Herbert was born in 1889 and married Myrtle Evelyn Bonney in 1907.Tenino is a community a dozen miles south of Olympia in south central Thurston County. Located on a prairie Tenino was at the junction of Indian, military and civilian roads between Fort Vancouver, Fort Steilacoom and Olympia. The Indian name means "...fork or junction," and probably referred to the Indian trail crossings. Other stories ascribe the name source to: (1) the figures 10-9-0 on a railroad survey stake; (2) the same numbers on a railway locomotive that once operated on the line. less
