Hi Jim, when you post on these message boards, it's most helpful if you post all the details you know about the person. Where and when they were born. Parents. Siblings, etc.
I found a John Lewis Hesse b. abt. 1878, living in Eugene, Lane Co. with his parents in 1920. Parents Frank and Lucy Jane.
In 1930 the same John L. Hesse, b. abt. 1878, living in Eugene with wife Dorothy and children John and Virginia.
If you know more details I might be able to find more info.
Also are you related to Ellery and Cora Rowe from IN? They were my great grandparents and had children Dora, Lillie b. IN, 1890 and d. WA 1975, Roy and a couple others that escape my memory right now. Lillie was my grandmother. Roy was my great uncle and is how that branch of the Rowe family moved from IN to WA state.
