From "History of North Washington" Published 1904

    John W. Seibert is one of the venerable residents of Ferry county, and is now making his home on the Sans Poil river about fifteen miles south of Republic. His sons located the town of Westfork which bids fair to become one of the prosperous villages of the county. Mr. Seibert devotes his attention to mining and farming and has shown himself industrious and reliable. He was born in Berkeley county, Vermont on June 12, 1825, being the son of Samuel and Mary (Mong) Seibert, natives of Pennsylvania and Vermont, respectively. They later settled in the state of Ohio, and lived  there the rest of their lives. Our subject was one of nine children, named as follows: Aaron, Moses, J. W., who is the subject of this article, Mary, Samuel, Micahel, Cyrus, Benjamin, and Joseph. In Wayne county, Ohio, our subject was educated, receiving a good common school training, and at the age of twenty-six, began life for himself. He worked on a farm for some time, and then learned the miller's trade which he followed for twenty years. In 1849, Mr. Seibert crossed the plains to  California and mined for a while, and then returned home, having been gone just two years and thirteen days. After this, he farmed in Ohio until 1873, then went to Missouri. Later, we find him in Huntsville, Washington. A short time after settlement there, he came on to Okanogan county, which was his home for fifteen years. During that time, Mr. Seibert gave his attention to mining almost exclusively, then moved to Ferry county, locating where we find him at the present time. He owns the Planton mine, which has one hundred and thirty feet of tunneling, and for a half interest of which he was recently offered four thousand dollars. In connection with his sons he also owns valuable placer mines, and is also interested in the town site of Westfork with them.
    In 1853, Mr. Seibert married Miss Delia, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Crofford) Ritchey, natives of Ohio. The parents lived in Ohio until their death and to them were born seven children, Katherine, Delia, Charles, Jane, Ellen, Thomas, and Matilda. To Mr. and Mrs. Seibert seven children have been born: Samuel, deceased; Joseph; Otho, a physician in Ohio; Jessie, wife of J. Inman in Whitman county; Washington; C. H.; J. B.; and R. D. The last three named are still at home with their parents.
    Mr. Seibert is a good, active Republican, and has always labored for the upbuilding of the communities where he has dwelt. He has held various offices and has always shown himself a patriotic and substantial citizen.


Wrote Note to Brother-in-Law and Then Threw Himself Into Bay

    A body identified as that of De Witt Clinton Inman was found in the bay at the foot of Eagle street yesterday. A note, apparently written by Inman for the purpose of identification, was found in his coat. It stated that his mother-in-law, Mrs. Rosa M. Wilson, lived at 1323 Ninth avenue, this city. The body was taken to Bonney & Watson’s where Mrs. Wilson identified it. Inman was 32 years old and had been in Seattle since May 1. He came from Chicago, where his wife is now living at 166 Oakwood Boulevard.
    Mrs. Wilson believes Inman was not in his right mind because of long suffering from disease and that he became tired of life. Edward Wilson, brother-in-law of Inman, received a postal card yesterday from Inman stating that he was going away forever and asking everybody to forgive him.
    Inman originally came from Denver, where he had lived for many years. His father was at one time chief of police of that city. He was for a time clerk of the police court in Denver. During the world’s fair he was appointed to the police force in Chicago and remained on the force for ten years at the Englewood station. A sister is the wife of George Price, of George Price & Co. of Chicago. Another sister lives in Pennsylvania.
    "Mr. Inman came to Seattle for his health," said Mrs. Wilson, "but he seemed to derive no benefit from the change. I thought as much of him as if he were my own son and I greatly regret that weakened by disease and the despondency resulting from it, he should have ended his life."
    Mrs. Inman was notified and the disposition of the body awaits her direction.

    Albert O. Kruse was born near Wilsonville, Oregon, March 30, 1858, where he resided with his parents, the late John and Ianta Kruse until he entered school and graduated from the National Business college of Portland in 1879.  Later he was engaged in the confectionery business in Portland under the name of Kruse and Browing.
    His Steam boating career began in the early eighties on the Willamette river with Capt. J. C. Gore on the U.S. Government snagboat Corvallis.  Since then he has been almost continuously with the Joseph Kellogg Transportation Co. with the exception of about two years, which time he was with Robert A. Lincoln in the commission business in Portland.
    He was married to Mary E. Inman at Freeport, Dec 23, 1886.  To them four children were borne.  He passed from this life Jan 8, 1917, leaving a wife and three children, Fritz, Bert and Veranus, to mourn his loss; also two brothers, John Lorin and H. A, Kruse of Wilsonville, Oregon.
    Funeral services were conducted this afternoon from the Methodist church by Rev. H. E. Greening with a large attendance of sorrowing friends from Kelso and vicinity, Toledo and Portland.  The deep affection in which the deceased was held by many friends was manifested by the host of beautiful floral pieces.  Interment was made in the Catlin cemetery.

Kelsonian, Kelso, Cowlitz Co., WA, Wednesday, Jan 10, 1917, Page 1, column 4



    In the death of Capt. A. O. Kruse early Monday morning following a brief illness the Kellogg Transportation Co., lost one of its most valuable, veteran employees, Kelso a worthy and respected citizen, and many residents of this section a dear friend.  For more than thirty years Capt. Kruse had been in the employ of the Kellogg Transportation Co., and was well known among steamboat men along the Columbia and Cowlitz.  As mate and captain of the old Northwest and later as captain of the Chester he has been a familiar figure in Kelso and as a navigator on the Columbia and Cowlitz rivers.  The Northwest formerly make the run directly from Portland to Toledo, but since the discontinuance of that service by the company the Streamer. Chester under Captain Kruse’s command has been making the run from Kelso to Toledo except during the low water seasons, when it is tied up here.  Capt. Kruse has ever been regarded as one of the most lever-headed and dependable steamboat men in this section, and his untimely demise will be the cause for mourning among a wide circle of friends.

    Capt. Kruse has made his home in and around Kelso most of the time for the past 35 years and by his honorable life and honest dealing has earned the respect and loyal friendship of all with whom he came in contact.  He never hesitated to do a favor for a friend, and was very popular with the members of his crew, his superior officers and the patrons of the company.



    Andrew Inman died yesterday at St. Joseph’s hospital at the age of 39 years.
    Mr. Inman was born in Wisconsin and had been a resident of the Baker school district, near here, for some time.
    He is survived by a son, Francis, and five brothers and four sisters. His wife Ida Inman, died a year ago.
    The body is at Limber’s until the funeral services which will be held tomorrow at 2 o’clock from the Salmon Creek Methodist Episcopal church. Interment will be in the Salmon Creek cemetery.

Prominent Lumberman Dies

    Robert D. Inman, president of the Inman-Poulsen Lumber Co. and one of the best known lumbermen of the Northwest died in a hospital in Portland yesterday after an illness of several months. He was operated upon at a Portland hospital last week and word of his death came as a great shock to his many friends throughout the Northwest. It had been announced that he was regaining his health.
    Mr. Inman was born in Ohio 66 years ago and came west as a boy, crossing the plains. On this journey they had several battles with Indians. He became identified with the lumber industry when a young man, and was one of the organizers of the old Northern Pacific Lumber Co. In 1890 he and Johan Poulsen organized the Inman-Poulsen Lumber Co. and his conspicuous business ability was instrumental in the successful operations of that company, which is one of the strongest in the country.

Man gets 25 years in slaying of teen

by Nancy Montgomery - Seattle Times Snohomish County bureau

EVERETT - Bradley Connor-Shroyer was remembered lovingly by his parents yesterday at a Snohomish County Superior Court hearing, where they asked for the maximum punishment for their teenage son's killer.
    Judge Gerald Knight complied. He sentenced Joshua Inman, 18, of Lake Stevens to seven more years than Inman has been alive.    
    Noting Inman's conviction when he was 13 of burning a trailer containing his sleeping father and his apparent lack of remorse, Knight gave Inman 20 years, four months for second-degree murder and five more years for using a gun.
    That's the top of the standard sentencing range and the sentence recommended by Deputy Prosecutor Lisa Paul.
    "You made your bed. Now it's time to lie in it," Knight told Inman.
    Inman was convicted of the October shooting of Connor-Shroyer, 15, at a Lake Stevens gravel pit where the two had gone for target practice.
    Last month, he entered an Alford plea, maintaining his innocence but conceding that the evidence would lead to a guilty verdict. At his sentencing, he expressed condolences to the Connor-Shroyer family but refrained from explaining what happened.
    According to court documents, Inman told an acquaintance he had killed Connor-Shroyer, whom he had recently befriended. That acquaintance called police, who later recovered the rifle used in the killing.
    Conner-Shroyer's mother, father and two grandmothers all told Knight about the terrible effects of Bradley's loss.
    "I come home to an empty house filled with memories and pictures, never being able to hug Brad, never hearing him tell me he loves me," said Tony Connor, his father.
    His mother, Rochelle Racker, told the judge that her eldest son's 4-year-old twin brothers talk about him constantly, say they want to go to heaven to be with him and ask what kind of toys are in heaven.
    "My heart is so broken," Racker said.
    Connor-Shroyer's two grandmothers remembered teaching their grandson to swim, his ability to make them laugh and the big talker he always was.
    No one spoke on Inman's behalf, except his lawyer.
    Attorney Dennis McGuire said 17 years in prison would be just, considering Inman's age and the fact that his heavy use of methamphetamine had skewed his judgment.
    "Sentencing him to more than that will accomplish nothing," McGuire said.

William Stone 
    William G. Stone, 78, of Port Orchard died July 15, 1998, at his home. 
    He was born April 1, 1920, in Blox, Texas. 
    He graduated from high school in Beaumont, Texas. Later he completed a four-year apprenticeship sheet metal program at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. 
    On Dec. 13, 1943, he married Gloria R. Cramer in Bremerton. 
    Mr. Stone served from 1939 to 1970 in the Navy and in the Naval Reserves. He was a World War II veteran. He made his living as a sheet metal layout man for 24 years at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard until his retirement in 1972. 
    Survivors include his wife; two daughters, Sandra Barry of Bremerton and Pamela Vant of Port Orchard; two brothers, Jerry Inman of San Antonio, Texas, and Louis Stone of Houston; a sister, Jane Stringfellow of Mobile, Ala.; seven grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. 
Memorial services will be at 11 a.m. July 22 at First Lutheran Church, Port Orchard. 
    Arrangements are under the direction of Pendleton-Gilchrist Funeral Home at Rill Chapel. 
Memorials may be made to the Kitsap Square Dancer Center, 6800 West Belfair Valley Road, Bremerton, WA 98312.

Veterinarian will not be charged in man's shooting death 

    SHELTON -- A Shelton-area veterinarian who shot and killed an intruder in his clinic Dec. 7 will not be charged, the Mason County prosecutor's office said.
    Prosecutor Gary Burleson said he found Ken Coleman's use of deadly force to be reasonable. If facts change, Coleman could be prosecuted, Burleson said.
    Robert P. Inman, 18, died in a ditch about 130 feet from Coleman's clinic after Coleman fired shots at Inman and another man. The second man, 25-year-old Otis William Dahman, was arrested and booked into the Mason County Jail on outstanding warrants.
    Coleman was sleeping at his clinic that night, armed with a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, because police had warned veterinarians that armed burglars might hit clinics looking for the drug ketamine. The drug is known as "Special K" and is referred to by police as a date-rape drug. Veterinarians use it to sedate cats.
    The intruders cut phone lines to Coleman's clinic and nearby home, Burleson said, and were armed with guns and a knife.

    Mitchell Lee Inman, "Moochie", passed away at home in Onalaska, on May 18, 2005, surrounded by his loving family and friends. Mitch was born December 28, 1957, at Chehalis, WA. He was 47 years old. Mitch was preceded in death by his father, Ira J. Inman, two brothers, Dale B. and Mark G. Inman, and by a nephew, Tyler J. Inman.
    He will always be remembered by his loving mother Shirley A. Christensen and stepfather Rocky. Also by his two brothers Gilbert Inman, and his wife Sue, and James Christensen and wife Kristie. His two sisters, Yvonne D. Robertson, and Billie J. Bush will also miss him very much.
    Mitch loved his nieces, JoAnne, Lori and Bethany, and nephews, William, Guy, Brandon, Pete, Brian, Trevor, and Cole all very much. They brought much happiness and joy to his life, and he to theirs. Mitch also had four great-nieces and two great-nephews, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
    Mitch was born with Muscular Dystrophy, which progressed as he got older, but he never let that stop him from pursuing many interests in his life. Mitch loved music (mostly country) and was a good singer. He loved to draw, and was a good artist, drawing many different pictures for his family and friends, and he sold some of his artwork, as well.
    When he wasn't able to draw free hand he used his computer to make pictures. He loved his computer, playing games and going "on-line" and gaming with other people. He loved to e-mail his friends and relatives. Mitch enjoyed having a beer now and then, and for you to join him for one (or two).
    Mitch was a unique individual who never let his "handicap" get him down. He went on many outings with family and friends and lived his life to the fullest. He loved his family and friends and everyone close to him. He touched the lives of everyone he came across. We are privileged to have known him and to have had him with us for so many wonderful years. He will be greatly missed.
    A celebration of Mitch's memory will be held on Saturday, May 28th, 2005 at Brown Mortuary at 1 PM. Interment will follow at Fir Lawn Cemetery in Toledo.
    Remembrances may be sent to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Ruth Crone
    Ruth was her family's first and best teacher. She taught them how to be strong and to enjoy life with all of it's adventures through her many 'hands on' lessons. She
was a 4-H club leader and a volunteer at many county fairs and 4-H camps. She enjoyed teaching Sunday school, assisting with youth groups, and volunteering
where needed with church activities. She loved sewing, and doing handiwork of all kinds, often looking forward to entering it in the fair. Throughout her home, her
love for nature is displayed in creations often made of odd and unusual natural materials. Family and friends looked forward to hiking, fishing and picking
huckleberries with Ruth. Year after year she planted gardens of fruits, vegetables and flowers, often anxiously awaiting the harvest of a new variety. Many shelves
in her home are filled with houseplants that she so lovingly has cared for and shared with others. She delighted in sharing photos of her latest travel adventures and
the plans for her next trip, as her desire to explore never ceased. Her love for God's creatures, both domestic and wild, is evident in the variety of pets that she has cared for over many years including her final three, Dixie her tiny daily companion, Tommy, and Lucky Toes. Taking care of others, both young and old, brought Ruth a sense of accomplishment. Her greatest lesson taught, is of love for her family. Her children...step, grand, great, and in-laws, her sisters, nieces, nephews and
cousins, feel very fortunate to have had their lives so greatly influenced by Ruth's love. During the last few months, she taught how to accept the end of life
experience with strength and dignity, with God's love and care. She never stopped teaching.
