      • Mrs. Caroline Buell Gaston, aged 84, widow of the late Captain A. D. Gaston of Washington, D.C., and a daughter of the late Elijah Buell, founder of Lyons, passed away suddenly Wednesday evening at six o'clock in Los Angeles, Calif., where she had been since last fall. The message was received this morning by her brother, Langworthy J. Buell, 2517 Third street, north. Following the funeral services in Los Angeles, Calif., the body will be taken to Washington, D.C., where interment will be beside her husband in the Arlington National cemetery. Her daughter, Mrs. Mary Caroline Buell was the daughter of Elijah Buell and Mary Louise Pearce, who was the second wife of Mr. Buell and was born in Lyons March 16, 1843, in the pioneer days when the Buell homestead was located at the east end of Pearl street near the river the property now the site of the Charles M. Pelton home. January 21, 1864, she was
        united in marrage with A.D. Gaston by the Rev. Mr. Stanley, pastor of the Presbyterian church. Four children were born to this union, a daughter, Mrs. Bell James, passed away several years ago. Mr. Gaston preceded his wife in death a number of years ago. Of her immediate family she is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Jessie Harrison of New York City and Mrs. Mary King of Philadelphia, Pa., and one son, Buell Gaston of Los Angeles, Calif., four grandchildren and one great-grandchild. There is also a sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Spencer of Seattle, Wash. Elijah Buell, father of Mrs. Gason, was born in Utica, N.Y., April 1, 1801, and in 1811 he accompanied his parents from Utica to Sacketts Harbor, N.Y. In 1813 the grandfather died, and Elijah accompanied by his widow with her eight children to the site of the present location of Cleveland, Ohio. Elijah Buell completed his education in that city and turned his attention to the south end of the Mississippi. He became well
        known in navigation circles in that section of the country. He possessed remarkable ability and was a man of keen discernment so that during his long service there was no serious disaster under his command. While working as a pilot he made St. Louis, Mo., his home and in 1835 he left his family in that city and came to the site of the present city of Lyons, where he developed a farm and erected a small cabin on the Mississippi at what is now Pearl and Front streets.
