OREGON’S WISCONSIN COLONY
Mrs. Della Armitage of Neillsville, Wis., arrived in Portland Tuesday morning, June 9, called here by the serious illness of her father, Henry Bealer.
J. C. Martindale and daughter, Viola, Mrs. H. T. Morse and daughter, Lillian and Mrs. Della Armitage drove from Portland to Salem Tuesday to visit the latter’s father, who is very ill in a hospital there.
J. C. Martindale and Mrs. Della Armitage called on Mr and Mrs. John Clark and Clint Tuttle of Woodburn Tuesday afternoon.
S. L. Demouth and wife of Maplewood, J. C. Martindale of Portland and Mrs. Della Armitage autoed to Clatskanie Thursday to see the latter’s ranch, which is located in the hills, five miles south of there.
Word was received in Portland Thursday after that Henry Bealer, formerly of Neillsville, Wis., had passed away at the Salem Hospital that morning. Arrangements have been made to have funeral at Ridgon’s undertaking parlor Saturday and the remains will be laid to rest in the Salem Cemetery.
Eva(b. 1863) married Henry Bealar when she was 19. Two years later she had a baby girl, Della. Then, less than two years later she died. I was told that Cordelia and Jacob raised Della after her mother died, however, the 1900 census shows her living with her Aunt Semantha Chase and family. Della grew up and married Willis Armitage. She was the census taker for the 1910 and 1920 census in Clark County, Wisconsin, Weston township. Della and Willis were the parents of Lisle Armitage.
Greenwood Gleaner 3 May 1906: "Willis J. Armitage, wife, and son Lisle, visited at Orlo Robinson’s a few days ago"
acccording to the family tree on ancestry by mayork1 Della was born 1884. If this is so she was a twin to the baby who died. I had her birth from census sources as 1885.

In Response To: Re: Obit: Bealer, Henry (died 1925) (Dianne Stevens)
Della was raised with the help of Caroline Bealer Christie. You can read in her obituary on this site how she was like a mother to Della (Mrs. Geo Iffland) and her nephew Thomas F. Burge, the son of her sister Almira Bealer Burge. Almira's husband died when Thomas was an infant, similar to Henry's wife Eva dying when Della was an infant.
