Robert Young Currin was born March
8, 1866, at Currinsville in Clackamas
county., Ore., of very early pioneer par
ents, his age being 73 years, 1 month
and 26 days at the time of his death.
His father Hugh Currin, who came
from Virginia, crossed the plains to
Oregon in 1845, and his mother Diona
Young from Missouri in 1847. They
were married in 1849 and lived upon
their donation land claim where the
village of Currinsville is located about
25 miles south of Portland till their
Robert was the third child in the
family of four. As a child he went to
school when the school master lived In
his home and then to the little school
house nearby and later to Brownsville,
Ore., where he boarded with his mar
ried sister.
W hen a younr man of 19 he left home
and went to Heppner in Eastern Ore
gun, where he lived for many years.
When he was 24 vears of age he was
united in marriage to Prudence Ayers
and of this union three cliitdren were
born. Amy, Ivy and Clyde. Soon after
his marriage he engaged in sheep rais
ing which he continued for Many years,
the only interruption being for a short
time when he had a large number of
horses grazing in Washington and la
ter moving his family to Currinsville,
wnere mey liven aDout two years, Dut
not liking that climate he again went
back to Heppner and resumed the sheep
In the early days when Indians were
bad he was a scout under General How
ard in the Blue Mountains and about
Pendleton. That was in the year 1878.
In 1897 he brought his sheep to Idaho
and the family moved to Payette where
they have lived in adjoining commun
ities till the present time.
Mr. Currin led an active outdoor life
until he became afflicted in his ad
vanced years with the lingering illness
which he bore with great patience,
death coming at 2:30 Saturday morning,
May 8. at his home on Little Willow
creek, in the presence of his family.
"Bob" Currin, as he was familiarly
known, leaves many friends who re
member his meticulous honesty and
willingness to sacrifice himself for the
sake of helping a friend. His belief in
God who created and rules the world
now as well as in the hereafter was
direct and left no room in his mind for
forebodings or superstition as to the
final resting place of his soul, believing
lhat the creator who placed him here
would likewise be the guardian of im
mortal life If such there is.
The funeral was held from the Epis
copal cnurch Monday at 2:30, conducted
bv Rev. ThomAS Ashwnrth whan b
large gathering of friends attended to
pay their last tribute of respect. In
terment took place in Riverside cem
etery .
The many friends of Wlllard Her
ren were pleased to note that he
was able to be up town on Friday,
and as usual had his place on the
election board of North Heppner
precinct For many months Mr.
Herren has been confined at home,
suffering from a serious dropsical
condition, but he is now able to get
around quite well.
