Mary Jane Hiatt Stanford
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 25, 1872
Weber County
Utah, USA
Death: Dec. 29, 1956
Umatilla County
Oregon, USA

Daughter of Samuel Moore &
Mary Eleanor (Taylor) Hiatt...wife of
Thomas Barnett Stanford. She was the mother of 10 children: Roy, Delbert, Mabel, Ethel, Eva, Mae, Ada, Fernie, Blanche, Sadie (dec'd aged 3 months, 1914). Grandma was raised in Utah. After her marriage to Tom, they moved to Idaho, Washington, Alberta Canada, and in the Spring of 1915 back to the USA. They lived in Enterprise, OR until the Spring of 1916 when they moved to Milton (-Freewater, now), OR. Grandpa died in 1933. After his death she continued to live in their home with her younger children. In 1950 Blanche (my Mom) married Sims Clark and he moved in with them, so Mom could care for her mother. Grandma had many strokes that eventually paralized her throat so she could not swallow. Mom said the only thing she could keep down was tea. Grandma died when I was about 6, so my memories of her are only from my childhood. She loved chocolate peanut clusters and candy orange slices. They were always available. Grandma would have my Mom call me in from playing, so she could see for herself that I was 'safe'. Sometimes she would give my cousin, Stan, and I some money. He'd get 50 cents (he was older) and I'd get a quarter! I know I was a bit special to Grandma because I was her youngest and last grandchild. But, she loved all her grandchildren and great(s) grandchildren. [Headstones, neither have the correct death year!]

She died as you can see the last of December and the first stone was placed in Jan of the following year. I don't know if the family noticed right away or not, I didn't (I was only 6ish though). In the 1970's her surviving children decided they need to get new stones for their parents and older siblings in the cemetery. Also the aim was to correct the death date. They remembered it was off a year - and so changed it - but the wrong direction.
