“Died – At the residence of her husband, three miles southwest of Junction City, March 12, 1904, Mrs. Wesley Haight, aged 56 years, 4 months and 15 days. Mrs. Haight’s maiden name was Miss Olive Wood and was born in New York. With her parents at the age of 12 moved to Michigan where she was married in 1868 to Mr. Haight. They moved to Dakota in 1881, then to Washington, where they resided two years. Later moved to California, where they resided five years. Six years ago, they moved to Oregon. She leaves a husband and four children. She had the reputation of being a most excellent woman and was always ready to minister to the sick and afflicted. Funeral services were held Sunday by Rev. D.L. Shrode of this city, and the remains were interred in the Odd Fellows cemetery.”
Mrs. Wesley Haight; The Junction City Times (OR), Mar 19, 1904 pg 5, col. 3.
I see no record on Find A Grave for her husband C. W. Haight at Rest Lawn Cemetery. Given the fact they moved around so much, perhaps he died out of the area. It certainly was a different era when she passed away. Never today would we see the opening line of an obituary stating “Died – at the residence of her husband!
