"Makeshift memorial arises for two who died after being hit by SUV--S.......tudents and staffers at Winema High School on Friday remembered two classmates who were struck and killed along Lancaster Drive and prayed for a third who remained in critical condition Friday at Salem Hospital. The crash occurred shortly after school Thursday when a sport utility vehicle jumped the curb and struck the students near Lancaster Drive and Winema Place NE. Brittney Green, 18, and Francisco Cervantes, 16, died of their injuries. Jorge Echeverria, 18, was in critical condition Friday at Salem Hospital, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office. Friends and family placed roses, teddy bears and candles at a makeshift memorial near the scene that read: We love you! Francisco, Jorge and Brittney.
The three students were new to the school — Francisco came from North Salem High School, Jorge from McKay High School and Brittney from Estacada, but already they were a part of the tight-knit community of 150 students. "I had a class with Francisco," said classmate Briana Davidson. "He was funny. When he did talk, people would laugh. You knew he had a lot to say........." [Statesman Journal, Sept 25, 2010]
"Friends remember victims of traffic crash at candlelight vigil--..........Hundreds reportedly visited during the day, and by dusk about 300 had gathered in a parking lot nearby for a candlelight vigil.
Among them were several current or former members of the Woodburn King Kobraz, a soccer team that Francisco played on.
“When we spent the night (at a teammate’s) house, we would wrestle,” said a smiling Chris Musser, now a junior at North Salem High School and whose father coached the team.
Chris’s mom, Selma Musser, recalled Francisco as “good kid” and a competitor with a strong foot.
“Everybody knew it when he kicked the ball,” she said.
The crash occurred about 2:30 p.m. Thursday. The three students, who attended the high school, were crossing Winema Place when they were struck by a 1994 Chevrolet Blazer, which also hit a utility box and another car........." [Statesman Journal, Sept 25, 2010]

`I am the resurrection and the life'
wife of William Cornell
"Cornell-Emily B. Cornell was born in Crittenden county, Vermont, August 11, 1820, and when but nine years of age moved with her parents to Ohio. In 1838 she was united in marriage to William Cornell, who is now made to feel, in his old age, the loss of an helpmeet who for nearly fifty years bravely stood by him through a two-fold pioneer life. In 1854 she removed to Oregon, coming by way of the Isthmus; her husband having crossed the plains two years previously. She was converted and united with the Baptist Church at the early age of fourteen years, but subsequently united with the M.E. Church, remaining a faithful member until death set her free. About two years ago consumption took hold upon her and it became evident to her friends that her days were nearly numbered. A few days previous to her death, feeling a little better, she decided to visit her children, some of whom lived in Portland. It was thought that possibly the change would prove beneficial to her health, but such hopes were vain, for, while visiting at the residence of her youngest son, H.A. Cornell, death claimed her. When told by the physician in attendance that the hour had come, she expressed no alarm, no words of regret, but with fortitude, begotten of faith, said: "It is the Lord, and let him do what seemeth him good." A short time prior to her death, she repeated to her daughter these lines: `When all thy mercies, O my God, My rising soul surveys, Transported with the view, I'm lost In wonder, love and praise'. She died in great peace April 10th and was interred in Lee cemetery, where so many of God's heroes lie awaiting the resurrection morn. Her bereaved husband and six children have the sympathies of a large number of Christian friends." PCA May 10, 1888

"Alfred Cowan Dies By His Own Hand At Camp Near Here--Refusal of Wife to Live With Him Causes Suicide--Pistol Shot Arouses Brother and Friend From Bed Soon After Reaching Minto Farm Early Last Night--Officials Make Inquiry--Refusal of his wife to live with him caused Alfred Cowan, 23 years old, to take his own life by shooting himself in the heart with a .32 calibre automatic pistol about 8:30 o'clock last night at a camping place on the Frank Minto farm five miles south of Salem.
Cowan's widow, Mrs. Beatrice Cowan, is now at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Shell Hayes, at Trail, Ore., near Medford. He is also survived by an infant daughter, June, 2 years old, and by his mother, Mrs. Minnie Cowan, of San Francisco.
Cowan was traveling through the state by automobile with his brother, Ira Cowan, 17, and with Thomas Martin, a friend. They recently left Sloat, Calif., according to Martin's story, told last night to District Attorney John H. Carson and Sheriff O.D. Bower. They reached Medford Sunday, and Cowan drove to the Hayes place to see his wife, hoping for a reconciliation. When he returned, however, he told his brother and Mr. Martin that he had been unsuccessful. He appeared to brood over his trouble Sunday, but yesterday, Martin said, was more cheerful. However, he had threatened to kill himself. The three men reached the Minto camp about 8 o'clock last night. Ira Cowan and Martin had gone to bed, while Alfred Cowan busied himself about the car. Suddenly the two former were aroused by a shot. Apparently, Cowan died almost instantly, but he was rushed to a hospital in Salem in an automobile driven by Mrs. Frank Minto.
Besides his immediate relatives, Cowan is said to have an aunt at Corvallis. He was born at Bandon, Ore. He was a laborer." OS Jun 26, 1923 1:2-3
