Page 2 The Coquille Valley Sentinel October 27, 20[0 Id gou know thI=? Bg editor 6aurl orolhg Tglor Quick and Lukens You can tell by the courthouse in the background the approximate age of the photo. Note the two houses at the bottom of the picture. They are located directly across the street from the tall Sherwood victorian home. Quick and Lukens only connection is that they were neighbors. Quick's house is on the left and Lukens on the right. They still look good today. Luken's house appears to have a larger window in the downstairs facing window. The porch trim isn't as fancy as it was then. ANDREW & LUCINDA LUKENS bought this property in 1888. Andrew was a house builder so no doubt built their home. Lucina was a dressmaker. In the 1900 census they were living in the house with three kids, Irma, 21, a school teacher born in Illinois; Ralph 13, born in Oregon in 1887 and Herbert a year old (!) born in 1899 in Oregon. That means they came to Oregon in 1886 or 87. Andrew bought the property right away in 1888. In 1895 he took out a mortgage on it. The Sanbom map shows insurance on it in 1898. The 1890 census could tell us, but since it burned .... no luck. Andrew died 10 May 1936 but Lucinda continued to live in the house until she died April 20, 1946. She lived there 58 years. JOHN E. QUICK, born in Kanasas in 1864, bought this lot in 1907. He took out a mortgage in 1909 so probably got busy and started construction right away. He gives his occu- pation in the census as a house builder. He had a house builder for a neighbor also! I wonder if he got any help from Lukens? Quick ran a second hand store according to a 1917 county directory. It said he sold furniture, bedding, stoves, ranges, kitchen utensils; everything on earth in household goods, window screens, and made to order screen doors, is a general repair shop and sharpens lawn mowers, operating the business past 1925. In 1920, still sin- gle, he had two women living with him. No, he hadn't decided to live a life of sin, He took in his two widowed sisters, one 52 and the other 40 yrs. old. The 1936 tele- phone books says he had two apartment houses. He doesn't appear in the Oregon death index. I can't find him in the 1930 census. He was here, however. He's listed as a mem- ber of the Masons in 1940. His store sounds better than the mall. He must have been an interesting neighbor. Now sold at The Sentinel !LINE MARKER Editor's desk Our new hospital Everyone was aware it was a very special occasion on Friday. Groundbreaking ceremonies for the new Coquille Valley Hosp!tal took place, and valley residents turned out to celebrate. The project shows a level of administrative excellence an town of this size can be proud of. It could not have been easy to obtain the necessary funding in the cur- rent economic climate. All we can say is, "Congratulations on a job well done." Books It has not been comfortable for me to read for the past few years. Well, my eyes have been restored, and I spent the weekend with good books. If you have not read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, I recommend it. It is a mystery ... not my favorite genre ... but, I could not put it down! The second book was Theodore Rex, the mas- terful second volume of Edmund Morris's planned three- volume biography of my favorite president. Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States and the youngest president to take office. His presidential term ended at the young age of 50. The book is full of great information. Every time I think I have the complicated rough rider figured out, new information changes my mind. Neither of these are new books ... remember my eyes ... They have been sitting by my chair waiting for me.
