Follett, Eliza (6 July 1846 - 29 Oct. 1931)

Mrs. Eliza Follett, an early resident of Neillsville and for 25 years corresponding secretary of the State W. C. T. U., passed away at her home in Marshfield, Oct. 29, age 85.

She was born at Beverly, Ohio, July 6, 1846, and educated in the public schools at a girls’ seminary at New Brighton, Pa., and Beaver College at New Matamoras, Ohio. She was married Aug. 13, 1868, to George Ives Follett in Ohio. After coming west they lived for some time in Neillsville where Mr. Follett taught school. He studied law and was admitted to the bar and for many years he practiced at Spencer where he also operated a hotel, the well-known Blackstone House. After Mr. Follett’s death she moved to Marshfield where she made her home since.
