Elsie L. Bennett deceased at her home in this city, May 28th, 1893. She was the daughter of Charles and Chloe Holloway, and was born at Hounsfield, in the county of Jefferson, and state of New York, January 23, A. D. 1822. On the 28th of November, 1844, she was married to John R. Bennett, now the judge of the Twelfth judicial circuit court of the state of Wisconsin. In the year 1848 with her husband, she became a resident of Janesville. Wisconsin, then a comparatively new settlement, where she has ever since resided, and where her 'sweet and gentle influence' rendered her coming a blessing, not only in her home and to the immediate family circle of which she till her death had been the acknowledged center and guide, but to all who have had the good fortune to know her. She was the true Christian, imbued by nature with love, faith, hope and charity, wherewith she conquered, and led the way in the 'proper and pleasant paths of life.' These qualities not only afforded us pleasant glimpses of happy domesticity, but shone out brightly in her contact with the world at large and impressing all with her supreme worth in the fulfillment of her mission of virtue, morality, mercy and charity.
