Isaac Hill led a wagon train across the plains in 1852 and came into the Rogue River Valley in 1853 and brought with him 3 teenage daughters who were married in very early days in and near what became Ashland. They married men named Gillette, Dunn and Russell; the 3 families formed the core of early Jackson County and also the core of the web site at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hill2oregon/.

This is a work still in progress by 14 Switzler families.  We have documentation,
Photo’s, Maps, and ect. Some of the Switzler’s that
were on the Wagon Train in 1845 to OR are among the names listed in these pages.

Still looking for more OR Switzler’s to help fill in the blanks.
