    p. 1012
    Solomon Kimsey Crowley, of Monmouth, Polk county, is one of Oregon's
    pioneers of 1852. He was born in northwest Missouri, Ray county, November 1,
    1833. He is of Scotch-Irish ancestry, who came to America previous to the
    Revolution, and were participants in the whole of the struggle for
    independence. His father, John Crowley, was born in the State of Tennessee on
    September 27, 1810. He married Miss Nancy Jane Curtis, a native of Missouri,
    and a daughter of Elijah Curtis, whose people were early settlers of Tennessee.
    They had three children, of whom Mr Corwley was the eldest, and he and a
    sister are the only living ones. Our subject resided in Missouri until his
    nineteenth year, and in 1852 crossed the plains to Oregon. His father followed
    in 1864, and died in Polk County, August 31, 1880; Mr Crowley's mother had died
    when he was a child.
    He had read Clark's History of the North Pacific coast, in 1843, and later
    he got a chance to drive a team for a family, but his father refused to permit
    him to go. He said: "When I am of age I will go," and then his father
    consented. He then came and worked his way, but had his own mule. On the
    journey they had many narrow escapes, but finally reached their destination.
    At Ash Hollow there were many cases of smallpox and cholera, and the deaths
    were so frequent that the way was blocked with emigrant trains burying the
    dead, and if our subject could have been frightened he would have turned back.
    It was an appalling time; he saw strong men who had lost all their families,
    stand and wring their hands in agony, but he came through safely.
    They crossed the Missouri river on the 10th of May, and arrived at the
    Dalles on the 16th of August. They had stopped nine days at one place with a
    sick child, and they rested every Sunday; not for religious reasons, but
    because they believed it best for them. While at Snake river, the cholera
    broke out in a little company of ten wagons, and there were three deaths in
    some five hours. The whole camp was panic-stricken. Mr Crowley never missed a
    meal of victuals on the whole journey, and he was the only one of the company
    but what was, more or less, with mountain fever, or something else. They came
    down the Columbia river in a large canoe, and arrived a Portland on August 19.
    He came up the Willamette in a boat, and stopped with his uncle, Benjamin
    Munkres, two and one-half miles east of Salem, and a few days later he came on
    to Polk county, to see the wife of his great uncle, Mrs James M Fulkerson.
    On the way he fell in with a man who was engaged in packing to the maines,
    and Mr Crowley engaged to pack with him to California. They went in this way,
    with pack animals, to Siskiyou county, California, and he packed and mined
    until 1855. He did not make money very fast, but came from there with about
    $1,000. In 1855, he retired to the Willamette Valley and was marrie don July
    25 to Miss Hannah Rebecca Fulkerson, the daughter of James M Fulkerson, who had
    come to Oregon in 1847. After the marriage they settled in the foothills near
    Dallas, on a transferred claim of 320 acres of land. He resided on it a year,
    got a title, and sold it in timber lots, and came near to Pleasant Hill;
    purchased 160 acres, built on it, and resided there until 1876, purchasing in
    this time 840 acres adjoining.
    He then went with his family to the Sandwich islands, on an excursion.
    After his return he purchased teh Goodwin place of 170 acres, near Oak Grove,
    and there he resided until 1890, when he purchased a home in Monmouth, where he
    now resides. He still owns his Oak Grove and Pleasant Hill property. He and
    his good wife have had nine children, and have raised them all, and all are
    yet living.
    They are as follows: Mary V, is Mrs W Faulk, and they reside at Oak Grove; J M
    is a prominent physician of Monmouth; J F resides in Seattle; Nancy Jane is
    the wife of Milton Taylor, and resides near Crowley Station; S H resides near
    Dixey Manson, near Crowley Station; Ada B, Effa I, and Ora P are at home. Mr
    and Mrs Crowley gave to each one of their nine children, ninety-one acres.
    Crowley Station was named for them.
    Mr Crowley has never forgotten his early mining days, and still spends some
    time prospecting in California. He is in politics a Democrat, but is very
    independent in his ideas. He and his wife are members of the Baptist Church,
    and he has been a Deacon for many years. He is a thoroughly reliable man, and
    is very highly esteemed. His career, marked as it has been by many of the
    characteristic events of the pioneer west, and by his integrity and enterprise,
    will leave a conspicuous and lasting impression upon the community.
