SEXTON, DAVID

In 1857, Caroline Niday Stumbo married David H. Sexton whom she had met during the Rogue River Indian Wars.  He was from New York and crossed the plains arriving in the Willamette Valley in October of 1847.  

In the spring of 1852, David Sexton moved to Jacksonville, Oregon.  The next year he joined a company of volunteers under the command of United States Army Captain Lamerick to protect settlers against the Indians.  He fought the Indians at the mouth of Williams Creek on the Applegate River.  For David, this was the beginning of many battles he would fight in our region lasting up until 1857 when the Takelma Indians were forced onto the reservations.  After their marriage, David joined Caroline on the farm in Hugo and on September 27, 1859 was born to them their only child, Charles D. Sexton.  Mt. Sexton is named after his father.
