JOHN B. WAPATO dwells on an allotment
of six hundred and fifty acres, eight miles up the lake from Chelan.
He is the son of Peter and Hyacinth, members of the Entiat tribe, and was
born in Wenatchee on July 1, 1881. When of the proper age, John B.
was sent to the Carlisle school, Pennsylvania, and there received his education.
Since his return, he has given himself to farming and stock raising and
is one of the prosperous men of the Chelan country. He is a member
of the Catholic church. Politically he is a good strong Republican.
