|I am researching James BUZBY and
Dana Porter who resided near Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island. Buzby arrived
1853 from NJ via Illinois. His daughter married Dana PORTER of
Port Gamble who arrived from Wicassett, Maine. James BUZBY represented
the island in the territorial legislature when the territory recommended
the acquisition of Alaska. The family moved to Seattle and the son of James BUZBY, Issac BUZBY, was listed
as a volunteer firemen at the time of the Seattle Fire in 1889. These families
are listed in Kellogg's book. Any other information would be appreciated.

on Clarise Lillian Rhodes Pitchford HEUSNER Hart BROWN and
her daughter Margaret Lillian HEUSNER PLOE.
Clarise was born in 1860 possibly in Ohio. She later moved with her
family to Portland, Oregon. After her first husband deserted her
she moved to Seattle and then to Port Townsend where she gave birth to
Margaret in c. 1889 Clarise may have been buried in Island
Co in 1923. Margaret married James William PLOE in
Bremerton 1909 and died in Seattle 8/24/1952. I am having trouble finding
information in regards to Margaret's father, possibly George Henry HEUSNER born c1853-59 St. Louis, Mo.

|Looking for information
on William D. McCABE b. Ripley Co., Ind in 1847. He and his mother
and father (Alexander and Rodah KNAPP
McCABE), and a brother Perry Hill McCABE came west
after 1860. Perry H. Died in Polk Co., Ore in 1903. I know by old genealogy
that William died in N.W. Wa., and he had at least 2 children Ivy Pearl
and Ed. Perry was 7 years older than William so he may have died earlier
than 1903 or later. Can anyone be of assistance? I realize I have very
little info but I am hoping someone will help.Perry left an estate in Ore.,
so William probably did also. Is there a database online? Thanks for you
