!PARENTS: "Appears from the census to be the daughter of either William, son of Robert; or Orrin, who appears from other web site listings to be the son of John & Pauline, John being the son of Robert and Anna (Whipple) Follett in that case. So at any rate, there is every expectation on my part that Mary is the daughter OR granddaughter of Robert and Anna." --L. & B. Ozinga, 2 Apr 2001

!OBITUARY:

Washington, Kansas, Palladium Dec. 29, 1916

Mary Follet was born Nov. 8th, 1819 at Roxberry, Delaware County, N. Y. , where she grew to womanhood and was married to William Flansburg, Oct. 7th, 1839. From this union eleven children were born. Her husband and five children preceded her to the better land. She became a Christian in childhood and lived such a life as was true to the teachings of the Christ, and those coming in contact with her daily life could not help but be made better. Never in any way did she bring reproach upon the cause she had espoused. In her extreme age, when nearly all else was forgotten, she never forgot to quote passages of scripture from her Bible and was hourly in communion with her Savior in prayer.

Sixty years ago she removed with her husband and children to Henry County, Ill. and from there to Kansas twenty-eight years ago, where she united with the Christian church at Washington in its early days wherein she still retained her membership. The children left to mourn her loss are: John D. Flansburg, Washington, Kansas; Frances C. Decker, Enid, Okla.; Lydia Louise Decker Hollenberg, Kans.; Alice Isabella Whipple, Elk River, Minn.; Mary Janette Emery, Washington, Kansas, and Elva D. Johnson, Morrowville, Kans., with whom she made her home the last eighteen years of her life.

It was re-typed & sent by Goldie McMinn (1896-1980) of Pratt, Kansas.'"
