I'm working on Civil War Vets buried in Polk Co., Oregon. The obit of one Jacob H. Stine, Civil War Vet from PA tells that he was a newspaperman who made a career of starting newspapers - one of these was the Weiser City Ledger, Weiser, Idaho.
Can anyone tell me when this would have been? Jacob H. Stine apparently moved around and missed census. From Idaho he moved to Heppner, OR, then Grant's Pass, OR, Lebanon, OR and finally to Independence, OR where he was killed in 1891.
