Fred Heber, Commissioner
and W. H. S. Hyde, Clerk
    Now comes Wm. Kahler & W. B. Kincaid, who have heretofore been appointed as viewers of two Certain County Roads proposed to be laid out in Sams Valley, to assess damages if any there be by reason of the said Road's being laid as per the location and report of Chauncey Nye and T.

May 15th 1866
State of Oregon
County of Jackson
To the Hon. Board of Co. Commissioners:
    The undersigned appointed by the Co. Commissioners of Jackson Co. to review two roads (in Sams Valley) or that portion of the roads, as located through the farms of Mrs. Pelton, John Sisemore and the Estate of E. C. Pelton, deceased, beg leave to report as follows. After being duly qualified, we proceeded to view the road through Mrs. Pelton's farm, thence through the farm of Sisemore & Pelton's Estate, thence through the land of John Sisemore, and assess and determine as follows, to wit:
    That as the road where it is claimed to damage the farm of Mrs. Pelton is located along the line between Mrs. Pelton and Mr. Pankey and follows a lane already made between these two farms, Therefore the farm of Mrs. Pelton would be no less valuable with the road than without it. From the Corner of Section 36, the road runs West along the line fence between the Pelton Estate, and the farm of Mr. Cardwell and we determine that the Pelton Estate by this road would be rendered no less valuable where the road is located diagonally through the 80 acre lot of John Sisemore's land it would cut off from the tract only a small corner of side hill mostly covered with brush and scrubs and nearly or quite worthless and we therefore determine the premises would be rendered no less valuable by the opening of the proposed road. We also reviewed another road from the Corner of Section 36 running East and find that it follows along the line between E. C. Pelton, Deceased and Mrs. Roe's farms and vacant Government land, We therefore determine that the said premises would be rendered no less valuable by opening the proposed road. As the road is very necessary for the Convenience for the whole Neighborhood and they have located the road so as to do the least amount of damage to any one individual.
Wm. Kahler
Wm. B. Kincaid
    The report of Chauncey Nye and T. J. Ramey, viewers of the two Certain Roads in Sams Valley, was this day publicly read a second time.
    And it appearing to the satisfaction of the Board that the Petition of John Sisemore for damages is without good cause, as evidenced by the report of Wm. Kahler and W. B. Kincaid who were heretofore appointed to assess damages if any there be by reason of the opening of the said Roads, and who failed to assess any damages but report that the opening of the said roads is necessary for the Convenience of the whole Neighborhood and that the same are located to as to do the least amount of damage to anyone, It is therefore ordered by the Board that the said two Certain roads be and the same are hereby declared public highways and the Supervisor of said District is hereby ordered to open the Same and put them in as 
good traveling Condition as is practicable.

To the Hon.
County Court for Said County:
    In pursuance to the annexed order with Undersigned, having been first duly sworn according to law, proceeded with B. F. Myer, who was duly appointed & qualified as Surveyor, and after receiving five days previous Notice to meet on the 14th day of March, 1868, and after taking to our assistance two suitable persons as chain bearers and one Marker, who were duly Sworn, proceeded to review and survey the ground over which the road is proposed to be turned and ascertain the distance such road will be increased by the proposed alteration to be 27 links. We certify that the proposed new road has been opened a legal width and in all respects made equal to the old road for the Convenience of travelers. The old road crosses a gulch in two places within the distance of the proposed alteration, requiring a bridge at each crossing of 22 feet span. These bridges have not been replaced as yet this spring. There has been no bridges there for two years, consequently all the travel goes now on the ground where the petitioner prays for the road to be laid. We are of the opinion that the prayer of the petitioner is reasonable and should be granted and the Road established according to the plat and survey herewith returned, March 14th 1868.

"April 28th, 1868, Jackson County, Jackass Creek, Ogn.
    "To the Honorable Board of Road Commissioners: Gentlemen: We, your honorable petitioners, and citizens of the left hand of Jackass or Forest Creek, Log Town Road District, do pray & ask that your Honors do grant the right of way and cause to be constructed by the road Supervisor of this District, an extension of the Public Road, commencing at Log Town, in Jackson County, Oregon, on the main Jackass or Forest Creek, running up said creek to the forks, thence up the left hand fork to the Uppermost Mining Camp on said Creek, thence back to the place of beginning. In conclusion, we would also state that the construction of said road will not cause any outlay financially, as the road with a few exceptions is almost a natural highway: the distance of said road is about five (5) miles, of which about two miles and a half (2½) is a practical wagon road. By granting the right of way and causing to be constructed said road, your Honors would confer a public favor and necessity to your fellow citizens &c."
    And it appearing to the satisfaction of the Court that said petition was signed by Twelve householders of said County residing in the vicinity of said road, and it further appearing that notices of the intention to present such petition had been posted thirty days prior to the presentation of the same, one of said notices at the place of holding County Court of said County, and one of such notices in three public places in the vicinity of the proposed new road and all of said notices posted at the time herein before stated, and W. V. Buckner, one of said petitioners having filed his bond in the sum of fifty dollars, with John Orth as surety, conditioned to pay all costs and expenses in case the prayer of said petitioners be not granted and allowed, which said bond is accepted by the Court.
    It is therefore ordered by the Court that Wm. Ray, John McKee and Franklin Logg, three disinterested householders of said County, be & they are hereby appointed viewers of said proposed Road, and that James S. Howard, County Surveyor, be and he is hereby appointed Surveyor of the same, and that said viewers and Surveyor meet at the Clerk's Office of said County on Saturday the 13th day of June 1868, or on their failure to meet on said day, within five days thereafter and, after being duly qualified, that they proceed to view survey and lay out said road as prayed for in the petition aforesaid and the said viewers or a majority of the same, shall make and sign a report in writing, stating their opinion, in favor of or against the establishment of such road, and set forth the reasons of the same: which report, together with the plat and survey of said road, shall be delivered to the County Clerk, by one of the viewers on or before the third day of the session of the County Court next ensuing.
    The report of Martin Peterson, John Watson and Thos. F. Beall, viewers, is taken  up and publicly read the second time this session of the Court, having been publicly read on Tuesday last, which said report is in words and figures following, to wit:
    "To the Honorable County Court for the County of Jackson, State of Oregon: We the undersigned viewers appointed to view a road from near Hopwood's Mill to Bybee's Ferry on Rogue River, have the Honor to report that we did on the 21st day of May, A.D. 1868, proceed to view out the said road on the lines represented by the report of the Surveyor, herewith presented, and that in our opinion, that said lines are upon the best practicable route for a road, between the Two points above mentioned, and recommend that the road be adopted and also that the old road specified in the petition be vacated, as the new is nearer and better.
Martin Peterson
John Watson
Thos. F. Beall
    Viewers

    And the said report, having been publicly read on Two different days of the present Session or Term of this Court; and there being no remonstrance to the same and no petition for damages or for a review filed; and the Court being satisfied that the said proposed road will be of public utility, the said report is in all things confirmed. It is therefore ordered by the Court that said report, together with the plat and survey, be recorded, and from thenceforth said road shall be considered and established as a public highway, and the Supervisor in whose district said road is situated is required to open the same and to keep the same in good repair. And it is further ordered that the old road specified in the Petition aforesaid, be and the same is hereby vacated.
    The report of R. S. Dunlap and George Brown, a majority of the viewers heretofore appointed to view and lay out a road on Jackson Creek, was publicly read the second time today, which said report is in words and figures following, to wit:
    To the Honorable the County Court for the County of Jackson, State of Oregon,
The undersigned being a majority of the viewers appointed by your Honorable Court at the last term thereof, to view and lay out the road petitioned for by C. S. Drew and others from the confluence of the North and South forks of Jackson Creek to the Occidental Quartz Mill and also to examine and report as to the propriety of vacating the old road between the said North and South forks of said Jackson Creek and Armstrong Gulch, as prayed for in the petition aforesaid, have the honor to report that they have performed the duty for which they were appointed and that they recommend the establishment of the new road and the vacation of the old one, as prayed for. The reasons for making this recommendation are as follows: The establishment of the new road, as proposed, is a matter of more than ordinary importance, both to individuals residing along its line and to the public, as it will afford an ample thoroughfare for the residents along the North fork of Jackson Creek, Cantrall, Timber, Shively and Armstrong Gulches, and of Kanaka Flat, and aid very materially in the development of the numerous quartz ledges in the County, and render accessible to the public a large tract of good timber and various quarries of Superior building stone. The site as located affords an easier grade and better ground for a road than obtains anywhere else, between its beginning and terminus, and the Cost of Construction will be no greater than if located elsewhere, while the expense of keeping it in repair will be infinitely less, and as now located, no damages can be reasonably claimed as no person is injured by it. The building of two short bridges, one each across Timber and Shively Gulches, will be the only considerable expense, aside from easy side hill, grading for the distance of about three-fourths of a mile that will accrue in its construction. It is recommended that the old road be vacated because its location is mainly on mining ground that is being constantly worked and the boundary of the road entirely disregarded. Its grade very irregular, its general condition bad, requiring considerable grading and a new bridge across Armstrong Gulch to render it even passably safe, for ordinary travel, and further because its continuance as a public road will not be in the least necessary when the proposed new road is opened. The Certified return and plat of the proposed new road is herewith enclosed.
    Respectfully Submitted,
R. S. Dunlap
Geo. Brown
    Viewers

    And the said report, having been publicly read on Two different days of the present Term of this Court, and there being no remonstrance to the same, and no petition for damages or for a review filed and the Court being satisfied that said proposed new road will be of public utility and that the old road recommended to be vacated is unnecessary, It is considered by the Court that the said report be and is hereby in all things confirmed. It is therefore ordered by the Court that the said report, together with the plat and survey be recorded and from thenceforth the said proposed road shall be considered and is hereby established as a public highway and the Supervisor in whose District the same is situated is required to open the same and to keep the same in good repair. And it is further ordered that the old road specified in the foregoing report be and the same is hereby vacated.
    And the Court adjourned without day.

    "We the undersigned viewers appointed by the County Court of Jackson County to view, mark out, locate and assess the damages for a private road from the lands of Joseph H. Davis, situate about one half or three quarters of a mile south of the County road leading from Jacksonville to Phoenix in Jackson County. Said private road to pass from the lands of Joseph H. Davis through lands of Mrs. H. Schmidtling and terminate at said County Road, would respectfully report that on the 18th day of July, 1868, the day appointed in Said order of appointment and, after more than three days' Notice given to said 
Schmidtling, through whose lands said private road was to be viewed and located and after being duly sworn, we did on said day, to wit, the 18th day of July, 1868, meet on the said lands of Joseph H. Davis situate as aforesaid and on said lands did mark by blazing a large Black Oak about two feet in diameter, for a commencing of said private road, and proceeded a little east of a north course, locating said private road to the foot of the Hill by blazing the trees and cutting the brush and bushes: thence near a north course to the County road as aforesaid, to a gate on the line of said Schmidtling's fence, running parallel with said County road, Marking the line of location by blazing the trees and cutting the brush, so that the entire line of location from said Davis' lands to the gate on the County road as aforesaid, is well defined, the distance the said private road passes through the lands of said Schmidtling is about one half mile and as a general thing said lands is unfit for cultivation. We would further say that we have located said private road from the lands of said Davis, through the lands of said Schmidtling so as to do the least damage to said Schmidtling and the land through which the private road passes and would further say that there is an absolute necessity that said private road should be established, as the lands of said Davis are so situated that they have no connection with any public road. There is a suitable gate on the line of fence running parallel with said County road, where the private road intersects the same, that in consideration of the locating of the private road and the passage through the gate which will be necessary on said line of fence on the lands of said Schmidtling, we assess the damages to be paid to said Schmidtling by said Davis at Twenty Dollars, and believe the same to be ample for the Same, August 3rd, 1868.
A. Tenbrook
David Redpath
    And thereupon Came Peter Schmidtling and Henrietta, his wife by their atty., James D. Fay and file their remonstrance to said report. And the Court after hearing the argument of W. G.

    Now come Han Foo and Co. by their Attorney, O. Jacobs &
file their petition for damages and remonstrance to the location of a County road up Jackass Creek in said County, as located by Francis Logg, Wm. Ray and John McKee, Viewers, on the 16th day of June, 1868, which said petition or remonstrance is in words and figures following, to wit:
    We the undersigned come by their atty. O. Jacobs & complaining, say That they are the owners and in the possession of a Mining Claim on said Jackass Creek in said County & State over which said road passes, as laid out by the Viewers appointed by this Honorable Court. The East half of said Mining Claim is inside of Logg and McDonald's field or enclosure and said road passes over the Upper or North and East half of said Mining Claim. Said Claim is four hundred and 30 yards in length and one hundred in width. It is bounded on the lower end by the Claims of Lip Hang, Chinamen, and on the upper end by John Buckley Mining Claim. Said Claim is of the value of Twenty-five hundred dollars, that being the amount the undersigned paid for it May 4th, 1866, in gold coin, and the claim is of that value today. The undersigned aver that the said road passes over the portion of the same that is unworked and that said road will prevent the working of the same. These complainants aver that they are damaged by the location of said road in its present position in the Sum of fifteen hundred dollars, and they ask for the same if the road is continued in its present location, and your Complainants ask for the appointment of three disinterested householders who are miners and acquainted with the ground to inquire into and assess the damages.
Han Foo and Co.
per O. Jacobs, their attorney

    It is therefore ordered by the Court that Lewis H. Zigler, George Ratrie and James A. Cardwell, three disinterested Householders of said County, be and they are hereby appointed viewers of damages, as aforesaid, who shall meet upon some certain day, as may be agreed upon by said Householders, and after having been duly qualified to discharge their duty faithfully and impartially, shall proceed and view said proposed Road, the whole distance through the premises of the Complainants, Han Foo and Co., and assess and determine how much less valuable such premises of the Complainants, Han Foo and Co., would be rendered by the opening of said Road. And said viewers shall report the same in writing to the County Court of said County, at the next regular Term thereof, to be begun and held on the 1st Monday of September, 1868.
    Now comes L. T. Davis and files his bond in the sum of sixteen hundred dollars, with James T. Glenn and John S. Dunn as Sureties, for the faithful performance of his Hospital Contract, made and entered into this day, by and between himself and the Board of County Commissioners of said County, which said bond is accepted and approved by the Court.

    The report of the Viewers heretofore appointed to view and locate a County road from the Hill farm in said County and terminating at the Lost River gap is this day read, which report is in the words and figures following, to wit:
"Report"
    We, the undersigned viewers appointed by the Commissioners Court of Jackson County, Oregon, to view out and locate a wagon road, petitioned for by the Citizens of Link River, Klamath Lake and Vicinity, Starting at the State road on the Hill farm, Rogue River Valley, and terminating at the Lost River Gap in Klamath Lake Basin, report that they met on the 30th day of July, 1868, and after being duly qualified, explored the route and located the road, having found a good practicable route for a wagon road, and would recommend its establishment in pursuance of the Plat and Survey herewith returned, and also would earnestly recommend the Citizens of Jackson County as well as its Honorable Court, to afford every facility at their command to open the road, as a good wagon road to this part of our County and State is not only indispensable to the best interests of the petitioners, but to the County, State and General Government. One thousand dollars judiciously expended by Jackson County in opening out the road to this part of the Country would be a good investment for the County financially, as the increase of our revenue Consequent to the immediate Settlement of the County by the wealthy stock raisers of Oregon (who are not ignorant of its peculiar adaptation to their business) would more than double the expense of the County in opening the road the first year; the State would realize a corresponding increase of revenue besides increasing the value of its lands through which the road passes. The General Government by expending ten thousand dollars in opening and extending this road to Goose Lake would save Twenty thousand dollars at least every year in the transportation of supplies to the Military Posts and Indian Reservations East of the Mountains, as the principal part of these Supplies would then be raised by the Settlers who would occupy and cultivate the lands as fast as the Indians were removed to the Reservations. That this would be the Case if we had a good road for immigrants to travel, no sane man can doubt, as demonstrated by the enterprising farmers of Rogue River Valley, who are supplying Fort Klamath with grain raised in the immediate vicinity of the Fort. The capacity of this County for grain raising is fully settled by the experiments of the present year, and this Country must and will settle up. By the adoption of a wise & liberal policy on the part of the County, State, and General Government, we shall be able to conquer a permanent peace with the Indians and garrison our fertile valleys East of the Mountains with an enterprising, thrifty farming population. The Honorable Commissioners for Jackson County will please accept the above as the unanimous report of their appointees, August 19th, 1868.

Samuel Colver
W. F. Songer
    And thereupon comes W. F. Songer and files his petition for Damages, which said petition is in words and figures following, to wit:
