George & Sarah Wills arrived in Mahaska, Iowa about 1840.
George Jacob Wills and Sarah Jane Moore Wills traveled the Oregon Trail
in 1846 from Mahaska, Iowa to the Portland, OR area. George was the
Wagon Master of the Osklaoosa Company. They arrived at waht was to
become the town of Willsburg in 1847.
George and his son Jacob set up the first sawmill in the Pacific
Northwest and produced the first dressed lumber in the area. Most of
their lumber was shipped down the Columbia by schooner to San Francisco
where it went up the Sacramento River to Sutter's Fort. It was then
off-loaded to ox teams and sent out to Coloma, site of the gold
discovery that began the 1949 Gold Rush to California.
The Wills family also lived for a short time in Oysterville, Washington
where they were in the Oyster business.
Any information on any of these folks greatly appreciated. Thanks.
