Welcome to Winnie's Blog!!

Hello, and welcome to my blog. My name is Winiford Sheila OHLEGSCHLAGER BAILEY. I'm happy you dropped by even if only for a minute or two. I guess I should have baked some chocolate chip cookies for you, but I never was a cookie baking mother or grandmother.

I was born at the end of the Oregon Trail in Wasco County, once a very large county, in the city of The Dalles, on the southern bank of the Columbia River where my OHLEGSCHLAGER branch has resided since 1863. I was baptised in the mighty Columbia River and weaned on Northwest History. Is it any surprise I became interested in genealogy? My family tree may not be very large, old or distinguished, but it is all my sister and I have . . . along with our pictures.

Parents and Sunday school taught me to make wise choices. By far the wisest choice I ever made took place on February 19th 1939 when I said "I do". Jack Raymond BAILEY and I were married in the home of my grandfather, Harry T. SHEARER, of The Dalles, Oregon. The BAILEY brothers, Jack and Donald and their siblings come from a very long line of distinguished ancestors going back into very ancient history that includes the Magna Carta Barons ... of which they are members in the National Society. Their parents, Walter Raymond BAILEY and Mabel Clair WITHERS, each descend from a passenger or two on the Mayflower. Their more recent ancestors, at least 8 or 9 couples, crossed the plains between 1848 and 1864 to settle in Oregon, mainly in Clackamas and Lane counties.

Over the years I have collected volumes of information on my family and the family of my husband Jack, as well as the allied families. This new electronic media gives me the opportunity to share some of that information with you and, with a bit of luck, meet some new cousins. I hope you enjoy your visit and come back often.

Hello From Winnie's Daughter Sally

Hello Everyone,

This is Winnie's middle child Sally. I have just been added as a contributor to Mother's Family History Blog. My husband Kurt and I have recently retired to Tennessee. Whenever I find some new family information, you will see me as a new contributor.

Sally

Hello from Winnie's niece Gloria

I am Winnie's niece, my mother Edwina Ohlegschlager Bailey is Winnie's sister. I will update from my side of the family as information becomes available.

About Me

This is my personal family, therefore a story of my life, and it may be a bit gossipy for some. If it wasn't for my great grandparents, grandparents and my parents where would I be today ?
*WSB - 1997*

Today, SEP 3, 2005, I am 86. My father has one step-sister still living, Myrtle TURNER; my mother has two sisters and a brother living, Mary OHLEGSCHLAGER, Bertha SPLETZER and Harold SHEARER.

Most of the family photo's I am using come from my mothers album, and my aunt's. After Aunt Edna died, her son, Clifford HENDERSON (my 1st cousin), sent me a box of old photo's, for which I am very grateful. So many times these old treasures are unlabeled and therefore burned ... an unlabeled photo is as useless as an unindexed genealogy history.

A photo, tho very often interesting in itself, becomes much more so when put together with some history or good ole' gossip.

My paternal grandmother's name was Hatwig DOMAN MATHWIG, DOMAN being her surname. Her last name has been spelled in several different manners. DHOMAN for instance or DHOLMAN, I have even been told HADOMAN. In this latter rendition, I believe her first name, Hattie, got caught up . The sound of a person's name is so often used it can be confusing, so try them all, go by other clues, dates, location, family members, etc.

Related works I have compiled are a RINEHART book, a WITHERS book, an EDWARDS book, a DILDINE book, a MATLOCK book and a KEITH - BAILEY book. These are books relating to the BAILEY's on the RINEHART - OHLEGSCHLAGER family tree .... Walter's branch only, but there are a number of us.
