New Jory Family Photo Found

This new acquisition is the first we’ve seen of the storied Jory Brothers who settled about six miles south of Salem.  While the Willamette Heritage Center has a thick biography file documenting the Jory Family’s history, we have few materials related specifically to the family.  We were thrilled when we were contacted by the folks down at the Benton County Elections and County Clerks Offices about the photograph.

    Isn’t it the same image as the one here?

    It does appear to be the same one listed there (http://www.historicoregoncity.org/end-of-the-oregon-trail-history/89-pioneer-families/74-jory) with some great biographical information. The image we were given appears to be a fairly old print, I’d be interested to know if there are others out there. Thank you for the link.

    You’ve also put together a great bit of history: http://capitaltaps.blogspot.com/2011/05/taste-dirt-learn-about-jory-soil.html

    Glad you like the piece on Jory soil!

    Readers of drinking age may be interested in the event on August 2nd at Willamette Valley Vineyards. A Jory family member will talk family history, a geologist will talk soil, and wine samples will talk terroir.

    It’s great for the very few Jory’s that we are in Louisiana to see this. Awesome!
