From The Goldendale Sentinel (April 5, 1956, article lauds Mrs. Frank Gill, pioneer resident of county): "Time moved along and after graduation our young lady was employed in Pittsburg in a millinery shop until she came west with the other members of her family when she was 21 years old. This was an interesting trip because the whole family came to Oregon by train when train rides were not common. Oregon must have been quite different then than now but one thing remains the same -- Oregon needed school teachers and our young lady from Pennsylvania was soon teaching reading, writing and arithmetic at German Burn near Estacada, Ore."
