Pierre Emile Mathiot The Oregonian, 16 Sep 1898

Peter E. Mathiot, a pioneer of 1852, died very suddenly yesterday morning at 1 o'clock at his home, 468 East Lincoln, corner of East Ninth street. Mr. Mathiot had been about the house and on the street Wednesday, and while his health had been failing for the past two years there was nothing in his condition at any time that day to cause his wife and children apprehension. He had been somewhat restless during the night, and at 12 o'clock got out of bed, but soon retired. At 12:30 he arose again and extinguished the lamp that had been left burning, and remarked to Mrs. Mathiot that they could now go to sleep. At 1 o'clock Mrs. Mathiot made the startling discovery that her husband was dead. He had expired without a struggle.

Mr. Mathiot was 59 years and 5 months old, and was born in Montbéliard, France, in 1839. With his parents he came to America when he was 3 years old and settled in Ohio, where the family lived for nine years, till in 1852 they came to Butteville, Or., in company with quite a train of emigrants. He was married to Miss Cecile Mathiot in Butteville. The couple moved to where Woodburn now stands and became the first settlers at that point. They lived in Woodburn for many years, during which time Mr. Mathiot was justice of the peace and postmaster, and was a man of considerable prominence and influence. Leaving Woodburn, Mr. And Mrs. Mathiot moved to Portland, where they have lived ever since, except a few years spent at Walla Walla.

For a number of years he engaged in the grain-buying business with his brother, A. Mathiot, at Walla Walla and other points in the interior. Their operations were at one time very extensive, and they amassed considerable wealth. However, in a big wheat deal they lost about $60,000. Mr. Mathiot also engaged in mining in the Coeur d'Alene country. In all his extensive business operations he sustained a reputation for sound integrity. While he was not a religious man he believed in and practiced the golden rule in all its bearings, which was all the religion he knew or cared to know.

A widow and three children, two sons and one daughter, Nelvil A. Charles E. and Camille E. Mathiot, survive him. All live on the East Side, and all were quickly summoned to his home when death came.

He had two brothers and three sisters living. His brother Edward lives on the old home place at Butteville, and his other brother, A. Mathiot, lives at Walla Walla. Mrs. C. A. Labbe, of Portland; Mrs. Cephalie Feurier, of San Francisco; and Mrs. F. J. Brown, of Olympia, are sisters of the deceased. All the relatives have been notified of the death, and if possible they will be present at the funeral which will take place next Sunday. It is supposed that Mr. Mathiot died from heart trouble, so swiftly was he stricken down. Within the past year he suffered a severe attack of paralysis and lay unconscious for a day. He recovered from this attack, but was never fully restored. He had considerable property interests in the city, mostly on the East side.
