The Oregon Trail
Thank You for your note. Sounds like you had fun at the end of the trail! At one point I thought it would be great to bike the Oregon Trail – but I think hubby and I are too old – and we still have a way to go before we retire. Regarding “Who Do You Think You Are” - I hadn’t seen the episode with Kelsey Grammer – but did so on your recommendation. I wasn’t disappointed – it brought tears to my eyes. My 3rd Great Grandfather, John B. Morris 1807-1852, died along the trail of cholera. Easter Blessings to You and your family.

RE: Mary L. Crow Manning.
Hi Lynn,
Like you, I only know of one child born in 1885. Mary didn't die until 1888 so it is possible she had another child after 1885. If there was another child perhaps Mary and the child died in childbirth? Also on the 1890 census there is no child listed that would be old enough to have come from Mary and raised by ELizabeth. I checked the census for Mary's parents and there is a child Maude born to them in Jan. 1884, but I doubt this would have been Mary's child. So as of now, the mystery remains. Thanks for writing and good luck in your research.

Hello – thank you for the kind words. Although not an Oregonian by birth or residence :( , I fell in love with the state when I was 5 years old, and on vacation with my parents. Imagine my surprise over half a century later when I found my biological roots (I’m an adoptee) run deep in Oregon. At least 12 Oregon Trail travelers are my ancestors. It is incredible what they all lived through. I’ve become involved with the Sons and Daughters of Oregon Pioneers and the Oregon-California Trails Association. How exciting for you to have a genealogical connection to the Younger brothers! Searching out one’s ancestry can certainly make history up close and personal. Congratulations on your good work as a volunteer. Bless you.

Hello to you cousin!
Happy to make your acquaintance. Jacob Howdersheldt or Howdershell, was my 3rd great grandfather. He was the father to those rascally Younger brothers. My dad can remember being at his grandfathers house here in Coweta OK and being shown where the brothers stayed when they came to visit and the corn field they came through to get to the house without being seen. Would be happy to share information. My e-mail is CherryK1@cox.net and my tree is Creek Wilson and associated families on Ancestry.com. I wish I was better at this Genealogy stuff but I just started, slowly about ten years ago with my Dad, Ellis Andrew Creek. I inherited his research when he passed in 2009 and I am sorry to say I have not gone through it all.

The Youngers
Most of the Younger children were buried at Malheur City Cemetery.

The town is burned but not the cemetery as I understood from my Granny who was son of Sarah (Younger) Whitworth.

Since you said Hugh died in 1957, chance is to check his death certificate at the State Archives.

Hugh Younger
I guess without knowing where Hugh is buried and that he might be my memorial at Camp Watson, you probably shouldn't create a memorial.

FAG - Hugh Felix Younger
If you look at the fact that Hugh was in the 1870 census, age 1, but not in the 1880 census and in the 1900 census it says that Nancy had 5 children but 4 living, I would bet that Hugh was the child who had died and that is what I am basing this memorial on.

If the mortuary record that you found had a Hugh Younger dying in 1890 that would make him 20-21 years old. Do you have a copy of the mortuary record that you could send me?

Did you see the photo of Nero Younger's grave that was recently posted on Find A Grave?
