ELBRIDGE TRASK'S daughter, EUDORA, was my husband's paternal g-g grandmother
EUDORA TRASK, daughter of ELBRIDGE and HANNAH ABELL TRASK, wed WILLIAM MARTIN SUMMERS, SR. Their son, WILLIAM MARTIN SUMMERS, JR. wed MINNIE ELIZABETH ROSS in 1892. One of their sons, ELMO MARTIN SUMMERS wed THELMA MERLE POOLER 1924. One of their sons, DEAN MARTIN SUMMERS wed ORA AMARYLIS DEATHERAGE-CURTIS in 1948. Their second son, ROBERT LON SUMMERS married me 1977.
We have located the following headstones in Oregon: DEAN, ELMO, THELMA, WILLIAM JR., WILLIAM SR., EUDORA & ELBRIDGE. HANNAH is said to be in the Old Empire Cemetery in what is now North Bend, Oregon...just north of Coos Bay. Sadly, the land was given to the local Indian tribes years ago with the written stipulation that they must keep it up & in good repair. They have ignored that and let it go to ruin, fencing it off and padlocked so that nobody can get in. Several of the resting places have slipped into the sea due to storms and ZERO upkeep of the grounds.
