Maggie Croner Headstone – Eugene Masonic Cemetery 1/1/13


Last Friday morning at 5 o’clock Miss Maggie Croner died at the family residence on twelfth and Oak streets, in this city.  She had been ill for some time but was not thought to be seriously failing and her death was therefore unexpected and grievous. 

Maggie Croner, was born in Eugene Oregon May 13, 1872 and was therefore aged 26 years, 11 months and 23 days. 

She has resided in this city all her life and through the period of girlhood and womanhood, was one of the popular young persons of the city.  Her frank cordial manner won and held the warmest friendship.  Besides her parents she leaves one sister, Miss Fannie and two brothers Geo. F. Croner and C. F. Croner.  The funeral service was conducted Sunday at the residence by Rev. Rose and the body was carried to the Masonic Cemetery.”  Oregon State Journal, Eugene, OR May 13, 1899, pg. 5, col. 2.  University of Oregon Knight library.

It appears most of the Croner family are buried at the Eugene Masonic Cemetery.  The 1880 Eugene, Lane Co. Census gives her birthdate as 1870, cemetery and obituary records gives her birth as 1873.
