Mary Elizabeth Frame moved from her birthplace in South Salem, Westchester County, New York, with her parents, to Wappinger's Falls, New York, then to Fondulac, Wisconsin, and then to Morris, Ill. After her marriage to William Gilman, in 1865, they made their first home in Ottawa, Ill., where her husband was engaged in the manufacture of farm implements until 1872. He invented the first power corn speller. In 1872, they moved to Chicago and William Gilman began dealing in Chicago real estate because his health was injured by the strain of the manufacturing business. Chicago was her home for nearly thirty-five years. Her husband died in 1902 and is buried in the Graceland Cemetery, in Chicago, Ill. He died of pneumonia in Phoenix, Arizona, where he had been spending the winter. In 1908, she moved to Galesburg, Ill., with her son-in-law, W. J. Hayward. She lived there for four years and then moved to Sioux City in 1912, where she died at the home of her son-in-law on March 10, 1916. She is buried in the Graceland Cemetery, in Chicago, Ill. Her life was one of untiring devotion to her family. She was a most capable, intelligent woman, of excellent judgment, a good business manager, and the bulwark of the family. All who knew her loved her, and her memory is precious and inspiring.
