Stoughton, Ann M. (27 JUN 1830 - 7 JAN 1924)
Mrs. A. G. Stoughton died at her home at Abbotsford, Wis., Monday night, Jan. 7th, 1924, after a brief illness of a week's duration, aged 93 years, 6 months and 10 days.
The funeral service was held yesterday afternoon, Jan. 10th, at 2:30 at the home and this morning the body was taken to Weyauwega and laid beside her husband and two children, who preceded her in death.
Ann Melia Mosher was born in New York, June 27, 1830, and on July 4th, 1848 was married to Alexander G. Stoughton at Quimby House, Green Bay, Wis. They resided for a time on a farm near Weyauwega and about fifty years ago they came to Dorchester country and settled on a farm southeast of hear, Section 17, town of Holton, Marathon Co., where Mr. Stoughton died June 3, 1888.
Four children were born to them, two, Mary and Willie, who died while they lived at Weyauwega and two living, Frank of Sheboygan Falls and Harry of Ironwood, Mich.
Twenty-six years ago Mrs. Stoughton left the farm, visited relatives in Kansas and then moved to Prentice, where she lived a year or so. Then she moved to Abbotsford about 23 years ago and purchased the house she passed away in.
Too much cannot be said for these pioneer settlers of North Wisconsin of which Mrs. Stoughton was one. Brave and sturdy, true and fine, afraid of nother that helped to make this country what we now see before us.
Mrs. Stoughton was this in every respect and never complained or retted, no matter how she suffered; even through the final illness she was cheery and kind and thought always of others.
Harry was summoned from Ironwood and spent the last few days with her, but owing to the fact that she seemed to rally and was better, Frank and his wife didn't reach here until after her death.
Other relatives living near here are Mrs. John Whiting, Prentice, sister; George Stoughton, Milan, Grandson; Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Mathews, Abbotsford, Mrs. S. Hugoboom and Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Hugoboom.
The many friends in Dorchester and Abbotsford offer sincerest sympathy to those who mourn.
