Mrs. James Ashton, residing on High street, died on Thursday morning after a
protracted illness. More than a year ago, Mrs. Ashton had the misfortune to
dislocate her shoulder and while still nursing the fracture, on December 14
was stricken with apoplexy, which was the immediate cause of her death. On
the night preceding her death, Mr. Ashton had been attending her until 3
o’clock when he retired and her death was not discovered until he visited
her room later in the morning.

She was a native of England, her maiden name being Jane Adelaide Martin and
was born at Holbeach, Lincolnshire, in June 1837. She was united in
marriage with James Ashton at Holbeach, May 15, 1861. They came to America
in 1866, and lived in Green county, Wisconsin, and Stevenson county,
Illinois, before coming to this county, where they have resided for the past
twenty-five years. Besides her husband, she leaves two daughters, Mrs. Geo.
Flickinger and Mrs. Michael Ferguson, who reside in this city.

Mrs. Ashton was a good Christian woman, a loving wife, and kind mother. She
was a member of the First Methodist church and the funeral services will be
held there on Sunday afternoon, the funeral cortege leaving the family
residence at 2 o’clock.
