She was united in marriage to George J. Haefner on Nov. 29, 1888, at Rice Lake, where they resided for several years, later moving to farms in Vernon and Monroe counties and in 1915 to a farm at Greenwood. To this union were born five children: Lawson Haefner of Idaho, Mrs. Mildred Purdy of Sparta, Mrs. Percis Vine of Monroe, Melvin Haefner of Sterling, Ill., and Evan, who preceded her in death in 1919. Her husband passed away in 1921.
