; ! Mr. Stonobrakor arrived on the
i present site of the city of Pendlotou
;on August 2. I860, and lived In a log
hut nn the north hank of the Umatilla
f ; river, just below the Main street
, , bridge, that winter. His son. Jerome
I Stonehraker. was horn on April 26
J I-1SG1. and was the first white child
, born in the citv limits of the present
city or i'enuieton.
When Mr. Stonehraker arrived here
the Caytises and Umatilla Indians
were using the present site of the
city as a lot In which to break their
ponies to ride.
The ground at that time was cov-
o,fl n-ith Kmrwirh Ktfinaa trnm t h o
river bed. The Indians would round
I lp the ponies on the present site of
.Main street and catch the wildest
, ones, and ride them on the rock
( piles in the old river bed, as the
smooth stones soon tired the horses
and they would make but a lew jumps
hefore giving up and becoming docile,

is naie ana nearly yet. He came
from Page county. Iowa, to Umatilla
county with ox teams, and his first
money earned In this city was by mak
Ing ox yokes from balm trees, for the
At that time the price of a rough
yoke in The Dalles was JS. and as
.Mr. Stonehraker could make fair
wages at the business he charged but
per yoke, and made three a day
I besides helping clear oil a garden
spot and do other work. He made 80
yokes at that price, before supplying
his trade. He also kept the stage
station here In a building on the pres
ent site or the Hotel Pendleton.
