Inman, Lelilah. Lelilah Applegate Inman ied at the home of her daughter in the town of Washington, on the 20th day of April, 1902, Mrs. Lelilah Applegate Inman, aged 87 years 6 months and 24 days. Mrs. Inman was born in the town of Newton, Sussex Co., New Jersey, November 26, 1814. The family move to Nescopeck, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Here Mrs. Inman became acquainted with R. S. Inman, whom she married in 1833. A few years later another move was made, this time settling in Rock., Wisconsin, a little west of the city of Janesville, in 1841. Still the pioneer spirit was not satisfied and thirteen years later in the fall of 1854 the Inman family settled in the town of Washington, Sauk Co, Wisconsin, which place has been the home of Mrs. Inman with but one short interval, ever since, that interval of two years being spent in San Jose, California, with her daughter, Clara. Mrs. Inman early in life united with the M. E. Church and as death drew near rejoiced in the thought of entering into the reward of a well spent life. Of the marriage thirteen children were born, all but one having attained manhood or womanhood. Seven of whom are still living to mourn her loss. Cyprian residing in Catlin, Washington; Sarah M. Roberts, with whom she was living at the time of her death; Peter, living in Rodney, Ia; Burt, whose home is in Milton, Oregon; Casildea Cary of Tracy, Minn.; Clara A. Baldwin of Aronas, Calif; and Clarence Applegate Inman of Creston, WA; Of the children the two daughters, Sarah M and Clara A were with her at the time of her death. Of the boys four of them did good service in the late Civil War, Israel in the 3rd. Wis Vol Inf; Cyprian whose regiment is forgotten by the writer and Richard in the 3rd Wis Vol Inf. By a curious coincidence her funeral was held in the Loganville school house on the anniversary of the funeral of her son Richard just thirty years ago. The writer wishes to add his testimony to the universal respect and esteem in which Mrs. Inman was held by her neighbors and friends. Kind and sympathetic in nature, she was a universal favorite of the young people far and near, who were sure to have a hearty welcome and a God speed from her
