The family is listed on the Pass Creek Precinct census of 1910. In 1912 the family moved to Albany and d. 19 Apr 1939 in Benton County. Welin's brothers were Arthur E. NEWTON b. 1861 m. Ellen E.

He and his family are listed in the 1900 census in Pass Creek Precinct. His wife was Clara Etta LEIGHTON. Their living children were: Lawrence Euberto NEWTON, Sr., Clarence Lee NEWTON, Elmer Irwin NEWTON, and Ralph Lionel NEWTON. Lawrence stayed in Douglas County most of his life. In 1925 he was operating a cafe in Canyonville. He married twice, to Jessie Mae BROOKS and Goldie Monema DAVIS HAMILTON. He had seven children. He moved to Tiller c. 1950 and died in a nursing home in Roseburg in 1977. Clarence stayed in Drain, married Florence Jane RAYMOND, and died there 11 Sept 1931. His children were Gordon, Rosa and Veta. Elmer married Mary Esther ALLEN in Drain and in 1923 was working for the Pioneer Mill in Douglas County. His father suffered a stroke in 1928 so he changed professions, and became a dealer in second-hand articles. He purchased what had been the Drain Academy and the house next door, working there until moving to Marshfield in 1936 and on to Ashland, Jackson Co. in 1947 where he died in June, 1976.

GEORGE. Looking to make contact with the children and/or grandchildren of my great-uncle, Leopold (Slim) GEORGE; b:Jan 7/1876 in St. Paul, Kansas, d:June, 1951 in Oregon. 1914 Leopold GEORGE moved with his mother & adult siblings to Killam, Alberta Canada when the Canadian West was being settled. Circa, 1930's Leopold George & his wife, Theresa (VENNEMAN) GEORGE, moved to, I believe, the Portland area, but due to a lack of info. within the family in Canada, could very well be anywhere in OR state. They had 5 children: Maxine, Mary, Kay, Edmond, and Nick. All the children would have been born between 1902 - 1920.
GEORGE, HELGERSON, HETZLER, JOHNSON, MURPHY, PETERSEN, WILSON posted by Don George on Sunday, June 29, 1997
WILSON. Looking to make contact with the children and/or grandchildren of Petronella "Nell" (George) WILSON & Raymond WILSON. Nell (George) WILSON was born Dec 2, 1883, died Sept. 1966 in Oregon. 1914 Petronella (George) WILSON moved with her mother & adult siblings to WA state temporarily. Most of the GEORGE family eventually moved on to settle in Killam, Alberta Canada. My guess is Nell met Ray WILSON in WA state, married, and settled in the Portland area, and never did move to Killam, Alberta Canada with the rest of the family. Due to a lack of info within the family in Canada, this family could very well have settled elsewhere in OR state, but probably the Portland area. They had 6 children: Jeanette, Bernadette married Carl HELGERSON, Marie married Ben JOHNSON, Dan married Rose PETERSEN, Bill married Eva HETZLER, and Ted married Harriet MURPHY.

WEGER have any family ties to Douglas Co. OR? Where did he go after 1882? Any further information on him? 3- when did Henry C. SHAFF (b. 23 Dec 1829 NY) die? He is buried in Wimberly Cemetery, Glide OR with his mother (Lucy Phinetta SHAFF DOOLITTLE TRASK) but there is no date on the tombstone. 4- when and where did Isaac MATTHEWS (b. 15 Jul 1853) die?
