53 In your Brasfield ~ Brassfield Genealogies the parents of Leta Benn (wife of Raymond Aaron Brasfield) are listed as Edward Benn and Martha Redmond. My information is that her parents were Samuel Benn (the founder of Aberdeen, Washington) and Martha Redman, a daughter of Rueben Redman who was an early settler in the Grays Harbor area.

'The first classes for Aberdeen's school children were held in a
pioneer home. Mary Benn, Samuel's daughter, in 1889 told the Pioneer
Association of her experiences... "our first school teacher taught at
the Judson Scammon house. We walked through a trail in the thick
woods to reach school, and as there were so many wild animals at that
time, father told us always to keep together so that the cougars or
other prowling forest dwellers wouldn't harm us. There were not
enough children in the whole county to pay a teacher for a full term's
work and father used to make up out of his own pocket the delinquent
amount." '
It is likely that Mary moved to Bend earlier than 1935.

Going to California to find out what happend to two missing brothers
who were working the goldfields, Sam left New York City aboard the
steamer 'Northern Light' on 5 March 1856 bound for Panama. At Colon
he crossed the isthmus by rail to Balboa. There he boarded the paddle
wheeler 'Sonora' for California, arriving on the 26th of March. When
Sam arrived where his brothers had been mining, he discovered they had
drowned in the Feather River. The river was flooding but they had
gone into town for supplies, but their boat capsized while returning
to camp. In April 1859 Sam and a cousin, George Hubbard, sailed from
California to Victoria, Canada. There they bought a sailboat and
sailed Puget Sound for a month looking for a place to settle. When
they stopped in Olympia they heard of the Chehalis valley and
travelled overland to scout the area. Liking what they found they
returned to Olympia for their boat and supplies needed to settle,
arriving back at their homesteads on June 15, 1859. Sam chose the
south bank while George picked the north bank of the Chehalis. At the
site of the present (1935) Wishkah bridge, Sam founded his first home
on Garys Harbor. Aberdeen, Washington was the town Sam founded. To
help bring the railroad to his town, Sam gave land to any man
providing 5 days labor building the rail line. Land was also given to
anyone who paid for the 5 days labor.
According to his death certificate, Sam died of senility. This
doesn't agree with what Sam's surviving family recalled about him and
what was written in his obituaries printed in the Aberdeen newspapers.
He was noted for having a sharp mind. The headline of 'The Aberdeen
Daily World' (17 Sept. 1935 front page) reads "BENN DEAD; SORROW GRIPS
HARBOR, Father Of Aberdeen Expires Peacefully, Mind Clear To Last"
The obituaries refer to a recent illness (of several months) that
wasn't specified.
The funeral services, officiated by Wm. McDowell, Russel Mack and Rev.
Sylvester Robertson, were held at 2 pm in the First Congregational
church, First and H streets in Aberdeen. Governor Clarence D. Martin
and other state officals came from Olympia to attend the funeral. The
services were broadcast on KXRO radio "to permit those who through
illness or the size of the crowd cannot be present inside the church"
- 'Grays Harbor Washingtonian'. A front page article in the same
paper reported 'City offices, stores and other business places of
Aberdeen will be closed Thursday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 o'clock
as a final salute to Aberdeen's "grand old man." '
This year is from the information on his death certificate provided by
his daughter, Leta Benn Brasfield. According to the book "The River
Pioneers", Sam immigrated as an infant which could have been 10+ years
earlier. This earlier date agrees with an article in 'The Daily
World' (Aberdeen, WA; Sunday July 4, 1976; page A-9 column 4).
However one of his obituaries says 'although he left there (Emo,
Queens county, Ireland) as a small boy he could recall the place quite
well, even in his last days.'
Sam renounced his allegiance to the Queen United Kingdom of Great
Britain & Ireland. The witness was William Kingsley (Sam's mother's
maiden name). Sam apparently kept his Irish birth a secret from the
other residents of Aberdeen, except his family who knew. He did show
his naturalization papers to Victor Lindberg, the Aberdeen city
comptroller, who kept his secret joke until Sam's death.
Sam still earned a living as a carpenter. Being sheriff didn't pay
well and took too much time, so Sam didn't keep the job for many
years (The Pacific Coast Directory, 1867 lists Samuel Benn as Chehalis County Sheriff in Montesano, Chehalis, Washington Territory).
Sam was also a volunteer fireman with the Brooklyn Fire Department.
Mayors in Aberdeen serve 1 year terms.
Sam received a telegram from President Herbert Hoover, "Felicitations
and God's continued blessing to Aberdeen's beloved pioneer father from
a grateful nation on the occasion of the centennial of his birth."

58 I just found your info and Ancestry.com and your website. I was wondering if you have anymore information on Eugene Brassfield (1913-2000) that married Cassie Bennett. I just received Cassie's obit in the mail and was looking for more information on Eugene. Cassie's mother was Mary Henderson, a half-sister to my mother-in-law. I have just recently found this line and am trying to find any one that is connected to this family that might give more information. In Cassie's obit, it said that she was survived by her husband, a sister Ella Ludwig of Ann Arbor, MI, a nephew Clarence Partien of Plymouth, MI, and a niece Helen Waler of Cincinniati, OH. From the information that I received, Cassie's death may have been suicide. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

72 Michael, In the papers of John William Boatman who was my wife's gggrandfather were these two obituaries. ((((((( Died - Boatman- On Thursday March 13, 1884 at the residence of his son-in-law, Henry Boatman, in his 78th year. The funeral services were held at the Bower school house in Clayton township and was conducted by Rev. A. B. Buckner. A large number of friends and relatives met to pay this last act of solemn respect and tribute to the aged dead. After the conclusion of the obsequis the remains were taken to be sent to Knox County, Ill., the former home of the dead. Deceased was born June 11, 1806, in Highland Co., Ohio. He came to this county in 1874. Joined the M. E. church in 1843 of which he was a steadfast and consistent member up to the time when the great Father called him higher. Children and relatives and a host of friends mourn his taking off, butfind consolation in the fact that their loss is his eternal gain. )))) ((( Died, at his residence in Riverton, Fremont County, Iowa, Jan. 6th,1885, of Typhoid Pneumonia, Mr. George Boatman, aged 53 years and 20 days. His remains were consigned to the Riverton cemetery by the side of his little daughter, who preceded him about five years ago. He leaves a wife and one little boy, Frankie by name, aged seven years. Mr. Boatman was born in Highland County, Ohio, and came to this county about eight years ago, where he resided for about four years, from whence he removed to Riverton, where he remained until his death, working at the wagon-maker's trade until the day of his sickness, which lasted one week, during which time he was a great, though patient sufferer. He was converted and united with the M. E. Church about one year ago under the pastorate of Rev. E. E. Lymer, by whom his funeral sermon was preached from the very appropriate text " Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him." He was greatly respected by all with whom he was acquainted, and died as he had lived with all men, in great peace. Thus passing over the swellings of the Jordan to join his little daughter on the shining banks beyond.)))) The dates for Henry would be : b. Jun. 11, 1806 and d. Mar 13, 1884. George's dates would be :b. Dec 17, 1831 and d. Jun. 6, 1885. It is hard for me , as an Ohio boy, to decide what newspapers these obits were in or any connections to the places in Iowa. I have: John William Boatman b. Jan 29, 1843 and d. Oct 11, 1924, married Mary Elizabeth Williamson, b. Oct 6, 1845 and d. Mar. 6, 1885. ( I think they were married in Knox County, IL)They had two boys: Archie Arthur, b. Aug 30, 1870 in IL and a Cyde Lee, b. Mar. 20, 1878. Cyde died Nov. 15, 1887 and (the story is) Archie took Clyde as a middle name to honor his deceased brother. All later references to Archie are: Archie Clde Boatman. In Archies obituary it says he was a native of Galesburg, Il. Archie married Gertrude Medora Huntington who was born in Wisconsin in 1874. They had a daughter: Ferne Huntington Baotman who was born in 1894 in Creston, Iowa. They eventually settled in Atlanta where both Archie and Medora are buried. Ferne married a Leonard Lamb and had several children including Mary Jane who is my wife's mother. My questions to you are: Do any of the people, locations, or dates ( particularly from the two obits) ring a bell??? Does the Creston, Iowa connection for Archie, Medora, and Ferne mean anything to you? Does the Huntington connection mean anything to you? I have a STRONG feeling that we are talking about the same family !!!!!! Your page on Rootsweb says 1831 for John's birth but... could that be incorrect? Any more info or insights would be greatly appreciated. Anxiously awaiting your reply....... Warmest regards to my wife's....... cousin???? Rick srbrewer@voyager.net BOATMAN George Washington

93 Nicole - I am back home now and have had a chance to check my material. Aaron Brasfield (1910 - 1983) of Gonzales, Gonzales County, Texas turned up in a search of Social Security records (459-07-5961). I added him to the "family file" even though I don't know anything about him or his ancestry or descendents. I do this quite often with "unknowns" in hopes of finding a lead later on. I would love to add additional information if you are willing to share it. Is there anything I can offer to assist you? Mike Michael D.
