დდ═♥═♥════════ೋღ❤ღೋ════════♥═♥═დდJames S. McMeen was Andrew Morrow's partner on what became the Morrow-Keenan Ranch in the Grizzly area. During the cattle-sheep trouble of 1904, vigilantes killed over 1000 of their sheep. They had thousands of sheep, several hundred cattle, and 6000 acres of dry land farming.
An Illustrated History of Central Oregon, Western Historical Publishing Company, Spokane, WA. 1905:
JAMES S. McMEEN is a stock raiser and farmer residing three miles northwest from Lamonta. He was born in Ohio on February 25, 1852. His father, John McMeen, was born in Pennsylvania and was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted in Company J, Thirty-seventh Ohio Cavalry, in which he served until 1863, when he was thrown from his horse in Louisville, Kentucky, from the effects of which he died that same year. Our subject was educated in the common schools of Ohio and remained on the old home place until twenty-one years of age. Then he went to Philadelphia, later visited Chicago and then went back to the old home place in Ohio from which he started on September 8, 1883, for the west. He came direct to his present location and took a homestead. At that time, he had a capital of one hundred dollars. He began raising sheep and horses and has continued in that business together with farming. He is increasing his property holdings so that he now owns eight hundred and eighty acres which is well improved and productive. He has a beautiful home, one hundred head of cattle and other property.

In November, 1884, Mr. McMeen married Emma F. Williams, a native of Illinois and the daughter of William Williams. Three children are the fruit of this union, Charles, Lloyd and Bruce. Our subject has one brother, David, in Ohio.

Fraternally, he is a member of the W. W. and is a man well known as substantial and industrious.
