I am transcribing the Evergreen Cemetary in Ontario, Malheur Co., Oregon and thought I would post pictures of the Pre-1900 headstones for those interested in having them. This is a very large cemetary, there is a possibility there could be other family members buried here after this time period. If you are interested in them, I can look for them specifically.

Dear Cyndi, I was checking the Jaquish message board on Rootsweb and saw your posting. I am a Jaquish researcher and this Arthur Jaquish is in my database. Arthur was married Della Lewis in 1893 in Cook Co., Illinois. They had two daughters, Verna and Dorothy, both born in Illinois. That is all I know about them. Now that I know he is buried in Oregon, I will try searching census records and see if I can come up with anything. Do you live in Ontario? Is there an historical society there? I thought I could add to this family is they stayed in the area. Jack Leaven

Hi Jack, What do you know about Arthur Jaquish's genealogy?
My great grandmother was Sarah Jaquish, married to Platt Newcomb. My grandmother used to tell stories about her mother's family, but I have little real evidence about them.
Thank you. Todd Nelson

Todd, I got your post this evening. Yes, I am still doing Jaquish research. We are going to publish a two volume set on the family. I need to go back and re-read Arthur's family. I know who Arthur is but I can't remember where he belongs specificly. My direct email address is jleaven@wyoming.com. I can tell you more tomorrow as I am work right now. Jack

Todd, I checked my Arthur Jaquish file and found him as the son of Richard Jaquish and Ellen Smith. Arthur has one brother, Louis, and one sister, Jennie. Louis had one daughter, Jessie Mabel, who married Carl Johann Carlson and that family ended up in Spokane and Seattle. Jennie married Dr. John Faucett and they lived in Barron, Jackson Co., Oregon. Jennie died in Ashland, Oregon in 1921. Arthur married Dephline "Della, Lewis in 1893 in Cook Co., Illinois probably in Chicago. In 1900, they are living in Yellowknife, Kankakee, Illinois with two daughters. In 1910, they are living in Ashland, Oregon with four daughters. Arthur died 25 Jan 1918 in Ontario, Oregon. I received an email from a woman there who sent me the date from the records. Their eldest daughter, Verna, married in Ontario, OR in 1916 and they had two children.
Your Sarah A. Jaquish was most likely the daughter of Cornelius Jaquish and Martha Johnson. In the 1870 census, their daughter is listed as Sarah W. Jaquish. She was born about 1849 according to the census. The middle initial is the only thing that is different. Let me know what you think. Jack

Hi Jack, Since we last corresponded, I have found the Jaquish ancestory on ancestory.com and have learned that Richard and Cornelius Jaquish were brothers. The ancestory.com records for Cornelius are incomplete. How does one go about giving them more information on his descendants?

Did the information that I sent you about my great grandmother Sarah Jaquish and her husband and descendants reach you? I obtained it from her family Bible.

My grandmother always insisted that the Jaquish family was French. I now find out that the family immigrated from England. Do you know if there was any connection ever to France through the wives of any of this family?

Take care, Todd Nelson

Todd, Yes, I did get the information you sent and it is entered in my records. Yes, Richard and Cornelius were brothers. There are two branches of the Jaquish family from Delaware county, NY. The publisher in Saskatchewan is working on publishing a correct history on the family. I will be happy to let you know when the book is finished if you want one. Or, I can send you Kathie's email and you can contact her directly. My direct email address is jleaven@wyoming. Keep in touch. Do you live in Oregon? I have forgotten if you told me or not. The Jaques/Jaquish family did emigrate from England but they were originally French. There is a lot more work that needs to be done on that history but I doubt anyone ever will. I think it would be very expensive to have it doene. Jack

I forgot to ask what you did send exactly because now I'm not sure. I found you entry on Rootsweb Family Trees but I only have a birth & death date for Eldon Platt. Was he your father or grandfather? I will go check my file cabinet later today where I store all of my genealogy material and let you know what I find. Did you send me the complete names and dates for Earl & Arlie's children? Do you know Arlie's complete name. I found a Arlie Marie Newcomb in Oregon death dates on Ancestry. I assume it is her. I want to make sure I have this correct. Jack

Hi Jack, Thanks for the speedy reply. For ten years, we lived in Weiser, ID, which is just across the Snake River from Oregon and about 20 miles from Ontario, OR. Now, we are retired and back at the family ranch 55 miles north of Weiser in the mountains near the small town of Council.

To me, Jaques is very French. I have been told that the name could easily be Scottish. French is much more likely. Grandmother always said that her parents spoke in French when they did not want their children to understand them and that they were both French. Her father, Platt Newcomb, came from a branch of the Newcomb family that for one generation did live in French Canada; however, I also have found on ancestory.com that they, too, immigrated from England.

When the Jaquish book comes out, I will be interested in it.

Thanks, Todd Nelson

My father was Robert Platt Nelson. I do not know who Eldon Platt was. Is the Earl that you are referring to Earl Newcomb? I only know the information that I sent you. It came from the Newcomb family Bible that originally was Platt and Sarah Jaquish Newcomb's. Grandmother (Lessie Angelina Newcomb Nelson) had continued making entries in it after it was given to her.

My parents had contact with Earl's children, but I never met them and have no way of contacting them. I don't recall seeing any of their names in my mom's old address book. I will try to find it and double check. No promises on any success there. I will also dig out the Newcomb Bible and check on the data there.

My direct e-mail address is mdtnels@gmail.com

Have a great day. Todd Nelson
