OBITUARY: 
WAS PIONEER OF 1847
Mrs. Martha Brown Dies of Paralysis at Home of Her Son.
Mrs. Martha Ann Brown, an Oregon pioneer of 1847 and widow of the late George Brown, died at the old homestead on Salt Creek, Tuesday, March 18, 1907, aged 72 years and 6 months. Her death was caused by paralysis. 
Mrs. Brown was a native of Cole county, Missouri, and was a daughter of William and Elizabeth Hines. William Hines died at Salmon Falls on Snake River while the family was crossing the plains to Oregon in 1847. The mother and children came on to Oregon and settled in Yamhill county, where the daughter, Martha, was married to George Brown in 1850. Mr. Brown purchased a 640-acre farm on Salt Creek in Polk county and lived there with his family until a few years ago, when he retired from farming and moved to Dallas. He died of paralysis in this city about five years ago. 
Mrs. Brown is survived by seven children – William and James Brown, of Condon, Oregon; Mrs. May Thacker, of Eastern Washington; Mrs. Clark Gist of Woods, Oregon; Edgar, Alvin and Fay Brown of Salt Creek, Oregon. 
Mrs. Brown united with the Baptist church in 1855 and remained an active and useful member as long as she lived. She was a woman of many fine qualities and was greatly beloved by all her friends and neighbors. 
The funeral was held from the old home Wednesday afternoon, where a highly appropriate sermon was preached by Rev. C.H. Davis, of Dallas. The remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground on the farm.
