Bingham was my ggrandfather.He had 7 children. Descendents of these (1 exception) still live in OR or WA (one moved to California before WWII).I live in Vancouver.
There were several of Bingham's 1st cousins (descendents of John) who were in the area (and some of their descendents still are) but I haven't followed them too closely.
Bingham was born (1856) in Athens Co. Ohio, Son of William and Catherine (Friedline) Gabriel.His mother died in Ill about 1861.After her death, they moved back to Athens Co.where William remarried Hester Ann Winget.After the Civil War (William served in the 7th Ohio Vol. Cav.) the family moved to Excelsior, MO.He got on a horse and rode west when he was about 18 and settled in the Willamette Valley.He Married Louisa Hubbard in 1879 in Marion Co.They lived in Dayton, OR until she died in 1910.He remained in Dayton for quite awhile then moved to Portland where he died in 1926.
