Heath, Andrew (09 DEC 1833 – 10 MAR 1914)

The silent messenger of Death sought out and summoned from earth on March 10, 1914, at Fossil, Ore. Andrew Heath.

Mr. Heath was born in Stockholm, St. Lawrence County, N.Y., Dec. 9, 1833 and was married in Parishville, N.Y. to Miss Pauline Kennedy in 1863.  In 1870 they came to Clark County and he made a homestead entry of 120 acres of land here in the town of Fremont the following year when he took immediate possession and continued to live there until last fall when after the celebration of their golden wedding anniversary they move to Fossil, Ore. to be near their youngest daughter Alice, Mrs. O.L. Ralston.

He is survived by his wife, their three daughters and by five grandchildren namely: Their daughter Effie, Mrs. Davis of Abbottsford and her children, Amy and Laverne, their daughter Essie, Mrs. Sherman Davis of Heathville and her children, Wellie and Elton, and their daughter Alice, Mrs. O.L. Ralston and her daughter Vera.

His life long career marked him as a man of well known honesty and integrity.  He was elected town clerk of the town of Fremont here year after year and the community in which he lived was named Heathville in his honor.  To him the whole human race was one great family joined together in the ties of common brotherhood.  The burial took place at Fossil, Oregon.  Interment being made in the I.O.O.F. cemetery there and under the auspices of that fraternal society, of which deceased was an old and honored member.

The sympathy of their many friends here goes out to the bereaved widow in this sad hour.
