Catherine Whetstone Fix
Birth: Oct. 2, 1838
Illinois, USA
Death: Apr. 28, 1925
Juliaetta
Latah County
Idaho, USA

In 1875 near Walla Walla, Washington, Eleazar married Catherine Whetstone Taber, a widow with three sons. He then began hauling freight through Lewistone, Idaho.

In the fall of 1877, Eleazar homesteaded a place on what is now Fix Ridge. He built a log cabin and left his step-son Louis Taber and Tom Pettijohn (a family friend) to batch in it until spring when he moved his family up. Homestead rules required that the land be occupied contnuously for the homestead to prove up.

There were no roads or bridges, so they had to come through Genesee and nearly to Moscow (a very round about route) to find a place to cross the Potlatch River and get on the Ridge a Fix was born in 1879, the first white child born on Fix Ridge.
