La Grande, Union County, Oregon

James Coulter, several years a citizen of Elgin, but of late years a resident of La Grande, died in that city August 31, 1945, aged 86 years and 21 days.

Although his health had been generally failing, due to his advanced years, his final illness was of short duration.

Graveside services were conducted at the Elgin cemetery at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, and entombment followed immediately thereafter.

Only two direct relatives survive deceased. They are two sons: F. L., of Sisters, Ore., and Jas. J., of Joseph.

James Coulter was born at Mulkeytown, Ill., August 12, 1859. He came with his family to Walla Walla valley in 1896, residing there 3 years, then moved to Joseph in 1899. He moved to Elgin in 1913, residing here several years. He had resided in La Grande the past 4 years.
