     LEONARD C. MALOTT lives at Malott, Washington, and is known as one of the substantial men of Okanogan county. He was born in Ontario, Canada, on October 11, 1843, the son of William and Mary Malott.  In 1865 our subject removed from his native place to California, and there married Miss Mary Hamilton.  Later they went to Nevada, then returned to California.  From California they journeyed north and in August, 1886, located on their present place.  Mr. Malott brought the first family to this vicinity, the other settlers there then being bachelors.  Since those early days Mr. Malott has given his attention to general farming and stock raising and has achieved a good success and has been favored with good prosperity on account of his industry and wisdom in managing the resources of the country.
     When he first came here Mr. Malott got his mail from Okanogan City, a small office where Waterville now stands.  All supplies were freighted in from Spokane or Sprague and roads were poor and infrequent.  But he has steadily labored on and has seen the wilds transformed to fertile farms and the country settled by progressive and industrious people who are making Okanogan one of the leading counties of the great state of Washington.
     To Mr. and Mrs. Malott three children have been born, Mrs. Ida Bennett, William G. and Reuben L.
