I am interested in finding someone who is a descendant of the Shelton, Cyrus, Bilyeu, etc. families who traveled the Oregon Trail from St. Joseph, MO and wound up in Linn County, Scio, Oregon area in 1847. These families left MO on April 15, 1847 and arrived in Oregon City, Oregon on September 15, 1847, being the third wagon train over the Barlow Trail toll road that year. I am not certain who the wagonmasters were but I know that my gggGrandfather, Haman SHELTON was one of them. That family had three wagons pulled by oxen and driven by one of the girls in the family--Lucy Shelton.

I have names of all Shelton family members on the train and a little bit about their tales of settlement East of Scio, Oregon.

Sure hope this leads to family and friends of the family who had ties to that wagon train.
