This photo may have been taken before James Harrison Bird became Circuit Judge for the 7th Oregon District. We know he held that position in 1886, at the age of 29. When he served as circuit judge, he was based in The Dalles. Born in 1857, he was the son of James Milton Bird and Mary Ann Bird, who had moved to The Dalles from Yamhill County shortly before that. His extended family had come to Oregon in 1847. Though he came from a well-known family, I haven't been able to learn much about Judge Bird. I do know he died young in Pasadena, California, at the age of 33. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
