Mann, Socrates C. (Crate) – Obituary

“Crate” Mann Takes Own Life At Baker Home Socrates C. (Crate) Mann, committed suicide, by hanging, at his home, 1600 Sixth street, Baker, sometime during the afternoon Saturday of last week. The body was found hanging in the garage at six o’clock by Mrs. Mann who went in search of her husband when he failed to return to the house at that time in the evening.

He began life in eastern Oregon as a sheep herder. At the time of his death, he owned some of the best farms in this district and was regarded as one of the wealthiest men in the Powder River valley. Mr. Mann was born in Plainfield, Vermont, December 13, 1856 and came to Oregon in 1877. He worked for ranchers and stock men for a number of years.

The deceased is survived by his widow, Mrs. Ellen E. Mann; one daughter, Mrs. Paul E. Childers of The Dalles; one son, Leo of North Powder. Funeral services were...

Biography of Perley Oscar Folsom

PERLEY OSCAR FOLSOM, active in business and politics at Cushman, Massachusetts, in the town of Amherst, was born in Marshfield, Vermont, March 28, 1882. The name he bears appears first in history in the first half of the fourteenth century. John Foulsham, of Foulsham, was prior of a Carmelite Monastery in Warwick, England. He was a prominent ecclesiastic; and his brother, Richard Foulsham, was even more prominent. The word foule (fowl) signified bird, and the country seat of Foulsham probably took its name from its being the home (ham) of many foules (birds). (I) The first traceable ancestor of the immigrant, John Foulsham, is Roger Foulsham, of Necton, County of Norfolk, England, whose will is dated 1534. (II) William Foulsham, son of Roger Foulsham, married Agnes Smith, alias Foulsham, of Besthorpe. (III) Adam Foulsham, son of William and Agnes (Smith) Foulsham, owned lands in Besthorpe, Wymondham (Windham), Bunwell, Hingham and Hockford. (IV) Adam Foulsham, son of Adam and Emma Foulsham, baptized in 1560, resided in Hingham and owned lands in Besthorpe. He died in 1630. (V) Adam Foulsham, son of Adam and Grace Foulsham, known as Adam of Hingham, died in 1627. His will, made in that year, named three sons, John, Adam and Peter. His wife’s name was Agnes. (VI) John Foulsham, son of Adam and Agnes Foulsham, was baptized in Hingham in 1615. He was the first John Foulsham to come to America, and from him all the Folsoms in America are descended with the exception of one family found in South Carolina. The ship “Diligent,” of Ipswich, England, John Martin, master, set sail from the mouth...
