"It was Jan. 6, 1862, when Robert B. Hargadine, accompanied by a man named Pease, arrived in the valley of Bear Creek and settled on land now occupied by the Southern Pacific Railroad yards. On Jan. 11, Abel D. Helman, Eber Emery and his uncle, J. B. Emery, James Cardwell and A. M. Rogers joined the pioneers and they had the nucleus of a town."
From the article "A Brief History of Ashland":

"Shortly after the Helman sisters made the quilt for their brother Able and his wife Martha, Abel Helman made plans to go out west. In 1852, Abel Helman set out for California, lured by the gold rush, with Eber Emery and Eber’s uncle, Jacob Emery. The three eventually ended up in Oregon where they built a sawmill called Emery’s Mill. The town of Ashland, Oregon, was formed around the mill, getting its name from Ashland County where the three men were from or had lived near. Helman was from Wooster and had family in Ashland County. The Emery family was from the Rowsburg area."
