    Mrs. Elizabeth Nicholson Stockman was born in Lincolnshire, England, August 17, 1834. She came to America when fifteen years of age and was married to John Stockman of the town of Harmony, December 14, 1853. She was the mother of eleven children, seven of whom preceded her to the better land. Those who survive are Robert Stockman of Newville, Wis., John Stockman of Lincoln, Neb., Mrs. Henry Yale of Milton township and Mrs. Dr. Bennett of Beloit, Wis. She is also survived by a half brother, William Meggott of Janesville, Wis., and a half sister, Mrs. Mary Lewis of Michigan.
    Since the death of her husband she has made her home in the summers with her daughter, Mrs. Yale, on the farm, and the winters with the other daughter, Mrs. Bennett of Beloit, where she passed away in the early morning of the 5th of May 1910.
    Mrs. Stockman was a wise, gentle and loving mother and a consistent, earnest and faithful Christian. When quite young she was confirmed in the Episcopal church, but after her marriage she united with the Presbyterian church of Janesville, of which her husband was a member. She greatly appreciated the loving ministry of all her friends, but especially that of her faithful and devoted children and their families for whose success and happiness in life she was always greatly concerned. She was cheerful and hopeful in all the sorrow which came into her life in the death of her companion and seven of their children. She enjoyed life and would have been glad to remain with her dear ones, but when the messenger came to call her home, she was ready to go that she might be ever with the Lord whom she had known and loved for so many years.
    The funeral services were held in the Milton Junction M. E. church on Saturday afternoon May 7, the Pastor officiating. The interment was made in the Milton cemetery and the pall bearers were six nephews, George, West, William, James, Arthur and Josiah Stockman. A. P.
