Note on Husband: Jesse AXTELL

b. April 12, 1838, at Mt. Gilead, Ohio. On Oct. 13, 1859 he married Emeline

Shangle (b. July 6, 1837 d. Aug. 31, 1910) at Denmark, Ohio. His fathed died

when he was only a few months old and his widowed mother with her three small

children was left to face the world with nothing but a small house and a

little tract of cleared land surrounded by heavy timber. In a little log

house on this clearing the family lived the next seventeen years, depending

for their support on the produce of their land. These circumstances compelled

the boy to assume the duties of manhood much before his years would warrant,

and to forego the education he so much craved. In October 1860, taking his

wife, mother and sister, he moved to Tipton, Iowa. In August 1864, he

shouldered a Springfleld rifle and marched to the front with Co. G, 15th Iowa

Inf., was with Sherman on his March to the Sea, rounded up at New York the

next spring. and marched in "The Grand Review" at Washington at the close of

the war. After returning from the war (1866) he moved to Deep River, Iowa,

and engaged in the mercantile business, beginning with four hundred dollars

worth of goods and gradually increased his possessions till 1879, when he

moved to Axtell, Kansas, where he also established himself in the general

merchandise and lumber business. He was Postmaster for many years in Deep

River, Iowa, before going to Kansas. In 1887 he disposed of his interests in

Axtell, Kansas, and moved to Blue Rapids, a nearby town. Here he was

interested in many projects; besides engaging in the lumber business he owned

and operated two farms of 960 acres, stocked with cattle and sheep, was

instrumental in the organization of two large plaster mills, one of which he

was superintendent and the other general manager. He was a life-long

Presbyterian, active in all church work, a prohibitionist in the strictest

sense, a staunch advocate for and a tireless worker for the prohibition

amendment in Kansas, and a close personal friend of Gov. John P. St. John and

co-operated with him in his reform movement. He was full of good works, a

strenuous advocate of pure morals. He was deeply interested in the Axtell

genealogy, and gathered much material for Seth J. Axtell in his work. He went

to Long Beach. Calif., about 1915, where he died June 17, 1920, and was

buried at Blue Rapids, Kansas.
