      On April 10, 1911, Caroline A. Stoner died at Mancelona, age 86-5-10, of acute bronchitis. Born Ohio, daughter of James Gilkinson and Nancy Coffinburg.

      __________________________________________________________________

      Microfile of Mancelona Herald, of 4-13-1911, Mancelona library

      Mrs. Caroline Stoner died Monday morning, April 10, at the residence of Joseph Burkholder, 3 miles north of town, and although she had reached the advanced age of 86 years, 5 months and 10 days, death was somewhat of a surprise to her children, her illness being very brief.

      Mrs. Stoner's maiden name was Caroline Ann Gilkison and she was born in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1824. When 18 years of age she came with her parents to Centerville, Mich., where she was married to John Putman, who died two years later. She then went to Gloversville, N.Y., where in 1849 she was married to John Stoner.

      She went with him to Lagrange County, Ind., where they lived until his death in 1863, which resulted from illness incurred in the civil war. She had one child by her first husband, which died in infancy.

      Four children were born to her second marriage, three of whom are living, Mesdames Joseph Burkholder and T. E. Niles of Mancelona, and James C. Stoner, former of this place, but now of Orange,California. Mrs. Lucia Hervey, another daughter, died in California some 23 years ago.

      Mrs. Stoner was for several years a resident of Mancelona until she went to make her home with her daughters upon the farm. She was a Christian woman of estimable character and died in the triumphs of the faith. The funeral services will be held today, Thursday, at 2:30 o'clock at the home where she died and will be in charge of the pastor, Rev. W. W. Lamport. Interment will [take] place in the village cemetery.

      Caroline Gilkison, daughter of James and Nancy, took care of her father and mother in their declining years. Her mother lost her mind in her declining years and at times was quite violent. Neighbors advised the husband to take his wife to an asylum, but he would never consent to do that. He passed out of this world before his wife and he told his daughter, Caroline, that his greatest sorrow was in leaving Nancy behind. Caroline promised that she would always care for her mother and would never let her go to an asylum. James Gilkison had a little straight jacket that he used to put on his wife Nancy when she became violent. She and he were both strict church members and the church was very near their home, but he seldom attended on account of his wife's condition. She was a very beautiful singer.
