Mrs. G. B. McIntosh

Rose May Tuttle McIntosh was born at Clear Lake, Oct. 24, 1857.  Her parents, Marcus Tuttle and Caroline Warner, were Iowa pioneers, coming from New York to Clear Lake in August, 1855.  Her father was active in the development of the city and county.  He helped to lay out the city and was one of the early merchants and lumber man, later engaging in the banking business, and served his district two terms as State Senator.  Mrs. McIntosh was educated in the Cazenovia Seminary in New York.  On Feby. 4, 1876, she was married to Gilbert Blodget McIntosh, who is of New England birth.  Among his ancestors are men prominent in the history of Massachusetts and Connecticut.  He has large farming interests, and is an influential man.  They have three children --- Arthur Tuttle McIntosh, born March 28, 1877, Walter Gilbert McIntosh, born May 1, 1883;  both successful business men in Chicago, and Eunice May, born Sept. 18, 1886.  All three children were educated in the North Western University, Evanston.  Mrs. McIntosh is a member of the M. E. church and active in all of its interests, particularly in the women's societies connected with it.  She is a charter member of the Progress Club, which is a study club, but has also done a good deal of civic improvement work.  She is a member of the Civil Service and Social Reform Committee of the I. F. W. C. and has served the federation on the State Board.  For many years she was president of the Aid Society and of the Home Missionary Society of the church.  She has traveled extensively in this country and spent several winters in the south.  It is an interesting bit of history that Yale College is built on the homestead of one of her ancestors, Wm. Tuttle.
