Bio:

James I. Minor, retired marine engineer, died suddenly Saturday, October 6, at his ranch near Battle Ground, Wash. The funeral was held in Portland Tuesday, with interment at Mount Calvary cemetery.

Mr. Minor was born in Portland, September 3, 1868, the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Minor. His father was an engineer on the steamer George S. Wright at the time the boat was shipwrecked on a return voyage from Alaska, January, 1873, with no survivors. After the death of his father he lived with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Ira W. Lacey, in Clackamas county.

He was educated in Portland schools and at the University of Oregon. Later he became a marine engineer and was well known in all Pacific coast ports. On October 8, 1895, Mr. Minor married Luella Lea Bridenstine and resided in Portland until he moved to his acreage on the Canyon road, which has been his home for the past 25 years. He was visiting at his Washington ranch at the time of his death. He is survived by his widow, two sons, James E. and Lewis W. Minor; his foster parent, E. E. Eberhard, and three sisters, Mrs. A. P. Christensen and Mrs. A. J. Gratton of Portland and Sister M. Eugenia of the order of St. Marys of Oregon, of Milwaukee, Wis.
