3 John Paul Walker was a lifelong bachelor who lived with his brother, Fred, also a bachelor. In 1959 Fred and John were in an automobile accident. Fred was driving. John sustained a broken neck in the crash. The stress resulting from the accident and Fred's distress over his brother's injuries caused Fred to have a fatal heart attack. John recovered completely from his injuries with no lasting effects from the broken neck. He died in 1964 at the age of 82. Walker, John Paul (I197658)

7 Obituary (file of Marlin Beulow)
Sarah Felix Perkins was born in Union County, Pennsylvania in December 1815. In early childhood, she moved to Ohio and then to Indiana. Here she met John Perkins to whom she was married on March 29, 1836.
On March 4, 1844 they started from Benton County, Indiana, by ox team, to Oregon, arriving at Whitman Mission (in Walla Walla, now a part of Washington State) the following November. They lived there until June 1845 and then moved to Willamette Valley and settled on their land claim which was about two miles to the northwest.
Theirs was a happy life for the next 42 years until death claimed the one who had shared her joy and sorrows. John was laid to rest on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Her father, the Reverend Henry Felix, was educated in Germany for the Presbyterian ministry. She was united with the church of her father's faith, remaining a consistent member until March 1864 when she united with the M.E. Church which she has been a devoted member ever since.
She was the mother of nine children, Eugene (Eli), Joseph B., George W., Norris H., Mrs. Elvira Russell, Mrs. Lucretia Walker, and Mrs. Lizzie Bedwell of this place are still living and were present at the funeral. The other two children, Mrs. Sarah M. Richards, died October 14, 1901 and William F. Perkins died May 18, 1890. The past six years, the deceased made her home with her daughter Mrs. Lizzie Bedwell at whose residence she died. She died on July 28, 1904 and was 88 years, 6 months, and 22 days old.
The funeral services were conducted by Reverend W.B. Moore, pastor of the 1st M.E. Church of which the deceased was a member for 40 years. The deceased was a pioneer and having lived in this part of the country for nearly 50 years, made many friends and acquaintances. A large concourse of people attended the funeral service both at the church and the grave.
Marlin Beulow notes: "The information contained in this obituary, referencing her father's first name and education/profession, was refuted by family members in later years. Sarah's death certificate does reflect her father's name as supposedly being "Henry." There are some discrepancies in dates and places between Sarah's and John's obituaries but nothing so noticeable that it cannot be overlooked."

"So, you're Fred Lockley. I was just reading your article in The Journal, said Lucretia Walker when I dropped in to see her at her home in Yamhill recently. It's about time you came to see me. I've been expecting you for the past 15 years. Yes, I am a pioneer and also an Oregon native daughter. I was born September 8, 1848. My father, John Perkins, started for the California gold diggings the day before I was born, so for a good many months he didn't know whether I was a boy or a girl. My father, John Perkins, was born in New York state, August 21, 1811. When he was 21 years old he went to Tippecanoe County, Indiana. My father and mother were married there in 1836. Mother's maiden name was Sarah Felix. She was born in Pennsylvania. My father and mother with their children started across the plains for Oregon in the spring of 1844. The immigrants formed in military fashion. They elected Cornelius Gilliam as general, Michael T. Simmons as colonel, and under these were four captains, R.W. Morrison, Richard Woodcock, Elijah Bunton and William Shaw. They also elected a judge and two associate judges. My folks were in the detachment commanded by William Shaw.
Among the members of the detachment commanded by William Shaw were Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sager with a large family of children. After leaving Fort Laramie, Mr. Sager and two of the Sager boys took sick with a fever. A German doctor, who went by the name of Dr. Dagon, volunteered to drive the wagon. Mr. Sager was getting better and by the time the wagon train had come to the Sweetwater, Mr. Sager thought he was strong enough to go out and hunt buffalo. Dr. Dagon and Mrs. Sager urged him not to go, but he went anyway, and when he came back he took to his bed and a few days later, when they were camped just opposite the mouth of the Big Sandy, where it flows into Green River, Dr. Dagon stayed up all night with Mr. Sager and with Catherine, who had fallen in front of the wagon and had her leg broken. Mr. Sager, knowing he was about to die, got Captain Shaw to promise he would see the family through to the Willamette Valley. Mr. Sager died on the morning of August 27. They cut down a tree, split the trunk and made a coffin for him. Mrs. Sager herself was not strong. She had given birth to a baby on the Little Blue River in Kansas on May 31. I have often heard Mother speak of this baby, for it was passed around to the different women in the wagon train after Mrs. Sager died. Those who had babies nursed the little Sager baby. My sister Lizzie was born on Snake River, so my mother nursed Lizzie and also the Sager baby.
Mrs. Sager, just before she died, while they were camped near where the town of Twin Falls in now located, called Dr. Dagon to her side and told him to take care of the children, which he promised to do, and which he faithfully performed. Mrs. Sager died and was buried at what was then known as Pilgrim Springs. Dr. Dagon with the seven orphaned Sager children arrived at the Whitman Mission October 18, where he left the children with Dr. and Mrs. Whitman while he went on to the Willamette Valley, settling on Rogue River.
Dr. Whitman, when he learned that my father was a miller, asked him to stay there that winter to help grind grain for the immigrants. My parents with their children stayed with the Whitman's from late fall of 1844 till the following fall. My father and mother both liked Dr. Whitman very much. He was a very friendly man and didn't think himself any better than anyone else. Mother said Mrs. Whitman was very capable but quite severe, and not friendly, like the doctor.
I told you that my sister Lizzie was born on the plains, but I didn't tell you that mother rode on horseback all day and that that night Lizzie was born. The next morning mother and her new baby went on with the wagon train, but mother and the baby rode in the wagon instead of on horseback.
Father came on down to the valley in 1845, and he and mother took up a donation land claim of 640 acres three miles northwest of Yamhill. Jim Burton was their nearest neighbor. When father and mother started across the plains to Oregon they had four children, but as Lizzie was born on the plains they have five when they reached Dr. Whitman's mission at Walilatpu. The children who crossed the plains with them were Sarah, Eli, Joe and Elvira. My sister Elvira, now Mrs. Russell, is 87 years old and lives here in Yamhill. of the nine children in our family only three are living--Elvira, my brother Norris, who will be 79 on October 27, and myself.
After attending school in our district I went to Portland and boarded at the home of Vincent Cook while attending St. Helens Hall. Vin Cook came to Oregon in 1854 and was one of the pioneers in the salmon canning industry. George and Horatio Cook came to Portland in 1852. Vin was one of the early-day furniture men of Portland. When I stayed at their home Mr. Cook was a member of the firm of Clark, Henderson & Cook. Their store was located at the corner of First and Washington Streets. Later Vincent Cook, with Captain A.P. and Henry F. Ankeny, bought the Sterling Mine, near Jacksonville. Mr. Cook was president of the company and Henry E. Ankeny vice president. Mr. Cook married Orenoco Ankeny, the daughter of Captain A.P. Ankeny.
I attended St. Helens Hall from the fall of 1869 till the spring of 1871. On September 8, 1873, I married William Walker. My husband died in February 1904. Our daughter, Jenny, married William Hawley. Our son, Guy L. Walker is in road construction work in Utah. William, our next boy, is also building roads at

Klamath Falls. Fred is working at road construction with Guy in Utah. John lives in McMinnville."

I, being the oldest of five children in the Mark LaRoy Felix family, remember many of the mini tragedies that happened through the years. One such event had Rolland and Marette fighting over a button hook and the hook ended up in Marette's eye. Another such time was when Kenneth got his fingers caught in the washing machine wringer.
There were also a lot of good times to remember too! Circus day was always a holiday at our house. We would go to the circus and though we didn't have the money to buy hamburgers at the circus, we would stop at the meat market, on the way home, buy hamburger and our parents would make them for us. After hearing the barkers calling, "Who ever heard of a circus without hamburgers," we were always so hungry. What a treat that was!
There were also the times that Kenneth and I were allowed to get on the street car and take our father's lunch to him. And then there were the little house parties our parents used to have with their friends. Kenneth and I would sit on top of the table and watch "the old folks" play "Pussy Wants a Corner."
Then there was the time Kenneth and I were allowed to stay overnight at some friends of our parents and in the morning we had a new brother. Rolland had been born that 29th of May, 1919.
I was married in my parent's living room at 17 Oxford Street, Oshkosh, when I was 18 years old.

10-24-94: On this day, the anniversary of his birth, reviewing all the paperwork on file and considering the possibility of newfound relatives in the Junction City, WI area, it was remembered that Albert's birth certificate showed a place of birth of Carson Township. That is the township in which Junction City is located and there is an outside chance that his parents were visiting relatives in that part of the county when he [Albert] possibly decided to come a little early. There were many Buelow's in Eau Pleine Township [just north of Carson Township] and one of them, hopefully, can be confirmed as Albert's relation.

A trip to the Junction City area was made this past May (1995) and a lot of Buelow's were visited. One lady, Irma Buelow Bulgrin, stated her father commented that, "the family has relatives near Almond and we need to go visit them sometime." Irma further stated that trip was never made. She also stated that her mother had lots of photographs of the Buelow families but that they were lost when the home was destroyed by fire some years ago. No connection was ever made but I have been on the lookout for any information that would point to that connection.

I am now convinced that the Buelow's of both Eau Pleine and Carson Township are in fact relatives. I believe the patriarch of this part of the Buelow family, Frederick Buelow, is the oldest brother of Albert's father, "Herman."

Eldor started working by helping his father when he was working for Buckstaff Company making caskets. All the boys took a turn handing their father nails. This helped to speed up the process of finishing the caskets and also taught the boys a proper work ethic. By the time Eldor got married his father was a general contractor and so he learned a bit about the carpenter trade but this trade was not for Eldor.
In 1932 he started driving a cab for Oshkosh Cab Company. That year was the beginning of "The Great Depression." Two very good friends got the money together to buy two cabs. Eldor and his two friends kept the cabs going 24-hours a day. Cab fare was 15 cents, anywhere in the city. The drivers kept 40% of the fare as their wages. Unfortunately, some days they didn't make much money.
While driving the cab, he also held down a job driving a bus from Oshkosh to Omro, to Green Lake, Berlin, Ripon and Fond du Lac and return, twice a day. On this job he was known as "The Singing Bus Driver" because he would get the people singing and everyone liked that. He drove the bus until the run was discontinued in 1966.
At that time he went to work, as a salesman, for the Wisconsin Liquor Company and later for Gateway Liquor Company of Fond du Lac. He was working there when he had his first heart attack in November, 1970. He was scheduled to go back to work 1 July 1971 but had a fatal heart attack on 22 May, 1971.
Eldor was also a member of the "Gallon Club," giving more than three gallons of blood during the war.

".....Recently I visited Mrs. Lucretia Walker, a daughter of John Perkins. She was born on her father's donation land claim near Yamhill, September 8, 1848, the day after her father started for the mines. In telling me of her father's trip to the mines, she said: 'Father wanted to wait till my arrival, to see if I was going to be a boy or a girl, but the wagon train was ready, and as my father's mother volunteered to stay with my mother, father decided to go. My father's father, Eli Perkins, as well as Cy Nelson, Ruel Olds, Ben and Jim Johnson and quite a number of our neighbors, joined the wagon train. Father had good luck on the Yuba and also on the American river. He brought back enough gold dust to put up a grist mill and sawmill on the Yamhill river. He built his mill about six miles northwest of North Yamhill. This was the first grist mill and sawmill put up in the county.
I was married September 8, 1873, to William W. Walker. My husband was born in Maine, April 14, 1836, so he was 12 years older than myself. His father was born in Oldtown, Penobscot County, Maine. His mother, Ellen O'Neill Walker, was born in County Cork, Ireland. My husband shipped in his late teens in the coast trade. He became a mate when he was 21, Later he became captain of a brig called the May Hand. It was while he was captain of this brig that he went to Africa; in fact, he went pretty well all over the world. He went to California and lived for a while in San Francisco. In 1858 he left San Francisco and went up to the Fraser River gold diggings in British Columbia. Later he was engaged in steam boating on Puget Sound. In 1860 he came to Portland and put in the next year on the Columbia. In 1861 he went up to the Idaho mines, where he prospected and mined for the next nine years. From 1870 to 1872 he did carpenter work in Portland. In 1872 he went to work for R. R. Thompson, working on a farm in Yamhill county. My husband could turn his hand to almost anything. For a year or two in the late 60's he ran a blacksmith shop at Boise.'"

When "Roy" was 17 years old, he took a job on a merry-go-round and worked one summer going from place to place, not with a whole carnival, but just the one ride. Perhaps one summer was enough of that, because his next job was with a sawmill.
At the age of 26, he married Cora Mae Patten, a young girl of sixteen. They were married in the parlor of her father's home. Following the death of their first child in 1909, they moved to Tomah in Monroe County, where their second child, Beulah was born. After several years in Tomah but before the birth of their third child, Kenneth, they returned to Oshkosh. Roy worked for Oshkosh Trunk Company and The Diamond Match Company prior to going to work for the Wisconsin Power and Light Company where he was a trouble shooter on the electric street cars. It was while there that he lost two of his fingers when the motorman, who did not know that Roy was under the car, drove the car from the car barn.
In the summer of 1922 the family moved to Clark County, the site of Roy's aging father's farm. They went there to manage the farm for his parents but by the time they got there, J. B. had decided that he could still work the farm so that left the young Felix family without a place to live.
Roy bought property a short distance away and with the help of neighbors constructed a two-story frame house. The "house raising" process was so rapid that Roy and his family had a place to sleep that night. The Fall of 1924 brought a tornado through the countryside. It stripped the corn fields of all the ears of corn, the chickens were separated from their feathers and the roof from the house making the house "rock like a cradle." Soon after the tornado, Darrell was born and Roy, with his family, moved back to the farm.
This time it was one year before J. B. decided to move back again, and when he did, the younger Felix family returned to Oshkosh. Roy worked at making grass rugs woven on large looms. A short time later he gained employment at the Winnebago State Hospital (later renamed Winnebago Mental Health Institute) and remained there until retiring. While at "Winnebago" he contacted Painters Colic from the lead in paint and had to transfer to the plastering division. While there, he was instrumental in getting the union started and was eventually made its president.
After the death of his father in 1926, his mother lived with them until her death in 1935. Due to Roy's later health problems, Roy and his wife spent many winters in the dry climate of Arizona. He died on August 11, 1962.
