He was always a well man up to three weeks ago last Sunday when he became ill. He went to St. Olaf’s Hospital a week ago last Monday and for some days seemed to improve rapidly and his friends had every hope of his recovery. He was eager however to be at home again and was removed thither early in the week. Unfavorable symptoms appeared in a few days it was evident that he could not live.

Mr. Kain was a hard working, conscientious man. He was possessed of a thoroughly genial disposition and to meet him was like a burst of sunshine. He met the buffets and smiles of fortune with a cheerfulness that endeared him to all his friends. He was the kindest of neighbors, a good father, husband and brother and devoted to his friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and his death is genuinely and generally regretted.

Jerusha Pettibone Kent

1838-1905

BORN 1838 – DIED 1905

Mrs. Hampton H. Kent

Jerusha Pettibone Kent

The community was shocked this morning by the news of the sudden death of Mrs. H.H. Kent at her home on West Bridge Street. Though for the past month Mrs. Kent had been sick with the grip, her attack was not thought to be serious as at no time was she confined to her bed. Sunday she was able to take dinner at the home of her sister Mrs. P.J. Crane. She spoke of a pain in her chest but ate heartily and seemingly greatly enjoyed the day. At 10 in the evening she arranged her fires and went to Mrs. Connor’s room for a little chat. She retired at 11 o’clock but called Mrs. Connor at 4:30 this morning. She complained of being short of breath and after sitting up a few minutes went to bed again. She expressed a wish to see her sister and Mrs. Connor went at once to call Mrs. Crane but before Mrs. Crane could reach her bed side she was gone.

Jerusha Pettibone was born in Bainbridge October 30, 1838. In May 1870 she was married to Hampton H. Kent. The following year they removed to Austin settling on a farm three miles west of the city on the Turtle. About 1883 they moved into Austin, Mr. Kent engaging in the machine business at a location on Bridge and St. Paul Streets. In October 1891 Mr. Kent died. Mrs. Kent was a member of the Congregational church and for a dozen or fifteen years librarian of the Floral Club library. She was a charter member of the Cosmos Club and entertained the club at its last meeting, Wednesday. She graduated from Oberlin College in the class of ’63. She leaves beside hosts of personal friends, her sister Mrs. P.J. Crane of this city and a brother H.W. Pettibone of Bainbridge, Ohio.

The funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

To those who knew and loved Mrs. Kent it is hard to speak not of our loss. Her life was closely interwoven with the life of Austin. It was impossible to picture her sitting apart from any interest in the church, society or the community. Always active, always progressive, her life of conscious usefulness was sure to be one which will be greatly missed. Her character so strong, yet so lovely and loving was dominated by a will of peculiar tenacity. So clear was she of the alloy of pride that she aroused no oppositions, so guided by good judgment and tempered by conscience that she habitually discriminated between the right and the wrong, the wise and the unwise course. Her conscience in its recognition of a moral question as being above all questions of taste or expediency was like the Puritan of olden times but it did not shut out from her broad sympathies those whose views differed from her own. She was strict with herself but gentle in her judgments of others.

We shall miss her wise council, her helping hand, her dear companionship but more than aught else we shall miss that candor of soul that never wore a mask nor uttered a sentiment that she did not believe. Loving truth and seeking it, her life was an exemplification of its principles.

Hannah Favor (Locke) Little

Hannah Favor (nee Locke) Little

Born 1825 in Columbia, New Hampshire;

Married Samuel Little;

DIED 1905

Obituary

Mrs. Hannah Little

The death of Mrs. Hannah Little occurred at her home on Kenwood Avenue this morning shortly before 9 o’clock. Though she had been in failing health for years and especially had she been broken this winter, she was confined to her bed but a week previous to her death. But the long life of nearly four score years is ended and the weary, loved one rests.

Hannah Favor Locke was born June 23, 1825, in Columbia, N.H. Her ancestors on both sides were of old Revolutionary stock, her forefathers being some of the earliest English settlers of Concord, N.H. When a child she moved with her parents to Chautauqua County, N.Y. where she resided during her girlhood and early womanhood. Here she was married to Samuel Little. They removed to Cedar Falls, Ia. and in 1874 removed to Lyle Township. Here Mr. Little died November 23, 1862. The year after Mrs. Little came to Austin and bought the place on Kenwood Avenue where she has since made her home.

Mrs. Little was a member of the Methodist church since her girlhood but had never united with the Austin church on account of her invalid condition most of the time she has resided here. She was a woman of true Christian character and those who knew her best valued her worth most highly. She leaves no children, in fact she was the last of her immediate family to survive, her sister Mrs. Roberts dying eight years ago. She leaves two nieces, Mrs. Eunice Rice and Mrs. Edward McMan and three nephews, Charlie, Henry and Delbert Roberts, all residing in Lyle town.

One niece, Mrs. Rice who has lived with her aunt almost without interruption since she was a young girl, and has proved all that a loving daughter could have been to her. Tenderly she has cared for her all these years and during her last illness, though sick herself, she would permit none other to minister to her.

The time of the funeral has not yet been announced but will be stated in Saturday’s Herald.

Ellen (Mulbern) McLaughlin

1845-ca1905?

OBITUARY.

Mrs. Ellen M. McLaughlin.

Mrs. McLaughlin died shortly after 1 o’clock this afternoon at the home of her son of Oakland avenue. She had been sick for some years with rheumatic trouble and a week ago complications set in and she died today.

Ellen Mulbern [Mulborn?] was born in Toronto, Canada, September 20, 1845[?]. She was married at Mona Mills[?], Canada in February 18[?]1 to Philip McLaughlin who died in Austin, March 14, 1899. They removed from Toronto to Chicago in 1870, from Chicago to Lyle in 1871, to Emmettsburg, Iowa and in 1883 to Austin, in which place she has resided for many years.

After Mr. McLaughlin’s death she went to Sioux City where her two sons had taken up the physician’s profession and since then she has made her home there, interspersed with frequent visits to her old home in Austin. She spent last winter in California, hoping to regain her health. She has also sought recuperation at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, Colfax Springs and other health resorts. About two weeks ago she came to Austin. She had just completed the building of a beautiful new home in Sioux City and as late as Sunday talked over plans and arrangements of the house with her children. At about 2 o’clock this morning a discouraging change took place and at 4 o’clock she was unconscious remaining so until the time of her death.

She leaves to mourn her loss five sons and one daughter. Daniel of Condo [Cando?], N.D., A.J. of Starkweather, N.D., M.B. of Austin, Miss Elizabeth, Dr. Phil and Dr. Alphonso [Alphonse?] of Sioux City. All the children were with her at the time of her death excepting Dr. Alphonso and A.J. and they will be here for the funeral.

The deceased was a woman whose devotion to her family and children was marked. She concealed her suffering and pain for their sakes and her plans were all for their comfort.

She numbered also a large circle of friends who will be grieved to learn of her death.

Funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow.

In 1861 Mr. McLaughlin moved to Chicago and from there to Lyle, where he conducted a successful grain business. In 1882 he moved to Emmetsberg, Ia.[?], coming to Austin in June, 1883. He engaged in the grain business here and was ably assisted by his son, Michael, who has always been his father’s standby.

The funeral will be held Thursday morning at 10:30 from St. Augustine’s church. Rev. Fr. Devlin[?] will conduct the services.
