Alanson Beers
Greetings, please add at least apart of this or all of it to the article to you wrote about his father buried at Lee Mission. I hope that you are as happy about this discovery as I am.

Sincerely, Martin Burrell

=====================================
On 01 December 1906, Benjamin Beers was honored as being the oldest pioneer living in the State of Oregon, at that time, by Polk County's, Dallas Itemizer newspaper.

"Mr Beers was born November 5, 1823. In 1836 his father [Alanson Beers] and family started for Oregon by water, coming by Cape Horn, the trip required 140 days to reach the Sandwich Islands, and encountered many, many difficulties."

"They remained on the Islands three months, awaiting an opportunity to come [around South America and on up it's coast towards Oregon], and arrived here in 1837. The father came as a farmer and blacksmith for the Methodist mission located at that time 10 miles below Salem on the Willamette river."

"B. Beers...being one of three children, attended the mission school with the Indian scholars, and later attended the Salem schools. He was married May 2, 1860, to Miss Eliza P. Smith, four children being born to them, two sons and two daughters. The daughters are both dead, but the sons are living. His wife died in February, 1878."

"Mr. Beers spent several years on the Yaquina river, and has since lived in different places, having spent the last two years in Independence [Polk]. He has enjoyed good health, and his activity would be an inspiration to men 20 years his junior."

"Alanson Beers father of [Benjamin], Joseph Gale and John T. Hill, were the members of the first executive committee of the Oregon Territory, having been elected by the people in 1843."

Rb,
Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you do to get info & pictures of our loved ones. I really appreciate it. I was wondering if you would transfer ownership of my two relatives to me. Nancy Dickerson Welch #12412889 and James Welch # 12412870. Nancy is my 3rd great aunt and I have a lot of info on her and it would mean a lot to me. Thank you so much,

William S. Ladd, Riverview Cemetery
Hello - I ran across this article and thought you might like to add it to the William S. Ladd record:

The body of William S. Ladd, which was taken from its resting place in Riverview cemetery, in Portland Monday night of last week was recovered last Friday by Chief of Police Barns, of Oregon City and Detectives Welsh and Simmons, of Portland. Don D. Maguire, Charles Montgomery, E. I. Long, and William Ricter, all of Oregon city, are lodged in the city jail, charged with the crime of removal. Mongomery has made a confession, implicating Maguire and the other men. The body was buried at Maguire's Park, a well-known landmark on the Willamette river a mile and a half below Oregon City. His hiding place was cleverly concealed by moss and leaves and it would never have been discovered had not Montgomery weakened and led the officers to it.

Rudolf Gloor
Happy to send Rudolf to you. He was all by himself, no other Gloors around. I remember feeling sad for him when I took the photos last summer. My German family around him though, he's been in good company :)
