I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, in the Columbia gorge in the 1940s, my Grandfather having traveled to Oregon with his parents 'by teams' from Arkansas in 1877.

The name of Daisy Dean is given in a Ewbank genealogy as a daughter of Dora Ewbank. An obituary of Clara Dean Berry also includes the "Dean" name. This was sent to me by Barbee Hodgkins of The Dalles, Oregon; she received it from Anne M. Ward of Husum, WA who collected it from the White Salmon (Wash.) "Enterprise".
Oh, neat, you got another Generous Genealogist Badge, (this time Blue). Congratulations again, Jim! Looks like you and William Berry are really doing some collaboration and working together. Way to go!!
Hi Jim, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Red Badged "Generous Genealogist", Glad to see you and other "Berry's" working together on their ancestors, sharing DNA results and having the Berry family grow in numbers. PS: Nice bio write up! Thanks for your military service as well.
When you find a moment, please look at Ann Willson (Hoag-464) and Ann Willson (Hoag-39). I just found new research that may disprove the research of Armstrong and Shotwell that has been reiterated by many. The Esquire Thomas Staindridge's will has apparently been located and apparently provides proof of Ann's LNAB as she is mentioned as a full sister of Thomas. This merge needs to be completed prior to being able to merge the duplicate children's profiles. Notes have been placed on the two profiles of Ann that further elaborate on the new evidence.
