Eclus Pollock

William Eclus Pollock (he never used his first name) was born in Oregon on November 7, 1863, the son of Sarah McClelland and Joseph Pollock, a schoolteacher. He was attending school in Portland, Oregon in 1890-1891, and married Martha Susan ____ in 1896. They had one son: Archie Eclus Pollock (1896), who had a son, also named Eclus Pollock (1918). The label shown here, however, was undoubtedly that of the senior-most Eclus inasmuch as his street address in the 1930 census exactly matches that on the label. He was a County Assessor in 1930. Eclus Pollock died December 5, 1939; Martha outlived him, dying in 1952, and it may be then that his mineral collection was sold.
