Meet Charles Coe, son of Nathaniel and Mary Coe. In 1854 the Coes settled in Hood River, building a cabin near what is now 10th and State Street. Charles was the second postmaster of Hood River. He passed away in 1872 on his 38th birthday. Upon his death his brothers Henry and Eugene returned to Hood River to manage the family farm, and subsequently (1882) platted the city of Hood River.
