McTaggart, Mina (1843 - 16 NOV 1915)

Mrs. Mina McTaggart died at Marshfield Nov. 16, 1915, and was brought here for burial, the funeral taking place Thursday at the Presbyterian Church, Rev. S.B. Pinney preaching the funeral sermon.

Deceased was born at St. George’s, Canada in 1843, being the daughter of Robert and Mary Maines. She came to Clark County with her parents in 1854. In 1858 she was married to Louis Rivers. Mr. Rivers built the first house in Marshfield and his wife was the first white woman to live there. To them were born two daughters, Della and Cloie, both deceased.

In 1884 she was married to Durlin McTaggart, who survives her.

Mrs. McTaggart was one of the worthy pioneer women of this locality. The memory of such as she who toiled upon the foundation of our civilization here should be honored. She led a good Christian life, although her infirmities prevented her from attending church services during some years of her life.

She was laid at rest in Neillsville Cemetery beside her daughter Della.
