"Oregon Pioneer of 1843"
Mrs. Susan Smith, who died at Yoncalla, December 30, 1907, was the daughter of Charles and Melinda Applegate, and was born in Cole County, Missouri, May 25, 1831. At the age of 12 years she crossed the plains with her parents, who first settled in Polk County, but moved in 1850 to the Umpqua Valley, taking up a donation claim near the present town of Yoncalla.
Mrs. Smith was married March 11, 1851, to Robert Smith, who was also a pioneer of 1843. After their marriage they moved to their donation claim near Yoncalla, where they resided until the death of her husband, which occurred on May 5, 1888.
Mrs. Smith lived in the old home until 1893, when she moved to Yoncalla, where she had since resided. She is survived by her seven children. Richard, of Spokane, Wash.; Fannie, wife of Edward Johnson, of Colfax, Wash.; Robert Franklin, of Pullman, Wash.; Jerome, who resides on a portion of the old homestead; Ellen, wife of L. E. Warner, who also resides on a portion of the old homestead; Albert L., of Marshfield, and Elmer C., of Portland.
Mrs. Smith, who was familiarly known as Aunt Susie by her many friends, had been ill for the past two years, during which time she bore her sufferings cheerfully. She was attended by her son Albert, who went from Marshfield two years ago and devoted himself to his mother furing her long illness.
