Born in New York in 1820, Oscar Eaton spent the last thirty years of his life in Oswego, where he farmed in the Hazelia area. As this photo clearly shows, he lived a long life and experienced much. In his early forties, with a family to support, he enlisted in Michigan in the Union army and spent three years in military service. Arriving in Oregon in 1871, he bought a farm and moved to Hazelia in 1880. In 1888 Eaton was one of the founders of the Congregational Church of Oswego, and he also served as chaplain for the Oregon State Grange. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
