The Stelsels had no children, but took a little girl, Lily Cunningham, and raised her as their own daughter. She later married W. E. Gutknecht, and died 21 years ago. The Stelsels three years later moved back to Waupun, and Mr. Stel- sel died five years ago. Since that time Mrs. .Stelsel made her home with two sisters, Mrs. Duit- nmn, and Miss Cora Slyvester.
