Campbell, Emma – Obituary

Union, Union County, Oregon

Death of Mrs. Emma Campbell, a former resident of Union, died at Logan, Utah, May 17, 1911, at the age of 74 years, 7 months and 11 days. The funeral took place in Union Saturday May 20, at 2 p. m. from the M. E. Church.

Mrs. Emma Campbell was formerly Mrs. J, E, Yowell, and leaves two sons and three daughters of her immediate family, aside from her husband, Mr. Campbell, who resides at Logan, Utah.

Old timers will remember J. E. Yowell, who was assessor of Union county in 1865. He came up from California in 1860 and owned the old toll road between North Powder and Union.

The lady who afterward became his wife was born in the city of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1836, and they were married in Union about 1867. They were the parents of Thay and Clara Yowell, well known by many of our people.

The body of Mrs. Campbell was laid to rest beside that of her first husband in the Union cemetery.
