Eleanor Furby Barnett was born in Ashland county, Ohio, on May 15th, 1829, and departed this life November 10th, 1916, in the 86th year of her life. She lived at the place of her birth for six years, then moved with her parents, Ephriam and Margaret Furby, to Washington county, Ill. After the death of her parents, she moved to Stark county, Ill., near Toulon, and made her home with an elder sister. There on June 10th, 1850, she married Elijah M. Barnett, and with him, in the year 1853, she crossed the plains with an ox team and settled in Linn county, Oregon, near Sodaville, where she lived for 29 years. She then removed to Haystack, in what is now Jefferson county, Ore. In 1909 she moved to Madras and continued to reside there until the time of her death.

When 15 years of age she joined the Christian Church and continued thru life a devout Christian.

Mrs. Barnett's husband died in 1904. A son, E.B. Barnett, died in 1884, and two daughters, Margaret J. Collver and Viola Barnett, died in 1900.

E. Sewall, the Christian minister at Culver, preached the funeral sermon at the Christian Church in Madras, and Rev. Ketler conducted the services at the cemetery at Grey [sic] Butte, wher her husband and two daughters are buried.

Mrs. Barnett had been an invalid for 11 years. Three years ago she fell and broke her hip, since which time she was confined to her bed and chair.

A large concourse of relatives, neighbors and friends attended the services at the church and followed the body to its last resting place.
NOTE: Although headstone gives death year as 1918, both her obit and the Oregon Death Index give 1916:
