Mrs. Cynthia ALBRIGHT Dead -- This lady was born in Wayne County, Illinois, in 1821. She grew to womanhood and married John L. MANN, in that state, and in 1852, they, with a company of others, started with ox-teams, to cross the plains to Oregon.  They had a perilous and tiresome journey.  Indians were numerous and hostile and the caravan was in constant danger from raids. On the journey Mr. MANN took sick with choleras and died, leaving his widow to continue the journey with her companions.  Mrs. Mann settled in Oregon near this place and in 1863 she became the wife of Charles Albright.  Two children were born to this union.  Councilman Charles ALBRIGHT, of this city, and a daughter, Clara who is married and lives in California.  Charles ALBRIGHT Sr. died in 1888.  Mrs. ALBRIGHT was a woman of unusual strength of character and possessed many loveable characteristics.  She was the kind of woman the pioneer mothers of this country should have been, and many of them were.  She died in Portland last Saturday at the good old age of 76 years.  Her remains were brought to his city Monday and interred in the Mountain View Cemetery.  Her old time friends and neighbors acted as her pallbearers. Director of the funeral was R. L. Holman.

William MANN

 “Oregon Argus” Newspaper, June 21st, 1856, Vol. II, No. 10, P. 2, Col. 1.


"On last Lord's day morning William. MANN, a lad of about 19 years of age, fell into the river just below the Falls, on the Linn City side whilst engaged in fishing, and was of course drowned. On the day previous, the body of Mr. WHITTEN, who was drowned at the same place a week before was recovered.  Widow Mann, in the untimely death of her son has been deprived of her principal means of support, and we hope all our good citizens will contribute their mite towards relieving her wants.  We have but few poor among us, and the little we are called upon to contribute in this way will make us no poorer in this world or in that which is to come."
