  • Notes 
    • Clara Carroll lived in Dayville, Oregon, at the time of her father's death in 1916, and in Carlton, OR in 1933 when her sister, May, died, and in 1940 when her sister, Jessie, died.
      ------
      [Mrs. Ken (Vicky) Doggett of Oregon wrote in Nov. 1972:] "My grandmother died at the age of 88 in 1955... My father always told me that Clara came to Oregon from Illinois where she had been teaching school. He says she left Illinois because of a relationship with a preacher there which ended unhappily. Perhaps the reason for her coming to Oregon was because of cousins here. They must have been Ed's family.

      "Clara and William Carroll never had children of their own. But in 1926 they were living on Panther Creek in Yamhill County, Oregon, where Clara taught grade school. My father was nine years old and his father had been killed in an accident in Astoria a few years earlier. He contracted TB and he was sent to an orphanage. But he left there, wound up walking along Panther Creek, and Bill Carroll saw him and asked him if he wanted to help him do some work. My father did, and he stayed there from that day through high school. My father left for college in 1935. William died early in 1939, and my parents married in August of that year, living with Clara on her farm for a few months. My parents always treated Clara as if she were my father's mother, and she was always 'Grandma Carroll' to us. She introduced my dad to everyone as her boy. She was always with us when my mother was having a baby, on holidays, etc., and we saw a lot of her. I was in the eighth grade when she died, and since neither of my dad's parents were alive at the time of my folk's marriage, we all thought of her and treated her like she was his real mother. She was very good with children, and taught us many things before we started grade school....

      "In regard to Boring, Oregon, my father writes that Boring (east of Gresham) was named afterEd Boring (Clara's uncle). He lost his left arm to the shoulder -- being attacked by a black bear while cutting wood on his homestead near what is now Boring. He finally fended off the beast with his ax and a good right arm."
