Note on Husband: Charles AXTELL

b. July 28, 1818, at Geneva, N.Y. When a young man, before finishing his

education, he went on a whaling voyage into the south Pacific ocean where he

met with many thrilling and strange adventures. He was put ashore on a lone

island where he nearly perished. After returning home he finished his

collegiaate course, studied theology, was ordained to the Presbyterian

ministry in 1852, and continued until 1886, holding pastorates at Greenfield

and Galena, Ill., Dubuque, Bellevue and Tipton, Iowa, Xenia, Ohio. He was

twice married: (1) to Mary S. Maguire of Indiana, in 1848 (d. Oct. 1849); and

(2) to Elizabeth M. Campbell of Knightstown, Ind., Nov. 1853. He died at

Mankato, Minn., Oct. 31, 1891. Conscientiously Presbyterian, he loved all

Christian people and gave them unqualified fellowship. Bred to scholarly and

even aristocratic associations, his heart went out to all, and he showed a

pastor's care for the most uninviting; his devotions did not degenerate into

pietism. He was a charming companion, one of the most courtly gentlemen in

the social circle. His life was so gentle and the elements so mixed in him

that nature might stand up and say to all the world, "This is a man."
