Birth: Jun. 23, 1888
South Dakota, USA
Death: May 24, 1960
Butte County
California, USA

May 24, 1960, Butte Co., CA

"Augustus* [1879-1948] and Evelyn L. (Cole)* Bethard were married February 17, 1908. Evelyn [1888-1960] was born in Milltown, South Dakota to Luman E. and Lydia A. (Brink) Cole. My parents had 8 children: Otis Leroy* [1908-1932]; Melvin Willard; Lawrence Otis; Wesley Wilson; Myron Grant and Myra Grace - twins; William Wallace; and myself, Mildred Elsie. After Father's death, Mother married Daniel A Gifford. Father was 52 years old when I was born; consequently many of the names mentioned in this article meant little or nothing to me, nor did I understand their relationship to us until I began researching our family history. However, I do remember my aunts and Uncle Arthur [Father's siblings]. Augustus Bethard was one of the original trustees of the Clear Creek Cemetery and I have served as trustee since 1952." See: "Family Histories and Stories published in the Paradise Genealogical Society 'Goldmine.' Vol. 25, No. 1, Spring 1992, page 19: "Sampson Bethard / Relatives / Descendants" by Mildred (Bethard) Sciligo. [*] buried in Clear Creek Cemetery, Butte, CA.
