Union, Union County, Oregon

October 21st. at Union, Oregon, Norman Evans, son of J. B. and Mary R. Thomson, aged 3 years, 5 months and 14 days.

The autumn winds, rustling wafts the leave
that are at rest:
And death for its mark, selects the heart that
are dearest.

Dear as thou we’t, and justly dear,
We will not weep for thee;
One thought shall check the starting tear,
it is that thou art free.

And thus shall faiths’ consoling power
The tears of love restrain:
Oh, who that saw thy parting hours
Could wish thee here again.
