Another Pioneer Gone
Major John R. Kellog

One by one the early pioneers of Union county are passing from the scene of action and leaving their inheritance to the descendants. The latest to answer to roll call was Major John R. Kellog, one of the first settlers of the county. He passed away at 4:30 p.m. Monday at the family residence three miles north of La Grande, where he settled in 1862.

Deceased was born in Oswego county, New York, July 20, 1830, and was therefore a little over 74 years old at the time of his death. Mr. Kellogg was one of the best known citizens of the country and was always a leading spirit in church and Sunday school work.

A widow and two adopted children and a large circle of friends mourn his death.

Elgin Recorder Friday September 9, 1904
