Note: Jacob Andrew Jackson Campbell walked out to Oregon from Nebraska then went back and brought out his family… they came out by rail… and settled at Brush Prairie, Clark county, WA… from Lynn Woodward, son of Amelia Campbell Woodward

Comment: the railroad came to Portland in 1883… since the Campbell family was still in NE in 1885 the train seems practical …ldr

My mother (Amelia Campbell) told me she was born in Council Bluffs, [Pottawattamie county], Iowa… and she talked about walking behind a covered wagon to Rochester, [Olmsted county], Minnesota… Lynn Woodward

Comment: From Council Bluffs to Rochester is about 350 miles… Louville was born at Oronoco about 16 miles north of Rochester in 1863… Gertrude was born at Niobrara in NE in 1876… there must have been some backtracking involved… wonder what the attraction was… Rachel’s family had already gone to Colorado… maybe Jacob’s family was still in the Minnesota area… ldr

Mother married in 1888, she waited for her 18th birthday which made her an adult… She was working for Gertrude and her husband Phil Stamp who were working at the old Brower Mill where my Dad was a sawyer. Her folks were at Brush Prairie, Washington, near Vancouver. So she walked up the river to just below the Cape Horn, as we called it, took a rowboat across the river to Latourell, walked eight miles up the old wagon road to Brower, which was in the canyon half way between Bridal Veil and the later Palmer Mill… from Lynn Woodward

Comment: Gertude Campbell and Phil Stamp did not marry till much later… the reference must be to Louville Campbell and her husband William Townsend Pine… ldr

Dad (Alfred Smith Woodward) used to talk about their weekends at Brower… they would work ten or twelve hours on Saturday then walk eight miles to Latourell… dance all night, at least till daybreak… then play baseball all day… then walk eight miles back up the hill to Brower… from Lynn Woodward
