Description Matilda Mock Shumway (1852-1938). Matilda accompanied her mother, Nancy, and step-father, John J. Campbell, to Baker County in 1862 and spent the winter in a cabin near the later site of Geiser-Pollman Park. Nancy divorced Campbell in 1864 and married Paul L. Shumway of Mormon Basin in 1865. At age 14, Matilda married Paul's brother, James R. Shumway, in 1866. In 1870, Matilda and James, along with Nancy and Paul and Matilda's brother, John, relocated to Couse Creek south of Walla Walla in Umatilla County, Oregon.
