The Family Of William & Charlotte (Tanner) OLNEY

 Benjamin T. and his wife Jane (SMITH) OLNEY settled and farmed at Fisher's Landing in Clark County from late 1852 until her death in 1857. They are noted in Clark County Pioneers: A Centennial Tribute but are not followed up in the sequel because the family left the county after Jane died. However, the five children gravitated around the family claim into the Twentieth Century, so let us follow them up.

 Ben's parents were William and Charlotte (TANNER) OLNEY. William (24 Feb. 1792 - 1853) was born at Gloucester, Rhode Island. He descended as follows from the original immigrants Thomas and Marie (Ashton) OLNEY of St. Albans, Essex, England and Providence, Rhode Island: William6 (Captain Stephen5, Stephen4, John3, Epenetus2, Thomas1.) As a young man he moved to Saratoga County, New York where he married Charlotte (17 Feb. 1795 - 2 Sep. 1845) at Greenfield (18 Feb. 1809.) Together they migrated west, following the Ohio River to the area of Davenport, Iowa, where they settled at Fairfield, Jefferson County. William was a farmer, carpenter, mason and construction contractor.

 Along the way William and Charlotte had twelve children. All twelve migrated from Iowa to the Oregon and Washington Territories[2] by 1860. Two became prominent public men and the rest made their own contributions to building up the territory. Most notable was Judge Cyrus OLNEY, a founding Associate Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court and large landowner[3] at Astoria. Nathan OLNEY, at Fort Dalles, was attorney, ferryman, Justice of the Peace, militia captain, sheriff and Indian Agent to the Wasco Tribe. Benjamin T. OLNEY, as remarked, settled for a time at what is now Fisher's Landing in Clark County, Washington, and was active in civic affairs. Orville was a rancher and farmer, a Lieutenant in the Oregon Cavalry, who lived variously at Fort Dalles, in California, and in the Willamette country. Byron, the youngest, worked in the family shipping company until the Civil War, during which he disappeared for some years before turning up in the Illinois Cavalry. Their sisters also migrated out the Oregon Trail with their husbands and families, some settling in the lower Puget Sound country.

 The Clark County land records have been the key to drawing this family together. The Oregon State Archives have provided the proof of many of the relationships. Mary Ellen Petrich of San Jose has placed a great deal of biographical information on the Internet and has been generous in correspondence; Laverne Edward Olney of Kingsport, TN, has provided many clues from the Census; Jerri McCoy of Olympia found the descendants of the elusive Julian; Diane Gardner, in 1997 Tillamook County GenWeb coordinator, came up with Ben's third marriage. Others have been generous with time and energy as well and will be found in the source notes at the end of the article. To all of them, thanks.

Notes for Benjamin Tanner OLNEY

 Ben was born in Warren County, Penna. (some sources say Conewango Twp.) His daughter Flora recorded his middle name as "Tanner," after his mother's family. Some records instead use the middle initial "F.," no doubt due to the similarity of the letters in script. Ben removed with his parents to Iowa, where he married Jane SMITH (1846). Succumbing to gold fever he went to California (1848) for a few months but soon returned. He then learnt bricklaying and masonry and worked in construction. We can guess he worked with his father.

 Ben and Jane set out from Council Bluffs, Iowa, about 1 May 1852 bound for Oregon in company with several close relatives. They endured the common hardships along the way, including a brush with cholera. They had a face-off with unarmed Indians who wanted four-year-old Flora. They were fortunate to lose none of their own brood although relatives in the train were not so lucky. By Flora's account they were in perilous state when they were rescued east of Fort Dalles by two of Ben's brothers[31]. Ben dated their arrival in the Territory as 10 September 1852 in the affidavit for his Vancouver Donation Land Claim (DLC.)

 Leaving the family at Fort Dalles to recuperate, Ben went on to Oregon City. From there he crossed the Columbia into Clark County and recorded the DLC (1 December 1852,) for Twp 1 N Range 2 E, sections 1, 2, 11 and 12 (319.98 acres instead of 640; nearly all of section 11 and part of 12 is the Columbia River.) The patent was issued 22 November 1865 as Nr. 42 but was not recorded by Clark County until 25 October 1877[32]. (That claim is now southeastern Cascade Park.) Ben went up to Fort Dalles the next spring and brought the family down.

 Ben was (1855) one of the witnesses to the DLC of Adam FISHER who took up the sections on Ben's northeast. (WT DLC, p. 11)

 Although he held no office in Clark County, Ben was active in local politics. The Oregonian Newspaper of 11 June 1853 reported: "...a meeting of the inhabitants of Clarke county was held at the saw-mill, above Fort Vancouver, on Saturday, May 28th, having for its object the devising some means of checking the trespass of British subjects on claims held by citizens. The meeting having been organized by appointing T. J. Fletcher, Esq., as chairman and Richard Covington as secretary, the objects were briefly stated by the chairman, and on motion, the following gentlemen, viz: Silas D. Maxon[33], R. Covington, Benj. Olney, W.F. Crate, and Levi Dodford were appointed a committee to draft resolutions, who, after retiring for a short time, reported the following:

 Resolved, That we are a law-abiding people, yet are unwilling to submit to British subjects claiming large tracts of land merely because they have cultivated small gardens thereon, whilst in the service of the Hudson Bay Company: they having given no notice of such claim until settlers claiming under the donation law have expended a large amount of time and money.

 Resolved, That we believe it has now become of public and political importance that the rights of the Hudson's Bay Company and of all other British subjects, should be purchased by the United States government, in accordance with the fourth article of the treaty with Great Britain." (Landerholm)

 Following Jane's death (March 1857), Ben left Clark County. In a letter written 7 September 1857 from Fort Yamhill, Oregon (now Grand Ronde) he said he had sold half the Clark County claim after 1 January 1857. (WT DLC, p. 184; Sheller) In fact, what Ben sold on 22 May 1857 was an undivided half interest in the claim, and he sold it to his sister-in-law, Sarah E. OLNEY of Astoria, wife of Judge Cyrus OLNEY. Somehow this translated to the "West 1/2 Benj Olney's Claim" (i.e. sections 2 and 11) which "Cyrus Olney and wife" conveyed 17 September 1862 to their brother Nathan, of Fort Dalles. Nathan in turn sold 14 December 1864 this portion to Charles S. IRBY[34]. Clearly, the remainder was apportioned in common to Ben's five children at his death, for on 1 November 1879 "Hiram J. and wife" mortgaged "Part of B. F. Olney's D.L.C." to M. V. B. STACY (note: "satisfied"), while on 3 May 1883 Silas T. and Kane OLNEY each conveyed to Flora OLNEY MASON a 1/5th interest in the "E 1/2 of B. T. Olney's DLC." This remainder is shown on the Clarke County Auditor's 1888 plat map as a DLC in the names of B. T. OLNEY and Flora OLNEY (MASON.) Curiously, an 1894 plat map displayed (2004) at the Clark County Surveyor's Office shows the entire claim intact as "B. T. Olney." The remainder of the DLC did not pass out of family hands until 1901. (Clark County land records)

 Ben seems to have lived at Grand Ronde about a year before moving up the new trail to Tillamook. Pioneer Warren VAUGHN has given us a picture of Ben's life at Tillamook. Ben was settled there on South Prairie in the spring of 1859, when he bought the Gull schooner of Tillamook from the estate of her deceased owner. Ben sailed her with produce to Astoria and Portland for several voyages, returning with food and supplies. Along the way he was apparently first to sight the wreck of the whaler Rambler on the Columbia Bar and assisted his neighbors in its salvage[35]. The settlers were greatly pleased with the trade. The Gull was their only practical link with the world, the trail to Fort Yamhill being impassable to cargo. (Winters)

 During 1858 Ben was actively seeking a new wife. We have Rhoda (QUICK) JOHNSON's account: "When I was a girl Judge Olney wanted to keep company with me. He was a lot older than I. He was a widower with seven children; so I didn't like the idea of marrying him... [he] didn't seem to have good luck in getting a girl to marry him, so he became disgusted and took two squaws, one of whom was middle-aged and the other just a young girl...." [36] (Tillamook Memories) Sheller places Ben at Fort Dalles, Wasco County, Oregon in January 1859 where he m. 2 _____, a Wasco woman. Ben didn't hold a grudge, for "On January 3, 1861," Rhoda relates, "Judge Olney performed the ceremony that united my husband and myself." Ben had been elected judge in May 1859 for a four-year term. His trade did not much interfere with justice, there being few settlers and little adjudication. His children may have been living with him in 1859-61.

 Gull was only about 30 tons burden. Ben and a friend (also from Clark County) O. S. THOMAS, along with several Tillamook settlers, wanted something bigger. They spent the winter of 1859-60 building the Brant schooner of about 50 tons, financed in part by selling Gull. Ben, relates Vaughn, "was a man of great energy and perseverance and it required a large amount of this to accomplish his undertaking... Her timbers were eight inches square and eight inches apart. She was almost solid timber in her bottom," which proved to her advantage later. Vaughn further notes, "She had a very fine bow and a beautiful run aft and a fine stern." Her maiden passage to Portland was made in two days. Ben made most of his voyages running lumber from Astoria to San Francisco. His Tillamook neighbors were disappointed. Eventually they persuaded him to call in at Tillamook from time to time, although he complained it was nowhere near as lucrative as the lumber run. He may also have fared out to the Sandwich (Hawaiian) Islands in this period because his brother Byron enlisted there at the outbreak of the Civil War. (Sheller) By April 1862 Ben had bought out his partner THOMAS and was sole owner and master of Brant. Trying to leave Tillamook Bay shorthanded, she went aground on a high tide and it took six weeks and all the local manpower to refloat her. She took no significant damage and did not leak at all.[37] (Winters)

 Ben's second wife died by 29 September 1861, when Mary (Olney) BROWN in Olympia, Wash. wrote their sister Almeda that she and sister Emily FRENCH were keeping Ben's five children. (Sheller) On 11 August 1863 Ben m. 3 Druscilla Jane WILLIS before D. D. BAYLEY, Ben's successor as county judge, at the Bayley home. She may have been a minor, for on 10 August Ben filed with the court her father's written consent to the marriage. No evidence has been seen of children of this marriage.

 Druscilla shipped aboard Brant as cook. During the summer of 1864, Ben's sons Julian and Silas shipped as hands, by Silas' account. Ben was working Brant out of Puget Sound, carrying military supplies to outposts and handling local freight. After delivering supplies to the fort at Quinalt, Ben put in to Gray's Harbor and sailed up the Chehalis River to Montesano. He was the first to bring a ship so far up the river. He was unfamiliar with the tides there, and by dawn the next day Brant was on her side, full of water. She was righted, once again undamaged. "We loaded with hides, tallow and farm products and made our way out without difficulty, and delivered the goods at Victoria," related Silas.

 In November 1864, Ben sailed empty with a crew of seven out of Port Townsend, Washington, bound for Victoria to load cargo for Honolulu. His sons were not aboard. On 4 November Brant capsized in the Straits of Juan de Fuca with the loss of all hands. The ship was salved and became a whaler. (Montesano Vidette 1913) Some say Benjamin Tanner OLNEY is buried at Olympia, Washington, but I have not found him in the indexes available on-line.

 Ben was born and lived for thirty-seven years a landsman, yet in middle age he took up the most difficult job at sea -- command of a ship -- and pursued it successfully for five years on the most difficult part of the American Pacific Coast. He repeatedly crossed the notorious Columbia Bar without mishap, worked up and down the treacherous waters of that coast, navigated more than once over two thousand miles to the Hawaiian Islands and back, all without the boyhood apprenticeship and specialized training most seamen received. Was his demise due to inexperience or was it just one of those untoward events any sailor can encounter?

 Notes for Jane SMITH

 She came from England say 1828, aged two, with her family. Jane married Ben OLNEY at the home of Coleman GRAVES in Jefferson County, Iowa. The family removed to Washington Territory by 1852 and farmed a four-section claim about seven miles up the Columbia from the Hudsons Bay Company post at Vancouver, Clarke County. "Poor mother with three children - oldest not yet 4 and the youngest 2 weeks old - was placed in a light two horse wagon to begin the trek of 3000 miles," daughter Flora wrote much later. Jane bore Ben five children who lived to adulthood, and possibly a sixth. An unnamed infant is cited in her husband's 1852 affidavit for a donation land claim at (now) Fisher's Landing, Vancouver, Washington.

 Among the first community actions of the new settlers was building a schoolhouse. Jane was schoolteacher, paid from tuition fees. "After the arrival of my third brother [Silas] Mother was too busy to teach, and only received a 3 months salary," Flora observed. (Petrich)

 In 1856 some Indians of Eastern Washington and Oregon attacked white settlements -- the Whitman Massacre began it -- and although the local tribes seemed peaceful, the families of the settlers were taken down to Astoria for safety. They stayed there for the summer, returning in the fall to Fisher's Landing. Enroute, she gave birth to her last child, Kane, ,,,, at Saint Helens, Oregon.

 Jane died on the family claim in 1857. Her burial place has not been located but may be one of the early undocumented burials at Fisher's Cemetery (16400 Old Evergreen Highway.)

 Children of Benjamin Tanner OLNEY and Jane SMITH were as follows:

 + 2 i Flora Emily2 OLNEY.

 + 3 ii Captain Hiram J.2 OLNEY.

 + 4 iii Julian N.2 OLNEY.

 + 5 iv Captain Silas Freeman2 OLNEY.

 + 6 v Captain Kane2 OLNEY.

 Notes for Druscilla Jane WILLIS

 Druscilla was a daughter of Sterling WILLIS who came out from Kentucky and took up a Donation Land Claim in Douglas Pct., Polk County, Oregon. She was likely born in Illinois as were the all the older children of Sterling's family. She is not found with them in the 1860 U. S. Census nor is she shown in Tillamook County. Perhaps she was staying with the William Mc. WILLIS shown in Hoquarton Prairie Pct., Tillamook County. She shipped as cook in her husband's trading schooner and perhaps was so employed before their marriage. That would explain why neither is enumerated. She was likely one of the seven hands aboard the Brant schooner who died when the ship capsized 4 November 1864 in the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

 

Generation 2

 2. Flora Emily2 OLNEY[38], [39], [40], [41], [42] (Benjamin Tanner1), born[43] 19 May 1848 in Fairfield, Jefferson, IA; died[44] 13 May 1934 in Montesano, Grays Harbor, WA; buried[45] 17 May 1934 in Wynooche, Montesano, Grays Harbor, WA. She married[46] on 7 Sep 1869 in Methodist, Oregon City, Clackamas, OR, (divorced 28 May 1885) Francis Baron MASON[47] , born[48], [49] 1842 in IL; died[50] 1933 in Leaburg, Lane, OR; buried[51] in Greenwood, Leaburg, Lane, OR.

 Notes for Flora Emily OLNEY

 Flora was a young girl when her family set out on the Oregon Trail but old enough to have a clear recollection of the trek, which she set down in writing later. The entire account has been published on the Internet in at least two places (see source notes.) The family eventually settled (1852) at Vancouver, Clark County, Oregon Territory (now in Washington State.)

 After her mother died (1857,) Flora and her siblings went to live with their aunt Charlotte Emily (OLNEY) FRENCH at Olympia, Washington. Flora later lived with her uncle and aunt, Cyrus and Sarah (NEELY) OLNEY, at Portland and Astoria and attended the Portland Academy. She became a schoolteacher and we can guess she taught at Astoria, based on her marriage record below.

 She had planned to go East and attend medical school to become a doctor, but instead agreed to marry Frank MASON. They were married in the Methodist Church at Oregon City before the Rev. Mr. J. F. DEVOSE "in the presence of Revd. C. W. TODD and James W. CHASE and others, witnesses." She is entered as "Flora E. Olney of the county of Clatsup and State of Oregon."

 They settled at Eugene, Lane County, Oregon where she taught school for a time. On 2 March 1874 they hosted the marriage of G. W. FARLOW (of Linn County) and Ellen WEGER. Friends of the couple were W. E. STRATTON, B. F. DAVIS and R. RUSH (who was surety.) The officiant was A. C. FAIRCHILD. By 1880 the Masons had two children and Flora was "keeping house" in Springfield, near Eugene. Since neither child is shown "at school," she may have been home schooling them. By 1885 the family was living in East Portland.

 Beginning 3 May 1883 Flora began to acquire sole ownership of the family DLC at Vancouver. That day her brothers Silas and Kane each deeded to her his one-fifth interest. She was recorded in 1888 as owner of half her father's original DLC on a plat map displayed at the Clark County (WA) Genealogical Society. In 1891 her niece Daisy deeded over Julian's share. The property was partitioned by court decree 15 May 1893, to provide Hiram's widow a saleable property. At that point the remainder was entirely in Flora's hands. She used it as collateral for several successive loans over the years, but after obtaining a quitclaim from her ex-husband 2 June 1898 began selling it off. Twenty acres went to E. P. HILL on 17 August that year. The final mortgage was paid off in November 1901 and Flora sold the remaining 105 acres on 5 December to H. W. ARNOLD.

 Frank had divorced Flora in 1885 at Oregon City, after which Flora perhaps returned to Vancouver for a time. She settled in Portland. "In the Portland directory where she lived for several years as an at-home nurse, she lists herself as a widow. She was listed in the Portland directory from 1898 till 1906. Her only living child, Ruth Mason Byles and Ruth's husband then insisted that Flora come and live closer to them in Grays Harbor Co. Washington." (Petrich)

 Her obituary (in the Montesano Vidette) says that she removed in 1907 to her daughter Ruth's in Montesano. However, on 11 May 1910, Flora was living at 419 South Pearl St., Centralia, Lewis County, Wash. She is listed by the U. S. Census as owner of the house and head of household, living with "partner" Nancy FRENCH[52]. Flora is shown as ae 60, divorced, two surviving children of three. She was then working at the local hospital as a training nurse, which implies considerable experience in her field. As in her previous census records, she stated she was born in Iowa, her father was born in New York and her mother in England. Centralia and Montesano are not far apart.

 At Montesano she was intellectually and socially active to the end. She was a member of the Presbyterian community, the Rebekahs, the D.A.R., W.C.T.U., Southwest Washington Pioneer Society and the Harvard Classics club. She "...continued to carry on a voluminous correspondence with friends and relatives in all parts of the world and to read omnivorously." (Petrich)

 Notes for Francis Baron MASON[53]

 His father was from Massachusetts, mother from Connecticut. They eventually settled at Springfield, Illinois. Frank enlisted (as Francis B. MASON) 6 August 1862 in Company C, 32nd Wisconsin Infantry and was discharged due to an eye injury 9 February 1863 with the rank of Corporal. He wrote daughter Alta from Vida (near Leaburg) Oregon 10 August 1901, "I enlisted Aug. 6, 1862 in "C" Co., 32d Wis. Vol. Inf., and was discharged in the [spring?] of '63. at Memphis, Tenn. Took part only in some slight skirmishes around Memphis, and down in Mississippi, but the picket duty at times was more trying than anything else."

 He was recorded as "of the County of Lane and State of Oregon" at his marriage to Flora OLNEY. Soon after the marriage he was working as a painter in the city of Eugene, Lane County, Oregon. By 1880 he had moved to nearby Springfield and was working as a printer.

 When he divorced Flora (1885) he retained custody of their son Clyde while she had custody of the two girls.

 The 1890 Oregon Civil War Veterans Census found him at Leaburg, Lane Co., a small community east of Eugene. No spouse is shown for him (although that is true for most enumerees.) Petrich notes that he was the district enumerator for that census. He was enumerated as a farmer aged 63 in the Blue River district (the same area) at the 1905 Oregon Military Census and again as a divorced bachelor farmer in April, 1910 at the U. S. Census.

 Children of Flora Emily OLNEY and Francis Baron MASON were as follows:

 7 i Clyde R.3 MASON , born[54], [55], [56] 30 Dec 1870 in Eugene, Lane, OR; died[57] 6 Aug 1906 in Leaburg, Lane, OR; buried in Greenwood, Leaburg, Lane, OR. Other events: Census[58] Springfield, Lane, OR (1880). Notes: Clyde remained with his father after the divorce. He does not seem to have married.

 8 ii Alta Celeste3 MASON[59], [60] , born[61], [62] Jul 1875 in Eugene, Lane, OR; died ________. Other events: Census[63] Springfield, Lane, OR (1880). Notes: She removed to Portland with her sister and mother after the divorce. She never married. She became private secretary to the president of the Portland division of American Can Company and was majordomo of his household. After retiring early, she traveled widely through the West, finally disappearing without trace near the Columbia Gorge during a motoring tour. Her last communication was a post card mailed from White Salmon, Washington.

 + 9 iii Ruth Auralia3 MASON.

 3. Captain Hiram J.2 OLNEY[64], [65], [66], [67], [68] (Benjamin Tanner1), born[69] 1849/50 in Fairfield, Jefferson, IA; died[70], [71] 1 Apr 1888 in Skagit, WA; buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA. He married[72] on 14 Jul 1875 in King County, WA Rose Gilmer MCLEAN[73], [74] , born[75] 1852 in ME; died 7 Apr 1934; buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA.

 Notes for Captain Hiram J. OLNEY

 On 10 October 1866, an Hiram J. OLNEY was issued title to the 27.89 acres of Lot 1 (the SE 1/4 of the NE 1/4) of Sec. 8, Twp 18 N Range 2 W, Thurston Co., Washington Terr. It was a cash sale. Most probably he was the Hiram J. who was one of the children of Benjamin Tanner OLNEY and Jane Smith who were taken in by their aunt Mary (OLNEY) BROWN at Olympia, Thurston Co., on their mother's death. The U. S. Census of 1870 for Snohomish County, Wash. Terr., shows an H. J. OLNEY ae 21, seaman, born England, living at Mukilteo, in a menage consisting of a steamboat captain, an engineer, another seaman and a Chinese cook. Possibly they were the crew of a steamer at the dock at census time. This is likely the same H. J. OLNEY who at the 1880 U. S. Census was a steamer captain living on Hat Island, Island Co., Wash. Terr. He was then married with two children. He then claimed birth in Iowa, his father having been born there also, his mother in England. That is correct for our subject. He and his family were still at Hat Island during the Territorial Censuses of 1883-1889 inclusive but were no longer shown there by 1892.

 Kane OLNEY recounted, "My brother Captain Hiram J. Olney in 1879 built the twin propeller Susie. In 1882, with D. B. Jackson, he organized the Washington Steamboat company. Later he purchased the Gaselle and still later he bought the Irving. He died when he was 38 years old."

 Hiram m. 1 Rose McLEAN at Olympia, Washington, 14 July 1875. Hiram bought 166.15 acres from the public lands in Snohomish County, Washington, consisting of Secs. 9 & 10, Twp 29 N Range 5 E, on 10 September 1875. That is in the delta of the Snohomish River, more or less on Steamboat Slough. It is now farmable but prone to heavy flooding. On 1 November 1879, Hiram J. and wife conveyed to M. V. B. STACY, mortgagee, "Part of B. F. Olney's D.L.C." at Vancouver, Clarke Co., Wash. This mortgage was satisfied 28 April 1898 and deeded back to Hiram and Rose .

 Hiram died, rather messily, in the wheelhouse when the Irving's boiler exploded while climbing the Skagit River below Sedro Woolley. He is buried in Seattle together with his wife (and her subsequent husband), daughter Rose Ernestine and her husband Duncan GRAHAM.

 Notes for Rose Gilmer MCLEAN

 Rose may possibly be related to the McLEAN family of Olympia, who were Charlotte (OLNEY) FRENCH's neighbors. (See notes for Silas Olney.)

 Following Hiram 's death she is found in Oak Harbor, Wash. at the 1889 Territorial Census with their children.

 She m. 2 say late 1899 Captain Samuel JACKSON (1833-1912.) At the 1910 Census they had been married nine years.

 On 26 January 1901 she conveyed, as "Rose G. JACKSON," in her own right and for her two minor wards Jasper H. and Moses OLNEY, 35 acres "more or less" of the Benjamin T. OLNEY DLC at Vancouver to one Duncan GRAHAM, who appears to have been her son-in-law.

 Children of Captain Hiram J. OLNEY and Rose Gilmer MCLEAN were as follows:

 10 i Rose Ernestine3 OLNEY[76] , born[77], [78] 1878 in WA; died[79] 1968; buried[80] in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA. She married (1)[81] on 8 Oct 1899 in Victoria, BC, CAN Duncan GRAHAM[82], [83] , born[84] 1858; died[85] 16 Sep 1926; buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA; (2) (---) HUBBART[86] . Notes: She was enumerated as "Annie" at the 1880 U. S. Census. Aged three on 1 June 1880, she was enumerated as "9" on 19 April 1887 in the Washington Territorial Census. She was therefore born in Jan-April 1878. She m. 1 Duncan GRAHAM (1858-1926) and 2 _____ HUBBART, probably after 1926. On 26 January 1901 she was party to the sale of part of the Benj. T. OLNEY Vancouver claim to her husband Duncan.

 11 ii Jasper H.3 OLNEY[87], born[88] abt Feb 1880 in WA; died aft 26 Jan 1901. Notes: He was enumerated as "Jesse," a female, at the 1887 Washington State Census (his sister Ernestine was "male.") The 1883 Territorial Census records him as "Gasper?" He was still a minor on 26 January 1901 when his mother sold his share of the Olney claim at Vancouver.

 12 iii Moses3 OLNEY[89], [90], born[91], [92], [93] Aug 1882 in WA; died aft 26 Jan 1901. Other events: Census[94] 6th Ward, Seattle, King, WA (12 Jun 1900). Notes: At the 1900 U. S. Census he was living at home with his mother and stepfather in Seattle, working as a salesman. He is recorded as a minor conveyor on a deed of 26 January 1901 (see Notes for siblings and parents.) However, on 31 May 1901, Moses Olney "of the city of Seattle" signed as an adult as a conveyor, together with Duncan and Rose Ernestine (OLNEY) GRAHAM, of the same 35 acre parcel. He is likely the same Moses OLNEY shown in the 1910 U. S. Census as an engineer at Portland, Oregon, married to Bertha KENELLY (1884- ) with son Edward M. (L. E. Olney)

 14 v Susie B.3 OLNEY[96] , born abt Oct 1886; died 1 Apr 1887; buried in Lake View Cemetery, Seattle, King, WA.

 4. Julian N.2 OLNEY[97], [98] (Benjamin Tanner1), born[99] Apr 1852 in Fairfield, Jefferson, IA; died bef 4 Jul 1889 in See Notes. He married[100] on 1 Apr 1872 in Island, WA Malgaretta[101] FORD[102], [103], [104] , born abt 1858 in WA; died bef 4 Jul 1889 in See Notes, daughter of Levi M. FORD and Rebecca MADDOX .

 Notes for Julian N. OLNEY

 Julian was born say 15 April 1852 by his sister Flora's account. He made the trip out the Oregon Trail with his family as a newborn. The family settled near Vancouver in late 1852. In the summer of 1864 he and brother Silas sailed as hands in their father's trading schooner Brant. He is probably the "Julian N." the 1870 U. S. Census found rooming in Island County, Wash., a laborer aged 18 born in Iowa. He was sharing quarters with a 33 year-old Irish horse currier. We can surmise his middle name was "Nathan," after his uncle. He worked as a marine engineer on Puget Sound steamers by his brother Kane's account.

 He m. 1 Malgaretta FORD. They had a daughter, Daisy who conveyed a one-fifth undivided interest in the Benjamin OLNEY DLC to Flora O. MASON on 13 July 1891. Julian must have died before 4 July 1889, when Daisy was married with the consent of a guardian.

 Notes for Malgaretta FORD

 She is shown as "Malgara" or "Malgaretta" in the 1870 and 1871 censuses of Island County but is not indexed thereafter as either FORD or OLNEY. Her parents were married in Island County and Malgaretta, second of four children by 1871, was most probably born there. She must have been dead before 4 July 1889, when her daughter was married with the consent of a guardian.

 

 Children of Julian N. OLNEY and Malgaretta FORD were as follows:

 + 15 i Daisy J.3 OLNEY.

 5. Captain Silas Freeman2 OLNEY[105], [106], [107], [108], [109] (Benjamin Tanner1), born[110], [111], [112], [113] 23 May 1854 in Vancouver, Clark, WA; died[114] 28 Dec 1918 in Alert Bay, BC, CAN. He married[115] on 23 May 1885 in Alert Bay, BC, CAN Lillianne KAMANO[116], [117] , born[118] 20 Feb 1868 in BC, CAN; died ________.

 Notes for Captain Silas Freeman OLNEY

 Silas was born on the family farm near Vancouver, Washington by sister Flora's account. The 1901 British Columbia census says 23 May 1853, but all the U. S. Census entries and his British Columbia death record point to 1854. After his mother's death (1857) he lived with his aunt Charlotte Emily (OLNEY) FRENCH near Olympia, Wash. During mid-1864, aged 9, he sailed as crew with his father in the Brant schooner. One of their ports of call was Montesano, Wash. In July 1870, the U.S. Census found Silas boarding with the farming family of John S. and Rebecca J. FRENCH[119] of Olympia and attending school. He went to work on Puget Sound, becoming a marine engineer. By 1885 he had removed to Alert Bay, British Columbia, where he was owner and master of a steam tug. Silas returned to Montesano in April 1913 to visit cousins living there and was interviewed by the Montesano newspaper.

 He m. 1 at Alert Bay, B. C., Lillianne KAMANO. They had six children. In addition, the following OLNEY deaths at Alert Bay are shown, probably Silas ' grandchildren:

 Jane Hope ae 1 19 Mar 1928, likely a dau. of Elmer Ivan and Alice Hope (COOK) OLNEY;

 Dorothy Mabel ae 12 30 Aug 1930;

 Sarah ae 5 6 Dec 1930;

 George Nathan ae 58 28 Apr 1977.

 Notes for Lillianne KAMANO

 Lillian was the third of seven children living at the 1881 Canadian Census in the household of George and Pauline KAMANO of Alert Bay. Lillian herself was born in British Columbia, her father in the Sandwich Islands. Her mother was native Canadian. The family was Catholic. George supported the family by hunting and fishing. The enumerated residents of Harbledown Island and Alert Bay then consisted of the KAMANO and HUSEN families (the latter Methodist) and three bachelors rooming together: a Yankee, a Swede and a Frenchman.

 She m. 1 Silas F. OLNEY at Alert Bay, B. C. She may be the Lillian OLNEY who m. 2 Oct 1928 at Sardis, B. C., William A. HALL.

 Children of Captain Silas Freeman OLNEY and Lillianne KAMANO were as follows:

He married[156] on 12 Nov 1894 in St. Luke's Episcopal, Vancouver, Clark, WA, (divorced 25 Feb 1914) Katherine HEINEY[157], [158], [159] , born[160], [161], [162] Mar 1871 in OR; died aft 1914.

 Notes for Captain Kane OLNEY

 Kane was born while the family was enroute from Astoria to their Vancouver farm. His mother died soon after and he was raised by the McCREARY family just south of Astoria. (At the 1900 U. S. Census, living with Kane and his wife was a Caroline MCCREARY ae 87 born Kentucky, listed as "mother.") (L. E. OLNEY) Aged 20, Kane went to work on the Columbia River, rising to pilot and master of steamers on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. In 1903 he was pilot of the crack sternwheeler Lurline. By 1906 he became master of the Undine among others. He worked about five years on Puget Sound and afterward on the ferry at Kalama, Wash. He retired from the trade about 1920.

 Kane married Kate HEINEY at Vancouver, Wash. (1894) Soon after, Kane and Kate took in his uncle Orville OLNEY, who lived with them in declining health and possibly increasing dementia for about two years, say 1894-1895. In September 1895, Kane loaned his uncle fifty dollars to move to the Oregon Soldiers Home at Roseburg. When Orville was adjudged insane in 1899 and sent to the state asylum, Kane was appointed guardian on his own petition. Kane filed the guardian's final report with Multnomah County Court in September 1913.

 Kane mortgaged 125 acres of the OLNEY DLC at Vancouver 4 February 1898 to L. N. BELLENGER. That property reverted to his sister Flora on satisfaction of the mortgage 10 June 1898.

 Kane and Kate moved at some point to her farm in Washington County, in the West Cedar census precinct. They were there at the 1910 U. S. Census about which time Kane suffered some sort of disability. He later related, "While I was pilot on the No Wonder I was standing on the bow directing the work of a deckhand. He drove a dog hook into one of the logs, but didn't drive it deep enough. When we started to tow the raft the dog pulled out and struck me in the forehead. I didn't know anything for several days. My skull was fractured and the doctor took out a good-sized piece of bone." By February, 1913, they were living in a rooming house in Portland at East Pine and Union (now Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.) and Kate was working in restaurants and taking in washing to support the family. By say January 1913 they resided at 1221 East Main St., with at least one boarder, an Elmer E. STOWE.

 In January 1914, Kate filed for divorce, alleging that Kane had battered her severely from 1913 onward. In testimony she said Kane had earlier tried to coerce her into signing her farm over to him and knocked her down when she refused. STOWE testified that when he tried to remonstrate with Kane, Kane came at him with a knife but STOWE disarmed him. Kane did not contest the divorce and was absent during the proceedings, having made prior settlement with Kate. Attorney John R. HUGHES represented him. In 1915, apparently in retirement, Kane is shown in the Portland directory as "watchman stmr State of Washington." By 1917 he was living at 230 Sheridan, listed as steamer captain. From 1921 he lived at the Odd Fellows Home, 3214 SE Holgate Blvd. Fred Lockley interviewed him there for The Oregon Journal. The city directory's last record of him there is in 1936. Joan Olsson and Laverne Edward Olney agree on Kane 's death in Marion County, Ore., 14 September 1936. That would likely be at the state hospital in Salem.

 Notes for Katherine HEINEY

 From Census records it appears her father was an Irish immigrant, her mother an Oregon tribal woman and her daughter Flora claimed (1958) to be of mixed race. Katherine appears to be her true name. All official records, including her OLNEY marriage, divorce and Census entries, use "Katherine" or "Kate," although her daughter Flora in 1958 asserted "Julia Catherine DOWD." That could reflect a remarriage following her divorce from OLNEY or a prior marriage. It would also explain Flora's middle name. The Oregon State Archives index shows a birth in 1888 at Portland to Frank and Catherine HEINEY. Likely this is our Kate, who is shown at the 1910 U. S. Census to be in her third marriage. Apparently that child did not survive, nor did another born one of her previous marriages, as Kate is shown to have two living children of four.

 Kate m. 3 Kane OLNEY at Vancouver, Wash., in 1894. Ten years later she filed for divorce in Clackamas County, Ore. Her testimony indicates she had owned her own farm in Washington County, Ore., where the family lived for a time (1900-1910).

 After the family removed to Portland (ca. 1913) Kate worked in restaurants and took in washing to support the family. With the divorce in 1914, Kate gained custody of the couple's two children, Flora and John. Kate was certainly dead by 1958.

  Children of Captain Kane OLNEY and Katherine HEINEY were as follows:

 

22 i Flora Julia3 OLNEY[163] , born[164], [165] 12 Apr 1902 in Portland, Multnomah, OR; died[166] 27 Apr 1990. She married[167] abt 1920 (---) LAYCOX[168] . Notes: She was likely named for her aunt Flora (Olney) MASON . Her parents divorced when she was twelve (1914). During the proceeding her mother lodged Flora at the Oswego Boarding School. She m. _____ LAYCOX, probably ca. 1920 as she herself had a daughter 19 Mar 1921[169], whose birth certificate was used to support her own application for delayed issue of a birth certificate (1958.) Flora then gave her birthday as 8 April. She also used that date applying for her Social Security number but the compiler chooses to use her mother's statement of 1914 instead.

 

23 ii John3 OLNEY[170] , born[171] 1906/07 in OR. Notes: During his parents' divorce his mother placed him in the Beaverton Boarding School.

 

Generation 3

 

 9. Ruth Auralia3 MASON[172] (Flora Emily2 OLNEY, Benjamin Tanner1), born[173] 27 Aug 1881 in Springfield, Lane, OR; died ________. She married[174] in 1900 Francis W. BYLES[175] , born 1876 in WA; died ________.

 Notes for Ruth Auralia MASON

 She lived with her mother and sister after the family broke up. Ruth m. 1 Francis W. BYLES and removed to Grays Harbor County, Wash. They were living there ca. 1906 and were still there when her uncle Silas visited in 1913.

 Notes for Francis W. BYLES

 At the 1930 U. S. Census he was a Montesano mill manager residing at 415 North Third St.

 Children of Ruth Auralia MASON and Francis W. BYLES were as follows:

 24 i Chester N.4 BYLES , born[176] 1905. Notes: At the 1930 U. S. Census he was a commercial scaler, unm. and living with his parents.

 25 ii Frances Carol4 BYLES , born[177], [178] 22 Apr 1916 in Grays Harbor, WA.

  

15. Daisy J.3 OLNEY[179], [180], [181] (Julian N.2, Benjamin Tanner1), born[182] Feb 1873 in WA; died[183] 13 Dec 1901; buried[184] Dec 1901 in Mima Prairie Pioneer Cemetery, Littlerock, Thurston, WA. She married[185] on 4 Jul 1889 in Olympia, Thurston, WA George SCHRIVER[186], [187] , born[188], [189] Apr 1861 in RUS; died[190] 1927; buried 1927 in Maple Hill Cemetery, Lebam, Pacific, WA.

 Notes for Daisy J. OLNEY

 Daisy may have been born in Island County, Washington Territory. She was apparently orphaned and taken in by her father's family, for her marriage at age 16 was consented to by her aunt and guardian, Charlotte Emily (OLNEY) FRENCH. She married George SCHRIVER and had six children by him, of whom three survived to adulthood.

 Daisy "and husband" conveyed 13 July 1891 an undivided one-fifth interest in the remains of the Olney DLC to Flora OLNEY MASON. This must be the portion of Julian N. OLNEY, which is the only share of the claim not otherwise accounted for. We may consider it most likely that her father was deceased, as no other record of conveyance or decree has been found.

 Notes for George SCHRIVER

 George was born in Russia and immigrated in 1876, becoming naturalized. At the 1889 Washington Terr. Census he was a farmer in Thurston County. He m. 1 Daisy J. OLNEY 4 July 1889 at Olympia. They had six children by 1900, of whom only four were living at the 1900 U. S. Census. At that point they were living at Gate, in southwest Thurston County. George was working at the local sawmill. He was found at the 1910 U. S. Census living on Ward Street by the railroad yards in Centralia, Lewis County, Washington. Then 49, widower with two children, he was listed as German of German parents, having immigrated in 1880. (Perhaps one of the children was giving the information.) He was working as a railroad section foreman and lived among a group of other railroad men. He is buried in a lot owned by his daughter Ethel's family at Lebam.

 Children of Daisy J. OLNEY and George SCHRIVER were as follows:

 26 i Ethel M.4 SCHRIVER , born[191] Feb 1891 in WA; died[192] 1957. She married[193] bef Jun 1910 Elmer Festus NICKELL , born[194] 21 Oct 1881 in West Liberty, Morgan, KY; died ________. Notes: She was probably married before the 1910 U. S. Census as she is not shown then in her father's household.

 27 ii Infant4 SCHRIVER , died[195] bef Jun 1900 in WA. Notes: Daisy SCHRIVER was shown as having six children, four living at the 1900 U. S. Census. We have no other record of this child. He or she was likely born after Ethel and before Guy , where there is a five-year gap.

 28 iii Infant4 SCHRIVER , died[196] bef 1 Jun 1900. Notes: See Notes for previous child.

 + 29 iv Guy L.4 SCHRIVER.

 30 v Effie R.4 SCHRIVER , born[197], [198] Mar 1898 in WA; died ________. Notes: She was two at the 1900 U. S. Census, living with her parents and siblings at Gate, Thurston County, Wash. Aged twelve at the 1910 U. S. Census Effie lived with her widower father and brother on Ward Street, Centralia, Lewis County, Washington. No further census record of her has been found. Effie was probably born in Thurston County, either at Gate or in Olympia.

 31 vi George E.4 SCHRIVER[199] , born[200] May 1900 in Gate City, Thurston, WA; died[201] 4 Feb 1970 in Tacoma, Pierce, WA. He married (1) bef 1920 Pauline SCHUH , born 1896 in ND; died ________; (2)[202] Clara (---)[203] . Notes: His obituary: "George E. Schriver, 69, of 6626 S Warner St, died Wednesday. He was born in Gate and lived in Tacoma 20 years. Mr. Schriver was a retired Navy veteran of World War II and a U. S. Post Office employee. He was a member of Hope Lutheran Church. Survivors include his wife, Clara; a stepdaughter, Mrs. Steve (Charlotte) Stephens, of Saratoga, Calif; a brother, Guy , of Lebam; and four grandchildren. Services are announced by Piper Funeral Home." The 1910 U. S. Census did not find George at home. A George SCHRIVER, express driver, is shown at 4324 - 79th St. S.E., Portland, Oregon (Pct 117) on 1 January 1920. He was 26; both parents were shown as Russian Germans. The rest of the household were his wife Pauline and her sisters, Elizabeth and Martha. His identity and this marriage are not proved.

 Generation 4

 Notes for Guy L. SCHRIVER

 Aged 13, Guy was living with his widower father on Ward Street, Centralia, Lewis County, Washington 12 April 1910 at the U. S. Census. Later that year they moved to Lebam, Pacific Co., thirty-one miles west.

 "Guy Schriver of Lebam enlisted in the Navy 21 Jul 1917 at Seattle. He was sent to the U.S. Naval Training Station at Bremerton and assigned to the Engineers Department. He was assigned to the U.S.S. Alabama and later transferred to the U.S.S. Olympia. Here he was promoted to 1st Class fireman and sailed overseas 28 Apr 1918 on the Olympia out of Charleston SC. He served two years and two months and sailed for home 25 Oct 1919 landing at Charleston, where he was discharged 24 Nov 1919." (SW WA Servicemen and Women World War I)

 He returned to Lebam and became a logger for the Weyerhaeuser Company, retiring in 1963. He m. 1 Donalda GAUTHIER. They had two sons and two daughters who survived him, providing seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is buried at Lebam.
