    Looking for information on Josephine Grubbs

    Talitha Bennett Newbie

      Looking for records and information from the residential school that Josephine Grubbs attended.  I believe it was in Oregon as they moved that direction when she was around 5. They lived in Corvallis.

          Dear Ms. Bennett,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1860 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1870 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1880 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Josephine Grubbs in Oregon. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov


          Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1.  We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience as we balance mission-critical work and the safety of our staff during the pandemic. Please check NARA’s web page about COVID-19 updates for the latest information.


          You may wish to search Ancestry or FamilySearch for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.


          We also located a copy of the Wallamet University Catalog from 1861 that lists a Josephine Grubbs from Corvallis (see below).


          We hope that this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
