Zumwalts in Oreg
Sure are a lot of Zumwalts who came to oreg in 1840s and got Donation Land Claims.I suppose they may all be related.TMost or all were from St Charles Co MO

I found my Ambrose Fields and his son Joseph living with John and Sarah Zumwalt and family in Yamhill Co in 1850 census.
Ambrose and Ann Fields had 10 children.Eight of them were in Oreg by 1852, and a ninth one died on the Trail coming here.three of them had Donation Land Claims near John Zumwalt in Yamhill Co.
Just recently I plotted the location of the DLC of daughter Catherine Fields and Shelton Long in Polk Co,and found they are next to John and Lucinda Zumwalt and Isaac and Sarah Zumwalt.
Maybe just a coincidence but a cutiousity to me.Can not find any family tie.The Fields were in Andrew Co MO for a few years before coming to Oreg.
