History of Central Oregon Page


I think this is from 1904.

William K. McCormack a leading citizen of Lake county, is occupied in wool growing and resides some eight miles northwest of Paisley. He was born on August 16, 1875, in New Brunswick Canada. William McCormack, his father a native of the same place, descended from Scotch ancestors and came to the United States in 1876. In the same year he made his way to the Sacramento valley in California and in 1881, moved to Sierra County, California, and in 1887 he landed in Paisley. He engaged in the Stock business until 1901 when he sold out and is now living retired in Los Angeles, California. He married Elizabeth Mackenzie, also a native of New Brunswick who is still living.

The children born to this couple are John R., in Inyo County, California; Mrs. Anna Moss, near Paisley, and William K., our subject. William K, came with his parents to California in 1876 and to this part of Oregon in 1887. He graduated from the high school in Lakeview when seventeen years of age and two years' previous to that had received a certificate to teach school. However he never engaged in that business but when nineteen bought a few cattle and commenced stock-raising in which he has continued ever since.

In 1903 he purchase l sheep and now has about two thousand head and is giving his attention largely to wool growing. He has quite a large band of Thoroughbred Durham cattle and also owns nine hundred and twenty acres of land at the home-place, which is practically well suited to raising hay. The improvements are a good large barn comfortable residence, two acres of orchards fences and so forth and so forth. In the orchards besides other varieties of fruit that can be grown in this latitude, William K McCormack has planted some English walnuts, which are doing very fine at this time.He also owns four other ranches in different parts of the county, which are utilized for grazing purposes.

On October 25, 1899, Mr. McCormack married Frances Uren. who was born in Wisner, Nebraska. Her father William Uren, married Frances J. Ivey and both are natives of England. They came to the United States and lived in Ne-braska, then in Colorado, and in 1881 came to Oregon. After spending some time in The Dalles, they came to Crook County and are now residing at Oregon City. Mrs. McCormack's (Frances Uren's??) brothers and sisters are William S., an attorney at Oregon City; Mrs. Sauna Child of Lane county; Thomas who was a wholesale merchant at. Johannesburg South Africa and died there in July 1900; and Charles of Wasco county. Mrs. McCormack is the youngest of the family. She is a Graduate of the state normal at Monmouth and holds a life certificate for teaching in the state of Oregon. She has taught in various places and is a thoroughly well educated woman.

Mr. and Mrs. McCormack have been born two children, William Uren and Elizabeth. Mr. McCormack belongs to the W. W. and is a stanch Republican. He is a well-informed man, a good Citizen and highly esteemed by all.
