GALLOWAY Roots: The Oregon Trail of 1864/65

GALLOWAY, FERRELL, AKERS, SCOTT, MCCUTCHEON and KUTCH Lineage

In 1864 a wagon train of about seven prairie schooners departed from Indiana and Iowa bound for Oregon. Little information remains about the trip. This train was made up of family members, to the degree that everyone was related if only through marriage. I have a vested interest in this wagon train since my great grandparents (John Thomas GALLOWAY and Elizabeth Jane ADAMS) were members of the train. In a general sense we know a great deal about all those pioneers who gave up virtually all of their earthly belongings and family ties to find a better life in the fertile Willamette Valley of Oregon. Through the Homestead Act of the Lincoln administration petitioners could gain access to 160 acres of land. This journal will be my best reconstruction of members and significant events on the trail. Before going further it is necessary to give credit where credit is due. Bob and Maggie Mahan have been an important resource for this journal. Without their help this journal would have had some serious exclusions. Following is a general description of The Oregon Trail:

From: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-oregontrail.html Oregon Trail-Pathway to the West

The Oregon Trail became one of the key migration routes that pioneers crossed on their way to the vast west. Spanning over half the continent the trail proceeded over 2,170 miles west through territories that would later become Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon. The long journey through endless plains, rolling hills, and mountain passes, began in Independence, Missouri and ended at the Columbia River in Oregon.

The route of the Oregon Trail began to be scouted as early as 1823 by fur traders and explorers. By the 1830s, it was used regularly by mountain men, traders, missionaries, and military expeditions.
At the same time, small groups of individuals and the occasional family attempted to follow the trail, with some succeeding in arriving at Fort Vancouver in Washington.

On May 16, 1842 the first organized wagon train on the Oregon Trail set out from Elm Grove, Missouri, with more than 100 pioneers. The following year, an estimated 800 immigrants arrived in the Willamette Valley. Hundreds of thousands more would follow, especially after gold was discovered in California in 1849.

While the first few parties organized and departed from Elm Grove, Missouri, the Oregon Trail's generally designated starting point was Independence or Westport, Missouri. The trail ended at Oregon City, Oregon, which was the proposed capital of the Oregon Territory at the time. However, many settlers branched off or grew exhausted short of this goal and settled at convenient or promising locations along the way.

At many places along the trail, alternate routes called "cutoffs" were established, either to shorten the trail, or to get around difficult terrain. The Lander and Sublette cutoffs provided shorter routes through the mountains than the main route, bypassing Fort Bridger, Wyoming. In later years, the Salt Lake cutoff provided a route to Salt Lake City.

The Oregon Trail was too long and arduous for the standard Conestoga wagons used in the eastern U.S. for most freight transport. These big wagons had a reputation for killing their oxen teams approximately two thirds along the trail and leaving their unfortunate owners stranded in desolate, isolated territory. The only solution was to abandon all belongings and traipse onward with the supplies and tools that could be carried or dragged. In one case in 1846, the Donner Party, en route to California, was stranded in the Sierra Nevada in November and had to resort to cannibalism to survive.

This led to the rapid development of the prairie schooner. Though this wagon looked similar, it was approximately half the size of the big Conestogas and also manufactured in quantity by the Conestoga Brothers. It was designed for the conditions and was a marvel of engineering in its time.

Pioneers on the Oregon Trail followed various rivers and used landmarks along the trail to guide their way and gauge their progress. Within Nebraska, the Oregon Trail followed the Platte River and then the North Platte River into Wyoming. Along this part of the journey, the Great Plains started giving way to bluffs and hills that were the precursor of the Rocky Mountains. After crossing the Rockies through South Pass, the trail followed the Snake River to the Columbia River. From there, emigrants had the option of either rafting down the Columbia to Fort Vancouver, or taking the Barlow Road to the Willamette Valley and other destinations in what are now the states of Washington and Oregon.

Many rock formations became famous landmarks that Oregon Trail pioneers used to navigate, as well as leave messages for pioneers following behind them.

Back to our little family wagon train of 1864. Most likely our family train began as two smaller trains. Our family groups had origins in Iowa and Indiana as provided by the 1860 census reports and birth records. The pioneers from Indiana were:

1.Clemmons Green SCOTT and his wife Mahala Ann MCCUTCHEON
2.John Thomas GALLOWAY, his wife Elizabeth Jane ADAMS and their daughter Elizabeth Jane (Lizzy) GALLOWAY
3.John MCCUTCHEON and wife Mary Isabel AKERS and children Samuel Marion, Cyrus Belle, James Thornton, Elizabeth Ellen and Elia Ann

The pioneers from Iowa were:
1.Michael GALLOWAY, his wife Mathena Ann FERRELL and their daughter Mahala GALLOWAY
2.William Eldon MCCUTCHEON, his wife Elizabeth GALLOWAY, William's sons William Eldon Jr. and James Fulton
3.William T KUTCH and wife Hannah Mary MCCUTCHEON
4.John Jackson GALLOWAY Jr., his wife Mary Elizabeth (Betty) AKERS, and children Hannah Mary and James Sherman
5.Samuel MCCUTCHEON his wife Charlotte (surname unknown) and their sons James, Hiram Morris and John

It is not clear whether the family units from Indiana and Iowa were the foundation for the prairie schooner make ups that proceeded to Oregon. William Eldon MCCUTCHEON was 73 years old when the group headed west. It is more likely William Eldon MCCUTCHEON Sr., his wife Elizabeth Galloway and his sons William Eldon Jr. and James Fulton traveled in a different wagon. The most likely arrangement would have been for William Eldon Sr., his wife Elizabeth, his sons William Eldon Jr. and James to travel with William Eldson's daughter Hannah Mary MCCUTCHEON and her husband William T KUTCH.

An even more perplexing problem was the family of John MCCUTCHEON, his wife Mary Isabel AKERS and their five children. Could they all survive in one small schooner? The childrn ranged in ages 2 through 13. The healthy members of the train probably walked. Most historians point out the misery of riding in the wagons over rough terrain.

At the risk of being wrong I have assembled the wagon train members as follows:

Wagon 1.Clemmons Green SCOTT, his wife Mahala Ann MCCUTCHEON, Mahala's father William Eldon MCCUTCHEON Sr., her stepmother Elizabeth GALLOWAY, brothers William Eldon MCCUTCHEON Jr. and James Fulton MCCUTHEON
Wagon 2.Michael GALLOWAY, his wife Mathena Ann FERRELL and their daughter Mahala GALLOWAY
Wagon 3.John Thomas GALLOWAY, his wife Elizabeth Jane ADAMS and their daughter Elizabeth Jane (LIZZY) GALLOWAY
Wagon 4.John MCCUTCHEON his wife Mary Isabel AKERS and their children Samuel Marion, Cyrus Bell, James Thornton, Elizabeth Ellen and Elia Ann.
Wagon 5. Samuel MCCUTCHEON, his wife Charlotte (surname unknown), their sons James, Hiram Morris, and John
Wagon 6. William T KUTCH his wife Hannah Mary MCCUTCHEON
Wagon 7. John Jackson Galloway Jr., his wife Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Adkins, their children Hannah Mary and James Sherman

Out of this assemblage of 29 people there are a group of walkers. As we said earlier, walking was often preferable to riding in a bouncing prairie schooner. The first person listed in the wagon was probably the driver. My list of probable walkers:
1.Mahala Ann MCCUTCHEON
2.William Eldon MCCUTCHEON Jr.
3.James Fulton MCCUTCHEON
4.Mathena Ann FERRELL
5.Mahala GALLOWAY
6.Elizabeth Jane ADAMS (She would have walked close to her own wagon because of her infant daughter)
7.Mary Isabel AKERS (She would have walked close to her own wagon because of her infant daugters)
8.Samuel Marion MCCUTCHEON
9.Cyrus Bell MCCUTCHEON
10.James Thornton MCCUTCHEON (A sometimes walker, he was only six years old)
11.Charlotte ? (She would have walked close to her own wagon because of her infant son)
12.James MCCUTCHEON

Hannah Mary MCCUTCHEON might have been a part time walker. She was pregnant with her first born son. All people unmentioned as walkers or drivers probably rode in the schooners for the most part.

James Sherman Galloway was a very small infant on the Oregon Trail, he took his first wobbly steps on the trail.

Sometimes we tend to underestimate the problems these people encountered. A number of rivers such as the Kansas, South Platte, North Platte, Snake and the mighty Columbia had to be crossed. The Blue Mts and Cascades of Oregon had to be traversed. These obstacles were hard on humans, beasts and equipment.

TRAGEDY ON THE TRAIL-Crossing The South Platte River
----------------------------------------------------
The following is an excerpt from http://www.nps.gov/oreg/planyourvisit/site5.htm
California Hill/Upper Crossing of the South Platte River - Brule, Nebraska

Near North Platte Nebraska, the Platte River splits into two major forks, with the South Platte running generally southwest towards Denver and the North Platte heading northwest towards Fort Laramie. Sooner or later, the emigrants were forced to cross the South Platte in order to reach and follow the North Platte towards South Pass.

Several crossing sites were used, but the Upper Crossing was the most important because it led directly to Ash Hollow, the best approach to the North Platte River. California Hill, encountered immediately after crossing the South Platte, was the first major grade faced by the emigrants. This necessitated a climb of 240 feet in just over 1 miles in order to reach the plateau between the North and South Platte Rivers. Imposing trail ruts are still plainly visible most of the way up the hill.

The Nebraska State Historical Society, who owns the resource, invites you to get out of your car and walk in the footsteps of the pioneers. The panoramic views back toward California Crossing are spectacular.

Returning to our wagon train, the date is probably July 14 1864. Our train is running behind time. The goal is to reach Independence Rock in Wyoming by July 4. They are about 200 miles from Independence Rock. At this date tragedy hits our little train. John MCCUTCHEON drowned while crossing the river. We know very little more. We assume he was driving his own schooner.

We don't know whether John MCCUTCHEON always planned to go to California or if his widow changed her mind after John's death. At any rate, near present Fort Bridger Wyoming Mary Isabel AKERS and her followers say good bye to the other pioneers and take The California cut-off. And yes, she traveled the same route as the ill-fated Donner party. What a strong woman she was. Those that went with Mary Isabel AKERS were her five children, Samuel Marion MCCUTCHEON, Cyrus Bell MCCUTCHEON, James Thornton MCCUTCHEON, Elizabeth Ellen MCCUTCHEON and Alia Ann MCCUTCHEON.

Our wagon train moves on again through South Pass Wyoming, a gentle incline through the continental divide. Where as all rivers have generally traveled in an easterly direction, from now on they will travel in a westerly direction. In present day Idaho the party joins the Snake River and follows it to the present day Oregon border. Following is a description from http://www.stateparks.com/three_island_crossing.html

Three Island Crossing State Park is located on the Snake River at Glenns Ferry. It is home to The Oregon Trail History and Education Center where visitors can learn about pioneer emigrants and Native American history.

Oregon Trail pioneers knew this spot well. It was one of the most famous river crossings on the historic trail. Pioneer travelers used the three-island crossing until 1869, when Gus Glenn constructed a ferry about two miles upstream. The Glenns Ferry community sponsors a crossing commemoration the second Saturday of each August. Events often include living history presentations and historic skills fair.

From this point the trail follows gentle hills through a semi desert area. As the party moves west the Wallowa Mt. range looms to the north and the Blue Mts. are to the west. About 100 miles inside the Oregon border is present day Baker City, Oregon. An Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is located about five miles north of present day Baker City. Very close to the interpretive center a wonderful event occurred for our little party. On Jan. 16, 1865 William Eldon KUTCH made his debut to the world. He was the proud son of William T KUTCH and his wife Hannah Mary MCCUTCHEON. The KUTCH family probably wintered out in Baker City. The town was in its infancy in 1865. By 1866 the town had a post office. And of course, there were some necessities such as water. We assume the Kutch family moved on to the Willamette Valley the spring of 1865.

We don't know when the entire party arrived at Baker City, but it had to be well in advance of Jan. 1865. We do know our party was continually running behind time. The main portion of the party, minus the KUTCH family and the John MCCUTCHEON family may have moved on towards present day La Grande, Oregon. The distance between Baker City and La Grande is about 80 miles. La Grande is the eastern gateway to the Blue Mts. Their is no practical way of skirting the range.

Ahead are the Blue Mts and later an even greater obstacle, the Cascade Mt. range. I believe our party had some serious discussions on whether to winter in La Grande. Although La Grande is a beautiful town, it would not be my first choice to winter out in. Winters are brutal. The eastern side of the Blue Mts. end at La Grande and the Wallowas are immediately to the north.

It was at La Grande where John Thomas GALLOWAY, his wife Elizabeth Jane ADAMS and their little girl Elizabeth Jane (Lizzy) GALLOWAY spent the winter of 1864/65. Clyde M Senger has researched the GALLOWAY families of the Northwest extensively. All GALLOWAY kin folk of the Northwest owe him a "thank you". Although some of his dates turn out wrong, in general his findings are correct. He says John Thomas Galloway reached LaGrande in mid November. If this is true, then our little party is in deep trouble. The target time to reach Oregon City, Oregon (end of the trail)was four to six months. If our dates are right it took our little train four months to travel from the Wyoming border to La Grande. I have to believe this was going through John Thomas's mind. Additionally, John Thomas's wife, Elizabeth Jane Adams is pregnant. She will give birth in Dayton, Yamill County, Oregon Apr 15 1865 to Michael Bledsoe GALLOWAY. If all these dates are correct, then we must assume the John Thomas Galloway family moved to the Willamette Valley very early in spring 1865. As far as I can determine, Michael Bledsoe Galloway was the only child conceived on the trail.

I have not found where any of the other pioneers remained in La Grande that winter. The distance between La Grande and Pendleton (western approach to the Blue Mts.) is about 50 miles. I have travelled this leg of I84 during November. The trip was packed snow and ice the entire way. On the western decline the Oregon Trail is virtually lock step with US 30 and close to I84. The decline is variously called Cabbage Hill or Immigrant Hill (in memory of the pioneers). It is so steep it has truck runaway ramps. The old pioneers took a turn of rope tethered to trees to keep the wagons from getting away. Common sense tells me all five wagons wintered in La Grande. Of course we cannot be sure that five wagons might have wintered out in Baker City. Baker City winters are slightly more brutal than La Grande. In any event a miserable winter was spent in Eastern Oregon.

My best guess is the main body of the wagon train waited in La Grande for the arrival of the KUTCH family. All six wagons are again poised for the crossing of the Blue Mts. It is early spring of 1865. Genealogists have typically assumed their were two family parties because 1864 and 1865 are both given as the dates. When all the details are examined we know there was only one train. Pendleton had to be a welcome sight. From there the route runs north into present day Walla Walla Washingon. The Whitman mission is located here and a place to repair wagons and purchase supplies. From here the party will trudge on, reappearing in Oregon again near present day Umatilla and the Columbia River. The next 100 miles will be relatively easy. There will be two major river crossings, The John Day and the Deschutes The trail follows the Columbia to The Dalles. On a clear day, from a distance of about 80 miles due west a giant white clad mountain appears. It is Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood had to be a glorious sight. The party is now in a semi desert area with rolling basalt hills cascading to the Columbia River.

A little wagon train of six wagons now roll into The Dalles, Oregon. It must have been a strange sight for the locals to see a wagon train appear so early in the spring. The Dalles, Oregon was a major stopping place for repairs and supplies. It was also the place where the wagons could hazzard a raft down the Columbia or take the Barlow Toll Road. The raft down the Columbia was next to suicidal. I am ninety nine per-cent sure they chose The Barlow Toll Road. The fee for the toll road was $5.00 for each wagon and 10 cents for each farm animal.

The Barlow Toll Road leaves The Dalles and heads west southwest into Tygh Valley and the Cascade range. The Cascades are one of the most magnificent, if not the most magnificent mountain range in the 48 contiguous states. To accomplish the task, the toll road skirts around the east side of Mt Hood till it reaches the White River fed by the White Glacier. From their it reaches pass level at about 4000 feet. From there it descends into western Oregon. Following first the Sandy River from its origins of the Sandy Glacier on the west side of the mountain and finally the Clackamas River which is fed from a number of rivers on the south side of Mt. Hood. The Clackamas river brings us to the end of The Oregon Trail at Oregon City.

We know this much, all seven wagons reached their destinations. Six wagons arrived at Oregon City and one probably arrived at Sacramento. Yes we know Mary Isabel AKERS finished her cross country trip. She died in Tulare California in 1904.

I do not believe this journal is the final word on the wagon train. I sincerely request readers to add pertinent information or corrections they are aware of in the comments section and I promise to research them.

Post Scripts:

(1)As a young teen I (Dale McKinnon) met my great aunt Elizabeth Jane (Lizzy Galloway). My parents and I took a trip from Utah to Oregon soon after WWII. Aunt Lizzy lived near the top of Mt Tabor on Hawthorne St. in Portland. She was a dear old lady by that time and very possibly my Dad's favorite aunt. She was married to Johnny NcFerron. A few years later my brother and sister in law lived with aunt Lizzy and Johnny. My brother Bob was attending Western Baptist Theological Seminary at the top of Mt. Tabor in Portland for his Masters of Theology . Both Bob and Jane adored aunt Lizzy.

(2)I (Dale McKinnon) also met siblings of Lizzy Galloway in the persons of Michael Bledsoe Galloway and Estella Galloway.

(3)Again I (Dale McKinnon) have a stranger than fiction story. Soon after World War II our family relocated from Utah to the Carlton, Oregon area. Our family regularly attended the First Baptist Church of Carlton. One of the deacons of the church (Walter Scott) approached my father and explained they were related. I am sure Dad wanted to believe Walter but he had no information to provide. In fact Walter and my father (Clarence McKinnon) were second cousins once removed. Walter Alvin Scott was a descendant of Clemmons Green Scott. Walter had a pretty daughter named Marjorie Ann Scott and my brother was secretly smitten with her. Marjorie and I atteded Carlton High School at the same time. She was a senior and I was a freshman. Following is additional genealogical info on the Scott family:

My MCKINNON Genealogy

My MCKINNON Clan

1st Generation:Lord Michael MCKINNON b abt 1708 on Isle of Skye Invernrss Shire Scotland and m to Mamie ?
Issue:Daniel and Joseph. Lord Michael, Daniel and Joseph all immigrated to the new world before 1753.

2nd Generatio:
Daniel; Son of Lord Michael and Mamie b abt 1730 on Isle of Skye Inverness Shire Scotland and d abt 1776. Much conjecture surrounds Daniel. I have spent considerable time resolving the confusion. Some genealogists list him with four wives. After some research I believe he was married once. Part of the problem surrounds a Catherine LANHAM and a Catherine DAWSON. Catherine DAWSON married Edward LANHAM and this marriage produced one child, Robert Poore LANHAM. Edward LANHAM died young and the widow Catherine married Daniel MCKINNON about 1760 in Pennsylvania. I am unable to ascertain why Catherine was nicknamed Polly. Daniel and Catherine's first child was a Catherine and nicknamed Katie. Following is an account of the marriage:

By Lucille T Cox

East Liverpool Review 14 July 1938

The Isle of Skye off the coast of Scotland produces men who place duty before personal inclinations. Such a man was Lord Michael McKinnon, native of the island. He trained his children to adhere to their ideas and sacrifice everything to duty.

Early in 1770, two of his sons, Daniel and Joseph, came to America. Daniel, a high Episcopal preacher to George IV of England, was sent by the crown to the Church at Philadelphia.

He was a man of decided opinions and did not fit in well with the growing tendency in the colonies to question the crowns authority. He was a staunch Royalist and preached his convictions from the pulpit. His belief, however, did not prevent his marriage to Miss Polly Dawson, a lovely colonial girl, who was a member of an ardent Whig family.

For everal years Polly was very happy with her ecclesiastical husband. A daughter, whom they named Katie, was born.

The young wife, however, did experience troublesome moments when her family reproached her for her husbands denunciation of the American cause.

One night Polly retired early. Later she was awakened by angry shouting in the lower hall. She went to the top of the wide, shallow stairway and looked down into the hall. Below were a number of men. In the front line, pressing close to her husband, who was standing on the second step, were her father and brother, Daniel. The minister, partially dressed, his thin intelligent face pale in the light of the candelabrum, was speaking quietly.

I will not take the Oath of Allegiance against my king. I am the servant of the Church and His Majesty is its head. I will not denounce him for a group of people who are rebelling against a just and kind ruler.

Wrathful shouts filled the hall. The colonists surged forward but Rev McKinnon did not move. Pollys brother looked up and saw his sister standing in the shadows. If ye will not take the oath, then ye must go back to England and my sister and her child will stay her in America, he shouted.

The minister turned quickly and held out his hand to his wife, who came swiftly down the steps. Daniel, she said, please take these men and go away. My husband and I will settle this question.

Finally the crown dispersed and Polly turned back up the stairs, accompanied byher husband. But neither slept that night. Polly pleaded and begged that he take the Oath of Allegiance, but her husband remained adamant. Finally the girl decided words were useless. She was sad at the thought of leaving her family, but there was no question in her loyal heart but that she must go with her husband. Her family decided otherwise. They forced her to change her mind and she left her husband with these last words ringing in her ears: If you go with them, Polly, we will never see each other again.

Family obligations ruled, however, for Polly, and one bleak winter morning Daniel McKinnon sailed for England, alone.

Daniel Dawson sold all his possessions and together with his family, Polly, and the baby started West. They crossed the Allegheny Mountains on pack mules. Snow and bitter cold combined with the danger of Indian attacks to harass the little party until it reached fort Pitt. Polly was apathetic. She loved her husband and in her heart was hoping for the time when he would either come or send for her. At times Daniel Dawson was conscience-stricken as he watched his sister, but he was certain the family decision was right.

The party remained at Fort Pitt until spring. In the meantime, Dawson had been hunting for a suitable place to farm. At las he found it, high on the hills overlooking the Ohio River, between Little and Big Beaver Creeks. Early in April he brought his family and sister to their new home. They were the first settlers in what is now Ohioville, Pennsylvania.

The young wife waited anxiously for those long expected mail days . But no mail arrived from England. Daniel McKinnon was keeping his promise. One day years later Joseph McKinnon, the younger brother who had chosen to remain in America, came to visit his sister-in-law. He told Polly her husband had been made a bishop in the Church and was a favorite of the King. He would never return to America.

From then until her death, Polly heard no more of her husband. She was buried in the Ohioville Cemetery.

Back to the real world, the dates and events I (Dale McKinnon) have, substantiate the story for the most part. I seriously doubt the story of Joseph relating Daniel being a Bishop in the Anglican church. I now believe he died at sea at Salawesi, Tangah, Indonesia in 1776. Perhaps he was on his way to a new mission field. At first glance I viewed Daniel with considerable disdain. I now have much more respect for him regardless of his political leanings. If all the parts of the story are correct, then we must assume Catherine was pregnant with our ancestor Daniel II born Apr 16 1767.



3rd Generation:Issue of Daniel MCKINNON (son of Lord Michael and Mamie) and spouse Catherine ? are: Catherine "Katie" b about 1766 and Daniel b Apr 16 1767 in Fayette City, Fayette Pennsylvania and d Aug 25 1837 in Moorefield Clark Ohio. Daniel married Nancy HARRISON 1772-1856. Although I am not going into the HARRISON line at this time it is mind boggling of the historic people she is related to. Through Nancy I am related to President James MADISON, Colonel William CRAWFORD, and all the royal families of Europe. Issue of Daniel MCKINNON and Nancy HARRISON are: Judge William 1789-1861, Daniel 1791-1864, Theaophelus 1795, John Benjamin 1796-1850, Uriah 1797-1849, Catherine 1800-1849, Josiah 1804-1837, Sarah 1806-1894 and Thomas Dillow 1809-1882 (Thomas Dillow is my line and we will continue from there to the exclusion of all other offspring.

The genealogy will continue through Robert Jackson McKinnon to the exclusion of all other offspring except some history concerning Theophalis.

5th Generation:Before doing the lineage for Robert, a brief history of Theophalis and Robert is necessary. Robert and Theophalis married sisters. Theophalis married Sarah Jane LONG and Robert married Emily Harriet LONG. Sometime before 1863 the four removed from Iowa to Shasta County Calif. They travelled by wagon train. Needless to say, their offspring were double cousins and DNA as similar as full brothers and sisters. Sometime shortly before 1863 Robert and Emily took to the wagon train again and moved to what is now Harney County Oregon. They obviously traveled on the east side of the Sierras and Cascades and through what is now called the Alvord Desert of Oregon. Robert and several other Scottish families named the town of Burns Oregon after the poet Robert Burns. Robert Sr. b 1837 in Indiana and d Apr 13 1920 In Burns Harney Oregon, son of Thomas Dillow, son of Daniel, son of Daniel and son of Lord Michael.

Michael REASOR A Patriot

Michael REASOR was born Feb 3 1760 in Winchester, Frederick, Virginia and died Jun 11 1843 in Little Mount, Spencer, Kentucky. Michael was a true patriot of the American Revolution. He was with George WASHINGTON at Yorktown for the surrender of CORNWALLIS.
Following is a transcript written about Michael and his brother Frederick. "Michael and his brother Frederick had a ship fitted and sailed to Germany where they obtained a cargo worth one half million dollars of leather goods for the revolutionary army. Upon their return journey a violent storm arose, the ship and cargo were lost at sea. The REASOR brothers and their sailors were rescued by a Scotch vessel and returned to Phila. Penn where they landed without a dollar."

Sheriff Andrew MCKINNON

Sheriff Andrew Johnson MCKINNON was born in Page County Iowa In 1866. He is the son of Robert Jackson MCKINNON Sr. and Emily Harriet LONG. He was the sheriff of Harney County Oregon from 1896 to 1900. He may well be Oregon's most famous frontier sheriff. As a child I sat at the feet of my father who recounted the many stories of the sheriff. Andrew, was called John by by his family. He was my father's favorite uncle. Most of the stories are forgotten but a few are well documented. Sheriff MCKINNON brought the killer of Pete FRENCH to Burns Oregon for trial. Pete FRENCH was the cattle baron of the entire northwest To give an idea how large Pete FRENCH'S spread was, consider he had 100 miles of fencing and cross-fencing on his spread made of two large ranches called the "Sod House" and the "P Ranch". On Christmas day 1897 Pete was gunned down by Ed OLIVER. The blood feud was apparently over Ed squatting on Pete's spread. My father also said Pete was having an affair with Ed"s wife. Apparently, Pete was not well liked since Ed was acquitted by the jury.
On Sep 18 1898 a gunfight broke out in a Burns, Oregon saloon. A stray bullet accidentally struck an innocent bystander, William MCKINNON a fifteen year old brother of Andrew. Andrew was the presiding sheriff at the death of his younger brother. An interesting aside to this event, my grandfather, Robert Jackson MCKINNON Jr. bought a saloon in Burns at a later date. It may well be the same saloon.
Following is an account of the sheriif's death as recounted in the "Reno Evening Star" dated Sep 8 1898 with a headline of "Lunatic's Long Memory---Escape Man Who Shot And Killed Man Who Apprehended Him"
Dateline "Sep 8 1898 Santa Rosa Calif. A. J. MCKINNON, former sheriff of Washington County (shoukd be Harney County) Oregon was shot and instantly killed today in Guernaville 20 miles northwest of here by an escaped lunatic from the asylum in Ukiah named JERRAUD.
MCKINNON came here several years ago after having resigned his office in Oregon and purchased a ranch not far from town. It seems that while sheriff in Oregon he was compelled to take JERRAUD to an asylum in Oregon and for that the latter cheriched resentment.
As MCKINNON and Jacob JOOS (Joost) were sitting on JOOS porch, JERRAUD came along, pulled a pistol and fired without warning.
His aim was perfect and MCKINNON toppled over dead.

JERRAUD escaped but officers are on his trail.

JERRAUD eluded his attendants at Ukiah two months ago."
