John A. Cates Responds to The Final Summons

John A. Cates, aged seventy, died yesterday at the home of his son, Cecil Carter, near Alicel. His demise was due to injuries following an accident by a fall at the son’s farm a week or so ago and which resulted in a condition of partial paralysis.

The deceased was a member of one of the earlier pioneer families of Union County, his parents settling on a homestead above Union in the early sixties.

The surviving members of the original family are Robert S. Cates, former county clerk of this county and now a resident of Kingman, Kansas; Ed E. Cates, of Sparta; W. A. Cates, of Vancouver, Wash.; George, of Baker, and an only sister, Mrs. Josephine Ison, also of Baker, whose husband was former district attorney for eastern Oregon.-La Grande Observer
