Scott Hallgarth, one of the North End pioneers, after a short sickness departed this life, Thursday afternoon, September 27, at his home in Lost Prairie. Mr. and Mrs. Richards, son-in-law and daughter of the deceased, came in from the Grande Ronde valley to attend the funeral which took place Friday afternoon.
Services were conducted in the M.E. church by Rev. Lines, after which the remains were interred in the M.E. Cemetery. Mrs. Hallgarth accompanied her daughter home the last of the week and will perhaps make her home in the Grande Ronde valley.
