Sarah Jane OWENBY
L. C. Oliver
Mrs. Rus Martin received the sad news of the death of her father L.C. Oliver, at North Powder, last Monday. Mr. Oliver is well known by all the old settlers of our community. He was one of the first settlers in Arko. He took the farm now owned by Al Nedrow as a homestead several years ago. He moved to southern Oregon, but made several visits back to his old home land. Mr. Oliver was 68 years old and had been a sufferer with the asthma for many years. Mrs. May's of Mud Creek is also a daughter.
Mr. Oliver had many friends in Arko who sympathise with the family in their loss.
