Peter Skene Ogden

Fur trader, trapper, explorer, diplomat and patriarch.

Born: 1794 in Quebec, Canada

Died: 1854 in Oregon City, Oregon

The City of Ogden and Ogden River in Utah are named in his honor.

 

I have run into a few historic markers that mentioned Peter, like this one in Idaho and this one in Northern Utah.
