And with no self pity or complaint. That was a remarkable man.

# 2 - George
Wednesday 22 (Note by Merle: Probably 2/22/35 or 36-- our year in NH, VT, and NY)
Mother (Merle) wrote you was interested to know of ancestors. Well, great-great grandpa Kelso, or possibly G-G-G grandpa, came from Ireland, probably Scotch-Irish as strongly Protestant and not Catholic; and Great Grandma Kelso was of German descent.
My mother's and father's families botgh descended from early pilgrims to New England states. Mother's family moved west as far as the St. Lawrence River in NY State, to Heuvelton, from Vermont. (Heuvelton is near Ogdensburg, on the St. Lawrence River). Grandma's mother was a Greeley, straight descendant from Horace Greeley (Go west, young man, go west). Grandmother's (Merle's grandmother) name was Thurston, rather think of English descent. Grandfather's side was Ketcham, also early New England settlers, taken when small children west as far as Wisconsin. I think they were the side of my family descended from Miles Standish. I know the Miles Standish book was given not long ago to Uncle Henry. Aunt Lillian was talking about it this winter.
Your grandma has grown pretty forgetful. Her eyes are also pretty poor so she has to spend plenty of time on the bed with them closed and resting. Surely makes me happy you are such a well, active boy. Poor Stanley is surely having hay fever badly. I can't help feeling it is reaching the stage of sinus trouble. Working and dust in the bank has made it much worse. It needs a peppy boy to wake us up, don't you think? This A.M. though didn't Grandpa call Stan and get him down to the bank to work a few minutes after 7 o'clock meant to be there at 8 A.M. He phoned Grandpa to get his gloves on; there would be trouble over that hour of lost sleep; at noon today. Your loving grandma.2 Something of Grandpa
Fourscore and four years ago there was born in a little town in Richmond County, Ohio, a man who was destined to be my grandfather. His parents were of typical American stock, a mixture of two or three ancestries. They were farm folk, hard working and self-reliant and Grandfather hd little opportunity for schooling, finishing only the grades. I know little about the years of his life spent in Ohio and Minnesota. In February of 1882, Grandfather came west with his parents and settled near Walla Walla, Washington. In his early thirties he started aquiring property in what was then Yakima County and served as Commissioner of that county, which comprised what is now three separate counties. He was quite eluisive, but a schoolmarm named Ketcham finally caught him, and he was married in 1895 at the age of 37. He now settled down to raising a family and gaining further business interests. Of the former (he) had three boys and three girls; of the latter he came to own a hotel, general store, hardware and furniture store, livery stable, a fruit farm and about 10,000 acres of choice wheat land. Then disaster struck the little town - a fire wiped out all his belongings; he couragously re-built, though on a smaller scale, always working long hours back and forth between town and farm properties, setting the pace in his community by sending his children through college and actively being the civic leader. Then a seconf fire again destroyed his property. After this he was persuaded to move still farther west. In Chehalis, with his grown children wanting to retire, he stays in true character by taking the humble task of caretaker in his beloved Methodist church. He is not a grandfather, and from now on these will be my memory sketches of him. Although in his 70's he joined me in sandlot baseball, snowballing or whatever was in season. I lived under his roof during my early school days and his patience and humor couldn't be surpassed. There in a strange town, he soon became known to everyone as "Dad" Kelso. Although short, he is at 84 sturdy and erect. His unflagging interest in all activities of the world today; his great love of children and animals; his deep religous feeling which he lives every day, not just on Sunday; and his joy in repariing anything amiss about the home (this extends to his neighbor's and their children's belongings). While the nation is just learning to save, he has done so for years, so that his woodshed, which is a family joke, is a mixture of machine shop, a pawn shop, and a junk yard. And his tender consideration for his wife, my grandma all these are factors that have kept him young both in spirit and actions.
His speech, which has the flavor of Will Rogers; his laugh, which is utterly contagious, and his disregard of his growing deafness are more of his little traits. The feelings of his admiring family are well expressed in the words of a doctor who examined him recently, 'I only hope that I'm the man you are when I reach your age.' To us who love him we mean that in the broadest sense. When he reaches the age of 100 I hope that I can write a biography worthy of William A. Kelso the best grandfather a boy every had.
(This in pencil from his teacher when she graded him for it. 'George, perhaps your grandfather will not live until he is one hundred so I suggest that you read this sketch now with your maytime greetings, and would you mind adding mine. I like your grandfather very much. B. Lee.)2 George Ames Sears married Mary Ann Deggeller in 1951 at Washington.1 George Ames Sears died on 30 May 1998 at Sausalito, Marin County, California, at age 71; Kelso family information has 28 May; Social Security Death INdex has Name: George A.

Nathaniel Woodward1

M, b. 1585, d. between 18 July 1661 and 11 December 1675
     Nathaniel Woodward was born in 1585 at Rushden, Northamptonshire, England; Nathaniel Woodward is possibly the son of Lambert and Isabell (Smith) Woodward and possibly the grandson of Thomas and Agnes (Johnson?) Woodward.2 He and Margaret Lawrence were resided1 between 1608 and 1620 at Rushden, Northamptonshire, England.2 Nathaniel Woodward married Margaret Lawrence on 19 September 1608 at Rushden, Northamptonshire, England.3 Nathaniel Woodward and Margaret Lawrence were resided1 Nathaniel Woodward received financial assistance from the vestry in Puddington. The last year they appear on the list is 1629 between 1620 and 1633 at Puddington, Bedfordshire, England.2 Nathaniel Woodward seems to have been the standard bearer and later gallant captain of the Warwich Yeoman Guards, and was founder, or a prominent supporter of the Standish Hall branch of these guards. He was a strong Puritan and apparently hot-headed for he was cited in 1632 by a bench of Anglican Bishops to the hall of Lord de Birlmingham to take oath to keep his Puritan teachings wihtin his own family and home. Unwilling to do this and heavily fined by the Ecclesisstical court, he gave notice with his brother, Ezekiel, likwise cited, that he would leave England for good. Some time later, Lord de Bradford of Castle Bromwich near Birmingham, England, who was interested in Nathaniel because of his gallant service in the Warwich Guards, ordered remittance of the fines levied against Nathaniel and Ezekiel and severely censured the Warwickshire Episcopal Court for its arbitrary procedure. A Grand Jury thereupon caused the British Government of Charles I to grant lands inb New England to the brothers Nathaniel and Ezekiel, now freemen. It is said that there Royal Grants were made in 1642 in the township of Roxbury, Mass.4 Nathaniel, Margaret, Nathaniel, John, Robert and Ezekiel immigrated, in 1633. Destination: an unknown place .3 Nathaniel Woodward and Margaret Lawrence were carpenter
ON 18 December 1637 Boston selectmen "agreed that John Woodward and Roberte Woodward, the sons of Nathaniell Woodward, shall have houseplots alloted them" (BTR 1:24). These two records mark the first appearance of the elder Nathaniel."
"On 4 January 1659/60 'Nathaniel Woodward of Boston in New England. . .carpenter & Margaret his wife sold to James Penniman a parcel of land in Boston which may be identified as a portion of the Book of Possessions holding of the elder Nathaniel (SLR 3:364). ON 18 July 1660 this same couple sold to John Marion the remainer of this piece of land (SPR 3:519). We conclude then that Nathaniel the elder maintained a continuous residence in Boston from 1645 to 1660 at least, and so there would have been no need to admit him as an inhabitant in early 1658." between 1633 and 1661 at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.2 Nathaniel Woodward died between 18 July 1661 and 11 December 1675 at Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts; 18 JUL 1661 in poss. Boston, Suffolk Co., MA
"The inventory of the estate of Nathaniel Woodward of Boston was taken on 11 Dec 1675, and was presented at court by Rachel Harwood [SPR 5:299). Since the younger Nathaniel was alive as late as 1686 [BrLR 3:8] this must be the estate of the elder Nathaniel, still attended by his remarried daughter-in-law."2,5
