Langley, Harriet (2 JUN 1853 - 13 MAY 1909)

Mrs. Harriet Langley died at the home of her niece at Christie last Thursday, May 13, 1909, at the age of nearly 56 years.

The funeral took place Saturday, the remains being laid to rest in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Mrs. Harriet Adelia Langley was born in Indiana on June 2, 1863, and was a daughter of Curtis and Sarah Markham.

She came to Wisconsin when at the age of twelve years, remaining until she was twenty years old. She then went back to Indiana where she was married two years later to William A. Langley, who died eight years ago. Of this union seven children were born, one son and six daughters, only three of those being able to attend the funeral.

About three years ago last February she went to Missouri to take care of her father, his wife having died in October. She stayed there until Mr. Markham died last September, when she returned here.

She had been living with her niece at Christie, Clark County, Wis. for some time. Her health had been very poor since coming back to Wisconsin and she grew steadily worse, and suffered a great deal until death came to her relief May 13, 1909. She was a kind and loving mother, and will be missed by all who knew her.
