Pauline Almira Bailey

1. Obit for Pauline Almira Bailey--Pauline A Bailey was born Jan 22, 1837, in Lancaster Co, PA. Died July 21, 1917, after an illness of five weeks. She had been a constant member of the M E church since her fourteenth year and during her last illness found great comfort in the word of God, repeating from memory hymns and Psalms, as she lay, apparently oblivious to those about her.
    In 1854 she was married to J B Carpenter at Hanford, PA. Of this union were born three girls, two of whom, Mrs Emma Bray, of Hot Springs, SD, and Annie Wall Barnett of Patterson, CA, are yet living.
    She moved from PA to WI in 1856, and her husband died at Muscoda, WI, in 1863.
    She was married in 1864, to H Peckham and to them was born two sons, both of whom are yet living, Fred H Peckham at Brady, NE, and C N Peckham at Ceres, CA. Their family moved to NE, in 1880 and from there to OR in 1889 and from OR to CA in 1900. Her husband died at Ceres, CA in 1906. One daughter Mrs T C Northey, died in 1883. She leaves four children and nine grandchildren to mourn her loss.
    For the past six years she has lived with her beloved niece, Mrs Martha Miller, at Turlock, where she was tenderly cared for during her last illness by her daughter, Annie Wall Barnett and Mrs Miller.
    The funeral services were held at the M E church at Turlock Monday afternoon, July 23. Rev Leedom, who was the pastor of the deceased twenty years ago in NE, officiating. The text for the sermon was "She hath done what she could." at the close of which Rev Leedom read a poem written by her daughter Annie Wall Barnett--"Mother Is At Rest." Six women, members of the Bible class in Sunday school to which she belonged, acted as pall bearers. The interment was in the family lot in the Ceres Cemetery.

2. From Remembrances of Early Days in NE--by C F Peckham. Printed in a series of three articles in the Gothenburg Times, beginning July 21, 1928.
    "About 1890, Uncle Halsey and Aunt Paulina were coming from Gothenburg in a wagon when their horses ran away near our home. They were thrown out and so badly hurt that they never got over the effects of their accident.  Aunt Paulina was a cripple for 20 years."

8005. Emma Eugenie Carpenter

From the diary written by Eleanor Isabell Carpenter in 1879 when the family left Muscoda, WI to come to NE.
entry for July 15, 1879---Left Franklin Co after visiting Uncle Lewis Wilson and Uncle Wash and Aunt Em Carpenter. Left Emma with them. (I am not sure which family Emma stayed with. She went to school there and married LeRoy Bray there)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------
In 1953 Emma and LeRoy Bray were living in Hot Springs, SD. They had two girls.

8006. Annie Mario Carpenter

Poem written by Annie Wall Barnett for her mother's funeral.
         MOTHER IS AT REST         JULY 21, 1917

She suffered patiently as best
    Becomes a child of grace.
She knew in whom she trusted and
    No fears could long have place.
Her weary feet had journeyed far
    O'er paths up hill and rough.
Pain walked with her until Love said,
    "Come home, it is enough."

No love or tender care could stay
    The Grim Destroyer's breath.
Though love did all that love could do
    To ease the pains of death.
She paid unto the uttermost
    Pain's last devouring toll
Ere the Angel of Deliverance came
    To liberate her soul.

She ceased to suffer and the lines,
    Of age slipped from her face,
And on her brow left holy calm
    And some of youth's lost grace.
The peace of tasks all ended and
    Delights which earth denied--
Joys of reunion with her own--
    Heart hunger satisfied!

Oh, who would call her back to pain,
    Or shed a selfish tear,
When she has found all that her heart
    With sadness yearned for here.
When she has folded her worn hands
    In peace of heavenly rest
And found the ultimate of joy
    And all that love holds best.

Dear mother, rest in peace. I know
    Beyond all earthly pain
Where Love's immortal lillies blow
    We'll clasp your hands again.
A few more years of tears and pain
    For us who linger here.
Then glad reunion in a land
    Where Love dries every tear.

Thomas Clenom Northey

1. Married to Eleanor Carpenter, Sept 16, 1879, in Pawnee City, NE. Consent given by Halsey Peckham. Marriage by J H Ph-sson (unreadable) Pastor of the ME church.
2. From the Gothenburg Times, March 12, 1953, Gothenburg, NE

    *Came west with Peckhams and settled before there was any such town as Gothenburg.

    Tomie Clenom Northey was born in Lancaster, WI, April 12, 1859, and died at Mariposa, CA, Feb 23, 1953, nearing the age of 94 years. His birth place was the old United States Hotel, which his parents, William and Martha Simpkins Northey, kept in Lancaster. Prior to the Civil War his father conducted a hotel at Platteville, WI, and U S Grant, who was a hide and horse buyer working in that part of the country before he became General, made his headquarters at the Northey hotels and became very friendly with the proprietor.
    In 1863, Tomie's parents moved to Woodman, where his father was in the employ of the old Milwaukee & Mississippi Railroad one year. They then went to Boscobel where his father worked for the Milwaukee & Prairie de Chien Railroad as telegraph operator and express agent five years. While in Boscobel, when Tomie was nine years old, he lost his mother by death.
    In 1869, his father married Cornelia Simpkins, moved to Blue River where he was station agent and telegraph operator until 1879. It was but natural that Tomie, one of his brothers and two sisters all were later employed as telegraphers.
    It was at Blue River that Tomie received his education, and many were the pleasant memories he enjoyed of his schoolmates, whom he would mention by name, and of the happy hours of fishing, swimming and skating along the Blue and the WI rivers, and of other sports and activities which were a part of the community life of those early days.
    When he was about 18 years old, he moved with his parents to a farm near Muscoda, where they engaged in farming, stock raising and stone quarrying.
    In 1879, at the age of 20, he trekked westward with a caravan from Crawford Co, WI, which consisted of four wagons drawn by horses, and other wagons hitched to four yokes of oxen, the wagons being followed by 150 head of cattle belonging to "Uncle Josh" Peckham. With Uncle Josh and his wife, Aunt Ann, were their four sons: Fremont, Herman, Elmer and Oscar, and the young man Tomie. The other part of the train included Uncle Josh's brother, Halsey Peckham and his wife, Paulina, their two sons, Fred and Charley, a daughter of Paulina's by a former marriage, Nellie Carpenter, and Ada Colvin.
    On July 1, 1879, after about two and a half months on the road, they crossed the Missouri River from Iowa into Nebraska at Nebraska City; and it is interesting to note that by an unusual coincidence on July 1, 1946, just 67 years later to the very day, Tomie again crossed the Missouri River at the very same place while he was on a trip back to visit his old haunts in WI.
    At Pawnee City, NE, Tomie stopped temporarily to work for one of Aunt Ann's brothers, Jim Atkinson, while the others proceeded westward to find a location for their future home. The place chosen was on the south side of the Platte River in eastern Lincoln Co, NE, some miles from where Gothenburg now stands, and about 40 miles east of Buffalo Bill's old ranch at North Platte. After attending to the business of filing their claims with the government land office at North Platte, the party returned to Pawnee City, and from there Uncle Josh and his boys proceeded on to Carroll Co, IA, to bring on the cattle which had been left there with Ed Atkinson, one of Aunt Ann's brothers, until a permanent location was established.
    On Sept 16, 1879, Nellie Carpenter and Tomie were married in Pawnee City, and that fall they left with Halsey Peckham and his family for Franklin Co, NE, where some of Nellie's relatives lived about 35 miles south of Kearney. In Dec, Halsey and Tomie went out to the homesteads in Lincoln Co, where they arrived New Year's Eve. There they dug a hole in the ground, roofed it over with poles and brush and that held the land until they could bring out their families when spring came.
    Three years later, in 1883, death took Nellie, leaving Tomie with a son, Clyde E Northey, who is now deceased.
    From Jan 1 to April 1, 1884, Tomie carried mail through blizzards from a place called Cottonwood Springs to North Platte, a round trip of 44 miles, in what was known as a "Democrat" buggy. That fall he started work as a rider on the JB Ranch, which consisted of 15 sections of land that was owned by J B Curtis, a manufacturer of chewing gum of Portland, ME.
    About this time, Tomie met a niece of Aunt Ann's who had come west from WI, with her family and homesteaded in the vicinity. Lillian Evelyn Atkinson consented to share the pioneer life with him, and on March 14, 1886, they started a journey together which lasted well beyond their Golden Wedding Day, when death severed their companionship in 1941. To them were born four daughters and two sons, one of whom died in infancy.
    Soon after their marriage, the bride's father, William Atkinson, arranged for a series of meetings to be held in a sod school house in the neighborhood by a minister of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. As a result of attending these the young couple accepted the message of the soon-coming Saviour, and they now rest in the hope, waiting to be called forth to again resume the companionship which has been temporarily suspended.
    Mr Northey was one of 17 of the first registered voters in Farnam Precinct. To pass the lonely hours following the loss of his wife, he spent considerable time writing, for his own amusement, his memoirs of those early days in NE. In them he tells of the hard years, sometimes three in a row, when prairie fires, grasshoppers, drought or hail destroyed the grass and crops; of how the settlers picked up buffalo bones from the prairie and sold them in Plum Creek (now Lexington) to get a little money; of the neighbors whom he nursed during sickness, and those he prepared for burial after death, sometimes even conducting the services when no minister was available. He tells of the pleasant times also, when crops were good and the hills produced abundantly the wild fruit which the settlers so badly needed. He shared the joys and the sorrows of a generation now gone.
    During his last moments of life he was heard humming a song, and when asked about it, he said: "Yes, I am getting in tune with the angels." and thus passed a pioneer.
    The children who survive him are: Mrs Vyeva Alcox, Miss Fay Northey, Mrs Margie Pinkston and Neil W Northey, all of Mariposa CA, and Mrs Lila Morgan of Los Angeles. The deceased also leaves four brothers: Wilbur of Spokane, WA, Willis of Minneapolis, MN, Will of Billings, MT, and Otto of Oceana, CA., and one sister, Mrs Janie Baker of Seattle, WA. There are eight grandchildren: Clyde and Earl Northey of North Platte, NE, Fred Northey of Loveland, CO, Mrs Eldora Brown of Gothenburg, NE, Mrs Aleen Moore of Great Falls, MT. Ethel and Elma Pinkston of Mariposa, CA, and Volney Clenom Morgan, M D, of Santa Barbara, CA.
    He also leaves 10 great grandchildren, three great-great grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends.
    Funeral services were conducted in Mariposa, CA, by Elders Geo E West and John Baerg. The pallbears were: Wm A Morgan, son-in-law; David and Roy Tickner, nephews; Neil W Northey, son; Everet Atkinson, nephew; and Roy Knight. Interment was in the Mariposa cemetery.
