Death and Burial of an Old-Time Resi
- dent James Watkms.
James Watkins, who has resided
for more than thirty . years a few
miles, west of Corvallis died sudden
ly Wednesday, i He started about
noon to go from the house to one of
the outbuildings, a few yards dis
tant. When half way1 there, he
suddenly fell in a heap on the
ground. His wife from the house
heard him groan, as did also Albert,
a son, hoeing in a garden near at
hand. Both hastened to the side
of. the prostrate man, and lifted
him into a sitting posture in a chair
for the purpose of carrying him in
to the house. He was able to talk,
and demurred to the plan. He in
sisted on proceeding to the place
where he had started, and was as
sisted there. Reaching the place
he began gradually to lean moje
heavily on his son. Alarmed at the
symptoms, those present carried the
old man into the house, after reach
ing which, the latter spoke but a
few words, and within a few min
utes.'passed away. The end came
shortly after noon.
In the early days, the deceased
came to California from the vicinity
of Des Moines, Iowa, which was
his early home. After residing a
number of years in the Golden
State, Mr. Watkins moved with his
family in about the year 1870 to
Benton county, where he has since
resided, respected and revered by
all. He was a member of the old
school Baptist church. One daugh
ter, residing in the vicinity of the
old home'near Des Moines, Iowa,
the widow and several sons are the
survivors of the immediate family.
Among the latter are Albert and
Marion of Benton county, James,
who is in the railway mail service-,
and . Ezra, who conducts a candy
store in Portland. One son is in
Klondike, and others are in Eastern
Oregon. Of the children only the
daughter is married.
Mr. Watkins was aged about 75
or 80 years.
