Mr. Sutton and family started for Oregon, March 21, 1854, and
Mrs. Sutton died Sept. 15, 1854, before reaching their destination,
and was buried about seven miles from the Dalles, near Columbia
river. Her son Franklin says, '' The death of our mother and the
loss of nearly all our property in crossing the plains, made it neces-
sary for the children to scatter. We found homes in pleasant places,
and tho we had to rough it, and look out for ourselves, there was
enough work to be done, and good pay. Nowhere on earth can be
found a nobler, more generous or more intelligent people than the
big-brained and big-hearted pioneers of Oregon."
