Austin Daniels' arrival in Oregon 1851

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

Austin Daniels was born in Campbell County, Virginia, in 1812 and followed the Oregon Trail to Benton County, Oregon, arriving in August of 1851. We learn from the pioneer records that he married Mary E. on January 7, 1836/7 in Morgan County, Missouri. From there, the journey was about 1,930 miles. Austin's wife died at home in Albany, Oregon, about December 20, 1870.
