The Garfield Enterprise has for some weeks pasf been publishing a series of historical articles from thel pen of Hen. J. C. Lawrence, pioneer: resident of Garfield, now located ~:L Puyallup, dealing one by one with the local communities within a ra- dius of a few miles of Garfield. The :~tory published last week deals with the early history of Turnbow flat, which is still peopled largely by the early settlers or their descendents. In fact we know of no other commu tdty where the early day settler i:~ so much in evidence ~ in the Turn- bow flat community. The settler~ were substantial people and good ell- ions and have handed these qualities down to their descendents. Mr. Lawrence's article follows: This flat was of course named for the Turnbows. There were two of the elder brothers, Isaac and Riley, each with a large family. Isaac lived near the Palonse river, while R.ileyi lived on the flat, near the present! school house. Gne of his early day i houses was used as a school ]lOUSe. William, John, Otis, Steve, Jeff, hie Powers. They live on the [lai near the old Turnbow home, as does George. Nearly all the old residents of Garfield will remember the trag- edg of Tom Turnbow's death. Tom was a manly man of the sturdy Ken- tucky type and the county lost: a good citizen in his death. His widow married Abe Ebersole, a well known Garfield citizen and a splendid man. They live at Walls Walls. .lc, hn Turnbow is a prominent citi- xen of the county He served a term in the legislature with the remark- ~.ble record of being right on every vote cast. Pat Lewis was a brother-in-law to Isaac Turnbow. their wives being sis- ers. The Lewises lived between Isaac Turnbow's and McClure's. Ben- hie Lewis. the only son lives in Pa- lou.~-e, where his father and mother spent their last years. He and his father were. carpenters and good ones, too. Eruma married George Living- stone, a pioneer teacher who lives at Pulhnan. They raised a fine family of girls and a son who made the su- )reme sacrifice in the world war. He ;as an aviator and fall with his plane. Emma, l~lorenee and Beulah )lave passed away. W. H H. McClure lived between Eden Valley and Turnbow flat. He came in 1880 from the Willamette valley with his wife and quite a large family. He was a brother-in-law of up to the rider to get off and wallow ahead through tile dr]Ill, tramping ;~ path for the horse. Some of the drills were very deep. You (:ouht work your way down bnt it was nec- essary to go around to find a place to go up if on the north side. You could not get a horse up through a deep drift. That was the deepest snow in the Paiouse as far ~s I know, unless in 1916 wi]en I was away. I have mentioned Jacob Hodgen be- fore. He lived on Turnbow flat. Nancy Hodgen married Sheridan Mc- Clure. She died In Garfield several )'ears ago. Uncle Jake and wife are both dead. Charlie is, I think, the only survivor of ):he family.
