In addition to three different trail diaries by our family of their trip to Oregon via the Oregon Trail, we have recently been adding the full text of Fifty Years in Oregon, a book by T.T. Geer, a former Governor of Oregon, on the early history of Oregon with a focus on politics.

Eulogy for Heman Johnson Geer

In October, 1848, Mr. Geer married Miss Cynthia A. Eoff, a native of Ohio, and to them were born two children; Theodore T. Geer, the present governor of the state; and Theodosia C., wife of Joseph Janes, warden of the state penitentiary.

...
In October 1867, Mr. Geer married a second time.
...
Mrs. Geer was called from her home and family on February 5, 1901, by the relentless hand of death. Mr. Geer is a man that always manifests a proper interest in the affairs of government. In 1877 he was nominated for the state legislature but owing to the fact that the county was strongly Democratic, he was defeated by his opponent, C. M. Jameson. Since 1862 Mr. Geer has been a Mason and he is a charger member of the I.O.O.F. Lodge of Cove. For three terms he has done excellent service on the school board at the request of his fellows.
It is of note, by way of reminiscence, that Mr. Geer did excellent scout service in 1848 under Captain Scott, in the Modoc and Klamath Indian war . The Indians made a raid into the Willamette valley for horses and cattle and two companies of whites were raised quickly to pursue them, and they were successful in capturing the camps of the Indians with all of the stock, but the savages themselves escaped. Mr. Geer has had a long and eventful career in this western region and is a man of great erudition and practical knowledge, and his experience has been of untold benefit to the orchardists and horticulturists of this valley, while his life of uprightness has always been a bright example to all.
...
The name of Geer is so well known in our state that the following account of the father of T. T. Geer of the Waldo hills will be of interest to all.

Fifty Years In Oregon holds the first two chapters of the book published by T.T. Geer, a past governor of Oregon.
