Eva Bullen, the eldest daughter of David and Hannah Bullen, was born September 28, 1868, and attended public school at Arlington, later being graduated from the Poynette high school. She had taught school several years in Marathon county and was married October 18, 1890, to Harvey Wescott who lived on a farm near Unity and where she since has made her home.
She had been in poor health since last summer and was taken to the hospital at Marshfield the 31st of January where she has been during the past five weeks. Her illness was accompanied with great suffering. All that medical attention and tender ministries of loving hands was of no avail. She died in the faith and hope of a glorious resurrection.
