A Pioneers' Granddaughter
RE: Alex L. Martin
Thank you. I am cautiously optimistic this may be my gg grandmother's brother. Much work was done earlier, pre-internet days, by family member on Martin line which I had to back out of. Hazel Martin Craddock passed right before 1900c and, of course, the 1890c tragedy, which is enough to make one cry at times. She passed shortly after childbirth and no mention of her anywhere I can find in newspapers, etc... I see you added in info I already had on Alexander's wife Nancy. I was going to verify further before asking you for edit, but you added already.

I have yet to find a "Hazel or Orlena" in Missouri in her early childhood to link her to parents. But plenty of "Martha's, Cinthia's and Mary's". If you have any additional info or ideas, please feel free to email me. I have public and private set. Thank you for your efforts.

I am researching my great grandmother Martin line and am interested in this memorial. Can you tell me more about the information
listed on memorial page (80255424) and where dates, etc... came from? The headstone is in disarray. There are two names
mentioned but only one name seen on headstone. Thank you.

RE: Children of Worth C. Sherrill
The information on the children of Worth C Sherrill was incorrect. It needs to be corrected by the person that recorded it. I do not know where their info came from but since one of his step children is my father and the twins were my step Uncles and Dorothy was a step aunt, all of whom I knew well. My father and his sister, Grace were never adopted by Worth C. Sherrill. Their father was James Finley Sherrill, a distant cousin of W.C. Sherrill. Thus the last names of the children are the same.
If you wish to transfer the memorial to me I can correct the information. Thanks, Sharon

THE YAKIMA HERALD North Yakima, Washington, 25 February 1892

Death of a pioneer woman

Mrs. Lucy Tanner passes away after a useful and Christian life of la grippe and old age.

Mrs. Tanner was born in Warren Connecticut, October 25th 1812, her maiden name being Lucy Carter. She was married to Elish Tanner in 1835 and immediately after journeyed to Illinois, where they made their home for fifteen years. Catching the western fever they crossed the plains by ox team, arriving at Forest Grove Oregon in 1891 [sic]. After spending another fifteen years in and about that place they removed to Washington and in '70 were among the first settlers of the Ahtanum valley.
Mr and Mrs Tanner were pioneers nearly all of their lifetime and pioneers of the highest type. They carried Christian principles and Christian institutions with them where ever they went. They moved to Illinois when the foundation of churches and colleges were being laid and Mr. Tanner's brother became president of the Illinois College, where after performing valuable service, he died a short time ago. Mr and Mrs Tanner while at Forest Grove, rendered acceptable aid to the Congregational Church, the Tualatin Academy and the Pacific University. On coming to the Yakima county twenty two years ago they immediately started a Sunday School in their own house, and three years after were the leaders in the organization of the Ahtanum Congregational Church, being thus the prime movers in the organization of the first Sunday School and the first Protestant Church in central Washington.
Mr Tanner was drowned some ten or twelve years ago while attempting to ford the Yakima river at the point where the Nelson bridge now stands. It was Sunday, and Mr and Mrs. Tanner were trying to cross the swift stream for the purpose of attending church. The horses became entangled in the harness and Mr. Tanner was swept away, while his wife narrowly escaped the same fate.
The deceased leaves two children, Mrs. G.W. Carey of Spokane and Mrs S. T. Vivian of the Ahtanum, who will mourn the loss of a kind and gentle mother and a noble Christian woman. She died a peaceful death relying on the faith she had maintained all her life through.

He was married to Minnie Rowling, who later married John Sayer. I have sent the links to both spouses to the manager of Minnie's memorial.

Yes, wasn't that a great story about the dog? As I search for other Rossland obituaries I will keep an eye out for an update on "Poor Old Mike."

Oddly, in June of 1898 a small grave near Rossland was exhumed. "The box was nicely lined. A lot of rocks had been laid above it, the grave rounded up with soft dirt, and a foot and head stone raised." As suspected, it was did turn out to be someone's pet dog. "A gentleman who saw it remarked that far more attention had been given this dog's grave than is shown many children buried in Rossland."

There were far too many children dying in those times - cholera, diphtheria, typhoid, "inanition" (failure to thrive), pneumonia, and even malnutrition. Sad.

RE: Mary E Thomas
Checked my library for Evergreen and among the large Thomas family were unable to find the ones you are searching for. It was worth a shot. Edits accepted.

RE: Mary E Thomas
OK then I will accept your edits. I have an extensive photo library from Evergreen. Perhaps I have someone else you might be looking for. Let me know.

Mary E Thomas

See you created a memorial for her way back in 2009 when her burial was unknown. Now we have both. Do you desire to keep both or should we delete mine and edit yours? See you submitted many edits for me for the three family members. I did include the suggested bio information on the memorial, but will hold off on the edits for now until the decision of which to keep.
You have been very busy.

RE: Isaac Tuttle
The First Presbyterian Church in Morristown has had a list of burials in their cemetery. I tried to gain access to that list today using this link:
and was unable to do so. Anyhow, in the list was Isaac Tuttle and his cause of death was listed as pleurisy. You might contact the church to get confirmation or possibly the Morris County Library would have that information. They should have excellent genealogy records in their reference sections.

Hello again, NW

Thank you for adding miss Nancy, here. Her brother was my grandfather, James Comer.

Would you transfer her to me as well?

Where did you go get her Calif death certificate? I have been using the for WA state..., I have just one pic of her to glean from the other family photo.

Happy Sunday!!

Hello NWPioneer:

I have been trying to get a pic of my great grandmother's grave spot. I believe you added her in the Tacoma Cemetery. I called the cemetery today to get a location to make it easier for someone, (perhaps you told me there was none, I can't remember right now...) I guess that's why I like even a pic of the ground, if that's the case. The cemetery just told me she is not listed there, but she must be somewhere. Do you have any idea how I can go about this going forward?

Perhaps she is not buried here after all....?

Thank you so much, Pioneer...

Molly Comer
