Introduction

The Jory Family & Friends Association was founded in 1993 with the goal of restoring and preserving the Jory Pioneer Cemetery and with the goal of providing a venue for the collection and preservation of genealogical documents and other information relating to the family and friends of the Association. James and Mary Jory traveled to Oregon along with their children by wagon in 1847 over the Oregon Trail. They settled just South of Salem, Oregon in the Rosedale district. The Jory Pioneer Cemetery originated in 1854 on the original homestead when the first family member to die in Oregon passed away.
