Obituary notice, Town Talk, May 5, 1888,Cynthiana, Kentucky

F. A. Eveleth, died at his home on Pleasant Street, Monday night (April 30, 1888) last of paralysis, aged 76 years. Mr. Eveleth had been treasurer of the Masonic (Blue) Lodge of this city for 31 years, and his funeral took place Wednesday afternoon, conducted by that order. Mr. Eveleth was a true and consistent christian, a member of the Methodist church and his death is a severe loss. He leaves a wife and seven children.


Frederick A. Eveleth, saddler and harness maker; P.O. Cynthiana; was born in Boston, Dec. 13, 1813; son of Isaac and Alma Taggert Eveleth; he, born in Rhode Island Aug. 25, 1779; was a bookkeeper, and died April 4, 1858; she, a native of England, born about 1783, and dying in 1826. They had seven children, three sons and four daughters, all of whom grew to maturity, and all of whom are dead with the exception of Frederick A., our subject, and two sisters.
Mr. Eveleth received his education at New Harmony, Ind., and early learned the trade of saddler. As an incident of interest in the life of our subject, he relates that in 1836, with a friend, he came near losing his life: He and this friend, while crossing a river in New Jersey about dusk, were carried out in the Atlantic by wind and tide, and a storm coming up suddenly, they were tossed about without much ceremony on the part of Old Neputne, but were fortunately cast ashore and were rescued, with what might be termed "fisherman's luck."
Mr. Eveleth, in addition to his regular business of saddle and harness making, has at times kept a grocery, and a livery stable awhile. He is a Mason of long standing and has held the responsible position of Treasurer for twenty-three years, during which time he has handled thousands of dollars and never had a discrepancy of a penny. He has also several times represented his Lodge in the Grand Lodge.
In Ohio, Oct. 22, 1838, he married Miss Hester Ann Hoffner, born in Hamilton County, Ohio, July 13, 1822, daughter of John Hoffner, a native of Maryland, of German descent. Ten children have blessed this union. George, the oldest, was killed in the Confederate army; Francis died in infancy; those living are: Thomas W., John A., Alonzo G., Harriet L., Mary S., Alma T., Ada and Maggie. Himself and wife are Methodists and he is a Democrat.

Ojai Valley News
May 19, 2004


Clare Beatrice Clark Whitley, 80, died in her sleep in the early morning hours Monday, May 10, 2004 in Ashland, Ore. She is the last surviving child of Ojai pioneer Robert E. "Bob" Clark and Alice Barnett Clark.

She was born Oct. 18, 1923 in the old Bard Hospital in Ventura, shortly after her father was elected sheriff of Ventura County. She was raised in Ojai and in Ventura, attending Holy Cross School. The family moved to Pasadena in 1933 when Bob was appointed U. S. marshal for the district of Southern California.

She graduated from St. Andrew's High School in 1941, from St. Vincent's College of Nursing in 1945, and earned her bachelor's and doctorate in nursing from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1966.

While a cadet nurse stationed at Hoff General Hospital in Santa Barbara, she met her future husband, World War II veteran, Harold Whitley. As most wounded soldiers were interested to some degree in the student nurses attending them, it was the better part of valor to check their "credentials." Not only was Sgt. Whitley unmarried, he had earned the Purple Heart with Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster and had a genius IQ. The rest, as they say, is history.

Mrs. Whitley built her nursing experience through the years and by 1959 was director of the Acacias Nursing Home in Ojai. In 1960, at the time Foster Memorial Hospital was undergoing transformation into Community Memorial Hospital, she was integral to the scene as director of staff education and assistant director of nursing. She helped to develop the Nursing Education Program at Ventura County Junior College and served as clinical instructor in the VN program. After moving to Los Angeles in 1964, she enjoyed a distinguished career in industrial nursing at Times-Mirror.

As one interviewer put it, she was "dignified and gracious in bearing, warm and kindly in manner; she represents the nurse of our hopes." In her extended family as well, she was the "official" consultant for all concerns medical. For those in need of mothering, she was mother; for those in need of housing, she was house mother. Her cupboard was as full as her heart; no one left "Auntie" Clare's home hungry.

After retirement in 1992, Mrs. Whitley moved to Talent, Ore. to be near her children.

She is survived by her children, Richard Whitley and wife Joan; Alice Whitley Nagel and husband Jim; grandchildren Brooke, Quinn, Erik and Michelle; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Whitley; brothers Bob, Bill, Ned, and Chet Clark; and sisters Peg Rose and Betty Brand.

Services were held Monday, May 17, 2004, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of the Mountain Catholic Church, Ashland, Ore. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Our Lady of the Mountain Catholic Church, 987 Hillview Drive, Ashland, OR 97520, or a charity of your choice.

On October 11, 2017 at 7:13 pm, Jo Anna Miller went to be with her Lord. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernest Joseph Hamblin (Papa Joe) and Betty Lou Fugitt. She is survived by her husband, Tim Miller; her sister, Jeannie Schenk; her two daughters and their spouses, Wendy and Matt Eytchison, and Hattie Miller and Steve Ward; and her four grandchildren, Joey and Grayson Eytchison, and Molly and Sadie Christensen.
Jo was a woman that understood love on a level much deeper than simply kindness and affection. Not to say that there wasn't an abundance of both of those things. But for those that she loved, which appears to have been in the thousands, her love was brave enough to call out and provide what was needed, not just what was wanted. But to be clear, this woman was more than just loving and nurturing, she was extraordinarily intelligent. Her mind was constantly gathering and processing information from all kinds of sources. I remember when I was little we would go to the library and she would bring home 7 - 10 books. The topics ranged from psychology, fictional entertainment, politics, and medicine and so on. And seven days later she was done and ready to check out more books. Sometimes I wondered if her mind should have been put to bigger use, to serve this world in a bigger capacity. Her father, affectionately called Papa Joe, always thought that she should have been president. As much as I would have loved to see how she would lead a country and how good it would be for everyone, in the last few days it has become clear to me that her mind and her love served this world more than a president could.
Matthew, a disciple of Jesus, quotes Him saying to do merciful deeds without anyone knowing. It is clear that my mom served and loved people from her heart and not for any reward of praise. I believe she did this because she understood loss. I hope that all of us who have been touched by her and feel the great loss of losing her will honor her by loving each other and meeting each other's needs.
Please join us to celebrate her life on Sunday, October 22nd at 1pm at The Views RV Park, located at 24990 Hwy 184. We will be serving spaghetti lunch in honor of the countless spaghetti lunches she fed her family and friends every Sunday after church.

On December 12, 1891 she was united in marriage to Erick Nelson of Cherokee, Ia. There they made their home for 20 years. Mr. Nelson worked at the tailor’s trade.

In the spring of 1911 they settled on a farm near Larrabee, Ia., and remained for two years. In 1913 they moved to a farm near Holstein, Ia., where they resided at the time of Mr. Nelson’s death in the year of 1929. In 1933 Mrs. Nelson and children moved to a farm north of Cherokee where they lived until last spring when they moved to a farm southeast of Merrill where they resided at the time of Mrs. Nelson’s death.

She was the mother of six children, two of whom preceded her in death. She had been in poor health for the past two years but on the morning of February 23 became suddenly worse, death being caused by a stroke. Even though loving hands and kind friends did all they could to relieve the suffering and earnestly hoped that health would again be restored, she died at 3:30 o’clock on Friday morning, February 23, 1945, having reached the age of 78 years, three months and 23 days.

She was a good wife, a kind and loving mother and a patient sufferer, never complaining the least. Her departure is mourned by three sons, Elmer of Cherokee, Homer at home, Pfc. Richard in the armed forces overseas and one daughter, Edith at home; one grandchild, Eva Sharon Kay Nelson of Cherokee; three sisters, Mrs. M. T. Johnson of George, Ia., Mrs. P. M. Peterson of Cherokee, Mrs. Gust Swanberg of Kingsley, Ia.; two brothers, Emil Olson of Meriden, Ia., and Alfred Olson of Larrabee, besides a host of other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon, February 27, with a short service at the home and 2:30 at the Methodist church at Cherokee. Rev. Wilken of Merrill, was in charge, assisted by Rev. A. G. Peterson of Cherokee. The remains were tenderly bedded in the Oak Hill cemetery at Cherokee; there to sleep until the final day of resurrection.

The pallbearers were six nephews: Ervin Olson of Larrabee, Oscar Swanberg of Kingsley, Orrie Johnson of George, Carl Peterson of Cherokee, Ben Olson of Meriden, and Einar Nelson of Cherokee.

The floral tributes were many and beautiful, testifying that one had left our midst who was honored and loved by everybody.
May God grant peace and everlasting happiness to the departed soul, and may His star of consolation shine into the bleeding hearts of those who suffered this great loss.

“Where the mountains slant to the westward
And their purple chalices hold
The new made wine of the sunset
Crimson and amber and gold ---
In this old wide opened doorway,
With the elm boughs overhead –
The house all garnished behind her,
And the plentiful table spread –
She has stood to welcome our coming,
Watching our upward climb,
In the sweet summer weather that brought us,
O, Many and many a time!
Again the doorway is opened,
And the house is garnished and sweet;
But she silently waits for our coming;
And we enter with silent feet.
A little within she is waiting,
Not where she has met us before;
For over the pleasant threshold
She has only to cross once more.
The smile on her face is quiet;
And a lily is on her breast,
Her hands are folded together,
And the word on her lips is “rest.”
And yet it looks like a welcome,
For her work is completed and done;
All things are seemly and ready,
And her summer has just begun.
It is we who may not cross over,
Only with song and prayer,
A little way into ‘glory,’
We may reach as we leave her there.
But we cannot think of her idle.
She must be a home-maker still;
God giveth that work to the Angels
Who fittest the task fulfill;
And somewhere, yet in the hilltops
Of the country that has no pain,
She will watch in her beautiful doorway
To bid us a welcome again."

We wish to express our appreciation and heartfelt thanks to all who so kindly assisted us during the sickness and death of our loved one for their kindness bestowed upon us and those who remembered our beloved with so many beautiful flowers.

Obituary of Joseph A. Newman, Sr.
Born 1 Jan 1816 in Germany, died 19 Aug 1901. This is taken from the newspaper "Mountain Echo" in Boulder Creek, California; 24 Aug 1901; page 2, col. 2

As presaged by an item in these columns last week, Joseph August Newman, full of years and like the ripening grain falling before the sickle, has been gathered to his fathers.
He passed peacfully to rest at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jacob Hartman, at about 9 o'clock last Monday morning, at the age of 84 years, 7 months and 19 days, he having suffered for almost a year with that terrible disease, cancer of the stomach, and only finding relief at last in death.
The funeral took place Wednesday from the home to St. Michael's church, where high requiem mass of the dead was celebrated by Rev. Father G. Leggio of Mountain View, assisted by Mrs. Cora Smith of this place, who presided at the organ and rendered several beautiful hymns. At the conclusion of the services the funeral cortege was formed and took its way by carriage to Santa Cruz, where the last rites were said and the remains deposited in the Catholic cemetery, beside those of his aged wife, who preceded him to the last home but a few years ago. The pall bearers were: S.H. Rambo, A.M. Fraser, John Glass, J.M. Chandler, W.H. Dool and Patrick Patton.
Joseph A. Newman Sr. Was a native of Germany but also a pioneer of California, having had the courage to make his way here from his native land in 1850. He tried the mines for a time, but soon settled down in the Santa Clara valley, when it was little else than a cattle range. In the early sixties he was married to Miss Catherine Kennedy at San Jose. For many years he resided at Mayfield, where the most of his children were born. Later he lived at the old Page mill in Alpine district and afterward on the Martin O'Connor ranch in the same locality. In 1890 he removed with his family to Boulder Creek, where he has since resided and where his wife died about two years ago. Since the death of his wife he has made his home with his eldest daughter, Mrs. Jacob Hartman.
Mr. Newman was a good citizen, always gererous and kindly hearted. His life was one of industry, sobriety and strict attention to his own affairs, and as such he was content to do his duty, even though it led in the quiet, lowlier walks of life. He leaves as his monument a family of seven sturdy sons and daughters - all good citizens, and a worthy bequest to the world.

PFC US Army Company F, 508th Paratroop Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 82nd Airborne
Killed in Action - D Day Invasion 9 July 1944 Le Havre, Departement de la Seine-Maritime, Haute-Normandie, France


World War II
Initial training and conversion
The 82nd Division was re-designated on 13 February 1942 during World War II, just two months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the German declaration of war, as Division Headquarters, 82nd Division. It was recalled to active service on 25 March 1942, and reorganized at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, under the command of Major General Omar Bradley. During this training period, the division brought together four officers who would ultimately steer the U.S. Army during the following two decades: Matthew Ridgway, Matthew D. Query, James M. Gavin, and Maxwell D. Taylor. Under Major General Bradley, the 82nd Division's Chief of Staff was George Van Pope.
On 15 August 1942, the 82nd Infantry Division, now commanded by Major General Ridgway, became the first airborne division in the history of the U.S. Army, and was re-designated as the 82nd Airborne Division. The division initially consisted of the 325th, 326th and 327th Infantry Regiments, and supporting units. The 327th was soon transferred to help form the 101st Airborne Division and was replaced by the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, leaving the division with two regiments of glider infantry and one of parachute infantry. In February 1943 the division received another change when the 326th was later transferred, being replaced by the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, under James M. Gavin, then a colonel, who was later destined to command the division.

Sicily and Italy
In April 1943, after several months of tough training, its troopers deployed to the Mediterranean Theater of Operations, under the command of Major General Ridgway to take part in the campaign to invade Sicily. The division's first two combat operations were parachute assaults into Sicily on 9 July and Salerno on 13 September 1943. The initial assault on Sicily, by the 505th Parachute Regimental Combat Team, under Colonel Gavin, was the first regimental-sized combat parachute assault conducted by the United States Army. The first glider assault did not occur until Operation Neptune as part of the D-Day landings of June 6, 1944. Glider troopers of the 319th and 320th Glider Field Artillery Battalions and the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment (and the 3rd Battalion of the 504th PIR) instead arrived in Italy by landing craft at Maiori (319th) and Salerno (320th, 325th).
In January 1944, the 504th, commanded by Colonel Reuben Tucker, which was temporarily detached to fight at Anzio, adopted the nickname "Devils in Baggy Pants", taken from an entry in a German officer's diary. The 504th was replaced in the division by the inexperienced 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment, under the command of Colonel George V. Millet, Jr.. While the 504th was detached, the remainder of the 82nd Airborne Division moved to the United Kingdom in November 1943 to prepare for the liberation of Europe. See RAF North Witham and RAF Folkingham.

With two combat drops under its belt, the 82nd Airborne Division was now ready for the most ambitious airborne operation of the war so far, as part of Operation Neptune, the Allied invasion of Normandy. The division conducted Mission Boston, part of the airborne assault phase of the Operation Overlord plan.
In preparation for the operation, the division was significantly reorganized. To ease the integration of replacement troops, rest, and refitting following the fighting in Italy, the 504th PIR did not rejoin the division for the invasion. Two new parachute infantry regiments (PIRs), the 507th and the 508th, provided it, along with the veteran 505th, a three-parachute infantry regiment punch. The 325th was also reinforced by the addition of the 3rd Battalion of the 401st GIR, bringing it up to a strength of three battalions.
On 5 and 6 June, these paratroopers, parachute artillery elements, and the 319th and 320th, boarded hundreds of transport planes and gliders to begin history's largest airborne assault at the time (only Operation Market Garden later that year would be larger). During the 6 June assault, a 508th platoon leader, First Lieutenant Robert P. Mathias, would be the first U.S. Army officer killed by German fire on D-Day. On 7 June, after this first wave of attack, the 325th GIR would arrive by glider to provide a division reserve.
In Normandy, the 82nd gained its first Medal of Honor of the war, belonging to Private First Class Charles N. DeGlopper of the 325th GIR. By the time the division was relieved, in early July, the 82nd had seen 33 days of severe combat and casualties had been heavy. Losses included 5,245 troopers killed, wounded, or missing, for a total of 46% casualties. Major General Ridgway's post-battle report stated in part, "... 33 days of action without relief, without replacements. Every mission accomplished. No ground gained was ever relinquished."
Following Normandy, the 82nd Airborne Division returned to England to rest and refit for future airborne operations. The 82nd became part of the newly organized XVIII Airborne Corps, which consisted of the 17th, 82nd, and 101st Airborne Divisions. Ridgway was given command of the corps, but was not promoted to lieutenant general until 1945. His recommendation for succession as division commander was Brigadier General James M. Gavin, previously the 82nd's ADC. Ridgway's recommendation met with approval, and upon promotion Gavin became the youngest general since the Civil War to command a U.S. Army division.

Some of his children changed the name to Purvines after they came to Illinois . I believe his land records is under Purviance. And he is also listed in 1876 as Purviance in the "HISTORY OF THE EARLY SETTLERS OF SANGAMON COUNTY, ILLINOIS" By John Carroll Power. (Some of His children are listed as Purvines).
These are the reasons I listed him as Purviance as that is what he would have been during the Rev. War.

PURVIANCE, JOHN, was born June 19, 1760. The place of his birth is not known, but he went from Pennsylvania to the vicinity of Concord, Cabarras county, North Carolina. He was a soldier in the colonial army that achieved American Independence, but whether he went from Pennsylvania or North Carolina is not known.
A special monument, commemorating his services in the Revolution, has been placed at the entrance to Richland cemetery and the DAR have placed a bronze plaque at the grave site. His name is also inscribed on the bronze plaque in the south mall, Old Station Capital, at Springfield, Illinois

In the summer of 1779, during the Revolutionary War, he volunteered for 13 months as a horseman under Captain James Wade, attached to a Regiment commanded by Colonel Davis. They marched across the Congaree, Wateree and Santee Rivers into South Carolina where the militia of North Carolina was assembling under General Rutherford of that state. The Regiment took part in the severe conflict with the British at Stono Ferry, S.C., on July 20 1779, under General Lincoln. Soon afterward, the army retreated to the northward.

In August, 1780, he again volunteered as a Private Horseman under Captain William Penny, attached to the army of young General Gates at Lynch's Creek, marching two miles beyond Rugby's Mill toward Camden and was in a fight with the enemy which probably occurred Dec 4, 1780. He was present at the capture of the fort at Orangeburg, S.C., in May, 1781, and he served in the rear guard for two days and nights, after which he was detailed with four others, including the Quartermaster Sergeant, to a mill to procure meal. While there, they were surrounded by a detachment of Tories. He was the only one who evaded capture which he managed to do by jumping from a window into the river and swimming away. He was wounded and lost his horse and saddle in the skirmish.

In July, 1781, he again enlisted in the State Troops for 10 months under Captain William Alexander, attached to the Regiment of Colonel Wade Hampton of S.C., in the forces of General Sumpter. He participated in the Battle of Eutaw Springs, S.C., September 8, 1781. The following year, he volunteered again in Mecklenberg Co., NC for 10 months with Captain Burns in the Regiment of Colonel Davis and was engaged in that County on patrol duty, watching the movements of the Tories and protecting the inhabitants from marauding parties. At the close of the war, he was mustered out, having served the greater part of five years. He was later granted a pension for this service.
Purviance From "Catawba Frontier 1775-1781 Memories of Pensioners" by Mary Elinor Lazenby, 1950:
PURVIANCE, JOHN 1778-1779. Served two months in South Carolina under Col. Wade Hampton and General Thomas Sumter. Was at taking of Fort of Orangeburg, a private in the company of Capt. William Alexander and Maj. James Rutherford (a son of General Rutherford), who fell at Eutaw Springs. Volunteered under Capt. James White, Colonel Davie. Was at Stono. When General Greene retreated from Ninety-Six (begun June 19, 1781) Purviance was with his rearguard two days and two nights. While sent with four other privates to a mill to get meal he was fired on by the Tories. The sergeant was wounded. The rest escaped but Purviance lost his horse, saddle and bridle. Born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 1763. Brought to Mecklenburg County (NC) when twelve years old. Later they moved to Cabarrus County, North Carolina, where his brother Robert remained. He moved to Sangamon County, Illinois, in 1820. He was wounded and applied for relief under the invalid pension act of Mar. 18, 1818.

As early as 1817, certain children commenced migrating to Illinois.
Dec. 15,1819 John sold his farm of 319 acres on WILD MEADOW BRANCH in North Carolina to Phillip Barringer for $4700. Shortly thereafter he left North Carolina. He visited relatives in Jackson, Tennessee for a brief time and arrived in Illinois in 1820. All his children except Matilda came to Illinois. Several Nephews and cousins migrated to Illinois during the same period. Also at least two sisters, Margaret, and Martha. Margaret went later to Iowa, and Martha to Missouri. John remained in Sangamon County until his death and is buried in Richland Baptist Cemetery (between , Salisbury and Pleasant Plains, Illinois) beside his wife, Elizabeth.
Richland cemetery is a family cemetery. Many, many of the early family are buried there. Others are at the cemetery inside the town of Pleasant Plains. Others are buried though- out many cemeteries around Pleasant Plains and Salisbury.
