A sturdy son of the Fatherland who has chosen the free institutions of America for his dwelling and who has manifested patriotism and loyalty to the government in a becoming manner, and who is now one of the highly respected and prosperous residents of the reservation portion of Nez Perces County, it is quite in compliance with the province of the volume of history to grant him a representation therein.

George Pahl was born in Rendsburg, province of Holstein, Germany, on March 10, 1870, being the son of John and Abel Pahl, also natives of Germany. George attended school from six until fifteen, acquiring a good education. In 1893 he came by steamer to New York, thence direct to Spokane, where he labored on a farm until the spring of 1899, when he came to his present location, about two miles east from Nez Perce, here he purchased the relinquishment to his farm. It is one of the choice places in this community and has been well improved by our subject. He is a skillful farmer and is being rewarded for his labors in abundant crops.

Mr. Pahl is a member of the W. W., at Nez Perce and is also a member of the Lutheran Church. He is a progressive and enterprising man of excellent standing and as yet has chosen to remain in the quiet security of the bachelor.
