Kathryn Lumm memorial
Bev -
I would be happy to transfer management of Kathryn Lumm's memorial to you, if you wish. I am not related; I was out photographing in the cemetery that day. Just let me know.

RE: Leander McKenney Obit
The obituary was in the Eastern Clackamas News, Estacada, OR, Apr 11, 1918. Leander McKenney was my great grandfather. Would love to know more about him if you're related and have any information beyond the family links.

I have now place a marriage document for William Auguster Webber, Sr.. Please see what you think. Or, do you believe that the family did not know how to spell the family name and so just guessed at it's correct spelling. They had at least seven children to keep the family name from being forgotten.

See, Riddle Cemetery.

Thank you for your help, Martin Burrell

His middle name came from his mother's maiden name.

I would be interested in seeing how many times his middle name appears besides newspaper. I have also seen U.S. Fed. Census Reports where it is misspelled. I found his mother's father citizenship papers with the correct spelling, Webber. Also, her father's Multnomah County marriage record can be found at GFO in Portland. They have the original bound records. In fact they were given all the bound records after they were microfilmed and discarded by the City of Portland. This was a gross error to say the least.

I grant you that this is an unusual spelling. But, not unheard of. His wife's family took him in when he arrived in Portland. He proved to be a hard worker in his father-in-laws orchards. Alfred Cornutt had brought a wagon full of apple trees to Oregon. The apple trees had no known pest in all of Oregon. Alfred was very careful not to bring any with him.

His first, second and third apple crops were a gold mine. The word got out to other farmers including my great-great-grandfather who lived in Portland since arriving by a family ship in 1851. His name was Thomas Frazar. Thomas had brought a pre-made two story store from his hometown near Boston. He brought a helper with him to run the store. Portland was found to be too small to support the new store. He ended up selling the store goods they brought with them and moving the building to a new location and purpose.

Thomas and his wife went on to be a very active character in the life of Portland. He was also appointed by by President Lincoln and his Administration to be the Federal Tax Collector for Oregon. During the Civil War it was his responsibility to keep gold and silver mined in Oregon from falling into southern hands.

He is buried with much of his family in Lone Fir Cemetery. Much of the first few crops were sent to California and sold for one dollar an apple.

Thomas Frazar bought land for an orchard that was already started by another farmer. It included today's Laurelhurst Park. Within a few years he lost most of his children and a wife. Also, all the apple crops. Others had imported trees from the east coast and were not careful about not bringing in pests and disease.

Result: most all the apple trees were burned or pulled out of the ground in land surrounding Portland, Milwaukie and Gresham. In Powell Valley alone hundreds, or, thousands of fruit trees were destroyed.

Alfred Cornutt's family and William August Webber and wife moved to better farm land for fruit trees in southern Oregon. Without so much rain the trees had a much better chance of avoiding mildew, root-rot, and poor weather that led to frozen crops. My family started pear orchards in Medford. When sold many, many years ago the selling price was over 1 million dollars. They went on to produce pears in other nearby orchards for many years. They orchards are now still in operation by others.

Hope to hear from you, Martin Burrell

Greetings and best wishes,

Roseburg Cemetery. His Oregon Death Certificate has his middle name spelled wrong...he was given his mother's maiden name for his middle name.

Please, make a note in the caption for his Oregon Death Certificate to the effect of the spelling error.

Thank you, Martin Burrell

Catherine Hayes McDowell
Bev, After much digging, we've discovered that Catherine Hayes McDowell's son, James, is not the James McDowell who married Nancy Maney/Money.

The James McDowell who married Nancy Maney/Money is the son of Samuel & Mary Studebaker McDowell. (Samuel, being John's brother.)

1. A newspaper article featuring Jsmes' & Nancy's grandson, Abraham Bellis, found at
2. The book: "Jackson County, Ohio: history and families, 175th anniversary, 1816-1991" pg. 177.

I am Carl Showers' granddaughter. Where did you find the information that Carl Showers was Bonny's first husband? I have been searching, but can't find a connection between the two anywhere but here. Thank you.
