   Coventon, 88, were held at the McDonald Funeral Home at 1pm today with the Rev. Lloyd F Holloway officiating. Cremation followed.

   Mrs. Coventon, resident of Clallam County 70 years, died Thursday at Forks.

  

   She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Burns born at Birmingham, England, July 4, 1872. She came to Port Angeles with her parents early in

   1890. Her parents were members of the Puget Sound Cooperative Colony which settled at Ennis Creek here in 1887.

  

   The year of her arrival Edna Burns taught music at the newly established Old Central School that stood on the site of the present Washington

   School.

  

   In 1894 (?) she married Harry Coventon, a colony member. He had been a British sailor who came across the Strait of Juan de Fuca in a row boat in

   1883. He went from here to California and returned and joined the colony in 1887.

  

   The young couple first lived in Ennis Creek Valley. He became one of the operators in the city's first electrical plant. They later moved to 2nd St.

   between Laurel and Oak. Later they homesteaded in the Upper Elwah Valley where he developed a farm and did logging.

  

   Her husband became custodian of the Clallam County Court House and the family moved back to Port Angeles where the family home was at Chase

    and Liberty St. Mr. Coventon was custodian of the court house until his death in 1932.

  

   Although the mother of 9 children, Mrs. Coventon was active in community work. She was a member of the Port Angeles School Board 5 years

   previous to 1935. For her work on the school board she was awarded a life membership pin by the Clallam County PTA. Other activities included aid

    in establishing Camp David Junior at Lake Crescent and the Estelle Henson Memorial Fund for children. She was an early member of the Altruistic

   Club and the Delphian society. The Port Angeles Public Library has an Edna Coventon Memorial book shelf. She was a life member of the Dry

   Creek and Pomona Granges.

  

   Both Mrs. Coventon and her late parents were musicians who took part in many of the early day social activities over a period of many years.

  

   Surviving relatives include 2 sons, Harry Coventon, Port Angeles and William Coventon, Seattle; 6 daughters, Mrs. Kathleen Kauffman, Seattle; Mrs.

    Arthur Reynolds, Tacoma; Mrs. Thomas Mansfield, Forks; Mrs. Eric DeSoer, Ellensburg, and Mrs. Harry Story, Chicago; 25 grand-children and 26

   great-grandchildren. " (Pioneer Obits)

  

   -------------------------------------------------

   Info received from Leslie Forsbergincludes an extract from a book entitled "The Grand Experiment" and reads:

  

   Edna Burns who later married Harry Coventon, arrived with her parents from Birmingham, England on February 14 1890 on the steamboat Garland

   at Morse's Wharf in Port Angeles.

  

   "I saw men standing there dressed in a peculiar hunter's costume," she said. "Each put his head through a hole in the center of a blanket, then

   belted the blanket down around the waist. The men wore no hats and they wore their hair shoulder-length, carefully curled in ringlets. I saw others

   dressed like that afterward and took it that hunters couldn't get to barber shops that often and that, if they had curly hair, they prided it.

  

   My parents lunched with Judge Smith that first day. He had the only safe in town and complained that so many persons brought him their money to

   keep he could not find room for his own. I remember later walking along the beach to colony headquarters, located at Ennis Creek, east of the

   village. In between the two settlements was a federal reservation.

  

   A magnificent fir and cedar forest came down to the shore everywhere we looked. Timber had been cleared at Ennis Creek. There four buildings

   stood. Those with two floors contained apartments on the second floor. Nearby was the colony sawmill. It employed 20 men. There was also a wharf

   where sailing ships docked to load lumber. We were assigned a three-room apartment upstairs in the building which had the assembly hall and the

   printing press of The Model Commonwealth, the newspaper that had moved from Seattle.

  


   Within a few months our family moved to a house. My father got work as a carpenter and my brother worked at the mill. We enjoyed life in the

   colony. Social life was gay. The folks entertained themselves. Among us was literary, musical & theatrical talent, and there was a library, an opera

   house, a nursery and kindergarten. The future looked bright"
