Charlotte Melissa Tuttle was born Feb. 10, 1836 at Cleveland, Ohio, and continued to residence in Ohio until she was 18 years old; then with her parents she came to the town of Auburn, Fond du Lac County, Wis., where she met and married Eben Delos Raymond, a year later. Mr. and Mrs. Raymond moved from there to Christie, Clark County in the spring of 1867, where they reared their children and continued residence until they moved to Granton, Clark County in the spring of 1911. Mr. Raymond died there in January of 1916, and Mrs. Raymond, being of considerable of an invalid as the result of a paralytic stroke suffered some years earlier, has made her home with her children since, and of late years has remained with Mrs. Fradette. Here, at the age of 87 years, death claimed her at one o'clock last Sunday afternoon.
