Little Falls Transcript, Little Falls, MN, Monday, February 11, 1895

Called From Earth: STILLWELL-On Saturday, February 9, 1895, of paralysis, John T. Stillwell, aged 76 years.

The deceased was a native of New York state and came to this country in 1848, and was employed as a carpenter when Fort Ripley was built. Later he was married to Miss Nancy B. Warren, and later opened a hotel at Swan River which he conducted for a number of years. He then made a pre-emption on the piece of land near Swan River now owned by Milo Porter. A few years after he moved to Little Falls and worked at his trade, building many of the first houses in this city.

He was the father of four children, Geo. Stillwell and Mrs. Thomas C. Gordon, of this city, Mrs. Jennie Talent of Butte, Mont., and Miss Emma Stillwell, who died a number of years ago. Mr. Stillwell continued to keep his house at the old home on Fifth Street, until his daughter was married when he took up his residence with her. Five years ago he had a stroke of paralysis and during most of the time since he has been confined to his home. He grew worse within the last month and had two more strokes which finally took him off.

Mr. Stillwell was an honest, conscientious man and we doubt if he had an enemy. He was highly respected by the people of Morrison county and had held the offices of county commissioner and coroner; the duties pertaining to these offices he performed faithfully and well.

The funeral will be held from the Episcopal church tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.

Burial12 February 1895He was buried on 12 February 1895 at Oakland Cemetery in Little Falls, Morrison, Minnesota, United States.3

Biography The following is an excerpt from the "Biography of Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Gordon given by Mrs. Gordon and taken from the "Histories of Morrison and Todd Counties" as recorded by Mrs. Minnie Cochrane for the Morrison County Historical Society - November 1937.

     Mary A. Stilwell was born in Little Falls, May 19, 1864. She is the daughter of John Thomas Stilwell and Nancy Warren Stilwell. Thomas Stilwell was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He came to Swan River in 1849. "This deserted village" as Frank B. Logan styles it in "Historical Sketches of Royalton and Vicinity", was located on the East bank of the Mississippi River seven miles northwest of Royalton. At the time Mr. Stilwell came to Swan River, it was a busy trading post. William H. Hood, editor of "Frontiersman", said of it in 1855: "There was probably more business done at this point (1848-51) than at any other place in the country and more than has ever been done there since. It was a rendezvous of all the principal Indian traders among the Chippewas and Winnebagoes - a depot for Indian goods. The place was always filled with strangers. All sorts of spirits gathered there - some for fun, some for money, and all for something. The hotel was well kept and always crowded." The first ferry in Morrison County was established at Swan River by William Aiken in 1848.
     Thomas Stilwell was a carpenter and worked at his trade in Swan River until 1856 when he ran the hotel. While living in Swan River he married Nancy Warren who came with her parents to Swan River from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. One of Nancy Warren's ancestors came over in the Mayflower and others fought in the American Revolution.
     After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Stilwell remained for a time in Swan River. Two of their children, John and Sara Jane, were born there. Sara Jane Stilwell is now Mrs. Tellant. She resided in Florida and has been very active in the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. "Was one of the instigators of the movement by the D.A.R.'s to purchase the land in Washington D.C. upon which the organization built its beautiful Memorial Hall." Mr. and Mrs. Stilwell moved to Little Falls in the early sixties and Mary was born there in 1864.


     After coming to Little Falls, Mr. Stilwell followed his trade as carpenter and became a contractor, often going into the Western country to build elevators. At one time his work called him as far west as Fort Assinniboine, Montana. Mrs. Gordon says, "The family felt very sad when he had to go so far away, to the ends of the earth. When he came home he had many interesting stories to tell of his adventures. Sometimes when traveling on the Red River, the boat would have to stop and wait for a herd of buffalo to cross over."
     After moving to Little Falls, Mr. Stilwell bought half a block on the southside of First Avenue between Fifth and Fourth Streets. "This was before there were any railroad tracks on the eastside."
     Mr. Stilwell died July 4, 1887 and Mrs. Stilwell died at the Gordon home in Little Falls. Mary Stilwell attended school in Little Falls. "There was no high school then." Among the teachers she remembers are Mrs. E.S. Smith "who was a great person to always be getting up plays for the interest of the school" and J.C. Flynn, " a very good teacher." Mary attended church and Sunday school at the old Episcopal Church which was built in 1869 and located at the corner of First Street and Third Avenue N.E. (In 1900 this building was moved from First Street to the rear of the lot at Fourth Street and First Avenue SouthEast where the present Episcopal church is). When the new church was built in 1903, the old building was sold to the Swedish Methodist Congregation and moved down on the flats. Mr. Elwell was the first rector she remembers. Her mother, Mrs. Nancy Stilwell, was one of the four charter members of the Episcopal church.
