From Lake Chelan Historical Society President Dick Simonds
we have this document which he describes:
Attached is a copy of what I believe is an early
Miners & Merchants internal memo about Chelan's
We are asked frequently for this information.
Whether or not this is completly accurate
is probably subject to question. There was a fort
here in 1880 but no written evidence that I could
find on who was here with fort that was a settler.
Another good question would be to document the
decendents of the the early settlers that live here.

More on this piece of paper from Linda Martinson:
Linda notes that it came from the desk of Jim Lindston.
Jim Lindston was known for using every little bit of paper to take notes ~ and I suspect when Seattle First became Bank of America, Jim saved all that paper and used it for notes for the historical society.
We find all sorts of information on sheets such as this one.
Ted Farley’s ancestor is the person who collected the information on the early settlers and we have a copy of the original that Jim Lindston typed that one from.
Jim just happened to put the list on that paper ~ Jim was soooo precise when taking notes and often in a minute script that takes a bit of deciphering.
For those who may not know of Jim - He was president of Seattle First National Bank and was the mover and shaker that obtained the Museum Building from Seattle First (there is a plaque on the outside of the Museum).
Jim was the FOUNDER of the Lake Chelan Historical Society....
and it was his vision that has allowed us such a perfect facility and
