Gustave Adolph Girod immigrated to the United States from Switzerland. Gustave and Sophie are responsible for starting the Girod Oregon-Line.
Gustave was a teacher by profession and taught in the schools around St. Imier, Switzerland for about 28 years.
He was the son of Francois Louis Girod and Lise Cecile Juillerat, also of Switzerland. Gustave and Sophia became parents of 16 children, surviving several of them.
He settled with Sophia in the Salem, Oregon area and took up farming.
