MAHALA GEORGE. – Mahala George was the wife of Presley George, and was born in Barnstable, Massachusetts, August 22, 1808. She is the daughter of Hugh and Rebecca Blanchard Nickerson, an old Puritan family of distinction and memorable service in the Bay state. They removed to Ohio in 1817; and in that state of great ideas and great people, on the whole the finest produced in American, Miss Mahala received her education, and gained the large ideas which naturally suited her New England mind. She is one of the mothers of our state whom Oregon could by no means have spared, and still adorns in her beautiful old age the best society of our Pacific Northwest. She has already passed one birthday beyond four-score years, but still retains her physical and mental strength. She makes her home in East Portland.
