      4th US Infantry History 1848 - 1861
      The end of 1848 saw the Regiment at various posts and forts with Headquarders and Companies C and E at Detroit, Company A at Fort Mackinaw, Michigan, and Companies G and K at Fort Gratiot,
      Michigan. The remaining companies were in New York with Company B at Fort Niagara, Companies D and I at Madison Barracks, F at Fort Ontario, and H at Plattsburg Barracks.
      In June of 1852 the companies were assembled at Governor's Island. In July the Regiment, except for Companies A and I, embarked by sea for Central America. On August 19th the Regiment, except for
      Companies A, B, and I, arrived at Benicia, California. Company B arrived at Benicia in late August. Companies A and I left New York on the 20th of November, 1852. After spending the first part of 1853
      in Central America, Companies A and I arrived in San Francisco on June 19th, 1853. During the move to California the Fourth suffered heavily from cholera, fever,and other disease, losing 1 officer and over
      100 enlisted men. When the regiment was ordered west the regimental commander, 80 year old Colonel William Whistler, was left behind. It is not know if he was left behind due to his advanced age or due to his heavy drinking
      (he once threw a case of books off a regimental baggage train \endash feeling that the space was better used for a case of Whiskey.) Commissioned in 1801, he had commanded the regiment for 15 years. His nephew
      was the famous painter James Abbott McNeill Whistler (Whistler's Mother). While on the West coast, companies from the Fourth U.S. Infantry participated in several battles and
      skirmishes including Red Bluffs, California (March 1852), the first Rogue River <./battles/rogue1.html> campaign (August 1853), Brannans's Prairie, Washington Territory (December, 1855), White River, Washington Territory
      (1856), the second Rogue River <./battles/rogue2.html> campaign (March - May), 1855, and the Pig Island (San Juan Island) <./battles/sanjuan.html> war (August 1859 - April, 1860).
      During 1855, about 300 Indians of the Umpqua tribe and about 200 of the Calapooya tribe were moved to a newly formed Indian reservation in central Oregon (approx. 30 miles west of Salem) named Grand
      Ronde. Plans were also made to move the friendly bands of the Rogue Indian tribes from the area surrounding Fort Lane to this new reservation the following March. A military post was established at
      this reservation in July and named Fort Yamhill. Company F, Fourth US was stationed at Fort Yamhill from July of 1856 until the summer of 1857 when they were sent to Fort Hoskins. Company K, Fourth
      US Infantry was stationed at Fort Yamhill from August of 1857 until they left for San Pedro, California in June of 1861.
      During the spring and summer of 1861 companies of the Regiment moved from their posts, first to San Francisco, then Fort Sumner. Company A from Fort Chehalis; Company C from Fort Townsend; Companies
      F and G from Fort Hoskins; H from Fort Cascades; I from Fort Mojave (Company I moving to San Diego); Company K from Fort Yamhill; and Headquarters from Fort Dalles. Starting in August, companies A, D, F,
      G, and K moved from the San Francisco area to San Bernardino. In October, Headquarters and companies A, D, F, G, H, and K all arrived in San Pedro.
      Of the officers on duty with the Fourth Infantry (or recently with the Fourth) only five resigned to join the rebellion.

      Fort Yamhill
      (1855 - 1866), Valley Junction, Dayton

      http://www.prd.state.or.us/masterplans_ftyamhill.php

      The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) are working in a cooperative effort to develop a master plan for two properties associated with Historic Fort Yamhill. During the past year, OPRD and the Tribe have been examining potential options to eventually open the fort to the general public. Through this master planning process, we are working to develop appropriate educational and recreational facilities on the site by 2006, the 150th anniversary of the fort's establishment.
      The overriding theme of the master plan will be to interpret and develop the site in a manner that will place Fort Yamhill within the larger context of the history of Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and other ancestral Native Americans. Interpretive themes will explain to visitors the stories and experiences of the Tribes before and after they arrived at the reservation.
      Fort Yamhill State Historic Site (approximately 55 acres) is in northern Polk County, about 2 miles north of Spirit Mountain Casino:
      Although OPRD has owned the property since 1989, development of the site has not yet occurred. Recently, the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde acquired a key parcel (113 acres) associated with the historic fort site. This acquisition has set the stage for facility development and public access.



      Settlers first built a blockhouse on what became known as Fort Hill. The Army arrived in 1856 and renamed it. Only the blockhouse remains, which was moved in 1911 to a city park in Dayton.

      FORT YAMHILL MASTER PLAN HISTORY
      http://www.prd.state.or.us/masterplans_ftyamhill_history.php
      The site has a long, interesting history. The Yamhill band of the Kalapuyas lived in the South Yamhill River Valley, long before European settlers came and long before the Coast Indian Reservation was established in 1856. The Fort was one of three "reservation forts" established in Oregon after the Grand Ronde Reservation was created; the other two were Fort Hoskins and Fort Umpqua. These forts, plus the Siletz Blockhouse outpost, served as a kind of buffer zone between the settlers and Native American people, protecting both populations and controlling traffic between them.
      A cultural assessment and field survey, conducted in 1991, revealed the location of major buildings that once occupied the site - at least 24. The Fort included a sentry box, officers' quarters, barracks, carpenter's shop, blacksmith shop, hospital, cook houses, stables, barn, sutler's store, laundress quarters and more. Famed Civil War General Philip H. Sheridan, then a 2nd Lieutenant, supervised the construction of some buildings at Fort Yamhill. The noteworthy wooden blockhouse used as a jail, survives today. In 1911 it was moved to the town of Dayton, where it still stands. Perhaps the most fascinating and enigmatic structure at the site is an abandoned house, purportedly once the home of Lt. Sheridan. That bit of folklore cannot be verified, but what is certain is that the house encases relocated remains of one of the Fort's officers quarters.
      At the start of the Civil War, troops of the 4th California Infantry were quartered at Fort Yamhill, enduring a rather dull existence while the "regular army" was fighting the sporadic battles that characterized the western Civil War. The Fort was abandoned and disassembled in 1866, and its buildings auctioned off to the public. The government did not fare well in the proceedings: buildings that cost $36, 053 to build were sold for a paltry $1,260 in 1866. The blockhouse itself was sold for the whopping sum of $2.50. For the next 121 years, the land was farmed, and it remained in private hands until it was acquired by both State Parks and the Tribe. [31]

      Dear Mr. Kelly

      Our new online database research system is a facility for those wishing to research their family ancestry using the Irish Family History Foundation centres' databases. These unique databases have been compiled by the individual centres at great cost and many have taken over 20 years to complete. All centres also offer a full, fee based, research service for clients who wish to have their research conducted by a professional researcher. The genealogical centres are not for profit organizations and use income to fund further work, to keep their centre running so they can
      offer a research service to those who seek it, etc. Also permission to
      compile the index/databases was given under certain conditions by the owners of the records. No centre has the original sources which are normally in the custody of the local parish; the National Library of Ireland which holds microfilmed copies of the majority of the RC parish registers also does not have permission to offer a digitized image of the original record.

      Our database is for family historians searching their own family ancestry and, as such, they should know within 8 years of a particular birth, marriage or death. Our search facility gives 4 years on either side of a given date and; therefore if you type in the surname, first name and year you will know if any matching records are on the database within the timeframe. For those who wish to carry out their own research the original sources are available in the National Library of Ireland and various other repositories. However, there are many people who wish to access the information on their ancestry via databases where the work has been done on their behalf so to speak.

      If we can generate enough income we hope to be in a position to complete work on those parts of Ireland that have not been done so far. The transcription and computerization of these many millions of records is not economically viable and so needs to be done by volunteers and trainee workers. The site you referred to Footnote.com has obviously cost a lot of
      money to put in place and run.

      This is a new initiative and we will be monitoring all comments that we receive regarding the site and its ongoing development from our customers.
      We plan to place all our member counties' records online as well as a central site with all records.

      I hope that you will stay in touch with our site.


      Yours sincerely

      The Secretary
