Henry Hartsock in PA

Malcolm James WEATHERBIE

Believe that Malcolm James Weatherbie is also Malcolm James Wetherby born in PEI for the following reasons:
1) census birth year of 1862 (for the former) agrees with that for Malcolm James Wetherby b. 29-Nov-1861
2) His son William could be named after his father, William Wetherby or his brother William Henry Wetherby.
3) His son George David could be named after his brother George David Wetherby.
4) Mary Ann Wetherby married John Docherty. Malcolm James Weatherbie married Mary Docherty.
5) Item 115 in the Belfast book lists the following info:

William Wetherby
Flora Buchanan - d of Malcolm, Point Prim

(1) Mary Ann - To John Docherty - New Haven
(2) John Thomas
(3) Malcolm James - Washington Ter. <----<<< May be all the proof required
(4) Wm Henry
(5) George David
(6) Sarah - To Ronald MacLellan, Glace Bay
(7) Tina - To Murdoch Buchanan

Need to get his nauralization papers in WA in 1890.

Alternate name: Mary Dockerty obtained from "memory"

Mary Docherty is believed/suspected to be a descendant of Donald Docherty and Marion Buchanan. Donald Docherty arrived in Orwell Bay, Prince Edward Island on August 7, 1803 on the ship "Polly".

See PEI Research Data to explore family connections.
Also see The Polly of 1803
and Passenger List Reconstruction for the "Polly", 1803

"Captain [Donald] Docherty was a son of Angus and Catherine (McLeod) Docherty, the former of whom was born in Portree. Scotland, and at the age of nine years came to Prince Edward Island on the ship "Polly," accompanying his parents, Donald and Ann (Stewart) Docherty. Catherine McLeod was also a native of Portree, Scotland, and was descended of Lord McLeod, of Portree. She was a daughter of Malcolm and Effie (Mc Donald) McLeod, the latter being of the Glengarry McDonalds."

Odochardy - MacQueen notes that the surname became Dockerty

Urban Easter HICKS


HICKS, Urban E.
Born in Boone County, Missouri, May 14, 1828; served five years apprenticeship at the printers' trade in Paris, Monroe County, and Hannibal, on the Mississippi river. Married Miss Eliza Jane Leedom, in 1850 in Schuyler County; went to St. Louis, and in the spring of 1851 set out for Oregon, overland. Settled at the mouth of the Cowlitz river, taught school, and in 1852, came to Portland; worked a short time at this trade; located on a claim three miles east of East Portland; moved to Salt Creek, Polk County, and from there to Puget Sound, in 1853, where his wife died, leaving one son, Dr. Frank P., of Astoria. Married Miss India Ann Hartsock in 1855, by whom he has one son living -- G. Gwin. Took part in the Indian war of 1855-6, going out as first lieutenant and afterwards promoted to captain; was assessor and county clerk of Thurston County, and assistant clerk of the first Territorial Council of Washington Territory; was at different times elected by the legislature, Territorial Librarian, Territorial Auditor, and Quartermaster General; was also deputy U.S. Marshal. Mr. Hicks has had a varied experience in the newspaper business, having, in 1861-62, published the Vancouver Telegraph; in 1864-65, published the Washington Democrat at Olympia; moved his plant to Salem, Oregon and in connection with A. Noltoner and C.C. Bellinger, in 1865-66, published the Democratic Review; went to Portland and was city editor of the Daily Oregon Herald; started the East Portland Era in 1871, and in 1874, was engaged as editor of the Vancouver Register. He now resides in Portland.


In 1851 the City of Portland was incorporated and the functions of the corporation began April 6. The first city charter went into effect and a mayor, Hugh D. O'Bryant, a treasurer, marshal, and five councilmen took office. At the first city election 222 votes were cast. The organization of a new city government was a task and there were many "trial and error" efforts made.

The first Public School was opened by Rev. Horace Lyman in a public hall built in 1849 by William King and Stephen Coffin on First Street between Pine and Oak. The building cost $2250. The first frame house was built by Captain Nathaniel Crosby from lumber brought from the State of Maine around the Horn. It was located at Front and Washington.

Is it any wonder that the City of Portland had a big celebration on the Fourth of July? It is the first record of such a celebration, but the citizens had a great deal to celebrate. The Oregon Territory had become a possession of the United States; that alone was much to be thankful for as the Oregon Territory was the only American territory which was acquired by priority of discovery, exploration and settlement, the only possession acquired without bloodshed or cash purchase. Is it any wonder that this community is a peaceful place to live? They could celebrate too that "that spot on the Willamette, 12 miles below Oregon City" had become an incorporated city.

That people and money were coming into the community and the community was growing by leaps and bounds. Portland now had a post office. Thomas Smith was the Postmaster, having taken office November 8, 1849. The office was in a small log cabin at Front and Washington Streets. The mail had begun to arrive in U.S. postal sacks. James B Stephens' land claim was bought for $200 and East Portland was laid out. His claim was from East Glisan to Hawthorne and from the river to East First Street. Urban East Hicks, a printer, located a claim on the north side of Mt. Tabor where he taught school.
Abraham Lincoln had been offered the Governorship of the Oregon Territory, and as Lincoln had shown much interest in the western country, the belief is that he would have accepted, had it not been that Mrs. Lincoln objected... p 13
