              The couple built a little house of their own in the woods near the foot of Negro mountain, St. Paul and D. Hay school.  The house was built on the top of stumps of trees and later a foundation was added.  They sold the home and moved to a farm near Berlin and farmed a few years for Sam Philson.  From there they moved to the Ben Bittner farm in Brothersvalley township. In 1913 a farm was bought from Gene McKelvey, Lincoln township.
              Mr. Tipton died in 1936. Mrs. Tipton had sale in the fall and left her farm to live with her daughters for a while, later returning to the farm where she lived for three years.  She then sold her property making her home with her daughters.

Esther was born on a Grenville, New Mexico homestead, the youngest of 7 children of August Hinrichs and Carolyn Rickenbach Hinrichs. Life was hard on the homestead and after several moves the famly eventually settled in Ocean Beach, California where other family members lived.

Esther excelled in math and loved playing the violin and piano. She wanted to go to college to become a math teacher but had to work to help support her parents. She became a comptometer operator and developed a love for machines with computing skills which served her well when "computers" were developed.

She met Raymond Willis Mort through her sister and they were married secretly in Yuma, Arizona so she would not lose her job since only one person in a family could work during the depression, and she was supporting her parents. Two children were born, one in Ocean Beach and the other on the Mort Ranch in Delano where they decided to try farming cotton which did not go well. WW2 broke out and Raymond worked up and down the California coast as an FCC coast-patrol radio-operator while Esther moved from place to place with 2 children in tow in order to be with him. Eventually they moved to Menlo Park after the War, built a house and finished raising their children.

Esther worked as a bookkeeper for the city of Palo Alto and also for Hinks department store. Later, after more moves, she worked for U C San Francisco Medical Center as an accountant. She moved to Pilgrim Haven (the Terraces of Los Altos) as a widow and has lived there for 30 years becoming their volunteer computer expert who was always willing to help residents with their computer problems.

Esther is survived by her children Ken Mort and wife Irene Cameron of Morgan Hill, Jean Wardrip and husband Wallace of San Jose; grandchildren Louise Mort Feldmann of Fort Collins, Colorado, David Wardrip of Mountain View, Linda Wardrip of San Jose and Michael Wardrip of Pleasanton; and great grandchildren Hugh and Liam Feldmann, Dennis Lawson, Jennie and Angela Martinez, Jaclyn, Julia and Sarah Wardrip.

Man admits Lowell killing
By Jack Moran
The Register-Guard
Published: Thursday, Feb 17, 2011 05:01AM

            A Lowell man on Wednesday admitted to murdering his wife's ex-husband last May inside a local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.
            Robert Riley Gonzales, 35, pleaded guilty in Lane County Circuit Court to a charge of murder with a firearm in connection with the fatal shooting of Fall Creek resident Kenneth Henry Mort.
            Gonzales also entered guilty pleas to four felony counts of second-degree kidnapping for holding Mort, 47, and three other Kingdom Hall elders hostage inside the Lowell building before the shooting. The Kingdom Hall is a block from the home that Gonzales shared with Mort's ex-wife.
            The motive for the killing remains unclear, although details should become known next Thursday, when Gonzales is scheduled to return to court for sentencing.
            Gonzales will spend at least 25 years in prison for murdering Mort. The guilty pleas to the kidnapping charges could lead to additional time behind bars.
            Lane County sheriff's deputies arrested Gonzales about three hours after he shot Mort several times inside the Kingdom Hall on the evening of May 12.
            Gonzales fled the area after the shooting, but deputies captured him in the woods about three miles east of Lowell. He has been held in the Lane County Jail since then.
            In addition to the murder and kidnapping charges, Gonzales faces new criminal charges that could lead to an even lengthier stay in prison.
            Just last week, Lane County prosecutors charged Gonzales with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of sodomy for allegedly assaulting two children, one of whom was younger than 12, court documents show.
            Under state Measure 11, all of those charges carry mandatory minimum prison terms upon conviction.
            It is not known whether the new charges relate to the murder case.
            Before being charged with murdering Mort, Gonzales had no criminal record in Oregon. He worked before his arrest as a heavy-equipment operator for a local company.
            Mort, meanwhile, co-owned Hitch Pro & Tow on West 11th Avenue in Eugene for about nine years.
            Court records show that Mort and his ex-wife were married nearly 17 years before divorcing in 2002. On the same day he filed divorce papers, Mort also filed for a restraining order against Gonzales. In the filings, Mort characterized his eventual killer as the "son of a friend who asked me to befriend him."
            Gonzales married Mort's ex-wife in about 2005, Gonzales's brother said during an interview last May with The Register-Guard.

Woman shot with Taser after alleged drunken hit-and-run incident
By Charles Winokoor
GateHouse News Service
Posted Feb 17, 2011 @ 09:59 AM

TAUNTON, Massachusetts;

She was drunk and literally spitting mad, police said of a city woman busted Monday night as a result of two separate incidents.
            Police allege that 23-year-old Ashley Rose Mort, of 21 Adams St., not only was drunk when she intentionally smashed her car into an ex-girlfriend's vehicle, but she later punched and spit on a cabbie who had come to police headquarters to drive her home.
            Mort's encounter with the Checker Cab driver came more than three hours after police said she failed four field sobriety tests and intentionally flubbed an alcohol-detection breath test.
            The first incident yielded charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage resulting.
            The second led to her being charged with assault and battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
            Mort was held on just $100 cash bail after arraignment Tuesday in Taunton District Court. She is due back for a pre-trial hearing on March 14.
            Her troubles with the law began at 5:30 p.m., when police responded to a report of a hit-and-run crash in front of 191 Bay St.
            The call to police, however, had come in from a resident of Albro Avenue, who told them he witnessed Mort speeding down his small street, slam on her brakes and then turn the car over to her female passenger.
            The 23-year-old passenger shortly thereafter reportedly walked over to police, handed over the keys and told them that, as per Mort's instruction, she drove the car back to Mort's Adams Street residence.
            Police said when they arrived on scene to interview the Albro Avenue witness Mort was arguing, yelling and swearing. After being placed in the back of a police cruiser she also allegedly tried kicking out the car's rear window.
            According to police, she admitted she'd been drinking but denied being in an accident. She also allegedly told cops they didn't have a case against her because they did not actually see her behind the driver's wheel.
            The woman whose Mercury Marquis was damaged told cops Mort smashed into the rear of her car, pulled in front of her and then tried starting a fight. She also told them Mort had been harassing her lately.
            At 10 p.m., after Mort was released from police lock-up, police spoke to a 37-year-old male Checker Cab driver who told them Mort had just spit and punched him in the face after he told her to stop banging on the hood of his car.
            After being informed that she would be summoned to court for assault and battery, Mort allegedly admitted she had spit on the cabbie but denied hitting him.
            Police allege she then stated over and over that she was not leaving and to “just arrest me.”
            Despite being warned that she needed to leave the police lobby, Mort continued arguing and was arrested, but not without a struggle.
            While being escorted to a female cell area, she allegedly resisted and prevented cops from closing the cell door. Mort then was warned she would be subjected to an electronic control device — also known as a Taser — if she persisted.
            She did in fact persist, police said, and was then tased, at which point she became cooperative. Mort subsequently was treated for the superficial wounds caused by the Taser's two probes and held until her arraignment the next morning.

It was the featured Earth Day story on Discovery News for their 3 million online readers. In April, he partnered with museum director Rebecca Hoffberger and New York Times writer Anne Raver to jury the second annual Earth Day Art of Stewardship exhibition and sale benefiting the Howard County Conservancy.

Mort lectured at the University of Maryland as well as Georgia Southern University in conjunction with his exhibition at the Averitt Center for the Arts. His artwork graced the spring 2011 cover of Washington literary journal Little Patuxent Review and currently highlighted on for his Clinton Global Initiative Partnership with Circle of Blue the leading global organization studying the earth’s fresh water crisis.

On the international scene, Mort was one of 10 American artists honored by the Foundation for Arts and Preservation in Embassies (FAPE) at the opening of the new United Nations Embassy in New York City; and he was selected to be a featured artist on the new Arts in Embassies Program website.

Mort will celebrate his 25th anniversary exhibition at Somerville Manning Gallery of Greenville, Del., with “Night Into Day,” an exhibition of new works opening Oct. 14. This fall also will find Mort’s art featured in the American Visionary Art Museum’s “All Things Round” exhibition opening Oct. 3 in Baltimore. Finally, Mort’s "Zero G Apples painting," recently selected for the first art exhibition in space aboard the International Space Station, will have its public debut at the New York City premiere of “Zero Gravity,” opening first at the Charles Bank Gallery, to benefit the Challenger Centers.
