Birth: Jul. 5, 1811
Henry County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Apr. 22, 1888
Douglas County
Oregon, USA

At sixteen years of age, Jesse Applegate went to work for the Missouri Surveyor General's Office. In 1831, he married Cynthia Parker and moved to Oregon in 1843. He first settled in Polk County and did work for the Territorial Government and was appointed as the first Surveyor General in 1844. Jesse was appointed Captain of the third successful road exploration party in 1846, which led to the opening of the Scott-Applegate trail for wagon trains to enter Southern Oregon from the Oregon Trail. In 1866, Jesse had been living in Yoncalla, Oregon on his donation land claim, when he lost all of his holdings because of indebtedness. He left Oregon in 1872 and went to work in California. He made enough money to return to Yoncalla, where he spent the rest of his days raising grapes in the first established vineyard in Douglas County. Jesse died in 1888 in Yoncalla Oregon. (bio by: RB)
