Blair, Prior F

From Lane Co Oregon

“Another of the men who came to Oregon and withstood the hardships of the early settlement of the state has passed to the great beyond,” said the front page of the Eugene Daily Guard on June 23, 1893. “We refer to that true and well-known gentleman, Prior F. Blair” (1818-1893). He came to Oregon in 1847, settling in Pleasant Hill. He later took up a claim just west of Eugene Skinner’s. Today, the area is known as the Blair Boulevard Historic District in west Eugene.
