Phoebe Judson

(1831 - 1926)

Phoebe Judson was twenty years old when she left Ohio with her husband to travel to the Washington Territory in 1853; she was ninety-five when her account of the journey was published in 1925. Her family lived for eighteen years in and around Olympia (then just a village of a few log cabins) before pioneering north. The town they founded, Lynden, remains there.
