Jesse Walton LOONEY

16 Dec 1801 - 25 Mar 1896

ID Number: I102241

  • RESIDENCE: Knox Co. KY and Jackson Co. AL and Warren Co. IL and Looney Butte, Marion County, Oregon Territory
  • BIRTH: 16 Dec 1801, Knoxville, Knox Co. Kentucky
  • DEATH: 25 Mar 1896, Jefferson City, Marion Co. Oregon
  • BURIAL: Looney Cemetery, Jefferson, Oregon
  • RESOURCES: See: notes [S3703]
Father: John LOONEY
Mother: Mary Polly GARRISON


Family 1 : Ruby C. BOND
  1.  Mary Ellen LOONEY

Notes


Jesse was reared to manhood on a plantation in Knoxville, Tennassee. When a young man he went to Alabama, and for several years therafter he traveled about the states in the middle west, spending some time in Illinois, Wisconsin and Missiouri. Impelled through an intense hatred of the condition of slavery to seek a home in a different section of the country. In 1843 he went to St. Joseph, Missiouri, where he outfitted for the trip. He bought four wagons and a large number oxen, planning on having three to five yoke per wagon, twenty head of fine cows, five mares, and a great quantity of fruit seeds.


The journey was safely made, the fall finding them at Whitman's Station, and in the spring of 1844 he came by water on a Hudson Bay boat to Oregon City, after which he settled three miles south of Salem. He erected a small log cabin, but remained there for only a short time. He settled at what is now known as Looney Butte. Jesse was a member of the first provisional government, and was instrumental in many progressive movements, taking an active interest in the welfare of his adopted state. He also had the distiction of being the first settler in the Santiam valley, the first school house was built on his property.


A copy of the original letter written by Jesse Looney, October 1843, to his brother-in-law, John C. Bond. Captain Barnett was the head of the train. This letter was carried eastward in the fall of 1843 by the Explorer John C. Freemont to Morrisville area of Missiouri. Gilbert Looney, Jefferson, Oregon, has the original copy.


Waiilatpu, Oregon Ter.
Oct. 27, 1843


Dear Sir:
I embrace the opportunity of writing to you from this far western country, afforded me by the return of Lieut. Freemont to the states this winter. He thinks that he will be at Independence Mo. by January next, which will be in time for those intending coming next season to this country to get some information about the necessary preperations to be made for the journey.
It is a long tiresome trip from the states to this country, but the company of emigrants came through safely this season - to the number of one thousand persons, with something over 100 wagons, to this place, which is 250 miles east of the Willamette Valley, and with the exception of myself and a few others, they have gone down, intending to go through this winter if possible. About half of them have traded off their stock at Walla Walla, 25 miles below here and are going by water; the balance went on by land to the Methodist Mission, 175 miles below this, intending to take the water there. I have stopped here in the Walla Walla Valley to spend the winter in order to save my stock. This is a fine valley of land, excellent water, good climate, and the finest of pine timber on the surrounding mountains; and above all, a first rate range for stock both winter and summer. The Indians are friendly and have plenty of grain and potatoes, and a good many hogs and cattle.


The Missionaries at this time and the other Missions have raised fine crops of wheat, corn, potatoes, ect., so that provisions can be procured here upon as good or better terms than in the lower settlements at present. Cattle are valuable here, especially American cattle. Things induced me to stop here for the winter, save my stock and take them down in the spring.


In preparing for the journey across the mountains, you cannot be too particular in the choice of a wagon--it should be strong in every part and yet should not be very heavy. The large size, two horse Yankee wagons are the most suitable wagons I have seen for this trip. You should have nothing but your clothing, bedding and provisions--flour and bacon. Goods are cheaper here than in the states. Put in about as much loading as one yoke of cattle can draw handly, and then put on three good yoke of cattle and take an extra yoke for a change in case of lameness or sore necks, and you can come without any difficulty.


The road is good, much better than we expected, but is long. Bring all the loose cattle you can get, especially milch cows and heifers. Do not attempt to bring calves - they will not come through and by losing them you will be in danger of losing their mothers. I cannot urge you too strongly to be sure of plenty of provisions - do not depend on the game, you may have some, and you may not; it is uncertain.


We were about five months on the road to this place, and I had plenty of flour, ect., to do me, but most of the company were out long before they got here, and there is little or nothing in the way of provisions to be had at the forts on the way. I would advise you to lay in plenty for at least five months, for if you get out on the way, you will have trouble to get any until you get here.


I would also advise you to start as soon as the grass will admit of. We might of started a month sooner than we did, and then we would have been here in time to have gone through with our cattle this winter. We left Independence the 22nd of May and we were just about a month too late.


Myself and family were all sick when we left and continued so until we left Blue River and the rains and mud, but when we struck the high land along the Platte we began to feel better than it has for many years, and so far as I have seen this country, I think is very healthful.
There was some sickness on the road, though no more than might have been expected in so large a company. There were five or six deaths on the road, some by sickness and some by accident, and there were some eight or ten births on the road. There was little or no sickness when we got here.


Upon the whole we fared better than we expected. We found water every night but one, though it was sometimes not very good; and we always found something to make a fire, but not always good wood. We had no interuption from the Indians, unless, indeed they might have stolen a horse now and then to get a little something for bringing him in. Our greatest difficulty was in crossing rivers, but we got over them all safely, except one man drowned, and he did not cross with the main company and gotten behind.


Mrs. Looney says prepare yourselves with good strong clothing for the road or the wild sage will trip you. This shrub is very plentiful and was hard on our teams, especially those that went before, but it will not be so bad on those that come next year, for we left a plain well beaten road all the way.
I will have a better opportunity of giving you an account of this country next spring, and want you to write the first chance. No more, but remain your brother until death.


Jesse Looney
