Pitcher, Annie (14 APR 1831 - 19 Jun 1919) Annie Dufford was born April 14, 1831 in Pennsylvania and died Thursday evening Jun 19, 1919 at the age of 88 years, 2 months and 5 days.

She was bereaved of her mother in infancy and had few advantages in childhood and plenty of hear work. At the age of nineteen she was united in marriage with John Wyker. Mr. and Mrs. Wyker worked together in a tailor shop, but finally on account of his poor health they started west, driving through the country and living out of doors and finally settling in St. Joseph, Mo. Mr. Wyker was afflicted with tuberculosis and died during the civil war as a result of exposure in the service in which he had enlisted. To them were born six children, five of who died in childhood, Mrs. Joe Wood of this place, alone surviving.

In 1866 she was united in marriage to Henry Schultz. To them three children were born at St. Joseph, Mo.; Mrs. Lizzie Reynolds of Racine, Minn., Charles and Bert Schultz of Spring Valley, Minn., to which place the family had moved. Mr. Schultz died in Oregon, and thirty-two years ago Mrs. Schultz and her family came to Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., where she has since resided.

Twenty-four years ago she was married for a third time, this time to Charles Henry Pitcher, who passed away Feb. 28, 1911.

Besides the four children above mentioned, there survive her 18 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Pitcher was a faithful industrious woman and had many friends. She joined the Methodist Church at the age of fourteen and continued a faithful member to the time of her death, at which time she was the oldest living member at Neillsville.

The funeral took place Monday at the M. E. Church, Rev. L. B. Colman officiating.
