From brothers obit, talking about his parents and family.
In May 1874, the whole family started by team to Oregon arriving in Grande Ronde Valley in the fall. In the spring of 1876 the family came to Pine Valley being among the earliest pioneers of Pine Valley

Oregon Scout Newspaper, Union, Oregon: "April 17, 1886, Cove Cullings, April 15 1886, Mortimer Bloom returned this week from Pine Valley where he took a load of flour. He met with a severe loss, one of his best horses dying from the effects of a kick. He says every stage takes in a load of passengers, while the road to the mine is lined with the conveyences of eager aspirants for a supply of the filthy lucre."

from History of Baker County, Halfway: Mort Bloom hauled the supplies from Baker. Four-horse teams took two days to make the trip one way on the Sparta Road. When the Railroad was built to Robinette, on the Snake River, the freight could be picked up there and hauled by wagon to Halfway. Today, the Halfway Stage Trucking firm hauls the freight into the valley.
