Thanks to Find A Grave contributor pMcP for the following obituary.


Silas Blodgett, a pioneer of Dunn County, now deceased, was born at Camden, Maine, March 21, 1808. He was married in southern Wisconsin, May 26, 1848, to Lavina Stowell, who was born at Windsor, Vt., Oct. 2, 1824. Before coming to Dunn County Mr. and Mrs. Blodgett for several years conducted a tavern or stopping-place for travelers.

Accompanied by several children, they arrived in Dunn County in 1856, locating at Fall City in the town of Spring Brook, where they made their home for ten years. In 1866 they moved to the town of Menomonie, where Mr. Blodgett bought 80 acres of wild railroad land and cleared up a farm, in time becoming a well known and representative citizen.

His death took place on June 6, 1892, his wife, who survived him over 16 years, dying Dec. 20, 1898. They were the parents of six children:
1. Albin C., b. March 7, 1849, now of Siloam Springs, Ark.;
2. Helen 0., b. April 11, 1853, who died May 12, 1886;
