DEATH OF A FORMER RESIDENT OF MUSCATINE COUNTY.
Mar 30, 1896 (hand written)
The Santa Rosa (Cal.) Press of March 30th announces the death of MRS. ALMIRA GREGORY, wife of Harvey Gregory, one of the best known farmers of that county, living two miles west of Santa Rosa. She died on Sunday, March 29th, after a long sickness. Mrs. Gregory was a daughter of Samuel Bamford, a pioneer of Muscatine county, who emigrated here from Indiana in 1839, she being then an infant. On the 13th of September, 1865, she was married to Harvey Gregory, also a resident of this county. In 1881 they removed to California, locating on the farm which is still the family home.
The Santa Rosa Press thus speaks of the deceased:
Mrs. Gregory was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church. Her funeral will be conducted by the Rev. E. P. Dennett of that church, at the Gregory residence at 2 o’clock Tuesday afternoon. During the latter part of Mrs. Gregory’s sickness she was attended by her three sisters and her three sons. Besides her surviving husband she leaves three sons—Frank H., who is with Wells Fargo & Co., at Portland, Blon S., at attorney at San Francisco, and Dr. L. C., of the Veteran’s Home, and a married step-daughter in Iowa.
She was a noble woman whose amiable qualities made her beloved by all who knew her. Her bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
