My Father was born and raised in Reedville Oregon. I know There used to a lot of PALMAtEER's in oregon and I heard they came there in the 1840's 1850's
Dad changed the spelling of his name while working in the Portland Shipyard during World War I (one). He sais he had two cousins working there with same name as him and it got confusing.
would like to hear from any Palmateers from the area who might be related..
