Glenn BUTLER Wed 6 Nov 2002
There is a book titled "Pioneers of Malheur County" or close to that name and it has information on the BUTLER family. I know that the book is not available for sale but I wonder if somehow the information on those pages could be faxed or mailed to me .My father is Conley BUTLER, son of Elbert and Ada (GLENN). This part of the family lives on the east coast and would appreciate any help on our family history. FAX #407-339 9601, or contact me for my mailing address. Thank You.

Listed in the 1910 and 1920 census of Malheur City are Mike ABLE with wife Mary and children. Also listed is a Mathias OLK with wife, daughter and grandson, Leo. All were of German descent. Has anyone ever run across these families in their research? I believe Mathias is buried in the Malheur City Cemetery. All families were gone by the 1930 census to Walla Walla, WA. Please contact me if you have any information at all on these families. Mike and Mary ABLE immigrated to the United States in 1892 and were naturalized in 1900 according to the census records.

Hello! I'm running out of luck with the DAVIS family. Many of my family are buried at Evergreen Cemetery, including my grandfather, Victor CRESCENT who was married to Dora Edith DAVIS. She is buried near her last husband, Jerry HENSLEY. I believe William Henry and Martha Sullivan DAVIS are my great-grandparents. I know she has/had a brother who lived in Ontario, my Uncle Em - I don't know if he's still living. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm researching Basil Bois DAIRY (DEARY, DERRY) who purchased 160 acres in Jordan Valley, Malheur Co, OR in 1916 from the Vale Land Office. Basil was born on Mar 22, 1852 in Jacksonville, Oregon Territory. As a young man he joined his older brother, Jacob DEARY, in Owyhee County, ID. Basil never married. According to his obituary, he was a "pioneer rancher and stockman of the Jordan Valley country, having lived there for the past 33 years." He died in a Boise hospital on August 16, 1918 and is buried in the Jordan Valley Cemetery, Malheur County, OR. Thank you for any additional information!

Elisabeth SHARMAN (1828-1872) married George Prevost WARD (1814-1881) of Bury, Quebec. They had seven children; Herbert James, Wellington Arthur, Harriet Persis, and John Alden and families all went out to Oregon in the Nyssa and Corvallis areas. Sarah Jane WARD HUNT's family went to New Hampshire. The Charles Henry WARD family stayed in the Quebec and Ontario areas. I have most of the information on these families but need an update from 1975 on. All nine children of Elisabeth's parents are almost complete. I have the Artemus WARD genealogy. I would love to hear via email to get updates and location of this family.

I want information about any homestead Elmer TURNER may have had in Malheur County in the early 1900s.. His wife was Maggie TIPTON. I would like Army information and place of death.

Andrea ROWE Thu 20 Mar 2003
I learned that my great-grandmother's sister is still alive. Last time I heard, she lived in Vale Oregon and that is why I am leaving this post. Does anyone have access to a relatively new telephone book? It is worth a shot to me to see if her address or telephone number is listed. Because my grandpa has been dead now for 26 years (I'm only 25) our connections to this family are almost nil. Her name is Ornetta Spencer WHEELER. She is my great-grandma, Ona Golden Spencer THOMPSON's baby sister.

Gretchen MORTIMORE-THILL Sun 23 Mar 2003
I am looking for any information on Edward Merritt MORTIMORE who died in Ontario, Malheur Co., OR on Sept 4, 1943. He was married to Martha TUCKER abt. 1895 and she died sometime around 1950, I believe in Malheur Co. They had four children: Merton, Olive, Paul and Evelyn.

Levi founded the town of Westfall in Malheur County about 1880. Any information about this family would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Katherine I. WALTON Sat 26 Apr 2003
I am looking for information on Mr and Mrs Fred STRASBAUGH, Kietha and Stanly of Nyssa, Oregon. In the obituary, they are listed as other relatives attending Grandpa WAGNER's funeral in June 1949. In November 1952, Mrs. F. J. STRASBAUGH is listed as a surviving sister of Alexander WAGNER. She is still from Nyssa. When Jacob WAGNER, who was the father of Alexander, died in 1968, she is not listed as a survivor. I believe that Mrs. STRASBAUGH was Lydia WAGNER, daughter of Jacob and Christina, but have no evidence to back this up. Anyone who has information, please e-mail me. Thank you.
