JESSE IMBLER. – A native of Kentucky (1842), Mr. Imbler as a boy came west to Iowa, and in 1853 continued the journey to Oregon, being all this while with his father, who made his home near Eugene. Upon the appeal made for soldiers to quell the Rogue river Indians in 1855-56, Jesse then but sixteen, joined his two older brothers at the front, where, on account of his youth, he was assigned to the supply department, and remained with it to the end of the war.

Returning home he accompanied his father and brother to The Dalles, and engaged with them in extensive cattle operations. In 1868, however, a removal was made to the Grande Ronde; and in that magnificent valley each voter in the family located a claim and engaged in stock-raising. Mr. Jesse Imbler still owns his first homestead. In addition to this he has swelled his land-holding to an aggregate of a thousand acres, all of which he supervises personally and keeps in cultivation. He has pleasant surroundings, and has made special effort with improved stock, owning some one hundred and twenty high-grade Hereford and Durham short-horn cattle and a considerable number of high-grade Norman Percheron horses, imported by himself, and the first of the kind in this section.

In 1867 he was married to Miss Esther Massiker, of Yamhill county. They have a fine family of four children. Mr. Imbler has not shirked public duties, having twice served in the onerous position of county commissioner.
