----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 9/7/1911


Mrs. Maria C. Hewett died Wednesday, Aug. 30, 1911, at the advance age of 81 years and three months.

Deceased was born in Canada near Lake Champlain May 30, 1830. She moved with her parents to Essex County, N.Y., when she was a young girl. She was married in 1852 to George G. Hewett. Five children were born to them. In the spring of 1873 the family moved to Clark County, Wis., and for years lived on what has long been known as the Twenty Six farm in the town of Loyal, now the Carver farm.

Her husband died Nov. 15, 1883. She is survived by four children, one living in New York state, three in Wisconsin, George Hewett of North Milwaukee, Mrs. Max Heaslett and Harry Hewett of Eaton.

The funeral was held at the M. E. Church in Loyal last Saturday, Rev. W. T. Hendren conducting the service with the help of the Methodist pastor at Loyal, Rev. Kildow. The remains were laid to rest in the Loyal Cemetery.

Those who knew Mrs. Hewett longest and best loved her and honored her most. She ranked among the very best of the old stock of pioneers of Clark County. Amidst all the toils and hardships and disappointments of a long life in what was almost a wilderness she was faithful and patient, cheerful and hospitable, contented and helpful.. Quietly and unostentatiously she live a life of simple trust in her Redeemer, from childhood e en down to old age, in full fellowship with all those who believed in and served the same Lord and Master. Truly she was worthy of all the tokens of respect and love that were manifest on the day of her burial, in the songs that were sung, in the prayers that were offered, in the tender words of the aged pastor, and in the floral offerings of rarest beauty and sweetness.
