Prosser, Gertrude (1809 - 19 NOV 1878)

Died, in this village (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), on Tuesday, the 19th inst., of heart disease, Mrs. Gertrude Prosser, in the 69th years of her age.

Mrs. Prosser was born at Rochester, N.Y., and resided in Oswego Co. until some 28 years ago, when she, with her husband and family, removed to this state, and took up a residence at Friendship, Fond du Lac Co.. In 1873, five years ago, they came to this place, where she has since resided, and was therefore one of the pioneer families of this northern country. Mrs. P. had the misfortune of losing her husband a little over a year ago, and has resided with her sons since that time. She was the mother of five children, two sons and three daughters, all of whom are still living, and deeply mourn the loss of a kind and endearing mother.

The funeral services will take place at the schoolhouse tomorrow at 10 o’clock a.m.
