WIFE OF OIL KING
DIES INJEW YORK
Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Passes
Away at 10 :20 A. M. at Home
at Pocantico Hills.
HER HUSBAND IS IN FLORIDA
NEW YORK. March 12. Mrs.
John D. Rockefeller died at 10:20
o'clock this forenoon at the Rocke
feller country home at Pocantico
Hills. Just outside of Tarrytown.
where she has been ill for Bome time.
While Mrs. Rockefeller ha been an In
valid for many months. It is understood
that her death came unexpectedly. Her
husband. John D. Rockefeller, and her
son -were, at Ormond. Fla.. and were ad
vised early today that Mrs. Rockefeller
had taken a critical turn for the worse.
Mr. Rockefeller and his son Immediately
atia-ag-ed a special train, wtiloh left Jack
sonville early today It was learned, and
Is due her some time tomorrow. Mrs.
K. Parmelee Prentice. Mrs. Rockefeller's
daughter, was the only Immediate relat
ive present when she died.
atlre nl Ohio.
Laura Cnlestfa Spelman Rockefeller was
born In Wadsworth, O, of well-to-do
New Bnnrland parents, on September 9,
1K39. She was her husband's Junior by
two months. As a child she lived In
Wadirworth, In Burlington, la.; In Akron,
O., where her father, Harvey R. Spel
man. achieved a competence in the dry
goods business, and later In Cleveland.
In the grammar school at Cleveland she
met John Rockefeller when they were
15 years old.
Rockefeller was a country boy. She
was the daughter of one of Cleveland's
leading cltlaens. Ills home was a little
farm house; hers, one of Cleveland'!
handsomest residences. Ills associates,
outside of school, were mostly farm
hands and country boys; hers were tal
ented folk of affairs drawn to her fath
er's handsome home, for her father then
was a member of the Ohio legislature, a
publlo spirited citizen Interested in phil
anthropies and a man of many activities.
Notwithstanding other differences, the
awkward youth and the city (rlrl had In
common a love of study and simple
tastes, and they became fast friends.
Qnlet, Kindlons lrl.
Laura Spelman's schoolmates knew her
as a quiet, rtudious (rlrl who would rather
read a good book than ao to the theater;
as a devout church-goer and as a ftlrl
who was always well dreaeed In good
taste, avoiding; extremes and seeking sim
plicity. She was intensely practical and
home-loving. At high school sho caused
some surprise by taking not only the
prescribed course, but bookkeeping and
other commercial studies little pursued by
young women In those days.
There seems to have been little sen
timentality In the friendship between
Mlas Spelman and young Rockefeller,
but for ten years each was the other's
best friend. During the days of Rocke
feller's early manhood, when he saw his
hopes of a college education fade away,
and soon thereafter when he tramped
the streets of Cleveland for weeks in a
seemingly hopeless search for work, she
encouraged and cheered him. Soon after
he had established himself In his first
place as bookkeeper at $500 a year she
left Cleveland to complete her education
at Worcester, Mass. She returned when
she was 20 years old and taught In Cleve
land's publlo schools. Tier first class
was the "A" grammar grade In the
Brownell Street school, know known as
the East Fourteenth Street school. And
she renewed her friendship with young
Aids Lover on His Books.
In 1882 Miss Spelman, described by her
superiors a a splendid disciplinarian and
a perfect teacher, became assistant prin
cipal of the school. Rockefeller, ab
sorbed in business, took the books of his
firm to her of an evenfng and together
they would go over his affairs. Both of
them were Interested together In ohurch
work, too; she as a Congregatlonalist,
he as a Baptist, and neither ever at
tended a dance or the theater.
Young Rockefeller prospered beyond
his fni vst hopea As soon aa he felt that
he could ask her to beooine his wife he
did so. They were married on September
8, 184, the eve of har twenty-fifth birth
day, and started to koep house In a little
two-story brick residence on one of Cleve
land's side streets. Upon her marriage
she became a Baptist and to her religion
and her home sbe devoted her entire
"To he a good wire and mother Is the
highest and hardest privilege of a
woman.- was one of the sayings ac
credited to her by the little circle of
friends she knew at this time. The bor
ders of her world were her home. Her
whole life was wrapped up in her hus
band and children. She avoided all social
functions and Joined no clubs.
Training for (Htldrea.
When Mr. Rockefeller's wealth was
mentioned In seven figures they left their
first home for a residence remarkable
only for It unpretenUousness on Euclad
avenue. Cleveland's 'mile of millions."
Slere Mns. Rockefeller reared her four
chuaren; a fifth died In Infancy,
The training given the Rockefeller
children by their mother Is declared to
have been almost Spartan. Although the
Rockefeller weath increased In leaps and
bounds there was only one carriage and
a horse oared for by a man. who acted
as both coachman and hostler. These
were used mostly Sunday on the trip
to church. Mrs. Rockefeller employed twn
'maJds, but still insisted on doing much of
ine work herself. She also surpervlaed
every detail of the care and training of
her children, particularly seeking to In
still in their minds the lesson of thrift.
Of her children, three are living. She
aas the mother of four daughters and
one son, the last named, John D. Rocke
feller, jr., being the youngest. Her eld
est daughter, Bessie, who married Prof.
Charles A. Strong, died In France In 1S0S,
at the age of 40 The second daughter,
Alice, died in infancy.
The surviving children are Alta, wife
of E Parmalee Prentlc; Edith, who mar
