Archer, Rosila (1838? - 10 Apr 1921)

Mrs. Levi Archer died at her home in Merrillan Sunday, April 10, 1921, aged 82 years. She was born in Allegheny Co, N.Y., her maiden name being Rosila Straight. She was married to Mr. Archer at Hatfield and moved to their farm south of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., 47 years ago. There Mr. Archer died 32 years ago and after living for a time on the farm, she moved to Neillsville, and later to Merrillan, living a part of the time there and a part with her son, Frank in Racine. She is the last of a large family, twelve brothers and sisters. Mrs. Archer was a lady of culture and refinement. In the days of her health and strength, she was very helpful in the community in every way. She leaves one son, Frank Archer, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held at Merrillan Tuesday, the remains being brought here for burial in the Neillsville Cemetery beside her husband.
