Butler E. Marble was born in 1794 in Winchester, Cheshire County, New Hampshire, the son of Joseph Marble and Susannah Elizabeth Butler. Typical of families seeking a better living, they moved to Oswego County, New York, and when Butler reached adulthood he married Martha, the mother of his son Ansil. She died soon afterwards and Butler remarried on May 16, 1840, in Ogle or Lee County, Illinois. His bride was forty year old Mary Matilda Laws Crawford, a widow with a teenaged daughter.

In the spring of 1852, the Marble family joined a wagon train bound for Oregon. The party included Ansil, who was now twenty-one years old and married, and Mary's daughter Anne and her husband the Rev. James Alexander and their family. They arrived in Oregon Territory on November 16, 1852 and lived in Portland until 1854 when they moved to a 320 acre Donation Land Claim in Clark ...   [ Read more » ]

Storm Water Detention Pond, Butler E Marble DLC

Storm water Detention Pond, Latitude 45.661601, Longitude -122.667342, Source: http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html Stormwater Detention Pond Clark County Public Works Clean Water Program BBCDISC site in Discovery Park near the stream crossing of NW Alki Road A detention pond is a low lying area that is designed to temporarily hold a set amount of water while slowly draining to another location. They are more or less around for flood control when large amounts of rain could cause flash flooding if not dealt with properly. Water Detention Pond, by definition, detains water. When an area is paved, or covered with a building, water runs off the property much faster than when it is in a natural state. The total amount of discharge is the same, but the discharge happens over a shorter amount of time. A hydrologist will design a water detention pond to temporarily detain the water and keep the runoff to the desired rate. When the rain ends, though, the water detention pond will be empty shortly afterwards.

"Those Who Dared" by Marianne Marble Van House

 

 

Early pioneers, the Marble family made important contributions to the development of Clark County

 

I hear the tread of pioneers

Of nations yet to be –

The first low wash of waves where soon

Shall roll a human sea.

 

Anonymous, c. 1865

 

Once the “Fifty-four forty or fight” problem was settled and the Donation Land Act passed Congress on September 27, 1850, allowing a husband and wife, for a filing fee of $10.00, to homestead 640 acres of free land in the northwest, no tract of prairie, however bleak, could check the restless westerly urge for adventure, for another chance, for a better future which brought a rush of settlers to establish land claims in the Oregon Territory.

 

The big year on the Oregon Trail was 1852. This “Great Migration” year brought enormous numbers of pioneers to the Oregon Territory, a “human sea” esti...   [ Read more » ]

Butler Emery Marble’s Sawmill Location on Burnt Bridge Creek

Butler Emery Marble's Sawmill location on Burnt Bridge Creek

Butler Emery Marble's Sawmill location as per the Survey Map of Township 2 North, Range 1 East, Willamette Meridian, surveyed 14 Feb 1860 by Lewis Van Vleet, is downstream, just west of where Cold (Canyon) Creek and Burnt Bridge Creek unite forming more turbulent waters. Van Vleet's 1860 Survey Map shows the water backed up or collected, as though there was a dam at Military Road, (Present day, Hazel Dell Avenue). A marking on the 1860 map distinctly says, "Saw Mill".
