V) Page Two Heppner Gazette Times, Heppner, Oregon Thursday, Feb. 29, 1940 HARDMAN NEWS Pioneer of 1884 Buried at Hardman By HARDMAN HIGH SCHOOL Everybody in Hardman and vicin ity felt a definite loss last week when word was received here on Monday of the death of Mrs. James Allen. Marinda Henry was born in Berring county, Michigan, July 14, 1850, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Henry. In 1862 the Henrys came west, making the trip by ox team, and settled in Uniontown, Ore. The place was so named for Mr. Henry as he was the first Union man to settle there. The name has since been changed to Union. Two years later they went to Forest Grove and it was there in 1868 that Marinda Henry, then 18 years old, and James Harrison Allen were married. After two years the Aliens went to eastern Washington and settled on a farm on Whiskey creek near Dayton. In 1884 they moved to a ranch six miles west of Hard man in Rood canyon, and their home has been in or near Hardman ever since. Mr. Allen died here in April, 1915. She had been affectionately called Grandma Allen for years; and many of the Hardman people who have known her for only 20 years or so did not realize that her-name was Marinda. In fact many friends wrote to her using no other name than "Grandma Allen" on the letter. Grandma Allen for several years had spent the severest months at either Walla Walla or Freewater. She left Hardman in October, and at the time of her death was at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Roy W. Young in Walla Walla, where she had arrived the previous week. She became ill after a car ride on Monday, Feb. 19, and soon the relatives and friends realized that the end might be near. She lay down to rest and simply went to sleep about 2V hours after her ride, The funeral was held here at Hardman on Wednesday, Feb. 21, and in spite of the very bad condi tion of the roads, an unusually large number of friends and relatives as sembled at the little church. Mrs. Neal Knighten and Mrs. Marvin Brannon sang "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Near to the Heart of God," accompanied by Mrs. G. I. Clary. Rev. Martin Clark of Hepp ner had charge of the services. The pall bearers were Owen Leathers, Carey Hastings, Elwood Hastings, John Hastings, Fan Miller, Dick Steers. Burial was in the Hardman cemetery.
