Notes for Joseph:

He is found on the 1910 Degnan Twp., Latimer Co., Okla. Federal Census.

Joseph worked as a teamster, as did his brother 'Adam'. Joseph, along with his wife and children, migrated to the Willamette Valley in Oregon in the later part of 1910. Family history has it that the Dupees traveled by stage coaches to Oregon.

Joseph is found on the 1920, Albany City, Linn Co., Ore. Federal Census. He is living alone in, I assume, a boarding house. He is widowed by this time and is 76 years old (I believe that the census taker got the '7' and the '6' turned around as Joseph would actually have been about 67 years old by then).

When asked by the census taker what his father's birthplace in he tells them that it is 'France'. He also tells them that his father's mother tongue was 'French'.

Notes for Marguerite:

A letter that Marguerite wrote to her son regarding her birthplace-

"Dear Son,

Can't say where I was born. Sometimes think it may have been Indian Territory as I seem to remember so much of what happened there. Hazel and I would go down a sandy road to play. The very small town if one could call it that was named Tuskahoma Indian Territory. Had an Indian Governor Green McCurtain. He had two daughters about 16 and 18. They took care of Hazel and myself."

When living in Oregon, Marguerite was a cashier at the old Ramaseum Movie House in Albany. She also worked as a cashier/clerk for Mt. States Power Company. During WWII she worked as a flagger for the highway construction.

Notes for Daniel:

As told by his daughter-

Daniel, the only son of K.C. Molver (the Elder), was born in the Dakota Territory (Milton, Ward Co.) on May 27, 1887. Dan's sister 'Anna Marie Molver' (married a Mosler and resided at Independence) was born in Edenburg in 1886. Dan's sister 'Rande Karine 'Carrie'' Molver (later married Carl Tangen and lived at Moody) was born at Minot, N. D. in 1892.

When Daniel's father 'Knut Molver' moved to Oregon, he had his own boat on the river and a going farm with fruit trees and livestock. This was in 1899. Daniel was 12 or 13 years old then and able to do anything on the land or on the river where they fished for salmon and tended the crab nets.

On July 5, 1905 Dan enlisted in the Oregon National Guard for 3 years in Albany, Linn Co., Ore. He served in Co. G, 3rd Infantry Reg. At 18 years old he was 5' 1" tall and weighed 140 lbs. and healthy.

Later, Dan carried the mail on horseback and by buggy in the Siletz Toledo area. He also drove a 1 horse street car in Albany and owned a meat market before becoming an electrician for the Mountain States Power Company. He and his family moved often as the power lines that he worked on were extended through the states. He and his family always returned to Albany as his parents resided there (in the Casteels house at 607 Jefferson Street) and Marguerite's parents were living just east of town at Knox Butte.
