JOHN W. STRINGER is an enterprising farmer engaged in the hop -growing industry and resides on a twenty-one acre farm near Grants Pass, of which he is the proprietor. He was born in Josephine county, March 16, 1872, the son of William and Sarah (Daniels) Stringer, the latter of whom was born in Missouri. In a very early day the father removed with ox teams from Illinois to Oregon, reaching this state in time to take part in the Rogue River Indian war. During the journey practically no trouble was experienced with the Indians, but a wagon train which made the trip just in advance was entirely destroyed by the Indians and all of the emigrants were massacred. To William and Sarah (Daniels) Stringer eight children were born.
John W. Stringer received a good common-school education and remained under the parental roof until he attained his majority, when he engaged in farming on his own account. One year later he purchased the farm on which he is now residing and by his own efforts has placed upon it the substantial improvements which are now in evidence. The farm contains twenty-one acres of very fertile soil and Mr. Stringer is making a specialty of growing hops, meeting with good success.
In 1901 he was married to Miss Nancy Davenport, a native of Missouri. In his political faith Mr. Stringer is an adherent of the principles and practices of the democratic party, although he gives the greater part of his attention to business affairs. He is one of the well known and respected farmers of his community, in which he has an excellent standing.
