Clarkston, Aug. 6 - Mrs. P. P. Cleveland, for many years a resident of the Gifford section, died at the family home in Clarkston Monday evening from paralysis. She was stricken Saturday evening and did not regain consciousness.

Mrs. Cleveland was born in Monroe county, Tenn., and was 61 years, eight months and three days of age. She was united in marriage on Nov. 27, 1877, with P. P. Cleveland and ten children were the result of the union, nine of whom are living.

The family moved to the Gifford section when the reservation was opened to settlement and located on one of the choice agricultural tracts adjacent to Gifford. The family removed to Clarkston to reside last fall.

Mrs. Cleveland was a lady of fine attainments and enjoyed the highest regard of a wide circle of friends. The remains will be taken overland to Gifford and funeral services will be conducted at Gifford Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock.

Mrs. Cleveland is survived by her husband and nine children. Ira Cleveland and wife arrived yesterday from Wenatchee, Mrs. Bert Wahl is expected tomorrow from Seattle, Bruce Cleveland is in Montana and Larkin Cleveland is with the colors in France. The other children are: Benjamin and Fred Cleveland, the Misses Grace and Lona Cleveland and Mrs. Harry Stanford.
