In 1868 she married A Kouhns, now deceased and since 1871 she has lived in Boone county. For the past fifteen years she has been a resident of Ogden. Mrs Kouhns had five children: Laura who married A E Yarges, who farms in Nebraska, Lucy the wife of Al Treloar, a farmer in Boone county, Ruben who follows the same line of occuaption in this county, Margaret who died in 1904, and Montie who died in infancy.

Mrs Kouhns gives her adherence to the Baptist church, in the work of which she takes a deep and helpful interest.
