Biography of Hon. William H. Kuykendall

Although the esteemed subject of this sketch has not been domiciled within the precincts of Wallowa county so long as some who have broken the sod here, still he has manifested during this time, as heretofore, also, characteristics that stamp him the upright, capable and stanch citizen, and loyal promoter of the free institutions of the land, while his personal qualities of worth have been displayed in a manner quite commensurate with the ability that has been in evidence, and he stands at the present time as one of the prominent, intelligent and leading men of the county. William H. Kuykendall was born near Dallas, Polk County, Oregon, on August 11, 1849, being the son of William H. and Margaret J. (Hines) Kuykendall. When he was but two years of age the father died, and the burdens of the household fell upon the mother. Our subject grew to manhood on the home place and spent the years of his minority in the acquisition of a good education and in assisting his mother as a dutiful and faithful son. In later years this same faithfulness that characterized the boy manifested the true qualities of the man. In educational discipline William was favored in that after completing the studies of the common schools he was permitted to continue his pursuit of knowledge in the McMinnville Academy. Subsequent to the completion of his course he repaired to the old homestead and took up life in the quiet pursuits of general farming and stock raising, which followed with diligence and industry until 1892. Between that date and the time of his advent into our...
