Subject: [CA-HISTORY] Death Notice from the Oct 1909 Grizzly Bear/Crain, Margaret Mrs.
Date: Thu, 15 May 2003 16:09:43 -0700 (PDT)
Just so every one knows, these are the list, that I am sending all these messages to, plus the county lists where the person lived and/or died. So if you are getting it more than one time, on the same list, I am not doing it. Also I looked at the first listed that they did in June of 1907, and these people were not members, but were pioneers, that they were honoring, on their death.

In doing a look-up I was checking the Oct 1909, Grizzly Bear, which was the Official organ of the Native Sons of the Golden West, and the Native Daughters of the Golden West, and each month they would listed the members who had died recently:
Mrs. Margaret Crain, who came with her parents to San Bernardino county in 1852, died recently at Redlands. In Salt Lake City she was wedded to her late husband, and the couple undertook and accomplished one of the most dangerous journeys ever attempted in the early days of the Wester country, they having been the first persons to make the trip persons to make the trip by wagon or any other way from Salt Lake to the coast of California. Arriving here they at San Bernardino, but later they went north again to Walhalla, Utah. There Mr. Crain took sick and died, and Mrs. Crain, with her small children, again made the perilous journey to San Bernardino. in a wagon, and accompanied only by a driver. She has since lived in the valley, recently taking up her home in Redlands.. Mrs. Crain was a native of of Ohio, aged 77 years, and is survived by four children.
