Biography of William Barclay
Benton County, Oregon Biographies





WILLIAM BARCLAY-This venerable gentleman and pioneer to Oregon of 1850 was born in St. Louis county, Missouri, September 19, 1805, and with the exception of two years lived in his native State until the spring of 1850, when he, with his wife and seven children, started to cross the plains. On arriving at the Platt river he suffered the loss of his wife, when he was left in charge of their seven children, the eldest of whom was 53 years and the youngest three months 'old. After a long and weary journey they arrived in Yamhill county, where Mr. Barclay passed the first winter. In the spring of 1851 he came to Benton county and located his donation claim where he now lives and has spent the past thirty-five years.
