Polly Crandall - History

Silverton’s Founding Mother:Polly Lavinia Crandall was born the oldest of ten children in New York on November 24, 1825, and in 1842, moved with her family to Wisconsin. For the next ten years Polly and her brothers labored on the farm, planting crops and clearing land. Polly became a teacher and married another school teacher, Thomas Coon, in January 1845. In 1850, Thomas traveled west and settled in the Willamette Valley where he continued teaching.

Twenty-six year old Polly and her small daughter Cornelia, crossed the plains in 1852 to join her husband in Oregon in a wagon train organized by her parents, Paul and Sally Crandall. They traveled from Wisconsin via the Barlow trail. Shortly after she arrived here, Thomas’s health failed; he passed away in January of 1954. Polly gave birth to a son, Thomas Roy Coon in March of that year.
