Findings: To Ronnie's loved ones
Findings: The passing of Ronnie is like the closing of a good book, good to the very end.
Findings: I should do wrong to his memory were I to talk of mourning. It would not be in keeping wiht his light hearted ways, his cheerful spirit, and his love as a son, brother, nephew, and as a dear little boy who loved us all.
Findings: I know that I am better and the world is better, because he lived.
Findings: I'm truly so grateful for his sweetness, his gentle and kindly manner, his warm tender heart, his winning smile, his limitless love & faith in his family.
Findings: Heavens door stands ajar tonight; another Pilgrim of earth has entered in. A little figure winds his way forward to the great white throne - I hear an angelic chorus - I hear a voice - the voice of One whom Ronnie offered his little prayers at bedtime. -
Findings: "Come, enter into Everlasting Life." Margaret
Was born at Mathias logging camp somewhere near Webb, Mississippi. Information from Aunt Florence. Families seemed to have moved back and forth across the Miss River working in timber cutting. At this time a lot of railroad building was going on.
BIOGRAPHY: My father, Oscar L. McMillan Jr., was born at "Mathias Logging Camp".
BIOGRAPHY: He came out to California in the CCC camps. There were 300 from back south, they arrived in Portland, Oregon by train, then they were put on trucks. When they arrived at their destination they were given their allotment of clothes and shoes and given the choice of an ax, shovel, etc. and put right to work on the fire line. Dad was first sent to the Crater Lake area. Then he was transferred to Crescent City. I have the 'Pictoral Review' for Company 5478 of Camp Gasquet. This was one of the companies stationed in Crescent City and Dad's picture is in it, along with Louis Dodd, Leon Hardin, and Hollis Rhodus.
BIOGRAPHY: After he left the CCC camps. He got a job at the Surf Hotel as a dishwasher, and he told the story of serving Clarke Gable crab in the Surf Hotel.
BIOGRAPHY: His next job was working in a logging camp in Roseburg, Oregon, cooking and doing dishes. The story goes that he loved this job, because he would get to go fishing and could catch enough fish in one day for a whole meal for those hungry loggers.
Dad's, Mac McMillan's, best friend, Charlie Baldwin, said that they would be sitting on a hill and Dad would remark, "Whoever made this knew what he was doing!".
