A N Taylor ( Port Angeles Evening News issue of Nov 29, 1935 )

A N Taylor, 68, of Jamestown, beloved pioneer school teacher of Clallam County, died Thanksgiving night at 9 after an illness of several months. Masonic funeral services will be held at Sequim Sunday afternoon at 1 under the direction of the Sequim Mortuary. Cremation will follow.

The late A N Taylor was the first city superintendent of schools in Port Angeles, teaching and having charge of the school in Old Central when the first term was held there in the fall of 1889.

Born in Francisville, IL on Jan 21, 1867, Mr. Taylor graduated from the normal school of Marvindale, that state, He came to Port Angeles in 1888 and with his brother, Jesse B Taylor, started teaching here the next year.

Dec 21, 1894, Mr. Taylor married Grace Ware in Port Angeles. Mrs. Taylor was the daughter of local pioneers and sister of William J Ware of this city.

Early in the 90's, Mr. Taylor took charge of the Dungeness School and taught there until transferring to Jamestown where he was teacher and superintendent of the Indian school until about a year ago.

Surviving relatives are the widow and 7 children. The children are C W Taylor, Seattle; Mrs. Gladys Hume, Port Angeles; Mrs. Charles Skidmore, Tacoma; Elsie, Wilford and Jesse of Jamestown, and Stanley of Port Angeles. There is one brother, Dr. Jesse B Taylor, living near Tacoma.

Mr. Taylor was a member of the Masonic Blue Lodge and past master of the Sequim Lodge. He was an Odd Fellow and member of the Sequim Rotary club and at one time was superintendent of schools for Clallam County.

With a record of almost a half century as a school teacher in Clallam County, the late A N Taylor has perhaps done more for education than any other man in the county. Many men, now grown to middle age who attended his classes, will feel that they have suffered a personal loss in the death of the pioneer educator.

A N Taylor was the keeper of traditions for Clallam County pioneers. For several years president of the Pioneer's Association, he was happiest when groups of old time friends and former pupils surrounded him, talking of old days.

When "A N" took his first teaching job in Dungeness, he rode back and forth between this city and there each day on a bicycle, over the old Burlingame road. The test was one for a real man and the teacher stood that test.

A keen sense of humor gave Mr. Taylor great delight in reciting humorous incidents of early days and his stories were always the highlights of any pioneer gathering. Traditions and stories have grown up about him so that he was almost a legendary figure, loved and respected by hundreds. His home at Jamestown was a shrine visited annually by scores of old friends and former pupils.

Jesse Edward Thomas ( Port Angeles Evening News issue of March 23, 1928 )

Jesse Edward Thomas, 69, pioneer photographer and lighthouse keeper in Port Angeles, passed away at 9:30am today after an illness of some time.

With the passing of this pioneer, who followed the business of photography while that profession was in its infancy, Port Angeles loses one if its best known old-time characters with whom nearly every person in the city in the earlier part of the present century and last years of the 90's had contact. The albums of every local family that has lived in Port Angeles for 25 years or more contain old pictures produced by him.

J T Thomas was born in Bloomington, WI in 1859. He spent his boyhood life on his father's farm at that place. On September 4, 1882, he was united in marriage to Rosa Hampton.

Shortly after his marriage, Thomas moved to Iowa where he opened a photograph gallery. He remained there for one winter and returned to his Wisconsin home. The following year he journey to Nebraska and pursued his trade there for a winter.

During the early years of his career, Mr. Thomas endured all the trials and struggles that befell a photographer in those days. He manufactured a good many of his materials, prepared the glass plates on which his pictures were made, fumed all his photographic paper and attended to other processes of the trade that are handled in factories now. Tin-types and other forms of pictorial representation that are regarded as crude, in the present day, were his products then.

Following his year of residence in Nebraska, the pioneer picture maker went to Minneapolis with Mrs. Thomas, and from there to Fergus Falls, MN. During that period, a daughter was born to them. She was known as Addie.

In 1886, the family met friends who were on their way to the newly developed Northwest and decided to cast their lots with the travelers. Their first stop was at Cheney where Mr. Thomas opened another photograph shop which he conducted for 4 years. At the expiration of that time, he brought his family to Port Angeles, the place that was to; be their home for an almost unbroken stretch of years until the present. A son, Earl, was born in their first year here.

The building that stood near the present intersection of Front and Lincoln Sts was the first place occupied by the photographer in this city. After a few years there a move was made to a location on Front Street near the site of the present Howe & Eubanks store.

The pioneer left his old profession in 1901 to join Uncle Sam's lighthouse service. This work he followed for 22 years afterward, in the first 3 years at Cape Flattery, and the remainder in the Ediz Hook lighthouse. His family was with him on the Hook during the large part of the time. Mrs. Thomas staying there during the construction of the new buildings that are standing at the end of the sand-arm now to feed the builders and help her husband.

In 1923 Thomas retired from the lighthouse service, and after that year until his death, resided with his wife at the old home on which he homesteaded in 1891.

A devout Christian, Mr. Thomas was a church member through most of his life and always was known as a good neighbor and kind father and husband. His place as a respected pioneer citizen in this city is one that will be hard to fill.

Mrs. Thomas and her children, Mrs. B A Reid, of Seattle, and Earl Thomas of Port Angeles survive their husband and father. There are also 3 sisters and 2 brothers in Bloomington: Mrs. Lucy Knapp, Bloomington, WI; Mrs. Laurie Benson, Minneapolis; Mrs. Linda Warrior, Palo Alto, California; William Thomas, Orange, California; and Frank Thomas, Corvalis, OR.

Funeral arrangements have not been completed as yet. Rev. T U Richmond will officiate with Modern Woodmen of America, of which the deceased was a member, conducting the services. The funeral will be from the parlors of the Dewey Lyden Company, funeral directors.

Rosa M Thomas ( Port Angeles Evening News issue of Sep 5, 1935 )

Mrs. Rosa M Thomas, 75, Port Angeles pioneer and the widow of the late J E Thomas, died at Columbus Hospital on Monday night and will be buried at 3:30pm Friday in Dungeness Cemetery. Funeral services were held in Seattle this morning.

The late Mrs. Thomas came here with her husband in 1891. Mr. Thomas was one of the city's first photographers and most of the pictures of pioneer scenes were taken by him. Mr. Thomas died here March 23, 1928 and his widow left shortly afterwards to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. B A Reed [thus], of Seattle. Mrs. Thomas was born in Wisconsin on January 26, 1860.

For 22 years, the late J E Thomas was the keeper of the Ediz Hook light from 1901 to 1923 and the family lived at the lighthouse on the hook.

Mrs. Thomas was a charter member of the WBA of this city, took a leading part in many social and civic affairs and continued her keen interest in Port Angeles after she moved to Seattle.

Surviving relatives are a son, Earl Thomas, a grandson, Richard Thomas of Port Angeles, a daughter, Mrs. B A Reid [thus], and a grandson, Thomas Reid of Seattle.

Charles Wintworth "Wint" Thompson ( Port Angeles Evening News issue of Mar 14, 1928 )

Charles Wintworth "Wint" Thompson, 83, pioneer sheriff and logger, a resident of Clallam County since 1865, passed away suddenly from a heart attack at 7pm at his home in this city. Mr. Charles Wintworth "Wint" Thompson had just eaten dinner when he was stricken with the ailment that has bothered him for some time and passed away after arising from a couch and walking a few steps across the floor, only to sink down dead.

The life of "Wint" Thompson is the story of a frontiersman and pioneer whose whole life is interwoven with the history of Port Angeles and Clallam County.

C W Thompson was born at Oxford, Nova Scotia, Canada, Aug 12, 1845 and lived on his father's farm there until he was 19 years old when he was married to Cynthia Steward McNutt who survives him. Shortly after the young couple were married, July 14, 1964, they left for the Puget Sound country, traveling by rail from Oxford to St. John, New Brunswick. From that city they took a vessel that traveled down the Atlantic Coast, and landed at Greytown, Nicaragua, and crossed the Isthmus of Panama by stage and river boat to the Pacific where they boarded a vessel at a place called San Juan and went to San Francisco, which was only a small town at that time.

At San Francisco they took a steamer for Victoria, BC, having just missed the steamer Brother Jonathan, that was lost with all on board, including Victor Smith, founder of Port Angeles.

When the young couple arrived in Victoria, they found that there were only Indian canoes available to come to Port Angeles in, which was their destination. Mr. Thompson, having a relative, Gay Morse, living at Morse Creek. Leaving Mrs. Thompson in Victoria, Mr. Thompson made the trip across the strait in a canoe and landed on the beach at Port Angeles Sep 15, 1865, 14 months after having left his home in Oxford, Canada.

The first job Mr. Thompson had in Clallam County was cutting and binding oats by hand on what is known as the old Davidson place at Dungeness, now owned by Frank Lotzgesell. He walked from Port Angeles to Dungeness along the beach, there being no road at that time. He had in the meantime returned to Victoria in a rowboat manned by George Bates, and brought Mrs. Thompson here.

In the spring of 1866, after spending the winter in Port Angeles, Mr. Thompson again went to Dungeness and started working in the logging camps, first working in a camp operated by Charles Le Ballister for the Discovery Bay Mill. He worked in a camp at Jamestown and then at the head of Sequim Bay. His next job was at the Port Crescent camp, and from there he went to what was then known as the Harry Hoffman place, in the Sequim district, where he was employed for 6 years. He had then become known as on of the best ox team drives on the sound, logging being done in those days by ox teams. He was later the driver of the stage between Port Townsend and Discovery Bay. Having determined to have a home in Dungeness, Mr. Thompson bought part of the J C Brown donation claim. The late Charles Morse of this city built the house on the farm that is still standing.

In 1876, in partnership with William Payne, Mr. Thompson started logging in Port Crescent. He continued this partnership for 3 years, after which he bought out his partner and ran the camp alone for 11 years, or until 1890. He lived in Dungeness and generally rode horseback between there and Port Crescent on week-ends. He had 24 oxen and drove the yarding team himself. Among the men who worked for him were: Pete Bonney, Charlie O'Brien, Black Jack Smith, Fred Rainey, Charles Agnew, Bill Wooding, Tom Humes, Warren Dodge, Sam Morse, Al Miller, Charles Morse, Dave Morse, Severn Johnson, Gus Coleman and Dave Humes.

Mr. Thompson not only had his farm at Dungeness, but invested in other farm lands, including one at the mouth of the Elwah River, one east of Port Angeles known as the Lake Farm, as well as several pieces of property in Port Angeles.

To provide a barn for his saddle horse that he used for riding between Port Crescent and Dungeness, Mr. Thompson built the first building on the north side of Front St, this city, where the site of the Merchant's Hotel now is.

In the early days of the county, when Dungeness was still the county seat, Mr. Thompson served one term as sheriff. In those days, all the men carried guns and knew how to use them. He had an iron nerve and had many stories to tell in later years of how a peace officer enforced the laws. The jail was in Dungeness and there was a hole in the roof into which the prisoners were dumped for safekeeping. He also served 2 terms as county commissioner.

The late Mr. Thompson was one of the most picturesque characters of this section of the country. He looked the frontiersman and acted as one. A man of great strength and activity, he was at home in any kind of "rough house." He was intensely patriotic and favored his adopted country above everything else. He was always known as a good neighbor from frontier days down to the last, and he was well liked by everyone who came in contact with him. He was one of the oldest members of the Masonic Lodge here and also belonged to the Elks.

Surviving Mr. Thompson are his wife, Cynthia S Thompson; his sons, Lew R Thompson and Clinton N Thompson [text is confused at this point but reads:] will be held Friday, at ther, Niron, in Nova Scotia, and a sister, Joana Irene, in Hamilton, Ont. He has 5 grandchildren.

Funeral services for the late Mr. Thompson will be held Friday, at 1:30pm from the chapel of the Dewey Lyden Company, funeral directors. Burial will be in the family plot in Dungeness Cemetery. Announcement in detail will be made tomorrow.

Clinton M Thompson ( clipping with notation d 12-19-1961? )

Clinton M Thompson, 79, of 520 E 2nd St, born at Dungeness to a pioneer family and residing in the county all his life, died Tuesday as the result of injuries received Dec 17, when struck by an automobile.

Funeral services will be held at the McDonald Funeral Home at 1pm Friday with the Rev. Richard Cook officiating. Burial will be in Dungeness Cemetery.

He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles W (Wint) Thompson born at Dungeness April 22, 1882. His parents came to Clallam County from Nova Scotia, Canada in 1865. His mother was Cynthia Stewart Thompson and her maiden name was McNutt. The family were related to the Morse, McNutt and Lee families. He was a cousin to Warren Morse who died here Tuesday. Mr. Thompson's wife, Eva L Thompson, died here in 1950.

Mr. Thompson engaged in farming the greater part of his life, operating the family homestead at Dungeness as well as other Dungeness farms in his early years and also farmed the family Lake Farm at Fairview up until the late 30's. He also had Port Angeles property.

He played the violin from the time he was a youth and furnished music for many gatherings in the Dungeness district in early days. In more recent years he furnished violin music at Goldenagers and Clallam County Historical Society meetings. His son John has made a life career of music and currently is violinist with the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Surviving relatives include 2 sons, Charles W Thompson, Port Angeles and John Howell, Minneapolis, MN; and a brother Lew R Thompson, Calistoga, CA and 4 grandchildren.

Cynthia Stewart McNutt Thompson ( Port Angeles Evening News issue of Mar 21, 1928 )

Cynthia Stewart Thompson, 87, wife of the late Charles Wintworth, who died just a week ago, one of the pioneer women of Clallam County, who came here with her husband in 1865, passed away at her home at First and Chase St. Tuesday evening, March 20 at 5:15.

Cynthia S Thompson was born at Port Phillip, Nova Scotia, Canada, March 13, 1841 and lived on the farm home of her parents, Robert P McNutt and Nancy Morse McNutt until she was 23 years of age when she married Charles Wintworth (Wint) Thompson and journeyed with him to the western frontier, arriving at Port Angeles Sep 20, 1865.

Mrs. Thompson was the mother of 5 children, the elder dying when an infant and being buried at what was known as Agnew Junction, at that time there being only a logging camp there in which Mr. Thompson worked. The other children were Charles, Minnie, Lewis and Clinton, of which Lewis and Clinton survive to mourn the loss of a beloved mother.

Cynthia S Thompson, better known as "Grandma" Thompson, was one of the real hard working pioneer mothers of the early days of the county, at times cooking in the logging camps while her husband drove the ox teams in the woods.

After accumulating a small amount of money through hard work, she and her husband purchased a piece of land at Dungeness which was at that time a forest and later known as the Thompson farm. "Grandma" Thompson lived on the little homestead, milking a few cows and doing the other necessary farm work as well as taking care of her children while her husband traversed the beach between Dungeness and Port Angeles, where he operated a logging camp.

In those days a mother had to contend with many hardships as there were no doctors in this wilderness country and most of the children born in the Dungeness Valley those times were brought into the world by an old lady named Mrs. Henderson and it is recorded that this old midwife never lost a patient.

Living was more or less primitive and in many farm homes the furniture consisted of a couple of half barrels for wash tubs, oil cans for wash boilers, a small stove or fireplace for cooking and a broom sometimes made of small brush.

The food consisted in part of coarse ground flour, sugar for tea, coffee and cooking and black molasses with home cured pork and salt beef most of the year.

"Grandma" Thompson made several trips on foot on the beach from Port Angeles to Dungeness with her husband, carrying the children on their backs. A weary traveler never left the door of "Grandma" Thompson's home hungry and often besides feeding the man, she would but a nice piece of boiled ham and a loaf of bread in his knapsack to last him until he could reach his destination, which was perhaps, a logging camp.

Of a sunny disposition, "Grandma" Thompson enjoyed the company of young people and was a lover of music, flowers, and the beautiful things of the world. She believed and trusted in her Bible and was happy and contented in her latter years, and but a few hours before her death said she was happy and ready to pass over the Great Divide.

Besides her sons, Lewis and Clinton, there are 5 grandchildren, Mae, Edgar and Clinton, children of Lewis Thompson, and John and Charles, children of Clinton Thompson.

Funeral services will be held Friday March 23, at 1:30pm form the Dewey Lyden Company, funeral directors and burial will be in the family plot at Dungeness Cemetery.

Lewis (Lew) Thompson ( clipping with date Feb 20, 1974 )

A man whose 98 year lifetime stretched from a small house on the Dungeness beach near Jamestown in the early days of Clallam County to the supersonic jet age died Wednesday night. Lewis (Lew ) Thompson, 98, who was probably the oldest living native of Clallam County, was the second youngest of the 6 children of Mr. and Mrs. Charles W Thompson of Dungeness.

His parents came to Dungeness from Nova Scotia via Panama. Part of their journey was with Victor Smith, the man President Abraham Lincoln sent to Port Angeles to build a military and medical post here in 1862, Mr. Thompson said in an interview last month.

The farm where he grew up was about 3/4 of a mile from the beach at the mouth of the Dungeness River in a swampland forest "so thick the only way to see out was straight up." The house was a combination of logs, split cedar and shakes. Some lumber from the early Port Discovery Mill co. was also used in the home.

Young Lew was 7 when he started walking the trail to the Cassalery School, the first one in Dungeness. His formal schooling ended when he completed the "third reader." His working days began when he became a 12-year-old hay cutter. Later he worked for A U Davis milking 20 cows each morning, clearing land and digging ditches.

When he was about 20 years old his father gave him a piece of land near the mouth of the Elwah River. he moved onto the property with 10 cows and built the herd to 45 to 60 cows on when he called the first modern, machine operated farm in the county. When he sold his farming operation in 1913, he also had 100 head of young stock at Hurricane Hill.

Mr. Thompson moved into real estate development in Port Angeles and later became a business victim of the depression of the late 20's and early 30's. Some of his developments here were the St. Francis Hotel, Merchants Hotel and a dance pavilion on Railroad Avenue. The St. Francis and the pavilion later burned.

Mr. Thompson and his wife Theresa had 3 children. Following the death of his first wife, he married the late Grace Fisher Thompson.

It was in 1934 Mr. Thompson began his long association and support of the Townsend Plan as a paid promoter of the proposal. Under the plan, which bore the name of its founder, everyone would receive a set amount of money each month from the federal government after they reached a certain age. It never became law.

In his later years, he made his home with a daughter in California. About a year ago his daughter moved to Hawaii and he returned to Port Angeles. He said of the move, "I decided to go back to die where I was born."

The body is at Ridgeview Chapel where final arrangements are pending.

Thomas Francis Trumbull ( clipping with date 24 April 1944 )

[ excerpts of long article ]

Thomas Francis Trumbull, 76, dean of the north Olympic Peninsula legal fraternity, passed away at 1am today at a local hospital. He had been seriously ill for several weeks. Funeral services will be held at 2pm Monday from the McDonald Funeral Home with the Rev. John F Como in charge. The body will lie in state at the McDonald Funeral Home until 11am Monday and the casket will not be opened at the service.

Mr. Trumbull came to Port Angeles originally in 1900 in connection with legal matters having to do with the projected Port Angeles Eastern Railroad. It was this railroad which gave Olympic Peninsula residents their first real ray of hope that rail shipping from the agricultural and horticultural regions of the west would find their outlet to the Orient from Port Angeles--and thus build a great city. However, the railroad dream faded after a few miles of roadbed had been constructed.

[2 paragraphs about legal career omitted ]

Mr. Trumbull's name has been linked with Naval Lodge of Elks almost since the beginning of that organization here. He became Member No. 121 on April 5, 1900 shortly after coming here. He was exalted ruler in 1912. He was a 32nd degree Mason, affiliated with the Port Angeles Lodge. He was also an ardent member of Rotary International, being one of the early members of the Port Angeles Rotary Club in which he kept up a regular attendance. He showed a keen interest in the international business fellowship philosophy of that organization and felt that its establishment in world leadership would eventually become one of the forces for peace.

Born in Cresco, IA Feb 29, 1868, Thomas Trumbull was one of a family of 12 children, all but one of whom moved to the state of Washington. They settled in Port Townsend, moving from there to Seattle and Port Angeles.

In 1897 Mr. Trumbull married Miss Lida Brown in Port Townsend and shortly afterward went to Alaska, then in the midst of the gold rush boom and center of attraction for every adventurous northwesterner. He had a law office there for 15 months and kept until recently a small container of gold dust as a souvenir of the gold rush trek.

After returning to Port Townsend he shortly moved to Port Angeles, expecting to be here only temporarily. He never moved from the town, although he shared the law office of his brother, John Trumbull, in Seattle until 1912 when the office was closed after his brother's death. Mr. Trumbull had a case before the Supreme Court of the United States about 20 years ago, the case concerning taxes on the spruce railroad before its purchase by the Sol Duc Investment Company.

Some time after Andrew Severyns had been associated with Attorney Trumbull, he became a member of the firm and later Mr. Trumbull's son John was taken into the office which for some years has been Trumbull, Severyns Trumbull.

Surviving are his wife and son John; 2 grandchildren, Thomas and John; one sister, Mary Trumbull Jameson of Bothel; one brother Robert of Wenatchee.
