NEWTON PHILLIPS 1852-1904
”The death of Mr. N. Phillips, which occurred last Friday was unusually sad on account of the attending circumstances. Mr. Phillips had but recently arrived from Michigan and purchased the stock of goods owned by the estate of G. W. Grace with the intention of conducting a general Merchandising business. On Monday of last week he suddenly became seriously ill while working in the store and was taken to the hospital on Thursday where he died on the following day.
The funeral was conducted under the auspices of the Masonic Lodge from Finley undertaking parlors. A telegram from the Chapter of Eastern Star to which Mrs. Phillips belonged in Michigan expressing sympathy for the bereaved family was read during the services. The remains were laid to rest in Lone Fir Cemetery, Portland. Mr. Phillips had been in Oregon City but a few days, yet he had already made a host of friends by his kindly manner and gentlemanly bearings. The family has the heartfelt sympathy of all.”
