French, Sarah Abigail Seavey (March 6, 1829 - May 6, 1911) 

Sarah Abigail Seavey was born in Farmington, N.H., on March 6, 1829.  She was united in marriage to Henry D. French on April 11, 1854, and they came directly to Monticello, Wis.  In 1871 they came to Clark County and settled on a farm south of this city, where they made their home until about four years ago when feeble health compelled Mrs. French to leave the farm and she came to this city and has since resided with her daughter, Mrs. Carl Stange.  She died last Saturday afternoon. 

Mrs. French was the mother of four children, all of whom, with their father, survive her.  The children are Mrs. Mary Jurney of New Richmond, Rinaldo L. French of the home farm, Albert French of La Crosse and Mrs. Carl Stange. 

Mrs. French was widely known in this vicinity because of her long residence here and she won to herself a large circle of dear friends by her womanly characteristics and charitable inclinations.  She was at all times pleasant in demeanor and Christian in her treatment of associates. 

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Burrows officiating and interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery. 

Albert French and wife were here to attend the funeral.
