Of Early Diaries
Sixteen handwritten volumes of
the diaries of Moses Aaron Wil
liams, a Presbyterian minister who
founded the first church in Jack
sonville, Oregon, have been given
to the University library by Mrs.
A. F. Sandlin of San Bernardino,
Leaving New York in 1852, Wil
liams reached southern Oregon in
1856. At that time, Jacksonville
was the metropolis and mining cen
ter of southern Oregon.
The diaries cover the period be
tween 1852 and 1897, the year in
Which Williams died. They give a
history of the early churches in
Oregon, with emphasis on the Pres
byterian, and describe Pioneer life
and places which have since faded
from the maps.
The volumes are a record of the
day-by-day life of Williams, includ
ing all of he marriages, burials, and
baptisms he performed. One vol
ume contains the topics of all the
sermons he preached up to 1849.
Williams’ account records his
period of acting as a circuit rider
between Jacksonville and Salem
two years spent in Valpariso, Chile,
and a trip up the Columbia river as
far as Wallula in 1870. During the
latter trip, there was a circus train
complete with lions aboard the
