Pioneer Park, in which my early home is located, was dedicated by me at the time of founding of town (now city) of Puyallup, in 1879, to perpetuate the memory of the early pioneers who made the settlement of the Oregon country possible. Later immigrants to the Oregon country have long felt some action should be taken to honor these real pioneers who opened the way with the first wagon train (1843) to cross the continent and who first founded American institutions on the Pacific coast and made Oregon an American territory instead of remaining a British colony.
