I am a fifth generation Oregonian and a genealogy nut. I volunteer part time at the Union County museum in Union, OR. I am employed as a retired person who dreams about the past. The Younger brothers outlaws are my first cousins, four generations removed.|

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.
|Cherry||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!

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.
|Anna 823||RE: Mary L. Crow Manning.|
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.
|Cherry||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.

|Cemetery Guy||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.

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.

Are you going to make a memorial for him?

Great find, Lynn!!!! Very interesting story. Any idea where he might be buried - Heppner, maybe, or Baker City?
