    Mrs. Theresa Colgrove Lawton, daughter of David and Eunice Colgrove, was born near Nile, N. Y., on July 31, 1847, and passed away at her home March 15, 1932.
    When a small child, she with her parents and two sisters went to Willow Springs near Utica, Wis. She was the last survivor of her father's family; the two sisters preceded her in death in 1926.
    She was married August 20, 1866, to Edward T. Lawton, a veteran of the Civil War. To this union were born six children; a daughter died in infancy and her son, Wellton, in 1921. Her husband passed away November 30, 1912. Four children are left to mourn her loss. They are: Mrs. Liniel Lewis of Dodge Center, Minn.; Wyman A. and David E. of New Auburn, Minn.; and Mrs. Eunice Kinney of Barnum, Wis. Also six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
    She was baptized and became a member of the Utica, Wis., Church, when a girl. During the winter of 1868 she went with her husband and baby daughter to New Auburn, Minn., settling on the place which has since been her home. Her church membership was transferred to the New Auburn Seventh Day Baptist Church, where she was a faithful member until the church was disorganized [ca 1921]. She did not join with another church after her home church was gone.
    Her death marked the passing of the last Sabbath keeper at New Auburn, Minn., and she was laid to rest in the beautiful High Island Cemetery beside her husband and near many other loved ones. C. B.
