Good Woman Gone
Receiving the news late we could, last week but briefly mention the death of Mrs. Julia Grant who died at her home in Paddock on Nov. 18th. Mrs. Grant, familiarly known to a horde of acquaintances as Grandma, was one of the early pioneers of this locality. She was a woman of sterling character held in the highest respect by all who knew her and will be sorley missed. Below we give the particulars of her most useful life as written by one who has known her for many years:
Julia Ann Earl was born in Oneida county, N.Y., October 5th., 1821 and died November 18, 1913. She married in 1842 to Charles Francis Grant. Soon after their marriage they came to Wisconsin, from there to Iowa, where they lived until 33 years ago, when they immigrated to Paddock, Minn., where she has since resided. She survived her husband 23 years. Four children were born to bless their union, namely: Mrs. Mary Bryan of McLeod, N. D., John and David, who live in Paddock, and William who died two years ago at his in Iowa.
Having always been a devoted Christian, a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor , she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She joined the Methodist Episcopal church at an early age and was great helper in the church as long as her health permitted. She was one of five generations, having three living children six grand children, twenty greatgrand children and five great great grand children.
Funeral services were held at the home of her son John on Friday at 1:30 o'clock Rev. Stokes officiating. She was laid to rest in the Paddock cemetery beside her husband.
