William H. Peninger died at his home
near Tolo, last Saturday morning, after
a short illness, aged 50 years, 4 r.onths
and 24 days.
Deceased was a native son o f Jack-
son county, having been bom on the
same farm on which he died on Feb
ruary 13, 1856, and at the time of his
death he was next to the oldest native
son of the county. He was well known
as a citizen and respected as a man and
a neighbor. His wife died several
years ago, and three children, two sons
and one daughter, none of whom have
yet attained their majority, are left to
mourn his loss.
He was a member o f the Knights of
Pythias and Workmen orders and the
funeral, which was held Sunday at
12:30, was in charge of the members of
these orders. A short service was held
at the home, the interment being made
at the Jacksonville cemetery.
Daniel Hodges, an old and respected
resident of the Agate country, died at
his home near that place, Friday, July

“ The Best on Earth ”
James Stewart, a respected citizen
of Jackson county, died at his home
near Medford last Saturday evening,
aged about 73 years.
Deceased was a native of Maine, but
came to this valley about 21 years ago.
He had made a stady of fruit growing
for years and on coming to this coun
try he at once recognized its possibili
ties in that direction and at once en
tered that business on an extensive
scale. Five years after arriving here
he shipped the first carload o f fruit
ever shipped from this county and five
years later his shipments for the year
reached 95 cars.
He was a prominent member o f the
Masonic fraternity, that order having
had charge of the funeral services,
which took place at Medford Monday
afternoon at 2 o ’clock.
