    1. [WAFERRY] DETERING - STRUNK - DEEGAN family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of old photographs belonging to the DETERING and STRUNK Families. The group of 9 photographs include photographs of the following individuals: . John DETERING - Vancouver, WA, 20's or 30's in uniform, dated 1908 and mailed to Mrs. Emma SCHLICHTING in Brush Prairie, WA . Lana DETERING and Floyd - early 1900's taken at the Emery Studio, no location, Lana in her 20's and Floyd just an infant . Lana and Elsie STRUNK - Sisters, Xmas 1903, taken at the Hayes & Hayes Studio in Portland, OR . Mamie and Will STRUNK - no studio or location, early 1900's, couple in 20's . Kate DEEGAN and Lana STRUNK - taken at Republic, WA 2 Mar 1901, in their 20's . Loney & Hattie STRUNK - no studio or location, 1890's or early 1900's, couple in their 20's "to Emma" . Elda and David STRUNK - Married 5 Aug 1908 (two copies of this photograph) one on postcard mailed to Mrs. Ida SHERMAN in Edgewood, IA . Tom STRUNK Family - taken by Shaffer Studio in Edgewood, IA, family in front of cabin type home, parents with 7 children pictured Based on limited research I know the following regarding this family: Lana May STRUNK was b. Aug 1879 or 1880 in Kansas City, KS to parents Thomas Jefferson STRUNK (1838-1900) and Juliaetta or Juliette or Julie Etta or Julia Etta or Juliett or Julie EASTMAN or EASTON (1850-1911). Lana was one of 12 children born to this couple including, Anna or Annie; William Mervin; Lorenzo Dow; Henry; Alfred Hillman; Lana; Albert D.; Emma A. or R.; David Francis; Edwin Milo or Allen; Thomas Jefferson; and Elsa or Elsie or Elsia Vera STRUNK, all born between 1867 and 1890. Lana married John Wilhelm DETERING (b. 17 Oct 1878 in Freelinville, IN-d. 21 Jun 1949 in Chelan, WA- son of Henry Herman DETERING and Caroline M. "Cary" or "Carrie" DROSTEY or DROSTE) and together they had 5 children including, Floyd John Henry; Vera Marie; Dorris; Victor Henry; and Ruth DETERING, all born between 1906 and 1919. Lana died 20 Jan 1960 in Vancouver, WA and is buried in the Fishers Cemetery in Vancouver, WA. Lana's husband John is also buried in the same cemetery along with their daughter Ruth D. DETERING OVERBAY (1919-1983). Her son Floyd was b. 11 Jan 1906 in Washington State and went on to marry Lois C. MITCHELL (1907-1991)and they had 4 children. Floyd died 3 Dec 1982 in Manson, WA. Lana's son Victor Henry DETERING was b. in 1915 and died 11 May 1918 in Vancouver, WA when he was just a few years old. Their daughter Vera DETERING b. 1908 also died when she was just a few years old on 8 Aug 1911 in Clarke Co., WA. John W. DETERING was living in Vancouver, WA at 1570 Grant Street in 1918 when he was drafted noting his occupation as a Carpenter working for the Standifer Co. John W. DETERING was still living in Vancouver, WA when he was registered for the draft in 1942 listing his employer as the Vancouver School Board and his next of kin as his wife Lana May DETERING of 703 W. 15th Street in Vancouver, WA. I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful group of old photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Thank you for piecing this together for me. I’m also certain that I’m onto the right family after finding that 3/7/01 birth in MN, then finding probably the same woman dying in Seattle. I will know more once I open the sealed adoption file in Superior Court.

    1. [WAFERRY] update Ruth Larson/Marion Parks
    2. Michele/Steve Heiderer via
    3. I should have mentioned this in my first email regarding my search for Ruth Larson/Marion Parks. I have been through the Washington Digital Archives up and down and could not find her birth. There are 9 counties (who are receiving this email through rootsweb.com <http://rootsweb.com/>) that do not have the pre-1907 births listed online. I am guessing that she was born in one of those counties. The Digital Archives does have her marriage to John Wright but I am not interested in this time period; I have already documented the marriage, the birth of her two sons, their separation, the children being placed for adoption, and later on, her death in 1985. I am seeking her birth information. I have also gone through Ancestry.com <http://ancestry.com/> but cannot find her birth or any information on her earliest years, her parent’s names etc. I am sending this email to clarify that I have already gone through the Digital Archives and Ancestry so that anyone reading this email doesn’t duplicate what I have already done. So, to clarify, I am looking for the birth information and parent’s names of RUTH LARSON, possibly born March 7, 1901. She may have had a brother named Walter but nothing is known about him. She was left at Children’s Home Society in Seattle around 1907 or so. She is on the 1910 census for CHS but there is no information about her family. She was adopted by “Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Parks” in 1912 but I don’t know where that adoption occurred. Her name was changed to Marion Parks. She married a few years later, had two sons, was taken to Northern State Hospital in Sedro Woolley where she spent much of her life until the place closed. She lived the latter part of her life in Mt. Vernon (Skagit County), possibly in a group home, and died there Sept. 29, 1985. I will be petitioning court to open her adoption file (on behalf of her descendants) when I can figure out where she was born, and eventually where she was adopted.

    2. Sue Richart
    3. Hi List Members, This is a notice about the Crossroads on the Columbia project, crossroadsarchive.org and crossroadsarchive.net. As many of you know, Stevens County in the 1860s, and for some into the 1870s, extended over Stevens, Ferry, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Lincoln, Okanogan, part of Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Adams, Franklin, and Whitman counties. I've photographed the Spokane/Stevens County Commissioner Journals Books A and B, which cover 1860 to 1893. I was wondering if some of the list members that have a Facebook account would be interested in helping figure out some of the references, people or handwriting. Most references outside of Stevens, Ferry, Pend Oreille, and Spokane Counties will be licenses for liquor sales, ferry crossings, election precinct duty, and jury duty. I've been getting help for some of the project's name extractions on the Rootsweb Facebook page, but having those more familiar with the areas and names would be helpful.

    1. [WAFERRY] Crossroads on the Columbia project update
    2. Sue Richart
    3. Hi Listers, We've continued to work on the Preserve America Crossroads on the Columbia project. Images are online at crossroadsarchive.net. Items from the Stevens County Historical Society: Wurzburg Store Sales Book March to October 1863 (items 14291 to 14371). This is the earliest ledger in our collection. The store is at Marcus and provided food and items to miners and other early pioneers. Several Chinese miners are listed as customers. W. L. Sax Ledger 1892 - 1911 (items 14372 to 14439). Sax was very involved in local government and the schools. This ledger is his personal accounting of rents and income/expense. Stevens County Personal Property Tax Assessment (items 14440 to 14605). This is the 1898 tax assessment ledger for Stevens County, which included what are now Ferry and Pend Oreille County. Togo Mine Scrapbook (Items 14606 to 14688). This is a scrap book of the Togo Mine, and includes photographs, information about investments, maps of the mine, and other items connected to the mine. Colville Post Office Box Rental (items 14752 to 14941). This ledger records who held boxes at the Colville Post Office 1907 - 1913. >From the Springdale Pioneer Rodeo Association Camas Valley Telephone Company 1906 to 1912 (items 14689 to 14751). This is a small ledger with the accounting of the telephone company. Once the pages of the accounting stop, Art Miller used the remaining pages to post articles about the history of the area and then obituaries and funeral cards. Coming up are The GAR muster rolls for Colville, A large collection of photographs from around the county, Colville Volunteer Fire Department 1904-1914 Ledger Terra Cotta Order Book by James D. Mason, Chemist, Washington Brick Lime Co. List of buildings done and glazes used Independent Telephone Company, which covers part of the Suncrest and Happy Hill area in the southern end of the county. Hotel Lee 1928 guest ledger Cummins Post Office Ledger showing money orders, etc. Later Cummins becomes the town of Leadpoint. Stevens County Personal Property Tax Assessment 1899 These cover current Stevens and Pend Oreille Counties Stevens County Personal Property Tax Assessment 1900 Stevens County Personal Property Tax Assessment 1901 More of these assessment rolls will be photographed and added to the collection, until we get to the allotted amount remaining for museum curator fees. The full list of available tax assessment ledgers is on the Family Search Wiki Stevens County, Washington page, http://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Stevens_County,_Washington . Kettle Falls General Store ledger for the 1899 to 1901 time frame. Papers from the J. C. Harrigan collection. Harrigan was a newspaper editor with a strong interest is local Stevens County history. Some of the letters are from John B. Slater, one of the earliest newspaper editors. Slater discussed early history and many of his stories are part of the Little Journey's Around Town stories. Harrigan did extensive research on all the post offices in the county. Those that added to our understanding of the early post offices were scanned. There are a lot of forms, letters, and other items from post offices around Stevens County that haven't been photographed, nor will they be for this project. Disposition of Jacob Meyers about the Meyers Falls dam, including pictures. Hudson Bay Company land claims map. Image quality for the online copies for the Stevens County Historical Society is at 100 dpi vice the 200 dpi for other items. If you would like better quality images, contact the Stevens County Historical Society, http://www.stevenscountyhistoricalsociety.org/ . We are going to try and finish up all the imaging this month and will work on the processing and meta data for the next month or so. I had issues updating the names database and haven't had time to track down the problem. Once the photographing/scanning is done, I'll work on getting it up-to-date. As always, I hope this material gives you clues to the lives of your family. Sue Richart Chewelah

    1. [WAFERRY] Crossroads on the Columbia Project recent updates
    2. Sue Richart
    3. Hi Listers, The Crossroads on the Columbia, a Preserve America project, continues. Websites are crossroadsarchive.net for images, and crossroadsarchive.org for articles. Since my last update, I've added pdfs of the 1892 to 1892 Colville Newspapers. They start at item 12495 and continue to 13949. As both Ferry and Pend Oreille Counties were part of Stevens County at the time there are stories about both areas. These are pdfs and you have to download them from the link at the top of the item information to view them unlike the images, where you can see it without downloading. I do have in the subject/keyword fields the towns that have a column or story about them. I am going back through the pdfs to create a tag that indicates there is local news on the page for those that may be researching the Colville area, as the newspapers are from Colville, all items have Colville in the subject field. I have completed half of the pages and the tag Local News will show for the first 500 pages if local news is on the page. The NeWGS has partially extracted names, so you can contact them, http://www.newgs.org/ for potential names. I must give warning, the image quality ranges from unreadable to poor for the most part. Although we received these digital images from the NeWGS, they were not responsible for the original quality of the microfilms. The newspapers were only photographed at 300 dpi. If you do find something and would like a better quality copy, the Stevens County Historical Society, http://www.stevenscountyhistoricalsociety.org/, does have originals. Images from the City of Marcus have also been added. They start with item 13950 and go to 14092. Finally, some more Loon Lake Historical Society photographs were added. These are from Evan Morgan's granddaughter and for the most part are photographs of the lake and activities. They are items 14093 to 14127. We still have a lot to process before the project ends in October. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to post some more updates soon. Sue Richart Chewelah, WA

    1. [WAFERRY] Crossroads on the Columbia New Items
    2. Sue Richart
    3. Hi Listers, We've added new material to crossroadsarchive.org and crossroadsarchive.net under the Preserve America Crossroads on the Columbia grant. On crossroadsarchive.org, we've added two interactive maps. One shows current active Granges in Stevens County, the other ( http://crossroadsarchive.org/maps/granges ) shows the over 70 granges that have existed in Stevens County over the years, including their start and stop years. As we have photographs that relates to the granges, we'll add it to the links. On crossroadsarchive.net, we added Chewelah Telephone Company ledger; scrapbook of the First National Bank; Chewelah Museum's brickyard, sawmills, and mining photographs; the next 50 Evan Morgan (Loon Lake) images; material from the Chewelah School District historical records, which includes petitions to dissolve the Union High School, lists of citizens paying down an outstanding debt; and more Col Jenkins papers; Valley Store Invoice Book; and Benny Mellenberger's ledger that includes fruit growing activity in the Columbia River area. The Mellenbergers owned what is now Sherman Creek Orchard in Ferry County. Still to come are photographs from Kettle Falls, more Loon Lake material, the Rebekah minute book from Ione, Pend Oreille County, and the Clayton Terra Cota and Brick employees ledger. One of our volunteers has extracted names from some of the Chewelah ledgers and they will be added to our names database on the .org website. We continue looking through the Chewelah Independent newspaper and have added explanations of some of the material already uploaded. The dates for two of the photographs have been added/changed, as they were on the front page of the Chewelah Independent. I'm continuing to try and find when the Service Star Legion organization went away. If any listers are in the Maryland area and would like to help, please email me. The University of Maryland Library did look for the organization in the Baltimore directories, but the SSL was only listed in the 1920s. They never had a headquarters and, just used personal addresses for the various offices. Hope some of our material assists you in your research. Sue Richart Chewelah

If you go to www.crossroadsarchive.net, Exhibits, Directories, Polk 1911 Directory, and then towards the bottom of the page, the appropriate pdf file, you can view the directory. There is a list in the Document Type section that breaks out what file covers what sections. We also have the 1932 Telephone Directory for Hunters and Kettle Falls online. Coming soon will be a series of Chewelah Telephone Directories starting in 1918. Even though we only have a 1/5 of the project online, there is a wide variety of material already: photographs, school board minutes, directories, maps, Bank of Chewelah ledger, Oppenheimer Store (Chewelah) ledger, Colonel Jenkins' ledgers, and high school newspapers. The Preserve America Crossroads on the Columbia project does need help. If you would like to help create exhibits and extract names, please contact me. You only need internet access to help.
