In speaking of these early pioneers we must not forget the women who also shared the early hardships with the men. Great credit is due them for the assistance rendered in settling the communities. Mrs. Jane Sugden Coats, sister of Mr. Sugden, lived across the street from my home and I have heard her relate her pioneer experiences. She was a very ambitious, capable woman, who immigrated to Mukwonago, Wis., in 1836, as previously stated, married Thomas Coats March 23rd, 1840, and began housekeeping in a log house. She was left a widow in 1865 with eight children. She remained on her 280-acre, well improved farm until her family grew to manhood and womanhood, conducting it very successfully. After her brother's death, she bought his residence and moved to North Prairie in 1887 where she lived the remainder of her days. She loved to tell of early, struggles and the scant supply of provisions, potatoes eaten without salt and cooking in a shanty under a noble burr oak tree which still spreads its branches over the family roof. Perhaps no family endured more of the actual suffering and privations than this heroic family. Too much praise cannot be given this noble, faithful neighbor, who lived amid the many comforts which she rightfully deserved to the advanced age of 90 years. She was born January 3, 1823, and died June 8, 1913, interment at North Prairie cemetery near her brother, Thomas Sugden.
