Among the many pioneers of this county none stand higher in the estimation of their fellow citizens than the subject of our sketch.

Born in New York in 1838, he came to California at the age of 17 with his oldest brother and resided there for a period of nine years.

On the 4th day of July 1862, he arrived in Grant County, and became engaged in mining. In 1804, in connection with A. R. Callum, he built the John Day flouring mills, being the first one built east of the Cascades in the State. He operated it until 1874, when he disposed of his interest to James Norman.

He then took up his old calling of photography, and has followed that more or less ever since. In 1878 he was nominated by the Democratic Party for County Judge, and being elected, served until 1882. He was re-elected again in 1890, to the same office. In 1890 he was elected County Treasurer, which position he still occupies. He takes quite an interest in fraternal affairs having been secretary of Canyon City Lodge No. 34, A. F. & A. M., continuously since 1882, except one year, when he served as master. He is also a member of Hobah lodge No. 22, I. O. O. F., being a P. N. G. and is also Past Chief Patriarch of Excelsior Encampment No. 3.

Judge Hazeltine married Miss Emiline McCallum in April 1802, and has four children, his oldest daughter being the wife of Hon. M. D. Clifford, Circuit Judge of the Ninth Judicial District, and his second the wife of Hun. John W. Biggs, mayor of Burns, Oregon.
