Judson Draper Services Today

Judson Wolvert Draper was born May 21, 1869, near Schuyler, Neb., and passed away suddenly at his home in Enterprise at 9 o’clock Monday morning, Dec. 20. Mr. Draper came to Oregon when he was 14 years old, and his home had been here ever since.

In La Grande in 1894 he was married to Miss Sarah Frances Baldwin, and they came to Wallowa county to make their home many years ago. They lived first at Lostine, later moving to a farm in the Leap county where they resided for ten years before moving to Enterprise.

Mr. and Mrs. Draper were the parents of two children, Mrs. James Fisher of Enterprise and Kelso Draper of St. Paul, Ore., both of whom, with the widow, survive. There are also six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Funeral services will be held this afternoon (Thursday) from the Booth chapel and burial will be in the Enterprise cemetery. For many years Mr. Draper was a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge, but of late had not kept up his relation with the lodge.
