Birth: 1867
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Oct. 8, 1871
Peshtigo
Marinette County
Wisconsin, USA

Daughter of J. L. and A. M. Mellen. She and her brother George died in the Peshtigo Fire.

On a marker next to their monument:
"Their nineteen-year-old [James] brother took these two Mellen children to the river. He walked into the icy water up to his neck with a child on each arm. The fierce heat compelled him to keep wetting their hair or dunking their heads under water. This continued for nearly four hours until the flames subsisded and when the older brother brought the children to shore, it was found that both had died of hypothermia."
