Found a little more info already. Apparently George turned inland on the ship Bostonian because he'd heard of gold discovered in the area. He did stay in Oregon and sold or traded the cargo of the ship. He became the postmaster of Gardiner, Oregon in 1851. Other Snellings in Oregon were the families of William (Sarah Scott), Daniel and Vincent from MO and not known to be related to the Boston family. You could probably find a lot of info by contacting the Douglas County OR genweb or historical society.
