"The Church Advocate" (Church of God newspaper), Vol . 36, No. 22, p.6, dated 27 Sep 1871, published Lancaster, PA:

GILLETT. Near White Hall, Nemaha county, Kan.; September 7th, 187 1, Mother Gillett, aged 83 years, 10 months and 24 days.

Mother Gillett was born in Massachusetts, October 13, 1787. She was married many years ago, in the state of New York, to Elder John Kilmer, who was a preacher in the Church of God, and by whom she had ten children, from whom have sprung seventy-nine grandchildren, and forty-two
great-grandchildren. This good old mother was formerly a Methodist, of which church she was a member for twenty years, during the period of her life, but for the past twenty-seven years she has been a member of the Church of God.

Eleven years ago, she, with her husband, Father Gillett, emigrated from the State of Michigan to the State of Kansas, where, among her children, she has since resided. Being a firm believer in the doctrine of the Church of God, and possessing much of that faith which was once delivered to the saints, she now, by her godly walk and chaste conversation has taught all her children to
embrace the religion of their mother's God, and lived to see some of her grandsons standing on the walls of Zion, proclaiming salvati on, through Christ, to the children of men.

Through all these long and weary years,
She has led a useful Christian life;
She was a kind and loving mother,
A good, a wise and faithful wife.
Her long pilgrimage is ended,
And she has gone to join the best;
But sweetly memory yet is bleeded
With all her good deeds of the past.
