Andrew Crabtree, 80, a resident of the Maupin District for more than 43 years, died at his home there this morning. Mr. Crabtree was born in Jackson County, Mo., October 12, 1851, and crossed the plains by ox team with his parents, Job and Sarah [Constable] Crabtree at the age of two years.

The pioneer party came by way of the Green River Trail crossing the Meacham Pass to Oregon. They forded the Deschutes just above where the present bridge is built, going through the Dufur and Tygh Valley districts to the Barlow pass, which they crossed into the Willamette Valley.

The parents took up a donation land claim in Linn County near Lebanon and to the present day there is a settlement and creek there bearing the name of Crabtree. Andrew was married at Lebanon May 30, 1875 to Jane Martin, who died at Maupin in 1918.

Funeral services will be held Sunday at Maupin at the American Legion Hall at 1 o’clock in the afternoon under the direction of Zell’s. Rev. G. K. Hartman will officiate and interment will be in the Kelly Cemetery.

Mr. Crabtree was the father of 11 children, seven of whom survive. They are Job, Earl, Raymond, Mrs. J. H. Chastain, Mr. John Donaldson, and Mrs. D. W. Talcott, all of Maupin and Mrs. Sarah Darnall of Portland. He also leaves 17 grandchildren and five great grandchildren and one brother, I. N. Crabtree of Maupin.
