Oregonian, 4 July 1899, XVI - DEATH OF IRIJAH BYARS - Well-known Resident of the East side Passes Away at his Home. - Irijah Byars, a pioneer of 1852, and a well-known resident of the East Side, died at his home on the northwest corner of East Burnside and East Seventh Streets last evening at 6:15. His health had been failing for the past two years and for seven months he had not been away from his home. For the past few days he sank rapidly, and yesterday morning recognized the members of his family for the last time, when he relapsed into a stupor, in which he continued till the end. Mr. Byars was born in Jackson county, Illinois in 1832, and with his parents moved to Iowa in 1851. In 1852 he started across the plains with a large party. At first he settled in Clark county, Washington, where he was married. His wife came with the same train. They took up a donation land claim on Lewis River, where they lived for three years, when they were driven away by the Indians, like many other fellows of that neighborhood. Coming across the river to Oregon, the family now settled at St. Johns, where they lived till 16 years ago, when they moved to the East Side. At St. Johns they lived 33 years, and there their children were born. Mr. Byars was a very genial and companionable man, and always maintained his integrity. His wife and the following children survive him: Mrs. Maria L. Jones, Portland; Mrs Mary Root, Oregon City; Mrs. Martha E. Allen and Mrs. Zylphia Sutton, San Francisco; Misses Lizzie L. and Izora Byars, at home. The funeral has not yet been arranged.
