Gotchy, Cynthia S. (25 JUL 1841 - 7 MAY 1901)

Cynthia S. Stow was born July 25th, 1841, at Geneva, Ohio, and came with her parents to Wisconsin, in 1846, settling in Washington Co., where they made their home until 1861, when they removed to Loyal, Clark Co. She was united in marriage with I.C. Gotchy, Sept. 1st, 1867, and to this union there were born two children, Laura (Mrs. A.C. Finn of Thorp, Clark Co.), and Albert, both of whom survive her. In 1873 they removed to Colby, where they have since made their home, principally, though for short periods they have resided in Kansas and other places. About three years ago they moved to Loyal, but returned to Colby, Sept. 1st, 1900.

She was an enthusiastic member of I.N. Earl Corps, No. 6, W.R.C., and that society attended the funeral in a body, and the pallbearers were six old soldiers.

The funeral was held from the M.E. Church, Thursday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J.A. Hill, assisted by Rev. E.G. Vischer, and was largely attended, the church being literally packed. The Relief Corps took part in the funeral services, both at the church and the cemetery, using their beautiful burial service.

Mrs. Gotchy was a kind, lovable woman, highly respected by all who know her. She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a conscientious Christian woman; one of that kind that the world is better for her having lived.
