Miss Clara A. Nokes was born in the state of New York July 9, 1850, and came west with her parents in her early girlhood. In 1867 she was united in marriage to Mr. W. P. Green in Jefferson Co., Wis. On Aug. 17, 1873, she was married to Mr. James Nevill, and for thirteen years they made their home at Cedar Falls, moving from there to Augusta, where Mr. Nevill died June 20, 1904. Two years later she became the wife of Mr. Matt Flinn, and went to live at his home in the town of Alma.

There are mourning her death, here husband, one son, Mr. Fletcher D. Green, one step-daughter, Mrs. H. N. Briggs; two sisters, Mrs. Welch of Montana, and Mrs. John Putman of this place, and one brother, Mr. Wm. Nokes of Winchester, Wis., besides a number of other relatives and a host of friends.
