Shelly Mitchell---WHITTLER--March 22, 2006

I am in search of any thing on Mark Whittler from friend, family or anyone.  He was a resident of Pacific county for most of his life.  I also heard he was in the service for a while. He died in a auto accident August 29, 1988 and is buried in Menlo's Fern Hill Cemetery.  I've been told he worked in the woods for many years and enjoyed the social life.  Please if anyone could give me any information on him let me know.


Doris Curry--BOTTOM/STRONG/BOZORTH--March 25, 2006

I am searching for any information on Martin Bottom. I located him in the 1900 census living in the Ilwaco Precinct, Pacific County, Washington. It appears he was living in a rooming house and was employed in the logging industry. His occupation was listed as hook tender. This is the only information I've found of him since the 1880 census.
Martin was born about 1869 in Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon and I believe his birth name was Samuel Martin Bottom. His parents were Joel W. Bottom and Frances Elizabeth Strong. It appears Frances died shortly after Martin's birth as Joel remarried and moved to Clatsop County, Oregon where he died. Frances's parents were Solomon Strong and Mary Ann Bozorth as far as I can determine.

I am researching the name GEHRMAN. The family moved from Wisconsin to the Willapa Valley region in the 1890s.

Edna Jeanette Mills is supposed to have been born on 31 May 1896 (I've seen 30 May, as well) in Pacific, Pacific, Washington.  Parents, Ira Ammon Mills (born in Oregon) and Ruth Woodbury (born in Minnesota). 

I've found Edna in the 1900 Census in Seattle City, King, Washington (under her parents), which verifies the May 1896 birth date.  Ideally, I'd like to get  an image of a birth record, but I'm not sure how to go about that.
