Last Logger Of I, i OX-Team Days The passing of Alex Johnson: last week marks the last of an era of logging dating back to the} ox-team days of the early eight-I ies, and the end of a long life spent in progressive logging down: to this day. Coming to Mason County in 1884 after a decade; lspent in Michigan woods, he fit- ;ted into the camps of that day~ land learned how to handle the yokes of oxen and pull big logs along the skids to water. He soon became associated With Robert Swan in logging in the Little Skooku‘m Valley, and around l [the McDonald Farm as a center, {where both married daughters of g the pioneer McDonald family. Lab ter on they expanded into the: g Chelialis Valley, where they start- 1 led in a small way but developed I la railroad and mill and also 51' l farm, which were sold for a large I 5 sum to the Vance Brothers, who: in turn sold the operation and timber lands to the Mason County Logging Company. This was around Malone where the mill was located and the operation was largely cut out and abandoned, only a year or two ago. 1 Swan and Johnson returned to ; Mason County and continued log-l :ging until the death of Robertl Swan and since then Alex John-, son has carried on independent logging by trucks until .within, the last year or so when his health 1 ‘failed and he gradually retired, lhis last important action being , the building of a fine home in. i town for his daughter and fam— ily, which he was spared to enjoy i for a short year. ' l . Alex Johnson was a fine char- acter and a typical logger who- knew how to handle logs and. tiring, but good hearted and a; friend to all who knew him; onel whose word was his bond, and; ‘ who did many a good turn to his“ employees in time of trouble; he. left a record all to the good.
