Octogenerian in Moutain Climb:
Mrs. Mary S. Crockett, who celebrated her 80th birthday on December 18 (1929), started the new year right by climbing to the top of Mount Sugar Loaf on New Year's day. She was accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Charles E. (Dolly) Lewis and family. The trip is a difficult feat for a much younger person, but after the steep climb among boulders, sage and cacti, a wonderful view of the city and surrounding country may be had. Mrs. Crockett commented that "it was well worth the trip." She suffered no ill effects from the climb and did not appear to be as tired as some of the other members of the party. Mrs. Crockett is slight of build, weighing ony about 95 pounds, but is very active about her daily tasks. She was born in Missouri, but her people were pioneer Kentuckians. Her father (John Wesley Slavens), a Methodist minister, served in the Confederate Army, and her grandfather (Thomas M. Slavens) took part in the War of 1812. Mrs. Crockett's home is in Orofino, Idaho, a little lumbering center on the Clearwater river. The Crocketts were among the first settlers there some 30 years ago. For the past two years Mrs. Crockett has been visiting her daughters, Mrs. O. T. Addington of 166 East Sixth Street and Mrs. Charles E. Lewis of East Blaine Street. Mrs. Crockett is the mother of 11 children, eight of whom are living, 37 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.
