A family history and genealogical presentation of the early settlers of the Holy Rosary Church/Mission near Scotts Mills on Crooked Finger Road (in Marion County, Oregon). The settlers were all immigrants from Germany, Austria, or Switzerland, with one exception. Many illustrations from portraits and pictures of these early families, as well as some photographs of the early church and several Benedictine fathers.
