Mrs. Charles Sebelein, nee, Tillie Agnes Boie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nic Boie, deceased, was born on the old homestead on mile south of the village on May 3, 1862. Here she grew up to young womanhood amid her brothers and sisters. On Sept. 27, 1884 she was joined in wedlock with Charles Sebelein a young man of sterling worth. After residing in Milwaukee for a few years they went into the hotel business in Ouray, Colo. where they made a host of loving friends. They disposed of their hotel business last year at that place and came to Calumet County in September for a visit with relatives. While here they were offered an excellent opportunity and in February took charge of the Chilton Hotel. Mr. Sebelein shortly after took sick and a few weeks ago went to the Mayo Brothers' hospital at Rochester, Minn. where he underwent an operation that has made him feel like a new man. While there he learned of his wife's illness and was able to be at her bedside before she passed away.

Hansen and Fred Matzen of New Holstein, Mrs. Albert Arps, Denver. Colo, Mrs. Hanah Paulsen, Chilton, two brothers, John Boie, Thorpe and William E. Boie of Marshfield, Ore.
