Despite not posting often, I've been reading many of your blogs. What a varied, different lot you are. Birds, politics, flowers and gardens to inspire envy, visits to the ER, something for everyone. Thanks to all for the entertainment and enlightenment.
So here's mine, of interest to damn near none, except perhaps the youngest who is doing a paper on Lane County pioneer history.
Charnelton Mulligan 1826-1899. My Great-great-grandfather. Came to the Oregon Territory in 1847, partnered with Eugene Skinner to each donate 40 acres for the founding of the city of Eugene Oregon. Eugene sounds better than Charnelton, hence the city name. The main drag through downtown is Charnelton St, and there is a park with his name.
My eldest through him is a 5th gen Oregonion.
As I said, of interest to few.
My grandkid did mention ze is happy zer doesn't have to bring potential boyfriends home to meet him.
