Recent information that has come to me reveals:
Charles Shorey was born in 1850 in Waterville, Maine, into a farm family. At the age of 22 Charles married Sarah Fowles in Newcastle, Maine. Their only child, Eliza Jane Shorey was born three years later. In 1878 Charles moved West with his family, parents, siblings and nephews and nieces. They traveled by train to California and then by boat to Oregon, where they homesteaded in the Washington County, Dairy Creek area of Mountaindale. Charles died at his home in Oregon at the age of 84. In 1938 Sarah died at home at the age of 88. Their daughter Eliza Jane Shorey
continued to live in the home and to work as a stenographer for a prominent Hillsboro, Oregon attorney, She died in the 1950's
If you can add to that information, I would appreciate it.
