Carlon, Henrietta (7 Mar 1837 - 4 May 1918)

Henrietta, third daughter of Fayette Mallard and Mariam Hewlitt Mallard, was born at Lower Squankum, Monmouth Co., N.J., March 7, 1837.

When she was three years old her parents removed to Iowa, settling near Maquoketa in Jackson Co. Her she grew to womanhood, and on July 23, 1857 was married to Kinsey Carlon, a native of Pennsylvania.

The following spring Mr. and Mrs. Carlon drove by team 250 miles to their new home near Algona, Iowa, then a new part of the state. For 60 years this has been her home. She is one of the last of the pioneer women to pass away.

Years ago she united with the Congregation Church and has continued a devoted member, always as active as her years and health would permit.

Mrs. Carlon had four children, all of whom are living. They are Mrs. Lavina Arnold, of Morgan Hill, Cal.; Mrs. Josephine Skiff, of Greenwood, Clark County, Wis.; Mrs. Emily Dodge, of Red Rock, Cal., and W. V. Carlon, of Algona, Iowa. The latter three were at her bedside during the last week of her life.

Mrs. Carlon and Mrs. Dodge planned to return to Iowa this spring, but Mrs. Carlon's failing health, resulting in pneumonia, prevented that. Her death occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Skiff, early Saturday morning, May 4th, 1918.

Mrs. Carlon was a cheerful courageous woman, doing well her part in life, and she met the final summons confident and unafraid.

Funeral services were held May 6, 1918 at the home of Mrs. Skiff, Rev. G.W. Longenecker officiating. Interment was made at her old home, Algona, Iowa.
