Waltz, William: “William Waltz, 102 years 8 months and 5 days, died Feb 15 at the Lincoln County farm north of Davenport. He was the oldest man in Lincoln County. He was buried in the Edwall Cemetery Saturday, Feb 16. In July, 1933, Mr Waltz called on the Citizen editor and from him we got his life history, from his own mouth. Referring to that, we find the following account of his life as he told it to us: William Waltz, Edwall, was born in San Francisco, May 10, 1832, when it was Mexican territory. His parents died when he was 18 months old, and though he is not positive, he thinks his father was German and his mother Irish. His father was a seaman and ran a German-Lloyd ship. He was familiarly known as “Uncle Billy” and had been in Washington ever since the San Francisco earthquake. He learned the trade of harness-maker in San Francisco with Maine & Winchester, and says he has visited every state in the Union. He worked for J E  Williams, Harrington, as a harness-maker for a number of years and then located at Edwall. He used to maintain a summer camp under a tree on the H S McNeilly farm on Crab Creek, a few miles west of Edwall. He was hardened to the outdoor life and tanned to a dark brown by the sun, and when interviewed at Harrington was smoking a big, black cigar, kicking about his “store teeth starving him.” and a stranger would not judge him to be over 60 years of age. He spent many years in Alaska during the big gold rush and came out with 14 others in a colony and all had plenty of money; “more money than we could do anything with,” he remarked, “so, on reaching San Francisco, we put our money in the Deacon Bank, and the next day the bank closed, and we were all broke.” “Uncle Billy” says he put in $27,000 and the high man of the colony, he claims, lost $60,000. If he had had the medical advisers and the attention from a health stand point that John D Rockefeller has had, he might have lived to be a century and a half old.” (Citizen-Feb 22, 1935)

Warwick, Charles:  “Dr Charles S Warwick, 39, a former Edwall boy, was killed in an automobile accident Saturday, Jan 27, at Santa Barbara, CA. He was the son of Mr and Mrs J F Warwick, now deceased, pioneer farmers of Edwall.  An interesting story marked the career of the young physician and surgeon, who had many friends in Spokane and Edwall country as well as Portland and Seattle. From Edwall high school and Whitworth college in Spokane he had continued his medical education at the University of WA, the Univ. of PA, and Rush Medical College, Chicago. Then came a two-year interlude in the AEF, with evacuation hospital No 7, with the First Army Corps, which handled the casualties from virtually every major action of the Americans. Home again, he went to the Univ. of OR medical school at Portland, making his own way by working an eight-hour shift as clerk in the post office. His time was so occupied that he had only a 15-minute interval between his shift and classes. Later he was with the Coffey clinic in Portland, and at the Santa Barbara General hospital. Recently he has been engaged in general practice and through his surgery was achieving a reputation of note. Surviving him are his widow, a former Spokane girl, two sisters, Mrs J Roy Whitney, Spokane, Mrs Carl Vehrs, Seattle; two brothers, Thurston W and Elmer C at Conrod, MT.” (Citizen: 2-02-34) “Funeral rites for Dr C S Warwick were held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock from Hennessey & Calloway’s chapel, the Rev H A VanWinkle officiating.

His brother-in-law, George Black, Bluestem merchant, who had missed him since Sunday, found the body in the barn while searching for him, He had locked one barn door on the outside and had nailed up the other door on the inside.
