Fine, Abraham – Obituary

Abraham Fine, an aged pioneer resident of Elgin, died quite suddenly at his home in this city, shortly before nine o’clock Sunday evening. Mr. Fine had not been feeling very robust for some time although he was feeling as well as usual on the date of his death, and had been out on Gorden creek visiting that day. Shortly after returning home he began to feel badly and Dr. Brownell was sent for, but before he reached his patient he was beyond human aid.

Deceased was born in Warren County, Mo., Sept. 6th, 1829, and came to Oregon in 1874.

He leaves a wife and six grown children to mourn his death.

The funeral took place at the Summerville cemetery Tuesday.

The Elgin Recorder Friday January 22, 1897
