In Memory. Hon. Samuel Vinton Burt was born in Edgar county, Illinois on April 17, 1833, and in that grand old state spent his boyhood days. Soon after arriving at the age of twenty-one the restless sprit within him caused him to wend his way to Wisconsin, where he married and resided for many years. Being a man of push and energy he soon became identified with the affairs of Dunn county and was elected sheriff of that county. But owing to poor health he decided to move and soon after the expiration of his term of office he moved to Sibley county, Minnesota, where he resided until he came to Oregon. During his resident in Minnesota his sterling qualities and business capacity was recognized by his fellow men and held numerous positions of trust. In 1885 Judge moved from Minnesota to Oregon, settling upon a homestead two and hone-half miles from Toledo, but owing to continued poor health he decided to give up farming and moved to Toledo, where he followed the carpenter trade. Among other building of his construction is the Blake Hotel.

Since settling in Toledo he held the office of Justice of the Peace and was postmaster under the Harrison administration for three years. And the citizens of Lincoln county reposing trust in him elected him as county judge June 1, 1894. Since which time his health gradually became worse until last Monday when his spirit took its flight.

Ferr, Thomas
The Lincoln County leader, 05 Mar 1915

Thomas Ferr died at his home in West Yaquina February 27th, 1915, aged 76 years. Mr. Ferr was born in Caglaria, Sardina, Italy, in 1839; came to Yaquina Bay January 1, 1866; was married to Miss Jane Crigy December 18, 1868. Nine children were born to Mr, and Mrs, Ferr, as follows: Mrs. VD Boone, Miss Daisy Ferr, who live at home, Mrs. Ed Seidler, Mrs. JC Backus, Mrs. GH Damon, who lives at Toppnish, Wash., Msis Margaret, Francis and Royal, who live at home and Albert, who died some years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Ferr have fourteen grandchildren. The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Monday at ten o'clock a.m., conducted by Rev. Dr. Gwyn officiating. The casket was decorated with beautiful flowers. The interrment took place in Eureka cemetery. The pall bearers were pioneers and neighbors, as follows; Judge Fogarty, Frank Priest, William Matthers, Wm. Willis, Jack Vigars and FM Carter. Funeral Director OR Hollingsworth has charge of the arrangements. Mr. Ferr took up a homestead near Oyster City in 1866, where he lived until a few years ago when he sold the old home and moved to West Yaquina, where he lived to the time of his death, having bought the beautiful home overlooking the bay, formerly owned by Judge DP Blue. Mr. Ferr was one of the first settlers on the bay when the country was new and but few persons and, with his family, endured the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life. He identified himself with the moral, education, temperance and religious work of the community and also the industrial work. He was a member of the Methodist Church and raised a large family under the best of home influences. But few men have gone through as much exposure and hardships as Thomas Ferr. He engaged in farming, stockraising, oyster and fish business for nearly a quarter of a century. In the death of Thomas Ferr Yaquina Bay has lost one of her best citizens, a man possessed of a large measure of kindness, sympathy and toleration of the frailties and faults of human nature. A few days before he died he called the family around him and bid them farewell, saying not to weep for him as all was well. He set his house in order and then closed his eyes in this world and passed on, as we believe, to awaken in the elysium fields of God's paradise to begin the new and better life, which we are told, will never end. All the members of the family were present at his death except Albert, who died some years ago. Mr. Ferr lived in this country nearly half a century and saw it grow from a wilderness to its present state of development with the prospects of being one of the best parts of Oregon.

Hand, William H.
Maquoketa Excelsior, 8 Nov 1912

The Excelsior publishes the following notice from the Newport Oregon Signal of the death of W. H. Hand, a former resident of Maquoketa: After an illness extending over a year or more, caused by valvular heart trouble, William Henry Hand died at the family home in this city, Tuesday evening October 22, aged 58 years. Mr. Hand, accompanied by his wife, came to Newport about one year ago, and few men during the length of residence, have made as many warm and sincere friends as did he. Warm hearted and interested in every movement calculated to benefit his fellows, he was active so far as his frail health would permit and attracted strong friends at once. Mr. Hand was born in Kosciusko County, Indiana, September 2, 1854, but for the greater part of his life was prominently identified with the business interests of Maquoketa, where he was engaged in the lumber trade. There his keen interest in civic affairs resulted in his being elected to the city council and holding other city offices frequently. He was also active as a church worker and was Superintendent of the M. E. Church Sunday School for a period of years. Public spirited, he was faithful to all trusts imposed on him and his sterling qualities of head and heart also made his home life most happy. He is survived by his second wife, Mrs. Olive Ray Metcalf to whom he was married about four years ago; also four children by a former marriage, one son and a daughter in Colorado and a daughter and son in Iowa, three brothers, Frank of Colorado, J. A. and J. M. of this county, and three sisters, one here and two in Oklahoma, also mourn the loss of an affectionate brother. The funeral service was largely attended and took place from the late home in this city, this afternoon, the Rev. C. T. Hurd officiating, interment in the Eureka Cemetery.
