Y., d. May 27, 1908 at St. Paul, Minn., and buried there in Oakland Cemetery. Helen Mar and Addis moved to Kaposia, Minn. in 1852, and all of their children were born here, this is a suburb of St. Paul and is now called South Park. Helen Mar Messenger solicited the first (one thousand dollars) toward building a church, she was also very successful in real estate.

The following appeared in the St. Paul newspaper on Saturday, May 30, 1908. "Old resident passes away, Addis E. Messenger called to another existence, was an old resident of the west side, died on Wednesday, May 27, 1908, evening about six o'clock, after a lingering illness at the age of 81 years. Mr. Messenger was a pioneer resident of the city, he came here with his wife and pre-empted a farm in what is now South Park, but was then, and for a long time after, known as Kaposia. He was born in the village of Virgil, Cortland County, N. Y., on Oct. 21, 1827, and went to Minnesota in 1851. When the war broke out he enlisted in Company H, Seventh Minn. Vol. Infantry on Aug. 14, 1862, and served the full term of enlistment, and in 1865 was transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps.

This regiment saw some of the hard service of the war and Mr. Messenger faithfully stood at his post and did his duty.

He is survived by two sons, Charles E. and E. R. A. Messenger, and three daughters, Mrs. A. B. Harper, of Seattle, Wash., Miss Eva C. Messenger and Mrs. Heath. His funeral was held yesterday afternoon and was largely attended by old residents, and his remains were reverently laid to rest in beautiful Oakland. Thus has passed away another of the early settlers who blazed the path of civilization on the Mississippi. He was a man of unblemished character and those who knew him esteemed him as a neighbor and friend."

The following appeared in the "Ascension Review" published monthly by the Church of the Ascension at St. Paul, Minn., Feb. 1930.

"We are obliged to record another one of those losses in our membership which have come to us with mournful frequency through the visitation of death during the past year. On Jan. 29, 1930, Eva C. Messenger entered her eternal rest, full of years in service, she was born Jan. 17, 1859, the daughter of Addis E. and Helen Mar Messenger, her entire life has been passed in and about this community.

Ever since the building of the Chapel of the "Church of the Ascension", in the year 1883, which work was carried on chiefly through the efforts of her mother, Mrs. Messenger, Miss Messenger has been active in the work of the church. At the time of her death Miss Messenger was the senior in service in Church activities, among all of our present parishioners. Miss Messenger's opportunity for service in her church, presented by so many years of contact with its activities, was met with a steadiness of devotion which will for long remain as an example to the workers who survive her. As a teacher in the Sunday school and a ready and energetic helper in the general affairs of the Church, she labored with a zeal which was unabated to the end. While we mourn her as a friend, yet we can but rejoice that her life work being fully accomplished, she is "at rest from her labors." While she in person is gone, her work remains as a permanent pillar in the Church she loved and served."
