The stories by Ilia Owen Thompson (b. ca. 1866) appear to be mostly, though not entirely, fiction.

Thompson moved with his family from Princeton, Iowa and settled in Benton County, Oregon around 1875. He was long time resident of Camp Sherman, Oregon, where he lived in a cabin on the Metolius River in the 1930's and 40's. Around the time that this was published (1913) he was making extensive observational travels across the country in a buggy with two Canadian ponies, making it so far as Los Angeles and New York.

Places in Sherman, Wasco, Baker, and Umatilla Counties (as well as other Oregon locales) appear in Thompson's writing.
