HISTORY OF A PIONEER FAMILY

Garfield Co, WA Historical Museum in Pomeroy, WA
Florence Courtney Melton was the sister of my great grandmother Sarah Jane Courtney Houk. The
family moved several times. They started in Ohio, moved to Minnesota, to Iowa, and then in 1868 they
moved to Oregon. My grand father was born in Lebanon, Oregon about 20 days after they arrived. My great
grandparents stayed in Oregon, but the rest of the family relocated near Walla Walla, Washington.
I have added links to maps of several locations mentioned in the text. Please bookmark THIS page to
keep the hit counter honest.
