Elgin Pioneer Dies
Woman Who Came Here in 1853 Passes Away
Mrs. Melissa Garrett, aunt of Judge Slater of La Grande, died at her home near Elgin last evening. She was 80 years of age and was one of the early pioneers of Oregon. Her experience in the west would make an interesting volume and the Evening Observer expects a near future date to have an article on it from the pen of Judge Slater.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon and interment will be made in the Summerville cemetery.
