Mrs. Martha Tate Phillips, widow of the late Daniel T. Phillips, died in her home on First Street, Hillsboro, Nov. 1, 1913, after an illness extending over several months. Mrs. Phillips was widely acquainted all over Washington County. She was born in Tennessee, in Dec. 24, 1827. Moving to Illinois, she was married to Mr. Phillips, April 17, 1845. In 1856 they started for Oregon, going across the continent at Panama, and from there coming to Oregon in a vessel. The arrived here in January, 1857, and settled near Greenville, at the forks of Dairy Creek. In 1863 they moved to Cornelius, where Mr. Phillips bought a farm, and started making brick. The Phillips home was known far and wide for its genuine hospitality. Mr. Phillips died June 14, 1906. Several years ago Mrs. Phillips and her son, F.

The funeral took place Sunday afternoon, with services at the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, where she was laid to rest by the side of her husband. Mrs. Phillips was unibersally beloved by all her friends, and her strength of character and helpfulness to all in times of illness endeared her to all with whom she came in contact. She was a dutiful wife and a loving mother, and no woman in the county was ever more highly esteemed.
