     GEORGE W. VANDERPOOL resides six miles north from Winthrop and is engaged in farming and stock raising.  He was born in Benton county, Oregon, on October 8, 1861, the son of Campbell and Louisa J. (Patterson) Vanderpool.  The father is retired in Oregon, but the mother is deceased.  Our subject was educated in the common schools of his native place and reared on the farm.  At the age of twenty he went to Latah county, locating four miles northwest from Moscow, where he proved up on a preemption.  This was his home until 1895 when he came to Okanogan county and took a homestead five miles north from Winthrop.  He owns this place at the present time, but is now living on the farm of Emil Ventzke, as a tenant.
     Mr. Vanderpool devotes his energy largely to stock raising, and also does general farming.  He has about fifty head of fine cattle and is one of the progressive and substantial men of the community.  He is a member of the M. W. A., and stands well in the county.
     One July 4, 1884, Mr. Vanderpool married Miss Martha, daughter of Francis and Sarah (Beasley) Rowland.  The father is deceased, but Mrs. Rowland is still living.  To Mr. and Mrs. Vanderpool seven children have been born, named as follows:  Marion Rowland, Louisa G., Grover Cleveland, George W., Jessie, William C. and Frederick.
