Mary Naughton
Kay R. shared this information

Death came upon Mrs. Mary Naughton very suddenly on Tuesday morning at her home in the town of Mitchell. Thinking her mother slept rather long the daughter went in to wake her and take her breakfast as usual, but before ten minutes has elapsed life was extinct. She was seventy-two years old and had been ailing the past two years. Ten children as follows survive: Kate, Ellen, Thomas and Joe at home; John of Campbellsport; Anthony of California; Mrs. Henry Mangan, Mrs. John Mangan, Mrs. Ed. Gariety of Mitchell and Mrs. J.F. Murphy of Milwaukee.

The funeral was held Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock from Parnell Catholic church. Rev. Father Fischer conducted the service.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jordan and Jay Brogan of West Allis were in attendance at the funeral.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

On Monday morning, April 12, passed into the higher life from her home in the town of Mitchell, a woman who will be sadly missed by the good people of this community in the person of Mrs. Mary Naughton, who had lived continuously in the town of Mitchell since 1849. Mrs. Naughton whose maiden name was Mary Jordan, was born near that noted and historical town of Killala in Mayo County, Ireland, in 1837, and came with her parents to the United States, when but 3 months old. She lived with her parents in the Eastern states until 1849, when she came with the family to Wisconsin and settled in the town of Mitchell, where she lived until the time of her death.

In 1855, she was married to Anthony Naughton. To this union 15 children were born, 5 of whom died in childhood. She is survived by 4 sons: John of Campbellsport, Thos. of Milwaukee, Anthony of SanFrancisco, Cal., and Joseph, living on the homestead and six daughters: Mesdames John and Henry Mangan and Ed. Gariety of town of Mitchell, Tim Murphy of Milwaukee and Misses Catherine and Ellen, living at home. Two brothers, Henry Jordan of West Allis and John Jordan of Hays city, Kansas, one sister, Miss Bridget Jordan of Howard, South Dakota, also survive.

In the death of Mrs. Naughton, the town of Mitchell has lost another of its heroic spirits, who came early into the wilderness and struggled earnestly and effectively to convert that wilderness into one of the most beautiful and prosperous regions of our great state. Her part was no less heroic service, for in home-making and the rearing and training of a large family of boys and girls, to become honored and worthy members of the Community, she was a complete success, and the children can fervently say: "blessed be her memory."

Mrs. Naughton was by nature both generous and charitable. She was gentle and unobtrusive in disposition and Christ-like in spirit. She was in the true sense a devout christian woman, not so much in words as in soul and good deeds. She was faithful in all duties of life. She was kind and considerate at all times, and ever loving and good and a faithful and devout member of her church. She had been ailing for some time. The end, though calm and peaceful, was at the time entirely unsuspected, and came as a shocking surprise for her relatives and friends, as she was apparently improving. The immediate cause of death was heart failure.

The funeral was held from St. Michael's church in Mitchell last week Thursday. Requiem high Mass was celebrated by Father Fisher, and interment was made in the adjoining cemetery. The pall bearers were B. Donahue, Jas. Reddington, Patrick Slattery, John Murray, Thos. Reilly and John O'Connell. The funeral was directed by James Gilboy.


Anthony Naughton

The Angel of Death {has} visited our community and {taken} from our midst one of {our} cherished friends an honored and highly respected citizen and one of the old pioneer resident settlers of the town of Mitchell, in the person of Anthony Naughton, who fortified by the sacraments of his church, departed this life on Dec. 12, 1906, in the 84th year of his life.

Mr. Naughton was born near the town of Ballina, Mayo County, Ireland, and when but 16 years of age came to America and settled near the city of Presscott, Canada. From there he went to Vermont, where he lived for some years. From there he moved to the town of Portage in the state of New York. In 1849, in company with his brother-in-law, Henry Franey, he came to Wisconsin and settled in the unbroken wilderness in the town of Mitchell, on the farm on which he continuously lived until the time of his death. He experienced hardships suffered by the first settlers but by hard work and honest industry, he succeeded in accumulating a competency worthy of his efforts.

In 1854, he was married to Miss Mary Jordan of the town of Mitchell. Of this union 15 children were born, five of them dying in infancy and youth. He is survived by his wife, four sons and six daughters as follows: Mrs. Timothy Murphy of Milwaukee, Mesdames John Mangan and Edward Gerity of the town of Mitchell, Mrs. Henry Mangan of Osceola, John of Campbellsport, Thomas of Milwaukee, Anthony of San Francisco, Joseph and Misses Catharine and Ellen, living at home. At his bedside at the time of his death were his wife, Mesdames John and Henry Mangan, Mrs. Gerity, his son, Joseph and the Misses Catharine and Ellen.

Mr. Naughton had ailed only a few days. His death is attributed to heart failure. His mental faculties were unimpaired to the last moment. As one of the first pioneer settlers of the town of Mitchell he took a large and active part in its development. He saw the town grow from the home of the Indian, an unbroken wilderness to become as today, a beautiful farming country of highly cultivated farms dotted with luxurious homes and massive farm buildings which he and such as he helped to build up. "Blessed be the memory to such men." He is the last of the old "forty-niners" of western Mitchell. He and his estimable wife reared a fine and interesting family of sturdy men and women, the members of whom are useful and honored citizens of this and other states. In religion, Mr. Naughton was a Catholic, a faithful member and gave liberally for its support. He was a man of {Article cut off}.

Had Served as Postmaster, Republican County Committeeman and as Bank Director Andrew Noll, for many years identified with the hardware and real estate business in this city, died at his home, 75 Brooklyn Heights, shortly before noon Tuesday.

Later he sold out to his brother, Jacob Noll, Anton Egerer and Edward Plank.
