Friends here have been advised of the death of Dr. F.D. HasBrouck, which occurred at his home at Hood River, Oregon, on Wednesday, February 19. Dr. and Mrs. HasBrouck are both well known here as Mrs. HasBrouck was Miss Maude Burdic, a Genesee girl. Both taught in the Genesee school twenty years ago and after Dr. HasBrouck completed his dental course at Portland he was engaged here for a time in the practice of his profession.

Mrs. HasBrouck has a host of friends here who will sympathize with her in her sad bereavement.

The following clipping relative to the death of Dr. HasBrouck was taken from the Hood River paper:

Dr. Frank D. Hasbrouck, who moved here from Potlatch, Idaho, last March, purchasing an orchard place on Almeda Way, died Wednesday, February 19, following a protracted illness. Dr. HasBrouck, who was a prominent dentist at Potlatch, came to Hood River for his health. The funeral was held here in charge of the Masonic lodge.

Dr. HasBrouck is survived by three brothers and a sister, in addition to his widow. They are: H.L. HasBrouck of Hood River, Mrs. Benton E. Covert and Corland R. and Roy Edgar HasBrouck of Leslie, Mich. --Genesee News.


Miss Helen Gesellchen, who attends the Ursuline Academy, was called to her home at Genesee by the death of her grandmother, Mrs. Henrietta Baumgartner.


Born to Rev. and Mrs. F.J. Schmidt, a daughter, Sunday afternoon, March 9th.


Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Percy Doyle, northwest of Moscow, a son, March 4. Mrs. Doyle is at present in Moscow with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. I.L. Collins.


Today, Mrs. Julia Summerfield, commonly known as Grandma Summerfield, is celebrating her 77th birthday. She came to Moscow in 1871, at which time her first husband, Mr. Warmoth, took up the homestead two and one-half miles east of Moscow. The old homestead is still owned by Mrs. Summerfield and it has the remarkable record of never having been plastered by a mortgage, an unusual record in this country.

Grandma crossed the plains in 1865 from Missouri and went to Sacramento, California, and from there by wagon train to Moscow, which ahs since been her home. She has truly been a home body, never having been more than 50 miles from Moscow in all these years.

When she came here there was no Moscow, only a rolling prairie of bunch grass. She was one of the committee, who selected the site of the Moscow cemetery and her husband, Mr. Warmoth, was the eighth person buried there. Her second husband, Mr. Summerfield, died 21 years ago.

She was, during the Indian scare, in the fort of the pioneers for several months. This fort was located near the present location of the Ursuline Academy and was called the "Upper Fort," another being located below Moscow. The Indians here were not hostile but the settlers on Camas Prairie had suffered from their depredations and those around Moscow sought protection in the fort for fear of trouble.

Mrs. Summerfield's brother, Wm. Frazier, came here a few months preceding her arrival. Mr. Frazier also owned his homestead, which is near that of Mrs. Summerfield. Together they have seen all the changes and growth this country has undergone and we of the younger generation delight in hearing of their stories of pioneer days.

Grandma has been in feeble health for a number of years, so she seldom goes out. Her friends remembered her birthday with a shower of postcards, which she highly appreciated. Her two children, Charles Summerfield, deputy sheriff, and Mrs. J.A. Suderth, wife of the assistant postmaster, are well and favorably known in Moscow.
