Death Of A Pioneer
David B. Hilts. Aged Pioneer.
Joins the Silent Majority

On last Tuesday morning after months of painful suffering David B. Hilts passed away and on the following day the mortal remains of one of the pioneers of Grande Ronde found a lasting resting place in the Union cemetery.

David Hilts was one of the oldest residents of this county, living here for twenty seven years, an upright honorable man and possessing the friendship and respect of all who know him. Many years ago he became a member of the Methodist Church and up to the hour of his death was a consistent christian with an abiding faith in the great promises of the hereafter.

He leaves a wife and two sons to mourn his loss, both of the latter being away from home.

The funeral took place yesterday afternoon from the Methodist Church under the auspices of Union lodge No. 23 I.O.O.F. of which he was a charter member.

In Union, January 28th, David B. Hilts, aged 62 years, 5 mos., 13 days.

Eastern Oregon Republican, Thursday
January 30, 1890
