Historical Note:
Born in Ohio in 1830, Ezra Meeker emigrated to Washington Territory in 1852 via the Oregon Trail. Actively involved in the early events of Washington Territory, Meeker was an historian who made it his life's work to commemorate the Oregon Trail and its pioneers. From 1906 to 1908, Meeker made his first of several trips back across the Oregon trail, raising funds in communities along the way to place commemorative markers. Selling post cards contributed to the funds. Eventually he placed 150 markers along the trail.

Beginning in his 70s, he worked tirelessly to memorialize the trail, repeatedly retracing the trip of his youth. Meeker traveled from 1906-1908, then again from 1910-1912, by wagon across the country to heighten public awareness and raise commemorative markers for the trail's original emigrants. …….Tacoma Public Library and Wikipedia
