Clinton MO - We are called upon to chronicle the pasing from this life of Mrs. Mary Mantonza, near Roseland, December 13, 1899. She was born April 8, 1839, in Tennessee and when only a small girl, moved with her parents to Jefferson county, Ill. where she was reared. She married John Lee, July 11, 1861. They had six children, two boys and four girls. The boys preceded their mother to the better land some years ago. Her husband, John Lee, died in 1877, leaving her to battle thru the trials of life with the four little girls. In 1885, she emigrated to Missouri and settled on the farm where she died. About one year later, she married L. Mantonza and, in 1890, he departed this life, leaving her a widow the second time. She united with the Christian church at the age of 16, was a member for 28 years, and in 1895, joined the M. E. church at Oak Grove. Laid to rest at Mt. Olivet.
