Mrs. Eliza A. Ramsby, Passes Away at Molalla

Mrs. Eliza A. Ramsby, one of Clackamas County's well-known and highly respected pioneers, died at her home at Molalla on Wednesday, and was buried at the Adams Cemetery, the funeral being held from the family residence on Friday, and was well attended by many friends of the deceased. The singing was conducted by George Adams. In the absence of Mr. J. P. Cole, who was to have conducted the services at the funeral, George Ogle made a few brief remarks and read the following biographical sketch:

Eliza A. Smith was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, October 6, 1831. In 1845 she crossed the plains from Missouri to Oregon, and in the year of 1849 was married to Maxwell Ramsby, who passed away nearly two years ago.

Mrs. Ramsby was the mother of four children, Mrs. Alwilda Dickey, of Dickey Prairie: Mrs. Alice Wingfield, of the Dalles; H.S. Ramsby, of Molalla, and Casper Ramsby, all who survive except the latter, who died several years ago. Mrs. Ramsby also leaves two brothers, Sol Smith, of Silverton and J. Smith, of Silverton; and two sisters, Mrs. E. C. Barger, of Portland; Mrs. M. A. Barger, of San Francisco.
