BAILEY, John B.
b. 11 May 1795
d. 21 Apr 1894 OLD 178-04
"NEARLY A CENTURY--John B. Bailey the Oldest Man in Salem--Something of His Career--Will Be A Hundred Years Old in Two Years More--An old man with whitened beard and dimmed eyes seated in a rocking chair and bending forward with his head upon his cane to catch the warmth of the flickering blaze in an ancient looking fireplace formed a picture that greeted a Statesman reporter yesterday when he was ushered into the home of W.H. Cross in North Salem to see the oldest man in the county, and perhaps the oldest in the state--Grandpa John B. Bailey, who is rapidly approaching the ninety-eighth anniversary of his birthday.
He was born on the eleventh day of May, 1795, near Granville, N.C., twelve years after the close of the revolution and while Washington was serving his second term as president of the United States. He continued to live there sometime, and on the 11th of May 1824--in the year of John Quincy Adam's election to the presidency, Lafayette's memorable visit to America, and before Henry Clay and Daniel Webster reached the height of their fame--he married Miss Sarah Trullinger, near Greensboro, Gilford county. She was born in the same year as her husband and died at the age of 80 in Marshfield, Oregon.
Ungrateful Children--There he raised a family of nine children, one of whom died at the age of 20 years. Nancy Catherine and Elizabeth are also dead. His surviving children are: John and George age 63 and 61 years respectively, who are thought to be residents of southern Oregon; Henry, aged 70, of Red Oak, Iowa; Mrs. Sarah Bruner, of Kansas, aged 55; and Mrs. Matilda J. Cross, of this city, aged 51 years. The old man's children, with the exception of the latter, have become lost in the affairs of the world and do not even know where he is or care whether he is alive or dead.
About 1832 he moved with his family from North Carolina to Orange county, Indiana, and later to Fountaine county, which was about the time the source of the Mississippi river was discovered and the first horse cars were run on the streets of New York city.
In the year 1842 Grandpa Bailey, becoming dissatisfied with the Hoosier state and longing for life in the wilds of Missouri, emigrated there and became one of the pioneers of Dallas county where he remained three years. His next move was to Monroe county, Iowa, where he lived with his family about twenty years.
Restlessness again overcame him and he started across the plains with an ox team for this state, arriving here in '64, when he was 69 years old. Roseburg was his first location and from there he went to Oregon City--the anti-chamber of the state. After two years spent there Grandpa Bailey betook himself and wife to Lancaster, in the vicinity of Harrisburg. They were too old to live alone by that time and soon left there to go to Marshfield, Coos county, to live with their son. After a residence of ten years there, during which Grandma Bailey died, the old man came to Salem in 1875 to make his home with his daughter, Matilda.
A Pleasant Home--He has lived there ever since, surrounded by loving ones who make his life as pleasant as possible. He spends most of his waking hours in front of the fireplace in the sitting room wandering in a world of fancies. He has a fondness for visitors and can enjoy a joke with as much zest as anyone. He likes to talk of his great age and nothing pleases him better than to be told he looks quite young for one of his age, which is true.
His bedtime is from 7 to 9 p.m. and he usually sleeps until 12 or 2 in the afternoon. Breakfast is taken to him and he eats in bed and takes a nap afterward. He is a hearty eater and takes his other meals at the table with the family. He always shaves himself and can use a razor better than most men. The family afford him a great deal of enjoyment by reading to him. He never becomes cross or troublesome like many old people.
The Bird Escaped--Two years ago he shouldered his gun and started hunting. He had not gone far before he saw a grouse sitting on a tree, and, raising the weapon to his shoulder, he prepared to take deliberate aim and shoot off the head of the bird. He shut his left eye as he had done many a time before with the intention of glancing out along the glistening barrel. Something was wrong. He tried again, and with no more success, and it was then for the first time that he learned that the sight of his right eye was gone. The other eye is failing now and he can hardly distinguish anyone.
He is a great lover of angling and until recently would walk long distances to throw his line in a trout pool. For one of his age he walks very sprightly even now.
A year ago last February he suffered temporary aberration for a period of three days, and when he regained his mind he was taken sick and came near dying.
Grandpa is a singer--Last New Year's day he visited his nephew, Martin Bailey, at Marion, where he met many of the early settlers of the state. He was quite jovial and during the evening sang several songs in a very lively strain.
When asked how many grandchildren he had, the nonogenarion replied, "Why, why, I really can't think of them all," and laughing heartily, he turned to his daughter and said, "Tillie, you'll have to help me." His grandchildren number nearly ninety, and he has ever so many great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. Levi Bailey, of South Salem, is a nephew of the old gentleman, and Mrs. Gus Kaiser, of this city, is a granddaughter.
Reminiscential--With some difficulty Grandpa Bailey was induced to talk of some of his earlier military recollections. He intended to enter the Black Hawk war, but the Indian chief was captured before he enlisted. In 1861 when the civil war broke out he was 66, and, being too old to enter the service, he joined the "Graybeards" or home guards. When a boy he was on many of the old revolutionary battlefields and remembers seeing cannon balls and other evidence of the conflict scattered about.
The old man dwelt lovingly on his reminiscences of the wonderful pigeon roots of Missouri, which was eight miles long and six miles wide. The pigeons were so numerous that the timber was broken to pieces by their great weight. They were always flying to and fro and the force of their wings was so great it would blow a man's hat off.
May 11th has been a great day for him throughout his ninety-eight years of life, he says. He was born on that date, first saw his wife on May 11th and on that day of the month was afterward married to her. He was never engaged in a law suit and has been a member of the Christian church for many years. Politically he was a Whig in his younger days but later became a Republican and has voted that ticket ever since--except once, and that was last November, when no conveyance was at hand to take him to the polls--casting eighteen presidential ballots during that time.
Proud of His Strength--Grandpa Bailey takes a great pride in the great physical powers possessed at a younger age and enjoys telling what he did when "slights of art and feats of strength went round". "I came from a healthy family," said he. "My father died at the age of 93 and my mother was nigh onto a hundred and both my grandfathers were very old. When I lived in Clackamas county I was 72. One morning I went out and split 100 rails before dinner. When I was 80 I could more'n most men. I weight about 185 when I was in good health and I was right in the prime of life between 60 and 70. When I was in Clackamas I dug sixty bushels of potatoes a day."
The old gentleman talks very slowly and with a great many pauses he continued, brightening as he proceeded. "I was a great wrestler, too. I used to like to get holt of a champion. Once when I was passing through Greensboro I saw eight or nine hundred men standing in a ring. I goes up and says, "Hello, what's up?" Her's a man wants to bet $5 he can lay any man on his back, said some fellow. I saw the champion. He was all trigged out ready for the scuffle. I says, "If you'll put a mark on the ground I'll lay his back on it". We, sir, I hadn't more'n got holt of him before I flopped him right flat of his back." And the old man laughed heartily at the recollection of the exploit.
As the reporter rose to go the old gentleman took him by the hand and half threateningly remarked: "If I had my bearing and my eyesight I believe I could get around among the girls and cut some of you young fellows out," and when the man of pencils left Grandpa was gleefully enjoying his own joke."

"Aged Brother Hard Hit--Miss Baxter, 72, Dies--Funeral Today--Relative Stricken--Miss Elizabeth Baxter, aged 72, passed away at the state tuber-cular sanatorium yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, after lingering for about three years with a distressing ill-ness. Miss Baxter had been an inmate of the Methodist Old People's home for three years before her removal to the state institution and it was the one great sorrow of her life that she was obliged to leave the home and a brother, Alex, aged 83, who was also an inmate, and spend the last year of her life in the tubercular hospital.
The aged brother was taken to the bedside of the sufferer early yester-day morning. He is in a weakened state at present due to his sorrow and his advanced age.
The funeral services will be held this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at Rigdon and Richardson's undertaking parlors. Rev. Richard N. Avison, pastor of the First M.E. church, will officiate. The interment will take place in the family plot belonging to the Old People's home in Jason Lee cemetery. Elizabeth Baxter and her brother, Alex, came to America from Scotland about thirty years ago. They were members of a fine old Scotch family and there was no doubt much consternation among the members of the Baxter household when the young people decided to leave the family home and seek their fortunes in the new world. Another brother, John, also came to America and is at present living at Forest Grove. After spending some time in the eastern states the brother and sister came west and settled in Forest Grove. Neither married and the golden years of their life have been spent caring for the wants of each other. The parents in Scotland died and soon the sister and brothers in America were left alone. Elizabeth and Alex were well along life's pathway and after much deliberation they decided to become inmates of the Old People's home. Here they lived happily as members of the congenial family until illness destroyed the health of the sister. She gradually declined until her removal to the state institution was absolutely necessary. The aged brother was deeply affected by the parting, coupled with old age, and her passing has made his condition precarious.
Both brother and sister have been lifelong members of the Scottish Presbyterian church. Miss Baxter was born October 31, 1842, leaving her home for America in the primes of her life." OS Dec 5, 1914 3:5-6

According to Coroner Clough, who was notified immediately after the body was discovered, the man had been dead several days. Death was probably caused by heart failure.
Bell was familiarly known in the neighborhood as an eccentric old bachelor. He rarely visited among the neighbors of the vicinity and very seldom had company.

b. 08 Oct 1828
d. 02 Jun 1906 OLD 179-01
"Judge Benjamin F. Bonham Died at His Home in This City This Morning at 3:30--Judge Bonham was born October 8, 1828, near Knoxville, Tenn., but spent his boyhood in Indiana, to which state his parents moved when he was but 12 years of age. Of the seven children in the family, Judge Bonham was one of the two survivors, and the only one to come to the Pacific coast. He received his education in the public schools and in the Delaware County Seminary, at Muncie, Ind. In 1853 he came across the plains, arriving in Oregon in September, and for the first two years was engaged in teaching school on French Prairie and in Salem. In the meantime he had been studying law diligently, with a view to enter-ing the legal profession; and in 1856 he was admitted to the bar. The unsettled condition of the country at that time had need of just such latent resources as were embodied in the promising young attorney, who at once stepped into positions requiring tact and ability. In the early '50s he held various territorial offices--auditor, librarian and superintendent of schools, in Marion county, and while thus diversely engaged served as a member of the last territorial and the first state legislature.
Upon retiring from public office he began to devote his entire attention to the practice of law. In 1870, he was elected a member of the supreme court, at the same time serving as exofficio judge of the circuit court for six years. From 1874 to 1876 he was chief justice of the Oregon supreme court. At the close of his term he formed a law partnership with Judge W.M. Ramsey, which continued until 1885. In 1885 his services for the Democratic party were rewarded by Grover Cleveland with an appointment to the consul-generalship to British India. For four years he represented the United States at Calcutta, with credit to himself and to the entire satisfaction of both governments.
His experience in the foreign services, at one of his most important posts, enabled him to gain a complete knowledge of internal law of a much more practical nature than could have been gained in any of the technical institutions of learning. He returned home in August, 1890, resumed the practice of law, and formed a partner-ship with W.H. Holmes.
In 1894 he was appointed postmaster of Salem, and held the office for four years. He again resumed the practice of his profession, and in 1899 entered into a partnership with Carey F. Martin, a graduate of the University of Oregon.
In 1858, at Salem, Judge Bonham was united in marriage with Mildred A. Baker. Of the seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. Bonham, only two are now living, Ralph P., a young attorney at law, and Mrs. Winona M. Larkins.
Judge Bonham was also held in high esteem by the legal fraternity of this city, and for a period of eight years he was president of the Marion County Bar Association.
Arrangements have been made for the funeral to be held at 3 o'clock tomorrow (Sunday) and Rev. Barr G. Lee will officiate. The interment will be in Lee Mission cemetery." DCJ Jun 2, 1906 12:1-2

Mrs. Bonham was the widow of the late Judge B.F. Bonham, who died in this city about a year ago, and who was one of the most prominent men in the development of Marion county, having served several successive terms as Salem's postmaster and as consul to India, where Mrs. Bonham accompanied him, and where they resided for about seven years.
Mrs. Bonham was born August 6, 1840, in Illinois, and with her parents Mr. and Mrs. John Baker, removed to Oregon when but seven years of age. Her aged father, Mr. John Baker, at whose home she passed away, survives her, although 91 years of age, and in addition, she leaves a son, Raphael Bonham, U.S. inspector of immigration at Astoria, and Mrs. Winona Larkins of this city.
The immediate cause of Mrs. Bonhams' death was a bronchial affection, although she has been in frail health for several years. She was an active Christian worker and a member of the Episcopal church of this city.
The funeral will be held from the home of her father, John Baker, on the Garden road, at 4:30 this afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. Barr G. Lee, of St. Paul's church and interment will be made at Lee Mission cemetery." DOS Jul 28, 1907 8:4 widow; born IL; housewife; died of Bronchitis; name shown as Matilda Bonham per D/C #4205

"Hurled To His Death--Ralph E. Bowerman Killed by a Southern Pacific Train--Near Turner On Sunday Night--Attempted to Cross the Track with Team and Wagon When the Albany Local Struck Him--Ralph E. Bowerman who has for some time resided on the old Ollie Reeves farm about three miles southeast of Turner, was killed at 6:40 o'clock, Sunday evening, by the south-bound Albany local passenger train, at a crossing one and a half miles east of Turner, while attempting to drive across the track in front of the train.
Mr. Bowerman spent Sunday with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. David Bowerman, on the farm four miles east of this city, and in the evening, after bringing his sister to Salem where she is attending school, he started for his home on the other side of Turner. He drove a spirited team to a heavy wagon, which contained a cook stove and a number of other articles intended for use on the place where he was living. At Wm. Hilleary's farm the wagon road crosses the railroad diagonally, but for some distance from this point the roads are both clear of brush or timber, as they run through open fields. The railroad is straight and the ground being level, trains usually run at a great speed over this section of track.
Just how Mr. Bowerman's team came into collision with the train will always remain a mystery. He wore a heavy duck coat with the large collar tied up about his head, and as the wind was blowing quite briskly from the south it may have been possible that he did not hear the train as it approached from almost behind him. The whistle, so it is claimed was not sounded for the crossing. But it is difficult to see how the headlight could have failed to give warning of the approaching danger. The engineer and fireman, who saw the team and wagon just before the fatal collision took place and after it was too late to stop the train, say that the horses became frightened and unmanageable and plunged, with their driver, in front of the engine into instant death.
The engine struck the wagon just back of the front wheels. The box and rear wheels were thrown on the east side of the track while the front wheels with the horses fell on the west side. Mr. Bowerman was thrown upon the pilot of the engine, where he was found lying on his back, death having evidently come to him instantly.
The train was brought to a stop as soon as possible and with lanterns the trainmen and passenger began to look for the man and team. The dead horses were readily found by the side of the track, near the road. Fragments of the wagon could be found scattered along the track. The shattered box lay against the fence beside which was found a dog, killed in the collision. It was some time before the body could be located. Men searched along each side of the track for some distance without success, and it was decided to search under the cars thinking that possibly the body might have caught in the rigging beneath a car. The search resulted in finding the body in the position as related above the spring seat belonging to the wagon, lying across it. When it was discovered that the man was dead the train backed up to Turner and the dead man was removed from the engine to the Southern Pacific depot, where the body remained until Coroner D.F. Lane, who was summoned Sunday evening, arrived yesterday morning.
The coroner learned what he could of the accident and decided it unnecessary to hold an inquest. The body was turned over to Undertaker W.T. Rigdon, who brought it to this city. After a careful examination of the body Mr. Rigdon declared that there was not a scratch or a bruise upon it. The neck, however, was dislocated at the point of its juncture with the head, and this was evidently the cause of death.
Deceased was about 27 years of age, a young man of sterling qualities, enjoying the confidence of all his friends and neighbors who was shocked with the news of his sudden taking off. He leaves, to mourn his untimely demise, a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. David Bowerman; a sister, Miss Mary Bowerman, attending school in this city, and one brother, Jay Bowerman, an attorney, formerly of this city, but now located at Condon.
The brother was yesterday notified of the sad accident, and he telephoned last evening from Condon, that he would catch the west-bound train at Arlington at 1:40 this morning reaching Salem at 11 a.m. today.
The funeral will be held in this city tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:30 a.m. Interment in Lee Mission cemetery." DOS Dec 18, 1900 2:1-2

"Gun Discharged-Brophy Is Dead--Former Warden of Penitentiary Meets Accidental Death at Farm--Coroners of Two Counties Investigate But Do Not Find Inquest Necessary--Victim Had Wide Acquaintance in Oregon--Henry B. Brophy, former warden of the state penitentiary, prominent politician and long time Oregon resident was shot and killed yesterday morning near his home in West Salem, when a shotgun which he was carrying for a chance shot at a duck, was accidently discharged while he was attempting to close a gate in his pasture.
He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Cassie Brophy, who lived part of the time at the Brophy town home, 374 North Church street, and by one son, John Brophy, who was interested in the farm in Polk county with his father. Mr. Brophy was 63 years old. Mr. and Mrs. Brophy, Jr., and the wife were at the farm home at the time of the accident.
Hold Funeral Wednesday--Friends are invited to attend the funeral which will be held Wednesday at 2 o'clock from the chapel of Webb & Clough. Rev. F.T. Porter will officiate and burial will be in the Lee Mission cemetery. Two brothers of the deceased, Nicholas Brophy of Tallant and Jeff Brophy of Medford, will arrive in Salem today for the funeral. Another brother, Charles Brophy lives in Los Angeles.
Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock while leading a cow to pasture, Mr. Brophy took a shotgun with him, as has been his early morning custom this season, to shoot ducks and jackrab-bits. He had crossed a little pond, where he frequently found ducks and had passed through a gate when, it is thought, the accident happened.
The gate was of heavy iron frame about eighteen feet long and he had hung the halter of the cow on a rail inside the gate and let the cow loose. Friends surmise that as he turned around to shut the gate that he had temporarily set the gun down. The gate worked with an iron pulley and was hard to close, and possibly caught and jerked, as the gate was found slightly ajar. As the gun was taken up, it is thought that the hammers of it caught on the gate and the gun was discharged.
Death was believed instantaneous.
It was a double barrel shotgun and one load was fired into the chin of Mr. Brophy, burning and tearing away the face. The chin and neck were also badly burned and powder marked. Mr. Brophy was dead when found at 8:15 o'clock yesterday morning by the members of a train crew of the Salem Falls City & Western line, coming from Dallas.
The coroner of Polk county, R.L. Chapman, A.M. Clough, coroner of Marion county, with about forty neighbors and friends, who quickly gathered at the scene of the accident, came to the conclusion that death had resulted from the accidental discharge of the gun.
