    • 06 Sep 1906 Noble County, Indiana PFP obituary read: Calista
      (Wilkinson) Maybee died Aug. 30; was buried Sept. 1 at Lake
      View. The following was written by herself to be read after her
      decease: I was born Feb. 3, 1841 in North Coshocton, Steuben
      County, N.Y.; married Alonza B. Stetson of Naples, Ontario
      County, N.Y., 1859. Husband started soon after to Henry County,
      Ill. to get a home prepared while I got ready to keep house,
      and one year later in 1869 joined him there, where in less than
      2 years we were again separated by the cruel war. He enlisted
      in Aug. 1862, leaving home Sept. 15, never to return, being
      killed instantly by a shell near Knoxville, Tenn., leaving an
      infant buried in Ill. I went to Lawton, Mich., a widow with a
      young daughter, May, who was afterwards the wife of O. L. Hill,
      to live with my parents, and lived there a few years. Married
      George Maybee of LaGrange in 1868, having lived in northern
      Michigan 8 years. Returned to Kendallville in March 1891.
      Buried daughter May by first husband in May 1893. Had 4
      children by last husband. Buried 2 sons, one eight months and
      one nine years old. (Two daughters survive.) Having written
      this Aug. 20, 1902, I joined the Wesleyan Methodist Church when
      15 years old.
