[edit] Coburg

Small Pox epidemic hits Lane County. A pest house is set up in Eugene where sick people are to go to get well and not to infect others. Few Coburg people went to Eugene, 3 and a half hours away. At the height of the epidemic many of the girl children were sent to the Kalapooya Indian tribe in Brownsville. The boy children stayed in Coburg as they were needed for farm work.
