Resident of Oregon City
; More than Sixty Years
It was just 60 years ago next
Monday that George P. Litchfield,
bailiff of the Marlon county cir
cuit court, celebrated his first New
i'ear's day In Oregon.
Mr. Litchfield had Just arrived
at Grande Konde, coming direct
from Connecticut. He had been
teaching school In Massachusetts
and New Jersey but iu the fall of
1862, when 22 years of age, de
elded to cast his fortunes In the
far distant Btate of Oregon.
In 1S73 Mr. Litchfield was ap
pointed Indian agent at Crando
Ronde and served four years. In
187 he came to Salem and en
gaged In the grocery, boot and
jhoe business on the corner of
State and Liberty streets, now oc
cupled by the Gardner & Keene
In 1889 Mr. Litchfield was ap
pointed special Indian agent by
President Harrison, having the
Honor of being the first agent to
erve In a special capacity ever ap
pointed. In his capacity of special agent,
he allotted 33,000 acres to the
Sioux Indians in northwestern
Nebraska, and also served as pay
master tor the several Indian res
rvatlons. For the past 14 years, Mr.
Litchfield has Berved the Marion
county circuit court as bailiff. He
was born in 1840 and attributes
his wonderful health to the fact
that he has always refrained from
alcoholic drinks of every kind and
that the one chew of tobacco tak
en when young was enough to last
him the remainder of his life.
