The Janesville, (Wis.) Record of October 19th, contains the following item of interest to Beadle county pioneers: “Yesterday noon Mrs. S.E. Gallup closed her eyes in death at the home of her daughter, Mrs. O.J. Wells. Her illness had been of long duration and at the time of her death she was sixty-five years of age. She had resided in Janesville but a few years, her home being formerly at Lakeside, S.D. She leaves four children, two sons and two daughters—John and Mrs. W.Z. Nichols of Lakeside; Chas. E., Medina, Mich.; and Mrs. O.J. Wells of this city. The remains were sent to Lakeside last night for interment.”
