Written by Mrs. Hardy Rock (Alexandria Ley Rock), 1949

Edited by Mrs. George R. Goodrich of Tillamook, Oregon

We obtained a copy of "Short History of the Little Nestucca River Valley and Its Early Pioneers" from the Oregon Historical Society. Mrs. Betty Bauer typed the copy provided to the Oregon Historical Society, and students and staff of NVMS retyped each page for publication on the web.

Read here an interesting story about how Mrs. Betty Bauer became involved in typing this history and how we learned of her involvement.
