"A Grievous Loss--I write you of the probable death by drowning of our greatly beloved brother, and father in our Israel, the Rev. Isaac Dillon, D.D. Brother James Frankland, county clerk of San Juan County, and for many years an influential man in Puget Sound Methodism, came to me yesterday bringing the sad news. Saturday morning, June 7th, he learned that a boat with the overcoat, umbrella, etc., of Dr. Dillon had been found afloat on the Sound, and he started out on a launch to investigate. He could get no trace of the Doctor, but learned that he left Port Stanley on the afternoon of Friday to go to Newhall, on Orcas Island. About 3 o'clock Saturday morning the boat was sighted and was soon recovered. Under all the circumstances we can but conclude that in some way we shall never know, the body of this eminent servant of God found a grave in the waters of Puget Sound, in the evening of June 6th, while his devout and pure spirit ascended to enter upon rest that remaineth for the people of God. In his pastoral, district, education-al, and editorial work he made a deep impression in his fifty years of residence on this Northwest Coast. We who were near him knew that he had been in failing health for some months.
In the early part of this Conference year he served Nooksack, but after an attack of grippe, from which he did not fully recover, he resigned his charge.
It was a benediction to know him, and his memory will be as ointment poured forth." PCA Jun 18, 1902 7:1

4th wife of Rev. I.D. Driver
"Mrs. Anna S. Driver--Consort of Rev. I.D. Driver, was born in Fulton, New York, April 21, 1839, and died of inflammation of the stomach, near Salem, Oregon, May 21, 1873. Her mother died while Anna was quite a girl. Her father was a Congregational preacher. Her early advantages were good, and she became possessed of a good education. She came to this State about seven years ago, and was engaged for some time in teaching in the public schools in Portland, after which she taught the colored school in that city for one year. After a stay of four years, she returned to Michigan, where two years ago she was united in marriage to her present bereaved husband.
When fifteen years old, she was converted and united with the Presbyterian Church, but after her arrival in Oregon she united by letter with the Methodist Evangelical Church. On her return to Michigan, she again connected herself with the Church of her early choice, but after her marriage she removed her membership to the Methodist Episcopal Church, where she remained until death.
Sister Driver was a systematic Christian. She had system in her temporal affairs, and she served her Maker systematically. In the Church she found much to do in visiting and instructing the destitute. With all the means of spiritual culture found in the Church, and with every depart-ment of Christian enterprise she was in full sympathy. What she did was done in the name of the Lord. She was a Christian. When death came she was ready to depart and be with Christ.
Her last illness was of more than twenty days duration, and her suffer-ings were intense, but she bore her affliction with Christian resignation. Christ Jesus was her grand theme. A little while before she died she said to them by her side, `Don't speak to me.' She seemed desirous of being alone with Jesus, and closing her hands she repeated His name, communing with Him amid the calm glory of the evening twilight. Calmly and serenely she passed away. Her last words were `All is well.'" PCA May 29, 1873

Mrs. Driver had accompanied her husband on a tour to Puget Sound, and in returning from Victoria by sea, the rough weather brought on sea-sickness so severe that it could not be con-troled; Gastritus supervened and in spite of the most careful attention and skill, she sunk into the arms of death, four days after reaching Port-land. She died in peace, and though the messenger came unexpectedly, under circumstances of deep affliction, she gave evidence of careful preparation. There is reason to believe our sister had been a praying person from child-hood, yet she did not make an open profession of religion until January of the present year. Thus at the age of 26, leaving a beloved husband, with a family of seven children to be cared for, and in the early stages of religious experience, at a distance from home is this sister called away. Everything that medical skill, careful attention, and Christian sympathy, could do to save her was promptly done. The body was taken to the parsonage of the Taylor St. Church, thence to her home at Salem, on Thursday, buried on Friday with funeral services in the M.E. Church on the following Sabbath."
