The quieter week between August's fair and rodeo
activities and the rush of a new school year and the first
meetings of many organizations has slipped by so swiftly.
The early rain surely helped to settle some of summer's dust.
Some of the reading I had put aside got my attention. The
lead article in the Summer Oregon Historical Quarterly
proved to be expecially fascinating because it concerns
Heppner and this region's history.
In "My Darling Red Bird" Elizabeth Redington Stewart,
a daughter of an exciting, early publisher of The Heppner
Gazette writes principally of her Grandfather Alfred B.
Meacham, Oregon's Superintendent of Indian Affairs from
18(9 to 1872. but she includes some lines about others of her
interesting family, including her colorful father Colonel John
W. (Watermelon) Redington.
Local Museum records show that Indian War officer,
Colonel J. W. Redington, published the Gazette here from 1883
until 1888, then left for two years, returning in 1900 and
staying until just before the 1903 flood. Redington went on to
work with newspapers in Seattle, Portland and Salem before
living out his last years in a retired soldiers home in
California.
His daughter Elizabeth states "My father, after scouting
for the army in the Nez Perce campaign, rode his horse
through Heppner, and Henry Heppner persuaded him to stay
and publish the Heppner Gazette. Father was not interested
until they told him the baddies had driven the last publisher
out. This was a challenge, so he stayed."
The Redingtons. Col. J.W., Nellie Meacham Redington
and their four "adored" daughters Mabel, Bernice, Marian
and Elizabeth lived here along the creek where "Father had
a nice home, a Chinese man servant, a setter dog and a good
horse."
More than half of Mrs. Stewart's article is the
reproduction of a long letter which her grandfather Colonel
Meacham wrote tohermother Nellie (Red Bird) in 1877 when
Nellie was graduating from Willamette University.
During the early years that Redington published the
Heppner Gazette, the community was really isolated.
Personal letters were so important. It took time for outside
news to filter in and most pioneers had to depend on their
weekly paper for information and amusement. How things
changed with the advent of telephones, radios and now our
instant TV news and amusement.
However, this county still maintains a pioneer-like
situation in that most activities and amusement here are not
ready-made, not simply presented for foks to buy. The
residents here have learned to depend on their own creativity
