From the Cloverdale Reveille, Thursday, March 19, 1936:

"MRS. A. BENTLEY, PIONEER OF 1865, DIES WEDNESDAY

Mrs. Harriett A. Bentley, who crossed the plains in a covered wagon in 1865 to make her home in Sonoma county, died on Wednesday at Santa Rosa, where she had been taken because of illness.

She was born in 1857 near Minneapolis. The trip across the plains was made when she was but 8 years of age. The family first settled in Sebastopol and then moved to Cloverdale, where she had made her home ever since pioneer days.

In 1879 she was married to Abram Bentley.

Surviving Mrs. Bentley are three children - Jessie B. Surryhne of Santa Rosa, Rufus W. Bentley of San Rafael and J. Elbert Bentley of Cloverdale. There are also four grandchildren - Betty Gardner of Woodacre, Marion Bentley of El Portal and Barbara and Beverly Bentley of San Rafael. Mrs. Bentley also left a brother E. A. (sic) Casey of Huntington Park, Los Angeles.

Mrs. Bentley was a splendid old lady, beloved by a vast circle of friends. Cheerful, self-reliant and strong, she got much out of life and by her example gave much in return to all who knew her.

Funeral services will be held on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock at her home in Cloverdale. Dr. H. S. Davidson will officiate and interment will be in Riverside cemetery."
