DRISKELL posted by Jeanne L. Wilson on Sunday, December 26, 1999

I'm looking for information on Clyde DRISKELL, who lived in Pendleton, Umatilla County, Oregon in 1946-1947. His mother owned an arts & crafts shop - it was registered under her name, "Virgie DRISKELL," tho' only registered for one year. Clyde would have been in his mid to late 20's, at best estimate, at that time. I believe he may have worked "in the woods," perhaps a sawyer or some sort of lumberman. I realize this trail is 50+ years old, but any information would be appreciated at this late date. Clyde's mother was a full blooded Indian, tho I do not know what tribe she was. Thank you.

MORRIS posted by Sharon Knight on Monday, January 10, 2000

I am searching for information about Elijah MORRIS and his wife Amanda. Elijah was b. abt. 1833 and I am told that he and his wife are buried in the Pendleton Cemetery in Umatilla County. Would any of you have any information about his parents names, dates of birth or marriage information? Would anyone know what Amanda's maiden name might have been? I have found a Elijah MORRIS in the tax records in both Empire City and Coquille River which are in Coos County but have been able to find little else. There is an 1870 census record for an Elijah MORRIS but his birth date would have been 1809. Thank you for any and all help.
