GEORGE M. HUCK is one of the large land owners of Lincoln county and withal a prosperous and wealthy stockman. He resides about five miles northwest from Earl on an estate of sixteen hundred acres which is devoted entirely to pasture and hay. He is one of the younger men of the county and has brought to bear a wealth of enthusiasm in his labors the result of which has given him his present gratifying holding in land and stock.
George M. Huck was born in Racine county, Wisconsin, on June 14, 1871, the son of Michael and Magdalene Huck. The mother died while our subject was young. The father, who was born in Buffalo, New York, and went to Canada came to Wisconsin and after his wife's death in 1879, came on to the John Day valley, Oregon. In the spring of 1883, he journeyed thence to Lincoln county and took a homestead. His energies were given to stock raising and he has purchased land in addition to his homestead until he now owns an estate of twenty-two hundred acres which is entirely utilized for pasture and hay. At the present time he is on an extended trip through California and the East. George M. Huck remained in the east attending school at the old home place in Wisconsin until 1887, when he came with his father to Lincoln county. He has labored in conjunction with his father ever since and they have some fine bands of well bred stock besides other property. The land lies along Lake creek and is provided with abundance of water for all purposes.
Mr. Huck has never seen fit to launch out on the uncertain sea of matrimony yet is one of the substantial and highly respected men of the section.
