Obituary

At Mapleton, Oregon, June 7, 1909, the angel of death visited the home of S. B. Colvin and took him from his faithful wife, friends and home.  He reached the age of 66 years.  He was born in Highland, Ohio, March 15, 1843, served in the civil war 1861-1866 as a member of Company E, 11th Missouri volunteers; married in 1868 to Sarah E. Murphy.  One child, a girl, was born to them whom God saw fit to take home several years ago.  In 1879 he moved to California and thence to Oregon in 1890.  He was a member of Sherman’s Post G.A.R. and of Florence lodge, A.F. & A.M.

Funeral services were held in the Evangelical church, conducted by T. A. Yost.  A great number of his friends came to take a last look at the dear friend.  An abundance of flowers were brought to show the sincere love of his friends.  Mr. Colvin’s health had been failing for several years.  He bore his sickness and sufferings with great patience, and when the summons came to enter the Golden Gate he was prepared to heed the call of his Heavenly Father.   As he was passing away, he whispered his daughter’s name, and his last moments are best worded in these lines of his favorite hymn:

“My Saviour comes and walks with me, And sweet communion here have we.
 He gently leads me by his hand, for this is heaven’s border land.

“The zephers seem to float to me, Sweet sounds of heaven’s melody As
angels with the white-robed throng Join in the sweet redemption song.”

 A Friend.

GEORGE COX KILLED BY FALLING TREE
(From Thursday’s Daily Guard)

Yesterday afternoon between 4 and 5 o’clock George Cox, aged about 24 years, was instantly killed by a falling tree on the “excelsior” island, a few miles north of the city.

Cox and his brother, Will Cox, were both felling a huge tree for the Eugene excelsior mill in Eugene.  It began to fall before they expected it to and they both ran to where they thought they were safe, but the tree fell in the opposite direction from what they thought it would and the butt of the tree struck George squarely in the face, bearing him to the ground.  Life seemed to be extinct when his brother reached him.

Coroner Gordon was telephoned for, but he found that ho inquest was necessary.

The young man and his mother were residing temporarily in a tent near the scene of the tragedy.  The mother depended upon the son entirely for support.  Will Cox and family also lived in a tent nearby.
