Biographical Sketch of John J. Peebler

JOHN J. PEEBLER. – Mr. Peebler was born in Iowa in 1837, and while but a boy of six years met the irreparable loss of his parents, who died within twenty-four hours of each other. With an uncle, David Peebler, he crossed the plains in 1853, and made his home at Harrisburg, in Linn county, Oregon. During the Indian disturbances of 1855, he went to Umpqua valley and served with the volunteers on Rogue river. He continued his journeys to Yreka, where he mined for eighteen months, returning thereafter to the Umpqua valley.

In 1859 he was married to Miss Antoinette Grumble, and in 1862 went to the Salem river gold mines, thence to the Grande Ronde valley, and then back to the Umpqua. Being very much pleased with the Blue Mountain country, he determined to bring thither his family and make the Grande Ronde his home. He located at Ladd’s CaƱon, Union county, Oregon, where he still resides, owning five hundred and sixty acres of fine land, which is stocked with sheep, cattle and horses. Three married children are living near them; and three unmarried are at home.
