Judge Kingsley Partlo Dykeman
Pop-up Pedigree

Note*: King Dykeman moved to Seattle, King County, Washington in 1890. from NewBrunswick, Canada. King worked on the boats to earn money for law schooland became one of the first judge in King Country. Memoirs of my Grandfather Dear King, a question you asked me a few weeks ago reminds me I mustinform you (for your pleasure and that of our children) in regard to thelife and character of our grandfather Nataniel C. Cottle. When I was achild and while grandmother lived they occupied a part of our house. Iwould walk in their den(?) and grandma would ____ pick me up ____ my headagainst the ceiling, give me a cookie and sit me on grandpa's ____ atable where he was most often reading his bible. He would stroke my headand smile and tell me little stories for which he was adept and it was agreat source of pleasure to my little sisters and as I grew there grew inme a love that was never marred by fear. At the age of nine he joinedthe Baptist Church and never ____ back slide (as the saying was) andnever in his life did he fail to testify when that privilege was given heserved as Deacon of a Baptist church sixty years ____ or ____ could.Wasn't nothing but a blinding Blizard kept him from the monthlyconference. A great reserve man who often smiled but seldom ever laughedyet the life of a ____ always let the other fellow laugh and had a habitof closing his mouth firmly when done speaking as at ____ for emphasis. Owing to his father's death and the leaving home of his older and onlybrother Isaac, he had to quit school and went to work at the old farm tohelp support his mother and six sisters, yet he became one of the bestscholars of his day in ____ men came to him for advice on law and ethicsand was often the sole arbiter in many disputes. And do you realizebrother he was in his prime 100 years ago and the family owned all of thefirst wheeled vehicles in ____ county and the old mill stones they turnedby hand to grind the family flour are I presume still in a stone wall(fence) on the old farm. I hope to look them up someday before I pass tothe great unknown. But to return to Grandfather, although an unassumingman in the absence of a practice he would take a text and preach a sermondown in front of the pulpit. He always taught a bible class composed ofmiddle aged men and they would sometimes get so obsessed in their lessonthat the school would close and the people gather for the sermon and thepreacher would be blessings for time and for eternity we humbly begChrist ____ 'redeemer's sake'. In his later years he would often come to____ with bible in hand and say Amanda I am going to be called away totake a rest soon and have to remind you of this' a certain passage ofscriptures beside his general ____ he read the bible through ____ timesand claimed there were two books misplaced and I suppose he was right.He was very ____ and neat in his appearance. On Sabbath (never Sundaywith him) he always wore a silk hat, stand up collar, and a black tie asI can remember he was always called Mr. Cottle or Deacon Cottle and inall his dealing he never misinterpreted or took advantage of any man andalways taught honesty in '____ and died'. One of his mottos was 'Silenceand circumspection' he had a great ____ for ____ and of late years I amreminded of his many sayings. The letter above is from Richie Travis Dykeman to his younger brother,King about his recollections of his grandfather, Nathaniel C. Cottle (N.Cottle, Jr.). Where ever a word couldn't be read or deciphered there isa space. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The accounts below were obtained from newspaper obituaries found in theSeattle Public Library and from the Lake View Cemetery Association, Inc.in Seattle, WA. In April, 1914, there were 1,060 qualified lawyers practicing in KingCounty, Washington. an increase of forty over the previous year. In orderto clear the docket it was determined to increase the departments of theSuperior Court to eleven from June 8th to June 30, 1914. Two outsidejudges were secured to assist the King County Superior Court judges. The nine members of the Superior bench in Seattle are Judges A.W. Frater,Boyd J. Tallman, J. T. Ronald, R. B. Albertson, John S. Jurey, EverettSmith, King Dykeman, Kenneth Mackintosh and Michell Gilliam. A Juvenile Court was talked of for several years before it was actuallyestablished here. In February, 1904, judge Ben D. Lindsey of Denverlectured at the Presbyterian Church on the subject of juvenile courts,many members of the local bench and bar being present. Establishment ofsuch a court here, as a department of the Superior Court, and a detentionhome for juveniles in custody was successfully undertaken by the women'sclubs of the city, and for the first eighteen months of its existencethey paid all the expenses of the probation officers. It was not untilJanuary, 1906, that the court was finally opened by Judge Frater. Anentirely new procedure was put in operation in his courtroom. Formalitywas largely disregarded, in order to quiet the apprehension of the boysand girls and to secure their confidence and co-operation. Judge Fratermade it his practise to give them sound advise rather than sternpunishment for their misdeeds. Comparatively few were sentenced to anypenalty, and nearly all were released on probation or upon theirpromises. The women's clubs and Judge Frater deserve great credit forthe really excellent showing of this court. In March, 1906, there wereforty cases before the court. Not one offender was committed, nearly allwere dismissed on promises and only seven were placed on the probationlist. In November of the same year twenty-seven were before the court atone time, and nearly all were released on probation. A few were sent tothe reformatory and to Mercer Island Detention Home. As early as 1907,the town of Ballard asked for a special and separate Juvenile Court, butits annexation to the city removed this need for such an institution. A new juvenile law became effective in June, 1933. One object of itscreation was the formation of a juvenile and humane emergency fund, intoto which all fines collected under juvenile ordinances should bedeposited for the benefit of neglected and destitute children. Therewere many strict provisions, calculated to prevent delinquency. Duringthe fiscal year 1912-13, 728 children were cared for at the detentionhome, with an average an average daily attendance of fourteen. The totalnumber of delinquents dealt with was 703 boys and 356 girls. Of theaggregate number, 731 were given formal court hearings and either sent toreformatory institutions or released on probation. In twelve cases thedelinquencies were found to be due to divorces or other home tragedies. In April, 1914, Judge A. W. Frater, father of the Juvenile Court ofSeattle, retired and was succeeded by King Dykeman. The former hadaccomplished a great work and one that should serve as a monument to hiskindness and self sacrifice. Judge Dykeman at once became active in amovement to obtain a new juvenile detention home to replace the olddwelling at Ninth Avenue and Jefferson Street, which had been user astemporary quarters, and the promise of an extensive new building, withplaygrounds and many conveniencies for the health and enjoyment ofSeattle's less fortunate boys and girls for 1915. Long on Bench Judge Dykeman, who succeeded Wylie Hemphill as president of the SeattleChamber in January, had been actively interested in civic enterprises andin the work of various charitable organizations since he began thepractice of law in this city in 1903. Because of his death, the Members'Council luncheon meeting of the Chamber of Commerce on Friday, has beenpostponed. Assistant corporation council of Seattle from 1906 to 1911, he wasappointed to the bench of the Superior Court in the latter year. Twoyears later he was elected to the position, serving until 1925. Judge Dykeman's great interest in the problems of young people led to hisbeing given the direction of the Juvenile Court. In this capacity, he iscredited with having built the first complete Juvenile Court plant in theUnited States. His interest in the work continued until his death. He was a former publisher of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Born in New Brunswick, Canada, May 15, 1874, Mr. Dykeman came to Seattlein 1820. In 1903, he graduated from the University of Washington with abachelor of laws degree and began the practice of law here.
