Edward Matthias Wilmott

M, b. 16 November 1848, d. after April 1930
     Edward Matthias Wilmott was born on 16 November 1848 at Potosi, Grant, Wisconsin; also reported as Nov 1849. He was the son of Isaac Wilmott and Mary Ann Auberla. Edward Matthias Wilmott married Katherine Lingscheid, daughter of Anton Lingscheid and Elizabeth Stone Mueller, in 1876. Edward Matthias Wilmott died after April 1930.
      Edward Matthias Wilmott was also known as Edward Mathias. Edward Matthias Wilmott was also known as Ed. EDWARD M. WILMOTT, justice of the peace and town clerk of Potosi, Grant county, is one of the leading business men and prominent citizens of that town, where he was born in 1848, a son of Isaac and Mary (AUBERLA) WILMOTT, early settlers of Wisconsin.

Isaac WILMOTT was a native of Canada, but came to Potosi in 1833, was a miner by occupation, and followed that calling all his life. His death occurred in Potosi in 1871. The mother of our subject was a native of Switzerland, whence she came, in 1826, to Galena, Ill., and then to Wisconsin, locating in Lafayette county, then in Grant county, finally locating in Potosi, where she met and married Isaac WILMOTT. Prior to her marriage to Mr. WILMOTT, the mother had been married to Francis NICHOLS, and bore him the following family: Sophia; Mary; Theodore; Edward; John; Adelle, wife of Joseph MILLET, of Minneapolis; Peter of Minneapolis, who enlisted in 1862, in Co. H, 25th Wis. V.I., and served until the close of the war; Frank enlisted in 1861 in the 2d Wis. V.I., and served three years and four months, dying at Potosi, May 14, 1891; and by her second marriage there were: Elizabeth, deceased; Edward M; Samuel, deceased; and Henry,who died in Colorado in 1878.

Edward M. WILMOTT was reared and educated at Potosi, and has always been a resident of the town. He is bookkeeper for the Potosi Brewing Co., and is interested in the insurance business. In 1882 he was elected justice of the peace, and has held that office ever since, and is also a notary public.

Mr. WILMOTT was married in Potosi, in 1876, to Miss Kate LINGSCHEID, who was born in that town, a daughter of Anton and Elizabeth LINGSCHEID, natives of Germany, who came to Milwaukee in 1848, thence to Potosi in 1850. The father was a shoemaker by trade, and died in August, 1880, his wife surviving him until January 1885. Five children have been added to the family of our subject and wife: Mary Florence, county teacher; Henry, Samuel, Eva and James Edward. The WILMOTTs have their own band, as each one plays some instrument, and the WILMOTT Family Band is well known in this section. In sentiment Mr. WILMOTT is a Democrat, and takes an active interest in politics. Fraternally he is a member of the order of Modern Woodmen and of the A.O.U.W., of Lancaster, and the Knights of the Globe.
