Abstract:

"When this work was begun by my brother [Thomas S. Wilkes] and me, the central idea was to commit to permanent record the lives and achievement of our grandparents Peyton and Anna Wilkes ... [and] the folk lore of the pioneer times"--Introduction.

Peyton Wilkes was born in Grayson County, Virginia in February 1791. It is thought that his parents came from Scotland or England. Peyton was orphaned or left motherless at an early age and was "bound out" to learn the trade of a tanner. He married Anna Dallas in Grayson County on March 18, 1815, her 18th birthday. They were married until her death on March 15, 1888, just 3 day short of 73 years. Sons, Henry, William G., and Archibald G. were born in Virginia. Peyton and Anna moved to Kentucky where sons, Marmaduke and Columbus, and daughter, Florentine were born. In Indiana, sons Jabez and George were born. After living in Missouri, the family left for Oregon in spring of 1845, and arrived in Oregon City on Christmas Day, 1845. Includes narratives of Oregon pioneers.
