The family shortly thereafter moved to Marion County, Oregon, where they are found from 1870 through 1900. James and Rebecca are found in Roseburg, Douglas County in 1910.

Agnes and "C B" were married 8 April 1891, in Marion County. Alta, according to her delayed birth certificate, was born in Mount Angel, 13 April 1892, and in the 1895 census, C B, Agnes, and Alta were in the Salem area. It's difficult to tell where anyone "really was" in this unique census, which is vague for location and family relationships and very specific for personal characteristics.

By 1900, C B, Agnes and Alta have moved to Kansas, where Gladys was born in 1902. In 1905, on the state census, C B, Agnes, Alta, and Gladys are found in Marion, Bourbon County, Kansas. They are still there in 1910 and 1920, but by 1925 they have returned to Oregon, where C B died in 1925.

Agnes is living with Gladys and her family in Oak Grove, Clackamas County, Oregon, in 1930.
