Rolph, living in the Kiona canal district, two miles west of Kiona, Washington, is a native of Minnesota, born in 1870. His father, Osborn J. Rolph, was born in New York State in the year 1829. In 1852 he crossed the Plains with an ox team to the gold fields of California. After spending several years in the far West, he returned to Minnesota and there married Rosina Putnam Porter, a direct descendant of Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame. In answer to his country's call for volunteers, he enlisted in Company M, First Minnesota volunteers, and served until the close of the strugle. In 1886, with his family he emigrated to Oregon, and thence to the Horse Heaven region on the Columbia river. He died in Kiona in 1899. Leonard C. Rolph, the fourth in a family of six, attended the common schools of Wisconsin, Oregon, and Washington until fourteen years of age, then began working among the various farmers of Yakima county, gradually gaining invaluable experience which stood him in good stead later in life. When the Yakima Irrigation and Improvement Company constructed its canal through the lower Yakima valley, Mr. Rolph came to Kiona with his father and brothers and purchased land of the company. In 1898 he went to the Alaskan gold fields, making Dawson City his objective point, and for more than two years and a half delved for the precious metal. He returned to Washington in 1901, and is now succesfully engaged in farming a vast tract of Horse Heaven wheat land. Mr. Rolph was married at Kiona in 1894 to Ellen Ketcham, a daughter of Augustus C. and Lydia F. (Thurston) Ketcham. Both parents were born in New York State. Mr. Ketchum went to Wisconsin when a boy and in that state enlisted in the Fourth Wisconsin volunteers, serving in the Union army until the close of the war. He arose, through skill and bravery, from the rank of a private to that of a captain. After the war he followed farming in Wisconsin several years, then removed to Missouri, and in 1884 settled in the Horse Heaven region, Yakima county. His death occured in Kiona in 1892. Mrs. Ketchum was born in 1844, her parents being natives of Vermont. She was married at the age of twenty-three. Mrs. Rolph was born in Missouri, and educated in Yakima County; she was nineteen years old when married. She is a member of the Methodist Church. Mr. and Mrs. Rolph are the parents of three children Glen, Clifford,and Velma, all of whom were born at Kiona. Mr. Rolph is connected with two fraternal organizations, the Independant Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of American; politically, he is a Republican. He is a man of excellent standing among his neighbors and fellow men on account of his integrity, energy and progressiveness in all lines.' from pages 741-742 of 'An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima and Kittitas Counties,' published by Interstate Publishing Company in 1904.3 Velma and Gertrude was listed as a daughter in Leonard Clifford Rolph's household on the 1910 Census at Wellington Precinct, Benton County, Washington; 85, 85 Rolph, Leonard C., head, male white 39 yo, married once 15 yrs., b MN, father and mother b NY, speaks English, farmer, general farm, employer, can read/write,rent farm #77

'I remember Forrest (Ford) ued to tell about when he was quite young, probably before the 1920's, and he had visited his uncle and aunt in Kiona, the William and Libby (Elizabeth Ketcham) Kelso family, Wallace and Stanley among the children. Saturda night, bath night, the wash tub was carried upstairs to the boys' bedroom. Warm water carried up and the three boys had baths. Wallace was the oldest (I believe), and was first, Stanley next and Forrest last.' - Mrs. Forrest (Wata) Rolph, personal correspondence with Gary Rolph, 2-27-95.6

Frank Raymond Brooks

Smith Funeral Home GRANDVIEW - Frank Raymond Brooks died unexpectedly at his farm in Grandview, on the morning of Sunday, February 13, 2005. Frank Brooks was born in Grandview, WA to O.E. and Verna Henry Brooks on September 1, 1930. Mr. Brooks was raised on the family farm on Forrest Road with his two sisters and three brothers. He attended Grandview schools and often talked about how he enjoyed walking into the town of Grandview as he remembered it.
Mr. Brooks worked in the gravel and road construction business for a number of years and was an operating engineer at the Hanford Project until his retirement due to a back injury.
In 1948, he met and married Beryl Rolph of Prosser. Frank and Beryl eventually purchased a farm near Grandview, where they raised their children. Mr. and Mrs. Brooks raised livestock and raced Appaloosa horses and had several champions over the years.
After his wife's untimely death, Mr. Brooks continued living on the family farm raising cattle. Frank loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He really enjoyed raising cattle, watching the red-tailed hawks that reside on his farm, and was well known in the area for restoring old Ford automobiles.
He is survived by his children and their spouses, daughter, Frankie Wallace (Mike) of Grandview; sons, James Brooks (Cleda) of Rathdrum, Idaho, David Brooks (Colleen) of Kent; grandchildren and their spouses, Jason Wiley (Rachelle), Jeremy Wiley (Michele), Jennifer Brooks Peters (Dan), Justin Brooks and Brandon Brooks; great-grandchildren, Jessica Wiley, Christopher Wiley, Anthony Wiley, Kaelan Wiley, Jesse McManus, Wade McManus and Dustin Peters. He is also survived by three brothers, Leonard Brooks and Kenneth Brooks both of Grandview, WA and Harold Brooks of Goldendale, WA; one sister, Shirley Garrison of Sunnyside, WA. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Beryl Rolph Brooks and a sister Joyce Brooks Robertson.
There will be a memorial service at the Grandview Cemetery on Friday, February 18th at 10 a.m. and a gathering of family and friends at the Vintner's Inn at Hinzerling Winery following the service. Smith Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.1

Was organized in April, 1865, and was ordered to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where it remained until mustered out of service in September, 1865, and was discharged at Fort Snelling.

This narrative was found at an untitled Rootsweb site with no email address. Thus, I was could not ask permission or give credit. The webmaster's ancestor, Jabez Tuey, served in this regiment.


This regiment commenced its organization in the summer of 1864, and as fast as each company was organized was ordered to Chattanooga, Tenn. Sherman had begun his march to the sea, Hood was preparing to march northerly, and Chattanooga thus became a strategic point. General Thomas was in Nashville, overlooking the entire situation, and maintaining a large force of artillery at Lookout Mountain and Chattanooga.

The state at this time had an estimated population of 250,000 persons; 25,000 men had enlisted in the Union cause from Minnesota; the frontier had been depopulated by the Sioux outbreak; agriculture was the chief source of livelihood; and it will therefore be readily seen how great the strain upon our young commonwealth to take almost 1,700 men, its very bone and sinew, from families dependent for support upon their industry and labor. An extraordinary cause justified the demand, and to the last bugle call of their country's cause these men cheerfully responded. Children, families, homes, were left behind, and the South faced. That terrible South where so many had already met death. The cities had been depleted, and the gallant men composing the First Minnesota Heavy Artillery came mainly from the country districts. Intelligent and stalwart, healthy and rugged and inured to toil, they formed splendid material for soldiers. The regiment was composed of twelve companies, each company containing one hundred and forty men, officered by one captain, four lieutenants, and the usual non-commissioned officers. Great care was used by the governor in selecting such officers, old veteran soldiers being usually selected, sergeants from the veteran First Minnesota, and corporals from the Third, Fourth and Fifth being made captains and lieutenants.

When one of the great heroes of Gettysburg, Colonel William Colvill, consented to take charge of the new organization, and the veteran major of the Fourth, L. L. Baxter, his next in rank, was made lieutenant colonel, and Misner of the Third and Eddy of the Fifth, and that other gallant veteran from the First Minnesota, who had encountered Longstreet's charge at Gettysburg, C. P. Heffelfinger - when these follow as majors, who couldn't say that "Duty well performed, if not success and honor, must follow their regimental banner."

The command is ordered to Chattanooga to take charge of the heavy guns and forts of that place. Under the brow of Missionary Ridge, at the base of Lookout Mountain, and with the battlefields of Chickamauga and Atlanta beyond, what inspiring memories to lofty thoughts and patriotism! Rumor comes from time to time that Hood is about to march to Chattanooga and thence to Knoxville. The men are placed on half-rations, and the utmost vigilance exerted and anxiety prevails. There was reason for this anxiety. General Hood had reorganized the rebel forces of the South and Southwest, and it was a serious question as to what route he would take north. By attacking and capturing Chattanooga, thence on to Knoxville, he could have joined General Lee and delayed the final result.

The confidence displayed by Generals Thomas and Stedman, in placing the regiment in so responsible a post, was extremely complimentary. General Thomas Francis Meagher, fresh from the battlefields of Virginia, was given command of the district of Etawah, embracing our post, until the danger was over. The battle of Nashville has been fought and won; Sherman has reached the Carolinas; Lee has surrendered at Appomattox. The war practically over, the regiment in the summer and fall of 1865 is finally mustered out. Captain Harvey, Officer of St. Paul, was honored by being made acting assistant adjutant general of the district. Lieutenant Colonel Baxter became our colonel, and was, by order of General Thomas, chief of garrison artillery of Chattanooga from March, 1865, until the regiment left for home. Others, by reason of their activity and intelligence, were placed in places of trust and peril, and the regiment, with its career and duty well done and sacrifice endured, merits a name high on the monument that the record of Minnesota soldiers deserves.

on 25 March 1891 at Benton County, Washington.13 He died on 4 December 1899 at Kiona, Benton County, Washington, at age 70; "Deaths J O Rolph at Kiona Wash Dec 4th A D 1899 age 70 years 5 months" Jacob Rolph Family Bible.1,2 He was buried at Kiona Cemetery, Benton City, Benton County, Washington.1 He Jacob Osborne Rolph was born 05 July 1829 (1), in Sheldon, Genesee, New York. His father is listed in 1830 census of Sheldon, NY, but moved soon after, perhaps first to PA? 1870 census lists his birth place as PA. By 1836 his family moved to St. Charles, Ill. A brother, Sanford Rolph, was born 'in Illinois' in 1836 (2). Another brother, Robert S. Rolph, was born in 1840 'in Illinois.'(3) The family was still supposed to be in St. Charles, Ill., in 1850.(4) According to An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima, and Kittitas Counties, Washington (Interstate Publishing Company, 1904), p. 741, 'Osborn J. Rolph. . .in 1852 crossed the Plains with an ox team to the gold fields of California.' He was in California a number of years. The next record we have of him was that he married 'Rosina P. Porter, October 19th, 1862, by Rev. Wm. Wells at Plainview, Minn' (5) After their marriage they lived at Whitewater, Winona, Minnesota, from 1863 through 1872, except for a brief period of nine months, 8 Feb 1865 to 27 October 1865, when Jacob Osborne Rolph served in the First Heavy Artillery of the Minnesota Volunteers.(5a) 1870 census acc to letter to Gary Rolph from MN Hist Society (11 Feb 1966) has Rolf, J.O., 29, PA, farmer, Rosanna, 24, NY; Clara, 7, MN, Sanford 4, MN, Frank 2, MN. I suspect that the '2' should be '3' in both JO and Rosanna's ages. That would make Rosanna's correct and JO only 2 years off. They moved, sometime between 1872 and 1875 to Minneiska, Wabasha County, Minnesota, where their youngest child was born. Sometime after that, between 1876 and 1881, they moved to Chippewa County, Wisconsin, either to Chippewa Falls or to Bloomer. Their next few years are a bit confusing. According to the Obituary of Leonard Clifford Rolph, they moved to Oregon in 1882 and then homesteaded in the Horse Heaven Hills in 1883. However, he listed his address as 'Weston, Oregon,' in his 10 Dec. 1883 Declaration for a Pension; and they might still have been in Weston, Oregon, in 1884 when their first grand-child was born. At this time, though, the Illustrated History (op cit) has Leonard Clifford Rolph working with various farmers in the Yakima Valley (although it incorrectly states the year 'in 1886 (Jacob Osborn Rolph) with his family. . .emigrated to Oregon, and thence to the Horse Heaven region on the Columbia River'). It is generally agreed, however, that when the Yakima Irrigation and Improvement Company constructed an irrigation ditch in the Horse Heaven Hils was when Jacob Osborn Rolph and his family emigrated to Yakima County, to a homestead in the Horse Heaven Hills .(6) He evidently sold his homestead sometime later, and moved into Kiona, Washington, and it was in Kiona, Washington, that Jacob Rolph died, 4 Dec. 1899.(7) He and Rosina are both buried in the Benton City Cemetary.

In 1852 he crossed the Plains with an ox team to the gold fields of California. After spending several years in the far West, he returned to Minnesota and there married Rosina Putnam Porter, a direct descendant of Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame. In answer to his country's call for volunteers, he enlisted in Company M, First Minnesota volunteers, and served until the close of the strugle. In 1886, with his family he emigrated to Oregon, and thence to the Horse Heaven region on the Columbia river. He died in Kiona in 1899. Leonard C. Rolph, the fourth in a family of six, attended the common schools of Wisconsin, Oregon, and Washington until fourteen years of age, then began working among the various farmers of Yakima county, gradually gaining invaluable experience which stood him in good stead later in life. When the Yakima Irrigation and Improvement Company constructed its canal through the lower Yakima valley, Mr. Rolph came to Kiona with his father and brothers and purchased land of the company. In 1898 he went to the Alaskan gold fields, making Dawson City his objective point, and for more than two years and a half delved for the precious metal. He returned to Washington in 1901, and is now succesfully engaged in farming a vast tract of Horse Heaven wheat land. Mr. Rolph was married at Kiona in 1894 to Ellen Ketcham, a daughter of Augustus C. and Lydia F. (Thurston) Ketcham. Both parents were born in New York State. Mr. Ketchum went to Wisconsin when a boy and in that state enlisted in the Fourth Wisconsin volunteers, serving in the Union army until the close of the war. He arose, through skill and bravery, from the rank of a private to that of a captain. After the war he followed farming in Wisconsin several years, then removed to Missouri, and in 1884 settled in the Horse Heaven region, Yakima county. His death occured in Kiona in 1892. Mrs. Ketchum was born in 1844, her parents being natives of Vermont. She was married at the age of twenty-three. Mrs. Rolph was born in Missouri, and educated in Yakima County; she was nineteen years old when married. She is a member of the Methodist Church. Mr. and Mrs. Rolph are the parents of three children Glen, Clifford,and Velma, all of whom were born at Kiona. Mr. Rolph is connected with two fraternal organizations, the Independant Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of American; politically, he is a Republican.

Rolph, living in the Kiona canal district, two miles west of Kiona, Washington, is a native of Minnesota, born in 1870. His father, Osborn J. Rolph, was born in New York State in the year 1829. In 1852 he crossed the Plains with an ox team to the gold fields of California. After spending several years in the far West, he returned to Minnesota and there married Rosina Putnam Porter, a direct descendant of Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame. In answer to his country's call for volunteers, he enlisted in Company M, First Minnesota volunteers, and served until the close of the strugle. In 1886, with his family he emigrated to Oregon, and thence to the Horse Heaven region on the Columbia river. He died in Kiona in 1899. Leonard C. Rolph, the fourth in a family of six, attended the common schools of Wisconsin, Oregon, and Washington until fourteen years of age, then began working among the various farmers of Yakima county, gradually gaining invaluable experience which stood him in good stead later in life. When the Yakima Irrigation and Improvement Company constructed its canal through the lower Yakima valley, Mr. Rolph came to Kiona with his father and brothers and purchased land of the company. In 1898 he went to the Alaskan gold fields, making Dawson City his objective point, and for more than two years and a half delved for the precious metal. He returned to Washington in 1901, and is now succesfully engaged in farming a vast tract of Horse Heaven wheat land. Mr. Rolph was married at Kiona in 1894 to Ellen Ketcham, a daughter of Augustus C. and Lydia F. (Thurston) Ketcham. Both parents were born in New York State. Mr. Ketchum went to Wisconsin when a boy and in that state enlisted in the Fourth Wisconsin volunteers, serving in the Union army until the close of the war. He arose, through skill and bravery, from the rank of a private to that of a captain. After the war he followed farming in Wisconsin several years, then removed to Missouri, and in 1884 settled in the Horse Heaven region, Yakima county. His death occured in Kiona in 1892. Mrs. Ketchum was born in 1844, her parents being natives of Vermont. She was married at the age of twenty-three. Mrs. Rolph was born in Missouri, and educated in Yakima County; she was nineteen years old when married. She is a member of the Methodist Church. Mr. and Mrs. Rolph are the parents of three children Glen, Clifford,and Velma, all of whom were born at Kiona. Mr. Rolph is connected with two fraternal organizations, the Independant Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of American; politically, he is a Republican. He is a man of excellent standing among his neighbors and fellow men on account of his integrity, energy and progressiveness in all lines.' from pages 741-742 of 'An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima and Kittitas Counties,' published by Interstate Publishing Company in 1904.1 Rosina Putnam Porter died on 4 October 1909 at Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington, at age 74.1 She was buried at Kiona Cemetery, Benton City, Benton County, Washington; Burial was in the Kiona Cemetary, Kiona, Wash., where the headstone reads: 'Rosina Porter, his wife, July 12, 1835, Oct. 5, 1909.1' She died on 7 October 1909 at Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington, at age 74; "Mrs. J O Rolph at Tacoma Wash Oct 7th 1909 age 74 years 2 months 25 days" Rolph Jacob O Family Bible.1,2 She Rosina Putnam Porter was born 12 July 1835 in Oswego County, N.Y. (Rolph family Bible. Genealogy tables. Original undated). the daughter of Oliver D. Porter and Aurilla Putnam (the Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima, and Kittitas Counties reports, incorrectly, that she was 'a direct descendent of Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame'). Her family moved, sometime in the period 1861-62, to Mt. Vernon Township, Winona County Minn. Rosina Putnam Porter Rolph evidently stayed in Kiona after her husband died, until a short time before her death, when she went to stay with her daughter in Tacoma, Washington.1 She was 'Mrs. Rolph was a member of the Congregational church' (Obituary of Mrs. J.O. Rolph found on inside front cover of a book.1

Kelso of the well known firm of Kelso Brothers, engaged in the general store business in Kiona, and probably the most extensive wheat growers in the Yakima wheat belt, besides being operators along other lines, is among central Washington most substantial and influential citizens. He and his brothers have long been leaders in their community; established Kiona, bore their full share of responsibility in developing the county, and are recognized from one end of it to the other as men of progressive ideas, energetic action and public spirit. To such men the Yakima country owes mits present high reputation and its progress. The subject of this biography is a native of Ohio, born in 1858 to John A. and Martha (Miller) Kelso, of Irish extraction. The elder Kelso was also born in Ohio, 1832 being the year of his birth, and he has followed agricultural pursuits all his life. He came to Washington in 1884, and the year following took up his abode in the Walla Walla valley. At present he is engaged in market gardening at his place, two miles from the city of Walla Walla, where he and his wife are passing their declining years in comfort and peace. Martha (Miller) Kelso was also born in Ohio, and both educated and married in that state. William A. Kelso obtained a common school education in his native state, working upon the farm summers and attending school winters. IN the spring of 1878 he left Ohio, and during the next four years worked for different farmers in Minnesota. Returning to Ohio, he spent a short time at home, and then set out to investigate the Northwest, particularly the Willamette Valley. He was disappointed in his hopes of settling in Oregon, and came to Walla Walla. While in that city an old Minnesota friend induced him to visit Yakima County, with the result that in the spring of 1882 he filed a pre-emption claim to a tract in the Horse Heaven region, laying the foundation for his present fortune. Two years later his father and the remainder of the family came to Washington. It was then that the firm of Kelso Brothers was formed, the partners being William A. Kelso, Edward E., and Clinton C., and operations were begun on a large scale. The first year they cultivated betwen one thousand and fifteen hundred acres and alter increased their farm to six thousand acres, its present size. In the summer of 1894 they opened a general merchandise store at a point between Prosser and Kennewick, now known as Kiona, beginning in a small way. Wiliam A. was placed in charge, and so well was the enterprise received that a rapid growth resulted. The firm leased its immense wheat farm in 1900, but continued to operate along other lines and increased the mercantile stock to one of twenty thousand dollar value. Mr. Kelso and Miss Mary E. Ketcham were united in mariage New Year's Day, 1895. Her parents, August C. and Lydia F. Ketcham, of German and English descent, respectively, were born in New York State and married in Wisconsin. Mr. Ketcham went to Wisconsin with his parents when a little boy and was there reared. He enlisted in the Fouth Wis. Infantry in 1861, and served his country throughout the civil war, attaining to the rank of Captain. Upon his return from war he was married and commenced farming. Subsequently he removed to Missouri and in 1884 immigrated to Washington; he died in Kiona in 1892. Mrs. Ketcham whose maiden name was Lydia F. Thurston, is still living, being in her sixtieth year. Mrs. Kelso was born in Wisconsin, educated in the common schools of Missouri and later in the Brookfield Academy, at the age of sixteen years began teaching school in Yakima county. She was thus engaged ten years, or until her marriage in 1894, at the age of twenty six. She has two brothers-- Henry T., working in the Kiona store, and Milton, at home; also two sisters-- Mrs. Ellen C. Rolph, living near Kiona, and Katherine, attending Whitman college. Mr. and Mrs. Kelso have four children, all born in Kiona-- Harland D., Nov. 20, 1896; Amy O., Nov. 18, 1898; Merle A., Dec. 10, 1900; and Wallis W., Feb. 2, 1903. Fraternally Mr. Kelso is connected with the Modern Woodman; politically he is a staunch Republican who has served his county two years, 1893-94, as county commisioner. Mr. and Mrs. Kelso are members of the Methodist Church. Besides a third interest in the Kiona store and the six thousand wheat farm, Mr. Kelso also owns a section of raw land in the Wenas valley, forty acres of raw land near Kennewick, forty acres of meadow land in the valley, and one hundred and fifty head of horses. Both Mr. Kelso and his wife are held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Mr. Kelso is in every respect one of Yakima's solid citizens, a man of sterling character and worth.' -- pp. 720-721 (portrait also) of An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima, and Kittitas Counties. . .Interstate Pub., 1904.1 Augustus Caesar Ketcham was a witness Obituary notice, in Rolph Family Bible. The date 'March 16' has been hand written into the notice. Lydia F. Ketchum March 16 Tuesday afternoon the friends of Mrs. Lydia F. Ketcham were shocked to learn that she had suddenly dropped dead at the home of her daughter, Mrs. L. C. Rolph. There has been much sickness at the Rolph home, with the measle and the whooping cough, and Mrs. Ketchum was aiding in caring for the ailing, as much as she could. Tuesday evening she complained of being tired, and the next instanct she dropped over, dead. Lydia F. Ketcham was born in St. Lawrence County, NY, on April 13, 1844. On February 18, 1866, she was married to Augustus C. Ketchum, at Kilbourne, Wisconsin. To this union were born seven children, two of which, with the father, have gone on before. The remaining five all reside in Benton County, either at Prosser or at Kiona. They are Mrs. Mary E. Kelso, Mrs. Ellen Rolph, Henry Ketcham, Kate Ketcham, and Milton Ketcham. Mrs. Ketcham was well liked and loved by all who knew her, and her acquaintances were many. All join in sorrow with the bereaved, at the loss of their mother, who was so true and good a mother. Her many grandchildren have also lost a friend that is a loss indeed. Funeral was from the Methodist Church this morning at eleven o'clock. Of the church she was a life-long and faithful member, and the bereaved can find comfort in the knowledge that she has only gone on before, and awaits them on the other shore.' with Lydia Fletcher Thurston on 17 March 1915.1 Augustus Caesar Ketcham was buried at Yakima, Yakima County, Washington; Gravestone in Tahoma Cemetery has Ketcham Augustus C March 6 1840 Feb 15 1893; Lydia F Apr 13 1844 Mar 16, 1915; also Capt AC Ketcham Co D, Wis Calvary.1 He Handwritten notes of Geneva Ketcham Work (Ketcham L) - 'The family were most of them born in Missouri. They came west in a covered wagon. Milton told me many times of that - he was 4 years old then. He said they took up a home on Horse Heaven Hill somewhere near the highway goes now south of Prosser. I used to know where there buildings were. They lived there a few years. Aunt Libby tuaght school in Yakima. They did their hauliing from Yakima by horse teams making the trip in 2 or 3 days. They then moved to Benton on the old place where I lived when Milton and I married. Grandpa Ketcham passed away there when Milton was about 14 years old.1 ' He was Methodist Episcopal.1

Rolph, living in the Kiona canal district, two miles west of Kiona, Washington, is a native of Minnesota, born in 1870. His father, Osborn J. Rolph, was born in New York State in the year 1829. In 1852 he crossed the Plains with an ox team to the gold fields of California. After spending several years in the far West, he returned to Minnesota and there married Rosina Putnam Porter, a direct descendant of Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame. In answer to his country's call for volunteers, he enlisted in Company M, First Minnesota volunteers, and served until the close of the strugle.

He is a man of excellent standing among his neighbors and fellow men on account of his integrity, energy and progressiveness in all lines.' from pages 741-742 of 'An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima and Kittitas Counties,' published by Interstate Publishing Company in 1904.1 Lydia Fletcher Thurston is mentioned in the biography of William Anderson Kelso; 'William A. Kelso of the well known firm of Kelso Brothers, engaged in the general store business in Kiona, and probably the most extensive wheat growers in the Yakima wheat belt, besides being operators along other lines, is among central Washington most substantial and influential citizens. He and his brothers have long been leaders in their community; established Kiona, bore their full share of responsibility in developing the county, and are recognized from one end of it to the other as men of progressive ideas, energetic action and public spirit. To such men the Yakima country owes mits present high reputation and its progress. The subject of this biography is a native of Ohio, born in 1858 to John A. and Martha (Miller) Kelso, of Irish extraction. The elder Kelso was also born in Ohio, 1832 being the year of his birth, and he has followed agricultural pursuits all his life. He came to Washington in 1884, and the year following took up his abode in the Walla Walla valley. At present he is engaged in market gardening at his place, two miles from the city of Walla Walla, where he and his wife are passing their declining years in comfort and peace. Martha (Miller) Kelso was also born in Ohio, and both educated and married in that state. William A. Kelso obtained a common school education in his native state, working upon the farm summers and attending school winters. IN the spring of 1878 he left Ohio, and during the next four years worked for different farmers in Minnesota. Returning to Ohio, he spent a short time at home, and then set out to investigate the Northwest, particularly the Willamette Valley. He was disappointed in his hopes of settling in Oregon, and came to Walla Walla. While in that city an old Minnesota friend induced him to visit Yakima County, with the result that in the spring of 1882 he filed a pre-emption claim to a tract in the Horse Heaven region, laying the foundation for his present fortune. Two years later his father and the remainder of the family came to Washington. It was then that the firm of Kelso Brothers was formed, the partners being William A. Kelso, Edward E., and Clinton C., and operations were begun on a large scale. The first year they cultivated betwen one thousand and fifteen hundred acres and alter increased their farm to six thousand acres, its present size. In the summer of 1894 they opened a general merchandise store at a point between Prosser and Kennewick, now known as Kiona, beginning in a small way. Wiliam A. was placed in charge, and so well was the enterprise received that a rapid growth resulted. The firm leased its immense wheat farm in 1900, but continued to operate along other lines and increased the mercantile stock to one of twenty thousand dollar value. Mr. Kelso and Miss Mary E. Ketcham were united in mariage New Year's Day, 1895. Her parents, August C. and Lydia F. Ketcham, of German and English descent, respectively, were born in New York State and married in Wisconsin. Mr. Ketcham went to Wisconsin with his parents when a little boy and was there reared. He enlisted in the Fouth Wis. Infantry in 1861, and served his country throughout the civil war, attaining to the rank of Captain. Upon his return from war he was married and commenced farming. Subsequently he removed to Missouri and in 1884 immigrated to Washington; he died in Kiona in 1892. Mrs. Ketcham whose maiden name was Lydia F. Thurston, is still living, being in her sixtieth year. Mrs. Kelso was born in Wisconsin, educated in the common schools of Missouri and later in the Brookfield Academy, at the age of sixteen years began teaching school in Yakima county. She was thus engaged ten years, or until her marriage in 1894, at the age of twenty six. She has two brothers-- Henry T., working in the Kiona store, and Milton, at home; also two sisters-- Mrs. Ellen C. Rolph, living near Kiona, and Katherine, attending Whitman college. Mr. and Mrs. Kelso have four children, all born in Kiona-- Harland D., Nov. 20, 1896; Amy O., Nov. 18, 1898; Merle A., Dec. 10, 1900; and Wallis W., Feb. 2, 1903. Fraternally Mr. Kelso is connected with the Modern Woodman; politically he is a staunch Republican who has served his county two years, 1893-94, as county commisioner. Mr. and Mrs. Kelso are members of the Methodist Church. Besides a third interest in the Kiona store and the six thousand wheat farm, Mr. Kelso also owns a section of raw land in the Wenas valley, forty acres of raw land near Kennewick, forty acres of meadow land in the valley, and one hundred and fifty head of horses. Both Mr. Kelso and his wife are held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Mr. Kelso is in every respect one of Yakima's solid citizens, a man of sterling character and worth.' -- pp. 720-721 (portrait also) of An Illustrated History of Klickitat, Yakima, and Kittitas Counties. . .Interstate Pub., 1904.1 Lydia was listed as the head of a family on the 1910 Census at Prosser, Benton County, Washington.

     Jasper Elias Mowery was Marriage; Person Source.2 Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID A85DBC426DDD1743A23B5B2255F0E1CDF49D. 'Once upon a time a family decided to seek their fortune in the 'New Western States.' The father who had been working in a Grainery came, with his brother Cicero, to Richland, Washington where he bot land and started building a house. As soon as the roof was over one room, the father sent for his wife and nine children. They tilled the land and planted an orchard. This was in the year 1910. The family was Jasper Elias Mowery and his wife, the former Mary Elizabeth Brown. Their home had been blessed with nine children namely Zola May 2/5/1895 Zada Florence 2/12/1896 Floyd Wayne 11/26/1898 Hilbert Harrison 4/14/1901 Teddy Clifford 9/25/1902 Beatrice Portia 3/6/1904 Bryan Jennings 6/10/1906 Mary Pearl 1/15/1908 Doyl Owen 10/6/1909 Then to round out the 5 and 5 on July 27, 1911, a girl was born which they named Erma Lucille. By this time the roof was over all the house altho the parlour had to be used as the Living Room and the Living Room became a large kitchen with a large table which was always 'well equipped' for the family and any friends who should happen by. Also many beggars found their way to our door where they always found a good meal in the shade under a tree. All the children attended the Richland Schools. Wayne was salutatorian of his class (there were 3 in the class!) and Doyl was Valedictorian of his class. Bee and Erma atended Ellensburg Normal School and became teachers -- Bee taught in Twisp and Richland and Erma taught 4th grade in Richland for 4 years and then was appointed Assistant County Superintendent of Schools of Benton County which position she held for six years.' Mrs. Erma Rolph, handwriten manuscript of her reminiscences.3 He Jasper Elias Mowery was born 02 Sep 1869, at Ullin, Illinois, the son of Paul Mowery and Mary Catherine Cruse. His father farmed a spread near Ullin. He met Mary Brown, according to his daughter Zola Petett, 'at a school house gathering on the last day of school up in mother's vicinity (Letter from Zola Petett to Gary Rolph, 20 March 1972--Ref Mowery-2). They were married in Jonesboro, Ill, 21 March 1894. He built a nice home in Mill Creek; however, after coming west and leaving some of their belongings behind a fire gutted the place. Mary was a member of the Congregational (Mowery-4) and then (later, perhaps) of the Methodist Episcopal Church (information from Erma Mowery Rolph; see also Tri-City Herald, Wed. 20 Dec. 1961). Zada Loucks recalls 'Mother. . .was busy staying home with the little ones. Think we were brot up under the Law. We wouldn't do this or that not even sewing a button on a garment (on the Sabbath)' (Mowery-4). Jasper made many trips west, and enjoyed traveling. I am not sure how he learned of Richland, Washington; Zada suggests 'probably some salesman' (Mowery-4). He went out first with his brother Cicero Mowery, acquired a home place, 'had the present house started, then sent for mother and I think 9 of us kids by train to Kennewick, then cars to Richland' (Mowery-4). The move was completed in March, 1910. Jasper farmed the Richland property until 1943, when the Atomic Energy Commission moved into Richland and bought all the land--so Jasper and his family 'moved to Grandview in Nov., 1943' (Information from Erma Mowery Rolph--Mowery 6). That same year he had a stroke. Jasper died 8 June 1948, at 8;10 a.m.in Yakima, Washington. Jasper was a member of the Kennewick Masonic Lodge, and the order of Odd Fellows I.O.O.F. between 1869 and 1948.1 Jasper Elias Mowery was born 2 Sep 1869, at Ullin, Illinois, the son of Paul Mowery and Mary Catherine Cruse.

He built a nice home in Mill Creek, but after the family moved to Washington, leaving some of their possessions behind, a fire gutted the house." Dillow, p. 208 between 1895 and 1910 at Mill Creek, Union County, Illinois.4 He was associated with Cicero Washington Mowery and May McCartney "Cicero was a farmer in the Ullin Township, where he is found in the 1900 census records. He then owned a grain mill in Wetaug, but after it burned, the family moved to Anna, where he is on the 1910 census as a traveling meat salesman. Cicero made a trip to Washington with his brother Jasper, but returned to Anna andhad extensive peach orchards south of the city, while Jasper remained in Washington and grew apples. May became ill, and after being examined by doctors at her home in Anna, was found to have mental problems on 16 Aug 1906. She was admitted to what is now Choate Mental Health and Developmental Center. The doctor's report states that she was hysterical, was always nervous and suffered from delusions of persecution and optical illusions. She was discharged from the hospital on 3 Dec 1906, "her mind much improved," but was recommitted on 13 Sep 1909. In August of 1910 Cicero was appointed her conservator to enable him to collect an insurance claim from her property whih had been destroyed in a fire." between 1900 and 1950 at Union County, Illinois.8 Jasper was listed as the head of a family on the 1900 Census at Enumeration District 103, Mill Creek Village, Union County, Illinois. 94 94 Mowery Jasper E head white male Sep 1869 30 married 6 yrs IL IL IL grain dealer 0 months unemployed can read write speak English owns free house;

Letter of Cliff Mowery to Martha at E Benton Historical Society, undated but assuming c 1975.10 He lived between 1909 and 1948 at Benton County, Washington; IL, WA (moved to Richland 3/1910; to Grandview 11/1943). Moved to Richland in March, 1910 (where he wished to raise apples, acc to [Konrad Dillow], Descendants of Michael Hartman Dillow- part II, p. 31); A. S. Murray built them a house, finished by J.E. and his sons, on Van Giesen St; farmed until 1943; Atomic Energy Commission moved into Richland, 1943 (bought all the land); moved to Grandview in Nov. 1943; had stroke in 1943; died June 8, 1948, at 8;10 a.m.' (Infor. from Mrs. Erma Rolph)
"Jasper made many trips west, and enjoyed traveling. It is not clear how he learned of Richland, WA but Zada suggested it was probably through a salesman. He went out first with his brother Cicero Mowery, acquired land, had the home started, and then sent for Mary. In March of 1910 Mary and the nine children traveled by train to Kennewick, then in cars to Richland. Out of acreage that was covered in sage brush and jack rabbits, Jasper converted it into a productive family farm and home. He planted an apple orchard, and farmed the Richland propety until November of 1943, when the Atomic Energy Commission moved into Richland and bought all the land, when they moved to Grandview. Later that same year, Jasper suffered a stroke." Dillow Family;p. 209.11,3,12 He was a witness My earliest recollection in 1910 Richland was mostly in sagebruch.

Letter of Cliff Mowery to Martha at E benton Historical Society, undated but assuming c 1975.1 He was Orchidist. between 1910 and 1948.1 "Once upon a time a family decided to seek their fortune in the New Western states. The father who had been working in a Grainery came, with his brother Cicero, to Richland, Washington, where he bought land and started building a house. As soon as the roof was over one room, the father sent for his wife and nine children. They tilled the land and planted an orchard. This was in the year 1910. The family was Jasper Elias Mowery and his wife, the former Mary Elizabeth Brown. Their homem had been blessed with nine children namely Zola May (2/5/1895) Zada Florence (2/12/1896), Floyd Wayne (11/26/1898), Hilbert Harrison (4/14/1901), Teddy Clifford (9/25/1902), Beatrice Portia (3/6/1904), Bryan Jennings (6/10/1906); Mary Pearl (1/15/1908), Doyl Owen (10/6/1909). Then to round out the 5 and 5 on July 27, 1911, a girl was born which they named Erma Lucille. By this time the roof was over all the house altho the parlour had to be used as the living room and the Living Room became a large kitchen with a large table which was always 'well equipped' for the family and any friends who should happen by. Also many beggars found their way to our door where they always found a good meal in the shade under a tree.
All the children attended the Richland schools. Wayne was salutatorian of his class (there were 3 in the class!) and Doyl was Valedictorian of hisi class. Bee and Erma attended Ellensburg Normal School and became teachers. Bee taught in Twisp and Richland and Erma taught 4th grade in Richland for 4 years and then waqs appointed Assistant County Superintendent of Schools of Benton County which position she held for six years." - Mrs. Erma Rolph, handwritten manuscript of her reminiscences (created sometime around 1970, Richland, Washington).1 Jasper and Mary immigrated, in March 1910.

He was hospitalized at the convalescent camp at Memphis Tennessee on 17 Mar 1863, and was subsequently discharged on 13 May 1863, with a disability at Benton Barracks, St. Louis, MO, suffering from consumption in both lungs. The physician who signed his certificate of disability said he had 'tuberculosis - very much emaciated- result of exposure in service. He is totally unfit for labor.' His service records describe Paul as being 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a dark complexion, grey eyes and black hair. In 1883, Paul applied for a pension, which began at $6.00 a month. The pension was increased to $12.00 as he became more disabled. His neighbors, Phil and Eli Sowers, stated that his 'physical condition has ben such that he has not been able to perform manual labor for moer than one third of his time.' His doctors were George Augustine and M. L. Winstead of Wetaug, IL,and in 1903, Dr. Winstead stated that he had treated Paulfor rheumatism, and that he was suffering from 'arterial sclerosis of the smaller branches supplying the brain, and that he was diseased from this cause and from anemia of the brain consequent on deficient blood supply also causing derangement of the entire nervous system."10,4 He was Union Army (Civil War) on 14 August 1862.11 He was Union Army (Civil War) Type: Enlisted on 14 August 1862.

She and her husband, Elijah Mill r, settled on a farm in Meisenheimer Twp., UCI.--Konrad Dillow

"In the summer of 1865, after her father's death Amey stayed on the farm with her brother Paul Mowery where they and [sic] raised a meager corn crop. Amey was just sixteen, and though her brother was older, he had just received a discharge with disability from his service in the Civil War, and as unable to do much work as he recuperated. Conditions on the farm became so unpleasant that Amey went to live with her stepfather's father, Peter Dillow, Sr., in Springville, IL. There she suffered from a severe case of pneumonia, from which she never fully recovered, and which she was the eventual cause of her death. Amey also livd with Mary Surlena and Peter Dillow Jr., and with the family of Dr. Griffin Avett of Mill Creek. She remained with Dr. Avett until her marriage in 1869. He had moved from Tennesse to Union co in 1867 and established a Medical Practice in Mill Creek. Dr. Avett died in 1877, when he was thrown from his horse while returning from a saloon in Mill Creek. His obituary states that he "could have made a fortune had it not been for his sins, one of strong drink and conival company.' Dr. Avett's only son, William P Avett, married Mary Elizabeth Mowery a daughter of Edward Mowery, Amey's uncle.".12,13 He married Mary Catherine Cruse, daughter of Peter M Cruse and Pena Carolina Lentz, on 18 April 1867 at Pulaski County, Illinois.

"Following his father's death in 1864, Paul was chosen song leader of his church, a position he held until age and sickness incapaciated him. His family were members of the Lutheran church at Mt. Pisgah but in 1881, they were among those who helped build the German Reformd Church in Wetaug, to which Paul pledged $50.00 to help pay for the building. In 1903 they began attending the Beech Grove Methodist Episcopal Church, which had been organized less than a mile from their home. When Paul became old, he had several paralytial strokes, making walking and speaking difficult. Even in this condition, he remained a strong witness to his faith by insisting on saying a prayer before each meal, which had been a lifelong custom. He eventually became senile, and at one time was seen sitting in his back yard with a stick in his hands with which, in his mind, he was shooting Confederate soldiers."
FindAGrave: Inscription: mowery Paul mowery Feb 25 1844 - Jan 1 1911.19,5,6 He was buried at Saint Johns Lutheran Cemetery, Dongola, Union County, Illinois.1 He In Civil War--Letter of Mrs. Elizabeth Mowery (Brown H). Information from Gerald Mowery given to Erma Rolph states that Paul 'Enlisted March, 1861?, or14 Aug 1862 ? in Co. A 109th Illinois Infantry Regiment,' and was 'discharged 18 May 1863 from the army for dystentery (medical discharge).' Other sources include 'Lest We Forget,' 'Mowery-Dillow Chronology,' marriage license (license dated 18 April 1867; certificate reads that marriage performed 22 April, 1867, by P.H. Kurn(?), 'a minister of the gospel'), and 'Lest We Forget.' Gerald Mowery information to Erma Rolph states that he 'lived in Elco Precinct in Alexander County, Ill., in 1880' (perhaps Gerald got this from the 1880 census?; cf also letter from Lola Miller to Gerald Mowery)) 'Paul Mowery grew to manhood on his father's farm. He enlisted in the Civil War and served nine months when he was discharged because of disability. He was not 21 when his father died but was soon elected church officer in his father's place, a pos tion he held until age and sickness incapacitated him. In this position he 'set the tunes' in church. When he became old he had several paralytic strokes and lost his mind, making his condition most pitiable, but he continued to offer thanks at the table as had been his life-long habit.' Chronology, p. 14 Letter from Ella Dexter to Gerald Mowery, quoting Mowery family Bible, states Paul was 'born Feb. 25, 1844, 3 1/2 miles Northwest of Ullin, Ill.' From [Konrad Dillow], Descendants of Michael Hartman Dillow: A History of the North Carolina Dillow Line [n.p; n.d.]., part II, p. 30: 'Paul replaced his father as song leader at St. John's Church. In his old age, Paul had several disabling strokes, but it was said he continued to offer thanks at the table, as was his lifelong custom. On August 14, 1862 Paul enlisted at Camp Anna with Co A 109 Regt. Il Inf. On May 13, 1863, he was discharged at Benton Barracks, MO for disability (consumption in both lungs) after a hospital stay at Memphis, TN. On August 15 1883 he filed for a disability pension which was granted effective Aug. 20, 1883. His widow Mary Catherine filed for a widow's pension on Feb. 9, 1911. The claim was granted.' Konrad Dillow has Paul's death date as 1 Jan. Another source has 11 Jan.1 He was German Reformed; song leader at St. John's church after 1864.1

In one such notation, she quotes from the poet Harlan Miller: 'Yes, they live on- their influence is immeasurable. Each created a small inviable kingdom in our memories and their couage, their grace, their compassion, will speak and be inherited till the end of time.'

'Lasting Impressions of My Mother, Zola May Petett, February 5, 1895 to May 14 [sic], 1982' by Ron Petett [typed copy in possession of Mrs. Erma Rolph; evidently made as a tribute to be read at Zola's funeral] My mother was born in the little town of Mill Creek, Illinois on February 5, 1895. She was the oldest child of a family of ten children born to the union of Jasper and Mary Mowery. She lived her first 15 years in this southern Illinis area. This was a time of many happy remembrances of church and school activities and her family and friends. At the age of 15, she moved with her family to the then tiny Richland, Washington on the banks of the Columbia River. It was here that the family developed an acreage that was covered with sage brush and jack rabbits into a productive family farm and home. Zola or 'Shorty' as many knew her then, shared many long hours working in the berry, asparagus and melon fields. She also became a hard worker in the packing sheds and orchards. She was very proud of these years and had many joyful stories to tell about these times. It was at Richland that she met and fell in love with Elmer Jesse Petett, who was in her eyes, 'the prettiest man I've every seen.' On June 29, 1921, they were married and moved to Long Beach, California, where Elmer was stationed in the Navy. They returned to Richland after he was discharged and lived mostly in that area until 1936 when they moved to Renton. Their marriage survived and was strengthened by the struggles of the Great Depression of the 30's. Their marriage lasted a month over 52 years until July 30, 1973 when death took her beloved 'Papa Elmer.' This marriage produced 7 children, 25 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, with 'one still in the nest' as Mama would say. Those of us who knew her well, whether we called her Sis, or Shorty, Zola or Aunt Zolie, Mama or Grandma, or Mrs. Petett, will always remember her for the strong feeling of love and kindness that she showed for us. She is a woman we can all take inspiration from; she truly lived each day guided by God and the Golden Rule. The joys and triumphs and hurts of all her loved ones became hers. She had no enemies. Mama was an excellent cook and took great pleasure in setting a good table. Simple foods became gourmet at her hands. I especially remember fried chicken and all kinds of delicious pies--apple, lemon meringe, and wild blackberry. Her homemade ice cream was neighborhood famous. Mama loved a good time with people she loved around her. She was a happy, patient and undemanding person. She got much enjoyment from the simple things in life. She especially enjoyed beautiful flowers and the things of nature. She remained alert to the end and watched the news daily to keep up on things. She broke her hip in February and showed much courage and determination in her recovery from that injury. Mama had a hobby which became almost a ritual. She recorded daily the weather conditions as reported by Ray Ramsey. She also kept a little journal with notations about visits from family and friends. At the end of each of these notations she almost always made a testament of love for that person or persons. I'd like to make two last notations in her records for her May 19, 1982 -- High temperature 64° Low temperature 49° Mostly sunny today with little wind, a beautiful day for rejoining Papa. May 22, 1982, 'Many of my loving friends, neighbors, and relatives came to see me today. I was so happy to see them all again and I love them all so very, very much.' I would add, from the poet Harlan Millar 'Yes, they live on -- their influence is immeasurable. Each created a small inviable kingdom in our memories and their courage, their grace, their compassion will Speak and be inherited till this end of time.'.4 She was buried on 22 May 1982 at Renton, King County, Washington.1 She Zola and Elmer's 50th anniversary reception was held on July 7, 1971 'Lasting Impressions of My Mother, Zola May Petett, February 5, 1895 to May 14 [sic], 1982' by Ron Petett [typed copy in possession of Mrs. Erma Rolph; evidently made as a tribute to be read at Zola's funeral] My mother was born in the little town of Mill Creek, Illinois on February 5, 1895.

So he never married -- Gary Rolph, Recollections.2 He was Farmer; Custodian.1 "My earliest recollection in 1910 Richland was mostly in sagebrush. My father Jasper E. Mowery left Mill Creek IL in 1909 and came out west. Came to Richland and bought a 10 acre tract of sagebrush. In 1910 in the spring my parents left Mill Creek and with nine children arrived in Richland. Erma my youngest sister was born in 1911 in Richland. A. S. Murray built our home. One year was especially difficult when it froze the latter part of May and froze all of our straw berries. We used to haul a wagon load of strawberries to Kennewick every night. We would sleep on the way back and let the team bring us back. One night we woke up and the team had taken another road and we were way south of town in a farmer's place and the team was calmly eationg hay at his haystack."

They retired in 1964 and returned to California.

Her husband installed an organ on the "Silver Fin" and she entertained the troll fleet at anchor in the evenings. The family wishes to thank her Ketchikan care giver Kathy Wyle for her exceptional care of their mother and grandmother. The family also wishes to give a special thanks to granddaughter Jackie Beasley and husband Jim whose love and unselfish dedication was responsible for Marys well being and longevity. She had been a part of their daily family lives since 1998.
