From the Chatsworth Plaindealer
MRS. MARSHALL (MATILDA JANE PENDLETON) ELLINGWOOD
JULY 11, 1913
Mrs. M.J. Ellingwood passed peacefully into the life beyond on Friday morning, July 4, at the home of her son, Dr. C.V. Ellingwood, in this city, death being the result of the infirmities of age. She had been very feeble most of the summer, and dissolusion was expected by the members of the family, although it was quite a surprise of many of the friends who saw Mrs. Ellingwood upon the streets occasionally until her last illness.
Matilda Jane Pendleton was born June 17, 1830 on Deer Island, New Brunswick. She was united in marriage on June 22, 1852 with Captain Marshall A. Ellingwood, and for many years she accompanied her husband on ocean voyages to foreign countries, having visited almost all parts of the world. In 1871 the family moved to Wisconsin and located upon a farm. There they resided until 1888, when they moved into Whitewater, Wis., where they made their home until the death of Captain Ellingwood in 1898. Since then, although she had made frequent and extended visits with relatives in the east, Mrs. Ellingwood had made her permanent home with her son and family in this city.
Deceased was the mother of two sons, Clarence A., who died in 1905, and Dr. Charles V. Ellingwood, of Chatsworth. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Ethel Ellingwood, of New York, Lula Ellingwood Walrich, of Chicago, and Jennie Ellingwood, of Chatsworth.
Short services were conducted at the Ellingwood home in this city on Saturday, Rev. Albert, of Piper City, assisted by Rev. Gunn, of this city, officiating, and the remains were taken on the evening northbound train to Whitewater, where the interment was made in Hill Side cemetery beside the remains of her husband and son. Funeral services were held in the Hill Side cemetery chapel.
Mrs. Ellingwood's vast travels and natural talents made her a mos interesting woman, and during her residence in Chatsworth she had made many friends, to whom her death causes sadness.
