Tolford, Julia (27 SEP 1837 - 10 Jul 1921)

Mrs. Julia E. Tolford died at the home of her son, R. H. Tolford, Sunday, July 10th, 1921, after a short illness. She was born Julia E. Jewett at Keysville, Essex Co., N.Y., Sept. 27, 1837, and was 83 years, 10 months and 13 days old at the time of her death. She removed with her parents to Beloit, Wis. at an early age and there she grew to womanhood. She was married to J. W. Tolford at Madison, Sept. 28, 1858, and resided there until 1872 when they moved to Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. That place continued to be their home until her husband died in 1913, when she came to Thorp, Clark County and made her home with her son.

Her ancestors came to America early in its history and some of them fought in the Revolutionary war. She was for many years a member of the Eastern Star at Neillsville, where the most of her active years were spent, and where she made and kept a host of sincere friends. She was of a retiring disposition but was a devoted wife and mother. She was the mother of six children, two of whom died during the Civil War, two since that time and two are surviving, R. H. of Thorp and J. W. Jr. of San Francisco. The funeral service was conducted at the residence Monday afternoon, Rev. George H. Crow officiating, after which the remains were taken to Madison for burial in the family lot, accompanied by Mr. Tolford and son, Frank Tolford.
