Witness to History

     This is an interesting letter written in 1856 by Reuben Ashford Finnell
from his home in Front Royal, Virginia having witenssed the events during the
preceeding years in Washington Territory. He is writing to his Congressman,
giving his views of the event that took place the year before. Interesting
reading and a glance in to the minds and persons of our  Finnell cousins.
Reuben Ashford Finnell the son of Reuben Ellis and Vienna Russell Finnell.
Reuben born in 1826 in Shenandoah Co, VA and died 1915 at Front Royal,
Warren Co, VA. In the early 1850's he sailed around South America to
Washington / Oregon Territory. He served in the Confederate Militia and later
was a County Judge in Warren Co, VA.

                       Front Royal  July 17th 1856
     Hon C. J. Faulkuer
     Dear Sir
          I was pleased to learn from our delegate from Washington
     Territory, Col J. P. Anderson that your were favorably disposed
     toward the people of Washington and Oregon Territories in the
     controversy which has been forced upon them by the very singular
     course which General Wool has seen fit to adapt. As I have resided
     over two  years in  a part of Washington Territory which has been the
     scene if Indian warfare, Col Anderson seemed to think if I would hold
     a conservation with you it might be of advantage to the cause which he
     is advocating, but I found from the time which I had allotted to my stay
     in Washington and the pressure of business which seemed to be resting
     upon your hands that it would be impossible to have the desired
     interview, I therefore determined on my arrival among my friends [at
     my old home](crossed out) here to embrace the first opportunity to
     write you a brief statement of affairs in Washington Territory as they
     came under my immediate observation
          I shall say but little of Gen. Wool and the tribe of scribblers
     under him, and what I have to say on that point is simply that General
     Wools opinion of the origin of the War was hastily [formed] (crossed
     out) and ineniviusly formed and that a most absent pride of opinion
     about the War. The profits of this trade however, they spend in certain
     rude games of chance and in horse a ring. These are the Indiana sir that
     have brought on the war in Washington and Oregon Territory. The
     whites are charged with taking the Indiana land with marching and
     plundering, but such things have come under my observation. Most of
     the tribes have disposed of large tracts of land by treaty But there in
     not a solitary white American settler to my knowledge in the entire
     territory claimed by the Klichitat and Yackima Indiana. I have never
     heard of one of the Indiana being killed by a white man previous to the
     war nor have they even to my knowledge been  wronged in any way by
     the white man. and I have had as good an opportunity as any other man
     of knowing what I state to be the fact. The peaceful thoroughfare of
     these Indiana in trading to the same country was by my house and the
     neighborhood where I lived was the great trading ground, here they met
     in [July and August] (crossed out) summer by hundred and whilst they
     carried on their trade and  savage commerce they could been upon the
     abundance of wild berries and Salmon which that vicinity afforded. In
     this way I became imedeatley accounted with the Indiana on the Land
     and on both sides of the  Cascade mountains.
          Now whilst I  have shown you that the Indians East of the
     mountains had received no possible determent from the whites, I wish
     to speak of the advantages which they desire through our means It has
     lead them into the decision of all the mis statements and mis
     representations which has followed and further I would say in view of
     the embarrassment which our delegates Gen, Lane and Co. Anderson
     are laboring under growing out of the misrepresentation to which  I
     have referred that it is a pity and great shame if an entire people
     must be crushed and disgraced for the like of bolstering
     up the reputation of one individual whose weakness and derelictions
     may not be set down so much to the disparagement of any reputation
     which he may have acquires in the service of his he my have acquired
     in the service of his country, but rather to the weakness and infirmity
     of age which may be fast pressing am age veteran to the grave.
          Now Sir knowing you from many years by character and being
     aware of the confidence reposed in you by your constituents who are
     also my relatives. School mates, old acquaintance and the dear friends
     of my youth, it is with confidence I make you a judge in this course
     between the people of Washington and Oregon Territories and General
     Wool, and place my self upon the stand as a Material witness. In regain
     to the oath I would say that I am not in the habit of swearing any other
     oaths than legal ones and that I feel it is my duly regard my simple say
     so, as sacred as an oath administrated in the most solemn form
          I have been nearly three years in Washington Territory, and
     resided up to the commencement of the warfare over 23 miles East of
     Ft Steilacoon on the road leading from that place to Ft Walla Walla.
     The tribe living in my Vicinity and which are now hostile were the
     Mirguallies, Pauyalups, White and Green rivers Indians. These were
     small bands numbering about 150 warriors. Their origin was a cross of
     the Klichitat and Paget Sound Indian, and they were governed by petty
     chiefs who acknowledged the superior authority of the chiefs and
     Kamiaken whom govern the more  powerful tribes East of the
     mountains. The Klichitats and Yachimas occupy the country on the
     Yackaima river and its tributaries on the East side of Cascade
     Mountains. These tribes hear the two names I have mentioned but are
     really one tribe speaking one language and acknowledging on great
     chief (has' tie) That chief is Kamiakin and to him  Sir, we must look
     for the causes of the war which is  now raging in Oregon
     and Washington.
          The Klichitats and Yackamas are the most murderous, most war
     like and influential Indian in the two territories. The great influence of
     this people is owing chiefly to three habits, they own great numbers of
     horses and have the carrying trade between the numerous tribes of the
     fishing Indian one Puget Sound and the populous tribes in Eastern
     Oregon, they buy horses of the Cazuse, Flathead and Snake and other
     Indian in the east and sell them on the land for blankets and money and
     also buy and sell their women with the tribes on the Land and have
     thus been able to extend their influence by scattering their blood among
     all the p---- tribes to the
     The first place our government in building the military roads from Ft
     Scitacoona to Ft Walla Walla offered for these Indian an easy outlet
     form the Yockica Co to the sound and wishes before they had to climb
     treatrus trails over frightful precipes and drive their hardened animals
     before then they have now a good wide road and I have heard them
     express their gratification by saying that once they had to walk up hills
     but now they could ride all the way across the  mountains. Again they
     had been greatly benefited in the increased price of their property
     After the Americans Settlers arrived in Puget Sound, their horses
     doubled in value and were in very great demand, They also opened
     with the whites a new  annual very advantages trade and buying of us
     many if the comforts of life which they had never enjoyed before they
     were also employed in many of kinds of work and were promptly paid.
     Luck were the character of complexion of the relations existing between
     the whites and Indian of Washington Territory previous to the
     commencement of the War.
          Now Sir I will speak of the Cause and Commencement of the
     war  The cause of this Oregon War is the same which has ever
     prompted the savage of this continent to oppose the progress of
     civilization. It is nothing but the jealousy of an inferior race against the
     growth and expansion of a superior one that is the sum and substance
     of the matter. Like all  savages they naturally have a horror of
     civilization and a natural love of their own manner of life the least.
     The Klichitat and Yackima Indian brought on this war I have explained
     to you the position they occupy among the tribes of Oregon and of their
     influence shows evident during the summer of 1855 that there was
     some secret movement going on among the Indian. Their conduct was
     singular The Klickilets as formerly had been their custom never come
     over in large bands for  racing and sporting purposes, but the principal
     travelling seems to be in the opposite direction. I noticed that the chiefs
     of the sound country were frequently travelling over the mountains,
     where their objects was evidently for consultation, I will also state that
     the Klickilet and Yachima Indian are connected by marriage with the
     Walla Walla and other tribes south of the Columbia river and have their
     influence in that direction, Subsequent events showed that their was a
     complete combination between the Klickilet Yackimas Wala Wallas,
     Casa Palons, Ispexere and the tribes I have mentioned before as hostile
     and lying between the sound and the mountains and the ball was opened
     in the Klicklat country in a manner which can only be contemplated by
     enlightened minds with the innermost horror. Gold had been discovered
     near Ft Colville and hundreds of Oregon and Washington pioneers were
     on their way, not with arms , but with pick and shovel to the mines.
     Their course lay through the Klickilates country. They went out in July
     and August, but about the  first of September some of the mines
     returned with constructor stating that their comfarming had been basally
     murdered waylaid dogged and shot in the back before they can suspect
     any danger and that they had miraculously  escaped to tell the tale. I
     had an acquaintance Jno P. Lackey that fall in that manner I heard the
     name of several others that fall in like manner and that many
     individuals all over Oregon and Washington name their friends who
     have fallen by the hands of the savage and ruthless assassins It is
     supposed that fifty or sixty American citizens fell in this manner, but
     from the  nature of the circumstances, no one  can ever sum up the
     terrible total, The numbers of victims can so easily be under the
     number named, whilst it may have been much more poraxaphluch
     Dear Sir, was the commencement of the Indian war in Oregon and
     Washington Territories the circumstances which attended the
     commission of these murders and the events which followed show
     conclusively that this was intended to be the commencement of a war of
     extermination upon the Americans, The chiefs were committed in the
     transaction and the Son of nhi was known to be one of the murders, but
     to make the thing more certain Mr Bolen, the Indian agent for the
     Yackima country went to see the chiefs, to see what was going on he
     had no fear for himself for these beings had always professes the
     warmest affection for him but what did they do but defy our
     government by basally assassinating its agent and their friend. Then the
     events which immedidety followed this was the expedition and defeat of
     Maj Haller, with which you are acquainted the regression was made by
     Maj Barns upon the governors of Oregon and Washington territories for
     volunteers The volunteer wee promptly enrolled and these who were
     mustered into the service at Ft Lielaeseen were ordered to proceed The
     command of Capt Maloney of the Regular army to make a junction
     with Maj Rans and the Oregon Volunteers in the Klichital country
     Having the recurrence of the event there had been no hostile
     demonstrations on the west side of the Cascade mountains in the
     vicinity of the Pugent sound settlement  The attention of the people of
     both territories was directed towards the Klickilate and Yackima
     extensively the troops from Lt Cilacoon numbering over two hundred
     had crossed the mountains and reached the head waters of Palches river
     a tributary of the Yackima when Capt Maloney received advice that
     Maj Rnes would not move forward  for a fortnight and that he had
     better fall back to the west side of he mountains
          I had joined the volunteers under Capt G Hays and was with
     Capt Maloney in the expedition We fall back and in three days were
     again in the settlement but imagine our surprise and horror to find here
     in our very homes the torch of war flaming in every direction The
     Indian had plotted well  The Klickitels were to rise the  cry The
     soldiers and volunteers were expected to cross the mountains to
     Chastise then, and whilst the settlements were left defenseless the
     Indian  in the settlement would rise and exterminate  But the
     providence of Jahova intervened in behalf of our infant settlement and
     indicted which was not foreseen we were recalled the  work of death
     and extermination had just commenced
                          3 sheet   July 17th 1856
     The settlement on White river had been attached  Mr King and his
     Family were murdered with the exception of   little boy who was kept
     as a slave Mr Bramcon, his wife and two children fell and poor Mr
     Jones who was lying sick in his bed was murdered there whilst his
     heroic lady fought to the last, I was told that she shot one with the rifle
     and killed two others with an ax, Their children were saved by the
     interposition of a friendly Indian. Col Moses and Jas Miles of the
     volunteers who had returned in advance of us with the express had been
     killed. Mr McAlister and Mrs Connel also had been killed but the day
     of revenge was at hand  we met them and fought the  battle of White
     river The second day after our arrival  in the settlement and Thurs they
     were shocked in a  design which all human probability would have
     been  successful if we had not arrived in the nick of time to check on
     this progress. The Settlement on the east side of  the Sound would have
     been blotted out The friendly  Indians on the Salt Water would have
     joined them  and Olympia with the settlement as far as the Columbus
     River would have been blotted out, and Washington  Territory would
     have been a chance spot upon the map. That such is not the case, we
     owe it as I have told you to the interposition of a Kind Providence.
          It was after the recurrence of these events that General Wool
     appeared upon the scene. The eyes of all Oregon and Washington were
     turned to the old veteran with hope and charming anticipation He was
     asked on his way to Oregon where he would make his head quarters his
     gallant reply went to the heart of every pioneer in that wild frontier
     country He said his head quarters were to be in "in the Saddle". How
     he fulfilled that promise the world had already learned I will not dwell
     much further upon this history it has been sketched by abler hands  I
     refer you particularly to a letter written by Governor Stevens to general
     Wool and I will say as for as my knowledge entails that letter is true in
     its statement of history and is sound in its conclusions
          My main object' honored sir. in addressing you is now
     accomplished I humbly hope which was simply to show that the people
     of Washington and Oregon Territory are not to blame for the existence
     of this war But before I closed I wish to make a few reflection upon the
     names in which the war has been conducted Thus the war is not
     concluded is the fact of General Wool If he had have accepted the
     volunteer cooperation the war by this time would have been concluded
     But until recently the troops under his command have remained inactive
     and he has done every thing in his power to embarrass the operations
     of the volunteers.
          From what I have told you the Klichitots and Yackimas you
     must judge that this can never be regarded as concluded until these two
     tribes are Completely whipped but what is the record  They number 50
     miners killed ________burned  and plundered Cascade City and for all
     this have never received the first stroke of Chastisement. The Oregon
     volunteers fought bravely in Whiteman Valley they gallantly chastised
     their allies the Walla Walla The Caruse and Snake Indian But the
     Klickitats have never yet up to the latest dates of which I have any
     account been defeated in an engagement That retreated from the
     cascades after they had destroyed and plundered the  town and they had
     a slight  brush with the Oregon Volunteers when they were returning
     from their Campaign on Snake river To show what they think of  the
     progress of the war thus far Col Wright proposed not long ago to make
     peace There answer was that they had the best of the fight thus far and
     did not wish for peace. It is even  so  and such are the tenants which
     General Wool receives through his officers in the field on account of
     his inactivity.
          Luck is the haughty attitude of the Indian but how does it seem
     on the other side. I can tell you from personal observation how the
     matter stands in Washington Territory, Cascade City in the Territory
     her story your have heard I spoke of the murders on White river, that
     was in Turen & King County, King County lies destitute this was one
     of the most promising counties in the territory every farm house and
     barn was swept from its lands. That part of Pierce County where I
     reside embracing the Puayalup river country also lies destitute, forming
     almost through out the territory has been suspended and the people are
     still huddled in the towns and forts, they have not raise their head this
     year whilst the six months  volunteers that were called last winter will
     extend during their term of service the provisions now in the County.
     Luck in the state of the farming interest, and the lumber  trade which
     has been heretofore the chief resource of the  country is also from the
     most been suspended Luck being the present prospects you with the
     power of war an enemy has and the horrid scribblings under General
     Wools command you a_ will imagine what are the gloomy foreboding
     of the poor emigrant in Washington and has been allowed to his present
     position by donations of land and promises of  protection form the
     general government. The volunteers of Washington and Oregon as well
     as these settlers who have furnished supplies are now asking of
     necessary through their representives Col Anderson and Gen Lane,
     their just dues in money. I am constant to pay for the
     people of  Washington at last that they will ask Congress this year
     for money and if it is not granted next year they will be constrained to ask
     for bread!
          Now Honored Sir you have my deposition I have spoke facts,
     what I have said I trust you will place to the  credit of the Pioneer of
     Oregon and Washington so again their enemies, As far as I am
     concerned the case is now with the council, hear then Gen Lane and
     Col  Anderson they have the confidence of the people they represent.
          And now Sir Hoping that you may even be the advocate of right
     and the offenses of wrong. I remain you friend and Obe. servant

Necrologies - Obituaries
     WEDEN FINNELL, son of the late Elder, James Finnell, and a native
     of this county, died at the home of his son Orrin, with whom he had
     lived in Kansas since 1892. The remains were brought to this county
     arriving last week on Monday, the interment being in the old Finnell
     [Senour] burying ground on the farm now owned by W. H. Senour
     near Walton. The deceased was about 75 years old and a brother of the
     late Vardiman Finnell of Verona. When the war began between the
     States Mr Finnell was in Missouri, and sympathized with the South,
     while his nearest neighbor was a Union man. Mr Finnell never
     suspected that he entertained other then the kindest feelings for him,
     until the day a squad of Federal soldiers called and arrested him at the
     insistance of his neighbor, who had represented to the Federals that he
     was a rebel that should be put out of the way. Being under arrest,
     Finnell was taken some distance from the house and ordered to advance
     and take his position on a stump from which he was to be shot.
     Reaching the stump from which he was to be shot, he leaped over it
     and ran under fire to a creek which skirted on either side by a dense
     undergrowth which in many places obscured the pools of water. In one
     of these pools, allowing only his nostrils to protrude, he survived.The
     soldiers made a diligent search up and down the creek firing their
     muskets into the larger holes for some time but without effect. The
     search was abandoned and he  joined the noted Quantrill band and
     remained there till the war's end.

          Even the Smallest Clue

          Never overlook even the smallest clue when collecting material
     on the family history. The following is a birth announcement found in
     some of my Finnell Family papers.

     Addressed to Mrs T. J. FINNELL, she is Malinda Anne Wolfe, the
     wife of Thomas Jefferson FINNELL. Their daughter Mary Rebecca
     FINNELL who married 21 Jan 1904 to Jacob Charles Marshall and in
     1915 lived in Minneota, Lyon Co, MN. Their son born 26 Mar 1915
     was Joseph Albert Marshall. A small postcard that many of us would
     tend to overlook when searching for family data. Don't overlook
     anything. If in question take it or make a copy and review it later.

          From the book The Show Business No Body
     Knows; by Earl Wilson, 1971 page 404.
          "There was a fat, funny, middle-aged Stripper named Carrie
     Finnell who, on behalf of America offered a special nude art form to
     connoisseurs. She was  a "Tassel-tosser." She wore tassels on her
     breasts. By careful study she had learned over the years to make her
     breasts rotate either clockwise, counter-clockwise, or both.  Carrie
     Finnell appeared in some New York Cafe's and in a Broadway show."
          The New York Times for Saturday 16 Nov 1963.
     Carrie Finnell Morris, one of the  Country's widely known burlesque
     performers, died yesterday at her home near here. She was 70 years
     old. Mrs Morris who performed under her maiden name, was active
     until several weeks ago. Her last professional performace was at the
     Galaxie Club in New Port, KY. Her husband, Thomas J. Morris died
     two weeks ago.
          In the early days of Burlesque Miss Finnell was known as "the
     girl with the Million doller legs" stemming from her insuring them for
     $1 million with Lloyds of London.
          But, by the time Broadway theatregoers beheld her in Mike
     Todds musical Star and Garter in 1942, she had grown
     considerably stouter and had become accomplished in the muscle-control
     of her bosoms.
          She played night clubs throughout the country. On one occasion,
     Miss Finnell observed: "I've never had any objections to my act
     because its done for fun. I don't try to put any sex into it."
