Arizona Pioneer Dies In Prescott

Prescott, Mar. 30 - Mrs. Alice Pemberton, native Arizonian, born on a
ranch which was the original site of old fort Whipple, died at the
Arizona Pioneers Home today, where she had been a guest two years. She
was 75 years old.

Her parents, Hannah Shivers and Robert Postle, pioneered in the Chino
valley area, settling on the ranch 18 miles north of here where Fort
Whipple was established December 21, 1863.

John A. Goodwin, first territorial governor, and his party stayed at
the fort until the capital was established at Prescott the following
May. The fort then was removed to its present site a mile north of

Mrs. Pemberton, widow of the late Sam Pemberton, rancher, attended
Tempe Normal School and later taught in Miller Valley several years.

Survivors include half-brother Carl Rees, and Helen Postle, sister-in-
law, both of Chino valley.
