Five Per Cent Increase
Shown in Registration
Upon closing the registration
books of Morrow county, Clerk An
derson has figured the increase
over the preceding registration, and
finds it to be 5 per cent This is not
yet up to some former years, and
no doubt quite a number of those
eligible to vote have failed to get
their names on the lists, and will
thus be denied this privilege on
election day.
The total registration is 2297, dis
tributed as follows: republicans,
1067; democrats, 530; socialists, 20;
miscellaneous, 68; progressives, 3;
prohibitionists, 9.

Settler of 1870 Continuous
Resident; Made Home
in City Since 1908.
It was In the year 1870 when
Crocket Kirk came to this part of
Oregon from Lane county. He set
tled on Rhea creek, some seven
miles south of Heppner, at thej
mouth of Sanford canyon, and here
he lived many years under pioneer
conditions, and prospered. His pros
perity was the result however, of
patient and persistent toil. His
family was moved onto this Rhea
creek place the year of 1871, and
the home was there until they mov
ed to Heppner in 1908. During the
years spent on the ranch, Mr. Kirk
engaged largely in the stock busi
ness, principally sheep, in which he
met with success, and for a long
time he was numbered among the
prominent men engaged in that in
dustry in the county. He retired
from these activities on moving to .
Heppner, and enjoyed the fruits of
his labors in a quiet and unassum
ing manner.
Becoming afflicted with an incur
able ailment some three or four
years ago, Mr. Kirk was caused to
suffer much, but through it all was
patient and forbearing. His death
occurred at the home here on Sat
urday morning, and funeral ser
vices were held at the Christian
church on Monday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Rev. F. R. Spaulding, pastor
of the M. E. church delivering the
address, and burial was in the fam
ily plot at Masonic cemetery, with
Willow Lodge No. 66, L O. O. F., of
which he had long been a member,
committing the body to Its last rest
ing place with the beautiful service
of the order.
J. Crocket Kirk was born In
Kirksville, Mo., (the town being .
named after his grandfather, Jesse
Kirk, an early pioneer of that re
gion), on January 28, 1844, the son
of James T. and Virginia (Adkins)
Kirk. At the time of his death,
October 20, 1928, he was aged 84
years, 8 months and 24 days. In his
native city he received a good pub- '
lie school education, and there he
psased the years of his minority,
going in 1863 to Henderson county.
Illinois, where he spent two years.
In 1865 the entire family crossed
the plains by ox team to the Wil
lamette valley, settling first in Yam
hill county and then removed to
Lane county. It took six months to
make the trip across, and the jour
ney was safely made without any
interference from Indians. In this
same train was his future wife,
Mary McConnell, whom he did not
meet until their families settled on
adjoining farms in Lane county.
near Junction City. It was in 1870
when he came to what was then a
part of Umatilla county and took
up a homestead on Rhea creek.
He was married to Miss Mary A.
McConnell, July 19, 1868, and to this
union four children were born, two
of whom now survive, Mrs. Emma
Jomes of Heppner and E. L. Kirk of
Eugene. Mrs. Kirk passed away
July 11, 1927. Besides the two chil
dren, he is survived by nine grand
children and three great grandchil
dren; also two brothers, Chas. Kirk
of Oak Grove, Calif., and Thos.
Kirk of Junction City, Oregon.
Mr. Kirk was a highly respected
citizen of this community where he
had lived so long, and this respect
was attested by the very large at
tendance of the older residents here
at the funeral services. Many very
beautiful floral pieces were banked
about the casket and placed at the
grave, speaking louder than any
words the esteem in which he was
held. Mr. Kirk was a lifelong mem
ber of the Methodist church, and
also held membership for long years
