They moved to Grundy Center and this place has since been her home. Mr. Suttman died on June 8, 1900. To this union seven children were born, five sons and two daughters. They are Fred of San Francisco, John G. of Herman, Minn., Theo of Oklahoma City and Paul, Ralph and Mrs. Emery Davis of this place. One daughter, Lillian, passed away July 23, 1908.
