Norman Palmer came to the Cascades of the Columbia by the overland route better known as the Oregon Trail. He and five of his children had departed Illinois in two ox drawn wagons in March of 1851. They had left Danville, Illinois as part of a company of hardy pioneers and after six months of arduous travel halted their progress at the lower landing. The Palmers at the Cascades in 1851 consisted of Norman D. Palmer Sr., two daughters, Luna and Helen and three sons, Cornelius, Gurdon, and Norman, Jr. Another daughter, Emily, will arrive in 1853. This Palmer family is not closely related to the more famous Joel Palmer nor with any other Palmers who came earlier or later to Oregon or Washington.

Six months after arriving at the Cascades the two daughters who accompanied Norman married two prominent local men. In a double ceremony performed by the above mentioned Francis A. Chenowith on March 28, 1852, Luna M. Palmer married Bolivar Bishop and Helen Palmer married Putnam Bradford who was also mentioned in the census. At this point our story gains in scope because Bishop and Bradford were business partners in several lucrative endeavors in the area. Bolivar Bishop had come to the Cascades just after the 1850 census and after working in the gold mines in California; he was originally from Connecticut. The Bradford brothers along with a few fellow Massachusetts natives had bought a sailboat and sailed themselves around the horn to San Francisco and then to Oregon.

Peter Larseneur brought his family to California from Canada in 1852. He was a contractor and, with Caleb S. Merrill as a partner, built many of the early buildings in Benicia, among them the old Benicia Barracks. Afterwards he was a contractor in San Francisco, and among the many buildings he erected was the old Stock exchange.

Ziba Gibson discovery

Posted by: Ernest Johnson (ID *****0241)Date: August 20, 2009

I wanted to pass on a new discovery to all Gibsons claiming descend from the Ziba Gibson line. That would include all the branches of this line living in the border area of NC/SC especially in the Anson, Richmond. Scotland and Chesterfield Counties of NC/SC. I descend from Nelson Gibson the supposed son of Ziba and Mary Gibson through my mother. Nelsons brother was Thomas Gibson. They both fought in the War of Independences under General Francis Marion. I have been researching this Gibson line for years. My interest in the family was sparked by my great grandmother Gibson at an early age when she would related the story that our Gibsons once had another name.

The story goes that Ziba came to Virginia in the late 1600s or very early 1700s and that he had changed his name to escape the British army. That his original name was a Mac name. My research revealed this family name tradition in all the different branches from Nelson and Thomas Gibson mentioned above. The most noted name was Mcgregor. When the new tool of dna testing for genealogy became available I not only pursued my own surname but used this wonderful new tool to research my Gibson line to determine if indeed there had been a name change and if sowhat was the early surname. I had my mothers brother volunteer a sample to be tested. I started with 25 markers. The matching results was with a lot of different surnames in the 12 marker range (this is normal). In the 25 marker range, the number of matches were with other surnames, but no Gibsons. I then went to the 37 marker range. At this range you begin to separate distance relationships from more recent relationships. At the 37 marker range I had very close matches with eight Davenports and four Hodnetts. My percentage with one of the Hodnett and one of the Davenports was over 99% of having a common ancestor with 24 generations and 92% in 16 generations. To be certain this percentage to a common ancestor would hold up I upgraded to the 67 marker test.
Well the results are in. The results conclusively verify that our Gibson line is indeed related to the Davenport and Hodnett lines. The relationship to the Davenports is not to all Davenports but to one certain line of Davenports known as the Pamunkey Davenports that go back to 1600 Virginia wWhen a Davis Davenport settled on Pamunkey Neck. There is record of a relationship between one of these Pamunkey Davenports and a Thomas Gibson who were neighbors back in the 1600s.

What of the Hodnetts? It gets interesting here. I believe the Hodnetts to be the older line. The Hodnetts are said to be of Norman descent. The Hodnetts that settled in Ireland are said to have changed their names to McSherry to escape Cromwells army. Now this fits well with our Gibson tradition of a name change from Mac?????

If I remember correctly there are no other Gibsons from the Ziba Gibson line in the Gibson DNA project. I would like to encourage any male Gibsons related to this line to test. There is a number of dna for genealogy testing companies out there. My primary and preferred company is FamilyTree DNA in Houston Tx. This would help verify there was nopaternity" event in my branch thus making this research null.

Please contact me at cujo@suddenlink.net if you have an interest in testing or have any questions or comments.

Thanks, Ernest

Notes for HARRY WHITNEY FISK:

In 1894 Harry left his boyhood home in Adrian, Lenawee Co., Mich. to seek his fortune in Washington Territory. He found employment at the Kelso Bros. Ranch in the Yakima Valley. The Kelso Brothers' ranch appears on the 1888 tax list for Yakima County, Washington for which their tax liability was $1,874. According to the list the Kelso Bros. were based in Wallula which is several miles downstream on the Columbia River from its junction with the Yakima River. Harry later went into partnership with William L. Dimmick. Together they leased 2,000 acres of farm land on the Horseheaven Hills south and east of Prosser, Washington, which they put into dry-land wheat. Two of Harry's sisters soon came out from Michigan to share in his successes. Harry's sister, Gertrude Fisk, married Harry's partner W. L. "Bill" Dimmick.

In the 1910 Benton Co., Washington census Emily, Ernest, Grace, Harry, Luna, and Roy are living in house 248. Their surname is spelled Fiske. House number 248 is presumably in the immediate vicinity of house 249 in which live the Thorpe Roberts family. Thorpe married Luna's mother, Emma (Bishop) Burk.

In an effort to discover the reason his son's middle name is Welch: Rollin is nearby in Lenawee Co., Michigan. MR. WELCH - d 25 Nov 1868, shot accidently at turkey shoot in Rollin. Son in law, MR JAMES SPEAR

Dr. James Spalding, third son of deacon Reuben (2) and Jerusha (Carpenter) Spalding, was born in Sharon, Vermont, March 10, 1792, died March 15, 1858. He obtained a good common school education, and at the age of seventeen years began the study of medicine with Dr. Eber Carpenter, of Alstead, New Hampshire, at the same time took private lessons in Greek and Latin. At the age of twenty years he was graduated M.D. at Dartmouth Medical Institution. He practiced two years in Alstead with Dr. Carpenter, then practiced for a time in Claremont, Vermont, but yielding to the solicitation of friends removed to Montpelier, Vermont. Though but a boy he had seen much practice and performed many surgical operations, therefore it required but a short time for him to gain general confidence as a physician and surgeon, which he retained without abatement throughout life. As a surgeon Dr. Spalding was successful above most others. He was an original thinker, well informed in the books and general principles of his profession, as was manifested not only in his medical and surgical practice, but in other departments of science. It was a maxim with him that there should be no guess work in his profession, and that strict integrity was the true and only policy which should govern every man. For more than forty years he was an active member of the Vermont State Medical Society, and through it labored to advance the best interests of the profession he best loved. In 1819 he was elected secretary, which office he held for over twenty years. He was elected vice-president in 1843, treasurer in 1844, chairman of the committee on history of the Society in 1845; elected president in 1846-47-48, in the latter years delivering a dissertation non the Typhus Fever, which was published by vote of the society. He was elected corresponding secretary in 1850, and librarian in 1854, which office he held until his death. He was also a member of the board of fellows of the Vermont Academy of Medicine, besides holding many offices in the state connected with science, literature and temperance. He devoted his life to his profession, having never engaged in any other business or sought any political preferment. But few men in the country have seen such an amount of disease and so carefully observed the peculiarities of the various epidemics occurring for half a century, and it is to be regretted that so little is left on record of his extensive observation and experience both as a physician and a surgeon.

He married (first) November 2, 1820, Eliza Reed, born October 13, 1798, at Hampstead, New Hampshire, died August 8, 1853, at Montpelier, Vermont. He married (second) Mrs. Anna (Lyman) Dodd, April 18, 1855, at Springfield, Massachusetts. She was born November 28, 1798, at Hartford, Vermont, died December 11, 1856, at Montpelier.

Children, all born in Montpelier, Vermont, all by first wife:

James Reed, of further mention.
Martha Eliza, died in infancy.
William Cowper, born September 24, 1825; he graduated at New York University in 1847, was commissioned surgeon in the Twenty-ninth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, September 3, 1862; soon after he left for the front and was engaged in several battles, acting as brigade surgeon; he was with General Grant at the siege of Vicksburg, but after the surrender of the city resigned on account of ill health and returned to Watertown, Wisconsin, where he resumed the practice of his profession; he married (first) August 2, 1855, Isabella McLaughlin, died October, 1855, leaving no children; he married (second) March 10, 1857, Anna Amelia Potter, born July 4, 1835, died July 4, 1888; he married (third) Mrs. Susan D. McRae, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; child, Mary Irwin, born August 12, 1875.
Martha Eliza, born October 5, 1827, died October 30, 1848, unmarried.
Elizabeth, died in infancy.
Jane Maria, born May 27, 1833; married Dr. Abner Spicer Warner, of Wethersfield, Connecticut, June 7, 1869.
Rev. George Burley, of further mention.
Isabelle, born November 26, 1837; married, June 8, 1864, Cooke Lounsbury.

James Reed, eldest son of Dr. James and Eliza (Reed) Spalding, was born November 15, 1821, at Montpelier, Vermont, died October 10, 1872, in Dover, New Hampshire. He graduated from the University of Vermont, 1840, and was afterward a private tutor in Georgia, at the same time studying law. On his return to Montpelier, Vermont, he was admitted to the bar and began practice with Joseph Prentice. His literary tastes led him to relinquish his profession, and he spent several years in travel in Europe and the East, as a close student of manners, morals and politics. He was a witness of the events of the revolution of France in 1848. His letters to the New York Courier and Inquirer during his sojourn won for him the highest praise from English and American scholars. In the spring of 1850 he became one of the editors of the Courier and Inquirer. His remarkable ability as a writer was soon widely recognized; his reputation as a fearless independent critic of public men and measures created a demand for the establishment of a new journal which might be a full reflection of his own spirit and character, and the New York World was the result. Its career began in June, 1860, as a religious daily, conservative in character, Republican in politics, but mismanagement prevented his carrying out his cherished plan. When that property changed hands, in 1861, Mr. Spalding became connected with the New York Times, and many of the most powerful appeals to the country in its years of darkest disaster were from his pen. His published addresses are "Spiritual Philosophy and Material Politics" and "The True Idea of Female Education." Richard Grant White, who was associated with Mr. Spalding in editorial work, said of him: "Mr. Spalding's vigor and elegance have never been excelled by a writer upon the city press." He was a gentleman of the most liberal culture and as an editor stood among the very foremost of his profession. He was a man of profound convictions, and all the resources of classical culture, of historic study and of extended travel were always at his command. He married, January 18, 1865, Mary Elizabeth Atwater, born in Catskill, New York, June 5, 1837, who died June 10, 1898; one child, Mary Atwater, born October 24, 1866, resides in Catskill, New York.

Frances Fanny (Gray) Cavener

By Ray Gold

Frances Fanny Gray was born October 18, 1820 in Tennessee, to Austin Gray, born February 10, 1788, and Mary Barnett Polly [Smiley] Gray, born April 22, 1792, [taken from the bible of Samuel Gray, in possession of Mrs. William Medearis Smith, Fayetteville, TN. On June 23, 1842 she married James Cavener in Marshall County, Tennessee. He was the son of Patrick and Keziah [Tucker] Cavener.

In the 1850 census of Marshall County, TN., they are listed with their children; James Cavener 28, VA., Frances 30, TN., Timothy 5, TN., Adaline 4, TN., Mary Polly 2, TN., Sarah E. 8/12, TN.. This same family is shown on the 1860 census of Christian County, Missouri. House #412, Fanny Cavener [WD] 37, TN., Real Estate taxes $120.00, Timothy 16, TN., Adaline 14, TN., Polly 12, TN., Clementine 4, TN., Josephine 3, TN., and Martha R., 1, born in Missouri. This census shows their youngest child to be one year old, and Fanny to be a widow. So James Cavener died in about 1859. The story has been handed down that he died en route to Missouri from Tennessee, and it is not known where he is buried.

Fanny [Gray] Cavener re-married in 1860, to Thomas Maples. Her oldest son, T.O. Timothy Cavener, married Martha Fugitt and lived all of his life at Union City, in Stone County. He was known as Uncle Tim Cavener. However, my father [Clarence Gold] told me that there were 2 Timothy Caveners at Union City, at the same time. During the Civil War, T.O. Cavener enlisted as T.O. Cavener from Crank, Missouri. It was called Crank, MO., then School, MO. and still later it was called Union City. A man named L.P. Crank, had a store and postoffice about one mile south and about one hundred yards west down the valley. That is where my grandparents; James Harvey Gold and Rozella Minerva Garouotte were married by L.P. Crank, in that grocery store in 1890. He later moved his postoffice and store to what was called Crank, MO. Then they built a schoolhouse, so it was called School, Missouri. Around the turn of the century the school was called the Reynolds School. And finally it was called Union City, that stuck until this day. My dad told me that Uncle Tim Cavener walked with sort of a leaned back limp, and everyone liked him. He also said that Tim Cavener was a tall skinny man. Uncle Tim Cavener and his wife Martha are both buried at the Wise Hill Cemetery, one mile north of Clever, in Christian County, MO.. Their children were:

[1] Nancy Elvaline Cavener, born Oct. 2, 1872, Stone County, Mo. and died Oct. 9, 1951 at Springfield, Missouri.
[2] Sarah F. Cavener, born March 1873, and died in 1959 at Halltown, MO., and buried at Wise Hill, Cemetery,
[3] George Wm. Cavener, born Oct. 22, 1874 Stone County, MO., and died December 1, 1897, buried at Wise Hill, Cemetery.
[4] Malinda Idella Cavener, born Sept. 23, 1876, Stone County, MO., and died October 19, 1966, Springfield, Greene County, MO. She married George W. Wilson.
[5] Albert Cavener, born 1879 and died at about one year of age.

Lucinda Adaline Cavener, was born April 18, 1844 in Marshall County, TN., and died October 29, 1898 in Stone County, MO. She married W.W. White and they are buried in the White Cemetery, 2 miles southeast of Union City, in Stone County, MO. They were the parents of 18 children, including 2 sets of twins. There are many descendants in this area.

Clementine Cavener was born in about 1852 and died in 1950, she is buried in the Crane Cemetery, in Stone county, MO.. She married Jake Saltkill and they have many descendants in this area.
Josephine Cavener, was born December 25, 1855, and died January 6, 1913, and she is buried in Wise Hill Cemetery , in Christian County, MO. She married Berry Damrill, and they had several children.
Rhoda Angeline Cavener, was born in 1859 in Missouri and died August 12, 1942, in Stone County, MO. She married Samuel Saltkill and they also had several children.

By her second marriage, Fanny [Gray] Cavener Maples and her husband Thomas Maples had two children; James S. Maples, and Curtis Maples.
James S. Maples was born in about 1862. He married Sarah E. Ellingsworth of Highlandville, MO. on December 29, 1887. And they had several children.
Curtis Maples was the youngest of the their children of Fanny [Cavener] Maples, he was born in about 1863 he was staying with his mother in the 1900 census of Christian County, and apparently stayed single until his mother died On July 7, 1901. Then he married Rhoda Webb, They are listed in the census of 1910 with several children. James S., and Curtis Maples were half-brothers to the children of Fanny and James Cavener.

NOTEJust a few days before Jack King died, I was at his place, about one mile southeast of Clever. Jack had an old house beside the road, it looked very old, so I asked him who was the last person to live in that old house, he said, Fanny Cavener was the last person to live there, so that is probably where she died, but left no trace of her grave in the local cemeteries. She is the grandmother of many descendants in this area.

THOMAS B. SHORE

THOMAS B. SHORE, of Millikin School District, is the owner of a beautiful and productive tract of 320 acres, on the Saratoga and Alviso Road, about three miles west of Santa Clara. The ranch, which is in a high state of cultivation, is principally devoted to the growing of hay and grain, for which it is well adapted. The proprietor also pays considerable attention to the raising of stock, both horses and cattle. Comfortable and well-ordered buildings, in connection with the general appearance of the ranch, denote a prosperous and successful result that must necessarily attend such intellingent and energetic efforts as have been put forth by its owner.


Mr. Shore was born in Washington County, Missouri, in 1834. His father, Thomas P. Shore, was a native of Kentucky, and his mother, Isabella (Hyde) Shore, of North Carolina. His early life was spent in work on his father's farm, and in receiving such learning as the schools of that new county afforded. In 1850 his father and himself (he being but fifteen years of age) started for California upon the overland trail. The pack train toiled and dragged along its weary journey, unattended by and starling incident, but undergoing the hardships constantly occurring on a trip of that character, until it reached Salt Lake City. Their provisions being exhausted, it was necessary that more should be procured here, and in order to do this the party to which the Shores were attached were forced to seek work from the Mormons, and thus earn the money needed to supply their wants. When leaving Salt Lake City, the company, against the advice of the Mormons, decided to enter California by the southern trail. This portion of their journey was attended by severe hardships and privations. Deep morasses and swamps, rendered almost impassable by rains, rugged mountain trails, swollen streams, and arid deserts devoid of water,---all these obstacles were finally overcome, and the party arrived safely in California, in the year mentioned above. Mr. Shore's previous outdoor life proved of great benefit to him on this expedition, readily enabling him to endure the exposure and hardships.

Soon after their arrival the father and son went to mining in what is now known as Nevada County. Not meeting with satisfactory results, they came into Santa Clara County in the autumn of 1850, and settled in the present Braly School District, about five miles northwest of Santa Clara, thus becoming early pioneers of the county. In 1851 Mr. Shore's father went East by the mail steamers, via the Isthmus route, and returned to California the following year with his family, making his second trip overland. He then settled in Mountain View, in this county, where he resided until his death, which occurred in 1873. The mother died about three years later, and both parents lie in Mountain View Cemetery. It is worthy of notice that both parents of Mr. Shore's wife are also buried in the cemetery. In 1860 Mr. Shore married Miss Agnes O. Bubb, daughter of William Bubb, of Mountain View. Six children have blessed this union, their name and ages (in 1888) being as follows: Paul Henry, twenty-five years of age; Oscar D., twenty years of age; Edith M., seventeeen years of age; Clara B. and Mary A., aged respectively fourteen and ten years.

In the spring of 1818 Ward and his cousin Swift went to Illinois by foot to blaze the way for migration. He returned in the fall of 1818 and married. Then he made a second trip out with his brother, Elon. They bought a drove of sheep in Ohio and drove them to Greene County, Illinois. Then he returned and came out again in March 1820 with his wife and baby and the rest of Eldreds. He lived just west of Carrollton until he sold out to his brother, Elon. He then bought the land under the bluffs where he built a stone barn. He also gave the land for the Eldred cemetery in Bluffdale, Greene County, Illinois. He married four times, each wife dying as a result of child-birth. He himself died of erysipelas contracted while rounding up cattle in the bottoms during a flood.

Ward and his four wives are all buried together at the Eldred cemetery. One tall obelisk marks them all. His children by the last 3 of his4 marriages were actually born at Bluffdale, Illinois, which was the Post Office north of the Eldred place. However, it has passed out of existence, and the Post Office is at the town of Eldred, just south ofthe Eldred place. This town was born in 1880-85 when the L.C.& W. Railroad ran a line west from Litchfield to the Illinois River, and named the station, 3 miles east of the river, Eldred. The little town of 300 has built up around it.

The Kodama family made a visit to Japan in the summer of 1932. With the exception of oldest daughter Fumiko, the family returned to Honolulu, Hawaii, aboard the S.S. President McKinley, departing Kobe, Japan, on 22 August 1932 and arriving Honolulu, Hawaii, on 31 August 1932. Their permanent residence was listed as Wahiawa, Hawaii. The family members included:

Kaoru Kodama, age 44, drug-store keeper, born in Hiroshima, Japan
Mitsu Kodama, age 37, housewife, born in Hiroshima, Japan
Taro Kodama, age 16, student, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii
Kazue Kodama, age 12, student, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii
Suzue Kodama, age 10, student, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii

Sumie Kodama, age 6, student, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii
Nobuo Kodama, age 5, student, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii
Tatsuo Kodama, age 4, child, born in Wahiawa, Hawaii


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Kaoru Kodama moved his entire family from Wahiawa, Hawaii, back to his hometown of Nakatsuwara (near Otake, now called Kono) in the Hiroshima Prefecture of Japan, near Iwakuni, in 1936. Oldest daughter Fumiko returned to Hawaii in 1938 to marry Lawrence Kunihisa. Son Taro Kodama returned to Hawaii on 31 January 1941. The rest of the children, except for Sumie and Muneshige, returned to Wahiawa in 1948, after World War II ended in August 1945. They all lived with the Kunihisa family and were employed in Kunihisa's department store in Wahiawa (Kassler), until they were able to strike out on their own.

During the period that the family was living in Nakatsuwara, their home, which was built on the bank of the adjacent river, was washed away by flood waters. They lost all of their possessions including family photos and momentos.


Several of the Kodama children (Kazue, Suzue, Nobuo and Tatsuo) sailed from Yokohama, Japan, to Honolulu, Hawaii, aboard the ship General G. H. Gordon. They left Yokohama on 30 April 1948 and arrived in Honolulu on 7 May 1948. They listed their home address as P.O. Box 927, Wahiawa, Oahu, Teritory of Hawaii. They said that they had last departed from the United States on 17 June 1936.
