      Mrs. Esther S. MCKENZIE was the daughter of Ambrose and Margaret BREIG. She was born in Salisbury, Pa., October 25, 1849; died at Tulsa, Oklahoma, April 26, 1911, aged 61 years, 7 months, and 1 day. About June 1, 1911 (sic), she went to spend a few months with her daughter, Mrs. Alice EICHORN, where her health began to fail and all that medical skill and loving and tender care of her children could do failed to save her life. She is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. J. STACER, Mrs. R. KEMP and P.P. BREIG, of Meyersdale, Mrs. Wilson HAWN of Salisbury, PA; Mrs. Ozias WEIMER of Greenville; A.J. BREIG of Berkley Springs, W.Va.; Mrs. V.J. HARLEY of Parnasas, Pa; Geo F. BREIG of Vandergrift, PA. In 1869 Esther S. BREIG was united in marriage with James A. MCKENZIE at Meyersdale, Pa., in SS Philip and James church by Rev. Patrick Brown.
      They resided here until the spring of 1874 when they sought a home in the west, living in Kansas and Arkansas. When the new territory of Oklahoma was thrown open for settlement she, with her husband and family were among the first settlers and endured the many privations and hardships of the new country, but their courage and zeal were crowned with success and they became the owners of a beautiful farm, where they lived in happiness and contentment until the death of the husband five years ago. Since that time, Mrs. McKenzie spent most of her time among her children. Three of her children died in infancy. Those surviving were Mrs. Laura KIMERLY, of Kingsville, Texas; Mrs. Alice EICHORN of Tulsa, Oklahoma; Clinton, of Texas; James, of Oregon; Clarence of Black Hills, S.D.; Vincent, Lloyd, and Samuel, of O'Kean, Oklahoma.
      She was a faithful, devoted wife and mother, a kind and true friend and neighbor, always ready to minister to those in sickness and distress. She was a faithful and consistent member of the Catholic church, fortified with the sacraments of her holy faith, patient in her suffering and resigned in the will of God, she died with a hope of a blessed immortality. Funeral services were conducted by her pastor. Her body was laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery in Keith, Oklahoma, beside her husband. May her soul rest in peace.
