Galesburg Republican-Register, November 5, 1887: A very pleasant company of near relatives and friends met last Saturday morning to witness the marriage of Dr. George E Bellows to Miss Stella Ferris, youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs Sylvanus H. Ferris, at their residence, 214 South Academy street. Besides others there were present Mrs. C. A. Ferris, the venerable mother of the bride’s father, who is now in her 83d year, four of her grandchildren, and three of her great-grandchildren. The following were present from outside the city: Mr. and Mrs. F. I. Moulton, Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Moulton, Kearney Neb; A.B. Moulton, Denver; Mr. and Mrs. E.S. Moulton and son Arthur, Los Angeles, Cal; Mrs. John Aberdeen, Riverside, Cal; Mr. and Mrs. R. O. Ferris and two little girls, Woodhull; Miss Farr, Chicago; Mrs. Mattie Runkle and son; Mrs. Ed Grant, Cromwell, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. W. A. SoRelle, Waco, Texas. The Rev. Favel Bascom, D.D., of Princeton, who performed the ceremony, had thirty-five years and six months previously to a day, united in marriage the father and mother of the bride. The wedding was a quiet and modest affair. The bride wore a tailor made brown broadcloth traveling suit and appeared bright and radiant. A wedding breakfast was served to about fifty of the most intimate friends. The contracting parties took the 10 o’clock train for Kansas City, which is to be their future home, and where Dr. Bellows has already began his professional career. The groom is a brother of Mr. F.D. Bellows, of the firm of Van Shanck & Bellows. A company of friends accompanied the twain to the depot and gave them good wishes. In these kind expressions of future happiness, this paper most heartily joins.

Handbook of Texas Online:

BELLOWS, WARREN SYLVANUS (1889-1967). Warren Sylvanus Bellows, civil engineer, born in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 15, 1889, to Dr. George E. and Stella (Ferris) Bellows. In 1911 he received his degree in civil engineering from the University of Kansas and by 1921 had established a general contracting firm in Houston, the W. S. Bellows Construction Corporation. This firm was responsible for many major constructions in Houston, in addition to several buildings in other Texas cities and on the campuses of the University of Texas, Texas A&M University, Southern Methodist University, and the University of Houston. The Houston buildings include the Auditorium Hotel, one of the first of Bellows's constructions, completed in the 1920s, the Humble Headquarters Building, the American General Insurance Company and Prudential Insurance Regional Headquarters buildings, the First City National Bank, and the Bank of the Southwest. One of the late Houston constructions was the Alley Theatre. Bellows's firm participated in the building of the Naval Air Station, Corpus Christi,qv built hotels in Galveston, Fort Worth, and Mobile, Alabama, and constructed the administration buildings on the campuses of the University of Texas and the University of Houston. Probably his most famous construction was the San Jacinto Monument, at 570 feet the tallest monument in the world when it was completed in 1939 (see San Jacinto monument and museum). Bellows was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, president of the Associated General Contractors of America (1946), chairman of the Houston Port Commission from 1950 to 1954, president of the Houston Chamber of Commerce in 1948-49, member of the board of governors of the University of Houston, and member of the Texas Board of Corrections (see prison system). He was also an industrial member of the War Labor Board during World War II, director of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway, and director of the YMCA. He was a trustee of the M. D. Anderson Foundation, Texas Medical Center, Southwest Research Institute, Southwest Legal Foundation, and Board of Visitors of the University of Texas Cancer Foundation. Bellows was chairman of the Houston Symphony Society and belonged to the Philosophical Society of Texas, the Sons of the Republic of Texas (which in 1967 made him a knight of the Order of San Jacinto), and the Sons of the American Revolution, which awarded him the 1955 Good Citizens Award. His several awards include the Royal Order of Vasa from King Gustav VI of Sweden in 1956, the Distinguished Service Award from the University of Kansas, and the first Annual Meritorious Award of the San Jacinto Chapter of Texas Professional Engineers. On February 3, 1967, Bellows died in Houston; he was survived by his wife, Anna (Williams), and four children. Warren found the W. S. Bellows Construction Corporation in 1914 in Canada, but soon moved the company to Kansas City Mo. In 1920 the company moved to Oklahoma City and won contracts throughout OK, TX, AR and TN. Bellows moved its office to Houston in 1936 soon after it was awarded the contract for the San Jacinto Monument.

He devoted his main attention to this industry and made a name in it of high repute. He suffered from pulmonary ailments sufficient to cause him, under a physician’s advice, to spend some time at the Dangberg Ranch in Nevada where he apparently fully recovered his health. The benefits of his outdoor life proved to be more apparent than genuine for he did not long survive after his return to business. He had taken his proper places in many phases of community life and affairs; in politics being a Republican; in religion a member of the Presbyterian Church and a liberal supporter of charitable and humanitarian works. He loved to hunt and fish and was extremely fond of music and became an accomplished violinist. He married, first, in (February 1851) 1852 in Knox County IL, Dorleska A. Ward who born January 21, 1834 and died 1852 (Jim - I wonder if she died in childbirth?) [dau of Abner and Huldah (Sykes) Ward of Brockport NY] and born to them was:

When Harley arrived in Los Angeles, c1890, he was already a master musician. He immediately undertook to organize a symphony orchestra, and founded and was conductor at the first concert of Los Angeles’ first Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1897, he established the Woman’s Symphony Orchestra, one of the oldest orchestral organizations on the West Coast still active. He was conductor of this group and the Philharmonic Orchestra for 20 years. At the same time he laid plans for the noted Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra, which gave its first concert under his direction February 1, 1898. This first performance was a tribute to Mr. Hamilton’s ability as an arranger and improvisor. He lacked many of the essential instruments for a scheduled Beethoven work but he so arranged the players he had as to render a masterful simulation of the composer’s intent. He continued as conductor of the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra until overwork caused a breakdown in his health in 1913. After his return from a period of rest and recuperation in Europe, he continued briefly as the conductor of the Woman’s Symphony, resigning the post in 1917. He was also the first man to write music to harmonize with the early motion pictures such as “Birth of a Nation” and “Broken Blossoms”. Born to them was:

Seth was trained in the art and profession of architecture and was engaged in that endeavor in Los Angeles. He played the flute in the Uplifters Club Orchestra, which was conducted by his brother-in-law. One of his prized possessions was a letter from President Lincoln to his aunt, Miss Nettie Farnham, inviting her to dinner; on the back of the letter was the original script of the draft of her reply in which she regrets her inability to accept because the dinner fell on Wednesday Prayer Meeting night and she played the organ.

Wonder who this guy is: November 25, 1999, Thursday, 7:45 a.m. Stewartsville, VA — Three elementary pupils were hospitalized yesterday after their school bus driver either fell asleep or passed out while driving the children to school, state police said. Nine other pupils sustained minor injuries in the Bedford County crash, which happened about 7:45 a.m. when the driver, Ferris Booth Sr., 55, ran off a cul-de-sac, went down an embankment and hit a tree, Trooper G.R.

Samuel was two years old when his parents moved to Knox County, near Galesburg, settling on the C.M. Felt farm where he spent most of the years of his life. At the age of seventeen, young Samuel in company of others walked and drove an ox team to the state of Oregon, being on the road many weeks and having many thrilling experiences. For six weeks he and his party had nothing to eat but beefsteak and they had to keep close watch of the Indians. From Oregon he went south into California where he cast his first Presidential vote in voting for John C. Fremont. To do this, he walked thirty miles in company with two other men, who are thought to have been Galesburg men. From California he went by boat south to the Isthmus of South America, across that, and then by boat to Cuba and from there, back to Galesburg. Soon after his return he made another trip west, this time by boat to Idaho in the company with his brother Nathan. They attempted to find their father's grave, but did not succeed and today it is not known where the remains of the father lie. He married, first, November 22, 1859 in Knox County, Adalaide Rozalie Jones, who died April 17, 1872/3. They lived on his farm, which had come to him, upon the death of his father.
