BY ADDISON BENNETT.
w 1VIXG at the Ramapo hotel in
I . this city Is Mrs. Maria Ange
line Campbell Smith, who was
not only the first white child born In
Salem, but is the oldest living native
citizen of the state., She first saw the
light of day at the old Jason Lee mis
sion, which was located Just across
the street from the site of the present
Southern Pacific depot in that city.
She has made her home at the Ramapo
hotel in the same suite of rooms for
the last 12 years. I visited her there
the day following her 80th birthday,
and found her apparently a lady of
SO or at the most 60 years of age. In
deed, in all of my experiences in in
terviewing elderly and Important per
sons during a period of more than 50
years I never before saw so young a
lady, if I may use the term, as IBrs.
Smith is for her advanced age. Her
bright eyes, her brown hair showing
but slight traces of gray, bespeak a
lady of middle life. The "crows' feet"
have not yet appeared to any appreci
able extent to take the place of the
early plumpness and rose tint of the
cheeks. I think perhaps she is one
of the forerunners of those who will
live for two or three hundred years
pr more, as the. wise sharps are now
saying. At that rate Mrs. smith, is not
yet past her teens.
Parents Are Virginians.
The parents of Mrs. Smith were
Virginians, and evidently of the best
stock of that great state. The mother
was a member of the celebrated Bid-
die family, her maiden name being
Harriet Byron Biddle. Just when she
left her Virginia home I am unable to
say, but Mr. Campbell, her' youthful
friend and neighbor, left In his early
teens and received a part of his edu
cation in Springfield, III.. and there
learned the trade of cabinet maker.
He married Miss Biddle when quite
young and one child was born, a little
son named Sterling, in 183S. but he
died when only a few weeks old.
At that time, and until the start for
Oregon, Mr. Campbell was In the cabi
net making business in Springfield.
Their second chlld.vJlary, was born in
that city in 1S23. and id-September of
that year the little, family went to
New York to join the second Jason
Lee party for Oregon. This was known
as the Jason Lee mission reinforce
ment party. They left New York early
n November, 1838, on the sailing ves
sel, Lausanne, bound for Vancouver,
Or., now Washington. There were 50
families aboard. Including 18 small
children. They came around the
horn" of course, and made a short
stop at Honolulu, and also a few calls
long the west coast to discharge pas
sengers or cargo. Alter a trip or
seven months they landed at Van
couver and met with a hearty wel
come from Factor McLoughlin, who In
every way looked after their comfort
until the conveyances from the mis
8.18 n mostly flat boats and scows.
came to take tnem nome. in tne
party were Jason Lee and Mrs. Lee,
and Gustavus Hines. It was, of course
the second trip for Mr. Lee, but the
Mrs. Smith Mnalelao.
Mrs. Smith was born at the mission
October 25, 1841, where the Campbells
resided until the mission was aban
doned. Mrs. Campbell was a member
of the Methodist church. From almost
Infanrv Maria wn, a mnslKl.M Whan
she was but a little tot she used to
play on the mission organ, one of
those little portable affairs that was
carried from place to place almost as
conveniently as a violin. And for
more than 60 years she has, as oc
casion or inclination urged, been a
music teacher. She received a good
education In all branches, but particu
larly in music, her finishing courses
being at the best schools and by the
best teachers in San Francisco.
Going back to the affairs of the
Campbell family, which the birth of
Maria brought up to four, I find the
next addition took place by the birth
of Harriet. This was after they had
left the mission and were living on
the donation -claim of Mr. and Mrs.
Campbell, which was In the Chehui
pun valley, near where the town of
Jefferson la now located. Born later
were a son, Gustavus. and two daugh
ters. Esther and Sarah.
. The oldest daughter, Mary, who was
born in Illinois, married William
Barnhart. a Portland merchant. She
died in 1910. Mrs. Smith was the third
child. Harriet, the fourth, who also
was born on the farm, married Charles
Calef, also a well-known Portland
citizen. Mrs. Calef died several years
ago in New York city. The fifth, a
son, Gustavus, was accidentally shot
and killed in Portland when a yourrg
man. The sixth, Esther, married Ben
Holladay, who at that time and be
fore and later was one of the most
widely known citizens of the state.
The seventh and last .was Sarah
Clarissa, who married F. W. Latham
-of this city, who lives In the Latham
building. Mississippi and Skidmore
Mrs. Smith was married to Samuel
M. Smith of the firm of Smith & Davis,
druggists. Front and Stark streets. He
died aftet tiany years of poor health.
Family Leaves Fans,
The Smtoh & Davis drug firm was
for a long time one of Portland's lead
ing houses. After Mr. Smith retired
from the business it was merged into
Snell, Heltshu & Co.
Mr. Campbell made his big start In
business when the mission- disbanded
and he purchased their livestock,
horses, cattle, sheep, mules, oxen, etc.
He had a fine farm and became so suc
cessful that he was at one time con
sidered one of the richest men In
Oregon. He had a touch of the wan
derlust in his veins. That was shown
by his trip from his old home to Illi
nois. It touched him again when he
made his great adventure from Illi
nois to Oregon. And he was probably
restless on the farm and at the mis
sion. And then It was his great desire
to give his children as great facilities
for education as possible. With that
