Maria A. Tuttle Answers Call
Lived On One Place Since Year ’63
One of Union County’s First Settlers Called to Rest

Funeral Friday

Mrs. Maria A. Tuttle, wife of Terry Tuttle, died on the old homestead three miles east of Summerville at 2 o’clock this morning. On account of her very advanced age and failing health her demise was not unexpected.

Mrs. Tuttle and her husband were among the oldest of the surviving couples who were among the first arrivals in Grande Ronde and they have lived continuously on the homestead where they first located in 1863. Mrs. Tuttle’s maiden name was Lewis and her marriage to Terry Tuttle was in Iowa December 18, 1850. But a few more months would have witnessed the 66th wedding anniversary of the aged pair. She was 82 years of age.

Mrs. Tuttle leaves besides her husband two sons, John W. and Edward B., of Imbler; three daughters, Mrs. Catherine J. Norval and Mrs. A. J. Woods, of Elgin, and Mrs. Jessie L. Starbird, of Portland. The latter has been quite recently on an extended visit with her parents.

The funeral will be tomorrow (Friday) at 10:30 a.m., the cortege leaving the home at 10.
