Petra Danielson (d Aug 1, 1940; in Aug 15, 1940 Port Angeles Evening News )
Friends of Mrs. Petra Danielson, beloved West End Pioneer, who died August first at her home in the Big River Valley country near Lake Ozette, have submitted the following tribute to their late friend and neighbor.
"Friends and neighbors in the Big River Valley country mourn the passing of Mrs. Petra Danielson. 'Grandma' Danielson, as she was known to us, was a pioneer. She came to Clallam County in 1906 and homesteaded about 12 miles out on the Clallam Bay-Lake Ozette trail. At that time, life for the pioneer was not easy. During the 34 years since it has been a lot of hard work to make a home in the tall timber.
"In 1908 Grandma Danielson cooked for William Kemper at Sekiu when he ran a small stopping place for settlers traveling back and forth to the outside world. In those days it took a day's hike over rough trails to get to Sekiu.
"In 1928 Grandma made a trip to Chicago to visit her two son, but she was happy to return to her busy life in the woods--to her fishing trios which she enjoyed to the utmost. She took her last fishing trip only a few weeks before her death. The Hoko river was her delight, and on one occasion she became so absorbed in fishing that darkness overtook her. She got lost, and was forced to spend the night in the woods.
"Although Grandma Danielson was almost 90, she was very active. A week before her death she danced the schottische [thus] with another oldtimer, Mrs. Brit Boe.
The fact that Grandma was deaf did not dampen her spirits one bit. She did not miss out on anything. Her health was good and she loved life. She was content in her modest little cottage where she lived with her son Alfred. Busy with daily chores of housekeeping and her garden, which she cared for tenderly, Grandma also found time to crochet, knit, and piece quilts all by hand from intricate patterns which she copied. Her work was beautiful
"This she did until the last few days when she was stricken with pneumonia, passing away on August first. Hers was a rich full life. Three sons, 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren survive.
"Grandma Danielson did not have much of this worlds goods. She had something more valuable--a happy lovable personality that will live on in the hearts of those who knew her."

Herbert Dempsey, who was killed yesterday morning at the Webb Logging camp at Duckabush, met his death from a rolling log that struck him and pinned him down. Mr. Dempsey, who was superintendent of the camp, was taking men into the woods to show them where to equip a spar tree. He walked along a log on a side hill and the jar of his footsteps loosened another log above the one he was on and it came rolling down and before he could get out of the way, struck him. He had one companion with him at the time of the accident.
The late Herbert Dempsey, himself born at Port Crescent, in this county, September 27, 1897, is the son of Herbert Dempsey of Joyce who is a pioneer logging man of the county. The young man has followed the logging business almost all of his life and was superintendent of the Snow Creek Logging camp before he went to Duckabush.
Mr. Dempsey leaves a wife, Mrs. Mildred Dempsey to whom he was married in Port Angeles in the fall of 1924. His father, Herbert Dempsey, lives at Joyce as do his brothers Francis and James and his sister Katherine Marie Dempsey. Another brother, Lawrence, lives at Duckabush and is employed in the Webb Logging Camp.
Mr. Dempsey was a member of the Elks and Eagles lodges of this city.
He spent practically all his life in Clallam County and attended the Ramapo
school. General regret has been expressed that this young man, with
a life full of promise before him, should meet with such an untimely fate.

The late Mr. Dickinson had a wealth of experience to relate in regard
to the early days of this district and his mind was clear up until the

John Donahue ( 13 July 1931 )
John Donahue, 76, a citizen of Port Angeles for 39 years, and one of the city's most sturdy pioneer residents, died at his home on Peabody Heights last night after an illness of 14 months. Born in Elmira, NY June 22, 1855, the late Mr. Donahue moved to Dallas, TX when about 22 hears of age. A few years later he moved to Austin, in the same state, where he was married Nov 23, 1886 to Miss Anna O'Donnell. The marriage was solemnized in St. Mary's Catholic Church, Austin TX by the Rev. Father Peter Lough. Eleven children were born to this union and nine of them and the widow survive. All are residents of this city and were at their father's bedside during his last hours.
It was September 1892 that Mr. and Mrs. Donahue with 3 young children left Austin, TX for the state of Washington. They had heard of the fine timberland in the Gettysburg district west of Port Angeles. They settled there with the idea of taking up a homestead but life in the big woods was not suited to the mother and young children so the family moved to Port Angeles Nov 6, 1892. The townsite reserve was just being opened to settlement and they homesteaded on government lots near where the Jefferson school is now. In 1896 the family purchased acreage in the Maguire addition on Peabody Heights or what was then known as "Rose Hill," a beautiful site immediately south of the city on a rise of ground that gives a wonderful panorama view of the city and strait. It was on the land that Mr. Donahue built the beautiful family home and cultivated a wonderful small farm.
It was from the porch of this home that Mr. Donahue watched the development of the city that he loved so well. From his high viewpoint he could see each new building that was erected to transform the straggling village that he first knew in to a fine industrial city.
The late Mr. Donahue in the early days drove horses to make his wood deliveries. As he drove his team along the roads and streets, he always had a cheery greeting for old time friends. When he changed from horses to an automobile truck he regretted the speed because he did not have an opportunity to greet the old timers.
The late Mr. Donahue was a lifelong Catholic who affiliated with the local church when Port Angeles was but a small town and who took a leading part in the church's affairs throughout all the years of his life. Next to his religion and his family, Mr. Donahue considered his affiliation with the Democratic party of first importance. Soon after he had reached his majority, he went to the polls with his father and voted for Tilden and Haves and has voted for every democratic candidate for President since, with one exception. The exception was when he moved to Texas to Washington and had not established his years residence in the state when the election came along. The loss of that vote was always a source of regret to him. He had a fine grasp on national politics and as long as he was able to read, followed the political news with a keen interest. Political conventions, rallies and political arguments were his delight and he was positive in his views but tolerant with those who disagreed with him.
Outstanding qualities of the late John Donahue recognized by all old time friends were his honesty, industry and love of family. He raised a family of 11 children, provided them with a fine home and educations, and was never so happy as when they were gathered around him in the old home place. He worked hard up until his last illness and died surrounded by the evidence of that hard work that was reflected in the beautiful home place. Not only did Mr. Donahue take an interest in his home but he was in favor of every progressive movement in the county and always looked forward to the growth of the city and county by favorite improvements when they were put to a vote.
Mr. Donahue felt a strong bond of friendship for his old time friends and during his 14 month illness insisted on being taken to funeral services of pioneers who preceded him to the grave. although desperately ill himself, he wanted to pay homage to those who with him, had taken prominent parts in the upbuilding of the city and county. One by one the members of that sturdy band of far seeing men and women, who saw Port Angeles as the fulfillment of their dreams of an ideal home passed when John Donahue went to his rest in his beautiful home surrounded by a family that appreciated his sterling qualities and who always will adore his memory.
Surviving relatives are the widow, Mrs. Anna Donahue; 5 daughters, Mrs. G. M. Sturdevent, Mrs. Ira ____, and the Misses Agnes, Margaret and Angela Donahue; 4 sons, Tom, Frank, Allie and Paul Donahue; and 8 grandchildren, all of Port Angeles.
The remains are resting at the Christman Mortuary. Funeral services will be held Thursday morning at 9am at the Catholic Church with Father Bernard Neary, O. SB in charge. Burial will be in Ocean View Cemetery. The late Mr. Donahue was a member of the Knights of Columbus and Eagles lodges.

The funeral service of the late Henry Dorst, Sr. was held Tuesday afternoon at the Congregational Church, the Rev. Evan David officiating. Funeral arrangements were carried out under the direction of Robert Taylor of Auburn, with interment in the local cemetery.
OBITUARY: Henry Dorst was born in Woorstadt, Germany on Nov 4, 1862 and came to this country in the year of 1880 at the age of 18. He first settled in Michigan but soon after came to Washington and made his home in Clallam County where most of his life was spent. He became an American citizen in 1896.
In the year of 1903 [correction: 17 Aug 1913], he married Mrs. Richard Wahlgren [Wilhelmina Oberg] who preceded him in death in 1937. For the last 18 months he made his home with his daughter Minnie in Seattle and passed away last Friday at the Swedish Hospital, Seattle, after a prolonged illness at the age of 79 years and 4 days.

Wilhelmina Oberg Wahlgren Dorst ( 7-9-37 )
A gallant life came to an end Tuesday morning, when Mrs. Henry Dorst, Sr. passed away at her home at Bear Creek, after a long illness. Wilhelmina Oberg was born in Finland Dec 8, 1871. With her brother, Joel Oberg, she came to Port Crescent in 1888 after their father, Carl Oberg, who had taken up a preemption claim there sent for them.
In the new land she made the acquaintance of Richard Wahlgren and on August 9, a month after her arrival, the young couple, accompanied by her father, chartered an Indian canoe--there being no justice of the peace at Port Crescent--and made the hazardous trio to Victoria where they were married. The ceremony was performed in the morning and in the afternoon they started on the return trip. A wind sprang up, and the waves tossed high, and the little wedding party was in very real peril. But the Indian canoeists were skillful men and finally succeeded in landing the little party safely on the beach at Salt Creek.
The young bride's sojourn at Port Crescent was brief. Her husband sold his preemption at Port Crescent and went farther into the wilderness to homestead at Bear Creek. Here, within a few months after their marriage, the young bride came. She traveled by boat to Pysht, with her husband, and was taken to shore in an Indian dugout. From there she went on horseback to Beaver, and from Beaver made her way up an elk trail to her new home in the wilderness.
The new manner of life called upon all the fortitude in her character. Six of her seven children were bon on the homestead, without a doctor or nurse in attendance. Her firstborn, Oscar, was the first white child to be born in the Bear Creek district.
Living condition, which were rugged at best, became precarious when in 1903, the young woman was widowed, with 5 young children to provide for. To add to her difficulties and provide a further handicap, blindness set in.
If despair was in her heart, she showed no wavering but carried on with her customary courage, providing food, clothing, and motherly comfort to her youngsters.
In 1903 [correction: 17 Aug 1913] she married Henry Dorst, and 2 children were born to them. Almost her entire adult life was spent at Bear Creek.
Services were held at the Forks Community Congregational Church this afternoon. Interment in Forks Cemetery. Robert J. Taylor, funeral director, is in charge of final arrangements.
Mrs. Dorst is survived by her husband and the following sons and daughters: Mrs. Hilma Kreig of Gig Harbor; Oscar, Albin, Carl and Fred Wahlgren, all of Forks; Henry Dorst, of Forks; Minnie dorst of Seattle; 15 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren
