The Late Mrs. Landphear.
The following extract from Mrs.
Landi hoar's funeral sermon las been
kindly furnished ns for publication,
and will doubtless prove of interest to
those who knew her
Mrs. Hester Ann Landphear was
born at a place called "Warm Springs,
-twn comity, lrgima, august !tli,
17SG, and was therefore at the time
of her death nearly ninety years old.
kne was a girl of twelve summers. when
Washington died, and no doubt re-
membered that event. She w.as a
married woman long before the tele
graph was discovered, or railroads
j were operated, ana so witii ail tne
great indentions of the last fifty years,
she was a married woman before they
were known. When Grandmother
Landphear was born jew York ras a
city of ten or twelve thousand inhabi
tants not as large as the city of Port
land is ta-day. She enjoyed' life in
her humble way, almost to her dying
day always cheerful never gloomy
nor desponding. For the past ten
years at least, constantly realizing that
her end was near. Perfectly resigned
to the will of her Heavenly Father,
she was ever read' for the summons
to call her hence. At Warm Springs,
Virginia, Miss Hester Ann Pose was
married to Mr. Dawson and shortly
after removed to Bartholomew county,
in the State Indiana, where she lived
for many years. She had six cliildren
by this husband Cyrus, John, James,
Franklin, Jesse and infancy. This last
was the only one of the six wiio ac
companied her mother to this country.
j She was the wife of Mr. Luke Taylor,
and died in this county in the year
1862, and her remains are deposited in
the graveyard on Clatsop Plains. All
the boys are dead also. Jesse the
fifth son was a volunteer in the Union
Army and was killed in battle. Several
of her children married, and to them
were born eleven grandchildren. Af
ter the death of Mr. Dawson in Indiana,
she removed to the State of Illinois,
and made her home at Batavia, Ivane
county. Here Mrs. Dawson married
Mr. Jonas Landphear. We were in
the habit of pronouncing her name
Lamphear. But the proper way was
Landphear. This was the way Mr.
Landphear always wrote it. There
were no children by this marriage. In
the year of 1S47 they decided, with
epiite a number of others to seek a new
home on the Pacific slope, and on the
12th day of April of that year they
commenced their long and tedious
journey across the continent, and at
the end of the seventh month they
arrived at The Dalles of the Columbia
river. There were 300 in all in the
party. At The Dalles, Mr. Landphear
and Mr. Taylor constructed a boat in
order to descend the Columbia, and in
the course of three weeks they were
ready to start. All went well until
they came to the Cascades where the
boat struck a rock and all came near
losing their lives, but by good man
agement the boat was extricated from
her perilous position, and in due time
these two families landed safely at the
Hudson Bay's Trading Post at Van
couver, Washington Territory, then
called Oregon. Determined to see the
Pacific ocean, and if possible to find
a home near the surging breakers, thejr
took passage in a small craft called the
Launch, owned by Jack Strong and
Robert Alexander. This craft still
lies on the mud fiats in the vicinity of
Mr. Fen-ell's saw mill. In the course
of a week they landed near Tanzy
Point, and there made their home
within a few miles of the ocean. They
lived there for two years, and then
moved to town, and took up their
abode in a small
log cabin at the
rear- of the present house, which
she so lately occupied., ?his house
was then in the woods, and it' was
considered no very easy task to get
from the beach, the only, public .high
way, to this humble dwelling. In
about the year 18 :i the present
house was erected by Mr. Luke -Taylor,
ancthe old log cabin was torn
down. What a ..change has time
made ! A dense forest and jungle, as
Grandmother saw it. in 1847, is ow
a well built up town "with the forest , a
mile-in the distance, and rapidly re
ceding, nere sue passect away an
Sunday last, June 4th, after residing
for twenty-seven years on the same lot
on which she first settled, beloved by
all who knew her, for her kind dispo
sition and many social virtues.- She
was brought up in religions ways, tfay
parents who were noted for their rs
ligious principles'. Her f atherlie has.
told me, was such an expert ins .sacred
learning, that he rot the best !of nearly
all who ventured to argue with liiai
on religious subjects. She joined
the Methodist church in Indiana, but
after she came, to this country ahe - did
not identify herself with any religions
body some times attending one and
then the other of the jn:otestant bod
ies here established. She died as a
christian ought, with an unwaverin
faith in Christ, and fully resigned
to the will of heiv Heavenly Father.
Her P rayer-book was jresciited to her
many years ago by the good Bishop
Scott, and she prized it. much,. net
only on account of the donor, whom
she ever spoke of with love and af -fection,
but also on account of its
blessed teachings. Grandmother Lane -phear
was particularly fond of missi,
hence her great desire for persons to:,
sing with her in her last sicknasB.
Mr. Wadharns, of Portland, gftv-tlicr
great pleasure by singing for her one
evening for about an hour, 4f Jesus
Savior of my soul" and c'learor any
God to thee" she seemed to enjoy most.
Frequently exclaiming in her feehi.
way during the singing, "Blessed
Jesus, how sweet, how precious' Shfc
seemed to have a premonition thai.
she would not recover, that this sick
ness was her last. The reason she as
signed fortius-was, that many years
ago when in the State of Illinois ahes
had a Tcmarkable dream, andfthis
dream seemed to come back to ''her
with all its former vividfie
and force. I am not able to relatc-
thc dream as she told it to me. 'flu?
substance of it was, that she was tftlceii
to heaven, and that there she Ii4iir$
the most enrapturing music, both 'ti
strumental and vocal, and there"k!f
beheld our blessed Saviour, in iiiefile
glory, and her raptures were inert ts&r
br meeting and embracing a de:-.r sis
ter of hers who had died some tmie
previously; and as she related this4
dream and talked of her dear .sisW
and the blessed Jesus the tears rolled;
down her cheeks, adding, at the sam
time, this dream made' such an effect
upon her that she had never got over it.
It is the lot of few to have as riiany sin-
cere and self-denying fiiends as Grand
mother Landphear had, and this slit
was conscious of1 and ever frratefu
Among the male portion of the com
munity, she seemed to be ihe particu

and river pilots and their- families and
some of the first settlers. Many it is
true, were very kind to her, but" those;
were her particular friends.
