Capt. Hans Henry Buhne's descendants are slipping away

There are still a few families with direct lineages to the area's first white settlers, but one among the most well-known is slowly fading away with the recent passing of Henry Buhne Redmond -- the great-grandson of Captain Hans Henry Buhne, among the crew of the schooner Laura Virginia that arrived on Humboldt Bay in April 1850.

hmmmm. All of the members of a pioneer family have left the area. Does that tell you something? The future is not here.

I climbed on Buhne Point as a 12 year old and then when PG&E came in they leveled it when they took the road for their plant and moved our road south to enter King Salmon and our road became Buhne Drive. We did not know what they were building and later found out it was a nuclear plant. Imagine our surprise when a neighbor and I took a boat ride into a canal where PG&E was building and workers told us "Don't touch the water" ....it made no sense to us as the water went into all the canals at King Salmon and then into Humboldt Bay!

Right on this place is going to POT .The Radical Environmentalists pot heads have destroyed any opportunity for living wage jobs hear on the north coast .Young people that do not want to grow pot and collect disability by being dishonest .Now have very little choice but to get out and hope for a better future somewhere where opportunity still exists..

"...area's first white settlers"

Did H.B. Redmond develop the Redmond Road neighborhood just north/northwest from Three Corners Market (near Freshawater School) along the newly repaved county road?

What the hell are you talking about? You want an argument, go down to Arcata Plaza and yell at a hippy! I'm a working schmoe just like yourself but I don't think that using up all our resources (i.e. cutting down the headwaters) and polluting our waterways is the long-term goals for sustainability. The economy in Humboldt County is a poor, small economy not a large, Wal-Mart laddened, industrial capital like Southern California. You want opportunity go to Southern CA and join the rest of your conservatives

yep, Redway, CA.

The San Joaquin Valley and Roseville/Rocklin and Lincoln are the last large repubican strongholds here in CA. Even San Diego, Orange County and the coastal cities like Santa Barbara are now in the middle of the road and not so hard right.

Time, Eureka, CA.

No offense, butt if you want to live in a forest gump dreamworld, move to the bible-belt where you can marry your sister!

Thanks for the story. Hank was a cool dude who very much enjoyed life. Thanks for the positive comments. History gives roots and stability. Join the "Humboldt Historical Society" to help gain a further appreciation for the families, events and places that have made Humboldt County what it is. And it is a very good place regardless of those who only see the negative.

That's really really STUPID to turn a story about on of the first settlers in to your own little rant about pot. And then to add we should have cut down the last of the old growth is even less bright. I'm sure you have a great education as well . You seem very simple sir.

I knew Hank as a child as i only lived 5 blocks from him and I knew hes Mother well . They lived on the corner of Henderson and H st. Hank was always just a big kid. He had big ideas about changeing Buhnes Hardware but he did not understand the business moved it to 7th and E st. and lost it all. The old family home was torn down. It was between 7th and 8th st later the White house was built on the corner there. oh The good old days in Eureka

Redmond road was named for the Redmonds who had a small ranch at the end of the road. This was Sheriff Redmond, Henry's grandfather. A woman in Andy Genzoli's Humboldt History class at College of the Redwoods did a story on Redmond Road in the middle 70's if I remember right. The Humboldt Historical Society should have a copy, it talks about the cafe and families that lived along the road.
