My great-grandmother. She left a husband and three young children, who also mourned the loss of a baby daughter/ sister.

Married to Karl August Ferdinand Behnke on August 12, 1899. They had four children: Robert Behnke, Herbert Behnke, Helena Behnke, and May Behnke. Adelia died from infection shortly after May's birth (and subsequent death) in 1909. My grandmother Helena used to say she could remember her mother sitting with May's little tiny casket on her lap.

Adelia was born to Gardner Weston and Ernestine Sell Weston in Dodge County, WI.
