     DAN DEVORE was born in Ohio in 1853.  He came with his parents to southern Iowa in 1856 and there grew to manhood and received his educational training.  In 1884 we find him in Colorado whence he began a life of prospecting and adventure and has continued uninterruptedly until the present time.  Mr. Devore traveled extensively all through California and the adjoining states for five years, giving himself almost entirely to prospecting.  Then he came to the Lake Chelan country.  From that time until the present Mr. Devore has given his attention almost exclusively to prospecting, but has also acted as guide for various hunting parties traveling through Washington and British Columbia.  Mr. Devore has familiarized himself with all the various mining districts in this section and is well acquainted with every portion where game and fish abound plentifully.  In addition to that he has located many claims in the various mining sections and is to be classed as one of the expert prospectors and hunters of the county.  Mr. Devore is an expert also in packing and has transported goods to various parts of this country.  He is considered one of the pioneers and old timers in Chelan county, and has many friends.
