Pickle - John E. Pickle was born in Canada, Feb. 9, 1840. He came to Minnesota when a small boy. He served in the Civil War on the Northwestern Frontier, fighting against the Indians. About 57 years ago he was converted at Golden Gate, Minn., and joined the Seventh-day Adventist church. On account of his wife's health, he moved to Montana in 1881, and they were the first Adventist family in the state, so far as known. Elder J. W. Watt, brother of C. E. Watt, of College Place, came to their home in Bedford, and held a series of meetings. Mrs. Pickle lived 10 years after coming to Montana. Brother Pickle was married twice afterward. His last wife died 3 years ago, since that time he has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. W. D. Emery, of College Place. Of the eight children born, Mrs. Emery is the only one left. Through all the hardships of pioneer life; through many disappointments and troubles, his hope came through triumphant. As a tired warrior, he lay down to rest, awaiting the call of his Master whom he served so faithfully during the many years of his pilgrimage. In the last hour, "when day shall break, and shadows flee," he will come forth in the glad resurrection of the just. W. A. Gosmer - North Pacific Union Gleaner, February 2, 1932, 7.

"Review and Herald" and "North Pacific Union Gleaner" are Seventh-day Adventist Church magazines.
