John C. Travillion

Mr. Travillion was born to Thomas M. and Ann E. (Williams) Travillion on August 1, 1852, in Otterville, Missouri, where he was reared on a farm and secured his educational training in the public schools. In 1873 he left the home nest and turned toward the west for exploration and to seek a home for himself. He came by rail to Kelton, Utah, and thence by stage to Baker City, where he at once went into the operations of mining, which he prosecuted with vigor until 1878, then took government land on Powder river, about sixteen miles north of Baker City. He gave himself to farming and stock raising, most of his time being occupied in handling cattle and sheep, and uninterruptedly he has continued that industry since. He has gained an enviable success in this work because of his wisdom in handling affairs and because of his tireless energy in caring for detail in every department of his business. His real estate holdings have grown from the government piece to an estate of one thousand acres of good land all fenced and improved in an up-to-date manner with all the buildings and conveniences needed for the transaction of his business. In 1892, Mr. Travillion entered into partnership with Mr. Kelsey and Mr. Gorham in the milling business in North Powder. They erected a good mill of fifty barrels capacity per day in that city and equipped it with modern and complete machinery. The power for operating it is taken from the Powder river, it being a water power plant. The business has been handled with sagacity and deferential treatment of its patrons until at the present time they enjoy a trade as large a the plant can handle and have the entire confidence of the community. In 1898, Mr. Kelsey sold out his interests and Mr. Travillion, in company with Mr. Gorham, owns the entire plant. In 1892 Mr. Travillion removed his family from the stock farm to North Powder and there resided until 1898, when he erected a modern ten-room residence at 2208 Clark street, Baker City, elegant and tasty, where his home is made at the present time, although he spends much time in personal supervision of the plant at North Powder.

On September 7, 1879, Mr. Travillion and Miss Fannie J., daughter of Captain Edward M. and Nancy M. White, were married the fruit of the union is three children, Lillie A., Harry C., and Nettie J. Mr. Travillion is a past grand in the I.O.O.F., Lodge No. 88, in North Powder, and is also a member of the W. of W., Camp No. 109, in the same town, and in Baker City he belongs to the Fraternal Union. The parents of our subject came to Baker City in 1883, the father was retired from business and his demise occurred in 1894, but the mother is still living in Baker City. He has one brother in the Willamette valley and one, County Judge Judge Travillion, in Baker City. Mr. Travillion is at this day one of the most prominent business men of the county and has ever manifested a worthy conduct that has won for him the esteem of all and the entire confidence of the business world where he operates. While never pressing forward for personal preferment in the political world, nevertheless he has taken the interested part of the good citizen and forms one of that number of substantial men who are the bone and sinew of the community and of the political world are the very foundation.

North Powder News, Saturday, January 29, 1918

Mrs. J. C. Travillion who died in Portland and was buried in Baker today was one of our own people, and there are possibly some still here who remember her as Fannie White. Her father owned and named the Lily White Mine. Fannie White was married to J. C. Travillion 38 years ago. She was 56 years of age at the time of her death. her three children, Lillie Richardson, now of Portland, Nettie Stubbs of Newberg, and Harry Travillion (Now also married) of Wingville, were all born here. The Travillion ranch is about three miles S.E. of town. Mr. Travillion's mother made her home with her son and his wife for many years, and for the greater part of the past 18 years the Travillions have lived with her mother in Portland where she died. Mr. Travillion spent the summer here looking after his hay ranch but returned to Portland sometime ago upon hearing that his wife was ill. Always of a gentle and gracious presence, Mrs. Travillion was admired, respected and loved by all who knew her. She had a singularly sweet and sympathetic natural singing voice, and she sang for many years in the choir of the Baptist church here when the membership was large and active. A call for help never found her unready or unwilling. Her work here was surely well done.

Maylor, Dorothy Mae

Dorothy Mae Maylor, fondly known as Mom, Aunt Mary, and Grandma Mary, is at rest. Mary was born in Los Angeles on March 30, 1921, and passed away at her home in Oak Harbor on Sept. 3, 2008. At a young age Mary came to Whidbey Island with her family, and they made their home in Coupeville where Mary graduated from high school. She began her work life on a Whidbey Island farm where she cooked meals for the farmhands. A fast learner and creative woman, Mary became one of the best cooks around. She was well known for her homemade pies. In 1943 Mary met and fell in love with Randolph "Haley" Maylor and was his bride for 50 years. Together they enjoyed gardening, fishing, crabbing, clamming, playing cards and time with their family and friends. During the 60s and 70s, Mary worked at the Queen Ann Motel and the King's Table restaurant. She did a variety of work, but being in the kitchen was her favorite. Once retired, Mary enjoyed many camping trips around the state with Haley. She was an excellent seamstress and loved to crochet, knit and make items for others to cherish. For 56 years Mary was a loyal member of the Oak Leaf Rebekah Lodge. She was a Boy Scout den mother, member of the Oak Harbor Garden Club, Vagabonds and Oak Harbor Senior Center. In her later years, Mary's weekly highlight was being with her friends for a shared lunch and an afternoon of bingo. Mary was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Randolph Maylor and stepsons, Wesley Maylor and Robert Maylor. She is survived by her son, Dennis (Sally) Maylor, many step grandchildren, step great grandchildren, step great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families. She was loved by all and will be missed. At Mary's request no traditional funeral service will be held; however, a celebration of her life is being planned and will be announced in the near future. The family suggests that remembrances may be made to the Oak Harbor Senior Center, Oak Leaf Rebekahs or their charity of choice. Arrangements were entrusted to Burley Funeral Chapel, Oak Harbor.

Elwyn was born in Portland, Oregon to Alfred and Iva (Ward) Bushnell. He was known as "Cap" or "EJ" by friends and family. He married the love of his life "Willie" (Wilda) and lived in Pendleton most of their 64 years together. In 2008 they moved to Dayton Oregon to be closer to their daughter. He worked as head mechanic at Eastern Oregon State Hospital for 34 years and retired when the facility closed in about 1984. Cap continued to fix cars in his own auto shop for several years. Since his father owned Bushnell's Wrecking Yard in La Grande. Cap had the pick of cars to drive "if" he could get them to run. This was the beginning of his love of cars and working on cars! At age 12 he rebuilt a Model T truck with the plan to deliver papers on his morning paper route. Of course "he drove" and his friends volunteered to do the leg work just to be along for the ride! Cap & Willie spent many years restoring old cars, classic cars and pick up trucks. Working together, they reupholstered interiors, fixed engines, and painted the vehicles. They camped, fished and traveled the Northwest and Canada by motorcycle, in many "cool" pickup trucks, and by motor home. Many Monday morning stories were shared about their getting "stuck" in snow and mud or driving through rivers and in general having a busy and exciting time. We will remember him most for his love of Willie, his little Doxies, his love of driving and his kind heart!! He is survived by Jerry and Jackie Bushnell of Twisp, Wa; Cheryl and Robert Ray of Dayton, Oregon; Sister Donna Powell of La Pine, Or. He is preceded in death by his wife Wilda in April 2009. At his request there will be no memorial and burial will be at Weston Cemetery in Weston, Oregon.
