Samuel Alexander Sutherlin

Sam Sutherlin who has been living in town for a little over a year, working for Henry Kahse, died Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock, and Sunday, Dec 21st, was buried in the Frans Cemetery in Egypt.

His funeral was attended by many of the old settlers of Egypt, among whom he had lived and moved during the past twenty years or more. The funeral services were conducted under the auspices of the Fraternal Army, of which order deceased was a member.

The remains were accompanied by several members of the order from Davenport the last sad rites being witnessed at the home of J. S .Frans, brother-in-law of the deceased, Rev C C Gibson conducting the services. Nearly the whole of Egypt population followed the remains of their old friend and neighbor to the grave.

Mr. Sutherlin was born in Mt Stirling, Illinois, Nov 29, 1851, moved with his parents to Texas a few years later, where his youth and early manhood was spent, and where he was married. Three sons and a daughter were born to this union, all of whom are grown.

The family came to Egypt, Lincoln County, in 1881, where Mr. Sutherlin took up a homestead, and on which he resided for many years. He quit the farm about 14 years ago, and came to town, working in the Kahse feed yard. On Tuesday, the 16th inst, he was taken ill, and on the following day his sister, Mrs. Duncan, came in to wait on him, and on Friday, the 19th inst, he passed away.

Death resulted from kidney trouble, with which he had been more or less afflicted for several years. Deceased was among the first settlers to locate in Egypt, nearly 22 years ago, and passed through all the ups and downs of pioneer life. He was an industrious, well disposed citizen, whose death will recall early days in the little community of which he formed a part.

He leaves a wife, four children, a brother, sister, and several more distant relatives to mourn his departure."

Samuel Sutherlin was a son of William and Mary Melissa Young Sutherlin. The family history as supplied by Williston's shows that Samuel married Hattie Ann Donahue on Feb 11, 1874 in Denison, Grayson Co, TX. She was born May 15, 1860 in Shelby Co, TX and died on March 27, 1929 in Spokane Co, WA.

Their children were identified as: William Warner Sutherlin (b. 3 July 1875), Boncy B Sutherlin (b. 7 March 1877), Palmetta Elenor Sutherlin (b. 29 May 1880), Samuel Walter Sutherlin (b. 1 Feb 1882), and Chester Arthur Sutherlin (b. 13 June 1884). The child Boncy died in TX prior to the family coming to Lincoln Co, WA.
