453 WASHINGTON HARTMAN. 
One of the prominent farmers and respected citizens of Thurston county, 
Washington, and a man who through many varied experiences has come 
to the declining days of life with a good competence and well deserves the 
comforts which he now enjoys, is Washington Hartman, who lives on what 
is called the Wells donation claim on McAllister creek. His grandfather was 
David Hartman, who served his country in the war of 1812; his ancestors 
were German. William Hartman, the father of our subject, was born in the 
state of Pennsylvania, July 22, 1807. In 1853 he visited California, being 
at the gold diggings at Angels camp and also taking part in the Frazer river 
excitement. He later settled in Seattle, and owned some very valuable property 
in what is now the best part of the city. He died in 1887 at the age of 
eighty years. His wife's maiden name was Martha Parker, and she passed 
away in Iowa in her fifty-fifth year. They were the parents of eight children, 
of whom David A. and our subject are in Thurston county, one is in Iowa, 
two are in California. These worthy people were strict Methodists of the 
early sect, and the subject of this sketch relates that he was not permitted even 
to whistle on the Lord's day. 
Washington Hartman records his birth as occurring near the town of 
Mansfield, Richland county, Ohio, May 18, 1831. In Ross county of the 
same state he was reared to manhood and gained his education in the public 
schools. He then removed to Iowa, where he owned a farm of three hundred 
and forty acres, eight miles distant from Des Moines on the left bank of the 
river, and on it were three good houses, two large barns, and two hundred and 
forty acres were under cultivation. Mr. Hartman disposed of this property 
in 1866 for twenty-five dollars an acre, and this he considers the mistake of 
his life, as the land is now in the most valuable section of the great agricultural 
state of Iowa. In Morgan county. Missouri, he bought a farm, but sold 
it after six weeks and went on a prospecting trip through Kansas. Returning 
to Iowa and purchasing a farm, he raised one crop on it and sold it; his next 
purchase was five hundred and seventy acres in Crawford county, Missouri, 
which he also farmed one season and sold; he then bought a large number of 
mules and cattle and disposed of them at a profit; on a farm in Reynolds 
county he produced two crops, and, selling out in 1872, came by way of the 
Union Pacific Railroad to San Francisco, where he engaged in farming for 
two years ; he then returned east and brought out his family, having decided 
to make the west his permanent home. He acquired his present farm of one 
hundred and seventy-seven acres in 1879, and here he has built a commodious
residence and all necessary outbuildings and is employed in general farming, 
raising large crops of hay, oats and potatoes. 
In 1861 Mr. Hartman married Miss Annie Baker, a native of Henry 
county, Indiana, and a daughter of Isaac Baker, of that state. To this marriage 
one son was born, William Franklin, October 26, 1862; he is now married 
and lives in a nice residence on the home farm. Mrs. Hartman is a 
member of the Christian church, and he has been identified with the Odd Fellows, 
but of late years has been so distant from the lodge that he has given up 
his membership. He has voted with the Republican party since its organization, 
casting his first vote for John C. Fremont. In all things he is an enterprising 
and industrious citizen and worthy of representation in a history of the 
Puget Sound country.

458 WILLIAM A. PORS, attorney at law, Port Washington ; a native of Hamburg, born Nov. 17, 1827 ; immigrated to the United States in 1849, and settled in Washington Co., where he followed farming one year ; served as clerk in the Register of Deeds' office one year ; he then went to New Hampshire, and commenced the study of law with Stephen Crosby, of Francistown, with whom he remained about one year, then went to Lowell, Mass., and continued his study, with Judge Crosby as preceptor, until December, 1853, at which time, on motion of B. F. Butler, he was admitted to the bar, and soon after returned to Port Washington, and has since been engaged in law practice. He was Draft Commissioner during 1862, and has been District Attorney several terms. He was married, in 1859, to Miss Ida Heinemann, a native of Hanover. They have one child—Emil C, now a practicing lawyer at Oshkosh. PORS, William A. (I2122)
 
459 William Hartman family left Ohio 1846, travelling by steamboat on Ohio River and up Mississippi River to Keokuk, Iowa. From there to Ft. Des Moines, locating and filing on government land, 9 miles NW of Des Moines, bordered by Des Moines River on north and some claims divided by old Daniel Boone Trail. 1846 (source: letter from Ira Hartman)

According to docs from Thurston Co., WA Pioneers before 1870, they left Des Moines Iowa by Mule team in May 1859 (?) Arrival on coast San Francisco, then by boat up to Washington. Very hard to figure out from the entries. Located in Nisqually Valley.

460 William Wightman, of Washtenaw County, Mich., came early in the summer of 1846, and being pleased with the country, authorized James Kneeland, of Milwaukee (a half brother of Mrs. Wightman), to purchase certain property for him. Leaving Michigan the following autumn with his wife and four daughters, in a comfortable covered-wagon drawn by horses, the journey was rendered pleasant by visits to relatives and friends along the route. Arriving at a shanty on Section 24, they purchased a loaf of bread of Huldah Farmer and passed on to the store and residence of their old acquaintance, Jehiel H. Baker.
Visions of the old home rising before Mrs. Wightman in contrast to this new life they were to enter upon, caused her to feel that she could not leave the wagon ; but better judgment prevailing, she determined that as this must be her future home, it should be a happy one. This was in October, and before January Mr. Wightman had prepared the frame for his house, but when everything was ready heavy snows delayed the raising, and a shanty was erected instead. To be once more in their own home, however rude, was happiness indeed, although one side of the store must be parlor while the other was kitchen. After the erection of his frame house, it was opened and kept for ten years as a hotel, and will be remembered as the West Bend House. Mr. Wightman has been prominently identified with the town and county, faithfully serving his constituents at all times when they have called him into public life. He is still living in West Bend, carrying sturdily the weight of over eighty years.

two marriages, one daughter from first marriage - Mrs. George (Jean) Hatchell, Windsor, WI

“I want to bring up my only first cousin - Jeanne Hatchell. The last time I
heard from her she was living in Golden, Colorado. Now she had 8 cheldren. I
haven't heard from her in a long time. I just wonder if she is still alive.
She would be the daughter of my uncle Ranson Campbell. He was the station
master for Grand Trunk Railroad in Berlin, New Hampshire. I died and is
buried in cemetery in Maine, right across the border with New Hampshire. He
had a second wife named Scotty. I believe she has since passed away.

The oldest boy - Geroge was at one time managing the Sugar Bowl in Miami,
Florida. I have a picture of the next to oldest son - Dennis pitching in his
little league game. Anyway when I came back to Kankakee after my stint in
the Navy I tried to keep in contact with these relatives but somehow slipped
by.

I have to admit you have done a masterful job in outlining and detailing our
family. I congratulate you.”
