Obituary of Mrs. A. W. Hutton (Kate Travis Hutton), Los Angeles, California.

The death of Mrs. A. W. Hutton, of Los Angeles, Cal., is deeply mourned by the members of Robert E. Lee Chapter, U. D. C., of which she was a beloved and revered member from the time of its organization. Her life was full of noble deeds and self-sacrificing kindnesses, She served the Robert E. Lee Chapter as President in its early days and later was elected Honorary Life President. To all those who have succeeded her in office she was an ever-present help.

Miss Kate Travis went to California in 1869 from Gainesville, Ala., where she was born, in 1851, the daughter of Amos Travis and Eliza A. Coleman, both of prominent families in the history of Alabama and the South. All of her relatives were most loyal Confederates, and every male relative able to bear arms was a volunteer in the Confederate army. In February, 1874, she was married to Anrelius W. Hutton, a young attorney of Gainesville, Ala., who had gone to California with her father's family. Judge Hutton was a cadet in Company B, Alabama Corps Cadets, from the cummer of 1863 to the end of the war and has twice served as Commander of the Pacific Division, U. C. V.

Mrs. Hutton was the mother of ten children, six of whom, with her husband survive, all the daughters being members of the Robert E. Lee Chapter and the husband an associate member. She was a wonderful wife and mother and friend. Of her it may be said that "though her sun has set, the sphere in which she moved will long be aglow with the light of her deeds and her many virtues."
