"Death of Wm. Lansing--A telegram received in Salem Friday July 12, from Ogden, Utah, brought to his mother, sisters, and many friends, the sad news of the death of Will Lansing, formerly of this city. The first news of his illness was received by telegraph July 3, and his father, Wm. Lansing, left on the morning of the 4th and was at his son's bedside when death came.
William Jerome Lansing was born in Fredonia, Kansas, February 14, 1874, and died in Ogden, Utah, July 11, 1901, aged 27 years and four months.
Typhoid fever was the cause.
When about one year old, he moved with his parents to Atlantic, Iowa, where he lived until February, 1899, when he came to Salem, and has since made his home here.
He went to Ogden five weeks ago to accompany his uncle, A.E. Lansing, of Ogden, to Deeth, Nevada, where they were to work on a contract. Shortly after arriving in Deeth he was taken ill, and as there were no doctors there he went back to Ogden to his uncle's home but soon became so bad that he was removed to the hospital where he died.
Deceased was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Lansing, of Salem, and leaves beside his parents, seven sisters to mourn his loss, and a multitude of sympathizing friends.
His sisters are: Mrs. Fred Wilson, of Atlantic, Iowa, Mrs. Frank Wilson, of Seattle, Washington, Mrs. Otis Riggs, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the Misses Clara, Grace, Edna and Ethel of Salem.
The remains arrived in Salem, Sunday and the funeral was held at the family residence, corner 17th and D streets Monday morning, July 15 at 10 o'clock. The A.O.U.W. of which the deceased was a highly respected member, had charge of the funeral.
The sermon at the house was preached by Rev. Wm. Manning of the First Christian church of this city, and the Order conducted the services at the grave in a very impressive manner. Interment was at Lee Mission cemetery.
The floral tributes were many and beautiful. The sympathy of their many friends goes out to the afflicted ones in their sad bereavement." CJ Jul 17, 1901 4:3

LEE, Anna Maria Pittman
d. 26 Jun 1838 DS-06
Beneath this sod, the first ever broken in Oregon for the reception of a white mother and child, lie the remains of Anna Maria Pittman, first wife of Rev. Jason Lee and her infant son. She sailed from New York in July 1836, landed in Oregon June 1837, was married July 16th, 1837 and died June 26, 1838, age 35 years. In the full enjoyment of the love which constraineth her to leave all for Christ and heathen souls.
Lo we have left all and followed thee, what should we have therefore. Mat. XIX 27.
"Mrs. Anna Pitman Lee--The Sunday Statesman of December 27, 1903, contains a very interesting editorial under the heading of `Rev. Jason Lee,' and closes with the wording on the marble slab now over the remains of the first white mother and child interred in the soil of Oregon, as if the writer believes that Lee cemetery first received the remains of that most pathetic life in the missionary history of Oregon.
The writer of this became claimant of the original M.E. mission site at Wilamet in August, 1845, by purchase from David Carter, one of the assist-ant missionaries, who purchased it of Rev. George Geary, agent of the board of missions, in 1844.
The bodies of Mrs. Lee and babe then lay in the shade of a small fir grove, within easy rifle shot of the entrance to the main mission building. All fencing around the buildings, the garden and the graves, had been swept away by the high flood of December 1844, and as the marks of high water were from 4 to 6 inches upon the window casing, it must have swept from 6 to 10 feet deep over the graves of those interred, as it was lower ground than the building; but the head and foot boards on the graves had not been lifted, and many a time between my cleaning the house for occupancy, in September, and vacating it to a new owner in February, 1846, I read the wording on the head board over Mrs. Lee, according to memory thus: `Lord, we have left all and followed Thee; What shall we have therefor?'
It was in the early `50s, I saw and read the same head board over what must have been temporary graves, near ordinary high water mark, in Mill street, Salem, near the east end of the present board walk to the O.R. & N. wharf. The bodies must have been brought there by steamer, but by whom removed to Lee cemetery, where I next read the question, I am not informed. The fact that the cemetery is on the D.L. claim of the late J.L. Parrish gives reason to believe that he gave the ground and very likely the name to Lee cemetery. John Minto.

Lewis peacefully passed away. Mr. Lewis had been a sufferer from inflamatory rheumatism for over eight years, and during the last three years had been unable to walk even upon crutches. Added to this, deceased was thrice stricken with paralysis. During this time his devoted wife and loving children spared no pains to make smooth the rough journey over which destiny had dictated that he should pass.
Mr. Lewis was born in Wood county, West Virginia, in that section known as `Washington's Bottom', January 8th, 1832. Seven years afterward, just across the Ohio river, or in the midst of it, on the historical `Blanner-basset Island,' his future wife, Mary Ann Harwood, was born, their acquaintance dating almost from this event. They were married May 28th, 1856, and lived upon this famous plantation for a number of years.
