Description Isaac "Ike" H. McCord. "County Recorder of Baker County, and one of the most popular young men in it, was born in Idaho, in 1866. He came to Baker County at an early age with his parents, and received his education in the academy located here at that time. After leaving school he entered the employ of S. B. McCord, and remained with him for a period of ten years. Then he accepted a position as book-keeper of the "Virtue" mine, and remained there several years. He then established himself in the blacksmithing business, a trade he had mastered while working for S. B. McCord. In 1890 he was nominated for County Recorder, and on his record as a public official he has again received the nomination for the same office on the Union ticket. As a public official he has not only won the esteem but the confidence of all with whom he comes in contact."
