time back, you wrote an article wondering about how Five Mile prairie got its name - since it really isn't five miles from Spokane. Well, now, ma'am, I know. It's because the acreage known as Five Mile priarie is just five mile square. I know; I've ridden it out." Matter of fact, he concludes, the first job he had in Spokane consisted of "riding territory." "I worked for the old Wildwood dairy then, beyond Minnchaha park, in 1902. My job was to shinny up the water tower every so often and see if the cows had strayed too close to the Great Northern's tracks. If they had, I jumped on a pony and brought them home." Anybody wants to argue this one with Guy, best they get on their horse. (Spokesman-Review, Aug. 17, 1956)

He met Malinda Mathews (born 1833), was married and moved to Fayette County, Iowa. Twelve children were born to them, of which seven survived. Artemus and brother Nathan walked to Oak Valley looking for land. They homesteaded two farms in 1873, came back in 1874 and cut logs for homes and cleared some land. They moved here in June, 1875. Artemus bought 160 acres in Section 1. They came in a covered wagon with oxen. They were the first ones to homestead in the township. The township was chartered in 1877 and named Oak Valley.

Oak Valley Township
FIRST SETTLERS: In the fall of 1874 two land hunters, Artemus C. and Sydney M. Packard, tramping through the unbroken area between Wadena and Parkers Prairie, came upon a strip of brush prairie. Heavy timber, including oak, was on either side of the prairie and a stream of clear water ran through the middle of it. The area, a mile wide and five miles long, looked like a valley, but was actually high land. The place was called Oak Valley and the name stuck. The first settlers were the two Packard brothers who were natives of Vermont by way of Illinois.
ORGANIZATION: On November 15, 1876 a petition was filed by a majority of legal voters requesting formation of a township. Petitioners included G. J. Ausborne, JohnBiggs, George Broughton, Isaac N.

Mr. Ketcham is an old resident of Warren, and has a large number of friends, who join the SHEAF in wishing him success in his new venture.

17. Extract of Letter From G. F. Barnes. Our former townsman, Mr. G. F. Barnes, now in the meat market business at Surnyside, Wash., writes to one of our citizens, and we are at liberty to quote the following extracts from his letter, telling how he likes the country out west: 'We arrived at Sunnyside April 26th, and found the season somewhat backward, and quite cool compared to what it has been heretofore, but it was much ahead of Minnesota as to vegetation, as the fields were green, and trees leaved out, and grain up and looking fine. We went into business May 4th, and have a nice little shop and a good business, and good prospects in the future. "I like it out here first rate, and think this is going to be a very nice country, as the climate is very mild, and will grow nearly every kind of fruit and vegetables, and crops of hay, oats and wheat, etc." (Warren Sheaf, June 27, 1901, p. 1)

18. Sunnyside
Mr. G. Barnes' team ran away with his little daughter in the wagon, but fortunately she was not hurt. (Yakima Herald, July 1, 1902)

19. "George F. Barnes. One of the most progressive and popular citizens of Sunnyside is the subject of this biography, who has the confidence of his fellow men to such an extent as to be chosen in 1902 as one of their councilmen, and in that capacity is still serving. He came to Sunnyside three years ago[1901?], from Warren, Minnesota, finding the meat business of Sunnyside in a very primitive condition. He purchased the building devoted to that business, and a corner lot, and immediately commenced to supply the public with the best meats obtainable and to build up a reputation for strict integrity. So successful has he been that he has now let the contract for a two-story brick building thirty by fifty feet, the lower floor of which he expects to occupy with one of the best shops in the county, the upper floor to be devoted to offices. Mr. Barnes was born in Horicon, Wisconsin, February 25, 1855, to the union of Jonathan H. and Sarah (Sutton) Barnes. Jonathan H. was a native of England. born in 1823; Sarah Barnes was born in Quebec, Canada, in the year 1820. Both parents long ago crossed over life's great divide. As a child two years old, Mr. Barnes was taken to Steele county, Minnesota, in 1879, and settled upon a homestead, which he cultivated with fair success until 1885. Following this experience he went to Minneapolis and engaged in the meat business with a partner, A. Campbell; afterwards buying him out and conducting the business alone. Two years and a half later he sold the business and returned to Marshall county, opening a shop at Warren. He was a citizen of Warren until February, 1901, when he came to Sunnyside, bringing his family out the following April. The business has prospered exceedingly and is rapidly growing. The marriage of Mr. Barnes was celebrated in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1886, his bride being Miss Lucy E. Dix, the daughter of William A. and Sarah (Richardson) Dix. Mr. Dix, now dead, was a native of Vermont; Mrs. Dix, born in 1831 in Massachuisetts, is still living. Mrs. Barnes is a native daughter of Illinois, born in Will county, 1859. She has two sisters, Mrs. Hattie Dix, living in Iowa, and Mrs. Emma Wells, of the Sunnyside valley, and one brother, William C., a resident of Iowa. Mr. Barnes has three sisters and one brother - Mrs. Alice A. Martin; Minnie W., in Minnesota; Mrs Ellen C. Searl, in Sunnyside valley; and Charles E., in Minnesota. Six children, all born in Minnesota, constitute the junior portion of the Barnes home - L. Bernice, born in 1887; Maude R., in 1890; A. Judson, in 1892; J. Howard, in 1894; Myrtle, in 1896; and Alice E., in 1898. Mr. Barnes is affiliated with two fraternities, the Modern Woodmen of America and the Modern Brotherhood of America. He is active in political affairs as a member of the Prohibition party. For fifteen years he has been identified with the membership of the Methodist Episcopal church and is an active religious worker. Besides his establishment in Sunnyside, Mr. Barnes owns the property on which it stands, seven and a half acres inside the city limits, on which he has a very comodious and comfortable home, a business building and lot which he rents, a half interest in another two-acre tract of city property and real estate in Warren. He has recently begun to raise thoroughbred, registered Jersey cattle and already has several head of registered stock. Mr. and Mrs. Barnes are prominently identified with the social life of the community, and are highly esteemed for their many commendable and congenial traits of charater. Mr. Barnes is a citizen of recognized strength in the county and community."

22. Local News
We were greatly surprised to see George F. Barnes, a former pioneer resident and business man of this city, step off from the train on Tuesday morning. He removed with his family to Sunnyside, Wash., a number of years ago and still resides at that place. About a year ago he suffered a paralytic stroke from which he has not yet fully recovered, and on account of which he limps considerably when walking. Otherwise he looks the same and is the same jovial, kindly and even tempered man as in former days. Mr. Barnes has been on a visit with relatives at Owatonna, Minn., for a number of weeks, and being so close to Warren, he could not forego the pleasure of a visit with his many friends here. He reports his family well and happy and contented in their western home. (Warren Sheaf, Jan. 28, 1909)

23. 1910: Local News;

There are some as fine farms in Troy as are to be found in Will County. D. C. Searles, Myron Spencer, James Paul, the McEvoys, W. A. Dix, Brady and others are among the model farmers of the county, and have large and well-improved farms. This is thoroughly an agricultural region, and the large amount of grain and stock produced find a ready market by means of the Illinois & Michigan Canal and by the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad, which pass through it. (p. 614)
William A. DIX, farmer, Sec, 18; P. O. Minooka; the subject of this sketch was born in Windham Co., Vt., Jan. 17, 1828. He married Miss S. R. RICHARDSON Jan. 27, 1859; she was born in Concord, Vt., April 6, 1831; they have four children, viz. - Lucy E., born June 12, 1859; Hattie E., born Jan. 31, 1861; Emma M., born Nov. 25, 1862, and William C., born April 13, 1868. He lived nearly eleven years in Vermont, when, with his parents, he moved to Bureau Co., IL; this was in 1838; they came the entire distance in a wagon; they engaged in farming, and remained there until 1861, when he came to his present place; he came here in fair circumstances; he owns over 200 acres, mostly in this township, which he has earned principally by his own labor; his parents, Moses DIX and Mrs. Lucy (STEARNS) DIX, are living in Mendota, IL; his wife's parents, Stephen RICHARDSON and Mrs. Erepta (WILDER) RICHARDSON, are living in Bureau Co., IL, where they settled in 1839. (p. 885, HISTORY OF WILL COUNTY, ILLINOIS; Chicago: 1878)

- W. A. Dix was born in Wilmington Vt., Jan 17, 1828. He moved to Illinois with his parents in 1838 settling in a place which afterward acquired the name of Clarion township Bureau Co. where he lived for 20 years. He was married in 1858 to Sarah R. Richardson. He moved to Will Co., Ill., in March 1861 where he lived for 22 years. Disposing of his property there he came to Blackhawk Co., Iowa in 1880 settling a mile and a half south of Waterloo where he resided until about two months ago when he moved into town. It was in 1880 that he received an injury which seems to have been the first cause of declining health. For the last five years he had given up all activity in life. Last winter a stomach trouble set in which continued to grow worse until at 10 o'clock p. m. on the 10th of May 1895, the thread that bound him to life was severed. He leaves to mourn his loss the wife three daughters and one son who were all present at the time of his death. The funeral service was held at the late home of the deceased, 308 Allen street the Rev. Robt Bruce pastor of the Second Baptist church officiating. The choir of the First Baptist church assisted in the service by the singing of appropriate hymns. After the service at the house the remains were taken to Elmwood cemetery where they were tenderly laid in their final resting place. (May 1895)

1. Daughter of Jesse Charles Ault and Mary Malinda Doran.
- Jesse Charles Ault, (Philip, John, Everhart, Johannes), one of 12 children of Philip Ault and Sophia Ann Edwards, was born on 3 May 1844 on his parents' farm located east of Irena on Lot 14 in the III Concession in Matilda. He died on 11 Jan 1939 in Monkland and his burial site has not been located. Jesse Charles Ault and Mary Melinda Doran were married on date unknown in Matilda.
Mary Melinda Doran — no information except to note that she was born in 1847.
Jesse Charles Ault and Mary Melinda Doran had 2 children.
Edith Ault, b 1868, d
George Ault, b 1870, d
When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, Jesse Charles Ault was listed as age 7, born in Upper Canada and living in the Philip Ault farmhouse which was located east of Irena on Lot 14 in the III Concession in Matilda. When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, Jesse Charles Ault was listed as age 25 and his wife Mary Melinda Doran was listed as age 24. Their children Edith was recorded as age 3 and George was recorded as age 1. The Dundas County Land Records demonstrate that in 1893 John Doran received 10 acres of Lot 14 in the III Concession in Matilda. This property had been a legacy to Jesse Charles Ault and a dower right of Ann Elizabeth Ault which had undoubtedly come from their father Philip. In that same year, 1893, Jesse Charles Ault and Ann Elizabeth Ault had conveyed, by deed, the E 1/2 of Lot 15 to John Doran. After they sold this property, the Jesse Charles Ault family are said to have gone to Montana. They returned to Matilda later on and spent the rest of their lives in Matilda.
