General Notes: Shared notes with Barbara jennih2003@aol.com july 2003

Census: 1910, Independence, Polk County, Oregon shows Huldah Jane a widow living alone. Having 5 children but only 3 living.

Property Tax Roll: 1908, Independence, Polk County, Oregon, lots 5 and 6, Block 15 shows value of lots as $60 and value of Improvements as $140, total taxable property was $200

Residence: 1901, On October 23, 1901 Huldah Jane Ball purchased lots 5 and 6 in Block 15 of E A Thorps, Town of Independence, Polk County, Oregon , the conveyance was witnessed by J.W. Ball. She paid $50 to secure mortage.

Note - Death Certificate states Huldah was born in Iowa, have not found any other record showing Iowa.

Note -- Family Bible shows spelling to be "Huldah".

Huldah Jane was a woman of determination. At the age of 59, she managed to scrimp and save enough money to put a $50 down payment on a home in Independence. A small white house with a white picket fence, and a barn was situated on two city lots, located at 96 2nd street. Then again in June of 1912, Huldah managed to purchase additional land. Land records indicate that payment was made in full, for 160 acres located in Gilliam County. Most likely she rented out the land for additional income.

In November of 1912, Huldah Jane married Samuel Bennett. I find no records that she ever sold her home in Independence, so it is assumed that they continued to live there.

Per Alberta Ball, Huldah Jane's grandaughter: In the winter of 1918, there was a huge flu outbreak, with hundreds suffering, and Huldah Jane was one of those. The Hospital in Independence was not yet built, but all the hospitals in the Salem area were opening their doors durning the outbreak including the State Hospital for the Insane. This is where Huldah Jane was taken, but she did not recover and died there.

Birth date may be March 8th?

Email from Barbara Hartsook, March 2004:
Hi George;

I have been working on the Ball family again, trying to dig up information. I checked out Land Patients and found a few things. Halleck Ball purchased 160 acres of land in Jackson County in 1920, probably near Eagle Point. I find no record he ever sold the land. Also Elmer purchased 80 acres in Tillamook County, again no record he ever sold the property. And, do you remember me telling you about the letter I found, to Huldah Jane, from a Lawyer in Condon?
Well, I found a Land Patient showing she purchased 160 acres, paid in full, in 1912, in Gilliam County, Condon is the county seat. She purchased it a few months before she married Samuel Bennett.

I would assume, she rented out the land, for additional income. She never sold the land, but I do not know if she willed it to one of the kids, or if Samuel got everything. I do know he remarried a little less than 4 months after Huldah Jane died. I have never been able to find a Will for her.

Maude was born after Allen and Huldah Ball arrived in Oregon. Leslie Pearl's daughter remembers her father talking about little Maudie. But she does not remember when Maudie died, but the 1900 census does not show Maude, so she must have died before that time.

Article from Independence News Paper(James William Ball-sometimes called William)

William Ball Badly Burned ... Recovery Doubtful ...Breathed Flame into Lungs From Rock Heater; Second Time he has been Burned.
William Ball, engineer for the Kibble Construction County, now paving C street, was seriously if not fatally injured, when he was burned Wednesday while lighting the blast of the rock burner. About ten days ago he was burned on the face and hands in the same way. Ball was taken to a Salem hospital as soon as possible. Reports last night were not very encouraging although it was reported that he was resting easy. While burned on the face and hands, the breathing of the flame into his lungs may take his life. Another workman was burned also at the same time but not seriously.
William Ball is a well known resident of Independence and is a hard working and industrious man. He is married and has two sons. They live in north Independence.

Article from Independence News Paper September 4, 1910
WILL LAUNCH A NEW BOAT ... NEW BOAT TO BE LAUNCHED BEFORE JUNE FIRST .... Independence Man is Building New Boat to be Launched in Willamette.
Wm. Ball is building a boat to run on the Willamette river between this city and Salem for the exclusive accommodations of passengers and light freight. Mr. Ball expects to have the boat in operation before June 1st, next. It will be a double deck vessel propelled by a 40-horse power gasoline engine, which had already been purchased, and will be shipped to Independence soon.
Mr. Ball recently passed the required examination before the examining board of engineers at Portland and is licensed to operate the new craft as soon as it can be finished and launched. It is his intention to give the traveling public the best service that has ever been given on the Willamette river between here and Salem, and the boat will probably make at least three trips daily each way.
This new enterprise means a great deal to the people of Independence and tributary towns and the proprietor should not only receive the hearty encouragement of Independence, but he should also receive their support.
To equip the boat as he intends, will mean an expenditure of considerable money and it is deserving of all possible encouragement. Mr. Ball will make every effort to meet the demands of the traveling public and the boat will be provided with all the requilities for comfort.

Death: 2 JUN 1943 in McMinnville, Polk County, Oregon 4
Burial: 8 JUN 1943 Masonic Cemetery, County Portion, McMinnville, Polk County, Oregon
Note: Roy Ball never married. He was crippled from birth. One leg was shorter and he walked with a very distinctive limp. This did not stop him from going to school and helping on the farm. Roy attended the first class of Mill Creek School, Buell, Polk County, Oregon, in 1900 and is listed in the first roster of the school. Roy lived with his parents until their death in the 20's, then moved in with his brother, Winfred and family. Around 1938 he moved to the "County Poor Farm" in McMinnville, Yamhill County, Oregon. His neice, Patricia Ball, said he made belts and brooms on the farm, to sell. Roy passed away, living on the County Poor Farm, in 1943. Rather than calling to notify Roy's brother Winfred, the County mailed a letter, which was mailed to the wrong address. It was about two months before Winfred got word of Roy's death. By that time, Roy had been buried in the county cemetery. Winfred paid to have Roy's remains move to Portland, where he could rest beside his parents. In 1987, It was discovered, by doing research on the family tree, that Roy's remains were never moved. We were told that in 1943, the war was going strong and that there was a shortage of grave diggers, and that some how, it was overlooked. After more than 40 years, the family decided to let him rest where he was, in the County portion of the Masonic Cemetery in McMinnville, Oregon. There are no markers, no real signs of a cemetery, just over grown brush, weeds and trees.

He was born May 29, 1893, at Independence where he grew up and received his education, and where he received his baptism in the Baptist Church. Ball demonstrated a mechanical talent at an early age, and worked in garages and repaired automobiles and farm machinery during his youth. This interest was the basis of his career. Even after retierment he was sought after for problem solving. Ball operated the ferry between Independence and Oregon City.

He opened the first Chevrolet garage in St. Johns, the building of which still stands with the name "Weeks and Ball" across from the North Precinct police station.

In 1925 a "new" building was built and the "old" building was moved across the road. There has been considerable remodeling but the present Buell Grange Hall is part of the original structure building. Durning the summers, Sunday School was held there. There were also many basket and pie socials, parties and dances.
The initial School roster included the names Roy Ball and Winfred Ball.

The following was a Christmas card, written by Tenny, when she was 8 years old. She was at boarding school, in Pendelton. Her parents had a Wheat farm in Umatilla County, and the only close school, was in Pendelton.

Dear Papa;
The joyous bell of christmas shall soon send forth their old and sweet melodies to announce the approach of the little Babe of Bethelhem and filling all hearts with joy and praise. They fill mine with joy when I think I can once again send my best wishes to my loved ones at home. I shall thank the little infant for having given me my dear Papa and Mamma to take care of me. And in return for your loving care I will be a obedient child. And now wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and begging the infant Jesus to bless you.

I remain your loving daughter,
Tenny Chaney


Little is known about Tenny & Winfred's first child. Found, were a couple post cards from her mother, all dated 1914, but were not able to make out the month, stating Tenny was doing as well as could be expected, she has plenty of milk. The family did not speak a lot about the child, I am not sure if it was male or female, however, the child did live for a few weeks, but was not able to keep anything down and "failed to thrive" and died. At this time, we have not been able to locate the grave site.

Tenny was a member of the Masonic Order of the Eastern Star.

In the latter years before her death, Tenny suffered from Multiple Sucroses, and was in a great deal of pain requiring her to be on heavy pain medication. In the early morning hours of February 9, 1952 she aspirated, when Winfred woke and found her, she was rushed to the hospital, but was not able to be revived.

General Notes:
Frank spend a majority of his working life working in the lumber industry at lumber mills owned by Mr. Ed Albertsen also working on farms owned by Mr. Ed Albertsen in the Silver Lake, Summer Lake area of central Oregon.

He loved to be outside, hunting & fishing. He loved taking his grandchildren along on his hunting and fishing trips.

Remembrances of Frank (called "PaPa") by George Davidson:
Some earliest memory was about 1949 while we lived at the old Schriber (not sure of spelling) house- across from Ed Albertsen's lumber mill..PaPa had skinned a raccoon and gave me the hide and tail to make a raccoon hat just like Davy Crockett!
PaPa showed me how to nail the skin to a board/stretched out with I think was a powder and salt to cure...we made a great hat..however, I remember it sure had an awful smell!! I would at times go across the road to the lumber mill when PaPa was working and hope he would spend a whole five cents and buy me a coke from the brand new coke machine at the mill office.
PaPa loved to hunt and fish..I think he had me carrying a rifle and fishing pole just as soon as I was able to walk. He would often pick me up after school or early evenings on Fri or Sat night to go raccoon hunting with his coon dogs (usually two dogs). We would all pile in his Nash Rambler auto and head out to find the pesky raccoons that were getting into a farmers chicken pens etc...PaPa had taught me to tell when the dogs were just trailing a raccoon and also to tell when they had the raccoon treed just by the type of barking of the dogs. One time..PaPa had me shoot the raccoon out of the tree with the old 4-10 shotgun for the first time...I don't remember if I hit the raccoon or not..but I sure hit my butt on the ground as the shotgun had a kick. Sometimes the dogs would catch a skunk..and wow the dogs would smell bad..and after putting the dogs in the car..Grandma Lola would have a fit..and take the car keys away from PaPa until he cleaned up the car and get that awful skunk smell out of the car. (He use a lot of tomato juice in cleaning the dogs up).
At the beginning of deer season each year...I would have to get an Ok from the school teacher to be absent for a week as PaPa and Grandma LoLa would take me along and sometimes it would be a multi family trip..to central Oregon and set up camp. We had our tents, cook stoves, and plenty of food. Grandma Lola would always cook up a feast for everyone. I remember the cold and at times icy nights but warm sunny afternoons. It was great to have someone actually kill their deer and have PaPa show me how to dress it out, hang it up to cure a few days..and later skin it before we would cut it up for packing in the freezer for venison steaks and best of all, smoked venison jerky. Grandma Lola would always make me complete any reading or homework that had been assigned by my school teacher.
Fishing was about the same as deer hunting, we made many trips just the two of us and at times family camping for a several day fishing trip. PaPa's favorite fishing was at the central Oregon lakes...he would find his favorite site and set anchor and still fish. At times if we had a motor on the boat..we would troll for fish.
PaPa loved his Olympia Beer...it was a must, all the time..and he would save the empty bottles until there was an awful collection at which time he would call me over to visit and we would pack them up and redeem them for 1 cent apiece. Usually the big cash would end up in my pockets for soda pop or comic books.
Mom tells me that when I was still young and still getting milk from a baby bottle once and a while..usually while on a trip..after watching PaPa toss his empty Olympia beer bottle out the car window...I surprised all by doing the same with my milk bottle.
I think PaPa's favorite time of the year was Christmas..when he would have all the grand kids over for a Christmas meal and see us all open our packages.
PaPa and Grandma was one of the first in our family to own a T.V. We would love to visit so we could watch Lassie or Walt Disney . PaPa loved boxing..and he would sit and watch boxing for hours and eat grapes, cheese and of course drink his favorite beverage "Oly".
About 1959-1960 PaPa and Lola would work for Uncle Ed Albertson-for the summer months and set irrigation pipes on Alfalfa farms near Silver Lake and Summer Lake, Oregon. PaPa and I would set the pipes (40 foot lengths) twice a day every day. We lived in a small house with a bunk house near by for myself. Grandma Lola would do the cooking to feed us. In our spare time, we would listen to the radio and often just walk the desert looking for Indian Arrow Heads. We found many and it was great to find a "chipping ground area" where the Indians would find natural up cropping of obsidian (volcanic glass usually black) that they would use to make their arrow heads. These areas would yield many broken arrow heads but often some great whole arrow heads. I had a collection of many sizes, arrow heads, hide scrapers, spearheads etc...that I donated to the Philomath Museum. An old timer in the area showed me how the Indians used a deer antler to chip away the stone and make the arrow heads..I had fun making them but the splinters of obsidian glass was sharp and would cut your fingers.
Spending the summer months out in the desert was a real experience..very quiet and different. At night the stars were so bright you could almost see to walk..the wildlife was unreal..I never realized how much there was in the desert..the many kinds of birds, coyotes, deer, and even a big old black bear. One day PaPa decided he wanted antelope meat..so he shot one..it was not in season so we had to dress it out, skin it, and cut it up in a hurry. PaPa was so afraid the game warden would find out..we had a freezer full and ate it seems three times a day to get rid of the evidence! We usually would get two cuttings of hay from the fields a summer. It would not be unusual to find the sprinklers would have a sheet of ice all over in the mornings..and it would be 85-90 degrees in the afternoon.
I don't remember now how much Uncle Ed paid me, but it was enough to buy my school cloths and supplies each year. Uncle Ed had loaned me $50 one school year before, and I found out after my first paycheck that summer, the $50 was taken out of my pay..he never forgot! I had used the $50 to buy a transistor radio that I carried with me while working- to listen to baseball games and try to keep up with what was going on in the world while we were living out in the middle of the Oregon Desert. We had an old Alice Chalmers Tractor (hand crank to start) that we used to move large loads of pipe before they cut the hay.

Memories of Wren, Oregon-by The Wren Historical Society, Wren, Oregon Nov 1998 (Nellie Stark,Karen Kennedy, Pat Brown, Elmer Taylor, Dean Sartain, & Jim Hoyt:
Wildlife section and reference to: Frank Bottger:
Another time, Frank Bottger had shot a deer illegally. He was about to store the deer in the shed when he heard a vehicle approaching. It was the game warden! Frank panicked. He told his wife to get in bed and he put the deer carcass in bed with her! When he opened the door, he told the game warden that his wife was in bed, sick, but he was welcome to come in!
The game warden decided to go on his way and not disturb a poor sick woman!
Old Frank liked to drink a bit. He and Pat Brown were out hunting one time and they spotted a couple of raccoons in a tree. Now Frank liked raccoon. He put on his rain coat and slipped gingerly into the blackberry bushes under the tree. He told old Pat to shoot the branch out from under the coon, which Pat promptly did. But, unexpectedly, the coons fell directly on top of Frank in the berry bushes and began to fight and claw. As Frank tried to get away from the two little varmints, there was enough clawing, shouting and curses to still echo around these hills today!
Another time his son, John Bottger came into Wren with a couple of raccoons
on leashes. Some dogs came to investigate and the coons climbed up a cut-off phone pole, just out of reach. The baying and howling was ear-rending as the dogs tried to get at the coons. At one time, coon hunting with dogs was permitted in the area, but this is no longer legal.

The following note collected from Benton County,Oregon,Web Site ..Interviews..Mr. and Mrs. Jasper HAMAR June,1938

Jasper HAMAR and his wife were interviewed at the home in the village of Summit, where they are living in retirement. They had little information of early days, but their recollections seemed to be dependable.
My grandfather, Oliver HAMAR, came west by railroad to San Francisco and then north to Oregon. He took a homestead on upper Marys River, on the east fork above where BOTTGER now lives. At that time Preacher BAUGHMAN lived on BOTTGER'S place and Dr. OWENS lived on the adjoining place. Unlike the country nearer to Summit there was timber there except on the small meadows of the river bottoms.
My mother was Mary McLAUGHLIN. Her children were Rhoda, Julia (Mrs. FRANTZ), Amelia (Mrs. STONE), Emma (Mrs. McGALLEY), David, Newton, myself, Andrew, and Esther (Mrs. CARLSON, Mrs. CUSICK). I was born in 1873.
I had all my schooling in the Summit schoolhouse, which was then about a mile north of the present location. I went only part of two terms. My teachers were Nettie PITTMAN and Etta WOOD. I spent most of my time as a boy working on the ranch. After I was fifteen I used to work in harvest time in Kings Valley. That was the only cash work to be had, for lumbering had not yet developed. One of the few mills in the country was at Hoskins. This mill cut much of the timber for the first building of the State College plant at Corvallis. They used to deliver lumber by wagon as far away as Independence.
Most of Kings Valley then raised grain and hay. The yields were good but the methods of farming were bad. The fields came to be very foul with weeds and especially with wild oats. The old horse power thrashing machines were in use then. I remember MORGAN SAVAGE, one of the first settlers on the upper Mary's River, had an old tread mill thrasher. The motive power was furnished by a team on a treadmill.
The dances and parties meant a great deal to us then, for there was little chance for the young people to meet and enjoy themselves. Baseball was not known and our only outdoor sports were hunting and fishing. Trout were plentiful in the river then, many of them being twelve to fourteen inches long.
The elk were gone when we came but deer were still plentiful. The country was simply lousy with panthers and bob cats. Raccoons and bears were common and the beaver had their dams all along the streams. Matthew KELLY, one of the very first settlers, spent most of his time trapping. His pal, Joe WOOD, had a ranch. Neither of the two were ever married and they left no heirs. They were buried in the May's, now called the Strouts', burying ground about a mile west of Summit.
When I was about twenty-eight I got the notion to homestead a quarter section of timber. Timber land was open to homestead entry then. I went up to Bend in the pine country but found all the desirable timber located. The same things was true at Siletz. Finally I bought a relinquishment from a man on the East Fork of Marys River. I proved up after seven years. We always took the full time allowed to make final proof, for as soon as the Government gave us a patent we had to begin paying taxes on the land, I paid taxes for twenty years but finally sold the place for ten thousand dollars.
I have been a timber faller most of my life, and have seen the logging business develop and adopt new methods. We used oxen at first to get the logs out of the woods, because they could get around on the brushy hillsides better. We did not have to spend so much time and effort cutting the brush as if we had used horses. This clearing away of the brush is what we called 'swamping'. Later horses came into use more, for they are faster. Dave SIMPSON and his brother used the first donkey engine ever seen in this vicinity. PRESCOTT and Van NESS logged off the timber on MORGAN SAVAGE'S place to be used in the construction of the Yaquina railroad. SAVAGE had one of the few tracts of old growth fir left in the upper Marys River country. Most of the timber had been destroyed in the big burn of 1840.
MORGAN SAVAGE ran a blacksmith shop. He used to keep a stallion for public service. He bought a MORGAN horse, the first pure bred horse ever brought to this section. There were no purebred cattle until much later.
In my younger days I spent most of twenty years away from here, working the Willamette Valley, in eastern Oregon, and once as far north as Seattle. In 1907 I married LEONA PARKER at Brownsville We have one son, Oliver Perl, who lives here with us.
