Born in Shelby, Indiana.
          KELSO, Wash., Feb. 1. -- (Special)
--- Mrs. Eunice Winsor  died at Shelton, Wash., January 27.  She was one of the few remaining women pioneers of Washington and almost the last of the original pioneer Huntington family.  Mrs. Winsor was 85 years old and was born in Shelby county, Indiana, April 3, 1835.
          When Mrs. Winsor was 12 years of age the family crossed the plains.  They reached the Dalles in September, 1848, and continued on their way to Vancouver.  In the fall they located near Castle Rock on the Cowlitz river.
          In 1852 she was married to Captain Henry Winsor, who operated a boat on the Cowlitz river.  In 1860 the family moved to Pierce county.  Edward Huntington, a brother, who lives at Castle Rock, survives, as do four half brothers, a son and a daughter.
