Gustave WINKLER
Interview taken from Benton County Records

July 8, 1938

Mr. WINKLER was interviewed at his home at Nashville Station, where he is living next door to his daughter, Mrs. GRUSING. Although he was not one of the very early settlers he had interesting information of early times and conditions.

(Said Mr. WINKLER:) I was born in Saxony in 1860. I came to Oregon in 1888. A friend, John BOTTGER, had come before me and I came direct to where he lived on the east fork of Marys River. There I took a homestead, joining BOTTGER's and raised cattle. My land lay back from the stream and was hilly. The country was well settled then but it is going back to the wild now. In the early days we worked hard but we never worried about making a living. There were deer in the woods, fish in the streams, and milk from our cows. On the Yaquina one day I caught 84 trout from two holes, and then quit fishing.

I was the first dairyman on the Upper Marys River, and the first to introduce the raising of Kale there. The neighbors were inclined to be skeptical and to make fun of the new plant. They were convinced when they saw the growth it made. I always tried to take advantage of what the State College could tell me.

My wife was Anna LOHMAN. Our children are Walter, who is a railroad man at Grants Pass; Max, a truck driver in Portland; and Elfreida (GRUSING).

One of our neighbors on Marys River was an Englishman named COOTE. He was not related to that other Englishman who was one of the early professors of Agriculture at the State College in Corvallis. When this man learned that my mother had unmarried sisters in Germany he furnished money to pay the passages of Grandmother LOHMANN and her two daughters. He married one of them and found a husband for the other. They are all buried in the cemetery at Summit and I am the only one left.

Great Gran'Pa John Bottger told his family (as told to me by my father, John A. Bottger) that he worked for a newspaper, as a child in Germany, delivering newspapers with the family dog who pulled a cart. At some point, his mother, Amelia, became ill, and the doctor told the family, she must have fresh meat in order to survive. Great Gran'pa John then had to pull the newspaper cart himself. Also, he related in conversations with his family that his parents (apparently at least middle-class)owned a home in town as well as property (maybe 1/2 hector? or so) out of town on which they raised produce. Another time, he mentioned he had also apprenticed in a bakery before coming to America.

Obit posting with mention of Ed Albertsen:
Corvallis Gazette Times, 29 Apr 2010
Sept. 30, 1918 \emdash April 27, 2010
Joseph T. Lamberty of Philomath passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 27, at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, with his family by his side. He was 91.
He was born Sept. 30, 1918, to Frank and Agnes Lamberty, and raised on the family farm in Hixson, Wis. Joe served in the U.S. Navy during World War II on the U.S.S. Vincennes, where he earned rank as a Chief Petty Officer. After his military service, he moved to the Albany area, where he worked for Mac Slate Construction, and married Hazel Dickinson.
In the early 1950s, he started his own logging company with a crosscut handsaw, an Army surplus truck that was converted to a short-logger, and a borrowed John Deere tractor. In 1955, Joe moved the family to Philomath; he continued to log, working for Ed Albertson, a local mill owner.
In 1958, Joe started JTL Rock Products, developing the rock pit at the top of Wren Hill. Using a portable rock crusher, he crushed rock around the area to build logging roads. He then went into a partnership, creating Chamber & Lamberty Inc., which he would later sell out to his partner. He then spent time working for Rex Clemens, building logging roads.
With Joe's knowledge of rock crushing, he decided to start up a new rock-crushing business; this would be known as Hard Rock Quarry. After retiring, he continued to keep himself busy by maintaining logging roads and building gates for Starker Forests. Well known for his mechanical savvy, Joe could often be found in his shop, turning a wrench, machining a part, or welding a bead for local truckers' and loggers' equipment.
Joe always had an interest in flying; in the early 1960s, he bought himself a Piper Tri-Pacer and became a pilot.
Joe enjoyed spending time with his family, hunting and restoring his Twin Cities farm tractor. He was always willing to put aside his projects to help out a buddy.
Joe is survived by his son, Gordon (Charlie) Lamberty, and his wife, Colene, of Philomath; daughter, Sally Hockema, and her husband, Fred, of Philomath; daughter, Sheri Grimm, and her husband, Rocky, of Alsea; sister, Tilly Rosenbaum, of Racine, Wis.; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and even a few great-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings; wife, Hazel; and son Dwight Lamberty.
Men like Joe are few; he will truly be missed by friends and family.
A funeral service will take place at 11 a.m. Friday, at College United Methodist Church in Philomath.
Private interment will take place at Willamette National Cemetery at a later date.
Arrangements are by McHenry Funeral Home.

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.
