Born in Indiana in 1828, Harvey John Meacham and his brother Alfred B. Meacham were early settlers in Eastern Oregon, who founded the town of Meacham in Umatilla County in 1863. Born in Indiana in 1828, Harvey joined his brother as a partner in Meacham Brothers, which operated Meacham Station, a stage route on the way to Pendleton.

Harvey died young, killed while falling a tree in 1872, when a falling branch struck him on the temple. His brother Alfred went on to become, among other accomplishments, the author of "Wigwam and Warpath, or the Royal Chief in Chains".
