Thanks to him for his service, may he rest in continued peace.. hope he liked what he found here..

The Oregonian Archives (2/11/1912 Page 5) has a full page story on the capture of booth by Emory Parady and John W Millington who was also a Portland resident that was involved in the capture of Booth.
Here are a few detail about Emory Paraday from the Oregonian (3/18/1924 Page 10) at the time of his death. Parady was born in Heckmantown NY in 1844, for many years he lived in Nashville MI, and served as the Mayor Judge, councilman, assessor, postmaster, and school board member. At the time of his death in 1924 he had been in Portland about 17 years, and was a shoemaker by trade and lived on SE 63rd.
John W Millington came to Portland about 1902 and was a carpenter by trade, and died 11/8/1914 and is buried at the Grand Army of the Republic cemetery in SW Portland.

Thank you, DG! Interesting!
