County News - Scottsburg:

We have been very much pained and saddened by the death of little Minnie Palmer of throat difficulty. She was a very quiet, pleasant little girl in the twelfth year of her age. She leaves a large circle of brothers and sisters to mourn her early death and also kind parents. She was sick about three weeks and suffered dreadfully. Everything was done for her that could be. She died January 3rd, and was burried on the 4th. Her brother, Elmer, of Drain attended the funeral.


Mrs. Wade, wife of Elder A.B. Wade of Oakland died the 8th of consumption.

The Plaindealer Roseburg, Oregon Friday, January 18, 1889

Obituary - WADE

At the family residence in Oakland, Douglas County, Oregon, January 8th, 1889, of consumption. Mrs. Mary Wade, wife of Elder A.B. Wade, aged 45 years, 2 months and 11 days.

Mrs. Wade was the daughter of William and Charlotte Eddleblute of Roxbury, Morgan County, Ohio and was one of five children, two of whom, with her father survives her.

She was married Nov. 5th, 1865 to Dr. J.W. White, of Windsor, Morgan County, Ohio. This union was blessed with one child, Mrs. C.C. Taylor, now living here. Dr. White died February 2nd, 1875. August 18?, 1880, she married Elder A.B. Wade, then pastor of the Christian Church at Belle Plain, Illinois. About three years afterward he resigned the pastorate and they moved to Eureka, Illinois, in order that her daughter might enjoy the benefits of the college at that place. In 1884, they moved to Valley Falls, Kansas, where they lived till the present year.

January last her husband came to Oregon and soon after was elected to the position of State Evangelist of the Christian Church of this state. Believing that the climate of this coast would be beneficial, and probably restore her failing health, he sent for his wife, and last June the family followed him and located at this place. She seemed to improve for a time, but the vital forces were too far exhausted to allow recovery. In 1871 under the teaching of Elder W.W. Taylor, she became obedient to the faith, united with the church, and ever after it can truly be said, lived a conscientious and consistent Christian. She passed away in the full and complete faith having an assurance of her final victory over death and of her joyful entrance into "that great city, the holy Jerusalem," where the weary and obedient soul finds eternal rest.

She has left an aching void in the heart of the husband, which time alone can heal. She has left a child who though now a woman, still sought a mother's counsel, and who can now more fully realize the influence and depth of a mother's love. She has left friends who could not help but feel the influence of a nature both loving and loveable, and to whom she bound herself by the strongest ties of social affection. A noble hearted woman -- she has left a life-work that will remain as a guide-star to point us on toward a better life, and to a grander work. Such a one lives not in the memory alone, but reaches beyond the circle of the home, and their works unconsciously are casting their influence farther on, and mankind receives a lasting benefit. While it is for the good and the pure that we sorrow the most, and from whom we are most loth to part, yet it is also the memory of the good that brings peace to our troubled minds, balm for our sorrowing hearts. It is then we can submit to the inevitable, and feel that though the burden may be hard to bear, yet "God hath chosen for the best."

A Pioneer Gone: N.E. Mulvaney:

N.E. Mulvany died at his residence at Hudson Tuesday, Jan 22, 1889, after a few days illness of typhoid fever, at the age of 57 years. Mr. Mulvany was one of Oregon's pioneers. He came out to this country in 1852 in company with Mr. H. Davis, and located on Pass Creek in 1856 where he has since been living. This county was all a wilderness for many years after Mr. Mulvany came here. He put a saw mill on Pass Creek and twenty years ago he was running the pioneer saw mill that cut the lumber that built the houses for many miles around. That mill, at last is a thing of the past. It fulfilled the demand of those days and quite near where it once made music with the birds, stands the fine new and very valuable steam saw mill put up by Messrs, Bulkley & Heald. Mr. Mulvany looked forward with a great deal of pleasure to the success of the new enterprise, but he was called to cross the dark waters from which there is no return. He had by many years of constant, unceasing struggle, secured a valuable home which he leaves to his family--a wife and two children. He leaves a large circle of relatives and acquaintances to morn his very sudden and unexpected death.---Drain Echo.

On Feb. 13th, 1889, to the wife of J.G. Marshall, a daughter.


The subject of this memoir, Annie Lucy Nichols, wife of Henry H. Nichols, was born in Rock Island County, Illinois, March 9th, 1866. Moved with her mother, Mrs. S. Vinyard, to Missouri in 1871, afterwards moved to Bonne Terre, St. Francois County, Missouri, then to Canyonville, Oregon in June, 1885. Was married to Henry H. Nichols October 12, 1887. She died in the full triumph of living faith. Besides her husband and mother she left an infant daughter but four days old. About an hour before she died she called her husband to her bedside and said "I am going to Heaven, I want you to meet me there, bring the baby, mother and Susie." Then she said "I hear the bells! See the angels, I hear them sing!. I will soon be there" and struck in with her sweet voice and sang clear and distinct " There's Sweet Rest in Heaven." She then invited the friends present to sing with her, which was kept up about an hour. She joined in every song until she got so weak she could not speak the words, but hummed the tunes and dropped asleep in the arms of Jesus without a struggle. It seemed as though Heaven was opened to her vision and she looked in. She said to her husband, "Henry darling, will you meet me in Heaven?" The answer was, "I will." She added, "I will be there, bring the baby, mother and Susie."

I am told she never made a profession of Christianity before. She gave the most unmistakable evidence of her acceptance with God. Rev. Wichser preached her funeral to a large attendance of mourning friends, who followed her remains to their last resting place in the cemetery near Riddle, where she rests in peace. ---Noah Cornutt

In Memoriam:

Lines on the death of little Happy Aurara Tipton, who died Feb. 8th, 1889, written by Mrs. Jennie Blakely:

The little lamb has reached her rest
Forever on the Savior's breast.
She's gone where sorrow is unknown,
And stands with Angels around the throne

She's gone from pain and sorrow free,
The Savior's love and face to see
And living water drinks she now--
With angels' crown upon her brow.

O! think what joy in heaven she shares
Where never enters sins or cares,
But 'mid the angels shining wings
Sings sweetest songs of heavenly things.

Then may we shed the bitter tear,
But never, never wish her here,
But may we join her in the song
Of heaven's high chorus loud and long.

An Autopsy:

Dr. S. Marsters was called upon last Saturday by the friends of Mr. Joseph Champaigne, who suddenly died, to have a post mortem examination to ascertain the real cause of his death. Dr. Marsters called to his assistance Dr. Brower. They made an examination and found the immediate cause of death to be a fatty degeneration of the heart. The muscle of the heart had become atrophied to such a degree that they failed to cause the blood to flow out; that is, the heart ceased to perform its function from its loss of muscular power and death immediately ensued.
