La Grande, Union County, Oregon

La Grande, Jan.5 (Special)–Mrs. Martha B. Ackley, second white child to be born in La Grande, died here at the age of 89 years, all of them spent in this city. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Lane came to La Grande in August, 1862, and took up thier residence in a log cabin in Old Town–then the center of the town. She was born the following year.

Mrs. Ackley is survived by five of her ten children; 32 grandchildren; 55 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. The children are:Mrs. Lulu Burnett and Oscar Ackley, of La Grande, Mrs. Carrie Glascow, of Jefferson, Ore., Mrs. Velva Cornforth of Boise, and Mrs. Lena Faye Ryckman, of Seaside, Cal.

[The year on this is 1953; she actually died on Dec 31, 1952. The ‘B’ is for ‘Belle.’ Her mother was Eliza Jane Womack.

[I do not know what newspaper(s) these came from–all I have is the clippings, with no dates or any identifying markings. Lulu Maude (Ackley) Burnett was my great-grandmother; Martha Belle (Lane) Ackley was her mother.]
