William Henry Sasser
Mary Catherine (Jones) Sasser
William's & Mary's g-granddaughter-in-law,
Ann (Baird) Howe
In 1826, William's grandparents,
John Henry &Nancy(Kirby) Sasser
and their children moved from
Johnson Co, NC, to Laurel Co, KY.
William, Mary Catherine, and their 3 children
moved from Kentucky to Oregon, settling
in Mitchell, of
Wheeler County, OR.
Their next 5 children were born in Oregon.
Leaving Kentucky for Oregon at the same time
was William's 1st cousin,
Abraham Henry "Abe" Sasser,
who settled in the Enterprise, Wallowa Co, OR, area.

Elmer &Nora(Reams) 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.
