About Henry Clay Harlow

Henry Clay Harlow was the second child of Oregon Pioneers Mahlon Hall Harlow and wife Frances Burrus Tandy. He was born September 7, 1838 in Lafayette County, Missouri, and traveled by covered wagon, as a child, with his parents to Oregon in 1851-1852.

Henry married Amanda Walker, daughter of Hugh Walker and Mary Reid, on October 22, 1871. Amanda was born about 1853 in Missouri and died May 29, 1947, in Colfax, Whitman County, Washington. There were only two known children, Lena and Park.

Henry was a blacksmith in his early years, and worked in mining districts in Idaho, Montana and California, before opening his own shop in Lane County. He gave up the shop and became a farmer. The Harlows were in Idaho in 1877, and owned a farm in Latah County, Idaho, in 1900. In 1910, they were living with son Park in Whitman County, Washington, when he listed his occupation as farmer. By 1920, they were living with daughter Lena in Farmington, Whitman County, Washington. Henry died there on October 17, 1930.
