Earliest Combs of Oregon County

In 1842 the Oregon Territory extended from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean and from Canada to northern California. The people named in this census, however, were living in the Willamette Valley and at Wailatpu near present day Walla Walla, Washington. Most were in the area called French Prairie, north of present-day Salem, Oregon. They were an eclectic mix of retired Hudson's Bay employees, American Mountain Men, Methodist Ministers, and Catholic priests.
