19 Obituary (file of Marlin Beulow)
Sarah Felix Perkins was born in Union County, Pennsylvania in December 1815. In early childhood, she moved to Ohio and then to Indiana. Here she met John Perkins to whom she was married on March 29, 1836.
On March 4, 1844 they started from Benton County, Indiana, by ox team, to Oregon, arriving at Whitman Mission (in Walla Walla, now a part of Washington State) the following November. They lived there until June 1845 and then moved to Willamette Valley and settled on their land claim which was about two miles to the northwest.
Theirs was a happy life for the next 42 years until death claimed the one who had shared her joy and sorrows. John was laid to rest on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Her father, the Reverend Henry Felix, was educated in Germany for the Presbyterian ministry. She was united with the church of her father's faith, remaining a consistent member until March 1864 when she united with the M.E. Church which she has been a devoted member ever since.
She was the mother of nine children, Eugene (Eli), Joseph B., George W., Norris H., Mrs. Elvira Russell, Mrs. Lucretia Walker, and Mrs. Lizzie Bedwell of this place are still living and were present at the funeral. The other two children, Mrs. Sarah M. Richards, died October 14, 1901 and William F. Perkins died May 18, 1890. The past six years, the deceased made her home with her daughter Mrs. Lizzie Bedwell at whose residence she died. She died on July 28, 1904 and was 88 years, 6 months, and 22 days old.
The funeral services were conducted by Reverend W.B. Moore, pastor of the 1st M.E. Church of which the deceased was a member for 40 years. The deceased was a pioneer and having lived in this part of the country for nearly 50 years, made many friends and acquaintances. A large concourse of people attended the funeral service both at the church and the grave.
Marlin Beulow notes: "The information contained in this obituary, referencing her father's first name and education/profession, was refuted by family members in later years. Sarah's death certificate does reflect her father's name as supposedly being "Henry." There are some discrepancies in dates and places between Sarah's and John's obituaries but nothing so noticeable that it cannot be overlooked."
