Oregon Pioneer and wife of George Abernethy, first and last provisional Governor of Oregon.

Obituary, sent to me by member Christopher Mentrum

A dispatch from Colonel Hodges of New York city to Mr. Lloyd Brooke of Portland, states that Mrs. Ann Abernethy, widow of the late Governor Abernethy, the first Governor of Oregon territory, died at the former's residence on Friday. The deceased was married to Governor Abernethy in New York state some time before the year 1840, when they came to this country via Cape Horn. Her maiden name was Pope, and she wa a sister of Thomas Pope, an old time merchant of Oregon City. For a long time she and her husband lived at Green Point, on the Willamette river just below Oregon City, where he was engaged for years in the mercantile business. In 1865 they moved to this city where they lived at the time of the governor's death, a few years ago. Of their children, William Abernethy, now lives out on the mecadam road, near the city, and another, Anna, is the wife of Colonel Hodges, at whose residence the old lady died. (The Oregonian, 04 May 1884, p. 5, c. 3)
