The reformatting of the name font and census data for this page has been completed. --John M. Gwin, Aug 2011

Wendell and Virginia Small are dear friends from our church. I've started this online page for him, but it is very incomplete. He has much more information that I have not yet seen; nevertheless, I started it recently because I have access to Ancestry.com and can possibly go back even further than he's been able to, thus opening new avenues of discovery regarding his family.  If any readers have more data than is listed here, they are invited to share it with us!

An Outline of the Known Family



23.00--Mr. Small, b. unk.; d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. unk. (nee unk.; b. unk.; d. unk.; bd. unk.); at least one child

24.00--Henry Small, b. unk.; d. unk.; bd. unk.; m. Nancy Mosby (b. unk.; d. unk.; bd. unk.); at least one child

Could the following be the family of our Henry and Nancy? 
I don't think so, personally, since according to the information I have, Wendell's grandparents, Wm. H. Small and Martha Ann Cooley Small, would've only been 13 and 11 years old, respectively, in 1850, and the 1850 census shows the son, William, to be age 26.  But I could've erred somewhere, so I'll post this here until we know for sure.  First, then, is Marsha Rising's post on Genforum.com, followed by that family (to which she refers) in the 1850 census of St. Clair Co., MO.

This POB narrows down the date of the move to Oregon to the years 1851-1857, but my guess is that both these families came out to Oregon on the same wagon train; if I'm right, then we can use the dates 1852-1855, the dates of Nancy's and Malinda's births, above.

This is Wendell's grandfather, b. in Missouri. Speculation arises when I wonder why the move was made to Oregon. Could it have been to avoid the issues of slavery and the Civil War? Look at the dates of birth of the children, all of whom were born in Oregon during or after the war.

Further, though there are two Small families in Cottage Grove in 1860 (see 1860 census above), neither seems to be the family of this William. Our William H. Small would've been 23 years old and MAYBE just married. I checked all 24 pages of the 1860 Cottage Grove/Eugene census, but didn't see him there. I'm also looking for him Missouri, but nothing yet. He could've been on the trail that summer and missed the census.

[OK, according to the 1870 census of Monroeville Twp., Colusa, Colusa Co., CA, just nw of Sacramento--some 300+ miles south of the Eugene area, there is a William Small, age 23 and single, b. MO, a stock raiser, living there. Everything fits for this to be our William, out on his own, working a trade.  Keep in mind, however, that this is only speculation at this point.

Nevertheless, giving even more credibility to this possibility is the fact that in the 1880 census (below), William's daughter Margaret is listed as having been born in California.  If this is he, then, in Monroeville, CA, in 1870, then it is certainly possible that our William, while living and working there, met and married Martha, then moved back to Oregon. If this were the case, they would have great reason to go back to California to visit her parents, and especially to allow her parents to see the birth of their newest grandchild, Margaret.]

This is William H. Small, Wendell's grandfather, born in Missouri, whose parents were born in tennessee and Kentucky, respectively. Perhaps he was named for the popular president, William Henry Harrison. Support in this regard may be his father's name--Henry. Working backward, perhaps the 1870 census will throw on more light.

His DOB is actually 17 Sep 1918, though his age here is listed as 11, giving others (who might not know his actual DOB) reason to ESTIMATE his year of birth as 1919.

We speculate that this is Florence's brother (since Florence's maiden name is Powell)--or half-brother (since he reports his mother's POB as Indiana and she reports hers as Vermont). He and his wife are living next door to Florence.
