Eardley, Myrna Jo Dudley Mrs. – Obituary

Myrna Jo Dudley Eardley 67, of Farr West, Utah, died May 17, 2009, at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah, from conditions related to kidney failure due to polycystic kidney disease. Her funeral was May 21 at Farr West, Utah. Her life was sustained for the past nine years by kidney dialysis, after the loss, after only three months, of a transplanted kidney received from her sister, Teri Ann Dudley of Bozeman, Mont. Myrna was born on Nov. 21, 1941, at Cut Bank, Mont. She was the second of five children of Devere Floyd and Jolanda Martha Ehlert Dudley. She spent her early years happily growing up on the wide-open plains of Montana, 17 miles northwest of Cut Bank near the Canadian border.

Biography of Eli Dudley

Eli Dudley, farmer and stock-raiser; P. O. Ashmore; was born in Coles Co. Jan. 17, 1840, being a son of Guilford and Mary (Wiley) Dudley; to trace the genealogy of the Dudley family from its origin, it would be necessary to begin with the Earl of Dudley, of Dudley Castle, in Staffordshire, England, in the fourteenth century, and follow down through a long line of earls, barons, etc.; this is not our purpose, but we can say that the genealogy is complete and authentic from that point to the subject of the present sketch; the first of the family to come to America was Thomas Dudley, Governor of the province of Massachusetts Bay; many of his descendants held prominent positions in the early history of the country; assisted in the struggle for independence, and are now leading citizens in various parts of the country; the first to come to Coles Co. were three brothers-Moses, James and Guilford; Guilford Dudley was born in Raymond, N. H., Dec. 7, 1795; the day he was 21, he left home, and, going to Ohio, worked on a farm for a year; then went to New Orleans, from which place he came to Coles Co., as early as 1825 or 1826; he worked at first on his brother’s farm, and afterward entered eighty acres of land. He was married in 1829 to Miss Mary...

Biography of Anderson C. Smith

As a leader in the affairs of the counties of northeastern Oregon, both in times of difficulty with the Indians and also in the quieter times of civil industry, while also he has been a promoter of good government and of substantial progress in the county, the subject of this sketch stands today as one of the prominent and respected citizens of Wallowa county, having manifested both integrity and sound principles and marked capabilities in all of his career here. In addition to this, Mr. Smith has taken a leading part in the Indian councils that were far reaching to the entire northwest, while in his younger days he was one of the first that stepped to the standard, that had been insulted by the minions of treason, and in its defense he did valiant and intrepid service for his county. In Franklin County, Illinois, Mr. Anderson C. Smith was born in 1831, being the son of Benjamin F. and Sarah C. (Drummond) Smith. The parents lived in that county until the time of their departure from the scenes of earth and their remains lie buried there today. The first venture of our subject when he had arrived to the years of maturity was to rent land, and the proceeds of this were used in attending the academy in Benton and then afterwards he also continued in attendance, working...
