Woman Whose First Home Here Was Tent Under Jefferson Square Oaks Dies Suddenly at Hospital

Nellie grace Colwell Horn, wife of Martin Horn, West Kelso, died suddenly Tuesday at the Kelso hospital.

The funeral services will be held at the Kelso Christian Church, Third and Pine streets, at 11 o’clock Thursday morning. Rev. F.

Mrs. Horn with her sunny disposition was loved by all who knew her. She leaves a host of loving friends in her church and fraternal circles, where she was an untiring and faithful worker. The community grieves today the loss of so good a friend and Christian neighbor.

The Thomas Horn, Martin's son, whose obituary is elsewhere on this website, supposedly visited his Uncle Tom while the latter was in jail in Cheyenne. Newspaper reports are fragmentary; there is no documentation, for example, jail visitation records.

Correction to my last post: It was Martin who apparently visited his brother, Tom, while in jail in Cheyenne.

Martin's son, Tom, is the gentleman who died in the 1990s in Idaho.
