McTaggart, Mina (1843 – 16 Nov 1915)

Mrs. Mina McTaggart died at Marshfield Nov. 16, 1915.

Deceased was a daughter of Robert and Mary Mary Maines, born in St. Georges, Canada, in 1843, coming to Clark County with her parents in 1854. For thirty years she was a resident of Neillsville. She was united in marriage to Louis Rivers in 1858. To this union two daughters, Della and Cloie, both deceased, were born.

In 1884 she was united in marriage to Durlin McTaggart, who is left to mourn her death.

Mrs. McTaggart was one of the worthy pioneer women of this locality, being the first white woman who settled in Marshfield. The memory of such as she, who toiled on the foundation of civilization in this vicinity, should be honored. She was not able to attend church regularly, but lived a good Christian life.

The remains were laid to rest in Neillsville Cemetery by the side of her daughter, Della.
