Mrs. Jane A. Way was born in Hancock County, Illinois, on the 14th day of April, 1842. She was the daughter of Almon W. and Lois H. {Cutler}Sherman and is the wife of Mr. Henry Way who came to Becker County in the summer of 1868, and she is entitled to the honor of being the oldest white settler in point of residence of her sex now living in Becker County.
Mrs. Way has had her full measure of frontier life, having braved the dangers incident to the settlement of a new country in three or four different states.
She has been the mother of seven children: viz., Henry A., Pliny A., Lois Dora, Nellie C., Fanny R., Clara D. and Arra Ann. Of these seven only Nellie, Fanny and Arra survive. All three are married.
Mrs. Way is now enjoying the fruits of a busy and eventful life with her husband at Osage, in a quiet and comfortable home, surrounded by everything necessary to make life comfortable in her mature years.
