Timothy James Ward, of Glenwood, Klickitat county, Washington, who
died recently and was buried in the local cemetery there Tuesday, august 13th,
was born January 17, 1881, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Ward, old
settlers in the Blockhouse section near Goldendale. His early life was that of
the immediate descendants of those who brought the wilderness under the plow of
civilization -- hard, it is true, according to the modern standards, yet good to
develop stamina, industry and sterling virtues that come through trial. That he
loved this life is proven by the election to follow it -- for him the city had
no appeal. From boyhood he learned through his father and others the intricate
way of handling sheep successfully and after striking out for himself he
continued this line of activity. In those early days when the range was free he
knew the choice spots in the Simcoes and Mt. Adams country where summer grazing
was at its best and was known for his skill and fidelity in caring for the
defenseless bands entrusted to his care. When his discerning eye noted the
approach of the long sessions of storms and cold and deep snows he safely guided
his flocks to the balmy winter grazing sections along the Columbia southeast of
In November, 1912, he was united in marriage to Rosa Kuhnhausen, daughter of Herman Kuhnhausen, of Glenwood, likewise of pioneer stock. To this union one son was born, Frank E. Thereafter he resided in the Glenwood country. As this region was not so well adapted the year round for raising sheep he gradually entered the cattle business. Always a hardy constitution and accustomed to intense activity he could not realize that any task was too difficult, and so when stricken with pneumonia he refused to give up until it was too late. Under the best medical skill and the loving care of his wife day and night it seemed at one time that his indomitable will would bring him through, but it was not to be, the inroads of the dread disease having undermined his inherent strength.
That he was a good citizen is evidence by the fact that anything progressive always had his cooperation, whether it was the raising of better stock, promotion of irrigation in the Hell Roaring project, the welfare of the schools, of which he was a director -- in fact anything for the benefit of the community or individuals. Of sterling honesty, devoted to family, relatives and friends, he leaves behind him a host who deeply regret his passing. It is lamentable that men do needed are taken while yet in their prime. What a consolation in a time such as this to turn to Faith, which assures us that this life does not end at all, but that happiness unalloyed, the reunion of souls deeply attached in this life, is the reward of those who are true unto the end.
Besides a wife and son, and parents, he is survived by his brothers: Peter, of the Yakima Valley, Michael and Joseph, of Blockhouse.
