Notes:  Mathilda Moore was born 26 Feb 1852 in Ontario, Canada.  Her parents were Samuel Moore and Mary Carson, who were of Irish descendant.  Nothing more is known about her until she married Henry C. Detwiller.  They were married 8 Jun 1870 in Fullarton Twp., Perth, Ontario.  She, as well as Henry, were Presbyterian and both resided in the Fullarton Twp.

Mathilda's first child Mary was born in 1871, and died 4 days later.  John Henry was born in 1872, followed by Mary, 1874, William, 1876, Alexander, 1878, Frederick, 1879, and Andrew, 1881.  By the 1881 Canada census, she had six living children, age 9 and younger.

  In 1882, her husband Henry traveled to Griggs County, South Dakota, to file a premption claim in Tyrol Township, 7 miles north of Cooperstown.  He returned to Fullarton in the spring of 1884.  In 1885, she and Henry, with their six children, moved to the claim in South Dakota.  They traveled by train, and family history is that they saw Indians on the way.

In Tyrol Twp., Mathilda kept house in a home with two rooms downstairs, and two rooms upstairs.  In 1891, their last child Harry Russell was born, the only family member born in the United States.  In 1895, William died at the age of 18.  In the 1900 U.S. census, Mathilda and Henry were living in Tyrol Twp., with only their four youngest sons, and a servant named Bettie Bell.  Henry died 1 Dec 1900.

In the 1910 U.S. census, Mathilda was living with her sons Fred and Harry.  She was a member of Eastern Star.  She died 23 Oct 1919, and her funeral services were held in the Congregational Church of which she was a member.  Pastor Bennette of the M.E.
