I am trying to find out if the Lane Co. Historical Society's "Lane County Historian" published articles in its periodicals are available electronically.
In particular, I am looking for
a reproducible copy of the article published Spring 1979 by Mary Rodman entitled "The 1851 Trail Diary of James Woods Gay & The Sunset Trail-Reminiscences of Martha Gay Masterson". In particular, I am also trying to run down originals of the family pics.
Also, then editor, Lois Barton, wrote a book, "One Woman's West"--Recollections of the Oregon Trail and Settling the Northwest Country" by Martha Gay Masterson 1838-1916, published 1986 by Spencer Butte Press, Eugene, OR.
(I am also looking for a living descendant of Arthur J. Sperling who might still have family pictures of the James Gay family or those of his parents, Martin Baker Gay--one family pic was used by Lois Barton of the entire family.).
Thank you to all of those who have been so helpful to date. I am trying to see what might be reprocible for our family's history (non-commercial) and I wish to give credit to those responsible.
