After the demise of her husband in 1847, she made her home with her children in Indiana and Illinois. She was the mother of nine children, three of whom precceded her in death, and could point with pride on the fifth generation, being at the time a great-great-grandmother. She professed religion in her youth and was always a faithful and conscientious worker in the cause she believed to be right, having worked with Rev. Linley and Mrs. Rood in the first revival ever held in Nokomis, and was instrumental in organizing Center Grove church. At the time of her death she was a pensioner of the war of 1812.
