Haines, Bernice:  (1917-1991);  “Bernice Frances (Reinbold) Haines, who had been living at the Lincoln Nursing Home, passed away Dec 12, 1991.  Her health had not been good for several years and she had been living in the nursing home for four and a half years following hip replacement surgery. She was the daughter of Adelina and Dan F Reinbold.  She was born June 17, 1917, at Egypt, arriving several weeks early and weighing only 4 pounds. Her first bed was a shoe box and she was put on the warming shelf on the old wood stove to keep warm. She attended and graduated from Davenport schools and recently celebrated her 50-year class reunion.  On Oct 9, 1938, she married R Kenneth Haines at Egypt’s Christ Lutheran Church. The next year, the couple moved down to the old Earl place, where they lived until retirement.  The Haines then moved to Harrington. Mrs Haines loved her yard. She had a big garden and canned all summer, but her flowers were her main love. Her yard looked like a park. She also enjoyed cooking and guests never left her table hungry. She was very active in the Harrington United Methodist Church, where she was a member, teaching Sunday school for many years and serving as president of the Ladies Aid. She was a member of Magnolia Rebekah Lodge and a 53-year member of Community Grange. She is survived by her two daughters and sons-in-law, Janice and Wayne Hutchinson of Deer Park and Virginia and Jerry Stinnett at the old Earl place; 8 grandchildren, Kathy and Keith Walker of Airway Heights, Chris and Jim Blair, Carold and Donna Hutchinson of Deer Park, and Kenny and Zane Stinnett of Harrington; three great granddaughters…; brothers and their families, Don and Nona Reinbold of Davenport, Pat and Peggy Reinbold of Zillah, WA, and Gene and Bev Reinbold, of Moses Lake; and numerous nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.

Brief services were held at the home of the deceased by Rev Walker before noon, and from there the procession came to town where members of the order in a body followed the remains to the grave, and where the last rites were performed according to the ritual of this order.  Mr Haines leaves a wife and six children, the oldest of whom is a boy of about fourteen years.  He was in his forty-fourth year, and came to Lincoln County from Illinois some eight years ago. Mr Haines was generally esteemed by his neighbors, and was an excellent citizen. He carried two thousand dollars insurance in the Woodmen of the World, which goes to his family.” (LCT: 1-22-1897)  “John D Haines. Death: Jan 19, 1897, Davenport, WA. Age: 43, male, white.

Hair, Ole S:  (1858-1906);  “Ole Hair, one of the best known saloon men in the Big Bend, was accidentally killed Sunday night last while on his way home from Reardan, where he had been to attend a ball game. His death was the result of a runaway, and took place some ten miles east of town. He was accompanied by W R Crookham, who witnessed the accident which he was powerless to avert. Mr Crookham had dismounted from the buggy, and Mr Hair attempted to get out also, but seemed to miss the step in alighting and fell, scaring the horses. They started to run, and in some way the long linen duster which the driver wore got caught either on the step or wound up on the hub of the wheel. The horses ran dragging him along at their heels, and not until they had gone fully a half a mile did the clothes of the unfortunate man become unfastened from the rig. He was unconscious when picked up, and never after regained consciousness. It was ten o’clock in the evening before he was brought in and a physician summoned, but it was soon apparent that Ole Hair had taken his last ride. He lingered along until about six o’clock Monday morning when he passed away. His face and head were terribly bruised, and the skull was broken in, evidently by the kick of a horse on the left side of the forehead, the break being about the size of a cork on a horseshoe…. Deceased was born in Norway and was 48 years of age. He had lived in Davenport for the last ten or twelve years, and was generally considered to be well fixed financially. A few years since he built a two story brick building on Sixth street, which he occupied with his saloon business. Among his associates he was popular and enjoyed the confidence and personal respect of many, a fact that was attested by the immense throng that followed his remains to their final resting place. The procession to the grave was headed by the band, Forresters and Eagles, marching in double file, and in the rear came some 20 or 30 rigs. It was perhaps the most imposing funeral procession ever witnessed in Davenport. The deceased had family relatives in New York, but so far as known, none in the west. Mr Martin McLean of the Davenport National Bank has been appointed temporary administrator of the estate of the deceased.” (LCT: 5-04-1906) (see Probate file #876)

He suffered a stroke Thursday evening and never recovered consciousness. He had been in poor health for about three years. The funeral of Mr Hansen was held at the Dav.

Out of town persons who attended the funeral included Mrs Ida Spining of Burton, WA, Mr and Mrs H Jurgensen, Mr and Mrs H M Hansen, V Jurgensen, Wilbur; Mr and Mrs Mike Tanner, Creston.  Mr Hansen was born in Bonholm, Denmark, May 23, 1853. He grew to manhood in his native country, and, in the spring of 1873, came to the United States with his twin brother, Marcus, who died here in August, 1921. The brothers settled first in Wisconsin, but in 1875, they moved to California and engaged in farm work until the fall of 1877, when they started for Washington. They came to this state overland by means of a wagon, stopping first at Walla Walla, and then proceeding to the Palouse country to the place where the town of Pullman now stands. In the spring of 1880 they came to Cottonwood Springs, where Davenport now stands. At that time there was only one small house here and the surrounding country was sparsely settled. Mr Hansen took up a homestead two and a half miles southeast of town, and there he endured all the hardships incident to pioneer life. Supplies had to be hauled from Colfax and Spokane, and Mr Hansen had to go to other parts of the state to harvest to earn money for the necessities and improvements on his farm.  Although Mr Hansen had but a half interest in a wagon when he arrived here before he retired from farming and moved to town in 1916 he owned 320 acres of fine grain land, and the improvements on his farm, now the Frank Johnson place, were regarded as among the best in this county.  Mr Hansen resided in Davenport from 1916 until his death. He was married August 7, 1898, to Hanna L Hansen, who survives him. He is also survived by three daughters, Mrs John C Raymer, Miss Agnes Hansen and Miss Gladys Hansen, of Davenport, and three sisters, Mrs Charles Morgan, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Mrs Chris Coos, Gig Harbor, WA, and Mrs Ole Olsen, Austin, Texas.” (DT&T: 8-25-1927)  “J D Hansen.
