  • Notes 
    • Obituary:

      Source unknown. Keziah Jane Newlun Woods Wirts was born in Guernsey County, Ohio, August 9, 1849. At the age of five years she moved with her parents to Illinois and two years later they came to Vernon County, Wisconsin, settling near Springville. Two years were spent there before the family moved to their homestead in Webster Township, where she lived until her marriage with Marvin Woods in the spring of 1869. To this union was born one child. A few years late she was united in marriage to William Wirts and moved to a farm joining her father's where she has since made her home. Ten children were born to them, eight of whom are still living, two having died in early childhood, and another, Mrs. William Jordan, in June 1903. Everything that willing hands could do or medical skill suggest was done for her, but human help proved of no avail and she quietly breathed her life away at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Decmeber 18, 1918 at the age of 69 years, 4 months and 9 days, after an illness lasting nearly four weeks. She was a good neighbor and a kid indulgent mother. Eight children are left to mourn her loss: Mrs. James McHerny of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, Mansel Wirts of Rochester, Minnesota; Mrs. Carl Smith of LaFarge; Mrs. David Hayden of Vancouver, B. C., Milton, James and Monroe Wirts all of this community, and Mrs. Ossie Frye of Viola, Wisconsin. She was laid to rest beside her husband in the Rockton Cemetery.
