So My dad used to live in Chiloquin Oregon when he was in high school. His parents had a 180 acre ranch about a mile west from Rapids Cafe. They used to call it the 'Old Wilson Place' My Grandparents sold the land to the Wolff Family, and it was split up and sold..I need to know what happened to the land..and if anything is still left of the ranch. Thanx

Ps. My dad used to say all the time that he was 27 miles north of Klamath Falls...But i think he was talking about Chiloquin in general...

"Rapids Cafe" doesn't ring any bells, but then I haven't been here that long. How about some street names? Which general direction from the city of Chiloquin? Out toward Sprague River, out toward Agency Lake?

You could contact the Oregon State Archives in Salem for land records but they would likely need more information than what you have given here.

You can also pay a title company to do a title search for you, but they need some type of address to get started.

HI I was happy to find this I was trying to do some research on our faimlys ranch to find a picture of our brand when I found this. When I was a kid we had the upper ranch wich was on the Spiruge River and the lower ranch wich was located from Klamath Lake to the Crater Lake HWY. We also had a few parcels scatered on the Wiliamson River and the old Potaoe Cellers just down the road from the Wilamson River Store. I remember Garandpa having a map with there land holdings painted on it at the time there was over 19000 acers in the ranch. We raised resgestered Hurfords and Angus, crops included alfalfa and potatoes in wich my faimly co-owned a produce company out of Portland there used to be a painted advertisement for that company in Eugene Oregon. My Great Grandfather passed and left it to his son my Granfather, he farmed and ranched with my Uncle Gerry Wolff. His two sisters also were involved with the book keeping and sales. My uncle and his wife managed to get control of the ranch after my grandfathers death. They destroyed the ranch in less than ten years by over spending and drugs. Unfortanatly two life times of hard work were lost. My Uncle commited suicide it has been questioned as to it being murder and seems more and more the case. As for my aunt she managed to loose the rest and only has a few acers left. It is a very tragic story, I remember cattle drives from the upper to lower ranch in the fall branding in the spring and my grandfather not letting me get out to help in the feed lot he was affraid I would get lost in the mud. I lot of fond memories for a life that few get to experience.

Check the county web site. The surveyor may have maps and aerial photos online that give the names of the original donation land claims.
