Death of Mrs. Eliza Masterson

The death of Mrs. Eliza Jane Masterson occurred at her home in this city Wednesday, November 23, 1905. Deceased had been ill for over a year and during that time had withstood untold suffering, but always with great fortitude and patience.

Eliza Jane Violet was born in Logan county, Kentucky, December 27, 1820 and was therefore 84 years, 10 months and 25 days old at the time of her death. During her girlhood days she moved to Missouri, in which state she was united in marriage in 1840 to William Masterson. She crossed the plains in company with her husband, in 1851 and settled in Lane county, this state, where she resided until 1884, when she moved to Eastern Oregon. Her husband preceeded her to the grave in 1890.

She was the mother of eleven children, six sons and four daughters surviving her. The sons living are J.A. of this city; D.M. of Middleton, Idaho; R.A. and Edward, of Eagle Valley, and Cal., of Rupert, Ida. The daughters living are Mrs. Lucy McFarland, of Prineville, Or.; Mrs. Mary Dunn of Eugene Or., and Mrs. Elizabeth Lewis, of this city.

The funeral services were conducted in the Presbyterian church of this city yesterday at 1 o’clock and the remains were interred in city cemetery. *Note that the dates do not match on age
