Oregon Pioneer Biographies
Surnames Beginning with Letters S - Z

Below is a collection of Oregon pioneer biographies...

Most biographies are from a lovely 2-volume set called
"Portrait and Biographical Record of the Willamette Valley"
published by The Chapman Publishing Company in 1903.
I have placed the complete index for this book on this webpage.
(copies are available for purchase from the folks at The Higginson Book Company)

Some have been donated by generous visitors.

I've used my good old-fashioned "hunt-and-peck" typing method
to place the biographies here for your enjoyment.
