Death of Early Pioneer
After having lived nearly a half century in Asotin County, Mrs. Angeline Wamsley died at her home in Asotin Monday afternoon, cause of death being chiefly old age. Funeral was held in Merchant's chapel in Asotin, being preached by Rev. F. F. Boothby, and burial was made in the Asotin cemetery, where her husband who died in 1886, and one daughter are buried.
Mrs. Wamsley, whose maiden name was Angeline Foust, was born in Union county, Pennsylvania, on April 7, 1843, and departed this life on 4th May - - making her slightly better than eighty-two years of age. She grew to womanhood in the county of her birth and was there united in marriage to Harvey S. Wamsley. Very soon after her marriage, she and her husband moved to Iowa, where residence was made only for a short time, when removal was again taken, this time to Nebraska locating near old Fort Kearney, living there about two years. Then she and her husband and small children started for the west, traveling by emigrant wagon and reached Dayton, Washington in the fall of 1877 where they remained until some time the following year, when they moved to Asotin County, locating in the Cloverland section. Two years later, came down to where Asotin now is, and built a home about where the Baumeister store building now stands, and farmed much of the present site of Asotin for two years or thereabouts when the family then moved to the mouth of Ten Mile creek and lived there for twenty years or more. Then selling out, Mrs. Wamsley and two or three children moved to Asotin, where she has since made her home.
Mrs. Wamsley was the mother of twelve children, eight of whom are still living as follows: Samuel Wamsley, Dayton; Will Wamsley, Mammoth, Oregon; Archie Wamsley, Lapwai, Idaho; Mrs. Florence Rostad, Fairbanks, Alaska; Mrs. Adeline Taylor, Olympia, Wash.; Miss Angeline Wamsley, of Asotin, who lived with her mother, and Mrs. Evelyn Lougee, of Spokane, Wash; Mrs. Lillie Marshall, of Buckeye, Arizona. All of the children, except Mrs. Rostad and Mrs. Marshall were at home to attend the funeral. One son and one daughter, either died in infancy or early childhood; and two married daughters died several years ago. There are thirty-four grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. Besides her own immediate relatives, given in the foregoing, she has one nephew in the west, Dr. Roy Foust, of Deary, Idaho, who was also in attendance at the funeral.
Mrs. Wamsley was characteristically a pioneer woman – - possessed of that open hearted hospitality and generosity, which the first settlers of the west had to a very great degree. She had always been held in the highest respect by people who knew; and even though she lived to ripe old age, all who knew her will be sorry to learn that she has answered the call which has taken her from this life.
