PIONEER'S LIFE IS WORTHY
Work of Mrs Mary Holman in Many Lines of Usefulness.
Mrs. Mary E. Holman, who died at the home of her son, Herbert Holam, in this city, on Friday last, was a prominent figure in Oregon affairs.
She was born in Indiana, October 22, 1836, being the daughter of Benjamin Huntington, who brough his family across the plains to Oregon in 1852.
At the age of 18 years she was married to Charles Holman, a pioneer Portland merchant, and the head of one of the first transporation companies to place boats on the local rivers.
As a member of the Episcopal Church she was one of the ablest and most helpful supporters of the late Bishop Scott, the first missionary bishop of the church in Oregon, and throughout her life was connected with St. Stephen's Church parish.
She had a strong feeling of patriotism, being adirect descendant of James Huntington, a non-commissioned officer in the Revolutionary War, and a close relative of Samuel Huntington, who signed the Declaration of Independence.
She was a member of the Oregon Pioneer Association and was interested in the Oregon Historical Society.
Although a woman of strong and foreceful character, shw was much beloved for her tender and womanly qualities. Her loving service was always freely given to neighbors or friends in times of illness or trouble. her days were filled with unostentatious acts of charity and kindness and she as the center of a happy family life and altogether a type of ideal womanhood. She was the mother of five sons and five daughters, of whom the following survive her: Mrs. H. W. Ogilbe, of Berkely, Cal.; Mrs. J. A. Malarkey and Miss Carrie Holman and Herbert, Charles, William C., Benjamin and Rufus C. Holman, all of this city. (The Oregonian, 30 Aug 1910)
