Biographical Sketch of Thomas G. Redfield

THOMAS G. REDFIELD. – Mr. Redfield, one of the substantial citizens and capable business men of North Yakima, Washington, was born in Illinois in 1851. During his infancy he accompanied his parents across the plains to Oregon, and in 1854 was domiciled with them at their home upon Cow creek in Douglas county, Oregon. With the exception of two years in California, Mr. Redfield’s early life was spent in Oregon; and upon reaching an age of independence, he found no field more promising than Yakima county. He accordingly located at Yakima City in 1881, opening out a jewelry store, and doing a successful business. Three years later he moved with the rest of the business houses to North Yakima, and since that time has been carrying on a thriving industry in watches and jewelry. He is one of the property owners of the place, and a citizen of recognized merit.

He was married in Josephine county, Oregon, June 6, 1879, to Miss Metta Davis of California. They have five children, one of whom is deceased.
