    3. [S1181] Notes of Luella Morgan Weese, Neava Teresa Morgan Porter.
      NEAVA MORGAN PORTER: Neava Morgan Porter was born just before the turn of the 20th century in 1898, the first child of William Morgan and Hannah Sylvia Collins Morgan. She was a pretty blue eyed little girl with dark hair. Louisburg, Kansas was a small country town and her grandmother Mary Jane Hastings Faler Morgan and grandfather William Morgan lived there too. Her grandfather was in the State Hospital by then and died when she was only 11 months old so she didn't get to know him. He had fell and hurt his head. She had aunts around, Aunt Rose Ann Crockett, Uncle John, Uncle James, Aunt Elizabeth Goode, Uncle Calvin Perry and Uncle Dan. All her grandfather Morgan's brothers and sisters. On her Mothers side, she had Grandmother Almeda Kemp Collins and Uncles Bill, John, George and Aunts Flora, Allie and Mary. Uncle George Collins later moved to Washington State in about 1936 with his wife Millie and children Dorothy, Bud, Bob, Betty, Dale and Billie. She spent the first 9 years in Kansas. Moving to Washington State in 1907 with her parents. She attended Scoggins Ridge School until she was about 14 years old. Her family lived on a small farm with horses, cows and other farm animals. Her mother taught her daughters how to cook and care for the farm animals. They made their own butter, gathered eggs and she brought the cows in from the pasture and milked them. Her mother had 4 babies after they moved to Washington State so there were the babies to take care of too. She married Henry Porter when she was 15 years old. Henry was considerably older than her. They lived on the Grouse Flates back in the mountains. Neava carried a baby son full term in her 16th year but he passed away at birth. The doctor was off fishing on the creek and left his wife to take care of Neava. She gave Neava medication for the pain and apparently it was too much for the baby. Neava and Henry continued to living on Grouse Flats and she would ride her horse Celium to Pomeroy in the winter time in the snow. She loved that horse and it seemed to have ESP with her. It just seemed to know what she wanted it to do. One day Henry let the horse get into the grain bin and then let him to the river for water. He died but he seemed to be waiting for Aunt Neava to come to the gate before he passed away. It was all Neava could take and she hitched a ride into town with the mailman when he came by to deliver mail. But before she left she gave her other horse to a neighbor that she knew would take care of him. She had to make a living for herself some way so she went to work cooking for harvest crews on local ranches. After that she went to work for a doctor as a house keeper and worked for him till after World War II. When Richard Porter came home after the war they bought a ranch out of Dayton. It was in a draw and they raised Black Angus cows. They had a bull who would sit down just like a dog. She has pictures of him sitting out in the pasture. Neava and Richard had a garden and put the vegetables they raised in a root cellar so they would keep over the winter. They started building a house on that place but Neava came down with cancer and they sold the ranch and cattle and moved to Pasco where Richard went to work for Central Pre-Mix Concrete on the night crew. After a number of years they moved back to the Dayton area and have a beautiful mobile home on the Tucannon. They have a beautiful view of the hills from their picture window. They still have a garden and fruit trees. They see bobcats and deer in their yard some mornings when they get up. Aunt Neava recovered from a broken hip, for which she had 2 operations when she was 90 years old. She would love to talk to you about the family tree when she comes to the family reunions and she has a lot of information I can tell you. 93 years worth. Submitted by Lu Weese
