OTT --Mrs. Justine Ott, 82 years old, a pioneer resident of Kansas and Johnson County, died at her home at Olathe Dec. 5. Surviving are three sons, Charley and Albert, both of Olathe, and Henry of Ottawa, Kansas. A daughter, Mrs. J. P. Paulissem, lives in Kankakee, Illinois. Mrs. Ott was born in Germany. With her husband, C. M. Ott, she came here in 1860 and Mrs. Ott established the first flour mill in Eastern Kansas. In ruins, it still stands at the edge of town on a part of the Ott estate. During the Civil War, when Quantrell and his band invaded Olathe, the guerrilla leader rode up to the Ott home and called for "ham and eggs for forty." Single handed, Mrs. Ott filled the order.
