    Nettie Martha Lattin, daughter of Richmond E. and Martha Calkins Lattin was born in Fox Lake, Wisconsin, February 15, 1861. Her mother died when she was only two and one half years old and she and her older brother went to live with their grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Calkins. She attended the district school and spent one year at Downer College, Fox Lake.
    In October 1878 she went with her grandparents and brother to Freeborn, Minnesota where they resided for one year. In the fall of 1879 they located at Winnebago City, Minn., where she made her home until November 10th, 1886 when she was united in marriage to George K. Butts of Milton Junction, where she has since made her home. To this union three children three children were born, Dora Lattin, Lois Catherine, and Roy Elmo.
    Mrs. Butts was a member of the Methodist church for forty-twp years and always took an active part in the church work and the Sunday School until her health failed and she was obliged to give it up.
    Mrs. Butts had been an invalid for several years. On March 8th of this year she had to take to her bed where she has been confined most of the time since, gradually growing weaker. On Monday she seemed to feel brighter and visited at some length with her brother just before dinner. In the afternoon she conversed with different members of the family and then went to sleep. About four o'clock one of her daughters went to the bed to see if she was comfortable and found that she had passed peacefully away while she slept.
    Mrs. Butts was a great lover of flowers and her home, and always enjoyed working in her flower garden. Therefore, how fitting that her friends should show their esteem by sending the many beautiful floral offerings which they did.
    She is survived by her husband and her two daughters Dora and Lois, one brother George P. Lattin of Freeborn, Minnesota; one half brother Roy E. Lattin and her step-mother Jennie E. Lattin, both of Smith Center, Kansas. Her little boy Roy Elmo passed away in infancy.
    Private funeral services were held at the home at 2:30 Wednesday, Sept. 11. At the request of the deceased, Rev. S. A. Sheard of Amherst, Wis., a former pastor and friend of the family, officiated. Music was by a mixed quartet composed of Mrs. Ida M. Jeffries, Miss Gertrude Cramp, Messrs. G. A. Cramp and K. Lima. Burial was made in the Milton Junction cemetery.

Butts, Delavan; Miss Dena Butts, Mrs. Ella Peck, Misses Maude and Etta Peck, Edgerton; Mr. and Mrs. George Parker, Madison; Mrs. Nettie Wallace, Janesville; Mr. and Mrs. Theo.
