Program:  Leta Lovelace Neiderheiser  ~ A Portrayal of Mrs. Jesse Applegate

A history of Oregon without Jesse Applegate would be like Exodus without Moses. Like Moses, Jesse led pioneers through the wilderness across the Oregon Trail in 1843. Like Moses, he was a law-giver, and like Moses, when proper provocation occurred, he sometimes threw down the tablets. Jesse Applegate, A Dialogue with Destiny gives a comprehensive historical perspective to the life of this interesting, complicated man who played a major role in the formation of Oregon. Throughout his amazing life, he led the ‘cow column’ of ’43 west to Oregon, wrote the constitution of ’45, played a major role in the solving of the Cayuse War, led the expedition to find a new southern route in’46, and fought to keep Oregon free of slavery. But perhaps even more important was the moral compass he provided for the emerging Oregon society. Through his letters to editors of newspapers and to prominent political figures, he provided comment, council, criticism, and loyal opposition to those in power. His opinions were sought by local, state and federal leaders, as well as the historians of the day.

PIONEER COOKBOOK

In an effort to recognize and honor our pioneer ancestors, the board of SDOP would like to invite all of our members to submit old family recipes for publication in our new “Pioneer Cookbook”.

This is a chance to see a cookbook come to life where all the best of the pioneer recipes can be found all in one place.  We hope that all of our members will help us create a very special book.

We welcome all recipes.  If you have a name, date or perhaps a small anecdote to add to the recipes, that would make the book all the more memorable.  Please send recipes to:
