The Clatskanie Chieftain November 12, 1948
A Letter of Sixteen Years Ago
Clatskanie, Oregon November 11, 1932
Old timers in this vicinity and those who have lived here long enough to know Milton Bryant, pioneer, are mourning his passing on Tuesday morning at the home of his son, R.C. Bryant.
He was truly an Oregon pioneer, being born on May 19, 1854 at Tigard. His father was a captain of a wagon train that made the trip across the plains in 1852. In 1857 the family came to Marshland to live. At that time Clatskanie was called Bryantville for Elihu Bryant, uncle of Milton. As a young man he worked on his father's place and fished. When he was 17 he carried the mail to Marshland from Oak Point where it was brought by boat from Portland. He went to McMinnville College. He was married in 1877 to Keziah York of Portland and they rented the place which is now the Tandy place and later lived on the Tom Colvin place. They moved to Hazel Grove later and since 1890 lived in Clatskanie most of the time with the exception of a short while in the mid-west and in Los Angeles, California.
His four sons survive him. The funeral services were yesterday afternoon.
