Jan 1814 in Butler Co. Kentucky. He married *SARAH "SALLIE" DULIMIE abt 1775

Notes for *THOMAS NEEL:

Records for the following Book come from the county court order book "A" and circuit court order book "A" and "B".

In the book "the county of Butler in the commonwealth of Kentucky" 1810-1814see the index for the pages the Neels are referred to. These pages are Pg18,A1,A8,A9,A13,A16,C12,D16,17 and 18. Thes mainly deal with survaying and building the local roads. George appears to be a survayer. A Thomas is mentioned as a road worker. This could be Thomas Sr who dies at age 46 or his son who is still a minor and marries in Aug 1814 and his Brother George gives his consent. George signs the marriage bond. Both the book and a copy of the marriage bond belong to me.

Notes for *THOMAS NEEL:

Washington Co. IL. 1820 Census Crooked Creek Township

1 free white male under 21 years of age

1 free white male 21 years and older

3 females

10 families down the list is William Taylor [step father and Abigail Waters

Rosannah's mother] and the next house is David Roper [husband of Elizabeth

sister of Rosannah] see their families to see the 1820 census.



It is possible that these families [Thomas Neel, William Taylor and David

Roper] followed or came together from Washington to Marion Counties. I suspect they might have been living very near the corner ofthe four counties [Washington, Clintion, Marion and Jefferson and enumerater may just have put them in Wash. on one census and Marion on another, but it does show they were at least in very close proximity. Convincing evidence that these families are related

Thomas B. Neal [Neel]



The gentleman whose name heads this review is one of the leading farmers in

his community in Marion County, and this volume would be incomplete were

there a failure to make mention of him and the enterprise with whic he is

identified. Tireless energy and honesty of purpose are the chief

characteristics of the man.



Thomas B. Neal, a native of Marion county, Illinois, was born October 31,

1830 the son of Thomas and Rossanna [Walters/Waters] Neal/Neel. The former



came to this county from Kentucky about 1828 and located near Owens Hill

where he spent the remainder of his life, having made a comfortable living

from his farming pursuits, being a hard worker and a man of highest

integrity. The Walters/Waters people were born in Georgia [census of 1850

says his mother was from So. Carolina] and came from that state to this

couny. The father and mother of our subject were married in Kentucky.



Thomas B. Neal our subject, was reared on a farm which he helped develop

from the wild country into which the father had moved, but this was an

industrious family and soon a good and productive farm was developed. His

early schooling was somewhat limited owing to the fact that it was necessary

for him to work on the farm and schools were of the most primitive type in

those days, taught only a few months out of each year. Our subject showed

his loyalty to the "old flag that has never touched the ground" during the

forties when this country was in war with Mexico. Being unable to restrain

his Patriotism when he heard the call for troops to fight the descendants of

the Montezumas, amd he is today one of the few highly honored survivors of

that famous conflict in the country, and it is indeed a privilege to meet

and to show proper courtesy to such heroes. [His brother William Calvin

searved with him in the same unit in the Mexican War] Mr. Neal enlisted in

Co. C, First Illinois Volunteer Regiment, and served with marked distinction

in the same throughout the war. He is now remembered by his government with

a pension of twenty dollars per month as the result of his valor in this

war. The only other living Mexican war veteran in Marion county besides our

subject is William Bundy.



After his experience in the army, Mr. Neal returned home and was married in

1851 to Julia H. Chandler whose people were from Wilson county, Tennessee.

To this union eight children were born , all deceased but four. Mr. Neal

first wife passed away May 2, 1898, and he was married again April 10, 1900,

to Manda S. Cozad. No children have been born to this union.



The names of the subject's children by his first wife follow: Alexander,

deceased; John A., deceased; Etta, Dilla, Rose A., deceased; Cora, Charley

and Ben, deceased. Our subject has six grandchildren and six

great-grandchildren, of whom he is justly proud. Mr. Neal owns a fine farm

of forty acres in Tonti township, which he has developed to a high state and

which has yielded him a comfortable living from year to year and enabled him

to lay up a competency for his old age. This place shows that a man of good

judgement has had its management in hand, and while he is now in the evening

of life he is able to still successiully manage his affairs. He lives in

section 9 of Tonti Township in a substantial farm house which is surrounded

by convenient outbuildings, and his farm is properly stocked with various

kinds of live stock and he delights to see the advancement for his community

and county, and he formerly took an active part in the affairs of the

Democratic party.

Notes for ALICE ALDORA "DORA" NEEL:



MY LIFE, BY DORA SMITH



Written in 1973



I was born in Mountain Grove, Missouri, Wright County to Thomas Neel, August

22, 1885. There were six children, three girls and three boys. Iwas the

third child. All have passed away but one brother an myself. he is six years

younger than me. He lives in Mountain Home, Arkansas. My mother passed awat

in 1906 and my father in 1932. We moved from Missouri in a covered wagon in

1895 and settled on a farm near near Mountain Home, Baxter Co., Arkansas. In

the year of 1894, Dad homesteaded 160 acres near Mountain Grove, Missouri

and built a log house. I got the rest of my schooling in a one room school

house. We had to study hard as we only had three months of school, from the

first of July until cotton picking time in October. Sometime we had only a

short term in the winter, but the weather was so cold we usually didn't make

it to school.



We all had jobs to do on the farm. I was married at Prestona, Missouri by a

Justice of the Peace to Robert James Smith July 13, 1902. My husband was a

farmer and raised cattle. We had five children. Dussie Schermerhorn was born

February 22, 1907. Faye Dewey was born August 21, 1913. Dale Robert was born

April 21. 1916. Dale passed away at three and a half years. Harley Dale was

born July 1, 1920, and was killed in an accident November 29, 1949, leaving

a wife and a little daughter. Robert James Jr. was born May 8, 1924, at

Redlands, California. The other children were born in Arkansas.



I raised a boy Jesse. He passed away three years ago. He was four years old

when he came to live with is in 1904. In 1910, my husband, and the two

children and I came to San Diego, Calif. We spent one year there, then we

went back to Arkansas in 1911. My husband decided we would come back to

California, so in 1916 we came to Hanford, Kings Co., California. That was

during World Wat l. We spent two years there. He then decided to go back and

farm for himself, but the cold weather he did not like, so in 1921 we sold

our fam and started back to California.



We left Mountain Home, Arkansas October 7, 1921. We went by covered wagon to

Parkis, Texas. We sold out teams, as we had two teams of mules. We had one

wagon and a nice covered hack that the children and I traveled in. My

brother, Frank, was traveling with us and helped drive our team.



We sold everything at Parkis, Texas, and took the train. We reached

Redlands, Calif. on February 1, 1922. We rented a house in Redlands for a

short time. On March 18, 1922, we moved to our new home with twenty acres of

apple orchards in Yucaipa. we lived there until Dec. 10, 1947, then came

North. [There was a chicken ranch along with the apple orchard.]



I was raised by Christian parents and was baptized August 14, 1919, in a

creek near Mountain Home, Arkansas by Br. H. McGehee. My daughter Dussie at

14 was baptized by the same man in 1920. Faye was baptized at age 14 in San

Bernardino, Calif. August 8, 1929, by Brother Riggs. Bob Jr. was baptized

August 10, 1939, in San Bernardino, Calif. by Bro. John Brinn. There were

only two families that were members of the Lord's Church when we came to

Yucaipa, [the Ellis and Beasley family- the Vinalls, Smith and a Mrs Ball.]

so we started a church and struggled along for several years. We all chipped

in and bought two lots for $45.00 and in 1940 Brother Lonnie Wolverton moved

there, and with his help, we built a church. My sister-in-law and I went

with him and borrowed enough money to build the church. We had over $1,000

in the bank and borrowed $1,500, and with free help, we built a nice small

church. The church grew until there was a bigger church built on Yucaipa

Boulevard. I also helped to start the church in Redlands, Calif. July 6,

1940. I went with Mason Emde to help start the church. I was there a few

weeks ago, and there was 479 attendance that day. Brother Jeff Walling is

the preacher there now.



We came to Eureka, Calif., in 1947 and lived on a small farm near Alton.

After my son's death, we bought a home on Sixth Street in Fortuna in 1950.

My husband passed away October 10, 1958. He was baptized by Brother Lyle

Bonner in August, 1955.



In 1960, I sold my house and moved to 10th St. in Fortuna. I have my

children Faye and Bob nearme, and I am blessed with twelve grandchildren,

eight great-grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.



I have had trouble and sorrow, I have bore it all with God's help. I am

getting old and feeble, and my steps are getting slow, but I go to church as

long as I can go.

Notes for CHARLES "CHARLIE" ALVA NEEL:



Have a copy of the hand written book that Walter Neel wrote in the last year

of his life. In the back of the book he talks about Charlie's death. Charlie

went each year to Texas to help with the harvest of the cotton crop on

relatives land. He was in charge of work crews. One of the men on the work

crew was Roy Fisher, He was a neighbor of Charlies in OK when Charlie lived

at Peggs. He was on the work crew picking cotton. He got drunk and came to

work that way and started a big fuss and was very unruley and no one could

handle him. The reason was that he was a very big man in statue and build.

Finally before it got more out of hand Charlie called the law. They came and

took him to sober up in the local jail over night. Charlie went the next day

and got him out and paid his fine. He went back to work and nothing more was

said about it. Later after everyone was back in Ok. Walter's wife was in the

hospital and Walter and Charlie went there to visit her and when they

returned for the day Walter brought him back to Tahlequah and Charlie got a

ride home. He was getting in the car to go home and Roy Fisher approched him

and started an argunment. He was still mad at Charlie for having him put in

jail. Charlie was small in statue and build. Fisher hit Charlie and the

second blow was so hard that he fell and landed on his head and it struck

the curb and his neck was broke and he died immediately. Roy Fisher was

tried and sentenced to four years in prison but only served 21 months. He

then moved to CA. Walter said that later he heard that Roy Fisher had died

in California. Talked to Walter's daughter Pauline and she gave me more

details and she went to the trial of Fisher with her father.

CHARGED IN DEATH OF CHARLIE NEEL



Manslaughter In First Degree is Charge Filed Against Roy Fisher



Roy Fisher, 32-year old farmer from Fort Gibson faced manslaughter charges

this week following the tragic death of a neighbor, Charlie Neel, 53, who

died in a street brawl here Saturday afternoon.



Witnesses of the attack Saturday told Sam Knight, investigating officer,

that Fisher accosted Neel while the older man was standing on a street

corner in the north part of town talking with friends. Fisher struck him

twice, the second blow knocking Neel to the pavement where he struck his

head on the curbing.



According to Dr. Robert McIntosh who made a post mortem examination he died

almost instantly of a broken neck verteba.



Fisher was arrested by Knight and taken to the city jail where he learned

for the first time that Neel had died.



The fight probably arose as the result of an old grudge over the ownership

of a piece of land. However, O. F. Bliss, Jr., county attorney, said that

the motive was vague.



Neel had been a resident of the county for some years. He is survived by his

widow, two daughters, Ola and Nola, of the home, and a son Otis, of Sedan,

Texas.



Funeral services were held in Gideon at 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and

interment was made in the Gideon cemetery. Both Neel and Fisher live in the

Gideon community. Funeral arrangements were made by the Reed-Culver Funeral

home.

FARMER KILLED IN FIST FIGHT HERE SATURDAY



Charlie Neel, 53, Died Instantly When Knocked Against Sidewalk



Charlie Neel, 53, a farmer near Peggs, died instantly, Saturday afternoon,

when he was hit by Roy Fisher, 32, a farmer of the same neighborhood, and

knocked to the sidewalk. The impact of Neel's head against the concrete

fractured his neck, according to County Attorney C. F. Bliss.



Fisher was charged wit first degree manslaughter in Justice of the Peace

Court Monday.



Funeral services for Neel were held at Gideon Wednesday afternoon.

TAHLEQUAH FARMER IS SLAIN SATRUDAY



Charlie Neel Struck to Ground; Roy Fisher Is Held



Special to the Phoenix



TAHLEQUAH, Oct. 1---Charlie Neel, 53-year-old farmer who lived near Gideon,

12 miles north of here, was struck down and killed instantly as he stood on

a street corner here today talking to friends.



Witnesses told Sam Knight, city policeman, who investigated the case, that

Roy Fisher, 32 also a farmer near Gideon, walked up to the elder man and

struck him. The second blow knocked Neel to the pavement. His head struck

the curbing.



Dr. Robert McIntosh said that he died probably instantly, of a broken neck

vertebra.



Fisher was arrested by Knight abd taken to the city jail. He did not know

that Neel had died until he was told at the jail.



County Attorney June Bliss said that no charges would be filed against

Fisher before Monday.



An old grudge over ownership of a piece of land was advanced by authorities

as a possible motive. Bliss said, however, that motive appeared to be vague

and uncertain.



Both men had come to Tahlequah with the Saturday crowds. Fisher was alone,

but part of Neel's family had come with him, to visit relatives here. None

of the family was with him at the time of the tragedy, however.



Neel is survived by his widow and three children, two daughters, Ola and

Lola, of the home, and a son, Otis, of Sedan, Texas. The body was taken to

Reed-Culver funeral home pending arrangements.

At Christmas time my mother would send a basket of fruit to my grandparents

who live in Oklahoma. She knew that they would enjoy the fruit from sunny

California where we lived. One year an avacodo was also in the basket. My

grandmother did not know what they were or how expensive they were. She

wrote back that she really did enjoy all the fruit but did not know what to

do with the green gourd so she threw it to the hogs.

in Holbert in 1918 and operated the Cherokee Barbor Shop on North Muskogee

Ave in Tahlequah for 1919 until his retirement in 1974. Until the day of his

retirement Houston walked to and from his home on Janet Street to his barber

[There is a picture included of Mack Houston in the article]



From an article that appeared in a Tahlequah newspaper



Caption under a picture that went with the article.



Veteran hair-cutter- Mack Houston, who has been a barber in Tahlequah for 50

year, still sharpens a straight razor on a strap while he visits with

customers.



In mirror can be seen the name of his business on the front wendow -

Cherokee Barber shop. [article was done about 1971]



COMMON SENSE HAIRCUTS



TAHLEQUAH - More than 52 years ago Mack Houston learned to cut hair "on a

block behind the smokehouse" and later moved to town and took up the trade

to put his children through school.



" I gave them an education with comb and sissors," remembers the man who

went to work in a barber shop 52 years ago and later started his own

business --- where he still cuts hair almost 50 years later.



Houston, 83, is still giving what he calls "common sense" haircuts in his

Cherokee Barber Shop here and doesn't have any plans about retirement.

Reared at Blue Springs, now the community of Gideon, Houston, part Cherokee

Indian, quit farming and went to work in a Hulbert shop in 1918 and soon

after opened his shop in Tahlequah.



"At that time it was hard to get children in to school," he reflects. "When

my boy reached school age I would have had to carry him to school on a

horse. So I moved to town."



And Houston gave his two children the education he planned on, His dauthter

graduated at Northeastern State College here and is now a teacher and his

son, Leonard, also attended college and is in the sales business here.



"When I first went to work I cut hair for 20 cents," he says "Then it

graduated up to 25 cents. I've made more money cutting hair for 25 cents

than I make now at $1.75 --- there were more customers."



An Oklahoma City resident, a former customer at Houston's shop, one brought

in his small son for his first haircut --- and to sit on the same board he

had sat on for his first trim.



Houston also has the same razor strap he started out with -- "but it's about

worn out."



And he's heard plenty of jokes and philosophy, he says --- "from politics on

up. Barber shop news, I call it."



[Uncle Mack was one of the sweetest men who ever walked this earth. He loved

the Lord and someday I will be with him in glory]

Jerry Watson & Roy King Held Without Bond



SUSPECTS SEIZED IN CITY MURDER



A massive man hunt ended in Seagraves a few hours after Scott Williams was

found shot to death at Higginbotham-Bartlett Lumber Company when he suprised

burglars at the store.



Arrested and being held without bond in Jerry Watson, 29, and 21 year old

Roy King, both of Seagraves. Watson was taken into custody at about 11:00

a.m. Friday, and King was arrested about an hour and a helf later by Sheriff

Ed Welch and other lawman.



Williams and Clayton Harper went to the local business at about 7;45 p.m.

Thursday night and discovering that a robbery was in progress, Williams

dispatched Harper for help and entered the building apparently toapprehend

the burglars. Williams was found face down with three shots in his body. Dr.

Bill McCollough told the News editor that Williams also had been beaten in

the back of the head. The shots came from a 22 cal. revolver and entered

Williams right chest.



The murder weapon was found Friday at about 2:00 p.m. west of the lumber

yard in grass. Bloody gloves were found across the street near the stop sign

on the corner by Hearne's Warehouse. King took officers to the area where

the gun and gloves were found.



A new light developed in the case late Friday when Watson complained of a

wound and a sore chest and back. Dr. McCollough went to Seminole and

examined Watson in the jail and found that he had a bullet wound in his

body. Watson was taken to the Seagraves Hospital in custody and Dr.

McCollough removed a 22 cal. bullet which had hit his ribs and entered the

fleshy part of his back. The bullet evidently struck Watson when he was

allegedly breaking a glass in the back door with the pistol and it

discharged. Watson was returned to the county jail anfter the bullet was

removed.



An important lead had developed in the early hours and Sheriff Welch checked

a local ammunition dealer and found that Watson bought a box of 22 long

rifle shells Thursday afternoon.



The arrests were made and the alleged statements of the weo men were given,

saying that Watson did the hooting and struck Williams. King stated that he

fled the scene when Williams sent harper for help and was not on the premise

at the time of the murder.



Bloody clothing was found hidden in the trailerhouse where King resided.

King showed officers where the clothes were hidden.



According to King's statement he fled and went to the mobile home which is

about four block from the scene of the crime. Watson also is alleged to have

fled and arrived at he trailer after discarding the weapon and the gloves.



Sheriff Welch headed an investigation which included help from his deputies,

local police, Texas T=Rangers, and county officers from Yoakum, Terry and

Dawson counties.



Lubbock police arrived after midnight with dogs to attempt to track the

alleged fugitives.



A few tool were stacked near a back exit with the change bag from the store.

Some one dollar bills were found on the floor a few feet from where Williams

was found face down in a pool of blood. The money was on the floor only

several feet from a blood splattered floor by the counter where Williams was

evidently shot the first time. William's car keys were in his left hand when

he was found by police only minutes after the shooting . Williams had eaten

supper with his wife at their home before returning to the office. Ut was

reported that he had talked to his daughter who lives in Oklahoma City when

she called him on the phone just before he went to the lumber yard. The time

of death was set at about 7:50 p.m. Harper alerted police that the robbery

was in grogress and returned to the store as the police arrived.

7OTH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY



Jewell and Elton Van Osdol of Riverside celerated their 60th anniversary

with family and friends at a dinner party at the home of their daughter

Junelle Budzinski of Lake Forest.



Mr. and Mrs. Van Osdol were marrid in La Crosse, Kan., on July 12, 1930. Mr.

Van Osdol retired in 1975 after 25 years as a stationary engineer with the

Union Pacific Railroad. [Stationary Engineer was his last position on the

railroad and he did not hold that position for 25 years.] Mrs. Van Osdol is

a home maker. Both hare members of Riverside Free Methodist Church.



Their other children are Willora Glee Krapf of Pennsylvania and the late

Doon McCarthy. [Donna was not their daughter but their grand daughter and

she spent a great deal of her life living with her grandparents.] They have

five grandchildren. [They really just have three grandchildren. Two of those

children are Donna's children. Donna was adoped by Willora Glee and June was

an adoped child of Jewell and Elton. Both children were Korean Orphans.]



He was good at machenics like his father. We always had a used car and he

kept it running until it could not be fixed any more. When it got tired

looking he bought another used car [always a Chevrolet] and drove it to

chuch and to the store and kept the older car to drive to work. It was not

until he retired that my parents finally bought a brand new car. One year

before he started working on the railroad we drove to Kansas and OK in

December over the Christmas holidays. It was my first and only Christmas on

the farm. My Mother's parents did not have electrictey and my father chopped

a tree in the woods and it was trimed with paper chains and popcorn and very

little else. She had no Christmas decorations in any way. They never

bothered with a tree at Christmas time. I remember getting a Betsy Wetsy

Doll that Chrismas of 1948. My father was always jerryrigging things. He

really tried to invent things but some how they did not come out the way he

intended them to. Once it was very hot and we were complaining of the heat.

He took a old metal barrell and cut the bottom out of it and mounted a fan

inside of it and put a hose to it and put it on a platform so it would fit

up to the bathroom window. The bathroom window was directly over the toilet.

When he turned the fan on it sprayed a water mist through the window. This

was his version of a water cooler. We lived in the semiarid out skirts of

LA. It did a pretty good of cooling BUT when you tried to go to the toilet

you got a shower. No one wanted a shower while they were on the toilet so he

had to take it down. The cool air was supposed to cool off the bathroom hall

and the living room but the cool air did not reach that far. If he turned

the fan up to a highter speed then you really got the water. It could not be

controlled form inside of the house. One year he decided to make my mother a

Christmas gift. There was nothing wrong with his idea but he just could not

quite carry it off. He wrapped them all in one large box and she was going

nuts trying to guess what was in the box. He enjoyed her fussing about what

it could possibley be. When she opened it it was several picture frames that

he had made. He got some bamboo from someplace and cut them for the sides.

He got plexiglass and cut them to different sizes, like 8X10 and 5X7. There

was a plexiglass on both sides of the picture so it was doublesided and then

there was the bottom with was another two pieces of plexiglass. It was

shaped like this side view. _ll_ The bamboo held the sides of the upright

covers over the pictures. The bottoms slanted slightly up towards the

picture. You could slide the picture between the two verticle pieces of

plexiglass. This sounds good but there was not a straight cut piece of

plexiglass in any of the picture frames and so this made them look tacky. I

think that every piece of plexiglass was crooked in some way. She did not

want to use them because of the sloppy job he did cutting the plexiglass but

she finally used them. I do not remember how long she used them but they

finally dissapeared. One year he bought from someone several potholders that

were in the shape of ladies under pants. These were crocheted. She was mad

all Christmas day. She did not like gifts for the kitchen. He finally

learned that he was better off to buy her a plant of somekind. That always

made her happy for she loved to garden both with flowers and vegetables. In

LA you can grow almost anything and she had outside and inside plants

everywhere. When they moved to Rose Garden Village. They had a small 1

bedroom apt and a small front yard with grass. She got my father to did up

the grass and they planted a beautiful flower garden. Some of it was in pots

and some directely in the ground. They made the local paper with a picture

of the garden and them standing in the middle of what they had created.

Under the picture it read: In a year's time at Rose Garden Village in

Riverside, Elton and Jewell Van Osdol have filled their apartment's front

yard with roses, sweet allysum, pansies, petunias, hollyhock and much more.

Title of article A HAPPY RETIREMENT THATS GONE TO SEED. BY Weezy Wold Home

and Garden Writer. Retirement may mean anything from round-the- clock soap

opera viewing to round-the-world cruises. For a couple at Rose Garden

Village, a retirement community on Adams Street in Riverside, it means a

time to do things together --- such as developing a barren front yard into a

thing of beauty to be enjoyed by themselves and their neighbors. Jewell and

Elton Van Osdol moved just a year ago to one of the older apartments at Rose

Garden Village, which meant taller shade trees and older existing shrubs. It

also meant, in their case, a very bare front yard except for a few

shrubs --- some low cypress --- and some weeds that were suffering from lack

of attention. The couple went into action. Thank goodness tenants are

welcome to cultivate the land a Rose Garden. Soil amendments, worked into

the hard ground, helped to make it more fertile and allow irrigation water

and oxygen to reach plant roots. An existing sprinkler system was capped off

because the couple preferred to do their own watering. Because the ground

sloped away from the apartment, the couple knew they could expect runoff

water and top soil on the front sidewalk. This was avoided by installing two

concrete block walls , one across the middle of yard and another flanking

the sidewalk. It also allowed them to raise the soil level. By placing the

blocks with the open sides up, the opening became flower pots for sedums and

small, flowering border plants. "We put in sack and sacks of steermanure and

potting soil," Jewell said "I did the planting but [Elton] did the spading.

We both placed the concreteblock edgings." Two trees in the front yard had

been cut down, leaving long stumps almost 5 feet tall. A pole nailed to the

trees became a crossbar and a perfect support for hanging plants --- baskets

of colorful geraniums in bloom. "I never had a garden before . We came from

Oklahoma and we had large yards with lots of lawn and shrubs and just a few

flowers as borders. I always lomged in my heart o have a little spot where I

could plant bright-colored flowers." Jewell said, her excitement reflected

in her words. Before they moved to Riverside, the Van Osdols lived in Green

River Village and before that in Santa Fe Springs. Elton retired 10 ago from

Union Pacific Railroad.



"I'm not ready for the rocking chair and dont's count pills, but I work in

the garden several hours a day, " Jewell said. She does most of the

gardening but her husband helps with the watering, now that the heavy work

is done. He doesn't know one plant from the other. I could plant weeds and

wouldn't know the difference. But he really enjoys the garden." They sit at

the patio and both enjoy the color and the visitors. "People come by, even

some in wheelchairs who take the long way around to come by and see our

garden," Jewell said. There is no lawn and no shortage of color in the yard.

Among the perennial plants are eight rosebushes, some in bloom. Jewell's

favorite is Bonanza. Annual and perennial flowers are scattered. White and

purple sweet allysum, pansies, Johnny-Jumps-ups, mums and many striking

single and double petunias in the ground and in pots add to the screne.

Background plants include ready-to-bloom hollyhocks. "I made some mistakes

and learned a lot planting the flowers and bulbs. The iris and gladiolus and

hollyhocks are too close together. But I learn by doing. The happiest part

of our day is the watering and sitting on the patio seeing the color."

Buckets at the edge of the patio hold water and fertilizer at the ready.

Several large half-barrels are within the garden. One holds a tomato plant,

the other a squash, Elton said. "That's not a squash," Jewell contradicted

"it's a cucumber. I could feed him alfalfa and he wouldn't complain, she

said.

AFTER 102 YEARS, CHEROKEE MAN FINALLY GETS MARKER



By Bob Gibbins, Press Staff Writer



It took more than 100 year, but a grave marker will be placed at the burial

site of a Cherokee Indian who fought in the Civil War after coming to indian

Territory on the Trail of Tears.



Leonard Houston, a great grandson of Klas Tama Houston, said the marker for

Klas Yama's grave beca,e a reality after he answered some questions for a

local Veterans Affairs offical.



Houston said his great-grandfather was born in 1833 in Cherokee Nation,

Georgia and moved west with his family five years later on the Trail of

Tears.



Klas Tama later fought in the Civil War. He died in 1889 and was buried in a

private cemetery north of Tahlequah.



Houston saie his father, Klas Tama's grandson, is also buried in what some

refer to as the Houston Cemetery.



He said his great-grandfather's grave has gone unmarked for all those years.



Houston said one of his neighbors suggested talking to the VA about the

possibility of getting a marker.



He went downtown to the office, and answered some questons and the marker

wassent to his home. "it's kind of an oddity to have a marker," Houston said

"He's been dead 102 years." He also said he has a copy of klas Tama's Civil

War discharge, which shows he served for four years.



Houston said he is now considering taking some of the items to an Indian

Museum.



He said he hasencased the marker in concrete and put four sacks of cement in

the form. He has also reinforced the marker with wire.



Houston hopes to take the marker to the grave soon.



There is a picture of Leonard Houston standing by the marker and the caption

says; After 102 years, Leonard Houston's great-grandfather's grave will get

a proper marker. Klas-Tama Houston, who died in 1889, served in the Union

Army during the Civil War. Leonard Houston worked with the Veterans's

Administration to obtain the marker, to be placed on the grave in the old

Blue Springs Cemetery, north of Tahlequah on State Highway 82.

Notes for HAROLD DEAN NEEL:



Harold Neel Dies At Home in Locust Grove



Harold Neel, 35, Locust Grove, died at his home Thursday night after a long

illness.



Born April 25, 1928, at Peggs, Neel lived most of his life at Locust Grove.

he was an armed forces veteran and a deacon in the Little Rock Bapist church

at Locust Grove.



Survivors are his wife, Deloris of the home; a son, Michael of the home; his

father, Walter Neel, Peggs, and a sister, Mrs Pauline Johnson. Tahlequal.



[he died of cancer]



This was sent to me by Bonnie Neel Beasley. Do not know what paper it was in

but probably Locust Grove paper.



Poem by Dona Johnson Lusk



[Hearld Dean Neel's neice, the daughter of his sister Pauline]



I often think of Harold Dean



And all the things he never got to do-



He never got to play blue grass on his guitar.



He never got to write the songs he loved to sing.



He never got to travel around just sharing



his love with folks like you and me.



He never got to go to the international Rodeo-



So many things he never got to do.



But then I think of all the tings he got to do



He smiled a smile that warmed thru and thru



He could laugh and joke or he could let a tear



trocl;e dpwm out of an eye of blue.



He never let on if he knew when people got



upset with him



Because he was so busy just living the



only way he knew.



And now I can even think of all the things



he can do that no one else can do-



Because you see-- God reached down



his hand and said,



"Harold Dean, I have need of you."



And God gave us all time to say



"Goodbye Harold Dean -- we love you!"



Now he's up there walking in tall grass



in skies so blue.



There's no pain or fear -- Just time to do



all those things that down here he



never got to do.



I know if he could lean down to earth now



he'd say something likethis--



"You all just goright on living like I was right



there with you--



Don't miss a single thing on God's great earth



because the time is drawing near



When God's voice you'll hear



Saying "Child, my child - I have someone



up here I know you'll want to see



and he's longing for a loved one dear.



So my child prepare for I soon will have need



of you."

[This was when I was baptized and was dunked under the water in a borrowed

baptisery at a church in Los Angeles, California. I was not the only one

baptised at that time.]



I loved to sing and took a few singing lessons in the 1950s from Florence

Ahn Takeuchi. She lived across the street from us when we lived at 5317

Cimmron, L.A., California. She sang professionally in night clubs and in

light opera and musicals. She spent a year in Florida singing one of the

main roles in "Flower Drum Song". We kept her daughter Jenniver for the time

that she was gone. I sang solos in Church and later was in many church

choirs. The church that I grew up in did not have a choir. After I married

Calvin I sang in the choir on base at Ft Grealy, Alaska. While I was there

we entered a contest among the different chapel choirs on military bases in

Alaska. We made a tape of a song that we sang and we won first place in the

contest. I also sang at the 2nd Hollywood Presbyterian Church where I was

attending when I met Calvin. I sang in girl choruses in High school and Jr.

High. I sang in the choir at Tamaqua, Pa., 1st Methodist Church for several

years. I sang a solo at my parents 25th wedding anniversary in 1955.

Florence Takeuchi held the party at her house. her husband, Joe Takeuchi was

a chef and made the meal that was searved. I sang two songs. "My Mothers

Wedding Day" from Brigadoon and "Because" a love song made famous by Tony

Bennett. I still have the music from that time. I sang in the Schuylkill

County Chorus for one year. I have programs from the Christmas or Winter

program that we preformed at Trinity Episcopal Church in Pottsville, PA. on

Dec. 8, 1984 and the Spring Concert at the same location on May 5th 1985. We

sang some very difficult music. I cannot read music and sing saprano.

Usually I sing the melody because of not being able to read music. The

chorus was led by Catherine S. Zimmerman who taught music at Tamaqua Junior

High School.



For 2 1/2 years, from the fall of 1961 till the early spring of 1964, I sang

in the Braille Institute Choir. We sang in many interesting places from

nursing homes to the L.A. County Jail. We also went to hospitals to do

caroling around Christmas time. I also did some solo work with the choir. It

was a wonderful time in my life and I met and became friends with many

wonderful people. Our directer was the directer of the Breau of Music for

Los Angeles, Mr. Howard Bergan. We traveled all over the L.A. area doing

concerts to publish what Braille Institute is doing for the Blind. I

appeared in two different plays with other Blind Actors. One was a Christmas

play and played a child in it. The other was a mella drama and I played a

southern young lady. I have forgotton the names of both of the plays but

have pictures of myself in them. I learned to knit and weave at the

Institute and modeled some of my weaving in a fashion show that they had. I

made material for a suit and wore it in the show and a apron. I also learned

to braid rugs and have made several at the institute and on my own at home.

Made wool and cotton braided round and oval rugs. I own three looms and have

made many, may different things. Here is a list of some the things that I

have wove over the years. Rag Rugs, stoles, placemats, all sorts of table

runners and scarfs, curtin material, shag throw rugs, wall hangings, purses,

mug rugs, afgans, towells and ect. I have won two blue ribbons at fairs for

my work. I wove an afgan and won at a fair in Santa Fe Springs in May of

1972. Calvin was in Viet Nam and I and my children were staying with my

parents at the time. I also won at the Teller Co. fair in Colorado in Aug.

1981. This time I won for a stole that I had made. What thrilled me is that

I was competing against sighted people and I beat them, that sure made me

feel good. I have tried to sell my weaving but people do not understand the

work that goes into makeing hand woven goods. They think that the prices are

two high. Hand weaving is an very old art and is not appreacited in this

throw away world.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------



Places where we lived that I remember. These were all in Los Angeles,

California



1. Paramlie Ave. This was a one bedroom duplex. It had a yard and is the

first place that I remember. I was about four years old when we lived there.

It was arented house.



2. Duplex that they bought. We lived on one side and my father's sister

Dorothy and her three children lived on the other side. This place is very

fuzzy in my mind.



3. House that my parents bought on 119th Street. It was a 2 bedroom house on

a large lot. Had a garage and a long driveway that I liked to roller scate

on. It had a picket fence around the edge of the property. I got a cat while

living there who name was Boots. It was black with white paws.



4. Daddy lost his job and he was out of work for six months. We moved to a

small trailer that sat by the chuch. We slept in the trailer and ate in the

church's kitchen. The Church was located on the corner of 30th and Hill St.

It was the 2nd Free Methodist Church. It was very close to downtown LA.

Across from the church was John Adams Jr. High. He got a job with Union

Pacific Railroad with the help of Art House. Mr. House went to our chuch and

worker for the railroad. We then moved to an apartment in a 4 unit building

on Olive Street.



2820 So. Olive St. This place was a one bedroom apt. It had a small front

and back yard. We lived on the left side of the building on the ground

floor. There was a living room, dining room, kitchen and a bedroom. In the

dining room and the living were pullout beds that were built in under a

china closet in the dining room and under a built in desk and display

cabnits in the living room. I slep in the dining room. There was also a back

porch where my mother whashed the clothes on a wringer washer. We had a bath

room and next to it was a large closet and a dressing room with a built in

dressing table. There was a small cubby hole that was under the stairs that

went up to the the apt above and I kept all my stuff that I played with in

that small closet. I was always rearrangeing it because it was hard to find

things in it and was always a mess. I remember once there was a small earth

quake and I was in the bed that rolled under the china cabnit. That old bed

rolled back and forth like crazy and I wondered if It was going to roll

unter the china cabnit with me in it. The plates in the cabnit sure did

rattle and dance and I think that a few got broken too. We lived there while

I was in the 5th, 6th and 7th grade. Still have many memories associated

with that house. My mothers brother Robert would come to stay with us. He

arrived unannounced and would stay until he found other living arrangements.

He did this more than one time. He liked older women who had some money and

would keep him. He was kind of wild and loved to drink and chase the women.

It was while living with us that he first saw a lady named Flora Morphew.

She lived down the street from us in a apartment building with her husband

Dale and small daughter Joyce. My mother had met her while doing house

calling in the neighborhood fro the church. They became fast friends and

Flora spent a lot of time at our house. Robert had seen her on the bus and

he came home and said that he had seen this beautiful lady on the bus and

sure would like to be able to meet her. He just got the words out of his

mouth and in walked Flora who was the the person that he had seen on the

bus. He tried to romance her but she was married and did not want to get

involved even though she was attracted to him. Years later Robert call our

house and wanted her address and phone number. Flora was now divorced and

Robert was free too. I refused to give him the information. Flora had enough

problems without Robert messing up her life. My mother who was out of the

house when her brother called suddenly came home and then she got on the

phone whit Robert and she finally gave in and gave him her address and phone

number. That was a big mistake. They got together and later were married. It

was not a happy marriage. Flora was warned about what she was getting into

but she did not listen. They finally divorced. But remained friends until

his death. She went to see him and after she left Robert had a stroke and

died shortly after wards in the hospital. He was only



59 years old. He was living with another women when he died and she was very

jealous of Flora and when she left her and Robert had a big fight and that

is was probably brought on the stroke. When we lived on Olive my mother was

Penny a Day chairman at church. People who had a birthday would give a penny

for every year that they had lived. This would happen during Sunday School.

My mother kept the money in a jar in the built in cabnit in the living room.

One day that money disappeared. She suspected that Robert had taken it and

she later found out that she was right and he never repaid it. It was money

that went to missionaries for their support. There was not much money in the

jar but to steal from the church and the Lord is pretty low. Robert did not

care. My mother had to make up the money. There was not much money in the

jar about 3 or 4 dollars but in the early 50s that went further than it does

today.



In 1952 we moved to 1317 Cimmaron. The Church on 30th and Hill sold their

building to a business that tore down the church and built a new building on

that property. They then bought a church on the corner of 54th and Cimmaron.

We rented an apartment accross the street on the second floor above a

business. We lived there till after I graducated from High School. My father

was the church janitor. We never lived very far from the church. He also was

the maintaince man at the church. The place on olive was about 2 short

blocks from the church. This apt had two bedrooms. There was no hall in the

apt so all the rooms ran in a row one next to the other. It used to be

doctor offices. Daddy became the apt manager and rented out the other

appartments. There were four apts, ours was the fifth and the largest. The

other four were only one room with a large closet, bath and a small kitchen.

When my parents adopted June I moved into one of them that was next to ours

and it became my bedroom. I got blind aid when I was 16 and so could afford

my own little place. This freed up my room for June. I still ate at my

parents place. The little apartment rent was $40.00 a month. I had to live

on my own to qualifiy for the blind aid. I was not happy moving out of the

main living space and felt pushed out so June could have my room. I liked

having my own space and bath to myself but still did not like it.

Notes for SFC *CALVIN ANDREW KRAPF, JR.:



On Sunday December 7, 1997 Calvin fell 2 stories off a narrow cat walk on

the outside of his house, in Tamaqua, while repairing burnt out Christmas

light bulbs. This catwalk was buuild by Calvin a few years earlier when he

extended the walls of the kitchen out to the edge of the porch. He placed

plywood down and did not put up a railing. In time the plywood rotted and

gave way from under one of the legs of the step stood that he was standing

on while he was changing the burnt out light bulbs. Allen, his son, saw him

fall and called for Glee and ran out to check on Calvin. Glee called 911.

Mean while Calvin's heart had



stopped beating and he had stopped breathing. When the ambulance arrived

they worked on him for about ten minutes and finally got his heart started

and him breathing again. Then they rushed him to Miners Memorial Hospital.

There they could not do anything for him except hook him up to a resporator

and fly him to the Lehigh Valley Hospital in a hellicopter. There they tried

to stablize him so they could run some tests on him. On Monday December 8th

a catscan was preformed. The test showed that Calvin had crushed cinus

bones. An endocardiogram was also performed lator in the day which showed

there was very little brain activity. At 11:00 A.M. , Tuesday December 9,

1998 Stacey called the hospital to find out how Calvin was doing and was

told that a test was done to see how much blood was flowing to his brain.

This test showed that Calvin had no blood flow to his brain and he was brain

dead. He was being kept alive till his family called or showed up at the

hospital. On Saturday December 13, 1998 Calvin's funeral was held

atGriffiths Funeral Home Tamaqua Pa. He was buried at Odd Fellows Cematery

in Frackville. He was creamated and the ashes were buried next to his

parents and grant parents on his mothers side. Also down the same row is

buried his great grand parents also on his mothers father side. He had a

free brass head stone from the United States governmemt for is service in

Viet Nam and his over 20 years of service. It took nearly seven months to

get the headstone because the first on was inncorrect and had to be returned

to be done over. His wife Glee will be creamated and interred beside him.
