     HARRISON GLASCOCK lives about four miles southwest from Downs, where he owns an estate of one thousand acres.  The farm is one of the choice ones in the section and is well known over the entire county as the Bigham place.  Two hundred acres of it are bottom land, under an irrigating ditch, the balance being grain and pasture land.  Mr. Glascock has a residence commensurate with a large estate, beautifully situated amid shade trees and other pleasant surroundings, large barns, outbuildings, and other improvements.  He has also a large orchard, and altogether his estate is beautiful, valuable, and pleasant.
     Harrison Glascock was born in Yolo county, California, on January 8, 1855, being the son of George and Elizabeth (Brook) Glascock, natives of Virginia.  The father emigrated to California in the early 'fifties, settling on a ranch in Yolo county, where he remained until his death in 1883.  He was one of the very early settlers and became a man of prominence and wealth.  The mother accompanied her husband in his journeys.  Our subject was educated in the district schools of California until eighteen, then followed farming until he came to Lincoln county in 1883.  He first settled on a ranch near where Harrington now stands, where he remained until 1894, in which year he came to his present location. Crab creek flows through the estate and furnishes the water for his irrigating ditch.  Mr. Glascock devotes his attention mostly to raising horses and cattle, having some fine thoroughbred stock.  He is one of the wealthy men of this section and has gained his holdings through his own labor and skill.
     In 1888, occurred the marriage of Mr. Glascock and Frances J., daughter of J. N. McKinney, a respected citizen of Oregon.  To this union, four children have been born, Mabel, Laura, Viola, and Horace E.
