Oregon Township

Wm. and John Marsden came in '41, also A. Jeffrey, W. H. Jenkins, Thos. and Woodford Marr, Isaac Whitsol . . .

As late as '56 there was hardly a tree, few fences and no hedges and but a trace of fruit trees in that township, just clean prairie spotted with the brilliant fires of flowers, lying under the sun and moon and stars. All the farmers raised wheat and corn, and hauled grists to Coppock or Riverside.
