The remains of Mrs. Kate Inman were brought here last Thursday evening from Walsenberg, Colo., where she passed away Dec. 29 at the home of her son.

Kate Davis(*) was born at Lockport, Ill., March 21, 1853, and passed away Dec. 29, 1928, at the age of 75 years and 9 months.

She was married to Chester W. Inman, of O'Brien county, in 1869. To this union five sons and three daughters were born. There are living now four sons and one daughter, Mr. Inman died in 1899. Since that time the family has been scattered and Mrs. Inman had made her home with her children, but the last few years she had lived with her son Frank at Missoula, Mont.

She was a member of the Eastern Star lodge at Missoula and a member of the W.R.C. at Dell Rapids, S.D. She leaves to mourn a sister, Mrs. Alice Wilber, of Armour, S.D., and a half sister, Mrs. J.J. Cavanaugh, of Dell Rapids, S.D.

Her son, Roy Inman, of Gardner, Colo., accompanied the body to this city and remained for the services.

Major Inman, husband of Mrs. Inman, was one of the first settlers of O'Brien county, coming here sometime in the 60's. In the early days Mr. and Mrs. Inman farmed in Lincoln and Grant townships and owned homesteads in this county. Major Inman served in the army during the Civil War and was a member of the G.A.R. post here. He was buried in the Hartley cemetery.

Only one of the Inman girls is left at this time. Madge Inman Lane lives at Seattle, Wash.

Four sons remain to mourn the loss of their mother, Roy Inman, of Gardiner, Colo.; Chester, of Halfmoon Bay, Calif.; Frank Inman, of Missoula, Mont.; and Ben Inman, of Portland. Ore. Frank Inman, the son with whom Mrs. Inman made her home a large part of the time, is a conductor of the Great Northern Railway.

Golden Sheaf Chapter, O.E.S., had charge of the services and Mrs. Inman's body was laid to rest beside that of her husband in Pleasant View cemetery.

(*) Transcriber's Note: Find-a-grave records indicate that Kate Inman's maiden name was Baker not Davis.
