Mr. Bender was one of the early settlers of Glenn county and his first home here was on a farm near Willows. About eighteen years ago he and his family moved to Orland where he established a lumberyard. He remained here until two years ago when he sold his yard to the Sierra Lumber Company. He made his home while here with his daughter, Mrs. Hannagan, but upon her death removed to San Francisco to live with another daughter, Mrs. Marx.

The remains were brought to Willows Wednesday and the funeral took place from the Catholic church of that town. Rev. Father Vereker officiating, and he was buried in the Catholic cemetery near Willows.

Deceased was a native of Pennsylvania and was 76 years old at the time of his death. He crossed the plains as many another pioneers did with an ox team, and during his residence in California he made his home in the Sacramento valley.

He leaves a son, J. L. Bender of Orland, and two daughters, Mrs. Marx of San Francisco and Mrs. Bonner of Point Richmond, to mourn his loss. Transcribed by E.
