Horton, Olive M. (2 FEB 1849 - 11 JUL 1921)

Mrs. Chas. M. Horton died at her home near Dells Dam, Clark County, Wis., in the town of Levis, July 11, 1921, at 4:30 in the afternoon. She had not been in strong health for some time and recently had a stroke of paralysis, which was the immediate cause of her death.

Deceased, whose maiden name was Olive M. DePeu, was born in the State of New York, Feb. 2, 1849. She grew to womanhood there and was married to Charles M. Horton July 28, 1867. They came to Wisconsin in Dec. 1880, stopping first at Merrillan. Two years later they came to Dells Dam and settled on a farm, which has been their home ever since. She was a woman possessed of the fine home qualities, a good wife and mother, a helpful neighbor, giving of her thought and energy for the good of her home and family and community. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church and lived the life of a faithful and devoted Christian. She is survived by her aged husband, three sons, William A., Victor H., and Melville Hortorn, all living at Dells Dam, and one daughter, Emily S. (Mrs. Claude Schilling) of Altoona.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the Dells Dam Presbyterian Church, Rev. A.A. DuBois of Neillsville preaching the funeral sermon. Burial took place in the Dells Dam Cemetery.
