Jacob Risley Dead.
Jacob S. Risley ,one of the most promi
nent farmers and citizens of Clackamas
county, died at his home between Ore
gon City and Miiwaukie, Friday morn
ing at 8 o'clock. Last winter Mr. Ris
ley contracted the grip, and he never
fully recovered from the effects of it.
Tbe evening before he received an at
tack of violent coughing which burst a
blood vessel in his lungs, and he grew
rapidly worse until death ended his suf
ferings. The deceased was born December 1,
1832, at Delphas. O., and crossed the
plains with his parents in 184S. They
settled in Yamhill county, near where
St. Joseph is now situated. Two years
later they moved to Clackamas county
and took up the homestead where the
handsome Risley residence now stands.
Mr Risley was married September 20,
1857, to Mary 8. Scholl, who died June
There was probably no better known
man in Clackamas county than Mr.
Risley. He was a man not afraid of
work, and always took a great interest
in his large farm, which is one of the
best in the county. In politics Mr. Ris
ley was a strong democrat, but opposed
to silver. Eight years ago he ran for
county judge on the democratic ticket,
but was defeated by Judge Gordon E.
Hayes. His son, O. W., ran for county
commissioner at the last election on the
citizen ticket. He was a prominent OcM
Fellow, belonging to Oswego Lodge, No.
93, and Falls Encampment, No, 4, of
Oregon City. Besides the large farm in
Clackamas county, he had large prop
eity interests in Portland. Two sons
and one daughter survive him, as fol
lows : John F.andCha les W. Risley and
Mrs. Harvey E. Starkweather, of Mii
waukie. The funeral was held Monday
and was largely attended.
Grandma Heiser Dead.
Mrs Carl Heizar, aged 73 years, 2
months and 2)4 days, died at her home
at Damascus, Friday, June 20th, She
had been afflicted with cancerous tumor
and had been confined to her bed for
seven weeks. She was born in Germany
and came to Damascus in 1880. Seven
children out of ten and her husband pre
ceded her in death. The living childreu
are Fritz II., Robert C. and Otto F.
The funeral on Sunday was one of the
largest in the history of Damascus and
flowers were offered . in quantities
that more than covered the
grave. Tbe Modern Woodmen team in
uniform acted as pull bearers. Grand
ma Heiser wea a respected and honored
resident of that neighborhood and all re
