      CHARITY J. LUPER. Both as daughter and
      wife, Mrs. Charity J. Luper, a worthy member of
      the society of Tangent, Linn county. Ore., has
      experienced the trials of pioneer life, having
      crossed the plains in 1852 with her parents, and
      a few years later married John Luper, another of
      the sturdy and reliable citizens of the new territory.
      Mrs. Luper was in maidenhood Charity
      J. Fanning, born in Morgan county. Ill., November
      30, 1840, her parents being Levi and Nancy
      (James) Fanning. The birth of her father occurred
      in Virginia, February 8, 1810, and that
      of her mother in Kentucky, November 18, 1806,
      their marriage following in Illinois, whither they
      had removed. In Morgan county they made their
      home until the spring of 1852, April 1 of that
      year finding them upon the plains with two
      wagons and eight yoke of oxen to each, bound
      for the broad lands of Oregon. While on the
      journey the mother died on Snake river, August
      2, 1852, leaving one son and two daughters. The
      family continued their way into the west, where
      the father took up a donation claim of three hundred
      and twenty acres located three miles southeast
      of Tangent, remaining there for many years.
      A few years previous to his death, which took
      place June 3, 1888, he removed to a farm three quarters
      of a mile south of Albany and engaged
      in farming. In August, 1853, he had married
      Jane Gilliland, who is also now deceased.
      Of her father's family Mrs. Luper was next
      to the youngest in age, and the principal part
      of her life has been passed among the scenes
      of Oregon. She was married April 23, 1857,
      near Tangent, to John Luper, who was born
      in Crawford county. Pa., November 10, 1824.
      He crossed the plains in 1853 and took up a donation
      claim one mile northeast of Tangent,
      where he engaged in farming for nearly forty
      years, after which he removed to Tangent and
      (lied there March 29, 1902. His widow, now a
      resident of Tangent, has a life lease on the farm
      of two hundred and twenty acres, and also owns
      fourty-one lots in this city. Of the children born
      to them. Commodore P, is deceased ; Ella Flor-
      ence is the wife of John McFarland, located
      near Albany ; and Lola Charity is the wife of J. E.
      Ownbey, located two and a half miles southeast
      of Tangent. Another member of the family is
      Loren B. Luper, an adopted son, who now lives
      on the old homestead. Mr. Luper was a stanch
      supporter of the Prohibition principles in the
      west, and fraternally was a member of the
      Grange. He was a liberal supporter, member
      and class leader of the Methodist Episcopal
      Church, of which Mrs. Luper and her family
      are members.
