"From : The Sou'Wester; Published Quarterly by the Pacific County Historical Society. State of Washington. Volume XIV Number 1, Spring 1979.

BY Rowena L. and Gordon D. Alcorn

Cape Disappointment, on Washington's south-westernmost corner, was named in frustration by the British explorer John Meares in 1788, when he failed to recognize the entrance of the Columbia to be the fabled "River of the West' he sought. (This massive headland protects what is now Baker Bay.)

About 1961 as the tangled undergrowth on top of the 200-foot cliff was removed an almost forgotten old gun emplacement was partially exposed. This was the Battery Elijah Temple O'Flyng.

It was on November 1 1904, that the Brigadier General J.H. Story, Chief of Artillery, made a special report to the War Department recommending that two new gun emplacements be installed at Fort Canby. One was to be named in honor of Ensign O'Flyng, 23rd Infantry, who died on September 18 1814, from wounds received at Fort Erie, Canada. There would be two 6-inch B.L.R. guns here.

The second would honor Lieut. Colonel Harvey A. Allen, 2nd Artillery, who had served with distinction during the Mexican and Civil Wars. Here there would be three 6-inch B.L.R. guns. Guns would be on disappearing carriages in the two batteries.

By 1865, eight artillery weapons had been put in place on this headland, then named Cape Hancock. This "Tower Batter" included one 15- inch, 5 10-inch and two 8-inch smoothbore Rodman cannons.

Gold rushes had reduced the labor supply, so to aid the construction wages were increased. (Several old-time Ilwaco residents stated that some convict labor was also used.)

The gun platforms were constructed of extra-thick timbers. Furnaces were made so that shots could be heated to a glowing red.

Cape Hancock's name was changed to Fort Canby in January 1875, to honor the memory of Brevet Major General Edward R.S. Canby, who was killed by Modoc Indians on April 11, 1873. (Refer to The SouWester for Summer 1968.)

That 15-inch Rodman was placed in front of but too close to the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. When it was fired on May l, 1898, to celebrate Admiral Dewey'' victory at Manila, it cracked the lighthouse lens. After that incident, the Rodman was moved farther to the south.

The late William K. Inman, who came to Ilwaco in 1894, was for many years in the Cape Disappointment Life-Saving Service. He remembered about the installation of Battery Elijah O'Flyng, which was started in 1905 and completed the following year.

"A road up there from the beach was made a few hundred yards beyond the present Coast Guard Station. They had put railroad tracks on it so that supplies could be hauled up there by means of a donkey engine. The battery was made of concrete with all the interior walls finished with surface-treated blocks of the hollow-type concrete to prevent condensation.

"The builders had many setbacks", according to Inman. "One day, the cable snapped from the donkey engine and several cars loaded with sand and cement, plummeted down the incline dumping all of its cargo into Baker Bay."

In 1906 when O'Flyng Battery was completed, Inman with his wife Maude, and her sister, Mae Stansbury, who was visiting from California, walked up to the Battery. Somehow, Mrs. Stansbury accidentally tripped the mechanism on one of the disappearing guns. "When it suddenly rose up out of that pit, it certainly gave us quite a scare," he recalled.

But what of the war hero, Elijah Temple O'Flyng?

Our correspondence with the Old Wars Department Archivist, revealed that he was a member of a most remarkable patriotic Irish family in upper New York State. The father, Patrick O'Flyng, had enlisted on April 24, 1775, as a private in John Moor's Company of Colonel John Stark's New Hampshire Regiment. O'Flyng had fought bravely in the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Re-enlisting, he became Quartermaster Sergeant during 1776-77. Then he was in the Battle of the Susquehanna in General Sullivan's Indian Expedition in August 1779.

For the following 30 years he tilled the soil but in 1813 in enlisted in David Scott's 23rd Infantry. He was then 62 years old! On that day, January 27, 1813, at Batavia, New York, his four sons also joined the Army with him: Patrick JR, Elijah, Edmund, and a stepson Charles House. (Abigail O'Flyng's son by a previous marriage.)

Elijah was 21 years of age. From a copy of his enlistment papers, obtained from the War Department, it shows him to be tall, of fair complexion, with dark eyes and hair. He was to receive the sum of $8.00 "in part for my bounty for enlisting into the Army of the United States for five years."

During the Battle of Lundy Lane, Elijah and Patrick O'Flyng Jr. served with such distinction, they were promoted to the rank of Ensign. (This was 2nd Lieutenant-a term then in use by the Army-but is today a naval rank.)

Patrick Jr. was soon thereafter promoted to 1st Lieutenant. It was he who led the "Forlorn" of the 23rd Infantry under the command of General Miller in a Sortie at Fort Erie, Canada. The British forces were under General Drummond.

Fort Erie was pivotal to that Niagara Frontier for the American and British forces. On September 17, 1814, a crucial battle was fought during a violent thunderstorm.

Hundreds of spectators had gathered on the American side of Lake Erie anxiously waiting for news of that conflict. The rumbling of cannon fire, jagged bolts of lightening followed by thunder and torrential rain, made it an awesome scene.

Late on that afternoon, a small boat was seen to be struggling on the storm-frothed lake. As it neared the shore it capsized, and the lone survivor was saved by a human chain formed out into the water.

During that successful siege of Fort Erie, Elijah O'Flyng received such a sever wound that he expired the following day on September 18, 1814.

According to records of the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society, he was buried in the cemetery on Ellicott creek Road, where soldiers of the War of 1812 were interred on the Reservation near Williamsville. Since all records of that military cemetery were destroyed by fire years ago, the exact spot of his grave is unknown. (He died leaving no wife or child.)

Edmund O'Flyng had enlisted at age 15 and with his brothers fought so bravely in the Battle of Lundy Lane, he was awarded an appointment to West Point. Edmund decided to become a minister instead, and obtained 160 acres of Bounty Grant Land in Bucyrus, Ohio. He died there on May 23, 1873.

Patrick O'Flyng Jr. had been wounded at Fort Erie and as a result of it he died in February 1816. Patrick O'Flyng Sr., for his long years of meritorious army service, received Bounty Grant Land in Madison County, Illinois. That proud old soldier died there at age 71 on Oct 7 1822.

Fort Canby State Park now includes the site of the Battery Harvey Allen. In 1976, a fine Interpretive Center was built in front of that old gun emplacement, located just north and across a deep cove from the cape Disappointment Lighthouse. From the Center there is a spectacular view over the ocean.

About halfway up the road between the Coast Guard Station and the Lighthouse, a narrow trail leads off to the south through a thick brushy area. It ends at the old Battery O'Flyng standing in a small weed-choked clearing. On the top is a tangled mat of earth and vines and its heavy rusted iron doors stand ajar.

During late May and June, a few barn swallows dart swiftly in and out of that dim interior where they have fashioned their compact nests of mud on the ceiling of the old battery chambers.

Attention Lavala Bakken.

Dear Ms Bakken:

Elijah Temple O'Flyng certainly was one of my husband's O'Flyngs-as well as being related to your pioneer Roseburg Burts'!

We do appreciate your interest and kindness in remembering us. I have been busy working on transcribing the early letters and diaries of the family as much as possible. However so many things do interfere. But that's expected.

Elijah was the brother of Abigail Temple O'Flyng Burt, who lived on a donation claim on Deer Creek, about five miles east of Roseburg, where she emigrated with her family in 1853. She died in 1875 and, with most of her family, is buried in a little hilltop cemetery out there. Quincy Brown, Mildred Herman and Edythe Powell of Roseburg, are all great nephew and nieces of Elijah. There are a number more nephew and nieces in Vaneta, Horton, Prospect (near Medford) and in Washington. I do not believe my husband's grandfather, Enos O'Flyng, knew of the Battery honoring his uncle, as he made no mention of it in any of his rather voluminous writing. He had two daughters who lived in Chinook, Washington, very close to the area, and spent considerable time there from about 1912 until his death in 1930.

There is some information in the article we appreciate receiving. Our family records do not give the birth date, place, or burial information of Elijah. The war records are similar to ours. Not only did Elijah's father fight in the Revolution, but his maternal grandfather was Elijah Temple, who was a prominent member of New Hampshire's Green Mountain Boys. He also served as a corporal in Major Whitcomb's Rangers in New Hampshire.

A cousin of my husband, Harold O'Flyng of Horton, Oregon, in possession of Elijah's epaulets, which he wore in battle.

Unfortunately some of the text is cut off on one of the pages sent. I am enclosing a check and asking if it is possible to have a new copy made of page three of the article, as well as a copy of the cover photo. Also, could we have the date of issue of the SouWester in which this was published?

He died on 9 April 1807 at the age of 74 in Westmoreland, Cheshire, NH.8301,19395,42330,82694,93173 Church records give 7 Apr 1807, recorded in Parkhill Church, Westmoreland, NH. He was buried in North Cemetery, Westmoreland, NH. A Find-A-Gravememorial for him is otherwise in agreement, but gave his death as 7 Aug 1781 in Westmoreland, NH.

Grave Marker Placed by DAR at Greenwood for Soldier's Daughter

A great-great granddaughter financed the marker placed by the Monroe Daughters of the American Revolution on a grave in Greenwood Cemetery.
The marker is on the grave of Huldah Temple Humes Gardner, a daughter of an American Revolutionary War Soldier of New Hampshire, Elijah Temple. The marker was donated by Mrs. Helen Bingham Saltzer of Denver, whose mother was a Ludlow.
The war veteran was a corporal in Maj. Benjamin Whitcomb's Rangers and also with James Butterfield's party of volunteers raised for an expedition against Canada from Feb. 4 to the last of March, 1778.
His daughter, Huldah Temple, was born in Westmoreland, NH on July 2, 1769. She was twice married, first to Samuel Humes, and then to Silas Gardner. Her daughter, Almira Humes, born at Portsmouth, NH, April 5, 1806, was the wife of William Boardman Churchill.
Huldah Temple Humes Gardner was the great-great grandmother of Miss Charlotte Churchill and of Mrs. Arthur P. Benkert, both of Monroe.
She was also an ancestor of Dr. Harriet G. Anundsen and a grandmother of the late Mrs. Martha Relf, first regent of the Col. Benjamin Harrison chapter of Monroe's DAR. Misidentified in American Ancestry as another Urijah. Parents: Thomas TEMPLE-32 and Sarah BARNARD-5083.

In June 1860 he was a farmer in Moscow, Somerset, ME.1972 Elijah died on 22 February 1868 at the age of 85 in Moscow, Somerset, ME.23,431 Buried in Bingham Village Cemetery, Bingham, ME. He has reference number RLT # U7.10560 Enumerated in the 1850 census next to Sardis Temple. Although born in different states, perhaps they were related as brothers or close cousins.

In 1850 he was a farmer in Moscow, Somerset, ME.45801 Living with his parents. In June 1860 he was a miller in Moscow, Somerset, ME.1972 In June 1870 Elijah was a farmer in Moscow, Somerset, ME.53272 In June 1880 he was a farmer and mill owner in Moscow, Somerset, ME.67048 He died on 7 April 1900 at the age of 76 in Moscow, Somerset, ME.23,431,45800 Died of pneumonia. Buried in Bingham Village Cemetery, Bingham, ME. It is not clear to me that the marriage to Eliza Ratchford was with this Elijah, or perhaps a son of his. The reason is the absence of a family in the 1860 census, and the birth dates of his children after that - meaning he married and started having children while in his mid 40s. Not unheard of, but it is unusual. Parents: Elijah TEMPLE-32301 and Anna WHITCOMB-32297.

Elijah Elliot (Elijah) TEMPLE8367 was born on 13 September 1875 in Honey Grove, Fannin, TX.61105,67083,69864,69865,93184,93185,93186,93187 His death certificate gave 3 Sep 1874, which appears in Find-A-Grave, but his draft registration, closer to the actual fact, says 13 Sep. He appeared in the census in June 1880 in Lamar Co., TX.5726,61105 In June 1900 he was a farm laborer in Blount Co., TN.67083 In 1918 Elijah was a farmer in Floyd, Hunt, TX.93184 In January 1920 he was a farmer in Hunt Co., TX.69864 In April 1930 he was a car washing watchman in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX.69865 Elijah appeared in the census in April 1940 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX.93185 He lived 938 East Arlington Street in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX in 1944.93186 He died on 20 April 1944 at the age of 68 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, TX.93186,93187,93188 Find-A-Grave says Arlington, TX, which disagrees with his obituary and death records. Died at home of a coronary occulusion. Buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Fort Worth, TX. Elijah has reference number RLT # (None).12103 His parents were both from TN. Appeared in 1920 as Elijah E, and in 1930 as Elliot E. In his WWI draft registration, he spelled his middle name Elit. A good case can be made that he had two wives, marrying the second, probably named Mary some time before 1918.

There was an Elvie Temple, married to a Maggie, also in Hunt County, TX, but the two of these families never appeared in the same census. Both men were farm laborers or farmers. However, Elijah Temple did not have a daughter named Bonnie (his daughter was Elsie V.), and Elijah's other children who should have appeared in a 1910 census were absent from the family of Elvie and Maggie Temple. It is possible that if Elijah had a second wife, whom he married before 1918, she might have been the mother of the other children enumerated with them in 1920. That would mean that Elijah appeared in the 1910 census in Hunt County, TX, with a wife named Maggie, one daughter, and mistaken information about his birth year and his parents' place of origin. Parents: William M. TEMPLE-25349 and Sarah Cathryn (Sallie) NELSON-35461.

(Maggie) RUSSELL and Elijah Elliot (Elijah) TEMPLE were married about September 1899 in TN.67083,69865,69867 The report of their license was published on 2 Sep 1899, so it was issued on or slightly before that date. The earliest date for their license is a bit harder to capture - the newpaper said the licenses were those "issued since our last report." Thus, the date may have been in Aug 1899. Children were: Roy Victor TEMPLE-41391, Julie Katherine TEMPLE-41392, May Edna TEMPLE-41393, Elsie V. TEMPLE-41394, Jewel Janet TEMPLE-45688.

It could have been after midnight, or the coroner may not have pronounced him dead until after midnight. Buried in Southview Cemetery, North Adams, MA. He was a clerk.23 No issue. I am not sure what the problem is, but in 1920 his wife was enumerated as Mary, which was his first wife. She claimed to be 63, born in MA with parents both from MA. In his death certificate, the informant is listed as Florida Temple, but I have no idea who she was. Parents: Dr. Cyrus TEMPLE-1315 and Mary Jane FLAGG-1843.
