Taylor, in the town of Perington, Monroe Co., in the year 1839, and in the spring of 1840 moved with her husband to Waukesha, (then called Prairieville), Wisconsin, and there settled, staying at that place thirty odd years. In 1860 they moved to Summit, their present home. A large family sprang from this union, six daughters and five sons; one daughter died in infancy. There are ten living children and one grand-daughter that they have reared to man and womanhood. Mrs. Taylor was a hard working, tender, loving wife and mother. She was a member of the E. Methodist Church at Waueksha, having joined shortly after she came to Wisconsin. She was often heard to say "I'm only staying here on earth with my loved ones, but my home is in heaven." She mae her home that each loved one was proud to won not only it but the glad other tha always welcomed them to the shelter of her arms. There were but two children in her father's family; herself and one brother, Matthew Crawford, who resides in Schenectady, N.Y. But he could not get her in time for the funeral.

Mrs. Taylor's death was very sudden, she had been sick only one week and the loved ones as they stood about her dying couch could not believe that it was death. She passed over a dark river without a struggle and went to sleep as sweetly and peacefully as an infant. Eight of her children were at the funeral. One son, John, in Minnesota, was to far from a telegraph office to get a essage in time to come. But the saddest was her son Fred, who laid sick in another room and was not allowed to take a last look at his mother.

Waukesha, Wis., Jan. 20. - V. H. Tichenor, one of the oldest settlers o Waukesha died at his home on East avenue, last night, after an illness of a little over a week, of pneumonia. He was one of the oldest members of the Waukesha county bar. He had practiced at this village since his arrival here in 1839, after being admitted to the bar in 1838 at Albany, N. Y. He had studied law previous to this at his father's home in Amsterdam, after he was graduated from Union college in 1835. In 1838, the year before he came to Waukesha, he was married to Miss Charlotte Sears. They came to Waukesha, where Mr. Tichenor began his long practice, where his integrity and business ability gained him one of the largest and most lucrative practices in the town. Mr. Tichenor was the first lawyer in the county, and the first town clerk in Waukesha when the town was organized, and held that position for many years. Since the year 1855 he had always held the position of court commissioner at this village. He also held the position of justice of the peace a great many years in the early history of the county and was draft commissioner in 1862 under the war department of the United States government. He was three times president of the village of Waukesha and had been clerk, treasurer trustee of the village and member of the school board as clerk and trustee. He was also member of the assembly for one term.

When Mr. Tichenor came to Waukesha he lived with his father on the farm now owned by Orson Tichenor and commenced his long law practice in the little office which stood where Gaspar & La Clair's hardware store now stands. He leaves two children, Miss Mary Tichenor, of Waukesha, and Mr. Willis Tichenor, of Milwaukee. A son of Mr. Willis Tichenor, Vernon Tichenor, Jr., who has been practicing law with his grandfather since his graduation from the Madison law school, last year, will probably carry on his grandfather's extensive practice. A meeting of the Waukesha bar will be held this afternoon at the office of Alex. Cook, who has practiced in Waukesha since 1845, and is the oldest living member of the Waukesha bar. Resolutions will be passed and a member of the bar appointed to announce the death of their lamented member at the next meeting of court. Miss Mary Tichenor is very ill.

A meeting of lawyers was held this afternoon in Judge Griswold's office and a committee appointed to draft resolutions of condolence of Vernon Tichenor. Alex. Cook was appointed chairman of the meeting. It was decided that the members of the Waukesha county bar attend the funeral in a body and that a badge of mourning be worn for thirty days; that a portrait of deceased by hung in the courtroom, at the opening of court on Feb. 2, and that the judge's bench be draped in mourning. The first day of court will be set aside as a day of mourning, when memorial addresses will be read. Judge M. S. Griswold, Alex. Cook and Judge Carney were appointed pall-bearers.
