CLEMMONS, William (I48280)
2 Oliver Raymond left Connecticut to become a merchant at Dunkirk, Chautauqua County, NY. There he met and married Eunice Bates Elliott of nearby Fredonia; their first child Louisa was born in 1830. In 1831, he moved with his family to St. Joseph County, Michigan.
Oliver built the first frame house in Sturgis, which became a tavern/hotel. He was the first postmaster in the village, keeping the mail for the entire settlement in a candle-box. In 1833, he was appointed a justice of the peace by Governor Porter. In October 1834, Oliver was found guilty of selling liquor to Indians. However, an arrest of judgement was granted because "the name of the particular Mr. Lo not being given, nor the particular locality where the alledged infringement of the law had taken place." Oliver served as acting Justice of the Peace for Burr Oak Township, 1838. During the 1840s, the family apparently spent time in Wabash County, Indiana, where several children were born, including youngest son John Mulford Raymond in 1847.
Oliver departed for California in 1849 to pursue the gold rush, leaving his family at White Pigeon, Michigan, at the home of brother-in-law Dr. William Elliott. Oliver and fellow 49er John Sturgis endured great hardships crossing the California desert, documented by Sturgis in a letter (see source notes).
In 1860, Oliver perhaps learned that his wife had died in White Pigeon, and so returned to Michigan. Folklore provides that Oliver was very successful as a miner and that, on his return from California with a sizable fortune and accompanied by another White Pigeon miner returning home, the two were bushwhacked; Oliver losing all or the majority of his gold, and his travel partner his life.
The 1860 census has him at White Pigeon, occupation given as "Clerk of Foundry". He died the following year. An extensive search has not revealed his grave site.

Following are excerpts from "History of St. Joseph County, 1827-1877":
"At this last term [Apr 1835] Oliver Raymond, being found guilty under an indictment for selling liquor to Indians, moved an arrest of judgement because the indictment was indefinite - the name of the particular Mr. Lo not being given, nor the particular locality where the alleged infringement of the law had taken place. At the October term the pleas was allowed... " (p. 27)
"In 1832, Oliver Raymond buried two little girls in Sturgis Prairie." (p. 35)
"Oliver Raymond settled in Sturgis in 1830." (p. 71)
"The first frame house was built by Oliver Raymond in 1831, and used by him for a hotel." (p. 72)
"Oliver Raymond was the first postmaster in the [White Pigeon] village, and he kept the mail of the entire settlement in a single pigeon-hole, which comprised an entire candle-box." (p. 74)
"Oliver Raymond taught the school [Union School of Sturgis] the winter term of 1839-40 for twenty-six dollars per month, and boarded himself, but being taken sick, Angus McKerne filled his contract." (p. 75)
"Township of Burr Oak established Apr 2, 1838, Oliver Raymond, Esq. acting Justice of the Peace." (p. 182)

4 !Coral remarried John Mac Williams on 16 Nov 1964, Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Our family was living in Perrydale, PolkCo.. Ore. at the time. Jo hn wasa
sociology professor at Oklahoma St. Univ. and was interested in the
process of subsistence liv- ing in modern times. We lived on a 40 acre
farm for the 1st two years of their marriage- share cropping oats and
vetch, raising a few small chickens and dairy calves. the living
standards were meager at best. This was during 1964-1966. John often kept
correspondence with major writers and professors around the United States,
many of whom helped to Foster what was later called the "hippy" movement.
John felt quite strongly that the whole intent of his colleagues efforts
had been corrupted by later inclusion of the youth element and their
drugs.(Submitted by Michael R. Gates.)

John and Coral were married at Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mike was 16 at the time
of the marriage. He recollections are from his perspective. (by C.-L.

5 !Kelly drowned on 17 July 1989, was brain dead, and died 22 July at
Emmanuel Hospital, Portland, Oregon. His funeral was held at LakeridgeLD S
Chapel, Lake Oswego, Oregon on Tuesday 25 July and was buried at Crescent
Grove Cemetery, Tigard, Oregon. He is close to his Grandmother Lewis'

April 14, 1988-July 22, 1989. Such a short life, and how sad. His
paternal grandparents and youngest paternal aunt and uncle only got to
share one day of that life. Yet he showed the liveliness that seems to
this kin-by-marriage to be the hallmark of the Gates family, and in
particular, this Gates family. I endeavored to write a song about him
upon his death that would not be too morbid, yet express my sorrow at not
getting to see him grow to what he might have been. Below is printed the
lyric to that song:

You were the green on a summer's day, You were the rainbow that made the
rain go away.

Your colors were the special ones, Now the painting will go, The painting
will go undone. I'll create a new color for you -- Kelly Blue, Kelly Blue.

Life is too short, you hear them say, And it seems that the best turn out
that way, They must have been thinking of you, Kelly Blue, Kelly Blue.

You are too beautiful to forget, So with accents of love, tinted with
regret, I'll paint a room in my heart Kelly Blue, Kelly Blue.

Life is too short, you hear them say, And it seems that the best turn out
that way. They must have been thinking of you, Kelly Blue, Kelly Blue.

10 !There were actually two children born by the same name, but the first
died soon after birth, hence "Frank" was not reall y the first-born. Also,
in order for Frank to get into the military early, (he wasn't even 17 yet)
his father signed a form showing the birth date of the 1st F.E. Gates,Jr.
in this way he told the truth, but helped his 6 ft. tall pull one over the
eyes of the war minded gov't in the early days of World War II. (written
by Mike Gates) -------- Frank was a "Ward of the State of Oregon" at the
time he entered the service. He had to get permission from the Court to
enter the Navy. He also had to get permission to get a marriage license
in 1945 because he was only 20 years old. (His wife, Coral, was 16, and
her mother Alma Hereth Hanrahan [later Harland] signed for her.) (This
note provided by Coral-Louise Raymond Gates Williams, 5/27/90) ---------

12 "Doc" was a dentist by trade. He practiced in Michigan City, Indiana from about 1934 thru November 1946, when he moved to Melbourne, Florida with his family and brother Edwin. There he owned/managed "Doc's Bar", located in the old Melbourne Hotel. My father worked with him for many years, in the dental trade and in the bar. I obtained a picture of him from his daughter Francis in 1994. Also, he was probably one of the several children in family group photo passed on by my father to my mother. HOWARD, Dr. Neil Walter "Doc" (I71)
13 "Jasper J. Barnett spent the first twelve years of his life on the home farm in Perry county and during that period attended the district schools, while later he continued his education in the public schools of Drinkle and in Kingston Academy, of Kingston, Ohio. He then began teaching in the public schools and followed that profession for fourteen years, proving his capability as an educator by the clear and ready manner in which he imparted to others the knowledge he had acquired and by the way in which he maintained discipline. On abandoning that profession, he turned his attention to farming. In May 1864, he enlisted in Company I, One Hundred and Fifty-ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, under the command of Captain E. Griffith. Soon afterward Mr. Barnett was commissioned first lieutenant and was ordered to Baltimore, Maryland, where he did garrison duty for one hundred days, at the expiration of which period he received an honorable discharge in September, 1864.
"Returning to Fairfield county, Mr. Barnett engaged in farming and stock raising and also devoted his attention to school teaching for two years. In 1867 he purchased his father's old homestead, thus becoming the owner of two hundred acres of land, to the further development and cultivation of which he devoted his energies with untiring activity until 1882. His labors made his place one of the desirable farms of the county, his enterprise and capable management being manifest in the neat and thrifty appearance of the farm. At length he put aside business cares and in 1882 removed to the village of Amanda, where he established a harness store, but later he disposed of that enterprise and is now (1902) living retired.
"... Mr. Barnett is a stanch advocate of Republican principles, having supported the party his attaining his majority. He also belongs to Tarlton Lodge, No. 218, I. O. O. F., and was once a member of McPherson Post, G. A. R. Since 1849 he has been an acceptable member of the Methodist Episcopal church and has always been loyal to its teachings and active in its work, doing everything in his power to extend the influence and promote the growth of the church." (extract from article in "A Biographical Record of Fairfield County Ohio", S. J. Clarke, 1902)
