La Grande, Union County, Oregon

In La Grande Friday morning August 5, 1888, Mrs. Hattie C. Graham, wife of J.H. Graham, an employee of the O.R.&N. Railroad. Mrs. Graham was the daughter of A.O. Porter well known in La Grande and now living in Los Angelos, Cal.

She was born in Irving, Marshall County, Kansas, February 7, 1863 and was married in La Grande September 22, 1887. Hattie was well known and highly respected by the citizens of La Grande. She became a Christian and a member of the Methodist Episcopal church under the preaching of Rev. G.W. grannis(?) in 1879, and from that till the day of her death she was firmly fixed in her religous faith. She was active and earnest in her desires to build up the cause she espoused and in church and Sunday School was ever diligent.

It was the expectation she cherished much in the last few weeks of her life that she and her husband would soon be so that they could go to Los Angelos and mingle again with her father’s family but it was ordered otherwise. She leaves a sad hearted husband and a baby boy of three weeks to await their time of life on earth.

Her mother was with her during her illness and took in care the little one and will in a few days return to Los Angelos. The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church on Sabbath August 5 at 2 p.m. and conducted by her pastor Rev. R.J. Watson of the Methodist Episcopal church and the remains were interred in the Odd Fellows cemetery.
