A LOOK INTO THE PAST
I found this is some history notes:
Klickitat Sentinel Thursday, Dec 29, 1884
Camas Prairie School – After considerable trouble and contention the officers of this school district have been elected. The citizens have gotten out logs and raised a school house. It is now ready for the lumber, which is to be finished by the proprietors of the saw mill now in progress. We live in hope that the school house will be finished for spring school. Already the snow is five feet on the level.
From the July 8, 1889 The Dalles Times Mountaineer newspaper. Some one must have been planning a big bang for the Fourth of July.
"Pratt Place" Would be the Plett place, also spelled Platt. They were early residents of the Valley. Their homestead was down at the old Wallace Davis place. Where Jon Cole lives now. They later moved to Wasco County. They were German, but came from Minnesota. John and Cathrena Plett had, I think seven children.
Vincent Brodie is Vincent or Vincenz Borde. Many of you will recognize the name Borde Flats which is across the Klickitat. Vincent filed a land claim for that area. He also filed land claims east of town on the road to Goldendale, and down on the Klickitat.
His father Wenzel Borde filed a homestead claim down in the area where the road crosses Outlet Creek.
Sometimes called "The Young Place", east of town was a Borde home.
After Pletts left, Vincenz Borde owned the property and Wenzel owned the property where Bun and Anita Wellenbrock now live.
Wenzel's wife Marie passed away here in the valley in 1893 from stomach problems. He later married Louise Wellenbrock.
Vincenz Borde married Clara Kuhnhausen. One of their daughters, Alma, married Perda Staack. They lived where Jake Eldred now lives.
The Pletts are buried in Wasco County, but all of the other names are buried in our local Mt Adams Cemetery.
