Case, Harriet Benedict (20 Mar 1834 - 27 Jan 1912) 

Mrs. Wellington Case died last Saturday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ted Huckstead on the Ridge, after an illness of about two weeks.  Mrs. Case was born Harriet Benedict in New York State, on March 20, 1834.  She came with her parents to Steuben county, Indiana, later removing to Barrington, Ill.  She was united in marriage to John Pope at Barrington on March 21, 1859, and to this union three children were born, two sons and one daughter, of whom only the daughter survives her parents.  They came to Clark county in 1865, and Mr. Pope died in 1897.  Mrs. Pope was united in marriage to Robert Howard eleven years ago, and 11 months after their marriage Mr. Howard passed away.  In the fall of 1909 Mrs. Howard was married to Wellington Case, and since that time she has made her home at Wisconsin Veteran’s Home at Waupaca and with her daughter, Mrs. Huckstead.  A short time ago she came to Neillsville to visit her daughter and in coming she contracted a severe cold, which caused complications which ended in her death. 

Mrs. Case was a woman of the sturdy pioneer stamp and was well known on the Ridge and in this city for her inherent kindness and womanly characteristics.  She was an excellent neighbor and friend and her demise is sincerely mourned by a large circle of acquaintances.  Mrs. Case was laid to rest Tuesday afternoon in the Neillsville cemetery, Rev. Hendren of Greenwood conducting the services at the Presbyterian church.  Deceased is survived by her husband, her daughter, Mrs. Huckstead, sister, Mrs. Jos. Brown, and brothers, Wallace Benedict, of Barrington, Ill.; John Benedict of Vernon, Neb.; Ira Benedict of Peoria, Kansas; Judson Benedict of Bellwood, Nebraska.  Also by her granddaughter, Miss Florence Huckstead.
