    January 30, 1890, in Edgerton, Wis., Mrs. Louisa Bentley, aged 71 years.
    She had suffered for months from a cancer, which ended her life. She was the daughter of Adin Burdick, a pioneer settler in Albion, Wis. She was born in 1819, in Brookfield, N. Y., where her father lived in early life. Upon his removal to Wisconsin, she came with him, in 1843, a widow with one child. Four years afterwards she married Wm. P. Bentley, who survives her. They lived until 1872 on a farm two miles south of Edgerton, to which city they then changed their residence. Five children were born to them, all now living in or near Edgerton, and in Wichita, Kan. She joined the Albion Seventh-day Baptist Church soon after it was formed, and occasionally, during later years, she attended services with the Milton Church. She was an affectionate wife, a fond mother, a kindly sister, and a beloved neighbor. Her funeral was held at her home the Sunday following, and was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. J. L. Keller, pastor of the Congregational Church at Edgerton, who was assisted by Pres. Whitford, of Milton College. By request, the text was used, "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with they likeness."
