Alanson Pease Etheridge House

This house of Alanson Etheridge was originally a barn that he remodeled. It was located at what would have been 720 Maple Avenue in Wild Rose. The house was torn down and later Ed Heuer built in the same area. Alanson Pease Etheridge, son of Josiah Etheridge and his wife Nancy Permelia Pease, was born 25 September 1853 in the Town of Rose, Waushara County Wisconsin. He married Emma Louisa Spicer, daughter of John Spicer and Lurinda Jeffers, 15 November 1874 by Rev Burnap of the Standalone Church. Alanson and Emma had the following children: May Belle, Jesse Irving, Hubert, Milford George, Edith, Blanche Irene, Glenn Harry, and Gladys Lorinda. I am descended from Josiah & Nancy Permelia, through Alanson and Emma and then their daughter Blanche.

Alanson died 16 January 1944 and Emma died 13 April 1923. Both are buried in the Standalone Cemetery whose name was later changed to Mt. Pleasant. The cemetery is located in the town of Rose.

The picture shows Alanson's wife Emma Spicer Etheridge, Evelyn Roth, May Etheridge Roth holding son Jacob Roth. It was taken about 1911.
