Story  David Landles worked at TKWM as a dyer around the time of the mill’s opening in 1890. 

David Landles was born in 1847 and immigrated to the U S in 1873/4 with his wife Charlotte and two sons, Andrew, and John. The family settled in Massachusetts and, by 1880, David was working in the woolen mills in Amesbury. After that, the family slowly began making its way westward as David found work in several mills across the country, including Salt Lake City. 

By 1890, the family made it all the way to Oregon and David was working at TKWM. He may have been living outside of Salem proper. By 1892, both David had left TKWM. He and his son Andrew took work at a woolen mill in Albany, OR. Shortly after that, the Landis family moved to Bandon, OR for about a year then they moved up to Marshfield (Coos Bay) 

David passed away in 1896 after a long battle with bronchitis. He is buried at the Marshfield Pioneer Cemetery
