Probable suicide

Neillsville County Republican and Press - October 10, 1907

Sunday morning the body of Mrs. Charlotte Mills was found in Black River near her home west of Christie, by her son Claude Mills, who had gone in search of her.  She left home Friday.  As she often spends a day or two with certain of the neighbors, nothing was thought of her absence until Saturday night.  As she did not return Claude made a search for her, but failing to find her waited till daylight and continued the search.  Walking along the river bank he found her shawl and soon after discovered her body in quite shallow water.  Since her husband's death her health has been very poor and she has frequently been very melancholy, so that at times it seemed to affect her mind.  It may have been this which led to her death.  The funeral was held at Christie Church Tuesday, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating.  A more complete obituary will be published later.
