MRS. J. A. GORDON

Mary Jane Kellogg was born in Mahaska county, Iowa, August 18, 1849. She died at her home near Winterset, Dec. 30, 1915, at the age of 66 years, 4 months and 14 days.

She came with her parents to this county when a little girl and was one of the very early pioneers of Madison county. She was married to J. A. Gordon Sept. 3, 1865 and just a few months ago, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon were permitted to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. Six children were born, two of whom with the husband, survive. They are Elmer Gordon and Mrs. Edna Gilleland, both residing in this county. Ellsworth died May 20, 1910, the others dying in infancy.

Mrs. Gordon united with the First Christian church of Winterset 30 years ago, and remained a faithful member until her death. She was also an active and honored member of the Woman's Relief Corps of this place.
