The Father of Oregon
Born in Canada, Dr. John McLoughlin, lived and worked in Oregon Territory, Doctor John
retired to Oregon City where he was their first Mayor.
Built in 1854, his house has been named a national treasure, and one can still tour it today. In time the Legislature named him the Father of Oregon.
He had eight children living in Oregon City. Does anyone know where their descendents are?
John Astor was born in Germany, but made his fortune trading and selling furs in the old North West first,
then in Oregon Territory. He built Fort Vancouver and founded the town of Vancouver.
