Hattie Ella Kenyon was born near Coldwater, Michigan, December 20, 1858, and died at her home near Keeline, Wyoming, September 7, 1933, at the age of 74 years, 9 months and 17 days.
Early in life she united with the Baptist Church of Jesup, Iowa, and throughout her long life she was an active worker in the church and Sunday school. On moving to Wyoming she united with the Christian Church at Jireh.
She was united in marriage to Mr. Frank Kelley, July 16th, 1878, at the farm home of her parents near Jesup, Iowa. With her husband she moved to the western part of Iowa, then later to South Dakota, and 25 years ago the family came to her late home in Wyoming, where she has gathered about her a host of friends.
Her life was spent largely on the frontier, where she loyally and lovingly aided her husband and children in the labors and trials inherent in pioneering. While she was in declining health for a number of years, her last illness was of short duration, and she peacefully fell asleep in her Lord, whom she had so conscientiously served.
She is survived by her husband and five children, two sons and three daughters, a brother and three grandsons, and numerous friends.
