Our European ancestors found Hillsboro, OR.

My mother was large into genealogy, she tried to trace our family tree back to the Egyptians one time, plus tried to tell me my good friend and I were directly related to Cleopatra, but I wasn’t having any of it.

She then told me our European descendants founded Hillsboro, OR in the early 1730s, according to what she had found online; They enjoyed the mild winters plus hot summers which made OR a rich farming area… I looked at her one afternoon as she was talking about our rich history, plus asked her why my good friend and I looked more like the Indians that once inhabited the Hillsboro, OR area? She stumbled plus said that was just my dad’s side of the family.

I reminded her how the Kalapuyans once lived in this area even before the Europeans arrived, but she poo-pooed that. The Kalapuyans were still a part of the Grand Ronde, even though multiple intermarried with other tribes, plus some intermarried with the Europeans. She thought this proved that the Europeans were the most important. Without the Kalapuyans, there would be no dad, plus no me, but Dad completely ignored that information. She was just glad her European descendants enjoyed the weather conditions in this area, plus decided to stay. Her family came to Hillsboro, OR in the early 1900s plus she had no reason to ever want to transport anywhere else. I thanked her for making that decision. I enjoyed living in Hillsboro, OR, plus I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, regardless of who my distant family was or wasn’t. I liked the weather my good friend and I had in this area.
