PHILOLOGUS ELY. This venerable pioneer was born in East Tennessee in 1825, and remained in his native state until 1834. In that year his father moved to Dewitt County, Illinois, and continued his occupation as a farmer through life. In the electric atmosphere of this young giant state of the West, Mr. Ely attained his majority, and in the meantime secured a practical education in the common schools. As a resource for his livelihood, he learned the trade of a plasterer which combined with his occupation of farmer, he followed in Dewitt and Knox counties. In the year 1851 , he was married to Miss Amanda Mansfield, making their home in Knox County till March, 1853, when they started across the plains, and after a severe journey reached Oregon in the September following, locating near Junction, in Lane County.

In December, 1861 the floods of the Willamette river destroyed most of the property which they had accumulated in the past. In this beautiful valley they made their home until the autumn of 1874, when they removed to Umatilla County. At that time Mr. Ely became afflicted with the rheumatism, and remained an invalid for the next ten years, one year of which he was unable to walk, and will re≠main a cripple during life. Here he still resides on a good farm with his aged wife, the mother of six children.

Mr. Richardson wrote the following letter to the editor of Pacific Christian Messenger, published at Monmouth:

Weston, OR. Aug. 5, 1877

D. T. Stanley,

Dear Bro.: I improve this opportunity of writing a word to let the readers of our valuable paper, the P. C. Messenger, know how the cause of Christ is prospering in this part of the country.

Since Bro. C. M. Ely's last report there have been four additions by relation, two reclaimed and one by baptism.

Dr. I. N. Richardson

This (Wild Horse) congregation numbers 52 members in good standing. It was fully organized in 1875.

The elders are J. R. Gerking, P. Ely and E. Moser; deacons, A. Russel and J. B. Gerking.

These statements are given in part to correct the report of No. 19 of the Messenger.

Gone To Rest

The death of Philologus Ely, one of this communityís oldest and most respected citizens, occurred Friday evening, January 6, caused by consumption.

Philologus Ely was born in Tennessee, August 19, 1826 being at his death, 66 years, 4 months and 18 days old. At the age of 8 years he, with his parents, removed to DeWitt county, Illinois, where he grew up to manhood. He removed from that county to Knox county shortly after he was of age, where he was married to Miss Amanda Mansfield, January 23, 1851, who was his faithful companion until his death. In 1853 he, with his wife, crossed the plains to Oregon and located in Linn county where they resided for 21 years. They then came to Umatilla county, purchased the farm near Athena where they have ever since resided.

Mr. Ely was a devoted member of the Christian Church for over 30 years, and in 1875 was ordained Elder of the Church at this place, which position he occupied until his death.

He has been in feeble health for a number of years. About two months ago, he began to fail rapidly, finally being stricken with quick consumption. He leaves to survive him a devoted wife, three sons and two daughters. One daughter has preceded him over the river.

One so well known in the county needs no eulogy of his virtues. He was a good Christian, a kind, indulgent husband and father and a good neighbor; a man firm in his convictions and peculiar in his simple ways and manner.

The funeral was conducted from the Ely residence to the Kees cemetery, followed by a large concourse of friends, among them many old pioneers of this section, some fifty or more carriages being in line, to his last resting place.

Our father is at rest

In the home of the blest,

We would not have him remain

To live in sorrow and in pain.

We weep not as some do;

We believe Godís word is true.

That again we shall meet.

Both to know and to greet. - by C.M.E. (Charles M. Ely)

Notes for AMANDA MANSFIELD:

Obituary of Amanda Mansfield Ely, from Athena Press, Athena, Umatilla County, Oregon, 3 February 1905

MOTHER IN HEAVEN.

BY HER CHILDREN.

Our dear mother, Mrs. Amanda Ely, departed from us in Seattle, Wash., January 27, 1905, at the age of 80 years, eight months and 16 days.

She was a devoted mother-our best earthly friend-and a faithful Christian; a member of the Christian church at Athena, Oregon, her home for many years, and where we have buried her body by the side of the graves of our dear father, P. Ely, and our sweet spirited sister, Lizzie Ely. The grave of our dear brother, J. F. Ely, is at San Bernardino, California.

The loving and faithful soul, or spirit, our real mother, has gone into the great beyond where all are going, and from whence none has ever returned. She has left four children and three brothers. Two sons, C. M. and G. W. Ely, and one daughter, M. A. Bamford, are residents of Seattle, Wash., and one daughter, Mrs. R. L. Price, resides near Farmington, Wash. Two brothers, F. M. and B. F. Mansfield, reside at Athena, Ore., and one brother, T. J. Mansfield, resides in Illinois.

Mother has been an invalid for over ten years. A very patient sufferer; never known once to complain or find fault.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their (her) eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying; neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away." (Rev. 21:4.) "Rejoice ever-more." (1st Thess. 5:16.)

No word that we can say or write, or even our thoughts, can express the full meaning of the word mother. Therefore we will only add what our dear sister said of "Heaven;" and let us all think of "Mother in Heaven!"

Notes for JAMES FRANKLIN ELY:

Obituary of James Franklin Ely. Inland Republican, Athena, Oregon. Saturday, Feb. 10, 1894.

FROM H.H. ABRAMS.

San Bernardino, Cal., Jany, 24.

To the friends of C.M. Ely: - It is well known to you that *J.F. Ely left Athena some months ago and came to San Bernardino, Cali., in the quest of health.

He reached here in good spirits, but it was quite apparent to the doctors that his chances for recovery were few.

On his arrival, he came at once to the fellowship of the Christian Church, and we soon learned to love him as a brother in Christ. He met with us but a few times around the Lordís table; and as he grew weaker, frequently expressed regret that he was not able to attend.

He sank so gradually that he did not recognize his own failing strength. A few hours before he died he said: "I might live yet." He frequently spoke of death and dying. Time and again, I heard him say: " I would like to live, and yet I do not know as I will ever be better prepared to die than I am now." He was a firm and staunch believer in Christ.

Ten hours before his death, I sat by his bedside and said to him: "My dear brother, you havenít got much farther to go." "Well," said he, "I have only one regret, and that one is, that I did not speak more plainly to my neighbor, J. Dudley, about Christ, and his salvation; thatís all, thatís all."

Like our master, did our brother die, with a prayer on his lips for others.

It makes us sad to think that Bro. Ely is gone, and yet, we rejoice that he is at rest.

A few days after the burial of the father, we were called upon to bury his son, Walter, in baptism. Thus, as one spirit life went, another came.

Our loving sympathy is now with the widow and children.

H.H. Abrams, Pastor of the Christian Church, San Bernardino, Cali.
