to mourn her loss.
The departed moved to the Hay
stack country in 1877 with her hus
band and children. She was a real
Oregon pioneer as in those days
neighbors were few and far apart,
and brave was the heart of "The
Little Mother" as she was lovingly
called by those far and near, to
withstand the dangers of the fron
tier with a family of small children.
In those days medical aid was not
to be had, and the little mother was
the country doctor for all in a ra
dius of twenty miles and never were
the roads too bad or the night too
dark for this courageous little soul
to give aid to some needy or dis
tressed person. At one time after
ministering to a dying mother, she
carried twin babies home with her
to mother them until such time as
they were old enough for their fa
ther to care for. The two mention
ed are Claud and Clyde Hughes, the
latter residing at West Linn, near
Oregon City. Claud has never been
heard of since the World war.
She was indeed a "friend in
need." She was again united in
marriage with William Collins In
1891, and has lived in the Haystack
community ever since, always ren
dering help and comfort wherever
possible. It is indeed a loss to the
community and the state at large
when a pioneer like the "Little Mo
ther" is called beyond.
Little Mother you are gone
How we miss your smiling face.
Other friends may come and go;
None can ever tak your place.
You have soothed the actin g heart.
You have dried the falling tears;
Shame on him who could forget
All you've done these many years!
You have earned a" rich reward:
When we follow, one by one,
May our hands, iike yours, be filled
With good deeds which we have done.
All honor to The Pioneer Mothers.
The deceased spent several win
ters at Heppner with her son, Geo.
Hayden, and leaves many friends
in this vicinity, many of whom had
known and loved her before moving
to Heppner. (Contributed.)
