J.W. GEORGE. - This gentleman is the second son of Presley and Mahala Nickerson
George, and was born in Ohio November 11, 1835, but removed to our state at so
early an age as to receive his education at the Santiam Academy in Linn county.
He became well known as one of the most promising young men of our state, and
early developed unusual business capacity. In 1873 he made a permanent home at
Seattle, Washington Territory, and entered actively into the business and social
development of this metropolis of the Sound, acquiring also extensive real
estate and property interests. July 2, 1884, he was appointed, by President
Arthur, United States marshal for the territory, and served until after the
change of administration. Although meeting with a heavy loss by the great fire
of June, 1889, he was no less able than the most of Seattle's energetic business
men to recover himself and carry on his enterprises as before. A man of
integrity, ability and vigor he has a strong hold upon business and political
affairs in Washington, and is a recognized power in a community noted for men of
high character.
