PAC 24 Sep 1874 - notes - b. Monroe Co., Tenn., daughter of Rev. James Witten, came to Missouri in 1848 and to Oregon in 1868.
Thrphosa Javens, the subject of this memoir, was born in Monroe county, Tennessee, May 10, 1837, and having the advantages of an early religious training, embraced the Savior and joined the M. E. Church at about the age of eight years, and honored God by a pious walk while in the morning of life. In 1848 her parents emigrated to the State of Missouri. Her father Rev. James Witten, who had been a pioneer Methodist preacher in the Tennessee and Holston conferences, after arriving in Missouri took up the labors of an itinerant in the Missouri conference and in 1851 was appointed to the Wyandott and Delaware mission. Here, while in her fourteenth year, Tryphosa, the subject of this sketch, was bereaved of her pious mother, whose dust sleeps in the burying ground of the Wyandott Indians, but whose Christian influence lived in the life of her daughter. The deceased was married to Mr. H. Javens in the State of Kansas in the year 1860, where they remained until 1866, when they crossed the plains to California, and thence to Oregon in 1868 and settled in Saouth Salem, where, notwithstanding her very feeble health, she was a devoted Christian and faithful laborer in the Sunday school, in which she took such deep interest that she was regular in her attendance when justice to her declining health would have excused her absence.
  But for a few months past she was compelled for want of physical strength, to give up her attendance at the house of God; but found Jesus precious in her hours of lingering affliction; and especially for a few hours before her departure, she was in ecstatic joy anticipating her early reunion with loved ones gone before. About 5 o'clock p.m. of Sept. 9, 1874, she fell asleep in Jesus, leaving a beloved husband, one son and three little daughters, on the "Weeping shore to shich she will return no more."  P. M.
