Among the lending merchants of the county. Davis Wilcox, of Haines, occupies a well deserved position. He has been established there since 1887, being associated with his brother, L. T. Wilcox, until 1893, since which time he has conducted the business alone. He is at present carrying a complete line of general merchandise, farming instruments, lumber, cord wood and grain being a very heavy handler of the last named commodity. His store, which is 42×70, two stories, is well filled with any article the farmer may want, it being Mr. Wilcox’s aim to cater to their needs, and in this we believe he has been successful.
He is a native of Wisconsin, and in 1872, at the age of 13, with his parents, settled in the Willamette Valley, receiving his education at the public schools and in Pacific University, at Forest Grove. He is an apt illustration of the progressive clement of young manhood which has brought Baker County to the front.
