Lewisville: Laura Etta Baldwin was born in Ellsworth county, Kansas, June 10, 1878. She came to Oregon with her parents when but nine years of age. She departed this life September 23, 1907, at 8 o’clock pm. She was married to Dorsa N. Turner, November 24, 1907 [sic; 1897]. To this union were born three children, all of whom are left to mourn the loss of a loving mother. She joined the Methodist church at the age of 10 years, and remained a faithful member to the end. She was a sufferer for years but was patient and uncomplaining, often repeating the words: “The Master’s will be done; I am ready.” Her friends were all who knew her, and none will be missed more than Laura. Her funeral was conducted by the Rev Gibbs of Corvallis. Polk County Observer, Friday, September 27, 1907, 1:5
