C.S. PERRIN. – Mr. Perrin was born on a farm near Newton, Jasper county, Iowa, in 1857. He crossed the plains with his parents in 1871, locating near Salem, Oregon, engaging with them in agriculture. There he received his education at the Willamette University and the Chemeketa Academy, teaching public school during the summer season and attending upon a course of study during the winter, until 1878. After receiving his education, he followed teaching as a profession until 1881, coming in that year to Eastern Oregon and locating within the present limits of Gilliam county, near Arlington, engaging in the stock business, in which he still retains a considerable interest.
