Archbold, Frances J. Archbold

Spirit of Democracy, Woodsfield, Ohio dated February 6, 1913

From the Hillsboro, Ore., Argus we clip the following account of the death of the wife of a former Woodsfield citizen, whom many of our older citizen will remember.

Mrs. Frances J. Archbold, wife of Judge Alston C. Archbold, died at the family home Monday, January 20, 1913, after an illness covering several months. She was the daughter of the late Judge Ralph Wilcox, who settled on a donation claim in North Hillsboro, in 1845. She was born at Independence, Missouri, in 1844, and was but a year old when her parents crossed the plains to Oregon.

She was wedded to Alston C. Archbold, who survives, August 20, 1865.

Eight children were born to the union –Ralph and Mary C., who passed away several years ago; Eva M. Loeb, of Ridgefield, Wash., wife of Geo. Loeb, a merchant; Virginia M. And John M. Of Portland, and Hugh, Elizabeth R., and
Alston C. Jr., of Hillsboro.

Her mother, two sisters, Mrs. Carrie Goode, Grants Pass and Miss Minta, Portland, and one brother, John, of Portland survive.

For over sixty-seven years Mrs. Archbold had been a resident of Hillsboro, and she was held in the highest esteem. Her daily life characterized the highest nobility and womanhood, and her passing will be mourned by hundreds
of friends. The family has the sympathy of the entire community.

Mrs. Archbold was a devoted member of the M.E. church, the Ladies’ Aid Society, and the Woman’s Relief Corps. In the latter organization for years she had held important offices, and in the church she was ever a willing worker.

The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon, at 2:30, at the M.E. church, and interment was in the Masonic cemetery.
