Bakeman, Sarah J. (21 DEC 1844 - 4 Apr 1917)

Sarah J. Smith was born in Pittsburgh, Pa., Dec. 21, 1844, and when she was twelve years of age the family of which she was the oldest, moved to Missouri. After a few years in that state they moved to Illinois and thence to Wisconsin, settling near Black River Falls. On Christmas Day, 1872, she united in marriage with Mr. Charles Bakeman, and they lived nearly all their married life in and about Humbird, Clark County, Wis. Mr. Bakeman died in 1911, and since then the wife made her home alone in the little cottage in this village. One child was born to this union, which died at about two years of age. Mrs. Bakeman was ill only about a week, and died at the home of her brother D. E. Smith, on Wednesday,, April 4, 1917. There are left to mourn her death, seven brothers and two sisters, John, Albert, David, Steven, Charles, Frank, Mrs. Emma Eisenhart, all residing in this village and the immediate vicinity, James whose home is in North Dakota, and Mrs. Mary Gregor, whose home is in the state of Washington. The deceased is the first one of the family of ten children to pass to the Great Beyond.

Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church last Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Witherbee, and the burial was in the family lot in the Garden Valley Cemetery.
