Note on Husband: Frederick LaVey AXTELL

b. June 30, 1871 at Janesville, Iowa, when only a lad his parents moved from

Janesville to Siloam Springs, Ark. Frederick was early possessed with the

desire to become a dentist, and not all the persuasion of his father could

change his mind. His father was a banker and farmer and wanted his son to

follow the banking profession, but so determined to have a dental education

that he and his brother Everett made the trip back to Iowa, driving a team of

horses and sleeping under the wagon at night, he entered the Upper Iowa

University, worked his own way through the Dental College at Northwestern

University and graduated in 1896, and soon after went to South Bend, Ind.,

where he established a dental practice which continued for 44 years, until

his death. On May 7, 1901 he married Laura S. Wert at South Bend. He was a

charter member of the Trinity Methodist Church of South Bend, which had its

beginning in his home, he was a member of the official board from its

organization in 1910 until his death. His church and his family were his

chief interests in life. His leisure time was spent with his family and his

old red Ford of 1906 model which he bought from Henry Ford in person, and

which he drove at the amazing speed of 16 miles per hour. As the family grew,

the car was modernized and with the aid of a trailer he made trips from coast

to coast and from Canada to Mexico. He died Oct. 8, 1940 at the home of his

daughter Mildred, in Montclair, N.J., his widow is living in the old home in

South Bend.
