Note: 14 Nov 1997: I found Eunice Sylvester, age 89, living at 11917 SW Steamboat Drive, Beaverrton, OR 97008-7004, phone: 503-644-3070. She gave me much information and many photos. Her grandmother was Emma Stark, who married Rheinhold Sylvester. Her father was Fred Sylvester. According to her, Rheinhold ran away from home in Germany to avoid military service. He went to sea and eventually became a first mate. He was asked to become a captain but chose to give up the sea, saying he had been shipwrecked three times and was the only survivor twice. He was afraid his luck would run out. He then married Emma. They lived in New York and moved west in a covered wagon. They left Chicago a year after the Chicago Great Fire (10/8/1871) and arrived in Portland a year before the Portland Great Fire (8/2/1873).
This last sentence is probably not true, since it is likely the entire family moved west together after 1875. Since Carl Stark and Henry Tigges were both painters, it may be that the Great Fires sparked their interest in going west to find work in reconstruction after the fires.
Augusta was Emma's sister. There is also a Martha Piert living at 51567 Oak Grove Dr., Scappose, OR 97056, phone: 503-543-3928 who is related to me in the same way Eunice is on the Stark side.
