William M. Stephens, one of
the best-known and most highly-
respected citizens of Forest Grove,
passed away at his home in this
city at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon,
January 19, after a short illness
with lagrippe.
Deceased, who was one of five
children born to Thomas and
Elizabeth Stephens, was born at
Madison, Jefferson county, In­
diana, July 8th, 1831. In 1845,
with four wagons and thirteen
yoke of oxen, he crossed the plains
by the old Grant trail, locating
where Portland now stands and
four years later joined the gold-
seekers in the rush to California.
After prospecting for some time
with indifferent success, Mr.
Stephens engaged in freighting be­
tween Sacramento and George­
town. He served in the Rogue
River Indian war of 1853 and, in
1855, went to Red Bluffs, Calif.,
where he remained for a year,
leaving that place for Yuma, Ari­
zona, where he prospected for a
year. In 1858 he returned to Tort-
land for a few months, but soon
moved to Yamhill county, and a
little later went by water aud pack
mule to the Frazer river country.
The next year again found him
in Yamhill county, where he
farmed for about a year before he
moved to Polk county and bought
a farm. While here, (Aug. 22,

the couple lived and reared a fam­
ily until twelve years ago, when
they moved to Forest Grove.
Deceased is survived by his
widow, two daughters and four
sons, as follows: Mrs. John Allen,
of Vernonia; Mrs. Nettie Car-
stens, of Banks; Edward L., of
Timber; Alfred L.. of near Bux­
ton; Chas. R .,of Banks, and Fred­
erick C., who lived with his father
and mother in this city. Another
daughter, Clara, passed away
some time ago. •
Funeral services will be held at
the Forest Grove Undertaking
company chapel at 11 o ’clock to-
morrow (Thursday) forenoon, Rev.
Father Buck officiating.
In the death of “ Uncle Billy”
Stephens, Forest Grove loses one
of its most beloved citizens, the
widow a devoted husband and the
children a kind father. Peace to
his soul.
