Notes:

1847 Joseph Smith with his wife and five children traveled west from IL, stopping at the Whitman Mission to rest and obtain supplies.  They became involved in the Whitman Massacre.  After being rescued they stayed for a time in Oregon City, OR; c.1849 Joseph went to CA seeking gold.  He reportedly obtained enough funds to send for his family and start a hotel in San Francisco .  They remained there until the gold fever started to abate and then they returned to their old home in IL where they stayed for a few years before returning to CA and then, finally, to Oregon; it appears that Joseph was married first to an unknown woman who would have been the mother of his four or five oldest children; he then married Hannah Shambrook sometime right before heading west.

   PHILLIP E. DRANE has been engaged in the general merchandise business in Coquille for eleven years and during that time has built up a prosperous and rapidly increasing trade which is evidence of his ability and of the straightforward and honorable methods by which his enterprise is conducted. He has been a resident of Oregon since 1873 and has been engaged in various business enterprises in Coos county since that time. He was born in Kentucky in 1854 and is a son of Thomas and Mary Drane. natives of Virginia.  His father died when our subject was eleven years of age and his mother made her home with her children for a number of years.  She moved from Kentucky to Kansas and then to Texas and finally to Oklahoma where she died at the age of ninety years. Later he was adopted by Mordica Day with whom he lived until he was sixteen. In that year he went to Kansas and after three years in that state came to Coos county, settling on the Coquille river where he took up a homestead claim of one hundred and sixty acres near Arago. Upon this he carried on general farming, operating and improving his property for seven years, abandoning agricultural pursuits at the end of that time in order to engage in business. He went to Coquille and operated a hotel, working in a sawmill during the same period. For ten years he conducted a butcher shop in the city and in 1901 erected his present building and established himself in the general merchandise business which he has followed since that time. He has sought success by straightforward and worthy means and has proven capable and reliable, his industry and well directed activity bringing him a gratifying measure of prosperity. He has invested his money judiciously in local enterprises being a stockholder in two sawmills near Coquille and also in a creamery. He owns his store building and other town property and resides in an attractive and pleasant home.
  
In 1877 Mr. Drane was united in marriage in Coos county to Mrs. Belle Pike the widow of Russell Pike of New Hampshire and a daughter of Joseph and Hannah (Shambrook) Smith, natives of England. Her parents died in Douglas county, Mr. and Mrs. Drane became the parents of two children. Mary, who was born in February 1878, is the wife of B. F. Lawrence, of Indianapolis, Indiana . He is editor of the Indianapolis star, the Terre Haute Star, and also of the Muncie star papers. Julia, whose birth occurred in October 1880, became the wife of E. E. Johnson of Coquille. He is manager of the Randolph Lumber Company on the Coquille river, and is also interested in the Farmers & Merchants Bank of Coquille and is president of the Bandon Water Company. The family belong to the Methodist Episcopal church, South.  Mr. Drane gives his allegiance generally to the democratic party but often reserves independence of judgment in regard to political issues. He has never sought public office, being a practical business man interested in the growth of his enterprise and capable of promoting it. He has been quick to perceive opportunities for advancement and in this way has made his business prosperous. The straightforward and upright qualities which are the foundation of his commercial prosperity are elements in his character and have made him successful in business and important in citizenship.

GEORGE SHAMBROOK. From 1853, when he first located in Douglas county, until his death, July 12, 1903, Mr. Shambrook was counted one of the county's most valuable residents. Recognizing the excellent quality of the soil here, he determined to make the best use of his farm of nine hundred acres, and besides carrying on general farming and stock-raising, also raised apples and prunes and large quantities of hops. In this section of Oregon the hop gardens are especially thrifty, and are among the best in the world, the yield being two  million five hundred thousand pounds yearly. He had forty acres in hops, forty-five acres in apple trees and twenty-five acres in Italian prune trees. He also owned a prune dryer, which greatly facilitated handling the fruit and preparing it for the market.

   George Shambrook was born in 1828 at Cambridge, England, and when five years of age was brought to Hamilton, Canada, by his parents, and in that city remained for a period of thirteen years. He started to carve his own fortune when but eighteen years old, journeying first to Illinois, where he was employed at farm work

until March, 1847. Having made up his mind to settle in the west, he crossed the intervening country in that year, stopping a short time at Whitman's Station on the way. He left that place but a few days prior to the Indian massacre there, in which his sister was captured.  Oregon City became the place of his abode on reaching the west, and he was employed in a mill until the spring of 1849. Like thousands of others, he became interested in the mining excitement, and accordingly went t to California, but shortly after his arrival he was taken ill, and in the fall of that same year returned to Oregon City. The following year he opened a butcher's shop, which he conducted successfully until 1853. From this time on Mr. Shambrook was a citizen of Douglas county. Of the several farms which he operated there his first was a donation claim of three hundred and twenty acres, which later became the property of the county, and was used as a poor farm. By a subsequent purchase, he became owner of one hundred and sixty acres, and until 1880 he made his home there. In that year, however, he took possession of the farm of nine hundred acres on which he resided until his death. His hop gardens were among the largest in the Willamette valley, and the quality and quantity of his hops and fruit were exceptional and were his special pride.

   Mr. Shambrook was twice married. His first union was with Nancy Fitzhugh, and was blessed with one child, Austria V., now the wife of Frank Burge. For his second wife Mr. Shambrook married Lucretia Ridenour. a daughter of David Ridenour, who crossed the country in 1853, and settled in Coles Valley, Ore., in 1854, and died in 1897. By the second union there were thirteen children, of whom the following are living: Mary, the wife of F. W. McKechnie, of Portland, Ore.; David R., county clerk of Douglas county, a sketch of whom will be found on another page of this work ; Hannah E., wife of R. W. Evans of Silverton ; Jessie L., at home;

Benjamin F., of Portland; Martha E., wife of W. B. Stewart, of Myrtle Creek ; and Cecil; George is deceased, as is also John, who was a doctor by profession, but died in 1888, when onlv thirty-five years of age.

   In religious conviction the family belong to the Methodist Episcopal Church and are regular attendants. As a citizen Mr. Shambrook was highly respected by all his fellowmen and held a place of prominence in his adopted county. His death, which occurred July 12, 1903, was a severe blow to the community in which he had resided

for so many years, but although no longer here, his memory lives, while his many deeds of charity and kindness will never be forgotten by those who knew him. [Portrait and Biographical Record of Western Oregon p. 267-268]
