March, Ruth E. (6 MAR 1839 - 11 MAR 1920)

Ruth Elizabeth Knapp was born March 6, 1839 in Eastern Canada. June 4, 1856 she was united in marriage to Mills March, and 8 years later they came to this country, coming first to Michigan and then to Wisconsin. To them were born ten children, four of who survive, Mrs. Johnson of Chetek, Mrs. Elmer Hull of Belleville, Ralph March and Mrs. William Waterman of this place (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.) Her husband preceded her in death, passing away Oct. 29, 1899, at Decorah, Iowa. Mrs. March passed away March 11, 1920, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Waterman, where she had been living for two years. She came of a religious family counting among her relatives seven preachers and was herself for a great many years a faithful member and earnest worker in the Methodist Church. Even in the feebleness of age she delighted to talk of the work of the church and earnestly sought to do something to help. Funeral services were held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Waterman, March 15th, at one o'clock p.m., rev. L. B. Colman officiating, and interment being in the Grant Cemetery. Relatives who attended the funeral from out of town were Mrs. Johnson of Chetek, Mrs. Elmer Hull of Belleville and Mrs. Carl Wipfle, a niece of Grand Rapids.
