MRS. E. H. WILKINS DIES AT HOME IN FLORIDA

Mrs. E. H. Wilkins, nee Lottie Taylor, was born in Tripoli county January 16, 1863, and in 1880 was married to E. H. Wilkins in Minnesota. Sunday, Nov. 8, 1931, she passed away at her home in Orlanda, Florida, at the age of 68 years.

She leaves to mourn, the husband E. H. Wilkins and four children, Oscar of Orlanda, Mrs. Allie Schraufnagel of Colby, Wis., E. H. Wilkins of Malta, Mont., and Edward of Stetsonville. Two sons Lewis and Horace, preceded their mother in death.

When the family came to Wisconsin in the early pioneer days they located about three miles east of Abbotsford where Mr. Wilkins was employed at White’s Mill located on the Eau Plaine river. For a time they lived on a farm near Riverside, later going to Cherokee where Mr. Wilkins was again engaged in mill work. They moved to Abbotsford in 1910 and lived here until 1919 when they located at Stetsonville, from which place they moved to Florida about four years ago.

Funeral services will be held at Colby Saturday, Nov. 14th, with interment in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery.
