and bore him 14 (actually 16, JEM) children. In addition, she took in an additional 12-13 Children (I only know of 5, JEM) who needed a home. Margaret found the cannonball embeded in a stump. It was fired during the battle of 1856. She dug it out and later gave it to her daughter, who handed it down to other members of the family. The broken part of the double-barrel muzzleloading shotgun was also a relic from this time and period. It was found by Jeff Moore a few years ago (more than a few was before they put a stop to any digging etc.) As we refelect on the cause of this 1856 uprising, a copy of the historical edition of the Skamania County Pioneer published in August 1976 gave a comprehensive account of this historic event. In the fall of 1855 Daniel and Putnam Bradford built a tramway to portage the almost impassable Cascade Rapids. This enabled immigrants to safely continue their journey. A block house was built near the middle portion of this five-mile tramway. The man in charge of the construction was Major Rains. Therefor, it became known as Fort Rains. In March of 1856, several hundred Yakima and Klickitat Indians launched an attack to drive settlers and soldiers from this area clear to the Pacific Ocean.
