[3306] Aaron, his mother Clarissa Root Phelps, and his wife Sarah Adams Phelps were founders of the religious community established at Galesburg, Illinois.

In 1870, the census reports the value of his real estate as $15,000, and his personal effects as $500.

-- "History of Knox County"

The "Phelps Family in America" gives his name as "Roger." His grandson, Harold "Bart" Bartle Phelps, penciled this out and inserted "Ronald". Bart also corrected Ronald's birth year from 1812 to 1819. The book also gives his death at Wataga, Illinois, which Bart crossed out, but did not correct.

"Mr. Phelps was born in Westfield, Mass., September 8, 1819. He came, with his mother and two sisters, to Galesburg in 1836. They were among a group of 25 initial settlers." According to the Knox College history, "On June 2, the first colonists arrived in a wagon train and settled temporarily at Log City [near current Lake Storey], three miles northwest of the present site of Galesburg." They later founded the pioneer First Church of Christ.

"At the time of Mr. Phelps' arrival in Illinois, the amount of his worldly possessions at that time was enough to buy a box stove and a cow, valued at $30. The eldest daughter [Seraphina Princess Phelps] became Mrs. G. Avery, of Galesburg, and the youngest [Sybelana Phelps] the wife of B. Killbourn, of Wisconsin. The mother died at Galesburg, November 29, 1855. The father, Aaron Noble Phelps, had died previous to the family's moving west, at Westfield, Mass., in March 1830. He and his wife (Miss Clarissa Root) were married in 1814. Their only son, A. N. Phelps and Mrs. Sarah J. Adams were married March 29, 1847, and moved to their present home in 1856, which has since taken the premiums already mentioned." ("History of Knox County," p. 489)

Galesburg was home to the first anti-slavery society in state of Illinois founded in 1837, and was a stop on the underground railroad. Railroads play a key role in Galesburg -- the first railroad came to Galesburg in 1854.

The Family Farm in Knoxville, Illinois

"Section 8 also includes the premium farm owned by A. N. Phelps, Esq., and contains 200 acres without a foot of waste land. This farm was granted the first premium by the Illinois State Agricultural Society in 1868, and again in 1870. It had been awarded the first premium by the Knox County Agricultural Society previously for five successive years. [The "premium" was a silver-plated coffee service, described below.]

"As an indication that Sparta [Township -- later Knox County -- ] is a rich agricultural locality, capable of producing a great quantity as well as a great variety of crops and having in it many enterprising stock-raisers, besides being well watered by natural streams and springs, may be noted the fact that A. N. Phelps' two-hundred acre farm now owned by William Robson on Section 8, took three first prizes from the State Agricultural Society." (p. 836)

-- "History of Knox County"

"The canal around the rapids at Louisville had just been com­pleted, so they were able to get by where formerly travellers by steamboat had been transferred to another vessel. Between Louisville and the Mississippi lay the bottom lands of Egyptian Illinois with their dreary water-logged deadly towns, Shawnee­town, Ft. Massac, Golconda, lawless, disorderly, and inhospitable, hardly safe for such unworldly pilgrims to stop at. In caves along the river lurked bands of pirates who robbed and murdered de­fenseless travellers by water."

In the Mississippi there was constant delay. Even experienced river pilots are often fooled by this treacherous stream. The pro­peller refused to work. Parts of it continually dropped off into the river, and Noble Phelps acquired such experience in diving that when Captain Smith lost his watch over the side, he went in and recovered that also. At St. Louis they refused an offer of $1000 for their boat; it would have been wiser to have accepted. Slowly they worked north while the sick lay in their bunks and longed for land."

--"They Broke the Prairie: Being some Account of the Settlement of the Upper Mississippi Valley by Religious and Educational Pioneers, Told in Terms of One City, Galesburg, and of One College, Knox." Published 1937 C. Scribner's Sons. 451 pp

The 1850 Census shows Ron Phelps, age 31, residing with Sarah J. age 27, and Alfred A, age 1.
The "History of Knox County" was published in about 1870, so by this time Ronald was no longer farming, as the history indicates William Robson now owned that land. His name is given as "Ron," and his occupation is carpenter.

"Noble Phelps, as he grew to mature manhood, acquired large landed interests and developed them so skillfully, scientifically and successfully that his extensive farm, a few miles north of Galesburg, successively took the first prize as being the most highly cultivated and perfectly kept farm in Knox County, and in 1869 he had the satisfaction of owning the State Premium Farm of Illinois."

-- History of Knox College 1837-1912 By Martha Farnham Webster. Galesburg, Ill, Wagoner Printing Company 1912 p. 36-37

About The Phelps Family Silver Coffee Service

For many years, it graced the top of the buffet in my grandmother's formal dining room, usually wrapped in plastic to ward off tarnish. The center piece of the collection was the intricately engraved coffee server with the delicate spout. It had been won as a prize, I was told. As a child, I could only stare curiously and wonder about the shiny pot with the elephant-ear handles.

When first Grandpa and then Grandma Phelps passed on, the silver service was passed to me by my father. Up close, I finally read the engraving: "Table Sett Awarded by the Illinois State Agricultural Society to Mrs. A. N. Phelps 1871."

"A. N. Phelps?" I wondered. A quick check of my family history files turned up Roger Aaron Noble Phelps, of Wataga, Knox County, Illinois, my fourth great-grandfather, and his wife, Sarah Jerusha Adams of Painesville, Ohio. He was born in 1819 and they were married in 1847, so we can assume Sarah was at least 44 years old at the time she won this prize. A continuing puzzle is why a prize for the farm was apparently given at least in name to Thadeus' wife.

About the Pieces Themselves

The pieces appear to be stamped by two different manufacturers. The fact that the pieces were given as prizes and are silver plated suggests to me that the pieces may have been manufactured in quantity. The engraving is date 1871. The pieces are stamped on the bottom 1881, which refers to the style. The two stamps are:

"Quadruple Plate Wilcox Silver Plate Co. 1881 W" encircling crossed hammers

"New Haven Conn. Rogers Smith & Co. 1881"

The pieces have been appraised as being "Egyptian Revival" style.

According to the "History of Knox County (p. 489)," the farm "had been awarded the first premium by the Knox County Agricultural Society previously for five successive years."

The coffee service has seven pieces. Each is silver-plated; the base metal appears to be nickel and lead, as it is visible on a couple of pieces where the silver plate has worn away. Each piece is engraved with a vine or ivy motif. The tops of the handles and legs are decorated with what appears to be an Indian-head. The pieces are:

A large bowl 8" high and 10" across. This bowl is different from the others in that there is no vine design on the bowl, and the lid is engraved with clusters of leaves. The side of the bowl has what appears to be a holder for the lid.

A sugar bowl, 4 1/2" by 7"

The coffee pot, 15" tall, 11 1/2" across, with a spigot and kerosene warmer

A creamer, 4 1/2" by 7", with a hinged lid

A small bowl, 6" tall and 5" across, with a lid and handles

A matching small bowl 6" tall and 5" across

A medium bowl 7" high and 9" across, with a lid and handles

The Next Part of the Story

While these are the facts about the service, there is an interesting story behind them and how they survived through the generations of our family.

During World War II, many Californians feared they would be invaded by the Japanese. This fear was so strong within our family that they buried the table set at their cabin in the mountains outside Los Angeles. They remained hidden there for a number of years until after the war, around 1953. My parents were visiting my father's Aunt Helen. A single piece of the silver service was in the house. My mother admired the piece, and Aunt Helen told of the remaining pieces were buried in the Los Angeles forest. She told Annabeth that they ought to be hers now.

My mother passed on this story to her mother-in-law, Betty Phelps. The next year, as my parents prepared to visit Aunt Helen again, Betty asked Annabeth to please do her a favor and pick up a box that Aunt Helen wanted Betty to have. The box contained the silver service. Thus it remained in my grandparent's home for the next 40 years, until they both passed away and my father gave it to me.

[284] "The Phelps Family in America" gives his name as "Thomas." Harold B. Phelps Sr. crossed this out and wrote in "Thaddeus." However, Thadeus' printed wedding invitation gives the spelling of "Thadeus" with a single "d", as does his death certificate. We have deferred to the printed wedding announcement's spelling.

Based on Thadeus Phelps' death certificate, he was living with his daughter Helen at his death in 1932 at 1133 Melrose Ave., Glendale, Los Angeles County, California. Anne C. Phelps told Annabeth Beasley Phelps that Helen lived with a fellow named Myron who worked as a carpenter for RKO Studios, but she never married.

His death certificate reveals that he was in California "33 years" at his death in 1932. However, according to family records, Thadeus left Peoria, Illinois in 1897 and arrived with his family in San Diego later that year. There was, according to his son Harold B. Phelps Sr., a local depression in the Los Angeles area at the time. The family moved several times, to Pasadena, Altadena, Los Angeles, and Glendale. There is also a family photograph of his children from a studio in Peoria, Illinois. If we can guess the children's age, the youngest, Harold, appears to be around 5 years old. That would date the photograph to early 1889.

[275] His occupation in the 1880 Census, where he is living with his brother Alfred, is Telegraph Operator.

In the 1910 census, the family is living in Lincoln City, Nebraska. They are renting a home. Ernest occupation is "Accounting Adjustor, General."

In the 1920 and 1930 censuses, Ernest is living in the National Soldier's Home in Malibu Township, Los Angeles, California. He is widowed and is shown as a veteran of the Spanish-American War.

[10386] In the 1870 census, his name is spelled Fredrick. Later census spell the name Frederick. According to the 1920 census, Fred and Amanda had 7 roomers. In the 1930 census, they are shown to own a home worth $15,000 and had four roomers.

[4527] Mr. Phelps left his father's house at the age of 13 years. He owned and edited (before his majority) in partnership with George D. Prentice, (afterward of the Louisville Courier), the New England Weekly Review, published at Hartford. In 1827 he began the manufacture of glass in Dundaff, Penn., and became acquainted with the coal fields of the Lackawanna Valley, in which he was afterwards so closely and profitably connected.

Later he became connected with his cousin, Amos R. Eno, as large wholesale merchants in New York City, under the firm name of Eno & Phelps, which firm was continued for ten years, when they dissolved. He continued in the mercantile business, and operated largely in real estate, with great boldness and success.

Before he was 40 years old he had built a splendid block on the site of old Grace Church, and another on the site of the Park Theatre. All these operations were entered into by his old partner, Mr. Eno, who finished by building the Fifth Avenue Hotel. As a director of the Erie railroad he received the thanks of the city council by a joint resolution of both branches, and was for a long time prominently identified with the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western R. R. Co. He was president, resigning in 1853, but remaining in the board till 1863.

He was one of the first to use freestone in the architecture of New York City. He was long connected with the direction of the Mercantile, Second National and City Banks, the Camden & Amboy R. R. Co., the Manhattan Gas Light Co., and Bleecker Street Savings Institute, also with many other public and private trusts, which show the high esteem in which he was held by his fellow citizens, while his will contained bequests to many educational and charitable institutions. He died in New York City, 12 May, 1869, and was buried in Simsbury, Connecticut.

For some years the face of William Walter Phelps has been gradually becoming more and more familiar to the readers of the illustrated weekly press. In no way has he made so much noise in the world as by his bangs which the caricaturists have made their own. The gradual growth of a public man into the favor of the caricaturists and his consequent presentation to the great reading public is one of the most interesting things in pictorial journalism.

There is no more interesting figure in the house of congress than the millionaire representative from New Jersey, William Walter Phelps, who, like many other men of wealth, finds in the discussion of public questions of a diversion more agreeable than is furnished by their private affairs. Phelps, who inherited wealth, has in his time been lawyer, railway promoter, diplomat, politician and congressman. He likes a stirring occupation such as the game of politics affords, and he once refused a judgeship tendered by Governor Fenton, of New Jersey, because he did not want to confine his sphere to the business of untangling legal intricacies. In 1881 he was appointed minister to Austria and accepted.

Like all public men, Phelps is better known by certain peculiarities than anything else. The wits and paragraphers have had so much to say abou this "bangs" that they have become as famous as Ben Butler's drooping eyelid, Luke Poland's silver-buttoned coat, or Tom Ochiltree's cross-eyes. This mild affectation, together with a certain softness in speech, invariably impresses a stranger with the idea that Phelps is "putting it on." The idea is an incorrect one. Phelps combs his hair over his forehead to conceal the scantiness of his locks, though this device does not serve to hide the enlarging bald spot on the crown of his head. What is regarded as affectation in his speech is really natural, and his addresses are polished, shrewd and sound. He can see as far into a mill-stone as anybody, and he enjoys the lively skirmishes which congressional discussions afford. When "Jim" Belford, who gloried in the title, "red-headed rooster of the Rockies," was representing Colorado in congress, he had a pick at Phelps and made the famous declaration that" no man who banged his hair could run the republican party." However, Belford is now in obscurity while Phelps is in the president-making business.

Phelps dislikes the routine work of politics, and has a man employed by the year to keep him posted on all political changes. He uses this man's information as a sort of animated reference book, and does not bother his own memory for anything of this nature. In the political maneuvering on the floor of the house, Phelp's attitude is significant, owing to the fact that he is regarded as the close personal friend of James G. Blaine. Phelps is supposed to look after Blaines's interests in the house, while Frank Hiscock does the same in the senate. It is not a violent presumption to assume that Mr. Phelps would receive distinguished honors should Mr. Blaine have the opportunity to confer them.

Phelps makes his home in Englewood, New Jersey, and his wealth is reported as fabulous.

excerpts from A History of Teaneck -- 1895 - 1995
SOURCE: The Record, Friday, October 20, 1995

The largest estate built in Teaneck belonged to William Walter Phelps, the son of a wealthy railroad magnate and New York City mercantilist. In1865, Phelps arrived in Teaneck and enlarged an old farmhouse into a spectacular Victorian mansion on the site of the present municipal government complex. Phelps' Englewood Farm eventually encompassed nearly2,000 acres of landscaped property within the central part of Teaneck. Hence, subsequent development and house construction was along the perimeters of the township, the central part being a lovely park-like tract crisscrossed by picturesque roads and trails. ... Residential development began in earnest after the opening of the Phelps Estate in1927. The completion of the George Washington Bridge in 1931 and its connection to Teaneck via State Highway Route 4 brought hundreds of curious and eager new-home buyers. The population increased 300 percent between 1920 and 1930, from 4,192 to 16,513.

William Walter Phelps: Man of Distinction

From "The Suburbanite," Oct 14, 1981, pp. 1, 10. (This article was published on The Teaneck [New Jersey] http://www.teaneck.org/virtualvillage/parks/phelps/PhelpsBio.html "Virtual Village" web site.)

By Tricia Duffy
Staff Writer

William Walter Phelps, the son of a successful New York City merchant and financier, was born in Dundaff, Pa. on Aug. 24, 1839. Several decades later, at the height of a successful banking career in Manhattan, he made the decision to "go West" and settled in the thriving hamlet of Teaneck.

Young Phelps' first school experience was at Mount Washington Institute in New York. He was described by contemporaries as a round-faced, rosy-cheeked boy, with sparkling dark eyes; active though not physically strong. Phelps then attended private school at Golden Hill near Bridgeport, Conn., where his academic advancement was so rapid that he was fully prepared for college at the age of 15.

He graduated from Yale University in 1860 with high honors and toured Europe extensively before receiving his degree from Columbia College Law School, where he was awarded the valedictory appointment of his class. Phelps married Ellen Maria Sheffield of New Haven, Conn. in 1861.

Following his family career in banking and industry, Phelps served as a director for the National City Bank, the Second National Bank of New York, the United States Trust Co., the Farmer's Loan & Trust Co. and nine railroad firms.

After the birth of his two sons, he bought a summer home in Bergen County an old-fashioned Dutch farmhouse on the "Teaneck Ridge," an area of Teaneck now adjacent to Route 4 that had been the Garret-Brinkerhoff House in Revolutionary days.

Phelps extensively renovated the old homestead, converting it into one of the most beautiful and celebrated mansions of its time. The Phelps family made this their permanent residence and the youngest child, Marion, was born in the house.

Congressman

Combining eloquence with an interest in politics, Phelps, a Republican sought and won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives at the age of 34. A renowned journalist of the day described William Walter Phelps upon his first day in Congress thusly:

"Mr. Phelps is just five feet nine-and-a-half inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He is lithe of limb and very active. He walks with a live, springy step. His face is refined and handsome, with a wide grasping, intellectual forehead and we think he has the finest eyes of any man in Congress. Mr. Phelps' manner is simple, gracious and winning and in pleasing harmony with his thoughts, and he never utters a platitude. Patient, industrious and resigned, he is a model of the highest type of culture."

During his first term in Congress, Phelps was considered by his colleagues to be a serious, well-versed and mature public servant-a successful young lawyer, ambitious, with money and energy who was expected to make his mark on politics and statesmanship.

After his term, Phelps returned in 1875 to his Teaneck home, where he spent hour upon hour planning the improvements to the homestead and looking for additional land investments nearby. In the next year, he embarked upon a European tour, partly to regain his health which had suffered from a bout of typhoid fever. While abroad, Phelps investigated institutions of learning and art in England, France and Germany, and enjoyed the society of scholars, authors and scientists.

Arborculturist

Returning to the United, states, Phelps spent most of his time resting and working on his most important hobby-his estate. His great passion was trees and the woods; he was a devotee of arboriculture. Between 1875 and 1880 Phelps was responsible for planting and seeing to maturity approximately 600,000 trees of numerous varieties.

In 1880 Phelps was tapped to manage the Republican Presidential campaign but he was unable to complete the assignment because of feeble health. Special honors awaited him, however, and in 1881 President John A. Garfield named Phelps minister to Austria-Hungary, but he held this post for only a few months, resigning after Garfield was assassinated. [It was apparently while serving in Austria-Hungary that William W. Phelps traveled to Vevey, Switzerland, where he commissioned a memorial to his ancestor John Phelps, clerk of the court that condemned Charles I.]

Still active in politics, Phelps was re-elected to Congress in 1883 and again in 1885.

Art Collector

In 1886 the Phelps mansion was completed. At Christmas time the family held a glorious celebration with people from all over the country viewing the mansion for the first time. Phelps' favorite room was a gallery which he had designed himself to hold his priceless collection of art treasures from the ends of the earth.

It was nearly midnight on the first day of April 1888 when Phelps, returning to his apartments in Washington after an evening with friends, found on the table in his bedroom two telegrams which told him that his mansion in Teaneck, where his family then was, had been totally destroyed by fire, with a loss of nearly all its valuable contents. He disturbed no one upon receiving this startling news, but very early in the morning awakened his secretary, told him what had happened, and said that he was going to take an immediate train for New York. He left on the train without once alluding to the great calamity.

The mansion, once the most beautiful in the area, became known as "Phelps' Ruin" and local residents picnicked near the destroyed home - marveling at what it once had been. Phelps immediately began renovation of the house.

German Ambassador

On Oct. 11, 1889 William Phelps was presented to the German Empress at a gala performance at the Royal Opera House, given in honor of the Czar of Russia. Phelps was appointed Minister to Germany, remaining in the post for one year until a case of homesickness prompted his request for a short leave of absence. He sailed for America in September of 1890.

In his diary Phelps wrote, "I have come home to rest and enjoy myself. I intend to spend my vacation upon my Teaneck farm. I feel as if I were already a Jersey farmer again. See, there is one of my farm wagons on the pier. ready to take off my luggage and those lusty-looking fellows have come down fresh from Teaneck to give me an early welcome. I expect to live among the trees until I get rested, and then hunt up my friends to see that they have not forgotten me. No Politics this time, only that I shall vote the Republican ticket in Bergen County at the coming election, and soon after return to my official duties at Berlin."

Phelps returned to Germany a year later, remaining until January 1893 when his health began to suffer from the climate and he traveled south through Spain, Morocco, Tunis, Algiers and Italy.

State Judge

While Phelps was vacationing, Governor Werts of New Jersey appointed him judge of the state Court of Errors and Appeals. Turning over the affairs of the legislation to his success, Phelps again returned to the United States to be sworn into his judicial role on June 20, 1893.

In February of 1894, Phelps' throat began to trouble him seriously, and the illness confined him to his home for days. He continued to try to keep up with his work and in fact was present until the adjournment of the term. A few days later he traveled to the Hygeia Hotel at Old Point Comfort in Virginia, a resort that in the past had been a place of rest for him.

Here Phelps became withdrawn and quiet, an attitude brought on by his physical inability to converse. The last entry in his dairy is dated April 10, 1894. Phelps moved himself to Hot Springs, W. Va., where he enjoyed a temporary return of strength. Finding no lasting improvement in his health in Hot Springs, Phelps returned to his home in Teaneck on May 18.

By May 31 he was bedridden, and in June he lapsed into a coma. He died June 17, 1894.

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Teaneck and Englewood to honor his funeral procession. The trees he had planted himself lined the path of this final journey.

Upon his burial the New York Tribune wrote: "He possessed a rich store of affection and sympathy on which all who knew him drew at will, with full assurance that their drafts would never be dishonored. Not on friends alone, but wherever he detected the need of assistance or of consolation, he bestowed the best gift in his keeping. He won in life the only reward he wanted, but the tribute of tears which would have grieved him must follow him to the grave."

At the time of his death William Walter Phelps owned half of what is presently Teaneck. His estate was left equally to his widow and three children. His youngest son, Sheffield, died on December 9, 1902 in Aiken, SC. Mrs. Phelps died in 1920 and Marion Phelps in 1923. John Jay, William's eldest son, lived until 1948, when he died at the age of 87.

[3737] Charlemagne, Emperor Of The Holy Roman Empire, King of the Franks was king of the Franks from AD 768 to 814 and 'Emperor of the Romans' from 800 to 814. He became a key figure in the development of western Europe's medieval civilization. By his almost constant military campaigns, Charlemagne created a vast empire in the West which included much of the western part of the old Roman Empire as well as some new territory. He was the first Germanic ruler to assume the title of emperor, and the 'empire' he revived lasted in one form or another for a thousand years. Culturally and politically, he left his mark on the newly rising civilization of the West. Probably no ruler of the early Middle Ages better deserved the title of 'The Great.'

Charlemagne was the son of Pepin the Short, and the grandson of Charles Martel. From 768 to 771, Charlemagne shared Pepin's kingdom with his brother, Carloman. When Carloman died, Charlemagne became sole ruler. He took up with energy the work begun by his father and grandfather. His first step was to repress his hostile neighbors. Charlemagne gained wide acclaim for his outstanding military ability, persistence, and success. He waged more than 50 campaigns against neighboring Germanic peoples on all sides, and against the Avars, Slavs, Byzantines, and Moors.

Charlemagne's first great war was against the Lombards, a Germanic people who had invaded Italy in the late 500's. They had been a source of trouble to the popes ever since. In conquering them, Charlemagne followed Pepin's policy of friendship and cooperation with the Roman Catholic Church. This also served Charlemagne's own interests, because he became ruler of the Lombard kingdom in Italy.

The long Saxon war was the most important of Charlemagne's military ventures. The Saxons, who held the whole northwestern part of Germany, were pagans. Their defeat after 30 years of war prepared the way for the religious conversion and civilization of Germany.

By means of other wars, Charlemagne put down a rebellion in Aquitaine, added Bavaria to his kingdom, and established several border states to protect his outlying conquests. In eastern Europe, he defeated the Slavs and Avars and made possible eastward migration by the Germans.

Charlemagne had built a vast and sprawling state that shared borders with such different peoples as the Slavs, Byzantines, and Moslems. He defended the Roman Catholic Church and constantly extended its power. He was far more powerful than the imperial successors of Constantine, the first Christian emperor in the West, and he ruled a much more extensive area. Because of his great holdings, he decided to revive the Roman Empire, but as a new empire that was European and Christian in Character. The relations of the popes with the Byzantine, or Eastern Roman, emperors in Canstantinople had been breaking down since the middle 700's. An alliance between the Roman Catholic Church and the Franks, accomplished by proclaiming Charlemagne emperor, made good sense. Pope Leo III placed the imperial crown on Charlemagne's head on Christmas Day, 800. The most important effect of this act was that it revived the idea of empire in the West, an idea which caused both harm and good in succeeding centuries.

Einhard, Charlemagne's secretary and friend, described the emperor as large and strong of body, fond of active exercise, genial but dignified, and sensible and moderate in his way of life. Charlemagne clearly recognized his duties and responsibilities, and was a tireless worker. He could not reverse the long trend toward decentralized government. But he could and did control the power of the nobles and maintain a considerable degree of law and order in a troubled age. His administrative methods helped raise the standard of living.

Charlemagne's greatest contribution was his work as a patron of culture and extender of civilization. The Palace School, set up at his capital in Aachen under the leadership of the English scholar Alcuin (735-804), stimulated interest in education, philosophy, and literature. Most of the leading scholars were churchman, so this vast cultural activity greatly strengthened the church and had far-reaching and lasting results. In this way, Charlemagne, by means of his power and eminence, gave western Europe a unified culture so strong that it survived the terrible invasions and disorders of the next 200 years.

1902:

The Morning Oregonian (Portland, Oregon), July 24, 1902

"Death of Oliver Seymour Phelps.-- Oliver Seymour Phelps, who was well known in Portland in the ‘70s and the early ‘80s, died at his home at Viola, Clackamas, County, yesterday morning, at the age of 86 years. The body was brought to this city for burial, and the funeral will take place from Holman's chapel. Mr. Phelps was a native of Canada, but for many years before he came West he had been a resident of Ohio, and once he controlled a large part of the grain shipments over Lake Erie. When he arrived in Portland he engaged in the grocery business, and he served two terms as a Justice of the peace. He was twice married, and his first wife was for many years a teacher in the public schools. She died in 1888, and a few years afterward he was married to a Mrs. Kitterman, and they made their home at Viola. His widow and a son by the former marriage survive him. The son, Frank Phelps, is now a resident of San Francisco."
