"Cherryville Woman Dies"

After a brief illness Mrs. Mehala Stone died on January 27th, and was laid to rest in the cemetery at Cherryville on Sunday afternoon.

Mehala Hannahs was born on June 5, 1831, in Ohio. She was married to Elijah Stone in 1861 in Shelby County, Missouri. They crossed the plains by ox-team in 1862 and lived in Oregon seven years.

They then moved to California, but returned to Oregon in the Fall of '73 and later settled on the present homestead near Cherryville.

Mrs. Stone was the mother of seven children, six of whom survive her. The husband died in 1879 at the age of 78 years.

"Pioneer Woman Dies"

Mrs. Mahala Stone, who died recently at her home near Cherryville on the Mount Hood wagon road, was a pioneer of 1862. She was born June 5, 1830, in Ohio, was married to Elijah Stone in 1861, and crossed the plains to Oregon in 1863. After remaining in Oregon seven years they removed to California, but returned to Oregon in 1872. They then settled on a homestead near Cherryville, where they lived until 1879 when Mr. Stone died at the age of 78 years. Mrs. Stone is survived by six children.

* Note the date of death from the obituary does not match the date on the headstone. The headstone, appearing to be in excellent condition, may have been erected many years after Mahala's death.
