Y., after her marriage, until the death of her husband in 1877, and for a time after that with her son Frederick; later she went to live with her second son, Mahlon, in St. Paul. It is said that as an infant she was unusually small, and she was always slight and frail looking, but she lived far beyond the span of life of the nine brothers and sisters who had preceded her to the other world, and after all died as the result of a fall from a window, at the age of seventy-eight.
