Demouth, Cordelia E. (29 Aug. 1834 - 23 March 1923)

Mrs. Cordelia Demouth, whose death occurred March 23, 1923, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. H. Nutting in Park Falls, was born at Ornell, Vermont, Aug. 29, 1834. Her maiden name was Cordelia E. Martindale. When 11 years of age, she came with her parents to Calumet County, Wisconsin. There she grew to womanhood, and on Sept. 25, 1861, she was married to Jacob Demouth. In 1871 they came to Clark County and started on a new farm near Christie, and there they passed through all the struggles and privations of pioneers. Seventeen years ago Mr. Demouth died. Some years ago Mrs. Demouth went west and had a new pioneer experience of taking a claim and living for a time on the prairies. Recent years she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Nutting of Park Falls.

Of the seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. Demouth, five preceded the mother in death. She leaves one son Samuel L. Demouth of Ballentine, Montana; one daughter, Lottie, Mrs. C. H. Nutting of Park Falls, 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

She was a member of the M. E. church for many years, a faithful, consistent Christian.

The funeral was held March 27, at Christie, Rev. Bickles of Greenwood officiating.
