DAMMURT son, d. 1899 Surname: Dammurt Source: The Adams County Press, 01 April 1899, Page 5A very sad and unfortunate accident occurred last Thursday on the Wisconsin River, near Germantown. Mr. and Mrs. DAMMURT, of Hadlock, with two children, crossed over the river in the morning for the purpose of visiting a sister of Mrs. DAMMURT, who resides in Germantown. On their return about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when only a few rods from the west bank of the river, the horse broke through the ice; the same instant the sleigh broke through leaving the occupants in the water.A boy of 12 years rescued himself without aid.Mrs. DAMMURT was holding in her arms a boy of about five years old, and in her struggles she lost hold of him and he was carried under the ice by the water which is very swift at that point. Both Mr. and Mrs. DAMMURT would have perished had not assistance been near. Fortunately their team was also saved.The grief of the poor mother can better be imagined than described. While struggling in the water, she thought her boy was dead, but at least she would have his body, and after her own escape, it was with great difficulty they persuaded her to leave the spot. **From the 15 April 1899 Adams County Press, Page 5 Column 3"Mr. DAMMURT & Family will return to Chicago as soon as their son's body is found." DARROW, Mrs. Eliza Eliza Darrow, d. 1888 Surname: Darrow Source: The Adams County Press, Saturday May 19, 1888, Page 4 Column 3 Mrs. Eliza DARROW of Point Bluff, Wisconsin, died at her home in that place on Saturday May 5, 1888. Since last November she had been a sufferer of cancer of the breast. The pained look that had rested upon her face during the last weeks of suffering, passed away and was replaced by a look of surprised rapture and such radiance that the whole room seemed to be lighted by it; and the voice which before could scarcely utter a sound now broke forth in clear, ringing tones, saying, "Oh, how beautful! How glorious!" If, in the heart of any who saw her spirit leave its earthly temple there had been any doubts or fears as to the certainty of a life beyond, they were all swept away and heaven was revealed to them in beauty and glory. Mrs. DARROW was a calm, quiet woman, patient and kind but firm. Faults perhaps she had (who has not?) but her example of patient endurance and cheerful submission was in itself a daily sermon. Her death was a grand confirmation of the blessed truths and promises of the Bible.[--Mirror-Gazette please copy] DAVID, Lewis Lewis DAVID, d. 1895 Surname: DAVID Source: The Adams County Press, Saturday April 13, 1895, Page 5 Lewis DAVID, the late commander of John Gillispie Post G.

DAVIS, Mrs. Newton Mearcy Robson Davis, 1830 - 1911 Surnames: Church, Cutsforth, Davis, Robson Source: Adams County Press, Saturday 28 January 1911 Mearcy Robson died at her home in South Burr Oak, Wis., Jan. 13, 1911. She was born near Beverly, Yorkshire, England, May 29th, 1830. With her sister she came to America in 1851 and settled in La Grange Co., Indiana. There she was united in marriage to Joseph Cutsforth and to this union six children were born, three dying in infancy. Her husband passed away in November 1875, and on July 29, 1877 she was again married to Newton Davis and they lived in the town of Dekorra, Columbia Co., until 1897, when they moved to their present home. Early in her girlhood days she was a subject of saving grace, and united with the Methodist church. She was always very much interested in its success, and her readiness to labor for it, and also to recognize her Saviour, has been a blessing to mnay and has brought forth much fruit. She lived to see all of her children and many of her grandchildren members of her church. On Dec. 5, 1907 she was stricken with a paralytic shock which caused her great suffering and from which she never fully recovered. Again on Dec. 28, 1910 she suffered another shock and gradually faded until the end. She is survived by the husband, one aged brother, and three children, John Cutsforth of Wyocena, Wis., Edwin Cutsforth and Mrs. Eva Church of this place. Besides these there are eleven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren left to mourn her loss. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." The funeral sermon was preached Sunday afternoon and burial was in the South Burr Oak cemetery. DAVIS Mr. Surname: Davis Source: Adams Co Press, 01 October 1870 Page 3, Column 3 On the 12th of September last William A. Davis, at the ripe age of seventy four years, died at his residence at Davis Corners, in the town of Jackson, in this county. Mr. Davis came to Wisconsin in 1847 from Utica, Michigan, and first settled in the village of Spring Prairie, Walworth county, Wisocnsin, where he resided two years. In 1849 he removed to Adams county and settled what is now Davis' Corners, at which place he continued to reside until he died. In all the relations fo life Mr. Davis bore an unblemished reputation, and fully exemplified the character of "God's noblest work, an honest man." A man of strong convictions, deep affection and kindly impulses he drew to himself the esteem and affection of a large circle of friends and gained the respect of all. In 1843, he lost his wife, a kind, affectionate, devoted woman, and the bereavement cast its shadow over the remainder of his life. Cherishing her memory to the end, his earnest, often expressed desire was that when it should be his turn to pass away his remains might be laid to rest beside her's whose memory was so dear to him , and his wish will be complied with. Peacefully, he passed away. A good man, ripe in years, rich in the affection and respect of his family and a large circle of friends, his allotted earthly task accomplished, has gone to his rest. "Blessed be the dead that die in the Lord; yea saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them." DAWES, James M. James M.

DEAN, Enos Enos Dean, d. 1883 Surnames: Dean, Evans Source: Montello Express June, 30, 1883 The funeral of Enos Dean was held at Oxford on Wednesday June 27. He was buried with Masonic rites. A very appropriate funeral sermon was delivered by Rev. W. P. Hill , who is also a Mason. The clergyman before closing read to the audience the following obituary notice: "Enos Dean was born in Duchess Co., N.Y., in 1805, and died in Oxford, June 25th, 1883. In early life he moved to Boone Co., N.Y., and lived there until 21 years of age. He then moved to Ohio, where he married his first wife, Lucinda Evans. Nine children were the fruit of this marriage, seven of whom are now alive. He came to Adams county in 1856 and lived on his farm until the loss of his wife. Soon after he settled in Oxford, since which time he has made it his home. Mr. Dean was a member of the Baptist church Ohio, and lived in its communion until the church in Oxford went down. He was twice married, and leaves a poor, helpless, blind widow to follow him to her death. As members of a noble fraternity, we know no outward man, and God looks at the heart. If he had his failings, he also had his sunny nooks. He was a man, a friend, a kind father, and made the happiness of his family his chief desire. His last hours were devoted to exhorting his children and setting his house in order; and whatever the past, he is with his God. His chidren follow him and the friends of his youth are passing to a land where all are equal, and where the comers there unto shall enjoy the fruits of earthly labor, through everlasting years."We add that Mr. Dean passed away at a ripe age of 78 years. He was like other men of his class, his life has been checkered, but he was human, not divine. Still he has left behind him a large preponderance of the good, greater even that the average of mankind. Mr. Dean was devoted to the principles of the Masonic order, which embraces all the elements of christian morality known or experienced among men. Mr. Dean had a soft heart which beat in sympathy with those who needed assistance and aid, governed of course by a judgement sometimes at fault, and who hasnot? Masonic charity however demands a a compromise in passing judgement upon the living or dead, as the mantle is always broad and wide enough to cover the foibles of human nature and leave the good and the God-like only to live and be remembered. DEAN, Lucinda Lucinda Dean, d. 1875 Surname: Dean Source: Montello Express Saturday March 13, 1875 The funeral of Mrs. Lucinda Dean, wife of Enos Dean, of Jackson, Adams county was held at the Presbyterian church in this place, on Monday afternoon. Services by Rev. J. F. Ford, assisted by Rev. James Jefferson. An unusually large number of friends and neighbors were present. DeMOTT John John DeMott, 1835 - 1899 Surnames: Campbell, DeMott Source: The Adams County Press, Saturday February 11, 1899 P5C2 DIED--At his home in New Chester, Wisconsin, January 31, 1899, of heart failure, John DeMOTT, aged 64 years and 3 weeks.John DeMOTT was born in the State of New York on the 10th of January, 1835. He grew to manhood in his native State. In 1844, like so many energetic sons of the Empire State, he resolved to seek his fortune in the West, and came to Wisconsin, then a territory just beginning to entertain an ambition for Statehood, and settled in Walworth county. In 1854 he left Walworth county and settled in Adams county, where he ever since resided.In 1857 he was married to Miss Rachel Campbell. The union proved a genial one, and the family that in time gathered about the hearthstone was one of the best known and highly esteemed in the community. The name of "John DeMOTT" became almost a synonym for truth and integrity. A widow and nine children--two sons and seven daughters, and three brothers and sisters, survive him. He was buried at the New Chester Congregational church, Rev. D. J. Stevenson conducting the funeral services, on Friday afternoon, February 2nd. DeMOTT, Lydia Lydia DeMott, 1845 - 1903 Source: The Adams County Press, Saturday Sept 26, 1903 Surnames: Baker, Benedict, Crane, DeMott, Finel, McMahon Lydia Finel was born Nov 21st, 1845, in Columbiana County, Ohio, and died Sept 12, 1903 at her home in Adams county. In 1847 she moved with her parents to Dodge County, Wis., and again in 1855 to Adams Co. Dec 15, 1861, she was joined in marriage to Samuel DeMott, who survives her, along with two daughters, Mrs. F. E. Crane and Mrs. R. E. McMahon, one granddaughter, Mrs. F. L. Waldo, and one grandson, little Sammie. Mrs. DeMott was taken sick in May, but her condition was not considered dangerous until within a few weeks previous to her death. All that medical skill and kind hearts and hands could do, was done to save her life, but of no avail. She quietly passed away Sept. 12. The funeral services were held at the New Chester church on Sunday, conducted by Rev. Taylor of Westfield. The Westfield Choir furnished the singing. The funeral was the largest ever held in this place, over 140 teams following her remains from her home to the church, where a large number had already gathered. The casket was covered with flowers, tokens of esteem from kind friends. Mrs. DeMott was a true and loving wife, a kind and affectionate mother and a kind and thoughtful neighbor. Her whole aim in life seemed to be planning the comfort of others. She was always ready to help in time of sickness or sorrow and always had a kind word of encouragement. Truly, hers was a life well spent. Her mother has been dead a number of years. Her father died about five years ago. During the last few years of his life he made his home with her and was most tenderly cared for. Mrs. DeMott is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Emma Benedict of Salem, Oregon, and Mrs. Sally Baker of Lafayette, Oregon; three brothers, Almond Finel of Park, Kansas; Edward Finel of Armenia, Wisconsin and Thomas Finel of Maud, Washington; besides a number of other relatives and a very large circle of friends. The family has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.
