-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Some of the following is taken from History of the Pacific Northwest Oregon and Washington, published in 1889:In 1851 Joseph Bucht el purchased a daguerreotype outfit and entered the portrait business in Urbana, Illinois. In 1852 he crossed the plains to Oregon, and spent the next four years working on steamboats that plied the upper Willamette River, including the Shoalwater, Canemah and Willamette. During this time and after, he became a well-known and popular photographer; his work is even now prominently displayed in various Portland art galleries. Joseph Buchtel was active in the early history of Portland and Oregon, coming to Portland when it was a struggling village. He served one term as Sheriff of Multnomah County, he assisted in the organization of the Multnomah Fire Engine Company, and was chief of the volunteer department, and chief after the establishment of the paid department. He directed the erection of the first Morrison Street Bridge across the Willamette River, built by William Beck and others. He also built the first mile of street car track on the east side of the river, on Grand avenue, the intention being to build the line to City Park race track, in which he was interested, but it was never finished. He is the inventor of the telegraph fire hose, which was patented in1872, and also invented a coupling for the same in 1883. He also invented the patent wire-fence post. He was a champion baseball player for fifteen years, being pitcher and captain of the Pioneer Baseball Club for twenty years. He was able to bring about the purchase and setting apart of a 1200-acre tract at Champoeg, Oregon. He, with ten friends, bought the land and gave the state a deed to it, the state afterward reimbursing them for their outlay. This tract is now the Champoeg State Heritage Area.

amily: Arial;">From the Newark (OH) Daily Advocate of September 20, 1886: Brothers-ln-Law's Battle. AKRON, O., Sept 20. Elia Gangler and Joseph Boettler, brothers-in-law farmers near here, fought a terrible battle Sunday, In which the latter received internal injuries from which doctors say he cannot recover. Boettler was driving along in a wagon when Gangler met him, and leaving his team, sprang into Boettler's wagon and opened the fight Boettler's horses became frightened and ran furiously for fully five miles while the men were fighting in the wagon. Near Boettler's home Gangler, with face covered with blood, fell from the wagon. Boettler was unable to move when his team reached home. His face and chest had been stamped until they were raw. The bottom of the wagon looked like a slaughter house. There had been trouble between the two men for some time. (Note: Joseph's brother-in-law mentioned here was actually Elias Gougler, who married Joseph's sister Catherine/RLW).

Notes from The Virtual Wall:

SFC Jerry M. Shriver was part of a mixed US Special Forces/Montagnard force inserted into the immediate vicinity of a North Vietnamese Army headquarters located just across the Cambodian border in the Fishhook area.

The platoon was taken under heavy fire by NVA troops immediately after the insertion, leading to an all-day battle before suppressive fires finally reduced the enemy opposition to the point that the platoon (and a small supporting force separately inserted) could be extracted.

A total of 24 men had been inserted; 17 were recovered, and of those 17 ten were wounded and one was dead (1LT Gregory M. Harrigan). Two Americans and five Montagnards were not recovered; one of the seven, medic SGT Ernest C. Jamison, was known dead, while the other six were listed as Missing in Action. The remains of SGT Jamison and one of the Montagnards were recovered in 1970.

According to the Task Force Omega site, a Radio Hanoi broadcast indicated that Shriver had been killed in the fighting. However, he was carried as MIA until 10 June 1974, when the Secretary of the Army approved a Presumptive Finding of Death. During this time he was promoted from E-7 to E-8. As of 04 June 2004 his remains have not been repatriated.

There is a marker for Master Sergeant Jerry M. Shriver in the Fort Lawton Federal Cemetery in Seattle, Washington (Plot 4-235, placed 08/22/1974).

Unofficial information indicates that Master Sergeant Shriver was on his third tour of duty in Vietnam and received two Silver Stars, the Soldier's Medal, seven Bronze Stars (6 Oak Leaf Clusters), the Purple Heart, the Air Medal, and four Army Commendation Medals for valor - a total of 20 decorations when you include the Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and Vietnam Campaign Medal.

An article in the Massillon Evening Independent, December 16, 1907:
The case of Daniel Braucher, of McDonaldsville, who was charged with obtaining money under false pretense, came up in Justice Spidle's court Saturday afternoon. Braucher is a huckster and was charged with defrauding one of his customers when he sold her vegetables. The prosecuting witness was refunded the amount of her claim, which was very small, and as she refused to give security for the costs in the case. Justice Spidle did not feel justified in binding the man over to the court of common pleas at Canton. The man was dismissed.

Per state death records, Simon Bechtel died at the Summit County Infirmary, in Akron, Ohio. Originally known as the county poorhouse, the infirmary was a grim institution for destitute, elderly or disabled people who had no place else to live. Its residents, who were called inmates, were required to work on the farm if they were physically able. Mentally ill individuals were locked away in squalid quarters. When inmates died at the infirmary, they were buried in a potter's field. The size of the graveyard is unknown, but it must have held hundreds. At some point, the county expanded the burials to paupers who didn't live at the infirmary. After the closing of the infirmary (in 1919), some burials were relocated from this location to the new county home property in Tallmadge, but many were never removed. There is no record as to who was moved and who was not. The infirmary was located at West Exchange St. near Storer Ave., and the cemetery lay a distance behind it on land now occupied by Schneider Park in West Akron.

David Gill, an early Smeal family member wrote: "Nicholas Schmehl, founder of the Smeal clan of Eastern and Central Clearfield County, was of German extraction, having been born in eastern Pennsylvania, probably in Maxatawney Township in Berks County around the year 1752.  Nicholas was named for his immigrant father, who came by way of Rotterdam to colonial America toward the middle of the eighteenth century.  During the colonial struggle for independence, young Nicholas entered military service as a patriotic colonial volunteer.  During the war he was married to Elizabeth Volch in Reading, Pa.  She was from the George Volch family who may have emigrated from an early German settlement on the Hudson River Valley of New York state.  To this marriage we have reason to believe at least six children were born.  Quite late in the century, Nicholas emigrated (sic) to Central Pennsylvania, at which time we know he was already widowed and had with him four nine to seventeen-year-old children.  There is some indication that an older married daughter and a son remained in Berks County.  After settling in the vicinity of Philipsburg, the widow-father of this teenage family took another wife, named Catherine Cline, to whom were born seven children.  During this latter period of his life, he and Catherine lived for a few years in Centre County.  Later again bereft of his wife through death, he came as an old man to his eldest son's home in Bradford Township, Clearfield County, near Bigler.  After a few years, he died near his 75th year of life.  His great, great grandson, W.F. Gill, writes that he was a woodworker by trade, especially skilled in making bowls and household articles.  Nicholas was buried in Perks Cemetery near Philipsburg, where in 1959 the Daughters of the American Revolution placed a fitting memorial to his Revolutionary War involvement.  A great, great granddaughter, Miss Helen Pearce, has been especially influential because of her many years of untiring research and diligent personal and public relations in bringing about the above recognition.  My father, Wyatt F. Gill, referred to above contributed original research on this common ancestor during some earlier years."
