About this Item

FIRST EDITION. SIGNED BY TEAGLE on the front free endpaper. 8vo. 47p. Illustrated with nine b/w photos, including one of Ernest C. Teagle in the Foreword. Stapled booklet in green pictorial wrappers. Insides of wrappers are maps. A descendant of a Welsh immigrant named Thomas Eli Teagle, Ernest C. Teagle was born in Coldwater, Ohio in 1883. In 1891 he moved with his family to Jeffries Camp [Pierce County, Washington], a stop on the little steam railroad that ran from Tacoma to Puyallup. There in the local timber mill, E.C. Teagle's father Allen met Henry McCleary, the local foreman for the owners Foy & Son. When the timber supply ran out in 1896, Ed Foy and Henry McCleary formed a partnership and built a saw mill near Garden City, two miles from the present McCleary [Grays County, Washington], which was named for Henry McCleary in 1910. In the spring of 1897, the Teagles moved to the new saw mill, where Ernest's mother ran the cookhouse and his father worked in the mill. Eventually the lumber operation was moved to what came to be known as McCleary Village (now just McCleary), whose first occupants were the Teagles. Ernest Teagle knew Henry McCleary and the lumber operation intimately and is eminently suited to tell the story of the logging business in McCleary. Minor darkening around edges, very minor soiling to wrappers, staples have just a touch of rust, else very good and better with all photos in fine condition. n/a. Bookseller Inventory # 04202
