An Applegate Family Tree

 The Applegate family joined a wagon train to the Pacific Northwest in the “Great Migration of 1843.” Lindsey Applegate, who had participated in the Black Hawk War in Illinois in the early 1830s, joined an anti-Indian vigilante group. His nephew Albert was born immediately after the family arrived on the coast. The family rose to local political prominence, and Albert’s sister Mary was married to J. W. Perit Huntington, the Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Oregon.
