>From one Oregonian to another. While one of my Powell ancestors was in MA in
1658 (unproven by me) another one of my Powell ancestors was born in MA in
1792 and ended up in the Willamette Valley in Oregon in 1851. That is over
150 years ago and there were settlers out here for 15 or 20 years before
that. Still young in Comparison to MA but well over the 100 years you give
OR credit for.
