Beldon GANONG Memorial 68112753
Some corrections for the Beldon GANONG memorial:
Beldon GANONG is not a child of Charles GANONG and Elizabeth ALLEN. Elizabeth ALLEN was Beldon's step-aunt.
Beldon was born Beldon TULL, last of five children of William Samuel "Bud" TULL (1844-1930) and Isabelle SCOVILLE (1853-1885). He was born 31 Jan 1885 at Barlow's Station, Clackamas, Oregon. His mother Isabella died the day Beldon was born, family lore indicating this to be the source of his name (as in "Belle Done"). Beldon's obituary in 1960 mentions his living TULL siblings.
By 1900 Beldon started living with his step-aunt Elizabeth ALLEN and her husband Charles GANONG. Elizabeth ALLEN is the daughter of Dr. William Richardson ALLEN and his first wife, who lived ca 1846. Dr. William ALLEN then married Martha Ann PARTLOW. After Dr. William ALLEN died, Martha Ann PARTLOW ALLEN married Lt. William Hooper TULL, who was the father of Beldon's dad - William Samuel "Bud" TULL. Martha PARTLOW was also raising the children by her first husband, ALLEN, who had died. Martha PARTLOW ALLEN TULL went on to marry Samuel Barlow after husband TULL died in 1844, just a few days after their son William Samuel "Bud" was born. Thanks!
The first legal document where Beldon TULL adopted the surname GANGONG is on his 1918 World War I registration.
Note: Belden Ganong married Margaret E. Dion at Stevenson, Skamania, Washington (both of Clackamas County, Oregon) on 19 July 1921. Couple had a son and daughter.
