PHILIP DERRY: Born 4 April 1817, died 29 May 1854. Philip married CYNTHIA PRIBBLE. 17 Oct 1841 in Vermillion County, Illinois. She died in 1852 in Oregon. Philip was the oldest son of Jacob Derry-b.1795 PA/VA, who came from Pennsylvania and whos ancestors fought in the American Revolution.

Philip and his wife Cynthia gave power of attorney to Philip's brother, Basil Derry, on 28 March 1850, for selling their real estate in Adams County, Illinois, as they were leaving for Idaho and Oregon Territory to seek their fortunes. The real estate was sold to Jacob Kidney 9 September 1853. Rec'd 22 May 1852 (Ellington township?).

The journey met with tragedy, and this is their story...

Children of PHILIP DERRY and CYNTHIA PRIBBLE are:

3. i. JACOB3 DERRY/DEARY, b. October 01, 1846, Illinois; d. February 02, 1899, Silver City area, Owyhee County, ID.

4. ii. EDNA DERRY/DEARY, b. October 17, 1849 in Illinois.

iii. BASIL DERRY/DEARY, b. Abt. 1851, Oregon City, OR.

A Courageous Journey, Turns To Tragedy

Cynthia died on the Oregon trail in 1852, and Philip died 29 May 18542.

"With her (Edna (Deary) Raymond), father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Dairy (sic - also spelled Derry/Deary), and elder brother Jacob, Mrs. Raymond crossed the plains from Illinois to Oregon in 1851 when a child of two. They were among the first to come over the Barlow route over Mr. Hood in Oregon. The winter of 1851-52 the family spent at Oregon City where her younger brother, Basil, was born.
When Basil was less than two months old the family started for Jacksonville, OR - then a mining camp. The only way the trip could be accomplished in those days was by horseback. The trail led through a canyon and the party was compelled to follow a creekbed for the greater part of the way. This was when it took three days to go 15 miles. The unfortunate part of the journey was that the horse carrying Mrs. Raymond's mother, Mrs. (Philip) Dairy, slipped and fell, breaking her arm. Resulting from this exposure, Mrs. Dairy became ill and died 3 months later, leaving the 3 small children. When Mrs. Raymond was 4 years old her father (Philip Dairy) died. The 3 orphaned children were then separated: Jacob stayed with Mr. Towner Savage, at whose house his father died; Edna was adopted by Rev. O. Dickenson; and Basil, the youngest had already been given to the woman who cared for the mother at the time of her death."

Notes for EDNA DEARY:
From "The South San Francisco Journal", California, Wednesday, November 1, 1939, is the obituary of Mrs. Edna (Deary) Raymond, who was a sister of the Jacob Dery (sic - also spelled Derry/Deary) who came to Camp Three Forks, Owyhee County:
"Mrs. Edna Raymond was born in Illinois on October 17, 1849. On October 17, 1939, Mrs. Raymond, residing at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. L. Spangler of 310 Eucalyptus Ave., held open house to 66 friends . . .
"With her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Dairy (sic - also spelled Derry/Deary), and elder brother Jacob, Mrs. Raymond crossed the plains from Illinois to Oregon in 1851 when a child of two. They were among the first to come over the Barlow route over Mr. Hood in Oregon. The winter of 1851-52 the family spent at Oregon City where her younger brother, Basil, was born.
When Basil was less than two months old the family started for Jacksonville, OR - then a mining camp. The only way the trip could be accomplished in those days was by horseback.

Update: 3 March 2002
From: Joan Brown Derry, family member, and Derry family researcher.
(Endnotes for this update are at the bottom of this page)

The new information is on little EDNA D. DAIRY (Deary, Derry), born 17 October 1849, who was adopted by Rev. O. DICKENSON and family. I have been able to track down the following data:

EDNA married PERRY HUME RAYMOND (date unknown). It appears that they were both still in Oregon at this time. They are incorrectly listed in the 1880 OR Census for Albany, Linn Co., as T. H. (should be P.H.) RAYMOND (Postmaster) and ETNA (should be Edna) along with their daughter, ETHEL M. RAYMOND (1 year old).

They had two daughters born to them:

(1) ETHEL M. RAYMOND born 9 May 1879 in Oregon who married ?? BOYD.
Died 28 February 1964 in Los Angeles, California at age 84.

(2) MYRA R. RAYMOND born 4 Nov 1880 in Oregon who married ?? SPANGLER.
Died 26 December 1961 in San Mateo Co., So. San Francisco, CA at age 81.

The Portland Oregon Directories 1890-1891 give the following info:

PERRY H. RAYMOND
Wheeler & Raymond (Business)
129 Salmon (location 1)
Portland, Oregon (1890)

AUGUSTUS F. WHEELER and PERRY H. RAYMOND
Wheeler & Raymond (Business)
105 1st (location 2)
Portland, Oregon (1890)

PERRY H. RAYMOND
Stuart & Thompson (Business)
Clerk
129 Salmon
Portland, Oregon (1891)

In both death notices of the daughters it lists the mother's maiden name as DICKINSON (adopted family).

Yet, in the death of their mother (EDNA) the death records lists her mother's maiden name as PRIBBLE and father's last name as DAIRY.

EDNA's obituary reads:

MRS. EDNA RAYMOND OF S.S.F. PASSES (Times County News Service)

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, April 12 -- Death, following a short illness, this morning summoned MRS. EDNA D. RAYMOND, 93, a long time resident of this city. She passed away at South San Francisco Hospital.

She was the wife of PERRY HUME RAYMOND, and is survived by two daughters, Mrs. MYRA SPANGLER of South San Francisco and Mrs. ETHEL BOYD of Santa Monica. Grandchildren include: RAYMOND L. SPANGLER of Redwood City, ARTHUR S. EVEARTS of San Bruno and Mrs. EDNA S. LINDBURG of South San Francisco. She was a native of Illinois.

Funeral services, under the direction of the Nauman and Muzio mortuary will be held at the Noble Chapel, Cypress Lawn Cemetery, at 11 o'clock Wednesday morning.

San Mateo Times, Monday, April 12, 1943

I did a little more checking on the family of PERRY HUME RAYMOND and discovered this it was HIS father who was named FELIX (ha ha) -- I guess the girls got mixed up with their grandfather's names. Anyway -- this is what I found:

1850 INDIANA CENSUS, SHAWSWICK TWP., LAWRENCE COUNTY

FELIX L. RAYMOND, age 45, tavern keeper, 2,500, born Indiana
Margaret Raymond, age 45, born New York
David C. Raymond, age 17, born Indiana
Samuel K. Raymond, age 16, born Indiana
Eliza J. Raymond, age 14, born Indiana
Mary A. Raymond, age 7, born Indiana
Juliette Raymond, age 5, born Indiana
PERRY H. RAYMOND, age 2, born Indiana

Listed in the same household (probably because it was a tavern) was:

Olivia Shaw, age 20, born New York
William Cortz, age 40, laborer, born Ireland
Levi Murroon, age 50, shoemaker, born ??
Patrick H. Randolph, age 40, printer, born Virginia
Robert F. Crumpton, age 23, brickmaker, born Illinois
James Gordon, age 21, stonecutter, born England
William H. Thompson, age 28, brickmaker, born Kentucky
Michael Reardon, age 30, laborer, born Ireland

...Am trying to find EDNA's descendants to share with them our wonderful family history. How wonderful that a little orphaned girl could have this kind of information found on her.

1881 - See trip wherein his ranch is mention in conjunction with McLafferty. (Avalanche)

1883 August 4 - [The Idaho Avalanche, Saturday, August 4, 1883, Silver City, Idaho Territory, p. 3]:
"A Trip to Camp Three Forks: (A letter to the Editor of The Idaho Avalanche.)
Editor Avalanche:

"A chiel's among ye takin' notes, and, faith he'll print 'em."
"Possibly a few items picked up in a two weeks' ramble in this section of Owyhee may interest some of your readers.
"Your correspondent spent his first night out of Silver (City) at Flint, the guest of a
camping party consisting of Mrs. Sommercamp and family and Mrs. Harley and family.
"A more jolly hospitable party could not have been found and Fred Warnkee as host
and major-domo, appeared at an unusual advantage.
"Nor was the fun abated any by the opportune arrival of Pat Doyle and Jack Byrne,
than whom a livlier pair of cowboys never run in our neck of woods. After supper all
joined in singing and Jordan was made to roll rapidly. The singing concluded, an old-fashioned quadrille was improvised with an excellent vocal accompaniment.
"Next morning, guided by Jack Forst, a short visit was made to Judge Lynam's ranch on Flint. Whenever the gallant judge concludes to abandon the gayeties and frivolties of city life as they present themselves in Silver, he will, doubtless, retire to his ranch, and in a few years become the owner of cattle on a thousand hills. A neat cottage by the roadside gives the ranch a homelike air, that tempted your scribe to picket out his horse and become a granger then and there.
"Bidding Forst and civilization adieu, at this point, we struck southward across the hills to Boulder, and soon discovered that "the solitary horseman", so much used by novelists is no myth, as that identical individual came riding toward us.
"He had ridden up to us and inquired if we had seen anything of a glass-eyed cayuse, branded G O on the git-up side, before we recognized in him the familiar countenance of our ex-Sheriff Stevens. Said he was on his way to his Boulder ranch to serve a venire capias on sundry wagon thimbles.
"Under his guidance a short ride brought us to the Boulder Meadows, and an exciting day's sport with the Boulder trout and whitefish followed.
"Traveler's tales are usually suspicioned, especially where fish is concerned and to save further allusion to the matter, let it be known that during the two weeks' trip, your correspondent caught by actual count exactly eleven thousand six hundred fish, notcounting the chubs. So there.
"Starting when the afternoon sun began to cast ominously long shadows, a ride of some miles brought us at nightfall to the ranch of John and Philip Clegg. We spent several days most agreeably with this hospitable family and then almost reluctantly left them for further journeying.
"On Sunday afternoon we reached McLafferty's ranch on Lonetree Creek, and here for two or three days more, experienced the full meaning of genuine unostentatious hospitality.
"On this ranch, as on all others that we saw, the crop is ine (sic), and everywhere
haymaking is in full progress or completed. Shaw and Whalen, the leasees of this ranch, were busy as bees getting in hay and preparing to harvest the big barley crops which are now beginning to wear the rich, yellow hue of approaching ripeness.
"The anticipated low price of grain for the next few years makes the owner think of
converting his grain land to alfalfa, millett, timothy and other grasses. But the
contemplated erection of a grist mill to Jordan Valley, if effected, may offer a new line of crops for this and neighboring ranches.
"We next visited Jake Deary's ranch at Camp Three Forks. Jake was at home and
made us feel so. Several days were passed pleasantly here chicken-shooting and fishing in the Junipers.
"Jake has up a lot of three-year-old horses, breaking them; they are as pretty as
pictures, as plump as partridges and as shy as deer. Under the skillful handling of Dave Robinet and Tom Smith, however, they are fast settling down to the sober realities of horse life.
"This section seems admirably adapted to horse-raising and does not carry near the
number of horses that might find pasturage.
"A ride of twelve miles southward took us to Cork & Longly's horse-camp on Squaw
Creek, beyond the North Fork of the Owyhee. This region is a veritable equine paradise during the summer season, and some horses wintered there last winter, coming out in good condition in the spring. Our visit to Squaw Creek deserves a separate chapter, but space forbids.
"About noon we reached Cork's camp, a deliciously cool spot under the willows by the side of a bold, clear stream. Lige (sic) Cork, was lying at full length on the grass, with a copy of the Avalanche spread over his face, possibly to keep him cool.
"He soon awoke to the situation, and we were shortly afterward seated to a lunch of hot bread deliciously baked, and a steaming pot of lobscouse. The latter dish was so good that I wanted to get a recipe to send to some noted cooks among our Silver City ladies, but Lige, although he told me the ingredients, made me promise not to give it away, as he proposes to have it patented.
"This region swarms with deer, trout and chickens, and the hunter here has to restrain himself to prevent an over supply of these delicacies.
"It was here we met a real hermit, the venerable Dr. Chaffy. He has eschewed
civilization and says he intends to remain here till the moss grows on his back a foot long, at which time he proposes to emerge a millionaire from the proceeds of his band of horses, after which he will devote the balance of his life to the establishment of horsepitals (sic) for decrepit cayuses.
"This letter would not be complete without an allusion to one night spent at Arthur
O'Keefe's ranch. He was cutting his crop of timothy and will get at least one and a half tons per acres.
"As the writer approached he was driving his mower and smiling all over his face and way down his neck at the rich green swaths that fell behind the knife. He is justly proud of his ranch.
"There are a number of ranches in the southwestern part of Owyhee County waiting to be taken up, some of which offer golden opportunities to young men just starting out in life. See to it boys.
"In conclusion, one word as to the hospitality of our country cousins in South Owyhee.
Old-fashioned southern hospitality and California hospitality are proverbial, but for
genuine, hearty kindness to travelers the section we visited is not excelled anywhere on earth. One is made perfectly at home everywhere. The folks down there are all prosperous and that they deserve prosperity is the hearty verdict of . . . R."

1893 March 17 - [Owyhee County Courthouse, Murphy, Idaho: List filed March 17, 1893, by Robert Leonard, Jr., Clerk of the Board of Commissioners]:
"List of Persons Liable for Road Poll Tax - (De Lamar) District No. 2"
Included on the list was: "Jake Deary".
(NOTE: There are 329 names on this list, all in the same hand writing. Of the names, 125 are separately listed as "Men employed at the De Lamar Mine & Mill". Of those 125 names, eight are Chinese. For the complete list, see WP file, "DeLamar - Dist. 2 - List of Pers. Liable for Poll Tax - 1893".)

1960 January 18 - [The following is taken from "The Idaho Daily Statesman, Mon. Morning, Jan. 18, 1960", copied from written information supplied by Matt Deary of Kuna, ID, April 17, 1988]:
". . . The DeLamar Nugget -- saved since the day it was published on March 10, 1899, by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur C. Lee, who now live at 615 Hays Street in Boise, gives some idea of life and conditions in the town (DeLamar) at that time. (See note below regarding these newspapers.) Mrs. Lee saved the paper because it contains on the first page, the story of the death of her father, Jacob Deary, which in itself, gives an insight into conditions at the time. The story, however, fails to mention the fact that Mr. Deary played an active and important part in Owyhee's battles with the Indians in his role as a scout for the volunteer 'army', hastily organized when large bands of Bannocks invaded the area in 1878. The story of Mr. Deary's death says in part: 'On account of the snow blockade last week, the news of the demise of Jacob Deary did not reach the Nugget until too late for making mention. He ended his long and patiently born suffering at Silver City on the 27th inst. Mr. Deary had long been a prominent resident and stock grower in the southwestern portion of the county and one of those substantial citizens whose integrity won for him the respect and esteem of all with whom he had dealings. Until about 2 years ago, he lived at the old Three Forks military station on the southside of South Mountain, but, to better care for his family, he purchased and removed to the John Clegg ranch, on Lone Tree creek, near the home of his partner and long time friend, Mr. Dennis Driscoll. A few weeks ago he was removed to Silver City for more convenient medical care and attendance . . . Deceased left a wife and five young children. He had so arraged his affairs some time ago, that the administration of his estate will be attended only with trifling trouble and expense, by transferring all of his real and personal estate to his wife."

Jacob Deary's parents died when he was quite young, and Jacob stayed with Mr. towner Savage, at whose house his father died. See notes on Edna Deary.

[NOTE regarding Nugget Newspapers: Bob Lee, son of Arthur Lee, said that she indeed had all of the newspapers, but that he thought they were loaned or given to Arthur Hart, and I quote: "Some things went south when he was there." He may have expressed Arthur Hart meaning the ISHS. However, these newspapers are not on microfilm at the ISHS library. He also said he wasn't sure. A photo of Camp Winthrop had been borrowed by Art, but ended up at ISHS and not returned to the Lees. Wilma Statham returned his photo for him.]
