The first American flag ever sewn in Oregon celebrates its 150th birthday this weekend. It flew for the first at an Independence Day barbecue in Portland in 1861. It was sewn by Ann Elizabeth Bills, an Oregon pioneer. She and her husband, Cincinnati Bills, moved here from Indiana in 1853. Cincinnati Bills started Oregon's first hauling business, which still operates today as the Oregon Transfer Company. It was an employee of that company who noticed there was no American flag in Portland. He asked his wife, Ann, to make one and he helped her secure the materials.
