Biography of Gen. John H. Stevens

GEN. JOHN H. STEVENS. – This hero of a hundred Western adventures, and a pioneer of the great Inland Empire, was born on a town line in Windham County, Vermont. The son of Asa Stevens, a miller and farmer, he learned to use his hands and brain in practical affairs, and at the village school obtained a good working education. In his youth he followed business in Boston, and was engaged in lumbering in Pennsylvania. In 1832 he came west to Michigan, and at Coldwater, Branch County, kept a hotel, advancing his business also by taking mail contracts, and in such early ventures as the conditions of life in the Wolverine state afforded at that early day. He became a colonel in the state militia, and succeeded also to a generalship. Eight years he served as sheriff of Branch county, and during that time made many notable arrests. In 1852 he prepared for the journey to Oregon, rigging up a large team of mules and horses, and with his daughter Mary C., who subsequently became the wife of the famous lawyer of Eugene, Oregon, Stukeley Ellsworth, and with thirteen young men, among whom was Green Arnold, now of LaGrande, made the journey across the plains.

Biography of Edward P. Ashby

EDWARD P. ASHBY. – Among those who came to Union county with limited capital and have been enabled to work out here a competence for themselves, becoming prosperons and well-to-do in the goods of this world, may be mentioned the successful agriculturist and stockman whose name is at the head of this brief article and who stands to day as one of the substantial and worthy citizens of this progressive and wealthy county. At the present time Mr. Ashby owns a good farm about seven miles north of North Powder, and also a comfortable residence in the town of North Powder, where he is dwelling now for the purpose of having better school facilities for his children. His estate is well improved and he is handling considerable stock. When he landed in this county in 1871, with his parents, he was not possessed of much of this world’s goods, and thinking that there were better opportunities farther ahead they went on to the Willamette valley, and for six years wrought in that region and then returned in 1877 to Union county. The father homesteaded a place in Pyle’s canyon, and there he and the subject of this sketch went into partnership in raising stock, this arrangement continuing until 1893, when the son took the homestead, which is now his farm. On February 13, 1879, Mr. Ashby and Miss Francelia,...

Among those who have made names for themselves and who have become established in the confidence of the people while they have built up establishments that are worthy of note in the business world is the gentleman whose name initiates this paragraph and who has both demonstrated excellent ability and manifested integrity in his career.
