This article is first in a series of articles about Letitia Carson and her life in Douglas County, Oregon. These articles are being published in whole or in part by the Genealogical Society of Douglas County, Inc. (DCGS) in their quarterly publication Douglas County Pioneer, and by the Douglas County Historical Society (DCHS) in their quarterly publication The Umpqua Trapper.
The principal purposes of these articles are to: 1) inform people and make them aware of Letitia Carson's place in Oregon history and in US history; and 2) hopefully locate people who may have the interest, time, and ability to aid in the research of Letitia's life -- and the lives of her children and their father -- from 1800 to 1922.
