"A people who are not proud of their forebears will never
deserve the pride of their descendants." -- John E. Gratke

While this pioneer history is designed to be read as a story, the table of contents below allows jumping to a community of immediate interest.

The reader may meet the people told about on these pages within 100 years. It will be nice to know something of their sacrifices and victories in modeling the churches after the plan endorsed by the apostles of Jesus.

We know that a Christian Church was located in Fossil, Oregon, at the corner of Main and E. Broadway in 1922. Historian Swander mentions it in his book, but we have not located any other information. Can anyone help locate the earliest records?
