Julia says:

"The Lathrop family that lived five miles from us in Michigan had already located at the mouth of Humptulips. They wrote us about the Grey Harbor country, urging me to come. So in 1890, owing to crop failure and loss of our home, Father came west and decided to settle in Humptulips.

The first of May, Miles and Jim joined him, the rest of the family followed by train to Montesano in 1891, then by boat to Hoaquim. We stayed overnight at the "Veranda" owned by O.G. Chase. (Later operated for a short time by Kate and Gust Murhard.)

The next day, we loaded our goods into a sailboat run by Duck Schnieder - (Jim says it was captain Hank's sailboat). At the mouth of the Humptulips we transferred our household goods to canoes. One was paddled by my brother Jim and Myron Lathrop. The other by John and Albert Hess. A log jam had formed in the river. Taking the children, we walked around the jam, while the boys moved the canoes over the logs."
