d: 31 Jul 1927 Enterprise, Walla Co, OR

From the notes of
Ann (Baird) Howe
granddaughter-in-law of
Laura (Sasser) Jones-Cottingim

In 1826, Abe's grandparents,
John Henry &Nancy(Kirby) Sasser
and their children moved from
Johnson Co, NC, to Laurel Co, KY.

In 1881,
Abe moved from Kentucky to Oregon,
settling in the Enterprise, Wallawa Co, OR, area.

Leaving Kentucky for Oregon at the same time
was Abe's 1st cousin,
William Henry Sasser,
who settled in the Mitchell, Wheeler Co, OR, area.

The Oregon Move
~a differing opinion~

Sandra (Roba) Sutton
~of John Day, Grant County, Oregon~
daughter of
Harold &Susan(Sasser) Roba
granddaughter of
Elmer &Nora(Reams) Sasser
g-granddaughter of
William Henry &Mary Catherine(Jones) Sasser
The story that Henry and Mary Sasser came to Oregon
with Abraham Sasser has proved to be unfounded.
Henry and family came to Oregon in 1881.
Abraham and family came to Oregon in 1902.

I have not done any real research yet but
I think that Henry Sasser and family
came to Oregon with a Weaver cousin.
