HIGHLAND October 15, 1909
The funeral of G. W. Mayfield esteemed neighbor and fellow citizen, had the largest attendance ever seen at Clarkes Cemetery. Everything was very beautiful on that lovely Sunday morning, the sun shown forth in splendor and glory. The eloquent minister of the Methodist Church of Estacada made an extemporaneous talk on the grounds, which was very practical. Eighty-nine vehicles full of people followed the remains of the deceased to the last resting place, Mr. Mayfield was an old pioneer, a useful man, a good citizen, a loving husband and kind father. Of him it can truly be said. "None knew him but to love him, none named his but to praise him."
