Birth: Mar. 4, 1858
Death: Dec. 2, 1956
Multnomah County
Oregon, USA

The first Stake in the Northwestern States Mission, the Union Stake (now called LaGrand Oregon Stake), was created June 9, 1901. Also at that time in the city of Portland and the surrounding area, a few members of the church were organized into a branch under the leadership of Jens Christian Westergaard, an early convert from Denmark. It took 37 years for the church to grow large enough to create a second Stake in Oregon. Portland Stake was organized June 26, 1938 with Monte L. Bean as President. Twelve years later the third Stake (Nyssa Oregon) was formed. After 75 years, there were 10 stakes in Oregon. In the last 25 years an additional 25 stakes have been created, for a total of 35, with several more in the planning stages.
