Commercial Review, Thursday, November 14, 1929

   SILAS HISER died at 11:00 o’clock Wednesday night at the home on West Seventh street.  He had been in failing health since being injured in an auto accident about two years ago, from which he never seemed to recover. 

   The deceased was a son of Jacob and Elizabeth (Roby) Hiser, and was born in Greene township, November 30, 1846, and had spent his entire life in the county.  He moved to Portland in 1907, where he has since resided.  He served as a substitute rural mail carrier from the local office for several years. 

   He was united in marriage to Martha Jane Mills, who preceded him in death, January 24, 1927.  He is survived by one son, J. O. Hiser, of this city, five grandchildren and two great grandchildren. 

   The body was removed to the Baird funeral home and prepared for interment and taken to the home of the son, J. O. Hiser, on South Meridian street, this afternoon.  Funeral services will be conducted Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Hiser residence.  Rev. H. R. Carson, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, will officiate.  Interment will be made in the Claycomb cemetery, southwest of this city.
