Donald Eugene "Don" Wilson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 19, 1922, USA
Death: Aug. 26, 2009
Jackson County
Oregon, USA

Don's maternal grandfather was Lloyd Spires, son of Samuel Spires and Sarah Graves Fosdick Ritchie Spires. Sarah was a survivor of the Donner Party.

In 1884, grandfather Lloyd disposed of his property in California and came to Oregon, settling in Coos County. He purchased a preemption homestead of 320 acres of which only five acres had been cleared. He cleared an additional 20 acres and put the entire cleared acreage under cultivation.

Lloyd also engaged in raising stock. He lived on the farm until his death. The property is now owned by his two granddaughters and is recognized as a "Century Ranch".

Don wished his ashes to be scattered on this ranch as he loved it.
