JESSE HASTON
From 'History of Montana', published 1894, Joaquin Miller

On the corner of Eighth and Palmer Streets, Miles City Montana, is the beautiful and commodious residence of one of the leading cattlemen of Custer County -- Jesse Haston. His home is surrounded with a beautiful and well-kept lawn.

He was born at Glasgow, Howard County, Missouri in 1841, and the son of Jesse and Elizabeth Haston. His father was a well-to-do farmer who removed from east Tennessee to Missouri in 1818 when the people of that state had still to live in forts to protect themselves from the Indians.

Jesse grew up on his father's farm, being educated at the common schools and at Central College, Fayette Mo. When of age he still remained on the old farm for a number of years, but later he engaged in purchasing and shipping tobacco, but not being very stout physically and having had financial reverses, he determined to try his fortune out West; so with poor health and as little money as health, in the year 1879 he turned his steps westward. On the first day of August 1879 at Camp Sheridan Nebraska, he entered the employment of the Niobara Cattle Company as a cowboy and the tenderfoot of the outfit and by hard work and always being faithful to the trusts confided to him, in a few years having passed through all the phases of cowboy life and the cattle business he became manager of the company. In 1890 at Holden Missouri he married Ida McMelan who was born in Toronto Canada and came with her parents to this country when a child. They have two bright little girls: Jessie May and Katharyn Seymour.

Mr. Haston is a man who takes a deep interest in all matters of a public nature that are for the good of the community in which he lives, and is ever ready to do his
part as a good citizen or neighbor. Page 403
