EARLY ORPHANS HOME WORKER PASSES AWAY - Mrs. Harriet Helen Bolton Dies After Brief Illness - In Ill Health Many Years But Condition Not Grave Until Three Days Ago. Once Taught in City Public Schools: Mrs. Harriet Helen Bolton, widow of J.H. Bolton, one of the first trustees of the Hancock County Children's Home and at one time a teacher in the city public schools, died at the family home, 120 West Lima street, at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon after a three days illness. She had been in ill health for many years and had rapidly declined after the death of her husband which occurred several years ago. The survivors are her daughter, Mrs. Carrie H. Bales, of Homestead, Fla., and Miss Grace Bolton, residing at home; a sister, Mrs. Clara S. Hichols, of Jennings, La, two brothers, Earl E. Sheffield, of Anderson, Ind., and Gene N. Sheffield, of Elk Rapids, Mich. The funeral arrangements have not yet been made. Mrs. Bolton, who was the widow of a post member of the "Fighting Twenty-First" was born in Huron, O., her parents having been Mr. and Mrs. August Sheffield. Her infancy was spent along the shores of Lake Erie, and in early childhood she moved with her parents to Findlay, where she received her education and for several years was a teacher in the city. In her early life she joined the First M.E. church, of which she was always an earnest member. Shortly after the war she was married to Captain Bolton, to which union two daughters were born. The first thirteen years of her married life was spent in Charlotte, Mich, since which time she had resided in this city. Mrs. Bolton was one of the first trustees of the Hancock county Children's Home when the late Mrs. E.P. Jones was president of the organization. The body labored hard to keep the institute self-sustaining, as in those days the Home received no aid from the county. The efforts of the workers resulted in the now permanent home of the orphaned children. Mrs. Bolton was also a member of the Woman's Relief Corps in which she took an active part until her health compelled her to cease the work. Her father and the late J. Rosenberg were the builders of the main portion of the large buildings of the Adams Brothers company, which for many years was the largest structure in Findlay.
