This story describes more of my long genealogical search for information on the background and childhood family of my great-grandfather James Plunkett (1836-1911). The Oregon Plunkett family will be forever indebted to a stranger who volunteered at the National Archives Branch in San Bruno, California. Thank you, Bill Wiengartner, for turning up the first real clue by finding the Plunkett family in Van Buren County, Iowa in the 1850 census. I also wish to thank two ladies in Utah who were early researchers on the Plunkett family. They spent twenty years trying to find out "what happened to James Plunkett," whom they thought was lost from their part of the family. Challas Adams Snarr is a descendant of James Plunkett's sister Mary Melinda Plunkett Adams, and Alice Adams is not related to the Plunketts, yet she devoted many hours to helping with the search. (Meanwhile, here in Oregon I was searching for James Plunkett's family and background.) The efforts of these people made it eventually possible to reunite the Utah and Oregon branches of this family. It is my pleasure to share this story with those who may find it of interest. This is the story of the Oregon Plunkett Family's connection with the Mormons. It tells the little-known story of James Plunkett's (1836 - 1911) childhood and family of origin. The story is based on notes I made from reading many different historical sources. As far as we know, James Plunkett left his connection to the Mormons behind him when he joined the Army in California and was sent up to Ft. Hoskins, Oregon during the Civil War. This is just another part of our family's rich heritage. Patricia Plunkett (Bearden) Holler Posted by King Folk.


JAMES PLUNKETT
1836-1911
Nauvoo, Illinois
My paternal great-grandfather, James Plunkett, was born 11 February 1836 near Brockville, Leeds, Upper Canada (now the province of Ontario.) He was the third child of seven born to Robert Plunkett and his wife Sarah. We do not know what Sarah's family name was--some say Kennedy, some say Canada, Kanada or perhaps Cade.
Both parents were from Ireland, immigrants to Canada about 1830. They were Protestants from near Newtownards, County Down, in what is now British-ruled Northern Ireland. People of Presbyterian persuasion dominated both County Down and the part of Leeds County, Ontario, where they settled, so perhaps they also attended that church.
As far as we know, the Plunketts did not own land in Ontario. There they became friends with Arza Adams, a baptized early member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or the Mormons. Adams converted the Plunkett family, and baptized James' father at Brockville on 23 March 1840. This was only ten years after Joseph Smith established the LDS Church in 1830.
In the spring of 1842 the Plunketts and other Mormon families left Canada for Nauvoo, now part of Hancock County, Illinois. LDS Church records show members of the family who arrived there were parents Robert and Sarah, with children under eight years old: James, Eleanor, Isaac and Robert Jr. The oldest son, William, was baptized into the LDS church at Nauvoo in May 1842. Daughters Mary Melinda and Ellen were also with the family.
Thousands of other Mormon converts poured into the city from the east and from Canada and the British Isles.
Nauvoo was on the Mississippi River, across from Keokuk in the southeast corner of Iowa. The river bank rises gently there to a point high up on the slope. One standing up on that hill can see the river cutting a great silver semicircle below.
In 1839, the Mormons purchased a 20,000-acre tract for $2.00 per acre, to be repaid in 20 equal installments with no interest. It lay between the Mississippi and DesMoines Rivers in the state of Illinois. Woods covered the higher parts of the land, with swamps in the lowlands.
Joseph Smith named his city Nauvoo, which in Hebrew means "a beautiful plantation." Nauvoo was headquarters of the LDS church from 1840 until 1846, when Brigham Young led the Mormons west to the Salt Lake valley in Utah.
The winter of 1839-40 brought an epidemic of "ague"--perhaps either typhoid or malaria. There were many deaths.
The Mormons drained the river swamps for the site of their city, and laid the city out in neat squares, with great planning and forethought. Streets ran directly north and south, east and west. Certain sections of the city were for public buildings and others for residential areas. Homes were a uniform distance from the street, and they planted the lots with lawns and shrubs. This was the beginning of city planning and "zoning." Neatly fenced farms spread out from the city in three directions.
Joseph Smith drew up an unusual city charter, creating a near city-state, independent of all other governmental agencies in Illinois. The only thing that could limit the powers of this city was for the state legislature to repeal the charter. No other city in America ever had such complete control of its own affairs. The legislature approved the charter in December 1840. The Mormons invited people of all religious denominations to live in Nauvoo.
The Charter gave the City Council power to "make, ordain, establish and execute all such ordinances not repugnant to the Constitution of the United States of or this State." This was an ingenious wording which Smith later interpreted in the widest possible sense. They rushed the Charter through the Illinois legislature. It passed without ever being read except by title, in exchange for promises of Mormon favor to the leaders of both the Democratic and Whig political parties. Previously, Smith made it clear that his people would join neither party, but would hold themselves free to vote according to services rendered.
Smith thought the ideal government was a theocracy, a government by a prophet specially chosen to administer the laws of God.
Smith's charter provided for a university and called for the organization of militia called the Nauvoo Legion.
A Nauvoo city ordinance forbid anyone to set up a business without a license from the City Council, which Joseph Smith dominated. But this law caused so much resentment that they repealed it in 1842.
There were no saloons in Nauvoo. If a man wanted to drink, he had to buy his whiskey from a shop specially licensed by the Mayor, and take it home with him. Later Smith allowed construction of a brewery and allowed it to advertise in the Nauvoo Neighbor newspaper. But Smith controlled the dispensing of liquor and preached against grog shops.
For a while, the city did have a brothel, just one square away from the temple. It used a grocery store as a front. In 1842 the City Council termed it a nuisance and some soldiers from the Legion tipped it over backwards into a gully, where it crashed to the bottom By 1840, Nauvoo had 250 homes, with many more under construction. The average price of a city lot in Nauvoo was $500. Smith set aside the square at the very summit of the city for a temple. The Mormons cut the timber, drained the swamps, and then laid the cornerstone for the immense temple.
The site of the great Temple of God became the real center of the city. Temple construction began in 1841, on the highest land in the city. Even its unfinished walls were visible from the flat surrounding countryside. Work on the temple continued every day except Sundays and holidays, although at times construction stopped temporarily for lack of funds.
Laborers and skilled craftsmen who lacked employment worked on the temple. Although their pay was uncertain and consisted of donated food and clothing, work on the huge structure was always a labor of love. All Nauvoo men were expected to spend each tenth day working there, or else to give the equivalent in goods or money. My great-great grandfather was a stone mason, and he helped to build the temple. My great-grandfather and his brothers were too young to be much help in construction work, but oral family history says that they carried water for the laborers and did other chores.
The citizens of Nauvoo built for Smith and made unbelievable sacrifices to carry out his orders. They did this not only because they were convinced he was God's prophet, but also because they loved Joseph Smith as a man.
Smith aimed to educate all of his people, young and old, so Nauvoo had an educational system that included all ages from elementary to university classes. Smith made learning a Mormon ideal.
Nauvoo bordered the river and had farmlands on three sides. The farmers used the most advanced agricultural knowledge of the day. But the farms were unusual, for no one lived on the farmland. Everyone lived in the city, commuting to the rural areas to work during the day. Farmers who had no money to buy land could raise crops on a huge community farm just outside the city.
Nauvoo was above some river rapids that prevented the largest steamboats from going that far north. Smith planned to remedy this problem by building a wing dam in the Mississippi River. That would make an ideal harbor and also furnish water power for Nauvoo's industry. Until the dam could be constructed, Smith decided to have a Mormon port in Warren, Illinois, which he connected to Nauvoo by rail.
Smith continually urged his city toward industrialization. By 1842, Nauvoo had two big steam sawmills, a steam flour mill, a tool factory, and a foundry. The Mormons had plans for a chinaware factory, to be manned by English converts from the Staffordshire potteries.
As early as May 1842, the New York Herald reported the rumor that men in Nauvoo had a "community of wives," as the practice of polygamy or plural marriage became more common among the Mormons. My Mormon cousins say that the Plunketts did not practice polygamy, and did not believe in it. The bulk of the Mormon colony knew little or nothing about polygamy. The majority accepted the word of church leaders that the system had disappeared.
At its peak the city's population rivaled that of the young city of Chicago. In 1842 the New York Herald reported that the city had a population of 10,000, and 30,000 beyond the city limits. Also, the Legion had "2000 pretty well disciplined" troops.
Then, Nauvoo had an unmistakably military atmosphere. The Legion drilled regularly, with smartly-uniformed officers. Every able-bodied male between 18 and 45 was compelled to join, and heavy fines were imposed for failure to appear at parade. The Legion was organized as a corps of riflemen, while other units in other cities in Illinois were armed mostly with swords and muskets.
Joseph Smith wore a grand uniform: a blue coat with lots of gold braid, buff trousers, high military boots, and a hat with ostrich feathers. He asked the governor for, and received, the commission of Lt. General. Smith came to prefer the title "General" even over that of "President." He carried a sword on his hip, and two big horse-pistols. He loved parades and pomp and splendor, so he called out the Legion on every possible occasion, marching at its head on his magnificent black stallion named Charlie.
In 1840 Joseph Smith feared extradition to Missouri, where he was a fugitive from justice for earlier troubles. He appointed a bodyguard of 12 men, his toughest fighters and most devoted friends. The bodyguards dressed in white uniforms, and made a pretty sight marching and wheeling about the uniformed figure of their chief in Legion parades.
Mary Melinda Plunkett, my great-grandfather's older sister, told her children that she was well acquainted with the Prophet Joseph Smith and his wife Emma. The Smiths always rode by horseback to church on Sundays. Mary remembered waiting with other older children outside the meeting house to watch them come riding up on their beautiful horses.
Military spirit infected all the young boys in Nauvoo, and Smith organized them into a military corps of their own. Between 400 and 600 boys, probably including the Plunkett boys, paraded and drilled with as much zest as their fathers.
Once the boys' army decided to invade Nauvoo. The Legion, prepared to give the boys a good scare, lined up to meet them. But the men didn't know that the boys had raided their mothers' kitchens for pots and pans. When the boys charged out of the woods, beating on kettles and shouting, the Legion's horses panicked and refused to charge. Finally, Smith spurred Charlie forward, squarely into the group of oncoming boys. They scattered, and the Prophet became the hero of the day for repelling the "invasion."
Life in Nauvoo had its fun times as well. Tent theaters visited the city, and there were band concerts and lectures. Only mesmerists and magicians were denied an audience. Joseph Smith held elegant cotillion parties in his big home, called the Mansion House. It was a large home, transformed into a hotel. The Smith family lived in spacious quarters upstairs, while the huge living room below became a lobby and public dining hall.
Hundreds of tourists came to Nauvoo. Steamboats regularly stopped to discharge visitors, who were ceremoniously conducted on a tour of the city. The visitors were shown several mummies kept on display there in the Nauvoo museum, and the new temple.
Nauvoo became a great social center for communities up and down that part of the Mississippi River. Citizens held great celebrations on Independence Day and other holidays, and excursion boats came from as far away as St. Louis to bring people to the festivities. The city was beautiful, and known for the hospitality of its people.
In 1844, at Nauvoo, the last Plunkett child was born. They named the baby Joseph, after church leader Joseph Smith. He lived less than a year, dying at Nauvoo in late June 1845 from inflammation of the brain.
The Mormons believed in cooperation instead of competition. The success of their settlement drew the attention of surrounding areas, and brought fears that the Mormons would soon overtake the state of Illinois. Land speculators were common at the time, but they could not get a toe-hold in Nauvoo, because the church bought large tracts of land and then resold it to the people at non-profit prices.
Nauvoo was an interesting place for the Plunkett children to live. From the historical accounts of the city, it sounds like there was always something going on.
This pleasant life came to a halt in June 1844, when Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum were killed by gunfire while lodged in the county jail at nearby Carthage, Illinois. Later, in early 1846 some 30,000 Mormons fled the city under leadership of Brigham Young, eventually making their well-known exodus to Utah. Young requested the Plunketts to stay for a time in Van Buren County, Iowa, to help grow crops to feed the thousands of refugees. The Plunkett family were among the last to arrive in Utah, remaining in Iowa until 1852.
There are only a few homes left today in Nauvoo. The Mormons never completed their Nauvoo temple, and later its unfinished walls were destroyed by fire.
The Mormons now operate Nauvoo as a National Historic Landmark.
I visited Nauvoo twice during the 1970's, arriving via the steamboat
Delta Queen. I was only there because the boat stopped there, and it was only of mild historical interest to me, as then I knew nothing about the Plunkett connection to the Mormons. I didn't dream that my own ancestors lived there during the height of the city's glory. It wasn't until the late 1980's that I discovered this part of my heritage. Since then I have read many books about the subject. Now, a visit to Nauvoo would be a fascinating experience.
My father remembered James Plunkett saying that he did not want his family to know anything about the background that he left behind him when he joined the Army in California and was sent to Oregon during the Civil War. And for many more years, we didn't know. Now, we have identified this part of our heritage. And, as far as we know, James Plunkett left any connection with the Mormons behind when the U. S. Army sent him to Oregon.

General Notes:
LUCIUS PLUNKETT NOTE
As told to Patricia Plunkett Bearden Holler by Earle Greig at Kings Valley reunion, June 2000:
My grandfather Lucius Plunkett was a boyhood friend of Lincoln Greig, Earle's father. Earle told this story, as related to him by his father:
The boys were at school and they were having a spelling bee. The teacher gave each person in the line a word to spell, and if they spelled their word correctly, they advanced to the head of the line.
The teacher gave Lucius Plunkett the world "squirrel" to spell. Lucius replied like this:
"Squee - I - R - L, head I go!"
History does not record the teacher's response, but I am delighted to have this little story about my grandfather, whom I never got to meet.

General Notes: Ancestry.com posting:
My father, Herman B. Plunkett, told the story about his brother Dell Plunkett--that Dell joined the U.S. Marines and ended up in Hawaii Territory. There, he met Enis Magpiong and they married. They had 8 children, four boys and four girls. Uncle Dell was a foreman on a sugar plantation in Hawaii. He lived the rest of his life there.
Uncle Dell was separated from his Oregon Plunkett family for many years--probably nearly 40 years. In about 1957, Carl Plunkett, another brother of Dell's and Herman's, was working at a mill in Eugene, Oregon. Carl's boss was going to Hawaii for vacation, so Carl asked him to look in the phone book and see if there was a Dell Plunkett listed in Hawaii. Sure enough, there was. Carl must have called Dell, and they had a joyous reunion by phone. The story that we heard was that Uncle Dell was afraid to come back to Oregon for fear that his multi-racial family would not be accepted by the Oregon Plunketts. (Not true at all! When we finally got to meet them, we all loved each other.)
In due time Carl and his wife Alta Plunkett made a trip to Hawaii, where they were very warmly welcomed by the Hawaiian branch of the family. Uncle Carl and Aunt Alta brought back many pictures of our Hawaiian cousins, and we were thrilled and excited that the family members were getting reunited.
Later Dell's son Ben & his wife Clara & the kids came to Oregon, where we had a Plunkett reunion so we could all meet each other. I was about 16 years old at the time, but I recall that there was a bittersweet feeling to the reunion--the joy that we were finally together, but also sadness for all the wasted years when we were apart.
Through the years since, various family members have maintained connection and communication with one another.

Dell married Enis Magpong, daughter of Magpong and Segundo Magpong, in , , Hawaii Territory, United States.

General Notes: WPA Historical Records
Interview -- Mrs. Bertha THOMPSON
June 1938

Mrs. THOMPSON was interviewed at the THOMPSON home at Blodgett. Here she lives with her husband and son who conduct the general store and post office. Mrs. Thompson is well preserved physically and is in her prime mentally. Her reminiscences are dependable.

My father, James PLUNKETT, was born in 1837 and came to California in 1839. I do not have any information as to his family. Father came to Fort Hoskins with the Fourth California Volunteers. Her he found a wife, and when the regiment was disbanded and the fort discontinued in 1865 he remained in the Valley.

Father was the bass drummer in the drum corps at Fort Hoskins under Phil SHERIDAN. Charles FRANKS played the tenor drum and J.C. LOTTSENHEISER played the fife. Another man who chummed with them was Si COPELAND. After the company was disbanded the four men scattered and never met again for many years. Then twenty-five or thirty years later they all came back and played
together again. They were much in demand for celebrations and political rallies. I think I never heard finer music than they made.

My mother was a member of the KING clan which settled Kings Valley in 1846. The head of the clan was Nahum KING. The following dates were copied from the old King Bible.

Nahaum KING, born July 25,1783

Sarepta NORTON, born November 12, 1791

These two married May 9, 1807

Saretta KING, born March 18,1808

Luretia, born July 5, 1809

Dulaimy, born April 12,1811

John KING, born March 23, 1813

Hopestill, born February 7, 1815

Hannah, born November 30,1816

Stephen, born July 13,1818

Isaac, born November 23, 1819

Amos, born April 29,1822

Sarah, born July 25, 1823

James Russell, born June 22,1826

Lovisa, born March 2, 1828

Abigail, born June 22,1829

Lydia, born February 19,1831

Solomon, born February 26, 1833

Rhoda Ann, born April 17,1835


Dulaimy, Hannah and James died in childhood. Stephen died soon after reaching Oregon. He left a widow, and I believe a child or two. The older children never came west. Sarah was the wife of a man named HUFFMAN. When he and one of the children died not so long after they came west, Sarah went back to her old home and friends. Hopestill was my grandmother. Lydia married a man named
WILLIAMS and Rhoda a man named SOMERS. Lovisa was the wife of Roland CHAMBERS. Amos KING went to Portland and took a claim where Kings Heights are now. Isaac and Solomon became prominent in the development of the new country.

My mother's name was Ashna NORTON, daughter of Lucius NORTON and Hopestill KING. In 1864 she was married to my father while he was still a soldier at Ft. Hoskins. Detachments of the men were frequently stationed at the Siletz Reservation to restrain the Indians there. My parents were stationed at
the Reservation about six months. They had to pack their belongings back and forth of pack mules. While there the Indians plotted to wipe out the detachment. They were going to seize the guns while the men were at dinner. The brother of Frances HARNEY, Phil SHERIDAN's Indian housekeeper, warned the soldiers in time and the uprising was quickly quelled. Frances HARNEY, who is sometimes called Sheridans Sweethart, was a handsome Rogue River Indian about thirty years old. Mother would not talk much about her relations with Sheridan. Her moral ideals were offended by the matter. In later years I knew the woman well. We lived on the trail by which the Indians came from Siletz to the Willamette
Valley for hop picking and the like, and Frances and her folks would always stop to see mother. I visited the old woman about two weeks before she died in 1934, at the age of 105 or 106.

Mother was born in 1847 on the 8th of February. It was claimed that she was the first white child born in what is now Benton County, but there are others who make the same claim. Mother used to tell how she gave her parents a fright one time. She was afraid of Indians and when she saw an old Indian coming one
day she crawled under the bed to hide. There was a hole through the puncheon floor beneath the bed, left with the idea of secret escape in case of an Indian attack. Mother crawled through this hole and went to sleep under the cabin. When she was missed there was a great alarm and search before she was found.

Mother used to tell of a plot of ground, twenty feet or so square, that was fenced with a tight picket fence. In this were all tomatoes that came up volunteer year after year. They were raised for their beauty, just as they raised flowers, and were fenced securely away from the children because they were believed to be poison. When their first fruit trees were coming into bearing the children were not allowed to pick any fruit but might have what fell on the ground. Mother and her small brothers and sisters would rush out on awakening, dressed in their night gowns, for the first one up got first chance at the apples that fell during the night.

Grandfather NORTON's children were Isaac, Wiley, my mother, Malinda, Sarepta, Nathan and Lucius. Sarepta and Nathan were triplets. The third one did not live. Malinda and Sarepta married brothers of the Price family. My father's children were Lucius, Wiley, Frank, Edgar, myself, Sarah (BOTTGER), Garfield and Henry.

I was born in 1876 at Kings Valley. I went to school at Kings Valley school house. I remember especially my teachers, Lucy ALLEN who was related to the WATKINS of Philomath, and Jim CHAMBERS. Jim CHAMBERS was a fine man and a good teacher. He and his sister Margaret were children of Rowland CHAMBERS by his first wife.

Mother used to spin wool and make blankets and stockings for the family. As soon as I got to old enough it was my place to spin enough wool to make six blankets. That many each year kept up the supply. The thread for one blanket would be wound on a reel taking six feet to the round. When I began spinning at
the age of nine I could spin half a reel in a day. When I was sixteen or seventeen I could do two or more.
At first mother carded her own wool but when HORNING built a carding mill on Oak Creek near Corvallis she would buy her rolls for spinning there.

I spent two years at Oregon State College. There I studied household arts under Miss SNELL. Professors HORNER, BERCHTOLD, and BRISTOW were my teachers, too. After that I taught school six years, beginning at Eddyville, which was in Benton County then. In 1899 I married James Albert (Jack) THOMPSON. At the time I met him he was the partner of my brother-in-law, John BOTTGER. The two men were seining salmon on Columbia River and my sister was keeping house on their boat. She was not a very good cook then and she asked me to help her. I went and ended up by marrying the other partner.

From 1900 to 1909 my husband was a member of the life saving crew of the U.S.Coast Guard, stationed at Coos Bay. During the Exposition at Portland in 1905 he was a member of the detachment that gave daily exhibition drills on the lagoon at the Exposition grounds. When my husband was discharged from the
Coast Guard on account of physical disability he came to Blodgett and bought the store which we have conducted ever since.

Our children are Ruth (Johnson), John, Emma (HAWLEY), Frances(EWING), Minnie (HARMSON), and Stanley.

The greatest change I have seen in this country since I was a child is the change from dairying to lumbering.

General Notes:
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.

General Notes: E-Mail notes from Shaun Davis, July 2002:
I don't have a lot, but here is what I do have:

Martie Plunkett, born 22 Apr 1908 in Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon and died on 6 Feb, 1998 in Aberdeen, Brown County, South Dakota. She was buried in the Crandall Cemetery, Conde, Spink County, South Dakota (she died in St. Luke's Midland Regional Medical Center)
Martie married Virgil E. Dixon abt 1928. they divorced after having two boys. ( Virgil died on 8 May 1962 at the age of 66 in Lincoln County, Oregon): Wiliam "Bill" Dixon (who lives in Corvallis) and Art Dixon (who lives in Labanon, Oregon).
Martie then married Caryl Taylor on Mar 6, 1942 in Washington. ( Caryl was born on Feb 11, 1913) They were stationed at Ft. Stevens, Oregon then moved to Astoria, Oregon after he was discharged. They lived there until 1966, when they moved back to Conde, South Dakota. Caryl still lives there. (This by the way was when Lloyd and my mom broke up when he got her pregnant. Martie was the boss of their family and she up and moved them back to South Dakota because my mom told Lloyd that she would not marry him since he left her and starting dating another woman when he found out she was pregnant. He later came back to her and offered to marry her and she refused out of anger and hurt. She told him to either stay around and support me with out a relationship with her or to leave Oregon and don't come back and that he would have nothing to do with his kid. Martie made the decision for Lloyd and he did what she said and they moved back to South Dakota. My uncle and his friend that were buddies of Lloyd's told me that Lloyd had a drinking problem back then and ran from responsibility most of the time. After he moved to South Dakota he kicked the drinking and became a police officer so obviously he got himself somewhat turned around.)
That was probably more information than you needed, but...That is the story.
Lloyd is now retired from the force and runs a gun store in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He maried Rose and they had a son named Terry. They divorced when Terry was about 12.
I don't have any data on the Dixon boys.
I am Shaun Davis and I married Lisa Ford.
We have two girls, Heather and Hannah, ages 11 and 5. We make our home in Willamina, Oregon.
If you would like specifics let me know. I have one or two pictures of Martie and Caryl and about 3 or 4 of Lloyd.
I have Homer Dixon as passing away in Jan of 1985 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon according to the SSDeath Index. I don't have much on Berniece other than her being on the 1910 and 1920 Census as a daughter of Henry and Ada.
