Jesse Yenney / Yenne was the youngest in the family, born 22 Mar 1860 in (Wetzel) Virginia [now West Virginia]. He married
Martha Ann Albrighton, daughter of Joseph C and Elizabeth (Allbritten) Albritton.

Notes:

Jesse was in Montana National Guard, Company H, 16 August 1897

From “The Inter Lake” Kalispell, Montana 27 October 1899.
He brought the first sweet cherries (conflicting info, apples) into the into the Valley and they settled on the east side of Flathead Lake.   He settled just past Bigfork at what is still called Yenne Point today. Flathead cherries are famous for their sweetness and wonderful flavor.

Uncle Jesse had an orchard where now, there is a housing development.   It’s called Yenne Point on Flathead Lake near Bigfork (on the NE side of the lake).
Jesse Yenne owned 120 acres (20 028 N 021 W 022) Patent document ID#   786 cash Nov. 1st 1904
Jesse carried the flour grinding wheel up from Missoula (Missoula to Kalispell – 120 miles) on his back before they had a road!   He was a very big man — “he must have been 6’5″ or 6’7″ and he was built really big.”   Jesse couldn’t write.
He was quite the business man.   Anna tells on the reunion tape her memories of how smart he was and it’s really obvious to me that she adored her Uncle Jesse.   Anyway, Jesse and Martha were apparently very good with kids and loved them enormously.

“Lumber and Grist Grinding”
The spring, 1890, Father bought a one-half interest in a grist sawmill at Mill Creek, east of where Creston is now.   The mill had been built by George and Jesse Yenne. (Creston – a few <10> miles east of Kalispell on Hwy 2)
page 156 LOGGING AND SAWMILLS
One of the first sawmills in Flathead Valley was built on Mill Creek near what is now Creston by George Yenne.   The mill was equipped with old-fashioned English gate saws that worked up and down.   A few years later,
ownership of the mill passed to Jesse Yenne who installed circular saws.   [A photo of the Yenne & Eccles Mill in 1890 found on this page.]

page 187 EAST OF THE FLATHEAD RIVER, by Linda Norem
The main establishment in Egan was a store started by Jesse Yenne, a well-known millman.   He started the first store in May, 1885.   William and Ralph Ramsdell bought out Yenne’s interests in December, 1887.
**Egan: Post office established in 1888, with Jesse Yenne as postmaster. Across the Flathead River and to the east of Demersville, about four miles.
page 189 THE UPPER MILL CREEK AREA, by Debbie Sanders and Keith Hammer
The first productive establishment to be started in this area was a small sawmill built by Jesse Yenne.   It was located upstream from the present fish hatchery, but it is now submerged in the Jessup Mill Pond.   At this time the area had not been cleared, and the creek, then known as Lang Creek, was still a free-flowing stream.
page 190 – The sawmill became known as the Yenne-Eccles Mill when Joseph Eccles entered into partnership with Yenne.   The mill did not become very productive and did not provide enough lumber for other areas, and so several years later Yenne, being a jack-of-all-grades, started a larger sawmill in conjunction with a grist mill farther downstream.   This allowed for the production of both finished lumber and a patent flour, equal to imported brands…
The first flour mill on the east side was erected by George M. and Jesse Yenne.   Jesse Yenne and James Lang had hauled the equipment through the snow from the west side of Flathead Lake during the winter of 1886-87.   It ran on Mill Creek, turning out excellent products but didn’t last long because the men didn’t own the water rights.
page 201 BIGFORK “The East Shore” – Jesse Yenney homesteaded on the east shore at what is now known as Yenney’s Point.   He is believed to be the first person to grow apples in the area.

page 57 – The village of Egan grew up about a mile east of the ferry on rich level land.   There were several nice residences, a good hotel and boarding house, blacksmith shop, livery stable, two saloons and an excellent store.
This store was first started in May, 1885, by Jess Yenne, and sold by him in December 1887 to Ralph and Billy Ramsdell.   The following February, 1888, three miles south of Egan on Lang Creek (sometimes called Mill Creek), George and Jesse Yenne started a grist mill for flour, and produced an excellent flour for many years; this soon developed into a sawmill and planer also, which with its bunkhouses and dining rooms, carpenter and blacksmith shop was almost a village in itself (Yenneville). The Yenne families later developed a fine fruit farm on the east shore of Flathead Lake.
page 79 – March, 1892:   B. J. McIntire made an “address” and signed up as one of the 30 charter members of the General Lyons Post of “old soldiers” organized March 11, 1892, at Conrad’s Hall, Kalispell.   Other “old soldiers” were McKay, Palmer, Plume, Ayres, Meyers, Emerson, Trent, Gregg, Sherer, Haak, Bowdish, Gregg, Wait, Hogue, Lloyd, Yenne, Judge, Apgar, Parsons, Lee and Burnham–this is only about half, all others are requested to become charter members at the next meeting.
page 105 – In 1887, the word that the Great Northern Railroad was building toward the Flathead offered another opportunity: the brothers bought out Jesse Yenne’s store at Egan…
FLATHEAD LAKE, FROM GLACIERS TO CHERRIES, by R.C. “Chuck” Robbin.   Call #   978.68 Robbin.   on pages 41 & 42. – Jesse Yenne homesteaded at what was known as Yenne’s Point around 1900.   The point is today known by that name.   Most of the fruit raised in the area were apples, with Yenne growing the first ones.   He was interested in logging, having logged the Weberg place south of Woods Bay and the Bellmore property about one half mile north of the same area.
Another book is “The Southeast Quarter” by Lloyd Fagerland.   It is a collection of stories about the people in the Bigfork and surrounding area.   Page 59 “local happenings 1914-1915″…Walter Hanson bought a Ford car and was learning to drive.   A week or two before that item made the news, there was a note that Walter Hart was giving Hanson a driving lesson. The car became disabled while attempting to turn around at Yennes and the pair had to walk back to town.
Page 63….Jesse Yenne, who originally settled in the Egan Community, now lived on the point at Woods Bay that bears his name.   The Yennes had changed their name from Yenney, which had the unusual distinction of being spelled the same from either end.   The “News” reported that Yenne was suffering from a severe case of gout, which he believed was caused from eating too many sour cherries.   Another story noted that he had sold $60 worth of beans to the Flathead Commercial.   Yenne had a large orchard with several different kinds of fruit trees.   – from Deborah Aldrich: hdtjme@webtv.net
(J.C. Wood planted the first cherry trees consisting of the Bing and Royal Anne varieties.   He was also the first orchardist to test the possibilities of shipping cherries to distant markets. Wood’s cherries, shipped all the way to New York, came through in find shape, proving that Flathead cherries were some of the best shipping cherries in the nation, holding their flavor and quality for a week to 10 days under the right conditions.)

from the book:
“Before Kalispell: Demersville, Ashley, Egan, Half Moon, Salish”
by Paul Strong
page 29
…In 1887, Jesse Yenne opened a saw mill on Mill Creek south of Egan. This area he called Yenneville.   This was the first steam operated mill in the valley and provided much of the lumber for the town of Demersville.   In Dec., 1888, Yenne announced that he would build a grist mill to process grain.   This would eliminate the necessity of hauling grain the 120 miles to Missoula to have it floured.   This mill did not open until Jan., 1891.   The stones were shipped in from the Wahburn-Crosby Mill of Minneapolis.   The top stone weighed 1,000 pounds.   The name Yenneyville never stuck to this area though it became quite a settlement in its own rite.   Instead it was always considered a part of Egan, though it was located some ways from it. Before it disappeared, Yenneyville consisted of the saw mill, grist mill and a brewery.
page 35
…There is no record in the “interlake” of any legal action taken against the Indians.   Mr. Deschamp did site Yenne and Eccles for allowing saw dust to enter Mill Creek below their saw mill.   The Mill was located back from the river on the east side.   It was the first saw mill built on the east side and the first steam operated mill in the valley.   Yenne and Eccles were fined $50.00.

…This may be why, when Demersville started to grow rapidly the “Dora” could be found moving back and forth between the Yenne saw mill and the Demersville dock.   Yenne had built a tram from the mill down to the rivers edge so that lumber could be loaded straight onto the “Dora” for transport across the river.
…This one was much larger than the “Grant” and built from lumber made in the Yenne Saw Mill.
page 80
Yenne is building a tram from his saw mill on Mill Creek, down to the river.   This will allow the transport of finished lumber down to the river where it can be easily loaded onto a barge (this is the “Dora”) and brought to Demersville.

Notes:

Born during United States civil war.
Aunt Martha actually died in the County Hospital and had been there a year,
According to this death certificate name written as Yenney
Auntie Sadie said they had no children of their own, but did take care of Joe Yenne’s 2 kids for years…..Hmmm.   I have listed under my note that Jesse & Martha cared for the two kids these names:
