Rowena Hudson Stratton

Born November 8, 1852 in Topeka, Indiana to Timothy Hudson (1823-1899) and Ann Louisa Wolcott Hudson (1829-1919). Rowena attended Wheaton College from 1872 to 1874. While a student she met John Leander Stratton, class of 1876. Stratton was the younger brother of Samuel Fay Stratton, class of 1865. They were married on October 24, 1877 in Noble County, Indiana. She died very young on July 26, 1879 in Wyanet (LaGrange County), Illinois. It would appear that Rowena died in childbirth as she is buried with her infant, unnamed, daughter. After her death a memorial scholarship was established in her name by her father in 1890.
