Yes, I've seen other obits in the papers for grange members, and they were
always written up very formally in that kind of language.
The Herald-Disseminator was a newspaper in Albany - the Weekly Herald
and you can see the University of Oregon holdings here:

Copies of the Oregon newspapers are available to read in the UO Knight
Library Microforms Section. These rolls of microfilm are also available on
Inter-Library Loan, and positive microfilm copies may be ordered of any
titles with the source
code "ONMP". For further infomation, contact the Microforms Section at
It looks like they have copies of the Herald Disseminator from Nov 5, 1886
to Sep 15, 1904. The Albany Public Library might also have these issues on
microfilm - you can call the reference desk at 541-917-7582.
