Stokes, Albert Frederick

Oregon City Courier, April 11, 1918
Funeral services over the remains of A. F. Stokes, who died at his Canemah home last Saturday, were held Tuesday afternoon at the Elk’s temple. Mr. Stokes was a member of the Elks, and of the Meade Post, G. A. R. The members of the post and Ladies Relief Corps attended the service in a body – the latter organization having charge of the ceremony at the cemetery.
Mr. Stokes was a native of England, but had resided in this country from his infancy. He was a veteran of the Civil War, and had always taken an active interest in the affairs of the local post. It was after addressing his comrades here on patriotic topics that he was stricken with the apoplexy that caused his death. He had apparently been in good health up to the time of his affliction, but his 72 years of active life were more or less telling on him.
Two sons, William H. and Clyde Stokes, of this city, and a daughter, Mrs. Neita Von Klein, of Portland, survive. His wife has been dead for nearly twenty years. The family is well known here, having resided at Canemah for the past 40 years.

R. of which he was a member and past commander. At the meeting he made a stirring patriotic address on the observation of Memorial Day, when the program was outlined by the old soldiers.
Mr. Stokes has been in business in Canemah for many years. He is survived by a son, William B. Stokes and a daughter. His wife died some time ago.
