MELTON

Posted by Carla Harris <charris@texas.net> on Sat, 03 Jun 2000

Surname: MELTON

Hello,

I am searching for a Max Melton. Max had a brother that moved to Salem, OR around the early to mid 1930's. Max and his brother's mother was divorced from my granduncle, Daniel Boone Melton. Daniel Boone Melton was born in Rosedale, Parke, IN in 1910. He died prematurely in a hit and run auto accident in Terre Haute, Vigo, IN on 27 Sep 1937. He was 27 yrs. old. His obituary states that he was survived by, among others, 2 sons of Salem, OR. I found out through family members that one boys name is Max. Daniel's certificate of Death Registration states he was divorced. I would like to hear from anybody that has a hint or clue as to how I can find these Meltons. I have a photo of Daniel, Max's father.
Thank you very much for any information.

Has anyone seen a Jesse Hayden Barnes in any local cemetery listings in the Woodburn area? I`m not able to locate any books on cemeteries in that county, so I do not yet have the name of the cem. I`m looking for a photo of his gravesite. Social Security info shows his last address as Woodburn, OR. He died in 1979 on June the 12th or 19th. He was born in 1896 in Wyo. Jesse was last married to a Frieda Bayley (I`m not sure of the spelling) and they had 2 daughters, June and Jerry. I`m trying to help Jesse`s dau. and granddaughter in Montana in finding out more about him. We`ve made good progress to this point. Thank you,

Larry, I don't believe Marion CO/Clackamas CO cemetaries have been transcribed. I found a listing of cemetaries in the Woodburn area (this webpage.) They seem to be 1) Belle Passi, 2) St. Luke, 3) Auroa (IOOF), 4) Hubbard, 5) McLaren (I think this is for the persons sentenced to McLaren) and 6) Old Colony Cemetary. I'm also curious as to your Barnes name as I had a g-g-grandmother named Mary "Polly" Barnes. She was Cherokee Indian and I believe out of either SC or TN. Just let me know on the cemetary. Jimmy.

I don't know where the Popcorn school is. The Knowers that I know a (little) about probably attended the Oak Grove School which still operates across from the Oak Grove Church and next to the Oak Grove Fire Station on Oak Grove Road.

Surname: Knower, De Lap, Elliott

On which side of the hill is the Popcorn school? On the west (sunset) side or the east (sunrise)?

I have limited knowledge of the Knowers. The only marriages I know about are to Elliott and De Lap.

William H. Knower (Jan 1830, Boston, MA - 12 Apr 1909, OR) m Mary Emeline Elliott (15 May 1831, Bangor, ME - 15 Jul 1910, OR). They had a son William and a daugther Susan E.
'Susie' had a child whom she named William E. Knower on 24 Dec 1887 and who d 26 Aug 1964. Presumably all in OR. This was evidently out of wedlock. William E. m Alma A., b 16 Dec 1894, d 23 Jan 1986. Susie later married Josiah Whipple De Lap, my grand uncle. 'Joe' was b 28 Feb 1865, Franklin, Vernon Co., WI, d 19 Aug 1944, Salem, Marion Co., OR, but I think he was still living near Oak Grove in Polk Co at the time of his death. Possibly he died in the Salem hospital. This couple had no issue. But Susie's son inherited the place and I would like to make contact with any descendants, if any survive.

Incidentally I have a Hiram De Lap bible that contains a family sheet taken from an earlier bible or source that shows the Elliott family. Mary Emeline was the youngest of five children b 1819 -1831. Her father was Alfonso Elliott b 14 May 1798, d 4 May 1855, Badaxe (now Vernon) Co., WI. The De Laps and Knowers knew each other in WI. Probalby the Elliotts as well, but I have not found descendants of the Elliotts in Viroqua, Vernon Co., WI., or the museum there.

It is also good to SUBSCRIBE to the COUNTY messages so you get all posts...and share information with the people researching the same area.

Also, for folks with links to Post Offices, the NARA National Archives (Seattle) has records of all post offices.

I was sure I had read one about Hayesville, but couldn't find it in the recent papers I had, so called the newspaper. A Dan Hayes, a free-lance reported called me back and told me simply this: Hayesville was named as a kind of joke from the new president at the time, about 1878, Rutherford B. Hayes (Rep). There was a gathering at the church and someone asked what the little settlement was called and there was 1 Democrat and the rest Republican and that was the joke. Hayesville is now just an area in Salem.

1895 Marion Co Census/Notts

Posted by La Velle Nott <NottNott@worldnet.att.net> on Mon, 20 Sep 1999

Surname: Nott, Knott, Naught, Kimsey

In the 1895 Marion County, Oregon census, I found what I think is another family living with my family. The people are:
Nott, Ephriam
Elizabeth
John
Addie
Hattie
Enayrd
Enoch
Mary
Claud
Cora
They all appear to have the same last name. This census lists height and weight instead of birthdates, but I believe that the first 4 on the list are adult couples. The rest would be children of the second couple, John and Addie Nott. Can anyone prove or disprove my theory? Thanks.

Researching these pioneering farm families in Marion County.
John BECKNER arrived in Marion County abt 1852 with wife, Rosetta STANTON and settled in Keizer, OR. Their son, Aaron BECKNER married Nancy Jane "Jennie" HARRIS. Aaron and Jennie's son, Charles Loren BECKNER married Myrtle GORSLINE WHELAN (young widow of James WHELAN). Myrtle's father was Delmar GORSLINE; I believe Myrtle's mother to have been named Mahala SHAW.

All of the above were early farming families in what is now
the Keizer and Gervais areas outside of Salem in Marion County.

One daughter of Charles BECKNER and Myrtle GORSLINE WHELAN BECKNER was Elsie BECKNER BOSTEN GILLIAM. Elsie's first husband was Stanley Oliver BOSTEN. I am in search of information on the BOSTEN name. (Husband #2 was Denzel GILLIAM --- a dear man that I knew as "Grandpa.")

Hi Verena:

Thank you for your response. In my family tree, I link to the "Franzen" name with my great great grandmother, Maria Machtildis Franzen, born 25 Dec 1836 in Oelde, Westfalen, Preussen, Germany. Her parents were Johann Hermann Franzen (born 1796), and Anna Catharina Erlen (born 30 Oct 1806), both from Westfalen area. She, Maria Machtildis Franzen, married my great great grandfather, Johann Theodorus Buerman, who was born 31 Oct 1835 in Lippe, Westfalen, Preussen, Germany. They were married 30 Oct 1860 in Marl, Westfalen, Preussen, Germany. Johan & Maria immigrated with their family around 1894 to America and settled around Richmand, Minnesota. Their daughter, Maria Elisabeth Buerman (my great grandmother), born 30 Jan 1865, married Johann Wilhelm Welmann (my great grandfather). Their families settled in Oregon in the Marion County area. Their daughter, Lucia Mary Wellman (my grandmother), married John Jacob Kahut (my grandfather). They had one daughter, named Gertrude Elizabeth Kahut (my mother) who married Bernard Mathias Smith (my father). I was born the 10th child in 1951.

I hope this helps you in seeing if we are related. How far back can you go back on your ancestors? Maybe we could link up that way. Let me know if you have any further questions.

DORSEY

Posted by Dale West <dwest@banet.net> on Thu, 22 Apr 1999

Surname: DORSEY, WEST

I am trying to locate information on my 2nd great grandaunt, Rosilla Ann (West) Dorsey.

In Pickens Co., Georgia Heritage 1853-1998, on page192 under the John Henry Dorsey family. Joshua Denny son of John Henry Dorsey b.1-16-1816, d.4-16-1904 and Sarah Denny. Joshua was b.3-16-1839 in S.C. married Rosilla West b.1843.

Joshua Denny Dorsey was the Pickens County, GA, Probate Court appointed executor of Rosilla's fathers estate in 1862. Folklore passed down in the West family by Rosilla's sisters and brother claim Joshua and Rosilla moved out to Oregon shortly after the Civil War ended.

Rosilla's parents, Eber and Elizabeth (Rippy) West, both died of smallpox in 1862, within weeks of each other. This left 4 young orphaned children (3 girls and 1 boy) who migrated to Texas with another older sister, Roxanna (West) Reed around 1869. After Rosilla or Joshua left Georgia the West children never heard from them again.

I have been trying to track them for several months to no avail. Recently, I received information from a great grandchild of Joshua Denny Dorsey that her great grandfather died in Salem, Oregon and had a wife named Rosilla West. This is all the information I have.

Any information (census information, death information, where they might be buried, issue, etc.) about Joshua Denny and Rosilla Ann (West) Dorsey will be greatly appreciated.

FALCONER

Posted by Al Falconer <falconer@tcc.on.ca> on Sun, 04 Apr 1999

Surname: FALCONER, BROWN

I am looking for descendants of David Falconer and Mary Brown. They came to Kelso, North Dakota in 1878 from Bruce County, Ontario, Canada and stayed until November of 1889, when they left for Sacramento, California.
Their children, all born in Ontario, were, George born 1853, Ellen Stenson born 1858, married Deforrest Conant, Mary born 1858, married Charles Conant, Janet born 1860, married William Scott, Margaret born 1864, married John H. Johnson, David born 1867 and John Wilson born 1870.
(David and John Wilson were last recorded in Salem, Marion, Oregon no date.) We have the line of Ellen and Deforrest Conant. They moved back into Canada. Their descendants are found in BC and Alberta.
We would be very interested in any information in regards to the descendants of any of the other children. We have not found where David and Mary eventually went. David is one of ten children of George Falconer and Janet Redpath.

The Redpath name is found frequently among the other branches and may also be found in David's family.
All information and inquiries welcome.

Falconer, R.R. # 1, Auburn, Ontario, N0M 1E0

Surname: Barber, Hodgdon, Zimmerman, Mullins

I am trying to track down evidence of the births, deaths, marriages, and property owned by these individuals--if you have copies of documentation or can tell me where to obtain it, please E-mail me:

Angline (Angeline?) SPRINGER married Thomas TEETERS in 1850 "near Salem Region,on French Prairie." Thomas was supposed to have owned 640 acres of land but sold it in 1853. I'm assuming this was all in Marion County, OR.

Their first child Emily May was born 22 July 1872 in San Luis Obispo County, CA, and died there 31 Oct. 1873. Serilda died 26 Dec. 1881 in Tillamook, OR. John died 7 July 1924 in Portland, OR.

Surname: WILLIAMSON, BENSON, HOLCOMB, CARROLL

I am looking for Charles M. Williamson and Etta May (Williamson)Carroll. They were listed as living in Salem, Oregon in the last will and testament of Chester Williamson (Neponsit, Bureau, Illinois) written on 06 Feb 1899. Charles and Etta May were the children of LaFayette (deceased prior to 06 Feb 1899) and Mary E. (Benson) Williamson-Holcomb(I found out that LaFayette and Mary were divorced in Marion County, Oregon in 1882).
In the proof of heirship hearings on 27 June 1910 in Bureau County, Etta May is listed as deceased, and that the share of the estate is to go to "and the surviving husband of Etta May Williamson, deceased, a granddaughter, whose name is unknown." I just found out that Etta may married a Carroll. Does anyone have any information on the child that was mentioned on Chester Williamson's last will and testament? I would really like to connect with this family.

I am seeking all genealogical and biographical information on the above children and wife of LaFayette, including spouses and descendents.

I have much information on the Williamson ancestry from early 1600's up to the present. I would like to fill in this chapter of my book. I would also be more than willing to share any and all information I have.

Surname: Seguin, Rondeau

Carl,
Sorry for the delay. Returned home from a trip last night.
In my husband's line, I show the children of Antoine and Rosalie Seguin as being:
Louis Paul Henri Seguin
Victoria-Clarenda Seguin
Cleophas Laderoute (Seguin)
Rosalie Seguin
and our Selanise (Celimine) Seguin who married Joseph Rondeau.

In searching the Oregon State Archives (via the internet) I did come across a Court Case #0823 for an Alphonso Seguin. It was a Guardianship case in Marion County for the year 1882. That's all I know about it.
The url for that site is: http://159.121.115.13/databases/Lasso.acgi

In checking further, I ran across some e-mails I received previously from Seguin descendents. I'm presuming you know Jeanne St. Martin (who is descended from Joseph Alphonse Seguin) and Judy St. Martin Bridges, a cousin of hers. If not, let me know.

Hope this helps,
Harlene

I am trying to get dates on Eli and wife. Other members of the SYKES family went to Marion County and we are trying to get a line on them.The SYKES family has a town Sykesville named after them in Jefferson County PA. The Sykes family were the first settlers in that area and thus they had the town named after them. This town is still occupied. Would appreciate any information on them or any living family in Marion County. Thank You

Surname: Sykes, Rideout, Franklin, Kimble, Sherman, Beaman

Karen-
I have an unusual connection at best, but here it goes:
My second great grandmother's [Lovina (Franklin) Sherman], siblings in their treks west [mostly from Cattaraugus county, New York] had several members become residents of Marion county, Oregon. Mostly in Woodburn, but even of those, I believe some were in Eugene or Salem at one point as well.
One was Lovina's brother Ichabod W. Franklin who ended up in Woodburn with his wife, son and daughter.
Also Lovina's neices [daughters of her brother Andrew Jackson Franklin], Addie Franklin, and Grace Beaman, ended up in Woodburn as well.
Lovina's eldest sister Sophia Ridout also had children who ended up in Woodburn: Sophia's daughter Adelia (Ridout) Franklin, and her sons Charles and William. There may have been a few others, and then there's Eveline (b.1847), Sophia's daughter, who married Lansing Sykes, and I know that they were in Waubay, South Dakota at one point, as was Lovina's brother Andrew. So while I do not have information about Lansing and Eveline Sykes moving on to Marion county, I do know that they had plenty of uncles, aunts, cousins, and siblings already there!
I have that Lansing and Eveline had a son DeHart, born 1868, but that is all I have on their children to date.
If you have seen Lansing and Eveline in Marion county, I would love to know!

You say you have a connection with Marion County and feel there may have been family sttled in Salem, Oregon...Well Cattaraugus County in New York is not far fetched for a relationship with people in Jefferson County where the Sykes and Best families were...You see many from that area went there for the timbering business...In New York you can get family information by an individual who is a historian appointed for the area. I did have an address but have to look. If I can find it I will gladly send it to you and maybe you can get info on the other family you seek.

Surname: Kimsey, Nott, Knott

Parents of Tempa L. Kimsey are:
Ephriam Nott/Knott and Elizabeth/Betsey Ann Watson. They first show in Marion County, Oregon in the 1880 census. Ephriam in mentioned in a book entitled, "Book of Rememberance of Marion County, 1840-1860". Sources say Tempa was born in Oregon, one says Union Hill. Her next oldest brother was either born in Oregon or Missouri in 1871. She had at least 4 brothers; Benjamin Franklin Nott, Charles A., Harvey W., and Cary Calvin. Cary lived in Stayton for the 15 years before he died in 1927. I was beginning to think he died without children, until I found a death cert for him and it has informant; Allen Nott of Monmouth, Oregon. I will assume that is a son. Let me know if you have anything else. Thanks.

When do you expect to publish it?

My husband's direct line includes John F. Kimsey and Macy Simpson who lived mainly in Polk Co. but Macy supposedly died on 19 Dec 1890 in Macleay, Marion, OR. Have you ever come across a death certificate or obit for her?
Do you have anything on Patrick Henry who must have died in Missouri before they moved, James Madison who made the trip as a baby and must have died before 1860 I believe, and Hannah Rapsie who was born about 1853 in Polk Co. but is not listed in the 1860 census?

My records show that John (Franklin/Francis?) Kimsey was b. 16 Feb 1812 near Huntsville in Madison Co, AL; d. 5/6 June 1880 in Rickreall, Polk Co, Or. Huldah Jane Kimsey Savery said her father was born 6th Feb 1812. John m. 4 Nov 1840 in Platte Co, Mo to his cousin, Mrs. Macy Simpson Price, b. ca 1814 AL; d. 19 Dec 1890 in Polk Co.
(I do not have place of burial for either John or Macy).

Sorry, I have no death records of Patrick, James or Hannah. Supposedly they died in infancy.

Since you mention Conlee's in your post, I assume your husband descends from the 3rd child, Tirzah Ellen Kimsey, b. 1843 Platte Co; d. 1920; m. cousin, Chris. Col. McCracken ??

Do you have records farther back on the Kimsey? James Kimsey (I) married Mary Crowley, dau of Samuel Crowley and Elizabeth Strong. Samuel Crowley may be honored as the first man to die in Rev. War in 1774.

Surname: Kimsey

You are correct, my husband Guy is descended from Terzah and Christopher Columbus McCracken through their child Mary Ellen McCracken who married William Harlow Conlee. Their child, Ruth Ellen Conlee Porter is Guy's grandmother.
Where did you get the middle name Franklin/Francis for John Kimsey? I have never seen anything other than a middle initial F.
I only have records back to James Kimsey and Mary Croley. My original research only goes back to James Kimsey and Hannah Jane McCracken. The rest just comes from the "Kimsey and Kimsey" book and a few issues of a Kimsey newsletter. My McCracken records go back to James McCracken and Mary Smith, grandparents of Christopher.
Terzah and Christopher had a common set of grandparents: James Simpson and Elizabeth Kimsey. Christopher's mother was Effariah Elizabeth Simpson and Tirzah's mother was Macy Simpson, sisters.

The ROBY and FARENDS side of the family have been very difficult to trace and I am hoping you might be able to lead me to sources in Oregon that can fill in the blanks on this side of the family. I do both family history and family genaology so any information would be helpful. I have leads on descendants of the ROBY's who still may be in Oregon.

Thank you for your assistance. I would love to include my Oregon family data in the Oregon data base at some future date.

BENSON, GREENSTREET

Posted by Ansara Hirst <jpie@eni.net> on Sun, 24 May 1998

Surname:

My Great Great Grandmother, Marilda Greenstreet crossed the Oregon Trail and homesteaded with her family in Marion County in 1851. She then married her husband, Charles enson, and claimed what is now our Century Farm in Sublimity, Marion, OR. My mother had a book called something like: "Marion County, Oregon Book of Remembrance" which included biographies of the settlers written by their kin. I grew up reading those stories, but in recent years my mother has misplaced the book. Have you heard of it? If so, can you tell me how I can purchase a copy? I heard a rumor that it was out of print. Unfortunately I don't have the year it was published. I appreciate any information you can give me. Also, I would be more than happy to contribute the knowledge I have of my ancestors to your database - or help in any other way. Thank you very much. -
