     GEORGE W. BRINDLE, a farmer living one half mile south and two miles east of Mondovi, Washington, was born in Ashland county, Ohio, February 14, 1857.  His father was John Brindle, born in Pennsylvania, and died in Ohio in the year 1876; and his mother was Susan (Burns) Brindle, who is still living on the old homestead in Ohio at the age of seventy-three years.  She, too, was born in Pennsylvania, the daughter of Peter Burns, a soldier of the War of 1812, who lived to the age of ninety-six.
     Mr. Brindle's brothers and sisters are, Mrs. Elizabeth Cotter, Mary, Mrs. Martha Gongwer, Mrs. Emma Markley, Mrs. Josephine Boles, Mrs.  Alice Simpson, John, Elmer and Edward.
     The subject of our sketch was reared to manhood on a farm in the state of his birth.  In the month of March, 1889, he came to the Big Bend country and in 1891 he purchased the homestead filing on his present farm.  When he came here he settled on his claim of one hundred and sixty acres of raw land, and now owns three hundred and twenty acres of first class soil and all under cultivation.  He has the very best and most modern improvements, and a water system by which water is piped into his house and barn by means of a windmill and tank.  He makes a specialty of the culture of cereals.
     During December, 1881, Mr. Brindle took for his wife Jane Imhoff, who was born in Ohio, to Peter and Anna (Menson) Imhoff, both living in Reardan.  To this union three children were born, Ralph, Lule and Earl.  On May 15, 1900, the family was bereaved by the death of the wife and another.
     George W. Brindle is a member in good standing of Reardan Lodge, number eighty-four, I. O. O. F.  Although he came to the county with no money nor worldly possessions of any sort he is now doing well and considered in comfortable circumstances.
