Urquhart, James

Born in Ferintosh in Ross-shire and sailed to New York in 1851 and joined a wagon train in the Oregon Trail. He worked at a variety of trades, but arrived in Washington State in time to vote in the territory's first election. Settling in Eden Prairie, he sent for his wife and children. He laid out the town of Napavine, farmed and had a merchant's business, was country treasurer, postmaster and was elected three times to the territorial legislature.
