Note*Eva Mae Damon was born 20, April 1881, in Bradford, Stark County,Illinois. She died, 03, September 1964 in St. Augustine, St. JohnsCounty, Florida, and is buried at Sumner Cemetery, Valley and 23rd NorthEast, Sumner, Pierce County, Washington, U.S.A. She resided in Madison,Dane County, Wisconsin and then in Seattle and yet again in 'BarnetShores', St. Augustine, St. Johns County, Florida. She used to say shewas related to Brewster on the Mayflower. (Not confirmed!) She was the daughter Therisa Jane Warren and James Hartson Mehner fromSearsport, Waldo County, Maine. Her only sibling was Warren G. Damon(1888-1930), later the editor of the Mohave County Miner in Kingman,Mohave County, Arizona. After her first husband, Albert Hugo Mehner, died 15, June 1904, shemarried Theodore M. Barnett and resided in 'Barnet Shores', St.Augustine, St. Johns County, Florida. The account above was contributed by Robert David Mehner, Sr., theirfourth son. She was a business woman in Seattle; She was perhaps the first licensedRealtor in Seattle in about 1935. At one time she owned apartment houseson Broadway Avenue and throughout Capital Hill, etc. She was wealthy inher own right. Her first husband was Albert Hugo Mehner who was an immigrant fromGermany. Later, he became a science professor at the University ofWashington. He was ill with heart disease. He was bedridden for severalyears in the 1930's and died April 2, 1939. She was a devout Christian, a member of the Westminster PresbyterianChurch, Harvard Avenue and Howell Street, Seattle. Rev. Robert T.McFarlane was the Pastor. While Albert was still alive, Eva was witnessing to Theodore 'Ted'Barnett from Skid Row. She brought him home and :cleaned him up'; Albertfinally asked him to leave the house. After Albert died, Eva found Ted again and married him about 1940. Tedwas perhaps 25 years younger than Eva. Ted often collected the rentsfrom her apartments, etc. People didn't seem to like him. In about 1945, Eva suffered a stroke on one side. She couldn't talk orwalk. She remained alert mentally. Her second husband, Ted did seem tocare for her during these years. All four of her boys 'disowned' her for eight years. Interestingly, Tedcouldn't collect Social Security because he never held a job. In about 1947, Ted convinced Eva to sell the apartments and buy a 100acre island (Barnett's Camatchie Resort) off the nearby city of SaintAugustine, Florida. En route, Ted and Eva stopped by their son Karl's home in Montana. (seeletter of Nov. 30, 1949!) They lived on the island in Florida and sold portions of it off. Eva had red hair, even after she was grey, she dyed her hair red for therest of her life! She lost an eye to an infection in 1949 (see letterdated Nov. 30, 1949). See photo of Ted and Eva dated 1948, also of Ted and Eva with dog`Laddie'. She died Sept. 3, 1964 at 'Barnett's Acres' in St. Augustine, Florida.Ted was still living; the four boys paid to have her body brought back toSumner for burial but requested that Ted stay in Florida. TheOfficiating Minister at the funeral home was her pastor many yearsearlier in Seattle (Rev. Robert T. McFarlane of the WestminsterPresbyterian Church). She is buried in the Sumner Cemetery. - Sheila (Mehner) Snoozy, 1998. The statement below was copied from a rough draft tribute for funeralservice: Eva D. Mehner Barnett, age 83, Born in Stark, Illinois: moved to Tacomaas a child, she taught in the Firn Hill School District until hermarriage to Albert H. Mehner in 1904. After living in Ellensburg andBremerton, they moved to Seattle in 1927, where she resided on CapitalHill for many years. Mr. Mehner passed away in 1939. She was one of thefirst women realtors in Seattle, having her own office in the BroadwayDistrict, and was also a member of the Real Estate Board. She was amember of the Westminster Presbyterian Church. She married TheodoreBarnett in 1943, and then moved to St. Augustine, (St. Johns County)Florida in 1951, where they had since made there home. The statement below is copied from a news paper clipping that is Eva'sscrapbook: Friday, August 13, 1948. The closing of what is perhaps Capital hill's oldest real estate officeis being announced this week. Saying, she seeks a complete change ofclimate and future, Eva D. Mehner is closing the real estate office whichbears her name to make her future home in Florida. Nineteen years ago Eva D. Mehner started her real estate business in herhome at 420 18th Ave. N. After taking out the required license andinstalling a main telephone. 'Right away, I started to avail myself ofCapital Hill Times advertising and have been a consistent customerthroughout the years,' she remarked this week. 'I have made manyexcellent deals through the columns of our local newspapers.' Five years ago took the Barnetts to St. Augustine, Florida, where theybought a 102 acre island between St. Augustine and the ocean front. It is to this Florida island that the Barnett's plan to move. They areenthusiastic about their new home where they say 'there is a 12 roomhouse, a private causeway, with plans for a cruiser base, fishing boats,motels and other concessions for the island. Mr. and Mrs. Barnett are members of the Seattle Real Estate Board,Seattle Chamber of Commerce, and the Capital Hill Commercial Club. Nowthey say they are members of the St. Augustine Chamber of Commerce. 'We have a good business here but we want a complete change of climateand experiences. We belive that Seattle and St. Augustine are the oneand only cities, and we welcome our northwest friends to visit our sunnyCamatchie Island, near St. Augustine, Florida, temperatures of 70degrees.' The Barnett's plan the close of the Eva D. Mehner officeSaturday afternoon. More notes below: Eva Mae Damon was born April 20, 1881 in Bradford, Stark County,Illinois. She was the daughter of Theresa Jane Warren and James HartsonDamon from Searsport, Maine. Her only sibling was Warren G. Damon(1888-1930), later the editor of the Mohave County Miner in Kingman,Arizona. We have often wondered if she is related to the famous Dr. John F. Damon,the famous Congregational 'Marrying Parson' of the Washington Territory.Being a Congregationalist, he probably was from New England (Eva's familywas from Maine). John Damon pioneered churches in Port Townsend, Seattleand Winslow. We know that Eva Damon lived in York, Nebraska in June of 1888 because wehave her third grade report card! (92% in 'scholarship and 95% in'deportment'!) Her brother Warren was born in York in 1888. We also know that her brother Warren (7 years younger) was sellingnewspapers at an early age in Seattle, Tacoma and Portland. We wouldassume Eva Mae was in those northwest cities with her family, also. She was educated in Tacoma, WA schools. She also taught school in theFern Hill (Tacoma) schools. She met her husband Albert Hugo Mehner in Tacoma, WA. Albert had comefrom Burkhardtsdorf (Near Chemnitz), Germany with his parents in 1880 atthe age of 3. Before moving to the Puget Sound area, the Mehners hadlived in Mount Vernon, Knox Co. Ohio. The family were living inBremerton, but Albert graduated from Tacoma High School in 1900. (livingin a boardinghouse? with family? commute on the 'mosquito fleet'? Theywere married June 18, 1904 in Tacoma. Albert worked his way through the University of Washington from ages23-27. They moved to Anchorage Alaska (where Albert taught High School.) Their oldest son Karl was born there. Albert and Eva moved to Ellensburg, WA where he taught at the EllensburgHigh School and Central Washington College. Warren and Hartson were bornin Ellensburg. Eva attended the Ellensburg Normal School. After their youngest son Robert was born in 1918 in Bremerton, theMehners moved to Seattle where Albert was a Science Professor at his AlmaMater, the U of W. Albert developed a serious heart ailment in the 1930's His wife, Eva Mae became perhaps the first licensed woman Realtor inSeattle in about 1928. At one time she owned apartment houses onBroadway and throughout Capital Hill, etc. She owned the Eva D. MehnerRealty at 204 Broadway. She had begun her business in her home at 42018th Ave. N. 'after taking out the required licence and installing amain telephone'. She was a realtor on Capitol Hill for 19 years. Albert Hugo Mehner declined in health throughout the 1930's. He wasbedridden for several years. She was a devout Christian; a member of the Westminster PresbyterianChurch, Harvard Ave. and Howell Streets, Seattle. Rev. Robert T.McFarlane was her Pastor. According to Sheila Snoozy, Eva's granddaughter, while Albert was stillalive, Eva was ministering as a volunteer at a Seattle Rescue Mission onSkid Row. She met Theodore 'Ted' Barnett. (he was a lifelong residentof Seattle and 21 years her junior!). She brought him home and 'cleanedhim up'. Soooo---this devout, sweet Presbyterian realtor reached out to the downand out easy-going new convert. She gave him a job collecting rents forher Capitol Hill properties. He became her driver. --in fact, sheactually gave him a place to stay until her husband Albert kicked him out. Albert died of heart disease April 2, 1939. Eva married Ted Barnett in1943. Ted became her helper in the Real Estate business on Capitol Hill,Seattle. Ted wanted Eva to dye her hair red--she had red hair for therest of her life! All four of her boys 'disowned' her for eight years. Interestingly, Tedcouldn't collect Social Security because he never held a job. They livedon her social security check and investments for the rest of both oftheir lives. In 1948, Eva and Ted lived at 536 33rd South, Seattle, justsouth of Frink Park in the Madrona District. In August of 1948, she announced on the front page of the Capitol HillTimes that she was selling her real estate business and moving to St.Augustine, Florida, where they had purchased in 1947 a 102 acre island'Barnett's Camatchie Island Resort' (now spelled Camachee Island). Thebeautiful island is 2 miles northeast of downtown St. Augustine at thewest end of the Villano Beach Bridge. The island included an old 12 roomhome that had been owned by Judge Dunham at the east end of a causewayjoining Atlantic St. on the mainland. The causeway was removed by theTaylor brothers after 1976. Since Ted and Eva moved to the Florida Island in the summer of 1948, itmust have been a shock when the late fall hurricane season arrived! Thecauseway was not always passable during high tide and stormy weather.The house took a real beating. Also, they were taking care of an elderlywoman named Alice ____ who died of cancer in 1949. According to Eva's letter of Nov 27, 1949, a speck of plaster with limein it got into her eye while she was cleaning up from remodeling andrepair. After several days of agony 'the eye burst!' On Sunday, Oct 31,Eva and Ted went to church (Memorial Presbyterian) with her son Karl whowas visiting from Montana? Washington? En route to Florida, Ted and Evahad stopped by their son Karl's home in Montana.) After church, they atedinner at their restaurant on Camatchie Island. This restaurant had been built the year they arrived under Ted'sdirection. It was boat shaped with a basement just west of the 2 piersthat anchored the west terminus of the Villano Beach bridge (replacedwith the Francis and Mary Usina Bridge in 1976.) The 2 old piers arestill there near the entrance to the present restaurant. A realtor friend of Ted and Eva's named Ann Hopkins (red hair and in her80's! of Ann Hopkins Realty in St. Augustine) told John and Nancy Ruhlmanin 1999 that 'Ted always wasted lots of money and whatever he toucheddidn't do nothing! It was such a waste. He talked Eva into spending hermoney on the cement block restaurant building, but the restaurant didn'tdo nothing. One of the walls was in modern glass block walls! The bigold house at the east end of the causeway was damaged by hurricanes andfloods so Ted and Eva moved into a cement and brick building about 100ft. from the restaurant. Little apartments were behind the restaurant.' 'Eva worked as a realtor in St. Augustine way into her 70's, buying andselling houses. (She bought a house in Ravenwood on Spring St; bought amotel on Anastasia Island; bought 7 1/2 lots on Villano Beach, etc.)they moved from the big white house on the middle west of the island to acement block and brick building with an inside glass brick wall 100 ft.from the restaurant that Ted had built in the shape of a boat. Behindthe restaurant were apartments where the young couple who ran therestaurant lived.' 'Eva had sparkling eyes; she communicated with them even after herstroke. I (Ann Hopkins her realtor friend) would often come by and bringEva sweets (which she loved). When I would get after Ted for notcleaning the floors, etc., Eva's eyes would say 'yes, go for it'!' According to Ann, there was a dichotomy: 'Ted was like a kid and she(Eva) did whatever he wanted; Eva was a 'soft touch' with him.Everything got wasted by Ted. Interestingly, he minded her; whatever shesaid 'do', he'd do it. He liked to build and she let him do it (with hermoney)'. --Ann Hopkins, February, 1999. Ted's business card in 1949 showed his grandiose dreams for the island:'Barnett's Camatchie Island Resort, St. Augustine Florida- Rooms withbath, famous southern fried chicken and steak dinners, sandwiches andcold drinks, boats for hire, oyster roasts, playgrounds, picnic tables,good fishing and crabbing. Fred Von Eberstein, Sr. mgr.' According toAnn Hopkins, a young couple ran the restaurant and their baby died duringthis time. The Capital Hill Times quoted Ted's plans for the island including 'acruiser base, fishing boats, motels and other concessions for the island.' Eva's granddaughter, Nancy Mehner Ruhlman, spoke to Dorothy Mehner, Eva'sson Karl's wife in February, 1999 (Dorothy is living at 2702 SoundviewDrive, W., Tacoma, WA.): 'We moved nearby to Ted and Eva in St.Augustine for about six months. Karl built a little 'in and outdrive-in' on highway AlA and we lived in a little cabin on the beach, butI hated it! We had my 11 year old daughter (Diane) at the time. Ted andEva had a restaurant built with a place to live in the back. Ted wasn't'all there'; she got him at the mission (in Seattle) to be her driver.Eva could sell anything--even at age 75 when we were there. She had aheart of gold and was very kind--but a bit 'odd ball.' 'They couldn't get anybody to make a go of the restaurant because Ted andEva wouldn't allow a liquor license. She didn't care a hoot aboutcleaning house; that was Ted's job! They got behind in taxes (propertytaxes?) and got deeper and deeper in debt. Ted allowed Albert's (Eva'sfirst husband) seaweed slides to be in the sun and they were ruined.Albert Mehner was an ichthyologist (study of sea life) at the Universityof Washington in the 1920's and 30's. Mildred, Eva's son Warren's wifewould tell Eva and Ted what she thought in no uncertain terms' 'After her stroke in about 1962 (Eva had a stroke, heart disease anddiabetes!), Ted brought her to Seattle. When she arrived, she was sorelyin need of a bath; Karl and Dorothy put her in the tub; she still had thedied red hair! Since she could not function or talk, she was at Ted'smercy. To his credit, he did take care of her until she died Sept. 3,1964, in St. Augustine. He was living off her social security.'--Dorothy Home (Quinn) Mehner, Feb. 1999 See photo of Ted and Eva with dog 'Tipper'. 'Her four sons paid to have her body brought to Sumner for burial butrequested that Ted stay in Florida. The Officiating Minister at thefuneral home was her pastor many years earlier in Seattle (Rev. Robert T.McFarlane of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, Harvard Ave. andHowell.) She is buried in the New Sumner Cemetery, Sumner, WA.' --Sheila Snoozy (Eva's granddaughter), 1998 After Eva's death Ted lived 15 more years. When he became ill, AnnHopkins took care of him; he entered a nursing home and passed awayJanuary 20, 1979 in St. Augustine. Ann Hopkins said 'he choked to death'. The statement below was copied from a rough draft tribute for Eva'sfuneral service. 'Eva D. Mehner Barnett, age 83, Born in Stark, Illinois: moved to Tacomaas a child, she taught in the Fern Hill School District until hermarriage to Albert H. Mehner in 1904.

By 1888, they were living in York, Nebraska, where their son Warren G.Damon was born. We have a report card for his daughter Eva Mae Damonfrom York Public Schools, where she was in the third grade in June, 1888.(She averaged 92% in 'scholarship' and 95% in 'deportment'!) It wassigned by her mother, 'T.J.Damon'. By 1913, James Hartson lived near Waldo, Oregon (Josephine Co.)--Interestingly enough, his wife, Theresa Jane Warren was born in WaldoCounty MAINE! We have a photo of James Hartson panning for gold inWaldo, Oregon. It should be known that this area around Cave Junction,Oregon, is called the 'Illinois Valley'.

Left to his wife Reana' over and besides the part of the estate which I received with her uppon my mariage to her' 40 shillings a year for live, paid 1.2 in fruits and 1/2 in wheat. Household goods equally divided amongst 5 children. Gave his cousin Anna Newcomen a cow, and Elder Frost 40 shillings. To his daughter Eliz Fanning 50 pounds in cattle and corne, to 3 youngest children 50 pounds each at age 21, or a year after mariage. Remainder he left to his sone Samuel; executor with Thomas Fanning, son in law and friends Richard Jacson and Thomas Danforth. Executers were to pay yearly 5 pounds each to his sone Joseph, daughters Sarah and Mary in corn or cattle. His signature showed a readable hand. Witnessed by Jonathon Shepard and Thomas Danforth. The inventory showed a mansion house, orchard, 26cultivated land 24 acres uncultivated 2 acres meadow, 4 acres salt meadow2 acres remote meadow, 4 acres Chesters meadow 65 acres remote dividents (sic) 29 acres beyond the great plain, 7 acres remote meadow with the value estimated at 160 pounds. He left some books: The soul's Conflict, a book by Mason, others by Rogers, Giffords, and Mathers, a psalm book, and a great bible. The usual suits, cloaks, pants, shoes, musket, sword, fowling piece, hour glass, oxen cows calves colt etc. The estate was divided 14 Jun 1722. He died on 6 Jul 1655 in Cambridge, Middlesex Co., and MA. Arrived in America prior to July. 25, 1636 when Robert was granted 25 acres at Watertown, MA where he settled. Granted 5 lots. Purchased the home stall of Nicholas Jacobs: 13Acres near a later U.S. Arsenal. Admitted freeman 14 mar 1638/1639. Moved to Cambridge in 1651. Released from training Apr 1655. His son Samuel came with him, but daughter Elizabeth (age 2) came with her maternal grandfather. It may be supposed that this arrangement was made due to the recent or expected birth of son Thomas about 1635. A constable at Watertown in 1651, he removed to Cambridge about 1654, possibly encouraged by both his second marriage and the following entries in the Watertown records: 'at a meeting of the Selectmen the 8/4/1654 Rebert Geneson and John Knap Complaining that Robert Daniell that hee Did not fence his pportion within their feild -- It Did appeere by testymony of Mr whitny and his owne Confession that all his Land was by his owne act in a generall feild with them and hee Could not make it appeere that he hath taken himsefe orderly out The sentance of the Select men is that wher as it Dooth apeere that Robert Daniel hath a paffell of Land within their feeld Containing 8 or 10 akers mor or Les, that he shal fence it by equall pportion with the rest of the Comoners.'

Benjamin Darby Sr.1

M, #12478, b. 1744, d. 3 March 1844
Last Edited5 Sep 2012
Biographical Note* Benjamin was the progenitor of the Island Darbys. He was a loyalist from Newburg, New York, according to family tradition, from Rhode Island, according to Ada MacLeod. (a) He settled in St. Eleanors shortly after William Schurman settled in Central Bedeque, and, like him, was for a time a member of the provincial legislature. He died March 3, 1844, aged 100, according to his gravestone. He was twice married. By his first wife, whose name we do not know, he had at least two children, Elizabeth and Mary. He married as his second wife Mrs. Sarah Bremble (ca. 1758-1825 (b)), a widow with several daughters (one of whom, Mary, married Peter Schurman, eldest son of William Schurman the Loyalist), and with her had George, Benjamin, Isaac, Netus, Lois (called Lucy), Deborah, Esther, Hannah, Susannah, and perhaps others. (c)

Footnotes:
(a) "Some Loyalists of Prince Edward Island" in the Dalhousie Review, October 1930, p.328.

(b) The year given on Sarah's gravestone, immediately behind the St. Eleanors Anglican Church, is almost illegible and looks like 1822 than anything else; but he death notice appeared in the register for Friday, June 3, 1825.
