On to Oregon: The Diaries of Mary Walker and Myra Eells

By Clifford Merrill Drury; Mary Richardson Walker et al. | Go to book overview

Persons and Places Mentioned in the Text
Since Mary Walker mentioned so many people in her diary covering her ten years' residence in the upper Columbia River country, 1838-48, a brief identification of each is here given. This identification is needed especially when we meet with the names of the natives. The following list does not include the names of colleagues of the Walkers in the Oregon Mission of the American Board or of the independent missionaries who migrated to Oregon in 1839 and 1840. These have been sufficiently identified in volume 1 of this work and in the author's The Diaries of Spalding and Smith. The names of the Walker and Eells children, with their birthdays, will be given. A few names, which have been identified in the text or in footnotes, will not be listed.
I. WHITE PEOPLE, MIXED BREEDS, AND HAWAIIANS
ABERNATHY, GEORGE. Member of the Methodist Mission in Oregon, arriving on the "Lausanne" in 1840. Was elected the first governor of the Provisional Government of Oregon in 1845.
ADAMS. Mountain man who worked for Walker for a short time during the summer of 1843. His native wife was the mother of Peter Skeene Ogden's eldest son.
ARMSTRONG, DR. WILLIAM J. Presbyterian minister; secretary of the American Board. It was he who first suggested that Elkanah call on Mary Richardson. He lost his life in a shipwreck on November 27, 1846, while en route from Boston to New York.
BINGHAM, REV. HIRAM. Founder of the Sandwich Islands Mission and pastor of the Honolulu church for natives.
BLACK, SAMUEL. Chief Factor of the Hudson's Bay Company in charge of Fort Kamloop, junction of the Fraser and Thompson rivers. Killed by natives in February, 1841.
BRIDGER, JAMES. Famous mountain man who met the missionaries at the Rendezvous. Had a native wife and a daughter, Mary Ann, who was placed in the Whitman home in the summer of 1841.
CAMPBELL. Worked for Walker in the summer of 1843, during which time he had much trouble with his native wives.
