9781440056321: Recollections and Opinions of an Old Pioneer (Classic Reprint)

October, 1860, I began to write out my recollections and opinions, intending to leave the manuscript to my children, as I thought that a true account of my opinions, and long and diversified experience, might be of benefit to them and their posterity, though of less importance to others. But I had not progressed very far before I was interrupted by several causes. Since November, 1860, I had not further prosecuted my design until the month of March, 1878. In the month of December, 1877, a learned and distinguished historian, then and now engaged in writing a general history of the Pacific coast, called upon me, and kindly requested me to furnish him with such historical data as I possessed. Having already reduced to writing a considerable portion of my recollections and opinions, I determined to finish the work I had undertaken, and to permit him to take a copy of all, or such portions as he might desire, for his use in preparing his own history.

Excerpt from Recollections and Opinions of an Old Pioneer The early migrations to Oregon were nearly all of the farm ing class and composed of families. The Donation Act became. A law September 27, 1850, and it proved to be a domi nant factor in the early development of the Willamette Valley. Beginning with 1843, thousands of emigrants from the States in the Mississippi Valley, but mostly from Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Arkansas, sold out their small holdings, put their wives and children into wagons and started for Oregon. For this reason the great disparity in the num bers of men and women did not exist there comparable to Washington and California. California was admitted as a State in 1850, and almost the entire population was males, attracted there from all over the world by the discoveries of gold. Washington gained slowly in population during the quarter century following its sepa ration from Oregon. Until about 1860 nearly all the increase was on Puget Sound or west of the Cascade Mountains. Most of it was composed of loggers, millmen. Sailors, etc who were unmarried. The ratio of males to females was not less than nine to one.
