"I’m Making Every Effort to Preserve" DOROTHY LEAKE’S LOVE FOR THE OZARKS


"I think I’m fortunate to have my retirement here. I like to do lots of things outdoors," said the spry eighty-six years young doctor of freshwater biology, Dorothy V. Leake. Dr. Leake, being very interested in conserving and preserving the flora and fauna of the Ozarks, has been interested in many projects since her retirement in 1959. Probably most important to her is her efforts to slow down some of the detrimental ecological changes she sees occurring all over the Ozarks. "One of the changes going on I’m actively involved in is preserving the wildlife which would all be gone from here–the fish all gone from the stream and the animals would be gone. All the things that grow here would be killed. I have ‘coons and ‘possums come up to the back door and eat whatever I put out for them at night. People don’t pay very much attention to the environment as much as they talk about it. They don’t really try to preserve it." Dr. Leake lives on a wooded acreage devoted to conservation. Since their retirement, she and her husband have established a freshwater biology station with their chief goal being to research the wildlife while it is still there and preserve as much as possible all aspects of Crane Creek and its adjacent areas. Since her husband’s death in 1978, she has continued this work alone. "I haven’t time to get lonely,” she said, "I’m busy all the time. Of course, I’m lonely for my husband. He was a great companion. We did everything together." Crane Creek, a tributary of the James River, runs through her property, giving her a natural laboratory right beside her house where she can do her research. "The creek rises at the railroad at the corner of our place. Years ago they made an embankment for the railroad by shooting off the face of the bluff. The spring which had come out at the base of the bluff managed to penetrate the embankment and is still the head of Crane Creek. "Streams like this one are all diminishing in size. They’re becoming polluted and not as useful as they once were. So, I had the idea of doing research here. I have done all the biological research that has been done here and published some papers, but there is a lot of work that could still be done. With so many members of the animal and plant kingdoms, it is an inexhaustible study which I think ought to be recorded before the stream deteriorates as it’s bound to do in this day and age. "Above and beyond that I enjoy living here very much. I have never lived anywhere I liked as much as I like the Ozarks. I think it’s a special section of the country that’s ideal."


I was born in Columbus Junction, Iowa, in 1893. That’s a town close to the Mississippi River in a wooded area where there were lots of these pretty spring flowers everyone loves so much. I got my first experience with nature there. At the turn of the century, when I was seven years old, my father, who was a lawyer, moved his family from the hills, streams and woods of southeastern Iowa to the prairies and granite mountains of the southwest corner of Oklahoma. The country was quite different there. We lived in a town called Granite. It was called this because it was at the end of the Wichita range which is just piles of red granite rising right up out of the prairie with no foothills at all. Of course, there was a lot of vegetation all over between the rocks, but the rocks were the most prominent things about the mountains. We lived halfway up one of the mountains which was only about 800 feet high. There was a spring on a level place at the middle of the mountain, and we had two houses we lived in. In one house we had the living room and bedrooms, and in the other house we had a kitchen, dining room and storeroom. They must have been a hundred feet apart, so we had to run from one place to the other. Since there were pretty little clear streams that ran down the mountains, it was a great place to study nature. The game hadn’t been shot out of the country as it has now. There were lots of different kinds of western type animals like lizards and snakes that lived on the mountains. Lots of rabbits, too. When I went to college in Springfield at Drury College, in 1910, the country in the Ozarks was so much like the country in Iowa I had liked a great deal that I really felt at home here, more so than in arid Oklahoma. I liked the climate and wildlife so much better. I had a chance to study biology in school, developed in that line still more and took my bachelor’s degree and the year after that my master’s degree. That was 1914 and 1915. Then after a period of teaching years, a college romance resulted in marriage in 1919 to Harold Henderson Leake, a teacher of piano and voice. Our first seven years of married life were spent on this place where I now live. When our daughter was born, my father came up from western Oklahoma to see his new grandchild, and he was so taken with the water and the trees and all the wildlife, he decided he’d just get out and buy a place while he was up here. He was a lawyer, and he wanted to move his other son-in-law up here to start a practice. My husband and I knew about this place and had been here and sat on that ledge of rock down there at the corner and wished that we could live in a place like this. We directed him to this place, and he fell in love with it, too, and bought it. Then he couldn’t persuade his other son-in-law to come up here at all because he liked the prairies better. So he asked us if we would come down here to live, which we did. Our daughter, Marcelotte, and son, Benjamin, were born here where the family enjoyed the country life. We supplemented the music teaching income with general farming–we had a garden, pigs, chickens and cows. This was our first experience with farming, either one of us. We just fell right into it, loved it, but we couldn’t make a living at it. The children had a Shetland pony, although she was definitely not a producer of anything but amusement. I taught my daughter by the Calvert school method so much used at that time by foreign missionary parents. When she was ready for the third grade, we moved to Aurora and I conducted a kindergarten with my five year old son as one of the "kinders." Next year came the chance to teach in the newly organized Junior College at Monett. Mr. Leake was head of the music department and I head of the science department. There was a time in the late 20’s when they organized junior colleges in this area. This school has since closed. They didn’t keep it up more than fifteen years, I think. Henderson Leake was involved in several vocations, including teaching music, broadcasting and preaching. After five years of this pleasant work we were offered attractive positions in Oklahoma. Mr. Leake became director of Educational Radio at the university of Oklahoma at Norman, and later at Oklahoma State University at Stillwater. I taught botany at both these schools. I was fifty years old when I took my doctorate degree at the University of

Oklahoma in ’44, taking my degree at the same time my son took his bachelor’s degree. They weren’t so particular then about how old you were, but I believe you had to do more work then than you do now. After acquiring the doctoral degree, I became head of the biology department of Southeastern State university at Durant. We built this house in ’51. The house on the hill my grandchildren live in is the house that was on the place when we moved here. We lived in it seven years. My husband was for many years the director of Educational Radio at the University of Oklahoma and at Stillwater State University. He was at both those schools, as I was. His radio name was Henderson Leake because Henderson sounded better than Harold in broadcasting. He had a commercial program with KWTO [Springfield, Missouri] for almost three years. They called it "Between the Windows." He wrote his broadcast between the windows in the living room here. He did this for Producers’ Creamery. It was a program of general events, historical matters, weather and nature things. He described, for instance, what he saw out the window. He could see what was going on in the creek and something goes on every day that’s interesting. The kingfishers were flying up and down the creek or the muskrats were swimming around. When retirement time came, my versatile husband became a priest of the Episcopal Church, working mostly in the churches of northern Arkansas. We had four trips abroad. The first was to Canterbury, England, where we attended a summer session of theology lectures at St. Augustine’s College. The

second was to attend the performances of Wagner’s Four Ring Operas at Bayreuth, after which we toured Europe in a VW camper bus– especially visiting the cathedrals of England. The third trip was to spend fall and winter in the Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen (and the modern John Fowles) country of Dorset. The fourth trip was when my husband exchanged pulpits with an Anglican priest for three summer months. Mr. Sims of Haxey, Lincolnshire, England, came to my husband’s church in Idabel, Oklahoma, while my husband had charge of St. Nicholas’ church at Haxey. All these years since we left the farm for teaching positions, the homing instinct has brought us back as often as possible. In 1951 we built our retirement home and prepared to carry on our conservation and research activities here. The place is a natural for such work. It is an old grist mill site on the headwaters of Crane Creek. The Wissman Mill was not in use when we had come here in the 20’s but was still standing until the 1940’s. Crane Creek is very rich in all kinds of plant and animal life, so rich that it would take years to study it completely. It’s one of the few streams left in the Ozarks that is not badly polluted. There are so many streams being polluted by town sewage and dump places that plants and animals cannot live in them. We have offered the use of the station to the schools of the area interested in doing biological research here. The professors are younger than I am and they can get out and do the field work better than I can now. So I’m going to kind of turn it over to them. I’m expecting them to do some work. My own research has

been on the ecology, physiology and taxonomy of algae. We call our acres on the creek The Freshwater Biology Station. It is also a wildlife refuge, teeming with all sorts of flora and fauna. There are plants of great variety and beauty. Some of the animals are ground hogs, muskrats, chipmunks, many kinds of mice, skunks, ‘coons, squirrels and beavers. More than a hundred species of birds have been recorded at the station. Many kinds of fish live in the stream, trout, bass, perch and pickerel, and there are other aquatic vertebrates and innumerable invertebrates. Our aim is to preserve the station in as natural a state as possible, and to protect it from the destructive impact of so-called civilization. We want it to be useful to researchers and helpful to groups like the girl scouts and the biology classes in the schools of the surrounding towns. What my ambition is with respect to my research is to have a record of this kind of clear creek, which is getting rare in Missouri. Because I feel it is impossible for things not to change, as change is a rule of life, my work will be to make some record of what it was like, a history of it, as it goes ahead with these changes that are inevitable. Another motive I have is to make the place as useful as possible to people, not just to sit here and live as a selfish individual, but to share it with people and have them learn about it and enjoy it, too.

Thomas came to this country in 1818. After he married Elizabeth, about the first thing he did was buy a house and a few acres of land. The fact that the house was log did not matter, the five oldest children were born there. The thing of interest is he bought a home, and in September 1834 he lost it all because of a tannery venture. He gathered up all he had and made the trek to Mecca OH where he at once bought a home only to sell it in 1837 when he moved to Wethersfield (Niles). Here again a home was purchased and later after a year spent on the Gill Farm, the old farm was bought and the family moved on it in 1839, final payment and deed given in 1842. Born to them were:

From Milton Ferris Reunion text written by Charles W. Ferris 1934

"It was thought best for lack of time in this historical sketch not to go farther into detail of more than the first and second generation. Although much might be written of the third and fourth generation, now much in evidence, I am making one exception because of outstanding achievement by one of the great grand-children, Charlotte Belknap Reynolds, daughter of Giles and Lula Belknap, who has for many years been a missionary in China, and the letter from which I quote becomes a part of this sketch as follows: "Charlotte and Paul Reynolds went out under the American Board in 1921 to Fenchow (Pronounced fun-jo) China. They will soon be closing their second term and are to return for a third term. Charlotte has helped in very many ways in the mission work, has taught Domestic Science and written a textbook on that subject in Chinese. She manages the music program for church and schools, and has a school in her own home for her own children and some of the children of the other missionaries. Dr. Paul Reynolds is Assistant to the Chinese Principal of the Ming I School (a large school for Chinese boys and girls of High School age), all Chinese schools, now by law having native Principals. ‘ "Paul is also Director of a large Civic Center work which last year celebrated its tenth anniversary, and at that time was taken over by the national Y.M.C.A. He was elected head of the Religious Educational Work of all north China. Charlotte and Paul have three children. They plan to come home in 1935 for their second furlough."

( MARGARET KNOWLTON BELKNAP born October 19, 1897 Cook Co IL and died August 1983 Berea KY; married John Milton Allen [son of William Ervin & Catherine Alice (Benner) Allen] born July 23, 1896 Byron Township, Kent MI and died November 1937.

Margaret Belknap Allen, in her early years, moved into the world of music in a natural creative way. Previous to any professional training, at the age of five, she was improvising on the piano, intuitively expressing four part harmony, and rounding out the tonal meanderings with a certain amount of phrase form. Fortunately her first teacher, the then noted Mrs. Crosby Adams of Chicago, was a pioneer in the imaginative and creative approach to music training. This, of course, nurtured the child’s inherent urge, so that soon after her lessons began she startled her father (sitting next to her in church) by singing the harmonic structure of the hymns rather than the words. “Quiet now” he would whisper. Later, at the age of ten, she organized a club in Oak Park, where she lived, teaching her interested peers to improvise. Oberlin College and the University of Wisconsin left their strengthening stamp upon her: but she was always haunted by the wonderment of “why music moved as it did?” “what was the inner necessity that made the rules of music effective?” The casual answers never seemed to satisfy her. While she was teaching Interpretive Dance and Drama in Evanston, she met Martha Russell and became acquainted with the Creative Motion principle with its necessity of involving the whole self in order to experience the needs of the music. At last dance, drama, rhythm, melody and harmony all moved together in a wholeness of expression. After marrying John Milton Allen they moved to Scarsdale, New York. Here she taught in her private studio for sixteen years, inspiring the students to hear inside that which the music actually wanted them to hear on the outside. The response and the results justified the approach. Following the death of her husband, and after her daughter and son had left home for their further education, she chose to transplant herself to a college campus where the student’s background was different from those of Westchester, Berea College invited her to teach in the Music Department where she has taught for twenty five years, interrupted only in order to get her Master’s degree at Stanford University. She eventually became professor of Humanities and Piano, but it was always the Creative Motion principle that guided her teaching. As a little Scarsdale boy once said to her: “I hope you never die” she realized that those who truly experience Creative Motion gain something “which makes all of the difference” not only to their music, but to their selfhood. Margaret donated a Holtkamp Organ to the Berea College’s music department. Born to them were:

Gates born February 19, 1855 Clinton Junction WI and died June 22, 1915. Mary was educated at Milton College where she met Charles. Charles is known as the President and one of three founder of the Creamery Package, and later Creamery Packing Manufacturing Company – the leading dairy equipment manufacturer and supplier in the US, based primarily in the Midwest but with offices from the west coast to the east coast and England as well. Charles was educated at Milton College, BA 1876, MA 1879. It was several years after they were married that Mary’s extensive number of brothers and sisters and brother-in-laws were integral in the formation of the company and its continuation until after WWII. Charles originally taught school in Wyoming, Minnesota; Waupaca and Berlin WI; operated a lumber yard at Clinton Junction WI; he was going into the egg-packing business with his brother-in-law, William Lewis Ferris, when Charles came up with the brain storm of establishing the butter tub manufacturing business in 1883. The Creamery Package Manufacturing Co emerged from that start in 1887.

( WILLIAM LEWIS FERRIS (Will) born September 5, 1856 Johnstown, Rock, WI and died March 14, 1910 Portland, Jay, IN; married June 30, 1885 in Hornellsville NY, Carrie Minerva Hakes [dau of Harlo & Mary (Chandler) Hakes] born August 23, 1859 Hornellsville/Hornell, Steuben, NY and died September 22, 1947 Lakewood OH; both buried Green Park Cemetery, Portland IN. William was a good writer of poetry and letter. He had a smooth way with words; especially with his girlfriends and wife Carrie. He met Carrie when he was a student at Milton College and she was a music instructor there, he was taking vocal lessons from her. When he was lonely he wrote beautiful letters to Carrie before and after they were married. He was an excellent singer, loved to recite Shakespeare even in later years when, much to the embarrassment of his children, would come to school and give recitations. He loved to play baseball, he caught with no glove and as a result injuried his fingertips and had to stop earlier than he wished to, so he switched to pitching. Later, he bought the town team of Portland their uniforms on the condition that they not play baseball on Sundays. Will had a thriving egg-packing business in Milton WI. During that time, fresh eggs were not readily available during the harsh Midwestern winters. ‘Ferris bought eggs from the farmers when eggs were plentiful and cheap, pickled them in brine to be marketed in the fall and winter, when supply and demand conditions were reversed.’ The egg business was to be expanded by a branch in the Peoria IL area by his brother-in-law Charles M. Gates. Enroute to select a site, Gates met up with Mr. Matt Corcoran and Gates had the brainstorm for the beginnings of the Creamery Package Manufacturing Company (CPMC). On January 12, 1883, an Illinois charter was granted to Charles M. Gates, William L. Ferris, Hiram J. Ferris, and Edward Kimball for the Creamer Package Company and that place of business was White Rock IL. Will is credited with naming the company. The object was ‘The manufacturer and sale of butter tubs, cheese boxes, and cooperage.’ One of the original founders of the CPMC, he was Secretary and Superintendent of the Rock Falls IL plant by 1884. The company sold wholesale supplies to creameries and stores, things like testing equipment and dairy cooperage supplies. Will later headed up the Portland IN branch, 1891 until he retired early in 1910. Butter tubs were manufactured for several years even after his early death in 1910 (Cerebral Hemorrhage). Some of his sons worked at that plant part time as well. The business remained in the hands of various family members until after WWII. The plant still exists today (2004) in Portland on the corner of Ash Street and the railroad. It is now an O Cedar broom manufacturing plant. William seemed to have caught the bug of the early automobile. He had a personal connection with Elwood Haynes of the Haynes Automobile fame in Portland and Kokomo IN. Photos exist that show him in a 1904 Haynes car and he was driving James Whitcomb Riley, the Indiana poet. There is another photo that shows him in front of his Arch Street home with a 1907 Haynes touring car. He would remove the windshields from the cars – ‘because, I don’t want to pay all that money and not feel the wind!’ The home on Arch Street has been refurbished and the current occupant has graciously provided a copy – see photo – thanks to Mike Szakaly; Carrie was an accomplished soloist and pianist. She trained as a concert soloist under William Hall Sherwood at the New England Conservatory of Music. She would later play both the piano and organ for family, community and church functions. Carrie taught vocal music at Fairbough MN Girls School; and Milton College. Before and after William died, she taught piano in Portland IN. Born to them were:

( HARLO HAKES FERRIS (Rev) born April 9, 1886 Whitewater WI and died May 1, 1983 Wild Rose, Waushara, WI; married 1st June 18, 1919 in Bombay, India Reubey Statira Ferris (; married 2d 1960 in Iowa, Carrie Tate Lieffering born 1886 Portland IN and died 1969 WI. When Harlo and Reubey returned to the US having gotten married without officially meeting Reubey’s parents, they traveled to see Reubey’s mother – Reubey. Upon seeing her new son-in-law for the very first time, she greeted him with the warm welcome of ‘Wipe your feet’ – a foretelling greeting of the times to come. Harlo worked in the Kokomo IN Haynes auto plant, a wood-working factory, YMCA overseas as a mission director for the British troops during and after WWI, Congregational minister. He lived in various parts of the US and overseas: Whitewater WI, Milton WI; Portland IN, Malta MT (owned a motorcycle there to go from parish to parish); Lake Geneva WI; California (Pomona) and Ohio (Oberlin) for college work; Bombay and Kashmir Province, India; Church parishes in WI – Walworth, Rio, Hartford, Baraboo, Boscobel, Hancock, Wild Rose, Sauk City and Rockford MI. Both Harlo and Reubey buried Hancock Cemetery, Hancock, Waushara, WI (Photo)

"Harlo Hakes Ferris – December 18, 1969"

Here begins something the end of which time only will tell – the story of my life – the remembered past, that which has been glued to my memory and which I think had value or at least durability. Carefully reviewed it might be tiresome long; prudently pruned someone might patiently peruse the effort. Here goes!

To set the picture in time ancestry should enter quietly from the right or left wings – Here come a solemn figure even now…Listen.

The Mother’s side of the picture is called HAKES – Hakes were mainly of English stock (with a Hakes genealogical book I will add more in time. The name HAKES, evidently refers to the hake fish so presumably in the earliest days there was some connection of people with fishes. These people evidently settled early in New England, originally farmers; in my mother’s day many of them were lawyers and judges – I have run across them in Montana and Wisconsin, altho the name is not very common.

FERRIS – is evidently an English name altho that name may be a corruption of some other. If I find out later, I will add a not to this effect. It would seem that the people first bearing that name had something to do with iron- perhaps they were iron workers of some sort.

The Ferris from which this humble subject came arrived in Wisconsin, Milton to be exact about 150 years ago – early history of this will be added later- William Peck Ferris, the patriarch came to Milton by way of Chicago and Milwaukee by canal and wagon. There he married …. Janes, related to the founders of Janesville. This family had….. children, Molly, Ellen, Bessie, Will, Charles, Charlotte, Hiram and ….. As they grew up and married they gravitated into salesmen, clergymen, professors, doctors, missionaries, but mainly business mangers – no farmers.

William Peck Ferris was much interested in education – a member of Milton School Board and I understand the man who planted the trees on the school yard. His eight children all went to Milton College, a Seventh Day Baptist College, then as now an excellent institution.

William Lewis Ferris on of these sons was my father, living on to 1909, when he died in Portland, Indiana – My mother was Carrie Minerva Hakes, who came to Milton College as a supply [?] music instructor. She was a talented, vivacious out going, young lady with a large retinue of admiring young men, whom she did not rebuff. Eventually she settled on this Will Ferris and they were married at the Congregational church in Milton Wisconsin.

My father and his cousin Bert Walker set themselves in business in an egg packing concern right in Milton. Along about that same time other brothers and brother-in-laws were gravitating towards the business and manufacturing world and in time organized the Creamery Package Manufacturing Co. which became a huge company, a leader in this line of manufacturing. Aside from a few years on a farm, my father was connected with this firm as plant manager and superintendent all of his life.

However, after his marriage he bought a farm near Whitewater and lived there for several years. I born there on April 9, 1886 and lived there for several years, I do not know how many. I remember absolutely nothing about life there altho I know that my mother, brought up in small city swirls[?] and social contacts was far from at ease in the rugged life of an early Wisconsin farm.

In about my fourth, fifth year, I do know that I was sent back to be with my Hakes grandparents in Hornellsville, NY. From there on my memories came into being and I had many delightful times [there] on Elm Street. In 1968, seventy two year I returned, and ?strange? to [say?] identified the old red brick house immediately.

My grandfather, Judge Harlo Hakes, after whom I was named was an important man in the community and his home was a social center. I remember the faces of many people, my aunt Evelyn Brown, my cousins the Dennis Family, who grew up to be very distinguished people [grandchildren of Judge Harlo Hakes’ sister Minerva Hakes Bennet, her daughter Florence’s]. I remember the kindergarten in a first [?] home and the 1st grade in the public school. I remember walking trips with my grandfather into the hills. I remember a fire close to our house and many and many small incidents. I still can see them clearly.

My father at about that time was superintendent of small manufacturing plants of CPMfgCo at Mason City Iowa and Morrison Illinois and strange to say I can remember not a single incident from either town. In 1892 we moved to Portland Indiana and there I lived until 1903 and my family for 6 years more. [1910] In Portland we lived in four different houses, each time moving up the social scale until we finished with one of the nicest homes in the city of 6,000 people. We were of the Presbyterian faith then altho my father was originally Congregationalist and my mother an Episcopalian.

My father was 6 ft in height, a strong, powerful man, who played first base and pitched without a glove. He loved the game and went so far as to give the town team its uniforms on condition that they would not play ball on Sunday. He had a delightful tenor voice and sang duets with my mother who had been, in her city days, a soloist of note in Boston.

Neither parent joined the Presbyterian church [located just down the street at the end of the next block] but we four children, Harlo, Paul, Harry and Margaret, took part in all of the church activities.

My father was superintendent of the CPMfgCo plant in Portland, which made butter tubs, about 1000 a day. There were 75-100 men at work with the various machines. The tubs were shipped by railroad to various butter and lard producers in the midwest.

On Holidays and vacations we three boys, after we were 10 years of age worked in the factory. Paul usually in the warehouse, I at one of the various machines. Harry driving a horse or a truck. Our father showed no favoritism and we were treated just as the other men were. In fact I remember being called upon to work in the center section with 8 small furnaces when the weather was terrific and no man would work there. I fired a boiler for a week in burning Indiana heat when men wilted under the heat. I remember well, I’m sorry to say a foreman of mine who took great delight in telling me the most vile stories imaginable, some of which remain in the back of my brain to this time.

We kept a cow, sometimes two, a horse, and a flock of white leghorn chickens. Paul went to the pasture for the cow, Harry milked her and I peddled milk at five cents the quart. Our horse was usually an ex-race horse and only our father drove him.

In the church we were among those who did things. Mother at the organ, father directing the choir, and I for quite a while back of the curtain pumping the organ. We put on an Old Folks Concert at one time, and I with Carrie Tate, sang a Duett "Dost thou love me Sister Ruth" I detested the whole performance. Fifty eight years later I married her, my second wife.

Our mother gave piano lessons and we were hush! hush! when lessons were being given.

Ours was a great house for sociability and my mother was an admirable creature at party planning. A feature of each social occasion was Peas Porridge Host with music played.[?] She had invited people of all ages and social strata and maintained that this many times was the cause of its success.

Ringling Circus came to our Town yearly and the tents were just a short ways from our house. We boys were there from the beginning to the end and then we walked around where there bleachers had been and picked up change from slippery pants pockets. [Coincidentally, later ,he and his family lived in Baraboo Wisconsin, home to Ringling Bros.]

We had the second automobile in town – a 1907 white Haynes-Apperson with red leather and top. [see attached photo and add] Stories about that car could fill several pages. It was the law that when a man in a horse drawn rig held up his hand the automobile had to stop and then we boys in town, went up to lead the horse past. Tires were a major factor and a puncture every 10 miles was not uncommon. Before the car was delivered I spent a month at the factory in Kokomo Indiana helping putting cars together. I can’t see that this was really of much value.

School years I will go over quickly for there is little of memorable delights there. We walked about 1/2 a mile to school and then back after dinner. My father was a Shakespearean admirer and I was always secretly ashamed when he gave readings from this dramatist before the High School students.

There were no football teams, nor basket nor baseball teams then altho there was a track team that did well. The runners in their so called underwear bothered some of the women folk, as I remember.

Graduation was just like it was an still is and we finished with delight.

My particular friends were of all sorts. Ralph Raferty Rainy was a sort of a ruffian who was a great book reader. Later he finished life as a hobo. Don Hall was our neighbor, shrewd, likeable. Married a pretty girl and became manager of a local factory. Milo Jordan, a quiet red head return to the farm and was still living in 1968. In 1968, Carrie, my second wife also of my class of 1903 returning to a class reunion found about a quarter of the graduates still living.

Like many boys I was quite bashful in the presence of girls and made no pretext of having one specially for my own possession but there are a few names that linger on- Emma Emerson lived a block from us. I kissed her once In a game of Post Office. Cecil Close was dark skinned and we wrote many notes to each other. Maude Spade was much too short but I liked her a bit. In 1969 she lived in Washington, DC. Others were on the outside.

After we boys had worked for much of the summer we usually went to Bay View Michigan where we had a few weeks of lakeside vacation. Strange to say perhaps fifty years later I found out that my future wife Reubey Ferris must have been summering near at about the same time as we.

My mother was a delightful creature, vivacious, out going, and a good mother and wife. She possessed a sort of sense of superiority over our common neighbors and with many friends yet had no very close friends. After my father’s death in 1910 she lived at various times in Oberlin Ohio, Waukesha Wisconsin, and Lakewood Ohio where she died at the home of my sister [Margaret Ferris Fletcher.]

Now comes a section of time from 1903 to 1906 – College years. Supposed to be years of great delight and I failed then to get great thrills and now looking back have no great stirrings of joyousness, altho individual events still bring happy memories.

In the fall of 1903 with my brother Paul, I went to Oberlin College in Ohio. I as a Freshman and he as a preparatory student in the academy [this is why we don’t see Paul in the Portland year book where his Sr. class should be. MEFLG] We went there because of the fact that a relative on the Hakes side, Professor Coles [?] had once been on the faculty there. Interestingly enough, over the years other relatives of ours followed suit. Until there must have been as many as 20 or 25 of us, Ferris, Kimball, Walker, Anderson, and Belknaps they were but all with Ferris blood if not always name.

There at Oberlin College I spent 3 school years without any special ambition expect to get a degree and graduate. College years were 5 in all instead of the customary four because I took work in music which gave me no credit but perhaps with more delight and inner profit than certain per scribed courses.

I might add here that I spent but three years at Oberlin College and finished with two years later in Pommona College. In Oberlin we, Paul and I, lived with a delightful widow and ate at a boarding house, where college girls lived and ate as well. Most of our social life gravitated about this boarding house where besides just plain eating were parties and social events, flirtations and courting. I had also my lady love there, named Inez Shakes. Both of us were untrained in courtships ways and made little or no progress in this delightful art.

Class work was prescribed and elective; some of which I enjoyed and some was sheer boredom; one Trigonometry I flunked but under a different professor found that it was indeed easy. My favorite courses was one on Shakespeare and another on Italian History made memorable by the fact that the professors were both capable and enthusiastic.

School social events in those days were not much different I suspect, then those of present days. Dances and proms and parties; skating parties in the winter and out of door picnics in the short warm spell that school life offered. Social life not being prescribed but freely of choice perhaps had as much bearing on our future life and conduct as much that serious minded educators considered essential. The fact that there were no automobiles or practically none in those days changes the picture greatly.

Athletically I did nothing more that two course of physical training, altho I did play tennis often. I had a part in our play Ralph Roiste Dorsty [?] a play from about Shakespearean times a very minor part. I being the not so bright son (perhaps fitting my personality) there was one [?]side more than another of College life that attracted and interested me most I suppose that it was in music in its various forms. Oberlin has always had a great love for music both in its conservatory and its college life as well. I missed few musical attractions, student recitals, oratorios, orchestra concerts, everything in which was music – Always I stayed to the end of the organ recessional and took great delight in Dr. Andrews organ improvisations. For myself over the years I have tried my hands with piano, cello, bass viol. french horn, singing and now (1970) with the little recorder – In none have I accomplished much but have had much pleasure in each as they have arrived.

Many people of future prominence were in Oberlin during my years there. I might mention in passing that HH Kung [?] later to become the treasurer of China. Percy Ebbot, president of the largest bank in New York City; Anna Louise Strong, leader of American Communists and later living in China. Amos and Thorton Wilder, writer and theologians, …later on the cabinet of Woodrow Wilson, Martin Davey, later governor of Ohio.

[This is the end of Harlo H. Ferris’ recollections in this particular document. Other anecdotes are recorded elsewhere. MEFLG 2004]


Harlo and Carrie were high school friends in Portland, Indiana. They actually sang together at the high school. They met up again many years after Grandma Reubey had passed away, as well as Carrie’s husband, at a school reunion. They were married in 1960 in Iowa and lived in Michigan where Grandpa had a ministry at Rockford, for a number of years. After he retired for good, Grandpa and Carrie lived at the PL with very primitive conditions (no indoor plumbing or running drinking water). Both of them loved the birds there and both wrote lots of poetry together. Carrie had children with her husband previously, names not recalled at this time.

January 20, 2007, Pilgrim United Church of Christ, Grafton WI – Eulogy by James Litton to his Grandpa, James T. Ferris

My Grandfather might have been many things to many people. Father, brother, husband, friend, engineer, soldier, mentor, photographer, artist, boxer, investor, deacon, and inventor. He was the model family man and citizen. But, as a young person growing up, I would have had a hard time describing him as any of these things. To me (pause), he was the dreamer, the “doer” and above all else, the story teller. PBS, Sesame Street, and Mr. Rogers had nothing on my Grandfather’s ability to capture my attention as an adolescent. He and I logged in countless hours at each of his many workshops, usually talking more than working. He spoke with a slow grace, matched only by the likes of James Earl Jones. Watching my facial expressions change with each twist and turn of his tales, he lit a match under my imagination every lazy afternoon we spent together.

My Grandfather the dreamer loved the idea of flying. At the breakfast table in Lexington, he would listen to my early morning rants about transformers, monsters and baseball. I would ask, “What do you dream about Grandpa?” With ease, he would say, “flying… Soaring with the birds. My arms spread out and I danced on the treetops.” This went on for several years. I would have nightmares and he would recount his latest dream of flying. Finally, one day I decided to ask, “if you like flying so much, how come you always drive to the PL every year?” He and Grandma laughed and I joined in. I didn’t know why it was funny; I just thought it would have been faster.

I should clarify one point regarding my Grandfather’s dreaming. His dreams of flying were confined to sleeping and napping. While, during the day, we were all free to observe his dreams come to life. My wife often wonders where I get my tendency to come up with some lovable, yet hair brained schemes. Well, I have to attribute this one to you Grandpa. This is the man who planned to create a poison ivy killing machine so that we could all be rid of that three leaved devil. He had an old lawnmower that looked more like a Mid-evil torture device rather than something used for lawn-care. He and I sat over plans for months until we decided to cut the machine up with a hacksaw and mailed it to the PL. We agreed that we would need to spend at least a summer perfecting the “P.I. Dragon.” I don’t think it ever got out of the box once it arrived in Wisconsin, but the dream certainly stayed alive. This was not the first nor the last time my Grandfather and I would let our imaginations get the better of us. There was the time our neighbors put their broken down swimming pool ladder in the trash. To some this might have been just another piece of junk. To Grandpa and I, this was just the excuse we needed to spend countless hours with our favorite hardware man and Time Life home repair books. You should have seen the look on my Grandmother’s and Mother’s faces. It was the proverbial, “Here we go again!” Models of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, we allowed one another’s logic to leap frog reality. “Hey look at that!” he exclaimed as we turned the corner. “Yeah!” I exclaimed, not yet knowing what we would do with it. “Well, you can’t have a pool without a ladder!” Truer words could not have been said to my nine year old ears. And within half an hour we were in the backyard, planning, scheming, and giggling with joy as we gazed at our newest project. At dinner, Grandpa told Grandma and Mom our plans to use fine cuts of redwood and cedar to fix the plastic and metal pool ladder. Mom choked a little on her “Wendy stew,” trying to hold down her laughter as much as possible. Grandma, staring into what was going to be our latest summer debacle, said, “I’d rather you just build a wooden space ship and get it all over with.” I am sure with all these adventures into the impossible my Grandfather’s goal was never to add to his list of numerous patents or to relive his days at Bausch and Lomb. He wanted to foster the life of another dreamer. He wanted to see someone else touch the stars and lives of others, an art he redefined everyday.

John Tomlinson Ferris “the Doer” was not the accomplished professional this title might seemingly describe. He was most certainly accomplished in every professional task he undertook, but “the Doer” was one who paid attention to little things. As a child I watched with great impatience as my Grandfather fixed a wooden airplane my Uncle made when he was eight; he returned every single shopping cart he ever used to the front of the store; he catalogued his LP record collection numerically, alphabetically and then ‘Bettically’ (i.e. from most to least important as it related to his love for Grandma… In my heart of hearts I think this was done just to get her to dance when no one else was around.) I did not understand why he took such care with every task. Just as some people watch their checkbooks like hawks, my Grandfather guaranteed that every action he took moved the world towards a better place. Karma is a heavy thing for an adolescent to understand. I was truly lucky to know someone living and loving as if the Golden Rule was something more than just an old playground standard. My most favorite example of this type of behavior was when I was a teenager, living with Grandpa and Grandma in Lexington. I was downstairs, studying for my High School Freshman year final exams, when I heard several voices. One was Grandpa, the other two I had never heard before. I looked out the window… no cars. The voices were younger… hmmm… there was no way my friends had come over. I suddenly got worried. I yelled up the stairs, “you ok up there?!” “Sure thing James,” My Grandfather’s voice exclaimed. “I’m just listening to these Gentlemen’s theory about how Jesus took a little Vacation in North America.” It hit me like a ton of bricks. Grandpa invited two of the local traveling Mormons, on their mission, to come in for tea and conversation. He had no intention of converting, but had no reason turn them away either. Not only was he up for religious conversation, he wanted to extend his hand in friendship to those individuals more accustomed to having doors slammed in their face by the majority of yuppies in the old New England town. I am not sure I would do the same thing if presented with this situation in the future, but I do believe there is something to be learned from his undying kindness and curiosity.

Grandpa the storyteller was most certainly the main event. His top ten hits were known as:

The time Great Grandpa beat up a drunk for cursing Jesus in a barber shop

The Butler farm and all its endless supply of watermelons

The bombing of his bunker in Moriti

The Mighty proposal on Gibraltar Rock

The ins and outs of Radar school and how Private Ferris learned to love Basic training and army cheese

The triumph of Son John in leading creating the Lexington High School wrestling team

The mighty kick of the cat heard round the world AKA Grandma’s first trip to the PL in her early morning slumber, kick the family cat out of the tent.

The “army boxing champ” known as Submarine

Eating Pancakes on the war ship and cheering the appearance of the Golden Gate bridge

And last but not least, my favorite

The ever victorious malleable tales of Cowboy James

Cowboy James was the protagonist in every moral lesson. They usually started with Cattle wrestling, a phrase I tool all too literally until he explained that it was stealing cows. Then they moved into more serious territory. My Grandfather had just gotten out of hospital, recovering from knee replacement, and would ride his stationary bike. I would be next to him on the rocking horse my uncle John handcrafted for me as Christmas present. He had his horse and I had mine. Later in life I learned that he was telling me about his own life. The time Cowboy James and his best friend ran into trouble with an axe in the woods of the PL; that was my Grandfather and Uncle Harlo were chopping wood as young boys and Granpa’s finger was in the way. The time Cowboy James had a wagon fall on his arm; he was explaining what happened when an engine motor fell on his hand in the south pacific. When Cowboy James moved to Houston and sent for his bride to be; this was Grandpa telling me the “ins and outs” of how to convince a woman to plan a wedding and marry you within one month’s time. (I think I missed the message here, maybe he was trying to get me to utilize the fine institution of Las Vegas, I am not sure) Grandpa the storyteller never needed special effects, loud noises, or explicit content to capture the listener. Rather, his fables were filled with enough exciting reality to interest both the patient listener and excitable youngster alike.

To conclude her heart felt eulogy of my Grandmother, my mother exclaimed, “we are not mad at you Momma, we love you and will keep loving you forever.” To my Grandfather I say, “You got the story of life right, Grandpa. Your’s is a tale we will never stop telling.”

Milton WI, August 19, 1934 – ‘To be members and friends of The Milton Congregational Church, together with relatives of the Ferris family gathered: The pleasant duty of acting as historian on this memorable occasion has been assigned to me, and because it has to do with the early history of own dear father and mother, William P. and Betsy Janes Ferris, it is a very real pleasure indeed. And by reason of the fact that it has to do also with my early boyhood days spent in Rock County, I am not interested in it than would be the case otherwise. In about the year 1830, 100 years ago, there came a very study young man from the state of Connecticut by the name of William P. Ferris, to settle as an early pioneer in Johnstown, Rock County, WI. Early history has it that he was a man of small means and worked his way on the Erie Canal and otherwise, and by walking part way he reached his destination, with the determination to make a home for himself in the Middle West. Government land was then selling for $1.25 an acre. But without money, he could not hope to acquire it even _at that small price. And so he set about to earn his own living splitting rails and by doing other work of various sorts he got ahead enough in the three years that followed, to buy a farm of perhaps 160 acres — thus getting his start in the world. By that time there was in the same neighborhood of Rock County a family by the name of Janes from the state of New York. And this young man soon found himself a wife, a member of this family in the person of Betsey Ann Janes, a beautiful young woman it was said. And thus the family of :Mr. and Mrs. William P. Ferris was started in the year 1842; Connecticut and New York joining hands. From that time on children were born to this union until they totaled nine. One died in early life, leaving these eight to grow up to mature years: Augusta, Hiram, Ellen, Mary, William, Charles, Charlotte, and Bessie. My father and mother were religious people and the family altar was early established with the reading of the Bible each day and prayer in the home. Church was attended faithfully each Sunday.. All this early training had its effect on each and everyone of the children as would naturally be the case, even though sometimes we rode to church in a lumber wagon. During these years a wonderful friendship existed among the various Janes families that had been established in that neighborhood also, not only because of relationship by marriage, but because of the fine Christian character of these wonderful people (My mother’s brothers).

During the years that these young people of both the Ferris and Janes families were growing up in this Johnstown neighborhood, there developed among other qualities considerable musical ability. Among these cousins, conspicuous musically was my sister Augusta. As a soprano singer she had no equal in .that section. And being father and mother’s first born, she was their pride and joy and gave them great pleasure and satisfaction in the music of her beautiful voice. One cousin in particular, Oscar Janes, was something of her equal as a bass singer. Others might be mentioned. In these early days good music was much more scarce than in the days in which we are now living. These young people were often heard in church and schoolhouse, and in neighborhood entertainments called "Old Folks Concerts" in and about what was then known as Johnstown Center. Young in life, Augusta married to Noyes. S. Belknap of Illinois, became the mother of three fine children, Giles, Lewis and Charlotte Belknap.. Sad to relate, she passed away in 1872, aged 29 years. Chiefly because of better educational advantages afforded by Milton College for his children, my father sold the farm in Johnstown in about the year 1860 and bought one of about 100 acres one mile east of Milton and moved his family into what was known as the Walker neighborhood. Being only one mile_way from Milton College and it very convenient for various members of the family to seek an education in this very reputable place of learning. My father also became very much interested in the graded school in Milton, and was for some time a member of the school board, taking a lively interest in the matter of erecting the new school, which still stands in the park in the center of town. He also took a hand in setting out the beautiful trees that now adorn this self same park, all of which seems very familiar to me as I come back to Milton after many long years of absence. Let me say in passing, that my parents were members of the Baptist church in Johnstown before coming to Milton. Much might be said about the real pleasure we as a family of young children, boys and girls together, experienced while growing up on the farm here in Milton. When old enough, we were taught to work, for there was plenty to be done the year ’round. Naturally as boys we liked to play pretty well, too, and usually found time for that also. There was the stock to be taken care of – cows to be milked, horses fed, pigs, sheep, and chickens also, and oh what fun it was to gather the eggs several times a day — all of which comes back to me forcibly now. And then — there were planting of the crops in the Spring, harvesting time in Summer – and gathering-in the grain in the Fall. Apples for cider, pumpkins, squash, and other vegetables to be put in the cellar for winter use. What fun it all was! As for the boys, they never liked to get up early in the morning. However, father did like to, at about five o’clock, and there was no peace for the rest of us after that, even to the putting on of "Dingbats" as he called them — honest to good ness spankings if the boys were not up on time, ready for the day’s work. Then there were the good things to eat, especially when company came — grandchildren often in the later years, I well remember. And, so much else I cannot take time to mention. Life on the Farm I’ve never been weaned from it yet. And how I liked to ride horseback and all that. After the death of our dear mother in the year 1864, father married again in due time. This stepmother, bringing one son with her, made a most wonderful mother and helpmate in the Ferris family, for there were still children of tender years to be taken care of, together with cares of a household to oversee. . Too much credit cannot be given her for the faithfulness shown in those years, especially in times of illness when father had severe attacks of inflammatory rheumatism. Amidst of these years to which I have referred, my older sister, Ellen was married to George Walker of the Timothy Walker family. This wedding was certainly unusual, for on Sunday evening, January 31st, these two young people, sitting. in the choir, left their seats and the marriage ceremony was performed then and there by the minister of the church, much to the amazement of the people of the congregation, who had been taken so much by surprise. This was of novel origin and less trouble than some weddings. This happy couple was privileged to live together for 62 years before George Walker passed away four years ago, a very useful and happy life indeed, and unusual in length of years. One son born to this union, George Albert Walker. The marriage of these young people established more firmly than before a most wonderful and friendly feeling and high regard between the Ferris and Walker families (our nearest neighbors) several in number. So well acquainted were we with the Walkers that when speaking of them as neighbors and friends it was always "Uncle Willian", "Uncle Alfred", "Uncle Timothy", "Uncle Moses", and "Uncle Aaron". My brother Hiram found himself a wife in Milton also, in the person of Miss Hattie Sanborn, a woman of rare ability as a teacher, and afterwards a fine minister’s wife and mother of their five children, Semour, Sarah, Annie, Walter, and Charles Ferris. This brother Hirman passed away in 1912. My sister Mary married Mr. C. M. Gates whose family at one time lived in Milton but had formerly lived in Berlin, Wis., a very successful teacher in the schools there. This sister Mary passed away in 1913. I can think of another brother in the midst of this reminiscence. William by name or Will for short, who almost married a Milton girl, but being of a fickle nature it was hard for him to choose between three fair young ladies he had on the string at once. So it finally fell to one of rare musical ability from New York state,. Miss Carrie M. Hakes, at one time a teacher of music in Milton College, who is present with us today, Mrs. W. L. Ferris now living in Lakewood, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, with her daughter Margaret [Fletcher]. My brother passed away in 1910 much to our sorrow. In this family there were four children, three fine stalwart sons and one daughter, Harlo, Paul, Harry, and Margaret Ferris, all of whom are attending this reunion today. Margaret and her two boys came all the way from Cleveland to be present here today. Our father passed away in about the year 1879 and the stepmother I referred to outlived him quite a number of years, marrying the third time a Mr. Cook of Whitewater where they lived very happily together several years thereafter. The farm home having been broken up in 1880, those who were left and unmarried went to Saint Paul, Minnesota to live with Mr. and Mrs. George Walker. And Aunt Ellen, as she is familiarly called, has, been like a mother to many of us ever since. I myself found a wife in the next four years in the person of Miss Kate H. Smith, the mother of our two children, Willard and Florence Ferris, both of whom might have been here today but for the fact that they are now on vacation trip touring the New England states together. I have yet to record the marriage of the two youngest of our family, Charlotte and Bessie, the first of whom, Charlotte, became the Wife of Mr. Arthur C. Anderson in St. Paul, a successful and prosperous banker end businessman in that city, and parents of two boys, Frank and William Anderson, the latter having the name of his grandfather before him, whom we honor here today,

Sad to relate, these two boys were left orphans early in life after the death of both mother and father a few years apart, and as might be expected, their Aunt Ellen came to their rescue and mothered them for quite some time, Charlotte having passed away in 1888, aged 26. Letters have been received expressing regret that the Andersons could not be present here today because of previous engagements made earlier in the season, for which we are sorry indeed. Last but not least, also youngest and smallest in stature of our family, our sister Bessie, took unto herself a husband in the person of Mr. E. F. Kimball, formerly of Berlin, this state, and became the mother of four fine children, Richard, Robert, Charlotte, and Ferris Kimball. This dear sister was left a widow early in life, her home being in Kansas City, Kansas. She has served wonderfully well as both father and mother to these four children all of these years, and has come all the way from Kansas City to be present here today. It was thought best for lack of time in this historical sketch not to go farther into detail of more than the first and second generation. Although much might be written of the third and fourth generation, now much in evidence, I am making one exception because of outstanding achievement by one of the great grand-children, Charlotte Belknap Reynolds, daughter of Giles and Lula Belknap, who has for many years been a missionary in China, and the letter from which I quote becomes a part of this sketch as follows: "Charlotte and Paul Reynolds went out under the American Board in 1921 to Fenchow (Pronounced fun-jo) China. They will soon be closing their second term and are to return for a third term. Charlotte has helped in very many ways in the mission work, has taught Domestic Science and written a textbook on that subject in Chinese. She manages the music program for church and schools, and has a school in her own home for her own children and some of the children of the other missionaries. Dr. Paul Reynolds is assistant to the Chinese Principal of the Ming I School (a large school for Chinese boys and girls of High School age), all Chinese schools, now by law having native Principals. "Paul is also Director of a large Civic Center work which last year celebrated its tenth anniversary, and at that time was taken over by the national Y.M.C.A. He was elected head of the Religious Educational Work of all north China." Charlotte and Paul have three children. They plan to come home in 1935 for their second furlough. The success of this service and family reunion being held here today is due in great measure to the untiring efforts of the three stalwart sons of my brother’s family whom I have already referred to, Harlo, Paul, and Harry Ferris, all residents of our fair state of Wisconsin. I think I am safe in saying that no family in the state can duplicate these three for size and number of feet in height or weight avoirdupois, and I am going to ask the to step forward on the platform while we give them a vote of thanks. And so ends the sketch prepared by your historian for this wonderful occasion, which I hope, has been of some benefit to those who have listened. .

GEORGE N. WILLIAMSON has been successfully engaged in the practice of law in the city of Aberdeen, Brown county, for the past twelve years, and is one of the representative members of the bar of the state. He is a native of the state of Minnesota, having been born in Rochester, Olmsted county, on the 20th of December, 1865, and being a

son of Nathan N. and Mary Williamson, the former of whom was born in the state of New York and the latter in New England, while they were numbered among the pioneers of Minnesota, the father having been for many years engaged in the contracting business at Rochester. The subject received his early educational discipline in the public schools of

Oronoco and Rochester, Minnesota, and then entered the law department of the University of Minnesota. He was admitted to the bar of his native state in 1889 and the same year to that of the new commonwealth of South Dakota, since he located in Aberdeen in 1892 and here initiated the active work of his profession, in which he has been most successful, being an able trial lawyer and a duly conservative counselor, he is a close student of his profession and gives careful preparation to every cause which he presents before court or jury. In politics he is an independent Republican and while he takes an active interest in public affairs and in the success of the party cause, he has never been ambitious for political office. He has attained the thirty-second degree in the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite Masonry, and is also identified with the Knights of Pythias. On the 15th of April, 1896, Mr. Williamson was married to Miss May M. Mackenzie, who was born in the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, on the 3d of August, 1875, being a daughter of Alexander C. and Annie Mackenzie. Of this union have been born three children, Alan N., Marjorie and Helen.

( MARY ARABELLA SMITH born November 27, 1846 Koloa, Hauai, HI and died age 2y

( WILLIAM OWEN SMITH (W.O.) (Photograph) born August 4, 1848 Koloa, Kauai, HI and died April 13, 1929 at his Nu’uanu home. As soon as William was old enough, he accompanied his father on his emergency rides all over the island. The young boy learned to speak fluent Hawaiian and developed a commitment to quiet, unheroic charity that would largely pass unnoticed, but which would be the guardian of his conscience all his life. His early education was the Rev. Daniel Dole’s school at Koloa. His parents later sent him to Punahou, which he left to work on a sugar plantation, laboring the fields in summer and the boiling house in the winter. After three years, he was easily persuaded to continue his education and went off to the Massachusetts Agricultural College at Amherst. Upon his return to Hawaii in 1870, he served as Sheriff of Kauai for two years. While working in a similar capacity on Maui, he became acquainted with Judge Alfred S. Hartwell, who guided him into a career in law, and who became his brother-in-law. W.O. was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the Kingdom, 1875. He was deputy attorney general of the Kingdom for nearly seven years, and later, attorney general of both the Provisional Government and the Republic. He also served as President of the Board of Health. He was elected to the Hawaiian Legislature, serving intermittently for 20 years and through four governments: the Kingdom, the Provisional Government, the Republic, and the Territory. He was president of the Territorial Senate during his last two years in office. Smith was on nearly every important board of directors in his day, serving as president of the Guardian Trust Company, President of the Bishop Trust Company, an incorporator of Haleakala Ranch, and trustee of the Hawaiian Sugar Planters Association, the Bishop Estate, Alexander Young Estate, Lunalilo Estate and, of course, the Queen Ililuokalani Trust and Childrens Hospital. He was director of many corporations, including the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company and Alexander & Baldwin Ltd. He carried his propensity for being in the thick of things into the private arena and was president of the board of trustees of KawaiaHao Church, a charter member of Central Union Church, a member of Koloa Church and chairman of the finance committee of the Hawaiian Board of American Missionaries. He was also the founder of the Christian Endeavor Society, a charitable group. Socially, he was a member of the Pacific, University and Oahu County clubs. He married Mary Abbey ‘Minnie’ Hobron, a ‘Maui girl’, daughter of a Haliimaile sugar planter. For a while, Smith practiced law with Lorrin Thurston and then set up his own legal practice in 1888, during the reign of King Kalakaua. He hung out his shingle at 66 Fort Street. As his practice grew and he took in partners, he moved to the Judd Building. The firm he founded a century ago continues today (1988) as Case & Lynch. Smith’s name appears on the Committee of Safety that instigated the Hawaiian Revolution, but it was W.O., that Queen Liliuokalani called for when she decided to leave her estate for the benefit of orphaned and destitute children. He was employed to establish her trust and he defended her sanity when the Queen’s disgruntled relatives sought to break her will; they tried to claim she was incompetent. Smith won the case. As Smith states it, “One of the gratifying experiences of my life was that after the trying period which led up to the overthrow of the monarchy and the withdrawal of Queen Liliuokalini, the queen sent for me to prepare a will and deed of trust and appointed me one of her trustees.” According to family tradition, Smith planted the banyan sapling at Lahaina, Maui,(1873) which today has grown to enormous proportions and is a favorite tourist stop on Maui.

Emily born in Genesee County NY and died in Seattle WA. Emily was an Eastern-born “finishing school girl” and not use to the rigorous life of a sturdy pioneer – yet that is what she got when she eloped with William Lyman. The family was frequently on the move, residing longest in Onarga IL, before they went to Nebraska and eventually to Seattle. Despite the many hardships of the life, Emily was adamant that her children would be educated. A charming story tells how Emily would let the dishes pile up in the kitchen and allow her bread dough to run over the pan while she read or listened to her children’s lessons. That William could be equally impractical is evidenced by another preserved anecdote: while living in Nebraska, he went to town to buy the children winter shoes – and returned with dainty little dancing shoes for the girls, who, of course, were delighted with their father’s choices – at least until they had to walk long distances in the Nebraska winter. [there is a conflict here – between Chaplain Ferris and the descendants of Emily & William – the descendants have Elizabeth Meade, b. 1760/70, marrying Joseph Ferris, b 1760/70, rather than Jonathan Ferris.] There is a William C Lyman who founded Lyman Transportation and Logistics, Inc in Elmhurst IL – wonder if he a descendant of this couple?; and born to them were:

( DORCAS FERRIS born 1793 and died October 1, 1832 Ridgeway, Orleans, NY; married as his first wife, August 15, 1814 Rev Jotham Morse [son of Davis & Miriam (Marsh) Morse] born June 14, 1793 Providence, Saratoga, NY and died September 18, 1878 Orleans Co NY. From the Pioneer History of Orleans County NY Biographies, Part II: I born in Providence, Saratoga County, NY, June 14th, 1793. I was married to Dorcas Ferris August 15th, 1814. I hired a man to move me to Ridgeway, agreeing to pay him forty dollars for it. Our outfit consisted of a good team of horses and wagon, as there was no snow then. My family consisted of my mother, my wife and two children. After we had been two or three days on the road, a ‘thaw’ came that compelled us to stop a week. The earth then became frozen and we went to Palmyra, when one horse gave out. I bought another horse for forty-five dollars, paid my watch, a fur hat, and a pair of boots, for thirty-two dollars, and gave my note for thirteen dollars, and with my three horse team went on to Rochester, when then consisted only of a few log buildings, one of which was a tavern where we stopped. On examining here I found our only bed had been stolen. I afterwards found it pawned at Palmyra by the thief and had to pay two dollars and a half to get it again. We came by the Ridge road to West Gaines, where we found an empty shanty and moved into it. I went to Batavia through Shelby and procured an article of a piece of land west of Eagle Harbor, and returned in one day as far as Millville. It snowed hard all day, and I think I did a good day’s work, traveling so far through the woods on foot. I acknowledge my steps were some hurried by seeing tracks of wolves in the snow, and seeing evidence of a bloody encounter they had had. I bought a three year old heifer and paid for her chopping three acres of timber, and fitting it for logging, going three miles to the place where I did my work. In time of haying and harvest I walked to Palmyra and worked there three weeks to buy pord and wheat for my family. The next fall I moved into a log house I had built, and felt at home. The next year I had a little trial such as was common to pioneer settlers in those days. It was before harvest. My cow has lost her bell, and had been gone in the woods eight days. We were destitute of provisions, except a small piece of bread, some sugar, and some vinegar. I went to the nearest place where flour was sold and could get none. On my return we gave the last morsel of bread to our children. I picked some potato tops, which my wife boiled and we ate, dressing them with vinegar. Our empty stomachs would not retain this diet. We speedily vomited them up and retired supperless to bed. Early next morning I arose and went to my neighbors a mile away, and they divided their small store of flour with me. I carried it home and my wife speedily salted some water, and made some pudding, which we ate with maple sugar, and this seemed to me to be truly the best meal of victuals I ever ate, I felt, even in this straight, the words of Solomon to be true: “Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and contention therewith.” Another incident. Myself and immediate neighbors were destitute for flour. I had money, which I had taken in exchange of land, so a neighbor took me with his team and wagon to Hanford’s Landing, at the mouth of Genesee River, to purchase flour. I bought six barrels of flour and one barrel of salt and took out my money to pay for it. Mr. Hanford, the man of whom I had made my, divided the money I handed him into piles of about thirty-six dollars in each pile, after doing which I was astonished to hear him accuse me, in an angry tone, of being a dealer in counterfeit money, and to learn that he had condemned about one-half of what I had paid him. He ordered a man in his employ to go immediately to Rochester and procure a precept for my arrest. I felt alarmed, and that I was in trouble. I knew not what to do, but God, who is ever watchful over those things who put their trust in Him, was with me. While things were growing more threatening, a gentleman whom I had never seen but once before came up, and after learning the facts, strongly condemned Mr. Hanford’s course. The money was again examined, and only about nineteen dollars found bad. This was replaced by current funds, and we were then allowed to return to our homes in peace. This supply carried the settlement through until harvest, and by the blessing of Heaven and our own industry, and economy, we had been saved from such destitution until the present time. I have seen the wilderness disappear, and beauty and civilization spring up in its place around me. I have, in common with mankind, drank at the cup of affliction, perhaps more deeply than many others. I have been called to mourn over the graves of two loved companions and four children, form a family of fourteen. I now reside with my third wife, in West Shelby, and preach every Sunday at the Christian Church in Barre NY, where I have labored in the ministry, more or less, for fifty years – May 1868. He was ordained a minister in the Christian Church in 1824 and served faithfully 64 years. He became entirely blind, and was otherwise greatly inflicted for some time before his death.

Rear Admiral Maurice E. Simpson, USN (Retired) passed away on February 16, 2004, near his home in Del Mar, Calif. Born in Minnesota, in 1909, he completed his dental studies at the University of Minnesota in 1936, followed by a year’s internship with the U.S. Public Health Service in the Marine Hospital at Norfolk, Virginia. In 1937, Simpson was appointed lieutenant junior grade in the U.S. Navy, reporting to the Naval Medical Center in Washington, D.C., for indoctrination before accepting his first duty assignment at the U.S. Naval Training Center in San Diego, Calif. One year later he was transferred to the U.S. Marine Base, San Diego. Simpson was aboard the stores-issue ship USS Antares when the ship entered Pearl Harbor at 8 a.m. on December 7, 1941. The ship was strafed and bombed by Japanese pilots. Simpson was a dental officer on board the USS Washington starting in 1944 and saw combat action during seven major battles in the Pacific Ocean including the Marianas Operation, the capture and occupation of the Philippine Islands, the South China Sweep, the support and occupation of Iwo Jima and the operations at Ryukyu Islands. Following the hostilities with Japan, Simpson served three years as chief of dental service in the U.S. Naval Hospital, Quantico, Virginia. In 1949, Simpson was a dental officer at the port facilities in Tsingtao, China, with additional duty aboard the USS Repose. He was forced to leave Tsingtao along with other military personnel when Nationalist Chinese troops abandoned the city to the Communists. One month later, Simpson, who was then a commander, assumed duties aboard the USS El Dorado. For the next five months, the ship steamed off the China coast and was one of the last two U.S. Naval vessels to leave the cities of Shanghai and Amoy before the Communists took over. From July 1949 to June 1951, Simpson served at Fleet Activities and at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan. During that time, hostilities broke out in Korea, and because the Naval Hospital was closest, it was overwhelmed with war wounded. Simpson was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal for his skill and leadership in the treatment of the wounded in the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka. Simpson had a variety of assignments following his duty in Japan, including Illinois, Washington, D.C., California and Virginia. He headed the dental department at the Naval Station in Rota, Spain, from 1960 to 1963, and from 1963 to 1965 he served as dental officer of the San Francisco Naval Shipyard. Simpson was promoted to rear admiral on July 1, 1964. Simpson returned to San Diego in July 1965 as director of the dental activities and dental reserve program for the 11th Naval District until 1967. Simpson served as fleet dental officer and assistant chief of staff of dentistry for the commander in chief of the Atlantic Fleet until his retirement in 1971. Simpson was awarded nine separate medals with seven combat stars for the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign. In addition to the Legion of Merit, Navy Commendation Medal and the Navy Unit Commendation, he was entitled to wear the American Defense Service Medal with fleet clasp, the American Campaign Medal with Asia clasp, the China Service Medal, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Service Medal and the Philippine Liberation Ribbon. Simpson served as a commissioned U.S. Navy officer for over 33 years. After retirement, Simpson returned to San Diego, where he enjoyed golf with friends and even made two holes-in-one. He also enjoyed travel with his wife, Ruby, who died in 1994. He leaves a sister, Betty and her husband, Ray Vargas of Modesto, Calif.; and two sons, George, a retired Navy Captain in Washington, D.C., and Bill, a retired Veteran Services Officer and his wife, Mary K. in Aptos, Calif. He also leaves three granddaughters, Debby Simpson of Encinitas, Jennifer Simpson of Del Mar and Katie Simpson of Portland, Oregon. Memorial services will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 20, at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Chapel, 1600 Henderson Avenue, San Diego. Burial services, with military honors, will be held at Arlington National Cemetery at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 5.

Both buried Sunnyside Memorial Park in Long Beach CA. Wauneta received a Diploma in Elocution in 1903; a Diploma in English in 1906; and a Diplma in Oratory in 1908. Mark received his Doctor of Medicine and Surgery in 1909; appointed to staff of Metropolitan Hospital in New York City; WWI Veteran in the Medical Corps serving in France, discharged as a Captain February 25, 1919. He was a Mason. From the Towner County ND Hansboro News: “September 24, 1915 NEAR DEATH IN AUTO ACCIDENT Bowman Citizen – Dr. and Mrs. Mark Mizener of Bowman, narrowly escaped death or serious injury when their Ford runabout, which the doctor was driving, hit a large rock, obscured by weeds in the center of a seldom traveled road, while driving north of town Friday. The Doctor and Mrs. Mizener were out on a professional call and were traveling on a cross trail about eight miles north of town, near the Claud Brooks’ place. They were traveling at about 25miles an hour when they hit the rock which stood squarely in the center of the trail but which was obscured from view by the tall grass and weeds. Mrs. Mizener was thrown out of the car, turning a complete somersault before hitting the ground. The doctor was thrown across the steering wheel, landing with his nose across the top of the windshield. Jingo, the doctor’s fox terrier, was thrown a distance of several yards. Mrs. Mizener was bruised and severely shaken up but fortunately no bones were broken. The doctor will carry a remembrance of the accident for some time to come in the form of a badly scratched and bruised nose. Jingo, it might be added, escaped without a scratch. The car did not escape so fortunately as did its occupants. The force of the collision may be judged when it is learned that the rock weighed several hundred pounds and was imbedded from eight to ten inches in the ground. The car struck with such force that the rock was moved from its position although it was imbedded firmly enough to stop the car within three feet. As far as the working parts of the car are concerned it was practically a total wreck, everything from the radiator to the rear axle being broken or twisted. "Doc" will buy a new car and is glad that it was only the Ford, which was severely injured.” Born to them were:

In business he displayed a large amount of energy and perseverance, was public spirited and was largely interested in the business enterprises of the early settlement of Wethersfield. He rented the old Wethersfield Colony Steam Flour and Saw Mill, which he managed for a number of years, and to him belongs the credit of opening the first ‘coal bank’ in that part of the state. He will long be remembered by all the early settles of this vicinity as one of the most valued and use members of this society – to whom appeals for assistance were never made in vain.” [note – death date in obit is wrong.]Born to Sylvanus and Francis were:

( EDWIN FERRIS (AFN:35ZN-FF) born August 8, 1842 Bradford, Henry, (Stark Co) IL and died June 13, 1916 Plumas Co CA [LDS says he died at Last Chance, Lassen County CA]. Edwin lived in a cabin and raised cattle in the Plumas National Forest. Legend has it that Edwin had chased sheep out of the meadows before they ruined the grass for his cattle and he died of a heart attack on his way back to the cabin. He was found lying in the creek. Edwin acquired his education in the public schools and academy in his native state. In 1864 he crossed the Plains, accompanied by a large train; and in making the trip from Omaha to Verdi it took three months. He settled in Plumas and Lassen Counties, CA, where he had large holdings. He owned sixteen hundred acres in Plumas County and seven hundred eight acres in Lassen County. He was largely identified in the stock and dairy business in both counties. In 1900, he moved to Reno NV and purchased the Frey ranch, consisting of two hundred and eighty acres, almost adjoining Reno. Edwin served the people of Washoe County as County Commissioner for six years, and at the general election in the fall of 1912 he was further honored, to fill the same office for a four year term. He was instrumental in the building of the Courthouse in Reno. His picture hangs in the lobby. He was also a member of the School Board. Fraternally he was a member of the B.P.O.E. and the Odd Fellows. He married, February 24, 1864, in Henry County IL, Lucretia Leonard (Photo) born December 11, 1847, Henry County IL and died February 2, 1925, Reno NV.

From the Stark County Republican, 7/20/1893: “George M. Ferris, who has been sick so long and suffered so much, is at last at rest from earthly care and pain. George was a good neighbor, an honest, industrious citizen, kind in his family and social relations. An accident of several years ago resulted in the loss of a foot two years ago, this seemingly enfeebled him so he was unable to withstand disease, and though he performed the duties of tax collector a year ago it could be plainly seen that he was not long for this world. The writer saw him a few weeks ago, and he seemed as bright, hopeful, and jocular as ever, but consumption is ever deceiving and invidious. The deceased leaves a wife and five children, besides numerous brothers and sisters and other relatives who mourn his death, and with whom the Republican sincerely sympathizes.” Born to them were [not listed below is an infant son born May 30, 1888 and died June 1, 1888]:

About 1900, Fred purchased a farm on section 29, Osceola Township, consisting of a tract of land of one hundred and sixty-five acres devoted to general farming. The farm was the visible evidence of his life of well directed energy and thrift for he was a self made man, who started in business life with nothing. Diligence and determination, however, have overcome the obstacles and difficulties in his path, and he worked his way steadily upward. Fred’s father, George, died when Fred was a lad of but fourteen years. Fred was educated in the common schools and was reared upon the old home farm. Early undertaking the task of plowing and cultivating the land and producing the crops, there soon came to him knowledge of the value of industry and perseverance, and he used these qualities to enable him to gain a financial start. Fred married March 15, 1906 in Stark Co IL, Agnes E.

In Scott’s words: “Enlisted in the US Air Force during the Korean Conflict February 1951; went to Communications School at Warren AFB, Cheyenne, WY; from there he was stationed at Scott AFB near St. Louis. In 1954 he was re‑assigned to Newfoundland, Canada. Notice the time frame; mom said that he was home long enough to make babies and then was gone on remote assignments. After his tour in Newfoundland he was assigned to Brooks AFB, San Antonio, Tx (Security Service). In 1959 he went to Japan and later followed. My mother (bless her heart) had 4 little boys (under the age of six) and was expecting another. We stayed in Japan until our return in 1962. His next assignment took us to northeastern Arkansas to Blytheville AFB. This was a SAC base with B52’s and KC‑135 tankers. We were there to witness the mass takeoffs of the entire base wing during the Cuban War Crisis. Impressive and scary. The next change of station came in 1964; back to San Antonio the family went, and he went to Libya, Africa. In 1966 he put in for San Antonio and was assigned to Lackland AFB (his only assignment outside of his career field). In late 1968 he received orders to go to Torrejon AFB, Madrid, Spain. He left, and we stayed until school was out in the summer of 1969. Again, my mother traveled with 6 kids from San Antonio to Madrid. Everyone enjoyed this tour; the Spanish were nice people and there was no drinking age laws that prohibited teenagers from getting into trouble!!!! You could always tell the new kids, they were the ones with the hangovers!!!! My older brother and I returned to the states in the summer of 1971; Greg to start college, and I to finish my last year of high school. The family came back in March of 1972 to San Antonio, Tx. where my dad retired and we finally settled in. He never talked about his work in the military, we were not allowed togo to his work site because of the classified equipment and documents. He was often away on TDY’s to Iran, Libya, Turkey and who knows where else. We later found out there was a lot of embassy work. My dad gained a passion for clocks in Spain, started his collection and after his retirement from the military, started his clock business. He worked at this until his death in 1985”.

In Scott’s words: My service is much shorter: Enlisted in the US Air Force Aug. 1974, went through basic training at Lackland AFB (same squadron that my father supervised in 1966). Left Lackland AFB in October of 74 to go to tech school at Chanute, Il. I finished this school quickly and received orders to go to Nellis AFB Nevada and work avionics on the F‑111’s. This was a great assignment for a 20 year old (24 hour town so it did not matter what shift I worked). I quickly formed a friendship with a supervisor and his wife that loved the outdoors. We went climbing or caving every weekend. Got to know all the local areas and people that were interested in these sports, and took many extended trips to areas that were restricted to NSS members only. In the spring of 1976 the Air Force decided to move three wings. The aircraft from Nellis were to go the Mountain Home, ID.; Mountain Home’s aircraft were to deploy to Lakenheath England, and the english birds were to go to Nellis. This was the largest peace time movement of aircraft and personnel at the time. I was selected to go to England and arrived with the first group in April of 1977. What a mess; the base was old (WWII) vintage buildings that serviced the B‑17’s of the eighth Air Force during the war. They were not set‑up to handle 24 hour a day operations and did not have the experience or logistics in place to support us. We spent the entire first year on weekly alerts to prove to NATO that we could support their mission. Anyway, the base was lousy, the food was lousy, the barracks were lousy, but, the side trips into England, Wales, and Scotland were worth the trip. I spent every free moment I could get away from the base site seeing. I rotated out in July of 1978 and was discharged from McGuire AFB, New Jersey on terminal leave.

From Scott Ferris’ webpage: “William was a member of Company I., 139th Illinois Infantry during the Civil War, registering in Toulon IL. Adjutant’s Report: The One Hundred and Thirty-ninth Infantry was mustered into the United States services as a one hundred-day Regiment, at Peoria, on the 1st day of June, 1864, and on the 8th of June, it moved for St. Louis by steamboard, arriving there on the 10th; thence it moved to Columbus KY, where it remained about a week, when it was moved to Cairo as a garrison for that place. Here the Regiment remained until August with but little to disturb the monotony of camp life. About the 1st of August, a guerrilla party had captured some steamboats a short distance above Paducah, and took from them several hundred cattle and horses. General Payne, who was then commanding the Department of Northern Kentucky, ordered Colonel Davison to take 400 of his men and go and take from the rebel farmers living in the counties adjoining the Ohio River, where the capture was made, as many cattle and horses as had been taken from the boats. Some of the stock was recaptured, and enough others taken as directed to make good the loss. Two or three of the ringleaders of the guerrilla party were also captured. After the return of this expedition the Regiment remained at Cairo doing garrison duty until the 25th of September. It was then moved to Peoria to be mustered out of service. But the time had not come yet. General Price with a lare rebel force was marching towards St. Louis, and there were not enough troops to defend it that could be spared from other places. President Lincoln therefore sent a dispatch to Colonel Davison requesting him to take his Regiment and go at once to St. Louis. The President was aware that the Regiment had already served beyond the time for which it was enlisted. As soon as the circumstances were explained to the men they were ready to go. For this prompt response, the President wrote a letter to the men of the Regiment, expressing his thanks and commending them for their patriotism. Going by rail to St. Louis the Regiment marched out in the direction of Franklin to meet General Price. Several other Regiments joining in the march the rebel General soon decided it was to his advantage to move to the southern part of the State. The Union troops followed as fast as possible but failed to catch him. Having driven him to a remote part of the State the Regiment was again moved to Peoria, where it was mustered out of service on the 25th of October, 1984, having been in the service nearly five months”.

On August 27, 1862, the first company went into camp at Camp Butler, near Springfield – six days later, all companies were in camp. September 10th, all were mustered in the United States service for three years. It is written that the Regiment had been involved in 14 skirmishes, 10 battles and 2 sieges of 47 days and nights and 13 days and nights respectively, and so had been under fire eighty-two days and sixty nights. The Regiment was one of the most fortunate in the service. It always obeyed orders, taking and holding every position to which it was assigned unflinchingly. The Regiment was never repulsed, never retreated a step in the face of a foe and never lost a prisoner in action. Born to Samuel and Laduska were:
