Mrs. See Buried Pioneer Woman Laid to Rest at Summerville

Yesterday the body of Mrs. Ben See was laid to rest in the Summerville Cemetery.

Mrs. See was one of the pioneer women of this valley coming here in the fall of 1865 from Missouri, shortly after her marriage.

She was the daughter of James M. and Elizabeth Moore Hammack.

On the 22nd of December she would have been 71 years of age. She is the mother of eight children, seven of whom are living to mourn her demise.

The funeral was from the home of her daughter, Mrs. Perry Authur of May Park in La Grande. Many relatives and friends of the aged women were in La Grande from out of town points to attend the last rites.

Mr. and Mrs. Bert Caudle and Mrs. J. B. Cook of Lostine, were in La Grande to attend the funeral of the mother and mother-in-law Mrs. See.

Mr. See, the aged husband of the deceased, went to Lostine for a few days to be with his children. D. M. Hammack of Wallowa, was also in the city for the same purpose, returning this morning.

Believe this obituary was contributed by Storm See. Mrs. Perry Arthur was her daughter Anna See Arthur. May park was near the river in La Grande, Oregon.
