Another beloved Mille Lacs county
pioneer answered the final summons

When Mrs. Catherine A. Applegate
succumbed to cancer of the stomach
at her home in this village Tuesday
morning. Mrs. Applegate had been ill
for some time, and the past several
weeks was tenderly cared for by her
daughter, Mrs. E. M. Chapman, of St.

Funeral services were conducted
yesterday afternoon at the Methodist
church by Rev. James A, Geer, and
were largely attended. Interment
was in Oak Knoll cemetery.

Deceased, whose maiden name was
Catherine A. Steeves, was born
at North River, New Brunswick, Canada,
Sept. 21, 1852. She came to Princeton
with her parents in the fall of 1862,
and was here married to Henry
D. Applegate on September 14, 1873.
Mr. Applegate passed over the great
divide 11 years ago.

Mrs. Applegate is survived by a son,
Louis F., of Seattle, Wash., and a
daughter, Mrs. E. M. Chapman, of St.
Cloud. Three sisters and six brothers
also survive, viz: Mrs. Thos. Scribner,
Petitcodiac, New Brunswick, Canada;
Mrs. Mary Rines and Wm. Steeves,
Princeton; Abel H. Steeves, Empress, Canada;
Mrs. John W. Nokes, Cottage Grove, Oregon;
Robt. H. Steeves, Seattle, Wash.; Henry
Steeves and Arthur Steeves, Princeton,
and Fred A. Steeves of Beech, N. D.
Mrs. Applegate was ever ready to
lend a helping hand in connection with
anything tending to promote the welfare
of the village, and was always active
in the Women's Relief association.
She was a loving wife and mother,
a considerate neighbor and numerous
friends will cherish her memory.
