Death of a Pioneer—Mrs. Kirk Sheldon has just returned from Pioneer, Clarke County, Wash., where she went to attend the funeral of her father, Joseph Charlton, who died Wednesday, January 2. Mr. Charlton was 71 years old at the time of his death, and himself and his wife who survives him, were pioneers of 1845. They took up a piece of land on Sauvie's island, containing 800 acres, which they still own. Mrs. Charlton is a sister of John F. Miller, of Salem. Mr. and Mrs. Charlton are well-known pioneers.

Oregonian, Saturday, January 5, 1895, page 5, column 2.
