YC-PEDIA Oregon Trail “Applegate Descendants”.

This is an historical marker, noting The Freemont Trail.  The two men at the site, are my great grandfather Capt. Oliver C. Applegate, and his son LeRoy G. Applegate, my grandfather.  Both descendants of Lindsay Applegate, one of the original founders of the Applegate Trail.  Three Applegate brothers found a safer route to the Willamette Valley in Oregon, through northern CA.
