Darton, Amelia (9 NOV 1853 - 12 SEP 1920)
Mrs. Wm. Darton died at Berthold, N.D. on Monday Sept. 12, 1920, after an illness that has extended over a year.
Amelia Sheldon was born Nov. 9, 1853 at Linden, Sheboygan, Co., Wis., and lived there with her parents until 1872, when she came to Clark County, Wis.. She was a successful teacher in the schools of Sheboygan Co., and also in this county.
In 1875 she was married to Wm. Darton, they making their home in the town of Beaver, Clark County on a farm until about fourteen years ago, when they moved to this village.
Among us all she ranked as a woman of refinement and sympathy, a true Christian and a kind neighbor and friend. Her memory will be on which will last through many years to come.
She is survived by her husband, one daughter, Mrs. Sarah Hillis of Berthold, N.D., and one granddaughter, one daughter having preceded her in death several years ago, besides four sisters, Mrs. L. Hutchins of Loyal, Mrs. Ella Cook, Oregon, Mrs. Betsy Roscow, Idaho, and Mrs. Emily Hollensteiner of Oakland, Cal., besides other relatives.
The funeral services were held at Berthold on Wednesday afternoon, with burial in the Berthold Cemetery.
The family has the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
