Richard Ough

1. Richard Ough, b. 1789 in England… married Betsy …, a Cascade Indian… d. 1884

Betsy Slahuts b. … OT, a Cascade Indian, d. 16 July 1911

Notes: From “Letters of Dr. McLoughlin 1829 -1832”: Ough, Richard: a boatswain of the British Navy. A very tall man who married the daughter of Latourette Lind of Washougal.

Comment: This is at odds with the Indian Princess story unless an earlier marriage ?

Dated 21 Dec 1831: Richard Ough has complained to me that the Grog they get is too weak.

From “Men of Champoeg” Married by JS Griffin at the house of Richard Ough before William Baldra and his wife, witnesses, November 6, 1842, Mr. Richard Ough of Cornwall, England, to Miss Betsy Slahuts of the Columbia Cascades.

Comment: This was a second marriage ceremony – this time by clergy – the first was by Dr. McLoughlin.
