THOMAS H. KAYLER. – Mr. Kayler, a gentleman of wide reputation, was born in Lenox county, Canada, in 1856, and resided on his father’s farm sixteen years, and afterwards learned the drug business at Napanee. In the spring of 1876 he came to California, and made his first location in Sacramento, where he found employment in the drug store of Justice Gates & Co. The following year he removed to Santa Rosa, coming soon afterwards to Portland. The next summer, in company with Peter Graham, he drove with teams to the Palouse country, and located on three hundred and twenty acres half a mile south of the present city of Pullman, Washington, being among the first settlers in that vicinity. He followed farming until 1884, when he returned to his old business, opening a drug store in Pullman, and conducting it with various intermissions until the fall of 1888. In the above year he sold his first holding, and purchased two hundred and forty acres three-fourths of a mile north of the city. He also owns a large town property in Pullman, and is one of the responsible men of the place, being dealer in real estate. He was married in that city January 1, 1879, to Miss Della Layman. By this union they have two children.
