CARDING, HARDEN, SHELTON posted by Cassie Shelton on Sunday, May 2, 1999

I am looking for any information on Hawkins SHELTON and his wife Amanda CARDING or HARDEN. Hawkins was born in Kentucky and Amanda is from Missouri. Both ended up West and married on 18 March 1856 in Jackson County, Oregon. They then headed to Umatilla County and farmed until showing up in Star, Idaho in the 1860s. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

TUCKER posted by Jinx & Karen Tucker on Friday, June 4, 1999

We are looking for information about Ezra TUCKER. He was born in Nebraska in 1880. We believe that he died in Umatilla County (in or around Pendleton) in 1942. Is there a way to find where he may be buried? If there are any living relatives we hope that you will contact us. Thanks in advance for your help.

HAGEN, JONES posted by Dorman on Friday, June 4, 1999

My grandfather, Robert Lee JONES was born in Oregon, Umatilla Co., near Walla Walla, WA in about 1879. He had a sister named Sarah who may have been born there also. His father was John W. JONES and his mother was Alice HAGEN JONES. I don't know when they came west. They later moved to Bradley, California where John was a sheriff's deputy or constable and owned the local saloon. He was killed in a horse/buggy accident. All of this happened before 1911, when my mother was born in Bradley.

ALLISTER, HENDRICKS, OSTERMAN posted by George D. Hudson on Monday, July 5, 1999

I am seeking any information on my grandfather, Allen Bell HENDRICKS, or other members of his family. Allen Bell HENDRICKS was born March 4, 1892, in Athena, Umatilla Co., Oregon. His father was David HENDRICKS & his mother maiden name was MC ALLISTER. I don't know the first name of his mother. His younger siblings were Hazel "Jack" HENDRICKS, Julian HENDRICKS and Anita HENDRICKS. Anita later married and became Anita OSTERMAN. Allen HENDRICKS left home as a young teenager and didn't make recontact with his family until the 1940s. My mother (deceased) never allowed me to ask my grandfather (deceased) about the circumstances of why he had runaway and the HENDRICKS family was never talked about. So, now I'm trying to put the pieces together and possibly meet lost cousins. Thank You,
