Hello Everyone!
I am researching: Orace G. COLLVER, born 16 February 1854 in West Looking Glass, Douglas Co., Oregon. He died in Portland, Mult. Co., Oregon 14, 1939. He made a statement to his heritage: The last name of COLLVER was really from ancestral name of CULVER. Where and how did Orace G. learn this information? He was son of Alfred Bainbridge COLLVER, who was born in Warrensville, Cuyahoga Co,. Ohio and Ruth RICE. Ruth and Alfred were married in Cedar Co., Iowa 13 July, 1845. They came to Oregon in 1851 with four children, and settled on Donation Land Claim #251, Roseburg District. Five more children were born in Oregon, one of which was Orace G. Orace married Margaret J. Barnett 16 October 1881. She died 21 January 1900. Then married Virginia Prentiss Foster 07 February 1901. Virgina died 27 April 1929. Married 3rd wife, Dora B. Thompson 22 July, 1931. He had niece who came to live with them in central Oregon named Ruth. I have further info on Ruth. What am I looking for regarding Orace? Orace was Postmaster in Culver, Oregon and little town named after him. Why did he settle in central Oregon? I want to learn more about his parents, and why they traveled to Oregon. I want to learn more of his parents Alfred B. and Ruth (RICE) COLLVER. If you have any information would you please email me. Thank you, Carroll
