  • My name is Colleen Hyde. I am the family genealogist for the Hyde family of Linn and Grant counties, Oregon. Our ancestor, Perry Hyde, was born in 1825, in KY (possibly Laurel county). He married Eliza Tyler and their son Francis Marion was born in Oak Grove, KY in 1850. In 1851 they went by wagon train to Linn county, OR. We haven’t been able to trace his line further back.
