HARVEY C. MEANS. – This flourishing merchant of the town of Umatilla was born in Missouri in 1858, and while yet a boy, in 1863, crossed the plains with his parents to Oregon, stopping in Umatilla county. During those early days he had the severe experiences of a pioneer life in this country, acquiring a hardihood and force, both of frame and character, which has ever stood him in good stead. He enjoyed the advantages off a good common-school education, and in 1880 came to the town to find a business opening, first engaging in draying, jobbing and clerking. In 1888 he succeeded J.H. Kunzie in his general merchandise business, whose store was the oldest in the county. Mr. Means is very successful in this line, and also conducts the postoffice, being well and worthily known throughout the section.
