Osborne Russell

Author Code: AORX

Born: Jun. 12, 1814 - Hallowell, Maine, USA

Died: Aug. 26, 1892 - Placerville, California, USA

Russell went to sea in 1830, but left within the year to join the Northwest Fur Trapping & Trading Company, where he worked for three years. He then became a member of Nathaniel Wyeth's second expedition west in 1834. He took part in establishing Fort Hall and then spent a further nine years as a free trader in the Yellowstone region before finally settling in the Oregon Territory in 1842. In 1843, he lost an eye in a mining accident and began to study law. He later became a judge and was involved in local politics. When the California Gold Rush began in 1848, Russell went there, but because of his health was unable to do any prospecting. He set up a store and functioned for a short period as a merchant. During the years 1834 to 1843, Russell kept a diary which has provided an historical account of the everyday life of the Mountainmen.
