James Rolla & Agnes L. (Wallace) Doig

By Helen Rush

Comanche County History, page 348, The Comanche County Historical Society, 1981.

 

James Rolla Doig and Agnes L. Wallace were married in Iowa in 1854. He was a Presbyterian minister

and taught college at Washington, Iowa, and Mammoth College at Mammoth, Iowa [s/b IL]. He died in

1881. His wife, Agnes, was ill a great deal with bronchial trouble. Her doctor recommended a dry,

warmer climate, so in 1883, she and six of her eight children came to Kansas in a covered wagon and

settled in Coldwater. Her children were: Ella, 24 years; Anna 22 years; Rolla, 20 years; Jenny, 13 years;

and Haldane, 9 years.

 

They lived in the covered wagon for a time after coming to Coldwater. This was fortunate as they had to

move the wagon on one occasion to escape the path of a prairie fire. They were threatened by Indian

raids, rattlesnakes, they argued about the location, there was a shortage of water, and many other

inconveniences plagued them as well. But there were also good times, and the excitement of it all was

quite an adventure.

 

Ella, after teaching several years, married Grant Sutton, who taught in Coldwater at the time and later

moved to eastern Kansas. Anna taught a year or so, then married George Jeffries of Wichita. Rolla

became a doctor and moved to California, where another brother lived. James married Vivian Hakes

and continued living in Coldwater and Protection where he was in the bank, and later in the Farmer's Co-

op until his death in 1924. Jenny taught school for a few years; one year was in the Ferrin home before

the schoolhouse, Ridge Summit was built. She married Grant Stephens in 1896 and continued to live

near Coldwater until her death in 1913. Haldane Doig moved to California.

THE WESTERN STAR, 10 October 1902 Obituary of RUTH DOIG DIED.__Doig - In

Coldwater, Kansas, on Saturday, October 4, 1902, Ruth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.

G. Doig, aged 6 months and 9 days.__Little Ruth Doig was an exceedingly bright

and promising child, the pride and joy of her parents and a source of constant

sunshine to all. The announcement of her death early on Saturday morning was a

great shock to the entire community, coming as it did with scarcely any warning. Ruth

had been in rather poor health for several days, but no apprehension was felt until late

Friday evening when symptoms of either pneumonia or congestion of the lungs

appeared. A physician was summoned and everything was done for the little sufferer,

but shortly after 5 o'clock on Saturday morning life became extinct. Burial took place

at 2 p.m. on Sunday after a brief funeral ceremony had been conducted at the  

residence by Rev. J. C. Fisher, of the M. E. church. The bereaved parents have the

sincere sympathy of the entire community. But in such an hour of sag bereavement

human sympathy, although precious, does not fully satisfy the sorrow laden heart. To

Him who "doeth all things well," in whose keeping is all life, and who is able to give

comfort to hearts that are heavy laden, the sorrowing parents and friends are

commended.
