Amy Withrow

F, b. circa 1871, d. 25 September 1918
     Amy Withrow was never married. She was born circa 1871 at Iowa birthplace possibly Kansas City, Missouri. She was the daughter of George Withrow and Mary Catherine Thurtell. Amy Withrow died on 25 September 1918 at Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.1
     Amy Withrow was also known as Patty. She The June 7, 1916, obituary for Amy Withrow's father, George Withrow, states she was 'a prominent teacher in the public schools of Kansas City Missouri.' The death certificate for Amy Withrow shows she died September 25, 1918,at her residence at 1830 Calumet Avenue, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.It shows she was a single white female age about 47 whose occupation had been as a school teacher. The informant was F. W. Craft, 69 West Washington Street, probably Chicago, Illinois, whose relationship to her is unknown. It shows she was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and shows that her parents George and Mary were also born in Kansas City. The place of burial or removal is shown as Kansas City, Missouri. The information about the cause of death is hard to read but appears to be suicide. An inquest was held. The certificate was filed September 26,1918. No death notice or obituary was found for Amy Withrow in the 'Chicago Daily Tribune' in September 1918. Chicago, Illinois, newspapers printed paid death notices and only a very few obituaries. There were many deaths at that time due to both World War I and the influenza epidemic. She may be the 'Patty' Withrow, age 9, born in Iowa, listed in the 1880 U.S. Census Soundex for Harrison Town, Grant County, Wisconsin (Volume 10, ED 107, Sheet 19, Line 2) listed with her parents George and Mary Withrow and sisters Grace, Bertha, and Anna. The 1926 'History of William Withrow' by Nellie Stanton shows Amy Withrow had been educated at the State Normal school at Platteville, Wisconsin, and had been a school teacher in Grant County, Wisconsin. After her father, George Withrow, joined the gold rush to the Klondike region in Alaska in 1896, his wife and daughters, of whom the youngest was Mary Belle, aged twelve years, moved to Chicago, where Amy, the oldest child, taught in the Chicago public schools. The second, Grace, became secretary to the postmaster, and the two youngest engaged in art work. Bertha attained remarkable success as a portrait artist. Grace died in Phoenix, Arizona, 1903, and Bertha in San Antonio, Texas, 1907. It shows Amy Withrow died in Chicago, Illinois, on September 25, 1918, and is buried in Kansas City beside her mother. She was listed as a daughter in George Withrow's household on the 1880 Census at Harrison, Grant, Wisconsin.2
