Cove, Union County, Oregon

Died at Union, Oregon, March 6, 1922, Mrs. Mary Horton, age 71 years, 4 months and 18 days.

Mary Fisher, daughter of Thomas and Martha Fisher, was born October 16, 1850, in Wayne County, Tennessee. She was married to Nathaniel Horton, in Corey County, Arkansas, January 31, 1870. To this union eight children were born-two having passed on.

In the spring of 1876 they started to Oregon, arriving in the Grande Ronde Valley October 6, 1876. They camped about where Little Creek bridge is now on the Cove road. They made their home in this valley until 1884, when they settled in Cove, where they have since made their home.

She is survived by her husband, four daughters and two sons-Mrs. Bell Haynes, Mrs. Fannie Clark and Mrs. Elsie Tobin, of Union; Mrs. Bessie Burton of Baker; Wayne, of Baker and Edward of Union. Two brothers and one sister, fifteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was a member of the Baptist Church, a kind and devoted wife and mother, a good friend and neighbor, ever ready to do a kind act for anyone in need. Many friends extend sympathy to the bereaved family.

The body was shipped to Cove, where the funeral was held from the Baptist church Wednesday March 8, at 2 o’clock p. m. Interment in the Cove cemetery.
