RE: Merry Christmas from a Younger Cousin
Hello Cousin,

I'm the one that should be thanking you. You have been at this much longer than myself. I live out here in Yamhill County close to where Sydney and George are buried and my husbands family is from Benton County as far back as 1870. I know that Nero was out there with his family around that time. Kind of cool that we are both born and raised Oregonians. I will send you a private message with all my information and we can swap family information after the holidays.

So nice to hear from you and I wish you and yours a very Marry Christmas!!!!

James McMahan
Hi there. I see you are a descendent of James McMahan. I was wondering what your line from him is? I would like to see if I have you in my family tree for him. James is my 3rd great grand uncle. My paternal grandmother was Nellie Mae [McMahan] Leggett so that is where my connection comes in with James.

RE: Younger Kin
Hi Lynn, still researching Creek? I was thumbing through my gen file and just wanted to touch base with you. We are going to a Wilson reunion this weekend near Eufaula lake. Wilson is my mothers maiden name. I am hoping to gather a lot of new information from that side. Let me know what you have been doing. Did I share younger information? Do you have a tree on line? Let me know if you need any pictures from my area. Talk soon. Hope you have a great summers!

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.

Boones in Oregon
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 and my tree is Creek Wilson and associated families on 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.
