The Death of Clarissa Lucas Aiken
Jessie Ellen Stephens wrote of her grandparents:
"On our arrival at Boise [in 1906],1 we found Grandmother Clarissa Aiken seriously ill with diabetes mellitus, from which she died ... Grandfather Aiken, as a very young man, fought in the Civil War, and later in the Indian Wars. After the death of Grandmother Aiken in May 1907, he sold the home place in Boise and went to live at the Veterans Home, Boise, though part of the time he spent at the home of his daughter, Agnes Weston, when too bored with the Veterans!"
