To Oregon, from Indiana, and from Kansas

 From Indiana -----

Oliver Cromwell Bartmess who was married to Sarah Clark moved from Tippecanoe Co, Indiana to Hood River, Oregon.

His cousin Sophia Maria Gregory, dau. of Anna Elizabeth Bartmess and William David Gregory, moved from Tippecanoe Co. to Portland, Oregon. Sophia was married to Marcus Vernon Harrison.

Sophia’s sister, Margaret Belle Gregory married James Ellsworth Hanna. I’m not sure if this couple moved to Oregon, but their children were there. One son was Ellsworth B. Hanna, who died at Portland.


From Kansas -----

Frank E. Rizer married Marcie M. Mahon in 1883 in Greenwood Co, Kansas. The afternoon of their wedding they left for Oregon. I believe Marcie had family in the Salem, Oregon area. Frank was the son of George M. Rizer and Ann Elizabeth Welty of Greenwood County.

Albert Augustus Rizer, son of Albert A. Rizer and Lydia J. Springer. He left western Maryland, proceeded through the Dakotas, where he married Mora McCune, and ended up in Portland, Oregon where he died in 1931.
