Orland Unit, Friday, 14 December 1928:

Mrs. Mary O'Hair Passes

Mrs. Mary O'Hair died at the home of her son, Roy O'Hair, in Stockton, on Monday, December 10, after only a short illness. She had gone to Stockton to pay a visit at the home of her son, and had been there only a short time when she suffered an attack of heart trouble, and passed away with only a brief warning.
Mrs. O'Hair was the daughter of Thomas Morrissey, one of the pioneers of Glenn county, and was born in Janesville, Wisconsin, on November 12, 1852. When a little girl of three years she moved with her parents to Charles City, Iowa, and there grew to young womanhood and was married to Mr. O'Hair.
In 1873 she came, with the first little one who was born to the union, to California, to join her husband, who had preceded her to prepare a home near Orland, and here the couple made their home. Three more children came to bless them, the four now left to mourn the loss of their mother being Wm. B. O'Hair, Roy O'Hair, Mrs. Maude SCRIBNER and Henry O'Hair, Jr.
Two brothers also are left, T. F. Morrissey of Redding, and J. B. Morrissey, of Redding and Orland. During the past four years Mrs. O'Hair made her home with J. B. Morrissey at Redding.
The deceased, through her long residence at this place was well known through this section of the valley, and respected and liked wherever she was known. The news of her death will be received with sincere regret, and her memory will be preserved by her large circle of friends.
The remains were brought to Chico on Wednesday, where short services were held, and the remains were laid to rest in the Chico cemetery. – Transcribed by E.
