And Get Write-Up
Although she is not the oldest pio­
neer in Lmn county, who has been
interviewed during the last week
anent the appearance here of "The
Covered Wagon", Mrs. Rebecca
(Aunt Becky) Morris, of Scio, has
the distinction of being the earliest
settler in Linn countv. Mr». Mor-
tia belongs to that sturdy family of
pioneers, the Crabtree», who made
their way west from Missouri in
1845 and started the first settlement
in the Forks of the Santiam.
The Crabtrees were pioneers be­
fore pioneering in Oregon, Mrs.
Morri»* parents, John J. and Malin-
da Crabtree, 'ived in Lre euuntv,
Virginia, where they were married
in 1825 and brought five children
into the world. Then in the 30’s
they moved to Missouri, where five
more children were born. And af­
ter arriving In Oregon five more
were added to the flock.
The women of today who think
they have hard work to du might
well learn something from the ex­
perience of this woman. The task
of bringing fifteen children Into the
world ami seeing to their bringing
up is no light affair. Think of the
anxieties of this woman a» the long
tram of which their wagons were a
part, trrked aero«» the plains,
through dangerous country about
which they knew nothing except re­
ports. But with a strung heart
»nd with affectionate care, »he shoul­
dered her burdens and brought her
flock »afclv through. The women
of thus» days were the backbone of
the west's present civilization.
Mrs. Morris was three years old
when her parents packed their prai­
rie »chooners at Independence. Jack-
son County. Mo., anff started west
in April 1845
The long, weary
journey over the famous Oregon
trail was made with the usual vari­
ations of joys and sorrows, hard­
ships and pleasures, altough the trip
was peaceful as far as Indians were
